The next time you go out dining and drinking and get that warm, fuzzy feeling, it might not be because you've had one too many. Hopefully, it'll be because the money you spent on your meal and beverage is being used to support an extremely important cause.

That's one of the aims of Scarf's regular dinners, with the proceeds used to provide migrants with training, mentoring and employment in the hospitality industry. The social enterprise works to help refugees, asylum seekers and recent migrants find work by raising awareness and funding barriers to employment. To date, 208 young people have been supported through this program.

Running on Tuesdays between March 26 and May 21, the series will, this time round, be held at Fitzroy's Rochester Hotel. Each dinner features a two-course set menu for $45 a head, designed by executive chef Mischa Tropp, who has drawn inspiration from his Keralan heritage to create dishes such as spiced roast pumpkin with mint chutney and roast chicken in tamarind and Kashmiri chilli curry. There'll also be a hefty lineup of sides, including flaky paratha, poppadoms, rice and green mango pickle.

A dinner that is sure to inspire the community to do some good, this campaign by Scarf will leave you with a full stomach and heart. You can reserve your spot via the Scarf website.
