Jesse McTavish

North Bondi Fish

Jesse McTavish grew up with a love of surfing and fishing and a deep respect for the ocean instilled in him from a young age by his father, surfboard designer Bob McTavish. 

Since starting his cooking career in the mid-1990s, Jesse has worked for some of Australia’s most renowned restaurants and caf├ęs, from the Beach Hotel in Byron Bay to Top Paddock and The Kettle Black in Melbourne.

Jesse is passionate about sourcing quality ingredients and building relationships with suppliers. He’s also a keen forager, and has been experimenting with ingredients found in the Bondi Beach area such as sea rocket, which has a similar flavour to wasabi and grows prolifically along the Sydney coastline and in the dunes. 

Jesse says: “The ocean has been the ultimate constant in my life, so it’s a privilege to catch, cook and protect what it offers me.”
