Michael Yeowart & Jake Pregnell

Allow me to introduce you to the dynamic duo behind Luvarlee.

Michael Yeowart, affectionately known as Mikey, and Jake Pregnell, the mastermind behind the legendary bug roll. Their journey as friends began 16 years ago, united by a mutual love for the culinary world.

Mikey began his Chef journey at the River House on the Noosa River at 15 years of age. He completed his apprenticeship by 18 and the kitchen has been his second home ever since. Mikey has worked in many countries and immersed himself in different cultures to learn diverse cooking techniques.

Jake developed his cheffing skills, also at 15 years, at the prestigious Spirit House in Yandina, before venturing into the bustling foody scene in Melbourne. He later played a pivotal role in the successful launch of Rick Shores in Burleigh Heads as head chef and went onto to run kitchens at Honto and Little Valley in Brisbane. 

Mikey returned to Australia in 2020 after spending time in Bali as a restaurant consultant and he noticed the massive growth in home delivered food and ready made meal companies. This way of eating was becoming hugely popular with almost everyone opting for the easy option in the kitchen. One thing these companies were lacking was the quality in produce and focus on fueling the body with nutrient dense foods. Mikey thought “Why sacrifice quality for ease when you can have both?” And this is where the idea for Luvarlee was born.

The boys absolutely loves to cook and create. It is their passion to provide healthy, yet tasty food for family and friends and since Mikey founded Luvarlee he can now share this passion with everyone!
