Great minds think alike, but different minds complement each other a whole lot better. Coming together to collaborate on creative ideas and events that include an out-of-the-box food related concept or element involves an extensive network of relationships with producers, best-in-category operators and brave brands. Melissa's involvement in culinary collaboration includes co-founding TOYS Collective, which was awarded the inaugural Age Good Food Guide and Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide Award for Innovation in 2011. From music festivals to bespoke and corporate events and ideas requiring an integrated culinary element, this is a brain you want to pick.
