He moved to Sydney at the age of eight, with his mother and sister, where he went to school and then later to catering college.
After several years cooking in Australia, Scully moved to London and started working at Ottolenghi Upper Street in 2005. He moved to the NOPI as head chef, when the restaurant opened in 2011. Scully's distinct culinary baggage - the Malaysian flavours of his childhood, his training in the European tradition, his insatiable appetite for Asian ingredients - has been the creative force behind much of what is on the NOPI menu.
