ABOUT SONIA ANTHONY
After working in kitchens around the world, Sonia returned to Bendigo in 2012 with husband Nick to open hatted restaurant Masons of Bendigo. Their ethos of supporting and sourcing all of the very best of Central Victorian produce shows throughout their food menu as well as their Victorian-only wine list. Sonia's passion and commitment of supporting local has been unwavering with her involvement over the past 6 years in Food Fossickers Inc. (A Central Victorian Food Trade Network), The Bendigo Community Farmers Market and the many collaborations and educational opportunities she presents both in the restaurant and at her Central Victorian producers' farm gates. She recently published her first book, A Sense of Place which translates those stories and highlights the resilience and passion it takes to grow the food we are able to enjoy.
“There really is something magical about knowing who has grown your food; understanding how it's been grown; and the dedication, commitment and effort taken in order for us to enjoy cooking and sharing it with our guests, family and friends.”
