Hot Coals @ Hurstbridge Haven - Our Events

We have regular events at our home base, Hurstbridge Haven - Tasting Nights & Moods of a Chef Dinners. Please read on below for more details. Occasionally we also run one-off events, which we will add to this page too, as well as our social media (links at bottom of the page).

Duck, Booze & Grooves - Friday October 12

On Friday October 12, we will be having a fabulous event here at the Haven. Chef Mark Woloszyn from Luv-A Duck will cook a degustation menu of 10 delicious duck dishes; we'll have local Nillumbik Estate Wines, plus beer & cider from Hurstbridge Liquor. All this will be accompanied by the soothing sounds of Hurstbridge duo, The Chill Project. Call 1300 HOT COALS to book.

Tasting Nights

At Hot Coals we suggest customers attend a Tasting Night event, so you can come along and sample Hot Coals’ sumptuous menu. We will take the time to answer any questions you may have, and demonstrate the presentation of the catering that can be expected for your special night.

You will have the opportunity to taste a variety of our delicious food. We will endeavor to include both items on your quote, plus items you may not have considered!

We recommend HOT COALS. We had a family Christmas Lunch and they all wanted Pizza. What a Success!! Delicious finger food to start followed by pizzas and yummy salads. Beautifully presented. Efficient and kind staff/ they looked after the odd funny request. Then everything was left immaculate. Thank you.

Hot Coals provided excellent quality food and service, a fantastic variety at a very reasonable price, for our son's 21st, so we could enjoy the 21st birthday party and mingle with his guests.
