Peter van Lunn, head chef
Peter van Lunn grew up and developed his trade in the Brisbane region in restaurants such as the James St Bistro, Mondo Organics and Emporium Hotel. He also spent several years at some of the top restaurants in Paris such as La Societe and Spring. He recently returned to Australia with his family and brings a wealth of international and Australian experience back to Brisbane and to The Balfour Kitchen.
“The Balfour Kitchen is a friendly, bistro style concept which still offers fine dining but with a much more familial atmosphere,” head chef Peter van Lunn said.
“The food is flavour and produce-driven but it’s not elaborate, in fact there’s only three to five prime ingredients per plate. There’s a lot more heart and soul in it, it’s a lot more honest and simple.”
“It’s hearty soul food,” Peter said. “It’s healthy food but it’s also a little bit decadent at the same time. I try not to touch anything too much but let the flavours and produce speak for themselves.
“We’ve also tried to keep with the theme of the old converted Queenslander – classic dishes but with a twist.”
Maria Hobcraft, head breakfast chef
Maria Hobcraft has more than a decades' experience in the industry, starting in restaurants in New Zealand and the UK before moving to Australia and settling into some of Brisbane's most iconic restaurants and cafes. Her most recent work experience began at Tangalooma Resort, before moving onto some of Brisbane's fast paced cafes including Jam Cafe and Queenie's - where she found her natural flair for high teas, delicious cakes and other sweet treats.
In her position as head breakfast chef for The Balfour Kitchen, Maria believes in supporting low food miles, fresh and seasonal produce and creating meals from the heart. Maria and her team make everything onsite from jams to her very own chardonnay hollandaise, baked eggs and fresh daily juices.
The Balfour Breakfast menu is innovative, seasonal and modern Australian. Enjoy everything from strawberry bircher muesli, baked eggs florentine with fontina cheese and chilli jam or simply free range eggs cooked the way you like them. See menu here >>
