Founder of Just The Sizzle, Christine Matheson, has been a professional chef in Brisbane, Melbourne and now Hobart. She was owner/chef of 10 restaurants in Brisbane and on Queensland’s coast, including her iconic Possum’s Australian Food in New Farm and the Tiger Garden Restaurant in the Singapore Pavilion at Expo 88.
Her restaurants have been written up in Australia, and also in the USA – San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Detroit. No small feat!
Her other career, as an editor, journalist and author pushed her to set up Just the Sizzle, to help and support an industry that’s now in crisis. A resource that chefs, staff and foodies can rely on to deliver, and begin the conversations.
For the last few years, Christine has worked as a judge at the Royal Hobart Show Fine Food Awards, and is currently busy on a television documentary series based on her two great loves of food and story.
