Scarf Dinners are back! UPDATE: These events has been postponed due to COVID restrictions. We've attempted to contact all ticket holders via email, but if you haven't heard from us, maybe we have your email address wrong! Please reach out: [email protected]. You're welcome to keep your booking on file until we can reschedule, or request a refund. . We're beyond excited to report that Scarf Dinners are back after 18 months! As part of our Tasting Plate for Women program, we're running two very special Scarf Dinners on 25 May and 8 June. The front-of-house, like all Scarf Dinners and events, will be staffed by Scarf trainees and mentors. The trainees have recently graduated from a three-day Tasting Plate short course with Scarf, thanks to support from Melbourne Women's Fund. . Scarf trainees are paid award wages for their work, and for most of the Tasting Plate graduates, this will be their first taste of paid employment in Australia. . We're working in partnership with two of our favourite female-led outfits to bring these dinners to life. Thi Le and her team from Anchovy will be doing the cooking. If you're not familiar with Anchovy's food, take a look here. . . . . The event will be styled and set up by the team from Merchant Road Events, an amazing social enterprise who provide training and employment to young women from refugee backgrounds. . . . Information about the menu At these special Scarf Dinners, we'll be serving a four course set menu, designed and cooked by the Thi Le and the Anchovy team, who are renowned for their modern, Southeast Asian cuisine. As these are large events (with 80 guests in attendance), there are limitations on which dietary requirements* can be catered for. Please take note of the following before making your booking: the menu will cater for gluten-free guests/guests with coeliac disease/those who are pregnant (please specify when booking) the menu can be adapted to suit guests who are vegetarian (as long as OK with fish sauce) or pescatarian (please specify when booking) apologies, but the menu will not be able to cater for: no onion, no garlic, no sugars, no chilli, no fish sauce, no sesame * Please keep in mind that Scarf's next season of dinners, Winter Scarf '21, will begin on Wednesday 23 June. This season of Scarf Dinners will run for eight Wednesdays at Stomping Ground Beer Hall in Collingwood.
