Jacqui Challinor

Executive Chef at Nomad
Participating in their 4th CEO CookOff


I'm helping OzHarvest raise $3,000,000 to feed those in need in the OzHarvest CEO CookOff

I'm participating in OzHarvest's 2019 CEO CookOff, where top CEOs, chefs and companies work together to make a difference to Australia’s most vulnerable and reduce food waste.

We'd love your support in helping our organisation reach our fundraising goal! Every $1 donated to OzHarvest means they can deliver 2 meals to those in need.

Watch the video to see what this means to the people OzHarvest helps.

Stay tuned for the journey!

My Bio

Jacqui Challinor’s food career began as an apprentice at About Life, before she joined the ranks at Sydney hospitality group, Merivale. She spent the next few years working under Christopher Whitehead (Mad Cow) and Lauren Murdoch and Sebastien Lutaud at Felix, before she gained her first head chef role at Xanthi working alongside David Tsirekas. Jacqui joined the newly opened NOMAD in 2013. She was drawn to the hands-on processes of cheese, charcuterie and bread making as well as working with the heart of NOMAD’s kitchen, the wood-fired oven. Jacqui now oversees a team of chefs and the menu at NOMAD which focuses on Mediterranean-style share dishes and house-made produce.
