30 Under 30 at Embla - SOLD OUT

Lunch with Pieter Buijsse, Giorgia McAllister Forte, Anthony Nguyen, Harvey Noy, Nagesh Seethiah and Anthony Tran.

Our only lunch fixture for the 30 Under 30 series brings together six great talents in the wood-fired kitchen of one of Australia’s best-loved wine bars and one of Melbourne’s most deliciously progressive places to eat.

The home-team hero is Harvey Noy, a chef whose tours of duty in his native England include Scotts of Mayfair and Roux at Parliament Square, and who is now loving the world of fire and ferments on Russell Street.

Not one but two Anthonys of note form part of the line-up – Anthony Nguyen is one of the brightest lights on the team at modern-Asian powerhouse Aru, while Anthony Tran, an alumnus of Stokehouse, Vue de Monde, Quay, Aria and Otto, is now working his magic as a member of the crew at brand-new Collins Street new-Nordic sensation Freyja.

It’s not all Anthonys, mind you. Nagesh Seethiah has quickly won hearts and minds with his Mauritian cooking at his superb new North Melbourne eatery Manzé, Dutch-born Pt Leo Estate sous chef Pieter Buijsse brings with him a wealth of Michelin-starred experience from Hof Van Cleeve in Belgium, Oud Sluis and De Kromme Watergang in the Netherlands, and Pré Catelan and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in France, while Giorgia McAllister Forte has arrived as one of the city’s most exciting patissiers, capturing imaginations with her delectable work.

With the stopless Embla team on deck led by chef Dave Verheul and his fellow co-owner Christian McCabe, and their formidable cellar on call, it’s going to be quite the Sunday session. See you there.
