The hospitality industry is much broader than people may think. It’s exciting, fun, busy, sexy and full of opportunities. The Forge Pizzeria too is a bit of a surprise packet; employing nearly 100 people its two award winning restaurants, event and party venue, rolling oven and catering services. 

The Ballarat Careers Expo,held at Ballarat Grammar on Monday 15 August from 7pm, helped us to tell our story and let people know more about our business and the opportunities that exist with us and in the hospitality industry.

Locally sourced because local is best

In preparing for this Sunday’s Winter Roast in Housey Housey, a lot of thought went into creating a menu with locally and regionally sourced produce. As a business our mission is to use only the finest and freshest quality regional produce and this event menu is a wonderful example of just that.

If you look closely, Ballarat and the surrounding region is abundant to small to mediumfarms producing high quality products and we were excited to use these suppliers for the upcoming roast.

With Ballarat the food scene, culture and overall quality on the rise this was a great opportunity to showcase some of the best Chef’s Ballarat has to offer and why Ballarat is a place to visit for Melbournites in the near future.
