Do More Than Dine


Scarf, the non-profit empowering young hospitality professionals from diverse backgrounds, has announced their ‘Do More Than Dine’ fundraising gala dinner set to take place on Thursday, April 18.

Co-hosted by food writer Dani Valent and esteemed chef, author, and social entrepreneur Hamed Allahyari, this event will offer a five-course culinary journey with guest chefs such as Gourmet Traveller Chef of the Year Thi Le, Pipi’s Kiosk’s Jordan Clay, and Lilac Wine’s Kyle Nicol.

Guests can expect betel leaf with fragrant chicken and cashews, Gỏi Cuốn (fresh rice paper rolls) with pork and herbs, and fried tempeh Miang Kham with coconut relish from Le. Meanwhile, Clay will serve his innovative seafood dishes in the first course, and Nicol will showcase his French bistro-inspired fare. Elsewhere, Tarts Anon and Maker & Monger will conclude the final two courses.

In addition, Scarf’s graduates will serve and share their stories about the program’s impact. The evening will culminate in a ‘Money Can’t Buy’ auction led by Matt Preston and Gowan Stubbings, featuring unique experiences like progressive dining and rare vintage wines. An exclusive auction highlight is an ‘investment barrel’ of single-malt whisky donated by Wayne Bourke. The winner will craft their whisky at Bathtub Gin Co, resulting in 150 personalised bottles.

Only 90 seats are available, so secure your tickets to savour culinary delights while supporting Scarf’s culinary excellence and social impact mission.
