About Tobie

Tobie Puttock began his career working in Melbourne’s, Caffe e Cucina before travelling to picturesque Lake Como in Italy to work at the beautiful, Hotel Florence. After years of perfecting his culinary skills and Italian, Tobie travelled to England to work at the River Café where he worked alongside Jamie Oliver, who became a close friend.

After further stints in Italy and Switzerland, Tobie returned in 2000 to Melbourne, Australia to set up restaurant, Termini which went on to win ‘Best Italian Restaurant 2002′ at the Young Australian Achiever Awards. That same year his old mate Jamie presented him with a new challenge – to return to the UK to become Head Chef of the first Fifteen Restaurant, a social enterprise to teach under-privileged youths to become chefs in a gourmet environment. Tobie seized the opportunity and was instrumental in helping Fifteen, London achieve its status as ‘Tatler’s – Restaurant of the Year’ in 2003.

In 2005, Tobie returned home to Melbourne to establish Australia’s own Fifteen Restaurant and Charitable Foundation. Opening in September 2006, Tobie continued Jamie and the Fifteen Foundation’s work giving 15-20 under privileged Australian youths each year the opportunity, training and support to become qualified chefs.

Tobie’s honest, light-hearted approach and passion for topics such as organics, sustainability, seasonality, and ethical eating, has seen him in high demand as a guest on some of Australia’s favorite television programs, The Circle, Good Morning Australia and Ready Steady Cook and writing for Australian titles such as Good Taste Magazine, Delicious and Sunday Life. Tobie also appears regularly at major food events around Australia including the Good Food and Wine Show, Organic Expo, Great Barrier Feast and Gluten Free Expo.

Since returning to Melbourne, Tobie has featured in the Channel 10 hit series, Jamie’s Kitchen – Australia (2006) and Lifestyle’s FOOD TV series, Tobie and Matt – Europe and Asia (2008) as well as a role as Guest Judge with Channel 7’s ratings hit My Kitchen Rules.

Tobie has written and released three best selling cook books, Daily Italian (2006), Italian Local (2008), and Cook like an Italian (2010) and more recently a series of short format eBooks that are available on the itunes store in 25 countries. Tobie has also completed works on a book based around a healthy and balanced lifestyle that is due for release in 2015 by Penguin.

In 2013 Tobie started a you tube channel named Utobia and 2014 the channel was rebranded to “Tobie Puttock” and has proudly become part of Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube network.
