With a career spanning over 25 years in the hospitality industry and with a passion for a sustainable way of living, it goes without saying that cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients is an integral part not only of the Vue Group restaurants but also in Shannon Bennett's family's everyday life. As we become more aware of what lasting impacts we leave for future generations, Shannon has curated a selection of brands and products that are doing their bit of the environment without taking the fun and enjoyment out of your day-to-day life.
Extravagance, indulgence, and fun can be done without costing the earth (literally).
EGLU Hutch - Sourcing organic and truly free-range eggs for all of our venues is incredibly important to everyone at Vue, and at home, treating his family's pet chooks with the same love is equally important. Keeping his Byron-bred chooks safe, happy and comfortable without the risk of mites (or foxes), Shannon is a huge rap for the Eglu hutch by Omlet and is equally suited to a town or country back yard!
Code38 Wine Knife - Used by our Sommelier team at Vue de monde, the Code38 Wine Knife is unlike any waiter's friend you've ever used. Incorporating the functionality and durability of state-of-the-art, stainless steel industrial design, together with a sublime, sophisticated style that has seduced sommeliers the world over. Nothing else performs or lasts like it.
Coolest Esky - The most successful crowdfunding campaign ever, the coolest esky embraces and encourages a life spent outdoors with family and friends. This is not your average esky - designed to enhance every outdoor experience, with everything from a built-in blender to a solar-powered phone charging attachment.
Tenkara Fly Rods - Living around the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, there's an incredible opportunity for fishing responsibly and having a brilliant day outside, enjoying some of nature's best offerings. One of Shannon's favourite hobbies since moving to Byron Bay, the beautifully made fly rods by Tenkara are a game-changer.
