AUSTRALIAN racing legend Bart Cummings, the trainer of a record 12 Melbourne Cup winners, will be honoured with a state funeral.

    EVEN from the grave Bart Cummings could win his 13th Melbourne Cup.

    AUSTRALIA say there are no excuses for not winning the only major trophy they’ve never laid their hands on, next year’s World Twenty20 in India.

    MELBOURNE Storm has travelled to Queensland four days early to cope with the NRL’s scheduling, which coach Craig Bellamy has called a “joke”.

    WHILE much of Australia was gripped to social media on Sunday waiting for No. 38 to take the field, here at Mile High Stadium in Denver it was much the same.

    Epicure honoured at Chef's Table Awards

    An Epicure chef hard at it in the MCC Committee RoomThe club’s weekday restaurant offerings in the Committee Room continue to please members and guests, and it seems the word is spreading.

    The MCC and Epicure Catering were recognised for their fine culinary fare with a silver medal in the Chef’s Table Awards at the Clubs Victoria Presidents’ Night on June 22. 

    Chefs Adriano Biondi and Blair Humphrey also won the Most Balanced and Creative Menu category for the three-course menu they prepared for the judges in the Committee Room.

    The awards aim to develop the skills of chefs and apprentices working within registered clubs in Victoria, through statewide recognition of their culinary abilities. The dishes prepared by contestants were measured on presentation, taste, menu creativity and food/wine matching, among other qualities.

    It has been a busy time in the Committee Room.  After a very popular global food theme to coincide with the FIFA World Cup last month, a stunning menu of French classics to mark Bastille Day was also very well received.

    To see what all the fuss is about, members may make a booking for lunch on Monday to Friday by ringing the club on (03) 9657 8888.
