Growing up on Sydney's beautiful northern beaches there wasn't much that would drag Hayden away from the surf and sand but there was one thing that was always guaranteed to get him home by sun down, his Mum's cooking. Areas of speciality include Speakers. Mum, Jo-Anne a Home Economist, spotted her sons enthusiasm for cooking at an early age and it was this eagerness to learn (or maybe the appeal of a kitchen hand) that saw Jo-Anne teaching a young Hayden everything she knew about food.
