Eat out and give disadvantaged youth the chance to hone hospitality skills
Social enterprise Scarf have rebooted their yearly Scarf Dinners and this year Rupert on Rupert is hosting. The initiative offers front-of-house training, mentorship and employment to eight young people with refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds.
The dinner series has been a success since it started several years ago. Each year, trainee staff learn valuable skills to take them to the workforce and more than two-thirds of the initiative's graduates has ended up at restaurants, bars and cafés including The Sofitel, Shebeen , Bibendum Wine and Top Paddock.
Visitors will be served a two-course dinner by Rupert on Rupert chef Megan Morgan with dishes including Golden Hock Balls with smoked hams, slow-braised lamb shoulder in masterstock. For dessert, you're looking at the moreish chocolate Kingston Tart with fior di latte vanilla gelato from Pidapipo. Bookings are essential through the Scarf Community website.
