Sean Connolly 

One of Australia and New Zealand’s most respected and instantly recognised chefs, Sean Connolly’s wealth of experience spans the globe.

Since making the move to Sydney from his native England in 1988, Sean’s star has continued to rise. Starting with his position as executive chef at Astral restaurant in Sydney’s Star Casino, Sean keeps notching up formidable achievements.

In 2009, Sean hosted a 13 part SBS television series called My Family Feast. This was a celebration of Australia’s love affair with multicultural dining and no-fuss, family oriented entertaining. The series won an award for Best TV Show at the 2010 Australian Food Media Awards, plus the Best TV Series About Food and Wine Culture award at the World TV Food & Wine Festival, held in Paris. Sean authored a companion cookbook to the series, also called My Family Feast, which trumped international stars like Nigella Lawson to win Best Celebrity Chef Cook Book In The World at the 2011 Paris Book Fair.

In 2012, Sean opened The Morrison, a sophisticated New York-style restaurant and oyster bar in the heart of the Sydney CBD. In 2015 Sean expanded his business interests into South Australia, opening the aptly named Sean’s Kitchen in the Adelaide casino. His latest venture, The Balcony in Byron Bay, opened it’s doors early in 2016 and has already proven to be a significant player, impressing both discerning local diners and Byron Bay’s constant stream of domestic and international visitors.
