Palisa Anderson

“The North West is incredibly beautiful and the quality of the produce is mind-blowing. Anyone who is interested in food really shouldn’t go past this event – it’s the North West’s time to shine! ”

A second-generation restaurateur, Palisa Anderson has had a lifelong fascination with food, ingredients and the people behind them. This curiosity led her to work and travel for 10 years, living in Hong Kong, London, New York and Tokyo, before returning to Sydney and rejoining the family business, Chat Thai. Today, Palisa splits her time between overseeing five restaurants in Sydney and running her organic farm, Boon Luck Farm, in Byron Bay. Through her work across the farm and family restaurants, Palisa has become a shining light in cultivating community around food and produce in Australia.
