Spice It Up Thai owner and chef, Matthew Jackson, is a local through and through.

In keeping with his own success as a chef and restaurateur, Matt has given another local lad a leg up.

Robert Gower has just completed and ‘aced’ his apprenticeship with Spice It Up Thai. ‘Robert has worked at Spice It Up Thai since he was eighteen – almost straight from Mullum High School. It’s a credit to him and I’m proud to see him winning awards for his skill and aptitude in his final months as an apprentice chef,’ Matt told me.

Robert received Apprentice of the Year (Certificate III Commercial Cookery) at Kingscliff TAFE, and also Commercial Cookery Student of the Year. Although Robert finished his apprenticeship in mid-March this year, he’s staying on at Spice It Up Thai to Matt and the Spice It Up team’s delight.

Spice It Up Thai is situated in the Mullumbimby Bowling Club.
