Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said  Milan would become a regular face at some of the venue’s key food and wine events and would help the venue develop a greater involvement in Sydney’s energetic culinary scene.

“Lyndey has a very special place in the community and can provide clarity to the fine service, creative cuisine and magnificent wines that give the Centre its place as a world-class venue,” he said.

“We’ve been honoured to work with Lyndey on some of her other initiatives including the Tasting Success mentoring program for women chefs, so we’re delighted to extend that relationship and introduce her talent and energy to the Centre’s identity.”

Milan said she had long been impressed by the Centre’s food and service, particularly at high profile events like the annual Australia Day lunch.

“The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre proudly promotes Australian produce and fine wines and is able to showcase them in unique ways,”  Milan said. “I recently tried Uwe’s duck confit pie in the Bayside Lounge and was hooked immediately.

“This is so much more than a convention centre, it is a venue for world-class fine dining in an exceptional harbour-front location, where anything is possible.”
