Polyviou turned her creative eye to Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s sweetest experiences, becoming known for her renowned high tea, decadent dessert station at Café Mix, luscious treats at Lobby Lounge and the Horizon Club, along with inventive in-room dining and banquet menus.

In May 2017, Polyviou was a guest judge on MasterChefAustralia and challenged contestants to create her Firecracker dessert, a cartoon-themed creation with a sparkler in the tail, delivering her signature theatrics.

The award-winning chef has also created a Dessert Degustation series together with renowned sweets creators in the hotel’s pasty kitchen, as well as the annual Christmas Spectacular, which has become a destination on Sydney’s festive calendar.

In 2016, Polyviou took home the coveted “Pastry Chef of the Year” at the prestigious Gault&Millau Awards, hot on the heels of her “Hotel Chef” win at the 2016 HM Awards.
