Urban List launches virtual dinner party event ‘Isolation Degustation’

Urban List has announced a virtual dinner party called ‘Isolation Degustation’, to be held on October 17 2020.

The announcement:

Urban List has today invited thousands of Australians to join them for the country’s largest virtual dinner party — Isolation Degustation — a show of solidarity for Melbourne on their last Saturday night in lockdown: October 17.

Isolation Degustation encourages Australians to share a meal with Melbourne friends, family and colleagues — staying in for the night and ordering a curated degustation to their door, along with the option to gift one to Melbourne-based mates.

The four-course, home-delivered degustation will be curated by chef Danielle Dixon of Masterchef fame, with courses highlighting premium produce from Victorian farmers and providores alongside signature ingredients from partners, Australian Avocados and Fromager d’Affinois.

Chef Dixon will be supported by the team from culinary innovator, Gathar — Australia’s largest private catering platform — with Gathar CEO, Jodie Mikolta, inspired by the opportunity to bring the country together to share a meal with Melbourne. Urban List Head of Brand Experience, Sophia Wilcox, believes in pairing good food and good vibes. Accompanying the cuisine is a line up of entertainment from renowned Australian musicians and creatives — a video-stream curated in partnership with Melbourne’s Fed Square; reflecting the institution’s fresh focus on delivering adventurous cultural experiences, digitally.

Fed Square Chief Experience Officer said “partnering on Isolation Degustation was a no-brainer for us; Fed Square is all about bringing people together, and what better way to do that than over a delicious meal in celebration of lockdown coming to an end!”

Isolation Degustation sponsor, Belong’s Customer Protagonist, Kelly Schulz, says this dinner is exactly what we needed to connect people again — ”a symbolic reminder thatwe belong to something bigger, we have the power to do something better, and as we get back to our lives we want to do things more consciously.”

Isolation Degustation tickets are now on sale and degustation boxes are available for delivery to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
