MEET KAITLYN MAYFIELD
She’s the Front of House Assistant Manager and right hand support for David Barber. After recently returning from her wedding in Canada, we sat down with Kaitlyn to find out more about her role and what she gets up to when she isn’t delivering exceptional service.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE ROLE?
I started in July but I’ve been working in hospitality for ten years. I’m responsible for running functions, training staff and ensuring standards are upheld.
WHAT DO YOU MOST ENJOY ABOUT WORKING FOR WINE & DINE’M?
I’m always doing something different and I love my colleagues and the support they give.
I love cheese but if you add maple bacon to anything it’s always a winner. I was born in Toronto so I was raised on Maple Syrup.
WHAT FOOD OR MENU HAS MOST IMPRESSED YOU AT WINE & DINE’M?
The paella stations – they look and taste amazing!
Montieth Crushed Apple Cider.
FAVOURITE PLACE TO GO OUT WITH FRIENDS?
Definitely going to the beach. There are so many beaches so close to Brisbane, but my favourite swimming location would have to be Tallebudgera Creek. It is a perfect day trip destination.
Navala Churrascaria at Riverside because you get to try all the different varieties of meats in one awesome location. But I’m not fussy, anywhere that serves coffee is a must!
BEST EVENT YOU’VE ATTENDED AND WHY?
My wedding! We had a small wedding 45 minutes from Toronto on a beautiful lake. It was everything we hoped for, picturesque, fun and relaxed. It was so lovely to celebrate with family and friends, many of whom we hadn’t seen for over two years. My husband is Australian so it was a great excuse for him to get to know everyone and immerse himself in all things Canadian!
IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Ryan Reynolds – Canadian & hilarious.
