Shaun Quade. He's the pastry chef with stints at Urbane, Brisvegas, Biota in Bowral, and the Brix in Fitzroy under his belt, an ice-cream company in the works (Harvey Rabbit Ice Cream) and the ability to make sugar, pumpkin, and whey bend to his creative will – like a boss. The guy's got skills, and the fact that he's teaming up with what is possibly Melbourne's best café (the Duchess of Spotswood) to do a series of Monday night dessert degustations is something you should be excited about.
You're looking at four courses of creative confectionary with a selection of snacks and wines available on the side. Bookings are essential – and we reckon you should make one now. This is a run don't walk situation.
