A big Easter egg for a big cause


Our giant Easter egg is back again for the Good Friday Appeal (GFA) and it’s even bigger than last year!

Once again our incredibly talented team of in-house pastry chefs have handcrafted one of Australia’s largest chocolate Easter eggs, this year surrounded by an edible farmyard of chocolate animals.

The one-of-a-kind creation has been donated by MCEC to the Good Friday Appeal Online Auction.

Weighing in at more than 60kg, it is made with premium Belgium chocolate donated by our supplier, Creative Ingredients.

This year’s farmyard theme was inspired by our Victorian food philosophy: to source the freshest seasonal produce direct from local farmers, producers and winemakers across Victoria.

The pastry team have donated more than 50 hours of their time to craft this masterpiece, with all proceeds donated to the Appeal.

To place a bid on the item and support The Royal Children’s Hospital click here.

The Giant Easter Egg and Farmyard will be displayed in the Convention Centre foyer for the public to admire during the Good Friday Appeal’s Kids Day Out from 10.00am – 6.00pm on Friday 3 April 2015.

What’s new on the menu at MCEC?


We’re excited to announce we recently launched our new menu planning guide, with more than 20 per cent of our menu items newly added or updated. These items include a mouth-watering High Tea by our talents in-house pastry chefs and new live cooking station menus.

In response to conference trends, greater event diversity and an increased need for retail offerings we have also developed a retail catering guide, which explains our on-site cafés, fixed kiosks and 10 pop-up outlets.

Our Food and Beverage team are extremely passionate about making sure our offering reflects Melbourne’s reputation as one of the greatest culinary cities in the world. Both these guides continue to tell our story of sourcing fresh, seasonal produce locally and creating food in-house, thanks to our skilled team of chefs. They also ensure our food brand Made represents our entire food offering across both catering and retail.

Watch this space for more exciting announcements soon!
