Over the years, plenty of people have asked us when Scarf Dinners will head west!

Well, we’re pretty darn excited to announce we are running two Scarf ‘Pop Up’ Dinners at the renowned Copper Pot Seddon. These dinners will run on Monday 11 and Monday 18 September and seats are extremely limited. Ashley Davis and the Copper Pot Seddon kitchen team will be doing the cooking (two course set menu, $45 per head) and recent graduates of our 3-day ‘Tasting Plate’ hospitality short course will be working the front of house with support from Scarf mentors*. Dishes include ‘Beef cheek, celeriac, red wine, citrus, broad beans tips’, ‘Smoked rainbow trout, root vegetable chowder, peas’ and ‘Warm salad of spring asparagus, faro, curd, olive, oregano.’ Yep, our mouths are watering too!

If you’d like to join us for one of these very special dinners, please email bookings@scarfcommunity.org with the following details and we’ll give you a call to get you booked in!

*Scarf trainees are young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds facing barriers to work. They are paid the Restaurant Industry Award wage for their work during Scarf Dinners. Scarf mentors are hospitality professionals who volunteer their time so that trainees can build skills and confidence while gaining supported, paid work experience (which can be key to finding long-term employment).

Dine at Scarf and help get young people into jobs.
