Christian Blair

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more passionate and knowledgeable about cocktails, wine and hospitality than Christian Blair. For three years Christian managed the multi-award-winning Darlinghurst cocktail bar Eau de Vie and subsequently worked behind the bar at Rockpool Bar & Grill.

A former bar industry consultant and trainer, and a finalist in several international cocktail competitions, Christian understands what it takes to make the perfect cocktail. Equally passionate about wine, he also knows how to curate an intriguing and fascinating list that is as creative and innovative as the food it’s designed to complement.

James Richardson

Scottish-born chef James Richardson has worked extensively in prestigious fine-dining kitchens in Europe and Australia. His food at Annata is innovative and technically complex with a focus on flavour and texture.

His menus, which change regularly, are predominantly driven by the produce available from his suppliers.  In Sydney James has worked with Ross Lusted at The Bridge Room and with Pasi Petanen at Café Paci and brings the technical skills and innovative approach of his former mentors to his own unique menu at Annata.

Fuji Taukatelata

Fuji started her chef career in Sydney, but joins the Annata team as Sous Chef after a two year stint working in high pressure, quality kitchens in London, including at 2-Michelin star restaurant, The Ledbury (as part of her AQUA/HTN’s Young Culinary Achiever Scholarship).
