A sizzling performance


One young Albany chef sizzled on stage with celebrity cook Curtis Stone at the Ord Valley Muster in Kununurra this month.

Daniel Sharp of Sharp Infusion performed with Curtis Stone at Kimberley Kitchen at Celebrity Tree Park on May 18.

“It was a live cooking demo in front of 300 people, he cooked five dishes and I was helping him out on stage,” he said.

“It was really cool, I learnt a huge amount about my stage presentation and how to do things a bit differently. He was such a nice guy and it was a really good team to work with.”

Mr Sharp also helped out friend and WA chef Don Hancey with %catering at the Kimberley Fine Diamonds Corporate Circle at the Kimberley Moon Experience, where he cooked for artists including Jimmy Barnes and Vanessa Amorosi.

“That was cool, we cooked on the banks of the Ord River in a makeshift kitchen,” he said.

As part of a busy program at the muster, he also cooked for the %Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. “I would love to be a %celebrity chef, on my own show, something along the lines of The Cook and the Chef,” he said.

Mr Sharp will be running cooking classes in Albany in June and July.
