Kenton’s family moved to the NSW mid-north coast in 1981 and he began his career at the tender age of 10, mashing bananas for smoothies and making the famous chocolate-coated bananas at the Big Banana. He has been cooking in the region now for 20 years, culminating as owner/chef of the highly regarded Misty’s restaurant in Dorrigo. Kenton is both passionate and well informed about the region and its cuisine. During his time operating Misty’s, he took part in initiatives such as “Paddock to the Plate”, a program using local produce that integrated food and cooking styles with seasonal produce from our backyards or growers’ markets. He has participated in many food festivals and cooking demonstrations and has conducted cooking schools celebrating cuisines from around the world. His latest project working with the Coffs Harbour City Council as project officer for the Harvest publication (a Regional Cookbook) is an exciting development for the region. This is Kenton's third year as a tutor at Camp Creative.
