We love the Scarf dinners. This season @ Higher Ground offered a delicious choice of which I had the Kingfish Ceviche (yummy) & slow braised beef 🥩 - super yummy. I also indulged in one of the martini specials which was super delicious. The service our waiter Sharrif provided was very good for a Scarf trainee 👍🏼 It’s nice to see how well the trainees are progressing through the Scarf program to be able to attend these events to help them with their training.

Autumn Scarf Dinners at The Rochey

Autumn Scarf Dinners will run at The Rochey, 202 Johnston St, Fitzroy on Tuesday Nights from 26 March - 21 May. A $45 two course set menu of modern Southern Indian cuisine will be cooked by The Rochey chefs, led by Executive Chef Mischa Tropp. You’ll need to provide your credit card details to secure your booking with full pre-payment of $45 per person. As per Scarf's booking policy, your prepaid “tickets” to this Scarf Dinner are non-refundable. This policy was put in place to protect us from last minute cancellations which compromise Scarf's viability as a sustainable social enterprise. Further details can be found on the Scarf FAQ page. Scarf is a social enterprise that gets young people into jobs while adding flavour and heart to the hospitality industry. We partner with great Melbourne restaurants to run awesome, hands-on hospitality training, mentoring and paid work experience programs. Scarf trainees are resilient young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who have faced barriers to employment. Participating in Scarf builds knowledge, skills, networks, and confidence. During weekly Scarf Dinners, volunteer mentors work closely with trainees, supporting them to run the front of house. The chefs from our seasonal partner restaurant do the cooking. Scarf volunteer mentors are front of house professionals who bring experience, passion and patience, allowing Scarf trainees to grow their skills, knowledge, confidence and connections. We offer a fabulous drinks list thanks to generous sponsors including Punt Road Wines and Stomping Ground Brewing Co. Please note Scarf Dinners are not BYO. More information can be found at www.scarfcommunity.org.
