John McLeay fell into his career as a chef after 2 weeks of work experience at The Australian Hotel in Melbourne. His love affair with Asian food developed after a trip to Thailand when one drunken night he ate fried grasshoppers from a street stall and found out he actually quite liked the taste! John is a self-taught chef, experimenting with Asian flavours until he finds the perfect balance between the four elements of taste: hot, sour, sweet and salty. He has been head chef for many years, but opened Red Spice Road in 2007.
