East­ern’s ‘Masterchefs’ make fi­nals...again

Inside Golf - - Clubs -

MEL­BOURNE’S East­ern Golf Club has ev­ery right to be proud of their culi­nary staff. The team, con­sist­ing of Tony Rush, Head Chef and Minh Nguyen, Sous Chef, has been se­lected for the sec­ond year run­ning as one of only ten pairs in Vic­to­ria to reach the fi­nals of the Chef ’s Ta­ble 2011 culi­nary competition.

Now in its third year, this culi­nary competition, ‘Chef ’s Ta­ble – award­ing culi­nary in­no­va­tion’ has been cre­ated by Clubs Vic­to­ria (Club­sVIC) to recog­nise and award the many tal­ented, cre­ative chefs and cooks within the not-for­profit, com­mu­nity clubs of Vic­to­ria. Chef ’s Ta­ble en­cour­ages club chefs to think way be­yond ‘chicken parma’ and Sun­day roasts.

“Our menu has pro­vided my­self and team with a great op­por­tu­nity to push the bound­aries and show­case some truly great food which will no doubt be matched with great ser­vice from our cater­ing staff at the Club,’ Rush said.

In the Fi­nals Event last month, teams were judged on the ex­e­cu­tion of a three­course menu, in­clud­ing prepa­ra­tion of the dishes, taste, pre­sen­ta­tion and keep­ing within the given bud­get. Wine match­ing of the dishes was also a re­quire­ment of the competition. In­side Golf was on hand to wit­ness (and taste!) the ex­cel­lent dishes put forth by the East­ern team, and we were ex­tremely im­pressed.

Win­ners of the over­all competition will be an­nounced at the Club­sVIC Chef ’s Ta­ble pre­sen­ta­tion and din­ner in Mel­bourne on Mon­day 8th Au­gust.
