Boon holds a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery Hospitality and is our Chef at Choklits Surrey Hills! We call her by her preferred name, Lai.
Over to Lai…
I have been working in the food industry for almost 30 years. I have worked in a few restaurants but prior to working at Choklits, I was a Chef Manager in the aged care industry for over 10 years. During that time I was nominated for the 2016 National Finalist for the Facility Catering Service award which I’m very proud of.
I understand the importance of nutrition from raising 2 children of my own. I am passionate about creating tasty and nutritionally balanced meals for the children. I believe every meal is an opportunity to teach them how important it is to eat healthy. All my food are cooked fresh on the day using the freshest ingredients I can source and in line with the Choklits philosophy.
When I’m not at Choklits I love travelling with my family, I also enjoy knitting and reading.
The funniest thing a child has ever said to me was “I want to cut my hair really short, so I look like my brother!”
