a 90s-themed high school canteen that’s absolutely studded with the city’s biggest celebrity chefs

n the evening that launches Vivid, we’ve taken over the Food Hall, Quay Quarter Tower – right in the heart of Circular Quay – and turned it into a 90s-themed high school canteen that’s absolutely studded with the city’s biggest celebrity chefs. Join us at TUCK SHOP, a one-off ticketed nostalgic food party, where you’ll get eight of the fanciest 90s-inspired snacks by our celebrity chef all-stars. Their snacks have been inspired by the food and bev stallholders in the Food Hall, which includes Lotus Dumpling Bar, Nam Nam and more to be announced.

Pop on your best mood ring, your chunkiest mules, Dad’s Ken Done jumper, and some baggy Keppers because TUCK SHOP will have rumpus room breakout spaces complete with arcade games and a giant Jenga. Legendary Sydney Gen X DJ, DJ BC, will be spinning classic 90s hits for the evening.

While we’re keeping our chefs’ names under wraps just for the moment, we can reveal that the event will also support the incredible hospitality social enterprise, Plate It Forward, with CEO Shaun Christie-David, winner of The Good Food Guide’s Awards inaugural Innovator of the Year 2024, selling everybody’s tuck shop fave Pizza Pockets which will help support the charity.

But wait, there’s more! No High School canteen is complete without a Bake Sale, so we’ve enlisted not one, but two of the country’s favourite pastry masters to supply sweet treats for the evening! Christopher Thé, the founder of Black Star Pastry and creator of the world’s most Instagrammed cake (that Strawberry Watermelon Cake) will be serving up the classic Aussie retro favourite, a Vanilla Slice, complete with cassette tape insignia. Charlotte Ree, the celebrated home cook and author of Heartbake, will also be slinging her slices of Basque Cheesecake.

Date: Friday 24 May 2024
Early Bird: 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
