Peter has worked with Dilmah Tea in an ambassadorial role for many years, developing the concept of tea gastronomy. This involves hosting the annual worldwide Real High Tea Challenge, recipe development, and developing Dilmah t-Lounges across the globe.

Over the years of judging Dilmah’s Real High Tea Challenge, Peter has seen remarkable advances in the use and inclusion of tea in cuisine. He believes that tea gastronomy has turned a huge corner. As the use of tea in cooking matures and becomes more common, the tea doesn’t need to be noticed in the dish or drink, it’s become a key ingredient – just like many other herbs or spices.
