Your Chef


Wallace Mua

Executive Chef Hilton Hotel, Auckland.
I have French influences in my style of cooking and I have a strong culture connection with my home Polynesian. But in saying that New Zealand is a mixing pot of different cultures which is super beneficial for chefs with regards to the flavours, styles of cooking and techniques we encounter.

Was a little nervous about the whole ‘cooking thing’ however the chef and the people I cooked with made things a breeze – plus heaps of fun.
