Chef Thomas Damm
Owner and Director Thomas Damm is a Michelin-trained chef. Born and bred in Germany, Thomas has refined his culinary skills in restaurants around the world.
Professionally it took him some detours before
becoming a chef. After being a mechanic, then studying economics and engineering, Thomas finally found what his real passion is, food.
He has the fortune to hone his craft in Germany’s Michelin starred kitchens. In 2010 Thomas moved to Melbourne and he is still here today. Working in the Melbourne Club, also Stokehouse, spending the longest time in one kitchen with 3.5 years. Running the kitchens in various cafes like Las Chicas showed him a wide variety of Australian foods. But the love of fine dining brought him to private dining.
Utilising his gastronomic knowledge and combining it with innovative processes, private dining is the best way to showcase his craft while you enjoy a night with family and friends together. And that is what Damm Good provides
for you, a dining experience to remember!
The future of food is delicious and sustainable.
At Damm Good Catering, we have made sustainability our top priority. To be more sustainable is a process and an evolution. Here are the green practices that we have commited to on a daily basis.
100% of food waste during production has been used in compost. What initially started as a hobby and a personal project of Chef Thomas is now an essential part of our business practices.
Growing our own herbs
The composted soil is then used in our herb garden where we grow most of our herbs including Australian native herbs such as Saltbush and Lemon Myrtle, which you can find across our menus.
Seasonal ingredients are fresher, healthier and tastier.
We source them locally to support our local suppliers and to reduce our carbon emissions. This also helps us to reduce food waste and the energy required for longer food storage as they are at their freshest. Additionally, it keeps our creative flare alive!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We constantly endeavour to reduce single-use plastic materials in our practices. We use recyclable or reusable items as much as we can and aim for a plastic-free and zero waste work environment in the near future.
Through our sustainable practices, you can rest assured that your food is responsibly sourced and that you are taking part in our collective efforts in giving back to mother nature and looking after our home planet.
