    Darren Robertson was introduced to food by Michelin-starred UK chef Mark Raffan. At 24 he moved to Australia to work for Tetsuya Wakuda, becoming Tetsuya's head chef. Darren is one of the judges on Channel 10's popular series Recipe to Riches. Mark LaBrooy has been cooking since he was 18. He completed his apprenticeship at Tetsuya's and then spent seven years travelling, two of those years working as sous chef at Josef, a fine dining restaurant in Zurich. It was during what was supposed to be brief visit back to Sydney, that Mark and two of his close mates discussed the idea of opening a café with a difference. On a whim, they went to look at a run-down chicken shop in Bronte that had just come up for lease, and that day Three Blue Ducks was born.
