Join us as the women of Massi and Mister Bianco create this special dinner for the Fully Booked Women community.

Guests will enjoy a five-course feast designed by sous chef Rachel Kellar and chef de partie Charlie Chou. Dishes will include Sher Wagyu tartare, as well as asparagus fritti with ricotta and prawn tortelloni in crustacean bisque. Jeni Kolkka of Curly Flat will match each course with her wines from the Macedon Ranges. Restaurant manager Jade Ryan, assistant manager Nicolette Fehr and function coordinator Vanessa Aliano will head up the front of house team.

Maria Canabal, who’s in Melbourne for GROW Assembly, will be our guest speaker. Maria is founder and president of Parabere Forum, an international organisation promoting women's voices through gastronomy. They host an annual conference, have developed an app featuring women-led restaurants around the world and work tirelessly to promote women through events and festivals.

Back for its third year in Melbourne, GROW Assembly is a day-long series of talks to inspire those working in hospitality. This year the focus is on Community, and we’ve taken that as the theme for our dinner also. Here at Fully Booked Women, we are big on community and love when we can work with our peers to create something special.

This event is a collaboration between Fully Booked Women, and the teams from GROW Assembly and sister restaurants Massi and Mister Bianco.
