What’s Daryl Kerr’s culinary style:
Old school cooking with modernized style. While the food I create falls clearly on the modernized style I never forget the importance of classic “Old School” cookery. I’m known for taking creativity to the next level and designing avant-garde menu items that are not only exquisite but also presented in an artful way. Culinary creation and plating is an art and I like putting everything very funky and cool on the plate. Like any art form, influence can be drawn out from the most abstract stimulus and there is always room for fresh ideas.
