Cam, Selina Eli & Ollie

Since taking over The Fat Duck in 2016, we've loved every moment in this stunning part of New Zealand. Our pride lies in offering exceptional hospitality to our guests, and we're dedicated to evolving our business and nurturing our team, all while actively engaging with and supporting our local community. But let's be honest, Eli and Ollie are in it for the after-school milkshakes, marshmallow munching, and hot chips.

Joshua Raynel

Back in 2016, I went for an interview with Cam and Selina in Gore, thinking the job was in Gore and with no idea of where Te Anau was. Fast forward to 2021, I have been proudly working at The Fat Duck restaurant since Cam and Selina took over the restaurant in June 2016, helping to mould the restaurant into what it is today. I enjoy playing video games, cooking for others, and road trips in my car in my spare time.

Sous Chef

Jovin (AJ) Doron

AJ has been with us since December 2016. Down-to-earth, an epic team player, and always up for a good laugh. He is passionate about food, and he brings a delicious Filipino twist to our seasonal menus. Off the clock, AJ's all about action. Whether he's sinking hoops on the basketball court, conquering Queenstown's downhill trails, or carving up the slopes on his trusty snowboard, he's always on the move.

Dupinder (Dupi) Saroya

Dupi joined our team back in November 2016 as a part-time trainee while pursuing a Chef's Diploma at SIT Invercargill. After completing studies, he felt the itch for fresh adventures and a change of scenery, which brought him to Te Anau. Under the mentorship of Chef Cam, he has become an indispensable asset to our kitchen thanks to his determination and work ethic. On his time off, Dupi enjoys playing cricket, learning new skills, and treasuring quality family time.

Accounts Administrator

Diana Keith

Diana initially joined the team in 2016, and after a career shift into accounts, she came back to The Fat Duck in 2021. She's the wizard behind the scenes, everyday admin, streamlining processes, managing bookkeeping, jazzing up our social media and welcoming new hires during one-on-one inductions. On Saturday nights, you will also find her supporting the team as a Duty Manager. Outside of work, she loves overseas adventures, visiting family, beach road trips, farm walks and community volunteering.

Granil (Neil) D’souza

Starting his Kiwi journey in 2019 for studies, Neil, originally from India, became a part of our team in April 2023. With three years of Auckland living and bartending in the bustling city under his belt, he developed a love for mixology. Neil sprinkles his beverage expertise into our cocktail menu, showcasing the best seasonal flavours. Off the job, he is a tech enthusiast, always on the lookout for ways to make our world a better place.

Haylee Bruwer

Immigrating from South Africa, Haylee and her family made NZ their new home in June 2023. She brings a wealth of hospitality experience from her days on ships, at country clubs, and in cafes, and she's excited to embark on a long and exciting career with The Fat Duck team. During her downtime, Haylee transforms into a gardening maestro, always pondering what to grow, trim, or sow. Her family moments are best spent outdoors, whether it's bike rides or unwinding at the pump track.
