darren purchese A pastry chef with a sweet tooth and a flair for culinary theatrics Darren Purchese may be, but from an early age he has made a mean cheese on toast – and still does – as Chefs Eat Toasties Too so scrumptiously attests. When he is not hard at work with his wife Cath at Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio in Melbourne’s Chapel Street, or appearing on MasterChef, Darren can often be found at home in the kitchen whipping up a gastronomic treat from the simplest of meals, the not-always-so-humble toastie.
