BIOGRAPHY

Dave Pynt is the highest-ranking Australian chef in the world. Burnt Ends, his “shitty little barbecue restaurant” in Singapore, clocked in at no.59 on the extended version of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list — a high for any chef. When quizzed about his reaction to the news, he responded with the following: “I haven’t looked at the entire list to find out, but that’s good to know.” Burnt Ends is unapologetically Burnt Ends, and Pynt tends to steer clear of the odd unhappy customer and let his front of house team take care them like the professionals they are. “My tolerance level for that kind of thing is very low,” he says. “Everyone is entitled to what they see as value for money and what we should deliver [in relation to] what we charge and the accolades we’ve won. But in my opinion, we do what we do. Take it or leave it — you don’t have to be here.”

INSPIRATION

Pynt is well aware of the toll a career in hospitality can take on workers and is vigilant when it comes to the wellbeing of his team. “We work really insane hours; the pressure is high,” says the chef. “But if someone has an issue in our kitchen and we see them having a bad day, we talk about it. We’ve had issues in the past and we are proactive and aware. We take it really f**cking seriously. We spend more time with these people than our families. If we can’t look after them, how are we meant to take care of our own families or our guests?”
