Congratulations to our Pizzaioli Mirco (Eastland) and Vincenzo (Essendon) for taking out 1st place at the Australian Pizza Championships, in the Napoletana STG and Classica divisions!

A little bit of food at the great @scottpickettchef @matilda159domain beautiful!!! Thank you guys.

Spent the week at the @finefoodexpo, presenting and speaking with some industry legends, and keeping up to date with hospitality trends and news. There's always so much to learn, see and eat - if you missed out this year, make sure you lock it in your calendar for 2019!

Happy National Cheese Pizza Day! Today I attempted the official World Record for the most number of cheeses on a pizza - 150! We managed to exceed that and combined a total of 154 cheeses! Stay tuned to find out if I was successful in becoming a Guinness World Record holder! In the meantime, the 154 cheese pizza is available at all Gradi locations until Sunday (or until sold out)!

Tomorrow is National Cheese Pizza Day and to celebrate, I'm attempting an official World Record - 150 Cheese Pizza! It will be available in all Gradi venues from tomorrow until Sunday! Say cheeeeese!

Still my greatest achievement - my three amazing kids! I'm so proud to be your Papà. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there!

So much fun hosting today's special Fathers Day Masterclass! It's not too late for your Dad to get his hands dirty, we have 3 additional classes scheduled over Sept/Oct. Visit for further details, or to make a booking. Hope to see you there!
