Winter Scarf Dinners will run from every Tuesday from 9 July – 27 August at Uncle, 1/15 Collins St, Melbourne. A two-course set menu of modern Vietnamese food will be served for $45 per head. Scarf trainees and mentors will look after the front of house and the Uncle chefs will do the cooking. There are vegetarian options available in each course, and specific dietary requirements can be catered for – simply note these when you make your booking.
Eight new Scarf trainees will engage in weekly training sessions throughout the 10-week Winter Scarf program, spanning formal service, wine, cocktails, beer, coffee, resume-writing and more. Then, during Tuesday night Scarf Dinners, the trainees will gain paid work experience as they learn the ins and outs of front of house service whilst supported by mentors (hospitality professionals). Scarf programs allow trainees to build their knowledge, skills, confidence and networks, whilst training and working in some of Melbourne’s best venues.
As always, we’ll offer a fabulous drinks list thanks to generous support from Punt Road Wines, Stomping Ground Brewing Co, STARWARD Whisky, Four Pillars Gin, Casa Mariol Vermut Negre, Daylesford & Hepburn Mineral Springs Co, Campari Australia, Napoleone, Five Senses Coffee and Larsen & Thompson tea. Please note Scarf Dinners are not BYO.
Previous Scarf seasons have been held at Higher Ground Melbourne, Bhang, Stomping Ground Beer Hall, Auction Rooms, The Grace Darling, The Lincoln, The Robert Burns Hotel, Rupert on Rupert, Mesa Verde and Top Paddock.
