Meet Emma

Emma’s culinary journey began at the side of her mother, Sue Jenkins, owner of Accoutrement, Accoutrement Cooking School and Accoutrement Tours. Sue, a renowned kitchenware retailer and owner of Sydney’s original cooking school exposed Emma to a multitude of culinary luminaries who frequented their establishment.

The likes of Stephanie Alexander, Maggie Beer, Neil Perry, Matt Moran, Belinda Jefferies, Damien Pignolet, and many many others graced their kitchen, igniting Emma’s passion for food.

After a year in London, travelling through Europe and immersing herself in diverse culinary and cultural experiences, Emma’s love for travel became her next pursuit. Over the years, she continued to work alongside her mother, absorbing knowledge and honing her skills. When the opportunity arose, the tour component of the family business became Emma’s project.

With her dual passions for food and travel, Emma has explored the corners of Europe, Asia, and regional Australia, enriching her culinary repertoire and expanding her cultural understanding. Emma continues to grow Accoutrement Tours, blending her expertise with her mother’s legacy to inspire and educate a new generation of food enthusiasts.
