The much-anticipated William Angliss Institute Open Day returns to the Melbourne CBD campus on Saturday 13 August 10am – 3pm headlined by Angliss alumni, Shannon

Prospective students will experience immersive masterclasses, industry panel discussions,
demonstrations, alumni food trucks and hear from a special keynote speaker.

MasterChef judge and mentor, author, restaurateur and former creative director of Vue
Group, Shannon Bennett undertook a Commercial Cookery apprenticeship at Angliss in 1991, propelling him into his highly regarded career in the Australian food and restaurant scene.

Bennett will be returning to campus this August to deliver a keynote speech, giving attendees an insight into his time as an Angliss student, his outstanding career journey and opportunities for future students in the industry.

“Returning to William Angliss Institute will be a trip down memory lane and a great
opportunity to connect with the next generation looking to start their career”, said Bennett.

“I have fond memories of being a student here and hope by sharing my experience I can
demonstrate the different possibilities and career pathways within the industry.

“Now more than ever the industry needs skilled workers and the quality of training that
Angliss provides, injected back into the workforce, will keep our industry thriving.”

Alumni will also feature in food masterclasses, demonstrations and running food trucks on
the day. Kitty Budiharjo from Kitty Bakes (and ex-Vue de monde pastry chef) will be running a Korean bento cakes masterclass and Ashleigh Price from Koko Black will be hosting a chocolate moulding demonstration. Alumni will also share their experiences and career progression at industry panels for tourism, events and hotel management across the day.

Other demonstrations on the day include; Brunswick Aces’ non-alcoholic cocktail making, The Fermentary‘s veggie fermentation, Sourdough baking, Food Science’s fudge making, gelato making, barista coffee making, cabin crew procedures, event table styling, indigenous culinary garden tours, cake decorating and more.

The Angliss Restaurant will again host a food & wine (and alcohol-free wine) matching
experience that is a feast for the senses. Prospective students can also attend several information sessions on all the vocational and higher education programs, including postgraduate details.

For those considering a career in the experience industry, William Angliss Institute’s Open Day 2022 is an event not to be missed.
