Running for over 23 years, the Great Chefs program provides our cookery and hospitality students with the opportunity to work alongside some of Australia's most recognised chefs.

Taste our delicious food and see why we are the ringleaders in hospitality and professionalism. Sit back and enjoy the atmosphere of the event as our cookery and hospitality graduates greet and serve you with a huge smile and professionalism.

It also provides the food lovers of Melbourne the chance to experience exclusive menus from well-known chefs at prices between $55-85 (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!

Our Great Chefs program has now concluded for 2018.
