Head Chef

Shannon Debreceny

Originally from Port Macquarie, Shannon has been cooking for over 22 years and still genuinely loves food. Unlike a lot of chefs, he enjoys cooking at home - to the delight of his partner, family, and friends. After five years at LP's Quality Meats, he joins Victor Churchill for the exceptional quality of produce. When the sun is shining and he's not at the helm of the Woollahra kitchen, he's jumping in the ocean.
