Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has unveiled its 2023 menu – reflecting a commitment to celebrate the city and deliver an extraordinary culinary experience for every guest, every time.
Highlights include the use of native ingredients, such as wattleseed, lemon myrtle, macadamia and Kakadu plum, which combine beautifully with local, fresh, seasonal produce. Healthy, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-friendly choices and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options are integral to every menu.
MCEC’s executive chef, Peter Haycroft, stated: “We create food that showcases the many flavours and ingredients available on our doorstep.”
“Supporting home-grown is very important to us. Our 2023 menu showcases the many riches on offer, from High Country pork and Mt Macedon duck to Great Ocean Road cheese, Yarra Valley caviar and Warragul greens. And 90 per cent of our beverage menu is sourced from Victoria’s winemakers, breweries and distilleries.
“Sourcing produce locally and growing herbs, citrus and flowers on-site delivers outstanding ingredients and also helps reduce our carbon footprint.”
