It is no suprise that Ben Shewry was named 'Best New Talent' by Australian Gourmet Traveller in 2008. The young executive chef of Attica has been a tireless student and innovator since he first stepped into the restaurant kitchen.
"My MasterClass is all about how I developed a connection to the land through my relationship with my wonderful parents and as I grew up on a dry stock farm in Awakino. This now extends to my relationship with my son Kobe. If I can pass on some of this to you then I will be happy because the only thing that matters to me is the process of cooking – it is my passion and my life." - Ben Shewry
Attica has once again been placed in the world's 100 best restaurants, being voted 63 at the recent San Pellegrino awards ceremony.
Ben is proudly supported by Lavender's Green and his session will be moderated by Martin Bosley, Owner of Martin Bosley's Restaurant in Wellington.
