John Frid - Executive Chef

John Frid - Executive Chef

John Frid

After leaving a life of snowy ski slopes behind, executive chef John Frid took to the side of Robert Buchanan acquiring the knowledge from his impressively appointed mentor, to work his way up to sous chef after just two years. Between heading the kitchen for the 2010 IOC Toronto Olympic bid and leading the team into service at the 2000 JUNO music awards, John has acquired a broad repertoire of experience and knowledge that is reflected in the high quality menu offering we serve at Tequila Mockingbird. 

Craving a vast change from the Canadian scenery, Frid emigrated to sunny Queensland where he eventually ended up crossing paths with Michael Fegent. A quick flight to Sydney and Frid knew that he’d found his home away from home in the Tequila Mockingbird team.
