Aussie chefs caught in dual nationality scandal could face deportation

The dual nationality scandal was uncovered after a year-long investigation, which detailed the Bronte resident’s Irish ancestry. Although born and raised in Ireland, not leaving for Australia until he was in his late twenties, Fassinidge says he was dumbfounded to find out he was in fact Irish.

Well-known Aussie chef Colin Fassnidge shocked to discover he was Irish.

“When I heard the news I had to have two pints of Gat and a bottle of Bulmers just to calm me nerves, to be sure,” Fassnidge said.

The news has rocked the culinary world, with many chefs now wondering whether they might be in the firing line. Rockpool’s Neil Perry has called for clarity over the rules which don’t allow chefs to hold dual nationality and work in nice restaurants.

Fassnidge was born and raised in Ireland but has no memory of it.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is said to be devastated, as he along with many Liberal Party big hitters, was a regular at trendy bistro 4Fourteen. The Turnbull Government’s balance of power is hanging in the balance, as the faceless men and one woman face the strong possibility they may have nowhere to conduct their backroom deals.

The Federal Government is now looking at changes to the current legislation to allow top chefs to continue to work here even if they have foreign sounding names.
