Engaging Keynote speakers

The Punk Princess of Pastry Anna Polyviou.

Anna Polyviou is a chef like no other. She thinks beyond the boundaries and cooks to inspire, amaze and delight. As a creative director she creates mind-blowing food experiences and takes fans on the best kind of magical journey – one you can eat!

She’s the powerhouse of pastry, but Anna is also an author, presenter, DJ and creative director of her namesake company. She’s passionate about empowering people to have fun with food and gets the biggest kick out of making people smile and seeing their jaws drop. Her big personality and magnetic energy make her a hit with any audience. She’s bold, bright and exceeds expectations, just like her hair.

Ever the overachiever, Anna went into pastry because she found savoury too easy.

Above all, Anna is about people: encouraging them to give things a go, nurturing their talent and giving them something sweet to talk about!

Don’t miss out on the fantastic opportunity to hear and learn from one of the most influential chefs in Australasia right now, Anna Polyviou.

This year Anna will be presenting at Hospo Hui 22 as Keynote speaker discussing her journey, brand and more. You will also be able to catch her in the Moffat demo kitchen and creating the final course at this years FEAST dinner.
