“I’m looking forward to being a part of one of Australia’s greatest sporting events and showcasing a selection of Quay’s signature dishes down in Melbourne,” he says.

Acclaimed UK Michelin Star chef Angela Hartnett will create a five-course degustation menu, which will feature seasonal Australian food with an Italian accent.
