Tim Pak Poy is a chef and owner of The Wharf in Sydney. Trained as a perfumer, in 1983 Pak Poy followed a passion for food, securing a job with the celebrated Cheong Liew at Adelaide's Nediz Neddy's. Moving to Sydney, he worked with Anders Ousback, had a stint at Bilson's and then in 1988 became head chef at Claude's before buying the restaurant six years later.
