MCEC helps Starlight Five Chefs Dinner bring back the joy of childhood

It was all about bringing the joy of childhood back to seriously ill children and their families at 2017 Melbourne’s Starlight Five Chefs Dinner, proudly sponsored and hosted by the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre for the sixth consecutive year. 

Almost 500 guests enjoyed spectacular five-course degustation delivered by some of Melbourne’s best chefs, raising enough funds to deliver Starlight Children’s Foundation in-hospital programs for nearly five months. 

Featured chefs included Alla Wolf-Tasker AM (Lake House Daylesford), Justin James (Vue de monde), Guy Grossi (Grossi Florentino and proud Starlight ambassador), Benjamin Cooper (Chin Chin), and Andrew McConnell (Cutler & Co).

MCEC’s Executive Chef, Peter Haycroft was also on hand to create a delicious array of canapés, and said the evening was always an incredibly special event for him and his own team of chefs.
