    MCG chefs win gold medal

    Jul 30, 2012

    MCG Epicure chefs Aaron Duffy and Deniz Karaca at the 2012 Chef's Table AwardsThe MCC’s excellent fine dining offerings at the MCG received further recognition when Epicure chefs Aaron Duffy and Deniz Karaca won Clubs Victoria’s Chef's Table Fine Dining Gold Medal on Sunday night.

    The award is an annual event open to chefs from clubs across Victoria. Entrants must complete written submissions made up of two sections: a menu and kitchen procedures.

    Judges considered factors such as menu structure and composition, seasonality of produce used, menu spelling and grammar, costing accuracy and food and wine matching, progressiveness of the procedures and their benefits and food safety and hygiene practices.

    Aaron Duffy is chef de cuisine in the MCC Members Reserve, while Deniz Karaca is chef de cuisine pastry at the MCG.

    Their victory makes it back-to-back success for Epicure’s MCG chefs after Blair Humphrey and Adriano Biondi took out the same award last year.

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