Shannon Martinez / Melbourne Australia
SHANNON MARTINEZ has cooked for as long as she can remember. Her innovative, outside-the-square talents have contributed to kitchens across Melbourne for around 20 years. Shannon is an unlikely candidate to be the poster girl for plant-based dining, as she eats meat – but she is and she's unstoppable. Her unique, carnivorous perspective gives this mega talented chef the capability to create perfect tastes and textures, a world away from the stereotype of bland and predictable vegan food. Armed with a strong hospitality network and industry tenure, Shannon has taken on some of Australia's most meat-driven kitchens and veganised them, convincing her peers there's something to this plant-based 'trend'. Working at some of the nation’s largest food events, with some of Australia's greatest chefs, Shannon's next stop is TV and with Wyse, possible world domination. Look out!
