Steve is from Adelaide, he grew up in Unley Park, one of six kids. His outback adventures began after school when he tried his hand at jackarooing near Broken Hill, followed by a brief stint on Kangaroo Island which is where the hospitality seed was planted. He then opened his own restaurant in Broken Hill which is where the film catering career began. It's a journey, and an inspiring one.
Now retired in Clare, he's handed the tongs and bus over to his daughter Rachael.
