Winter Scarf Dinners will run on Tuesday nights at The Grace Darling, 114 Smith St, Collingwood, from 27 June – 15 August. The Grace Darling have created a super delicious two course set menu (entree + main with choice, $45 per person). The Grace Darling kitchen has a strong focus on sustainable and local produce, and delivers a modern yet unpretentious interpretation of classic pub fare. Maybe you’ll start with Green apple & gin cured ocean trout with cucumber salsa and Nori crisp for entree, followed by Braised beef cheek, parsnip puree, Brussels sprouts and jus for main course. There are tasty vegetarian options in each course, and we can also cater for vegans – just advise of any dietary requirements upon booking.
Scarf has recruited a new group of front of house trainees who are keen to bust into hospitality jobs. Scarf trainees are young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who face barriers to work. During the Autumn Scarf season, they will engage in a bunch of training sessions which span formal service, wine, cocktails, beer, coffee and more. Then, during Tuesday night Scarf Dinners, the trainees will learn the ins and outs of front of house service, whilst being supported by their mentors, who come from fantastic venues like Gerald’s Bar, Garden State Hotel 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’ll offer a fabulous drinks list thanks to generous support from red + white and Mezzanine Wine, 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.
Recent Scarf seasons have been held at The Lincoln, The Robert Burns Hotel, Higher Ground Melbourne, Rupert on Rupert, The Empress Hotel, Green Park, Mesa Verde, Top Paddock and Markov.
