Great Chefs Events

William Angliss Institute's Great Chefs series 2017!

Running for over 20 years, the Great Chefs program provides our cookery and hospitality students with the opportunity to work alongside some of Australia's most recognised chefs. It also provides the food lovers of Melbourne the chance to experience exclusive menus from well-known chefs at prices between $50-80 (including matched wines) while supporting the next generation of chefs and hospitality leaders.

Hear from the Great Chef on the night, enjoy the opportunity to taste their specially designed menu and learn about the inspiration behind their creations!

All Great Chef lunches begin at 12 midday, and dinners begin at 7.00pm.

2017 Great Chefs Program

Great Chefs lunches are $50 for three courses and matching wine unless otherwise indicated, and Great Chefs dinners are $80 for four courses and matching wine unless otherwise indicated.
