Note: Paul Blain set up The Tamarind - a small high class retreat in an idyllic spot beside Gardners Falls in Maleny ten years ago. Recently he sold the Tamarind to the prestigious Spicers Group of five star retreats, boutique hotels and lodges, and they persuaded Paul to stay on as chef and retreat host-manager.
Paul was classically trained in French and Italian cuisine before working at the original Darley Street Thai in Sydney in 1990 before establishing Chilli Jam Café in Noosa. Under the guidance of world famous Australian chef, David Thompson, Paul discovered the wonderful flavours and complexities of Thai cuisine. His continuing love affair with Thai cooking led him to travel to Thailand regularly to expand his knowledge and broaden his understanding of ingredients, techniques and recipes
