After a 3-year hiatus, Melbourne’s hottest chefs are banding together to support children in need with the reimagined Eat Street – Variety of Chefs on Tuesday 30 May 2023 at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.
Hosted by Masterchef’s Sarah Todd, this year’s event will feature a 5-course extravaganza of mouth-watering dishes from three of Melbourne’s most renowned chefs including Scott Pickett (Estelle), Adam D’Sylva (Lollo) and Shane Delia (Maha) curated in partnership with Executive Chef, John Savage who is celebrating 20 years at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.
Paired with the finest local beer and wine providers, Eat Street not only provides a fun night out but is also raising much needed funds for the Bikes for Kids Program which is run by Variety – the Children’s Charity. In addition, all event staff involved on the night have generously volunteered their time.
“I have been involved with the Variety Bikes for Kids Program for a very long time, and truly love how I can make a difference to these children’s lives through my passion of cooking for people,” said Adam D’Sylva, former co-founder of Coda and Tonka, as well as Boca Gelato and Culinary Director of Lollo restaurant.
Scott Pickett is a renowned restaurateur whose career has seen him successfully operate multiple venues including Estelle, Matilda, Chancery Lane and Smith St Bistrot. Scott has had an affiliation with Eat Street for many years and counts himself privileged to be in the position to support Variety and those less fortunate. “Eat Street is always a fun event to be a part of with fellow Melbourne chefs. It’s going to be a great time for everyone involved and I’m proud to be asked back for another year,” he said. Pickett’s contribution will be the main course of Australian beef – one of his favourite ingredients to work with.
Shane Delia is an award winning chef, entrepreneur and director of the Delia Group. His restaurant portfolio includes flagship restaurant Maha, Maha East in Windsor, Cocktail bar Jayda and his newest venue Maha North in Collingwood. “Eat Street has always been special to me. Completing my apprenticeship at the Sofitel was a milestone in my career and participating in countless Eat Street events over the years has been an exceptional moment in my career,” he said.
