About the authors

Yorkshire-born Donovan Cooke started out at London's Savoy restaurant at the age of 18. He worked with Michel Roux for more than three years at the Waterside Inn and, at the age of 23, joined legendary chef Marco Pierre White at Harveys as Head Chef. Two years later they opened the Restaurant Marco Pierre White at the Hyde Park Hotel, London which was subsequently awarded three Michelin-starred status.

After early training in Melbourne, Philippa Sibley moved to London where she climbed the ranks at Quaglino's. From there she went to work for Marco Pierre White at Canteen, where she met Donovan. They married in 1994 and spent a year working in the three Michelin-starred La Cote St Jacques at Joigny in France.

The couple then left Europe for Philippa's home city of Melbourne with the idea of opening up their own establishment, one which offered quality classical French cuisine. After working at Mietta's restaurant together where Donovan was head chef, Donovan and Philippa took the opportunity to join Frank Heaney in opening their first restaurant. Previously Frank had been maitre d' at Jacques Reymond's for eight years. est est est, in South Melbourne, opened to critical acclaim in early 1997. This was followed by the opening of their second restaurant, Luxe, in St Kilda, two years later.
