Welcome to the podcast of our Passionate Inspirational Fine Dining Extraordinaire Phillip Nordt.
“Chef Of THE Nation”.
When I sat down with Phillip, (February 2021) I actually got more than I bargained for. He must have been just, “ready’ to talk, because he opened up in so many ways and about so many things. You will enjoy today’s podcast, Phillip Nordt the licencee holder of The AWARD winning OTB On The Beach restaurant in Arorangi. Recently OTB has won the highest Air New Zealand EXCELLENCE award. He spoke to me with the energy of a Maserati engine with the chrome of a Rolls Royce! Fast and furious like a Toyota Supra!
Phillip chatted to me like an old friend, the kind that you sit with and reminisce about the good times, the buoyancy of life and also the struggling times. He spoke from an age of 17 years old, and took me on a journey until now at his age and wisdom of 65 years old.
Everyone that he mentions in this podcast, Phillip speaks from a place of learning, adventure, gratitude and of course a place of love. He appreciates everyone in his life and he could not wait to share with you all the fantastic hospitality and culinary journey that has taken him from Europe, to New Zealand and now his home the Pacific - Rarotonga.
After our podcast recording Phillip cooked us an amazing meal. Effortlessly “Thrown” together in all his exuberance and style!
Check out his local cooking show on his website www.thechefstable.co.ck
I will never forget this podcast recording, of truth telling and generosity. He couldn’t help himself, maintained his spirit for being that ‘teacher and mentor’ and gave me a lesson or 7.
Thank you Phillip, a personal note from my self Chantal Napa. XOX
