Masterchef’s George Calombaris Leaves His Diners Barfing

George Calombaris’s Mother’s Day menu did not go quite as planned with a few dinners vomiting and diahhorea. is reporting

A Melbourne restaurant co-owned by George Calombaris is under investigation over a food poisoning outbreak following a Mother’s Day luncheon.

The Department of Health and the local council are looking into the MasterChefjudges’ Hellenic Republic in Kew after reports that at least two groups of diners fell sick on Sunday evening.

It is believed the patrons — who suffered from vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps — consumed items from a set menu designed for the special occasion.

The Greek restaurant reportedly welcomed 600 diners through its doors on Mother’s Day.

The response from his company is:

A spokeswoman for Calombaris’ company, Made Establishment, told Fairfax there was “no evidence as to the cause of this,” adding: “The welfare and enjoyment of our guests is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to resolving this as our highest priority.”

Maybe this has been the secret to George’s weight loss.

Though in good news for George is that the industrial relations tribunal has issued a ruling saying that the lowest paid restaurant and cafe workers will have their penalty rates reduced for working Sunday. I don’t really see the logic in that.

“At a Calombaris establishment, you can retch assured we really put the “hospital” into hospitality”

7 brain dead dave { 05.16.14 at 1:09 pm }

“At George’s, the only bowl you’ll be gushing over is the one in the toilets”

“After one of George’s dumplings , you’ll be dumping in no time”

‘If that was my restaurant that dish would not leave the kitchen….it would stay in the bathroom’

14 Littlepetal { 05.16.14 at 2:58 pm }

Press release from George:

15 Pollywaffle { 05.16.14 at 3:02 pm }

Little petal don’t give those judges any ideas to make their scoff sessions last the distance

16 brain dead dave { 05.16.14 at 3:03 pm }

There’s a lot of culture in George’s dishes~ cultures of thriving Staphlococcus and Salmonella. Nothing like a piece of fetid Feta to bring on some Hellenic hurling.

17 Pollywaffle { 05.16.14 at 3:04 pm }

We do rustic food from the heart, I mean caustic food that makes you …f**t

18 Pollywaffle { 05.16.14 at 3:07 pm }

Gotta stop after this one and do some work….

Maybe George’s health inspectors are all from the greek island where everyone is blind ?

19 LW { 05.16.14 at 3:08 pm }

“Oh my god, am I still o-live after that spewikopita?

20 brain dead dave { 05.16.14 at 3:12 pm }

There was a takeover bid on George’s restaurant ~ by a company that makes rat poison.

27 brain dead dave { 05.16.14 at 3:46 pm }

George won’t be giving himself a pat on the bacteria after this disturbing ,colon constricting chain of events. At least two groups of diners and on Mother’s Day as well.

28 emp { 05.16.14 at 4:46 pm }
29 daisy { 05.16.14 at 7:04 pm }

A result of too much knife licking.

30 brain dead dave { 05.16.14 at 7:21 pm }

“The council’s community development director Carolyn McClean confirmed that faecal samples were also collected from victims to assist the investigation.

The Department of Health has urged anyone who had fallen ill after eating at the restaurant last Sunday to seek medical attention”

I wonder how many of the 600 diners were afflicted?

Thanks for the link,emp.

Goes to show and prove that Greeks can’t cook! All their dishes are stolen from Arab and Turkish dishes. They take their foods, make them look and taste like shit, and call it greek. I hate you George, I wish it was you with gastro instead of those poor people who ate at your restaurant.

Which millennia BC did this thievery take place?

33 Culinary Boner { 05.19.14 at 5:24 pm }
