Joondalup Resort Receives High Honours from Australian Hotels Association



Executive Sous Chef Patrick Carlin awarded Certificate of Merit in Cookery Services.

Patrick Carlin, the Executive Sous Chef at Joondalup Resort, was honoured with the Certificate of Merit in Cookery Services at the AHA 2013 Accommodation Industry Awards on Monday evening. The annual AHA Awards took place at the Hotel Industry Gala Ball, a lavish affair regarded as one of the top social events in Western Australia. The awards ceremony recognised the top performers in the service industry.  

“Winning the Certificate of Merit was a fantastic achievement,” said Carlin. “To be recognised by my peers and the other great chefs around town makes me feel like I'm doing something right.”

The Certificate of Merit in Cookery Services provides major accolades for the quality of cuisine. This award honors Carlin as well as the dining innovations taking place at Joondalup Resort. The dining facilities at the Resort provide a variety of fresh mouth-watering flavours and an electric new vibe to the area of Joondalup. But Carlin is quick to say he is not working alone on providing such an experience.

“We have a great team at the Resort,” said Carlin. “Without our team, I would not be able to win these awards.”

Carlin’s appointment as Executive Sous Chef was a natural progression of years of hard work in the luxury service industry. His first professional appointments were at a Michelin Star Restaurant in the UK and later, Five Star Hotels such as the Hyatt and the Duxton. When Joondalup called in January 2010, partnering with a luxury resort known for its incredible ambiance seemed like a natural choice.

Carlin started as a Sous Chef at Bistro 38, promoting to Chef De Cuisine in just a few short months. By October, he was promoted to the role of Executive Sous Chef. Today, he works hard to bring a classic style and a sense of fun to the menu at Joondalup Resort, an achievement now formally recognised by fellow industry players.
