Shane Delia’s Homage to Melbourne’s Culinary Pioneers
On Friday 8th March 2019 SMCT were honoured to partner with Shane Delia to host a Melbourne Food and Wine event that welcomed over 90 members of the community to Melbourne General Cemetery for a celebration of Melbourne’s culinary past.
Community members began the event at Melbourne General Cemetery’s historical Gatehouse for canapes before embarking on a fascinating tour of some of Melbourne’s most notable foodies. Following the tour, guests were then invited to join in an amazing Mediterranean feast curated by our ambassador and star chef, Shane Delia, showcasing the importance of food in bringing people together.
Food in bringing people together is dear to our organisation. Everyday we see people say farewell to a loved one and connect over shared plates. Food is nurturing, enjoyable and necessary to sustain lives. We take the promise of looking after the loved ones of our community very seriously and feel privileged to host events that bring people together over good food, wine and heartfelt conversations.
