Amy's cooking career started in 2001, when the former visual art student naively applied for a dishy job at the acclaimed Must Wine Bar. With a new found love of hospitality & her degree on the back burner, Amy commenced an apprenticeship under Russell Blaikie and later worked under Riccardo Momesso in Melbourne. Heading West again, Amy got as far as Albany where she worked as a private chef to the likes of Lady Gaga and Michelin starred chef, Shane Osborn.
In 2014 , Amy bought Liberté, a run-down, Parisian inspired bar inside the historic London Hotel. Her aim was simple; to introduce some good food, a solid bar program & warm welcoming service and in no time at all she had secured Albany as a place in many food lover's destination bucket list.
Winner of a swag of awards from the most respected food critics and publications in Australia, Amy has most recently been recognised with One Hat in the 2018 Australian Good Food Guide.
