A native of New Zealand, Jason Roberts is known for his charismatic smile and engaging personality. Having grown up in a family of culinary professionals, Jason discovered his passion for food at a young age. Turning it into a career, he spent seven years as an Executive Chef at Bistro Moncur in Sydney, Australia, where he was immersed in the traditions and techniques of French cuisine by his mentor, Damien Pignolet. His accolades caught the attention of Australia’s Channel 9, where he became the host of Fresh, a cooking program that aired five days a week in Australia and New Zealand.
In January 2003, Jason was introduced to the United States on ABC’s Good Morning America. He has also appeared on The Wayne Brady Show, The Sharon Osbourne Show, E!, The Style Network’s You’re Invited, New York City’s morning show Ali & Jack, and Talk Soap with Lisa Rinna. In 2005, Jason hosted the award-winning food talk show Jason Roberts’ Taste, on the PAX Television Network which earned him two American Accolade Awards for “Best Host” and “Best Health & Lifestyle Program.”
Splitting his time between Sydney and New York City, Jason regularly travels the world as a guest speaker at top food shows and culinary events. He is the co-founder of rocket+rabbit – an artisanal brand featuring healthy snacks that are hand-crafted from pure wholefoods to fuel and heal – and he is Executive Chef at The Bistro at Manly Pavilion.
