WE ALL HAVE A STORY.
Sometimes it’s not enough to ride the vortex of convention. Sometimes it’s too simple to be
good at one thing for the rest of your life. Sometimes it’s not possible to ignore your heart’s
Bauhaus is the story of a man who risked everything to follow his food passion. It’s the story of
a beautiful, connected and generous soul who I love and have the pleasure to work with.
May I introduce to you Chris Thomas and the Bauhaus.
A well traveled investment banker with a saturated cultural appreciation. Chris’s culinary
passions began as a young boy baking cakes in his Melbourne family home. Cooking for his
family and friends in between banking deals no longer satisfied his culinary drive. Chris decided
to leave the big end of town. Taking up residence in Sydney, he now has a more humble life,
and a very modest approach to his amazingly successful career. On Sydney’s most expressive
foodie strip of Enmore, he offers his guests a personalised, homely approach to hospitality with
a twist of banking wit. Always a smile, and a big lot of love for his patrons. Chris is often
seen telling stories and laughing with his customers until closing time. When you love what you
do, you won’t work a day in your life. This is Chris’s approach.
Over the last 20 years Chris’s career took him to London, New York and Tokyo. Regularly
crossing continents and experiencing global food at it’s best. The food he embraces at Bauhaus
is a culmination of his successful career, his life travels, his extraordinary experiences, and his soul
connection with food. The delights we hope you enjoy tonight are a departmentalised fusion of
Chris’s life on both East and West continents. The world is surprisingly small. His philosophy
of food is one of cultural integration and appreciation.
We hope you enjoy your experience at Bauhaus. We aim to provide the best and freshest
ingredients, seasonally oriented and locally sourced. From paddock to plate in an original and
uniquely presented manner. It’s Chris’s story on a plate. All handmade in haus, our East West
Eats share our love of food to nourish the body, feed the soul, and excite the senses.
I’m lucky to call this gorgeous “foodie banker” my man. It’s my pleasure to write these words
about him and share in the story of this beautiful little space we call Bauhaus.
My name is Claire. I am a designer. A singer, and a food lover. I am blessed to be his partner.
This is my story about Christopher and the Bauhaus.
