Owner, Managing Director, Executive Chef
Belinda spent her adolescence growing up in the hospitality industry, as she managed the restaurants that her parents owned. Following a period where she later managed a high-profile national catering firm, Belinda decided to launch her own company that would ultimately delight clients Sydney-wide.
Belinda has a true passion for all things culinary and believes that food holds immense significance when celebrating milestones and special occasions. The most rewarding aspect of her job is being able to enrich the lives of people through the magic of beautiful food and making their celebration that little bit more special.
When she’s not at Flavours, Belinda enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons.
Favourite menu item: Belinda can’t resist Flavours’ mini Mexican hot dogs.
Having worked with food since the age of fifteen, Chris has vast experience in numerous supervisory and managerial roles in the hospitality industry. Chris was the first employee that Belinda took on following the launch of Flavours and his role has evolved significantly; having first started making sandwiches and delivering orders, he now provides leadership and vision to help shape the future of Flavours with Belinda.
Chris spends his weekends with his family, boating and beaching, as well as experimenting in the kitchen. He also admits to a fondness for Microsoft Excel, which satisfies his inner geek.
Favourite menu item: Chris loves anything with our sate chicken skewers – yum!

Sharon joined Belinda as Flavours second employee in 2006, shortly after General Manager Chris, who is incidentally her youngest son, making Flavours quite the family affair.

Her experience and dedication have helped make Flavours the business it is today. Nearly 10 years later and with a keen eye for detail, Sharon’s expertise is central to managing our quality assurance procedures and overseeing the logistics of all outgoing orders.
Sharon has been an integral part of Flavours almost since its origin and Belinda says one of the smartest business decisions she ever made.
Sharon loves travel, dining out, catching a movie or just relaxing with friends around the barbecue with a nice glass of wine.
Favourite menu item: Sharon is particularly fond of our Chinese style meatballs
