Over here in the West, we’ve been pretty fortunate. Our local lockdown hero Mark McGowan has kept us safe and sound, tucked up in our little West Coast bubble. And for most of us, the COVID lockdown is a distant memory, with all our fave bars, restaurants, and events pretty much in full swing again.
Over in Melbourne, though, our Victorian friends have been doing it tough. They’ve really taken one for the team, shutting up shop and putting their lives on hold while most of Australia returns to normal. We reckon they’re getting pretty tired of watching on the sidelines and could do with a little love. And what better way to show your love than through an exceptional four-course degustation, delivered straight to their door.
As a way of saying thanks, we’ll be hosting an unmissable Isolation Degustation on Saturday 17 October for our pals over East.
Curated and hosted by MasterChef hall-of-famer Danielle Dixon, this four-course feast (check out the full menu here) will be delivered to your Melburnian mate’s door with everything they need for a fine-dining experience at home. Plus, as Australia’s largest virtual degustation ever, they’ll also be able to share the unique experience with all the friends, family and co-workers they’ve been missing.
Aside from just getting to chow down on a delicious meal, they’ll also be in for an exclusive video stream of live entertainment and music and the chefs who thoughtfully crafted each meal will jump in from time to time to provide a bit of background on the exceptional local produce that has gone into creating the epic meal.
To bring this drool-worthy dining experience to life, we’ve partnered with some of the best including Gathar, the team who will deliver the deliciousness to your door; Fromager d’Affinois cheeses and Australian Avocados for the freshest and tastiest produce; and Fed Square for some lively, laugh-out-loud entertainment throughout the night.
As well, for Australia’s first carbon-neutral accredited telco Belong, this dinner is a symbolic reminder that we have the power to do better together, and as we get back to our lives we should do so more consciously.
If you’ve got a special someone, family, or friends struggling over in Melbourne, go ahead and treat them to our Isolation Degustation. It will be an awesome opportunity for them to share in a special meal and think about all the good post-lockdown times ahead.
Grab tickets here before they sell out.
