The highly anticipated Seven Network Program Launch for 2017 called for a celebration and with My Kitchen Rules being the star of the event, a lavish lunch seemed befitting. Guests flew from around Australia to attend, including acclaimed chefs and My Kitchen Rules Judges Colin Fassnidge, Manu Feildel & Pete Evans alongside other big names in Australian television. Wine & Dine’m Catering set out to impress the 150 VIP attendees with a gourmet three course feast. Brisbane function venue, Lightspace, was dressed up with an abundance of fresh produce, wooden furnishings and incredible lighting by amazing suppliers Brandition and Select Audio Visual. Definitely a lunch to remember!
