Sydney-born and trained, Chef Joshua Askew started his career at the age of 15 at his local pub, where he fell in love with food and the fast pace of the kitchen. From there, Askew climbed the ranks through various fine dining restaurants and 5-star international hotel chains.

Askew studied at Ryde TAFE and at 29 became the youngest executive chef in the international hotel group, Swissotel. Throughout his career, working on Daydream Island was the most challenging with multiple outlets and battling natural elements like cyclones helped shape him to be the leader he is today.

Askew was brought up with a deep respect for the ocean and goes spearfishing and diving regularly. This led him to become a finalist twice in the Ora King awards for best salmon dish in Australia, taking him to Japan and New Zealand. Askew was a proud ambassador for Ora King Salmon three years running and currently mentors at TAFE NSW for upcoming chefs. 

Joshua now resides as Executive Chef at award winning Abode at Parkroyal Darling Harbour, Sydney hotel.

apprenticeship in various luxury hotels and resorts. To further improve his skills, he moved to

Australia and finished his apprenticeship in Park Hyatt Hotel, Canberra.

Vico fell in love with the lifestyle and broad cuisine of Australia.  He moved to North

Queensland and worked with fresh produce and local ingredients across casual and fine dining


Most recently Vico has joined Parkroyal Darling Harbour, Sydney as Head Chef of award-

winning Abode where he continues to create exciting dishes using local and seasonal produce.
