Autumn Scarf Dinners will be announced in February 2018. Sign up here to get all the details on future Scarf Dinners and special events.
Spring Scarf Dinners ran on Tuesday nights at Auction Rooms, North Melbourne between 26 September – 21 November 2017. The Auction Rooms chefs did the cooking; they’d created a delicious two course set menu (entree + main with choice, $45 per person). Dishes include ‘Crab and sweetcorn risotto’, ‘Fried haloumi, peach, asparagus, mint’ and ‘Pressed lamb shoulder, tomato, basil, fiore di latte’.
Scarf trainees are young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who face barriers to work. During the Spring Scarf season, they engaged in a bunch of training sessions which spanned formal service, wine, cocktails, beer, coffee and more. Then, during Tuesday night Scarf Dinners, the trainees learned the ins and outs of front of house service, whilst being supported by their mentors, who came from fantastic venues like Cumulus Up, Garden State Hotel, O.MY and Market Lane. Scarf programs offer a chance for trainees to build their knowledge, skills, confidence and networks, whilst engaging in paid work experience during Scarf Dinners.
As always, we offered a fabulous drinks list thanks to generous support from Punt Road Wines, Little Creatures, The West Winds Gin, STARWARD Whisky, Casa Mariol Vermut Negre, Daylesford & Hepburn Mineral Springs Co, Vertue of the Coffee Drink and Larsen & Thompson tea. Please note Scarf Dinners are not BYO.
Previous Scarf seasons have been held at The Grace Darling, The Lincoln, The Robert Burns Hotel, Higher Ground Melbourne, Rupert on Rupert, Mesa Verde, Top Paddock and Markov.
