Celebrity Masterchef George Colombaris brought excitement back into Melbourne’s restaurant scene late last year when he reopened the doors to his much-awaited Press Club. Famous for its delicious five and eight course degustation menus, the all refurbished Press Club returned to wow its guests once again with its signature nights of molecular gastronomy.

Since its opening, the Press Club has played host to anxious foodies and business people alike. A charming open space and luxurious booth furnishings allow for only 36 guests, a much smaller but equally sophisticated Press Club dining experience. Head Chef Luke Croston offers a Greek inspired menu, a reflection of Colombaris’ heritage. Croston is also Head Chef of Colombaris’ new restaurant Gazi.

When the time came for the new Press Club kitchen, Colombaris turned to trusted partner Moffat Australia requesting equipment that not only performed well but also looked the part, one that acted as a ‘piece of furniture’ to the sleek and stylish fit out.

Contributing to much of the kitchen’s redesign, equipment included two Waldorf Bold 4-zone induction units and a Waldorf twin pan fryer.

“The induction cooktops give the team the versatility and cooking power they need to produce a ten course menu to the highest standard”, said Moffat’s National Sales Manager Otto Meile.

Complimenting the cooktops, two Convotherm 6.10 mini combi steamers feature either side of the cook bank, with tray timer modes used for consistent quality output during service.

Like many of Colombaris’ establishments, Moffat also installed two Friginox under bench units below the Convotherm mini combi steamer ovens as well as a Washtech M2 pass through dishwasher and GL glasswasher with Reverse Osmosis capability for perfectly polished glassware every time.
