QUT Learning Potential Fund Dinner

Our Brief

As event catering partners for QUT Venues and Events, Cuisine on Cue was entrusted with crafting an unforgettable menu and evening for a VIP invite-only fundraising event sponsored by a former QUT Deputy Chancellor. The event aimed to raise funds for the QUT Learning Potential Fund, providing critical support to students in financial need, through scholarships, grants, and emergency assistance to ensure they can pursue their academic goals at QUT.

Exclusive wine from a private collection was generously donated for the evening, forming the basis for crafting a menu designed to perfectly complement the wine selection.

Our Approach

Set against the backdrop of the Brisbane city skyline, Room Three Sixty provided a stunning venue for the event. The twinkling city lights illuminated the night sky complimented by elegant theming, featuring rose gold cutlery, black tablecloths, marble accents, natural stone, and earthy crockery, which set the stage for the culinary delights of the menu to truly shine.

Using the venue’s commercial kitchen and onsite equipment, the Cuisine on Cue team focused on flawless execution, ensuring every aspect of the menu and service exceeded expectations.

Event Experience

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a selection of delicious canapes and vintage sparkling wine, setting the tone for the evening. Following introductory formalities, Cuisine on Cue’s Executive Chef and the QUT dinner sponsor took to the stage to guide guests through the menu and wine experience that awaited them. 

Guests were treated to six course culinary journey, expertly paired with exclusive wines, with additional exclusive wine tasting opportunities available at the bar.

The evening was a resounding success, with guests thoroughly enjoying the refined menu, and quality service provided by Cuisine on Cue. The event organiser commended Cuisine on Cue for their talent and dedication to delivering on the brief, ensuring a truly memorable dining experience.
