Stokehouse and Fish by Moonlite come together for a Greek feast

Jason Staudt and Matt Germanchis join forces for a special dinner celebrating Greek Easter.

To celebrate Greek Easter, Stokehouse’s Executive Chef Jason Staudt is teaming up with seafood master Matt Germanchis from Fish by Moonlite for a special one-off event at the iconic St Kilda beachside restaurant.

Kicking off at 6pm on Sunday, 2 May, the two chefs and friends will put on a traditional Greek Easter feast with a few twists along the way for the diners.

“Matt and I have been wanting to do something for Greek Easter for a long time now, so we’re excited to see how the first event goes. Hopefully it’ll become a permanent fixture on the calendar for years to come,” says Jason.

Matt recently opened up a popular takeaway fish and chip joint in the Anglesea Village with his partner Gemma Germanchis after a successful stint heading up the hatted Captain Moonlite at Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club, which was adored by locals, tourists and foodies alike. Fish by Moonlite also doubles as a fishmonger, where customers can select fresh and locally caught seafood and cook it at home for lunch or dinner.

“Jason and I share the same mindset when it comes to food – we’re both very produce driven. You don’t have to be Greek or Orthodox to enjoy this holiday, everyone’s welcome to come together for a great day of food and culture,” says Matt.

Dishes on the night include cod head dolmades, raw Abrolhos Island scallop with bottarga and orange, and charred Aquna Murray cod with avgolemono (Greek lemon soup) and rice. For mains, guests will enjoy slow-cooked lamb forequarter rack over the embers, overcooked roman beans & tomato, Andean potatoes with oregano brulée and village salad with house-made feta.

“The avgolemono brings back fond memories of my childhood. I remember coming home from school and smelling the fresh, vibrant soup made with lots of love by my grandma,” says Matt.

Stokehouse Precinct’s New Group Pastry Chef Ash Smith will also be dishing up a special dessert for the evening – his take on the classic red egg, which is enjoyed during Greek Easter.

Tickets for Greek Easter with Jason and Matt are $130pp, with group bookings of 8+ only – because in true Greek style, the menu will be designed to share. Round up old friends and family and head to to reserve your spot.
