Indulge in an afternoon of sweet treats and bubbles at this Afternoon Tea with Shannon Bennett. Host and GT Editor Kylie Oliver will be interviewing Shannon on life as one of Australia’s top chefs.

Trained by some of the world’s best chefs including Marco Pierre White and Alain Ducasse, Shannon Bennett is one of the pre-eminent chefs in Australia. He opened his flagship restaurant, Vue de monde, at the tender age of 24, then soon after he won Australian Gourmet Traveller’s inaugural ‘Best New Talent’ title. More ventures followed, including cafes, bistros, and most recently, Melbourne CBD’s first seafood dedicated restaurant, Iki-Jime, the evolution of the former Bistro Vue.

Shannon is a regular on Masterchef, and a prolific writer, having penned numerous cookbooks and travel guides. His latest project, Burnham Beeches, is an historic country mansion in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, which he is restoring into a luxury retreat to accompany the existing Burnham Bakery and Piggery Cafe.
