Meet our Head Chef, Harry!

Harry joined the Club Central team in July 2021 with over 20 years’ experience in the food industry. He is the Head Chef for all food venues at Club Central including Central Cucina, Above 8 Rooftop Bar & Lounge and Southern Sydney Event Centre. Through extensive collaboration Harry was able to design unique and authentic flavours, tailor-made menus each food venue across Club Central.

Harry’s love for different cultures and desire to experience new flavours drove the motivation behind creating an everchanging international street food section for Central Cucina. As his aim was to take each person on an exciting journey throughout the world. Another strong inspiration behind some of the dishes is Harry’s love for European flavours. From fresh pasta to an exclusive éclair range, Central Cucina’s menu has a rich Italian and French influence.
