Join Matt Wilkinson and Sharlee Gibb for a masterclass with Olsson's Salts.
Originally hailing from Yorkshire in northern England, Matt Wilkinson is a chef, author and passionate advocate for ethical farming. He loves nothing more than getting his hands dirty gardening, camping and fishing and has never been one to say no to a martini. Matt is the owner of The Pie Shop in Melbourne’s East Brunswick and is the author of three cookbooks Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables, Mr Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads and Mr & Mrs Wilkinsons How it is at Home. Currently, he is running a pop-up of his much-loved Pope Joan cafe on the forecourt of the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne's CBD.
Sharlee Gibb grew up on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. At 18, she stumbled into the world of food and travelled the world working in hospitality. A keen cook, Sharlee trained under Darina Allen at her famed Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland before forging a career off the pans as an event manager and curator. A former Gastronomy Program Manager for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Sharlee now works as a creative director on food events and projects and she is the founder of Fully Booked Women - a community celebrating women in the food and drink industry. She published her first cookbook in October 2017 with husband Matt Wilkinson, Mr & Mrs Wilkinson's How it is at Home.
Wine/beer pairing included.
Please note, Olsson's Masterclasses are only accessible to those with a Festival Village pass. Each of masterclass sessions run for 40 minutes.
