Planners looking for something a bit different for special events or an off-site dinner are often stuck sifting through restaurant venues trying to find the perfect one.
If your group is visiting Melbourne, partnering with Melbourne Food Experiences might be the ideal solution.
They work with celebrated, award-winning chefs, producers, sommeliers and bartenders across the city and their long-term relationships allow them to provide exclusive access to hospitality venues, full-service convenience in event organisation and unrivalled food knowledge.
Award-winning venues for the hosted dining events include restaurants such as Annam, Bar Saracen, Cumulus Inc, and Arc One Gallery, Mjolner, Pastuso, Pure South Dining, San Telmo and Supernormal. Working closely with these chefs, they ensure each event is tailored to the client’s needs, as well as creating a list of perfectly matched cocktails and wine.
The host for each dining event is also carefully chosen with access to some of Melbourne’s most celebrated and experienced food writers, sommeliers, cocktail-makers and hospitality business owners. These include Wendy Hargreaves, Dani Valent, Max Allen, Richard Cornish, Sebastian Raeburn and Cameron Smith.
For example, a recent hosted dining experience held for a client at Pure South Dining saw food expert Wendy Hargreaves as MC. Guests enjoyed Pure South’s Yarra River-front location with sweeping views of the city skyline and iconic landmarks including Flinders St Station. Executive chef David Hall and his team work directly with exceptional farmers, fishermen and artisan producers in Tasmania, Flinders Island and King Island. They also bring a strong approach of provenance, ethical farming and sustainably sourced to their seasonal menus.
Host Wendy Hargreaves, as founder of the Sunday Herald Sun's first food section and Melbourne's most independent food/fun magazine fiveofthebest.com was able to talk all things food and wine with guests as they enjoyed a three-course menu.
