The Good Food Editor’s Dinner presented by David Jones Food

Date: Friday 14 June
Time: 6:30pm
Venue: Good Food Month Restaurant at Canvas House, 136 Buckhurst St, South Melbourne

We’re assembling the whos-who of the food industry in Australia and asking them to share their insights and anecdotes into the wonderful world of food… over an incredible dinner with matched wines, of course.

You’ve read their words and consumed their reviews, now you’re invited to join National Good Food Editor Ardyn Bernoth and Chief Restaurant Critic Gemima Cody to chat about all things restaurants and dining.


Talking food is acclaimed chef Jason Barratt, head chef of Halcyon House’s two-hatted restaurant Paper Daisy. Jason’s CV is dotted with some of the country’s best kitchens, including Attica, Stokehouse and Raes on Wategos. Joining him is executive chef Nick Mahlook, whose ocean-to-plate philosophy is keeping Melbourne’s The Atlantic Group very busy (he’s also Stokehouse alumni as well).

And finally, she’s the woman behind the images that make your stomach rumble, industry photographer Nikki To will be sharing her anecdotes and food photography insights. From how to capture the perfect Insta shot, to creating timeless images that elevate dishes into food icons, you’ll discover why Nikki is the photographer that top chefs like Peter Gilmore have on speed dial.

You’ll feast on a divine four-course meal that has been prepared using the exacting standard that the best-of-the-best expect!

The lineup for this captivating and vibrant event will continue to grow, with more talented food folk to be announced shortly. Invite your friends to join you in breaking bread with the industry’s most accomplished talent, and get your tickets quickly before they sell out.
