Working in Australia's hospitality industry has never been a tougher gig than it is right now. So, why — and how — are bar staff, chefs, publicans and restaurateurs stepping up their game? We're going to find out.

Join us on Monday, September 6 at 1pm for Hot Takes & Takeaways, a special virtual event. In partnership with Uber Eats, we're taking a deep dive into the Aussie food scene to find out what it takes to get plates of food on tables (or doorsteps) in 2021.

We've enlisted comedian, former Triple J presenter and all-round legend Gen Fricker to host this special lunchtime chat streamed live from Butter in Surry Hills. And she'll be joined by chefs Julian Cincotta (Butter) and Cuong Nguyen (Hello Auntie) for an engaging chat on the highs and the messy lows of working in hospo today. No topic is off-limits — from wild menu hacks to vaccine passports.

Throughout the show, you'll also get to test your foodie knowledge for the chance to score a $25 Uber Eats voucher.

Better yet, this virtual lunchtime event is completely free. Simply head to our Facebook event and hit attending to get a reminder just before it kicks off.

In the meantime, check out Uber Eats' Enterprise Hub if you'd like to learn more about what restaurants are doing to survive — and thrive — during this tough time.
