Rhiannon grew up in the Victorian country, in an area where farming and fishing are plentiful, encouraging her to use fresh produce in her meals.  Her interest in food and cooking can be traced back to her grandparents who are exceptional cooks of Hungarian descent.  Starting with a four year apprenticeship with Ian Hewitson at Tolarno Bar and Bistro, St Kilda, Rhiannon is now the pastry chef at Rockpool.
