Andrew Mirosch has been a chef for more than 30 years. In 1988, he set up the iconic Two Small Rooms in Brisbane (with Michael Conrad, who now owns restaurant Two) which won numerous American Express Awards and was inducted into the American Express Hall of Fame. He then repeated this success with his restaurant About Face, also twice winning Gourmet Travellers Award for Best Restaurant in Queensland. In 1995, he gave up his chefs whites for a fishing rod, to follow his dream of becoming a professional fisherman. The kitchen lured him back however and after owning a successful seafood restaurant on Stradbroke Island, moved back to the mainland and is now executive chef at the award winning Lurleen’s restaurant at Sirromet winery.
Andrew is a fierce supporter of Queensland producers and travels to shows and festival such as the Brisbane Ekka, the Brisbane Good Food and Wine Show and Hervey Bay Seafood Festival to perform cooking demonstrations and promote locally grown and caught produce.
