Meet the Mr Perkins Team! Head Chef David Lee & Nutritionist Jess Rutledge

Head chef – David Lee

David Lee creates nutritious menus filled with big, bold flavours.

For Bondi bodies? It’s only natural…

Mr Perkins.

One of David’s happiest childhood memories is climbing the mango tree in his summer garden – and the sticky sweetness of his favourite fresh fruit.

Today, that love of real ingredients, combined with 16 years of hands-on chef experience brings market-fresh, seasonal produce to the table. Ingredients to nourish your body and big, bold flavours that makes you feel good.

Soups made with love – to warm the heart and the soul.

Speciality porridges designed to tantalise your taste buds.

David’s collaboration with nutrition expert Jess Rutledge offers a menu that merges nutritional needs with friendly, feel-good tastes – rich with savvy super foods and positively packed with cutting-edge culinary cleverness.

It’s home-cooked deliciousness to leave your tastebuds dancing – served up with crisp, clean style that deserves its place in Bondi’s evolving, foodie scene.

Lobster bisque? Chilled avocado soup? Or perhaps the signature in-house granola…

Enjoy in-house or take it home – Mr Perkins is food to suit your lifestyle.

Get more of what you deserve – served up with flavours you won’t forget.

At Mr Perkins, David believes in making great food that’s great for you.

He knows you wouldn’t want anything less.

Great nutrition and delicious flavours do go together.

Mr Perkins.

Jess Rutledge, from The Greenery Clinic, teamed up with Head Chef David Lee with one clear goal: to help create truly tasty, good-for-you food – the favourite flavour for today’s discerning diners.

Looking great and being healthy?

Food helps you make that happen.

And when it’s with flavours that are as fresh as they are intriguing, Jess knows the latest addition to the Bondi foodie scene will make its mark. Jess and the Mr Perkins team are proud to create a Wellness Range that aims to cleanse and revitalise.

The ultimate nutrition?

With Jess as part of the team behind the fun, friendly menu choices at Mr Perkins, it’s natural.

“We’ve been provided with some incredible fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds that not only taste great but fuel our bodies with nutrients that aid our bodies in functioning optimally,” Jess says. “Food in packets with numbers in the ingredients list belongs in a science lab – not in our bodies.”

Plant foods are superfoods.

Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and beans.

Wholesome wellness is easy with the uniquely-designed ‘cleanse packages’ that tantalise your tongue, while they rejuvenate your spirit.

Her favourite fruit? Crunchy, tangy green apples – a vibrant reminder of life’s simple pleasures.

And for the ultimate comfort food? Sweet potato – fried with onion and sprinkled with cinnamon.


You see, Jess knows rules are made to be broken.

And when it comes to brilliant health, Mr Perkins proves that things that are wonderfully nutritious can also be delightfully delicious.
