Honoured Guests

Ms. Donna Davis, Member for Parramatta, was one of the honoured guests at AMSA's Annual Dinner. Coming from a farm in Tasmania, and having experienced for herself what it was like arriving in Sydney when she was 19 to study politics, she well understood the feeling of starting a new beginning in a strange place, which explains her appreciation and affinity for those with a migrant story. There are many in AMSA who share her story and understand how important, comforting and empowering it is to find support in a community.

Ms. Davis is passionate about connecting and uniting people, and providing support and initiatives that can help support a whole range of different aspects of life. That's why it is important to support people from our multicultural communities that have small businesses, and to ensure they have access to the services they need to continue to grow their capability and thrive.

Ms. Patricia Prociv, Deputy Lord Mayor for Parramatta is another honoured guest AMSA was delighted to host. Parramatta has about 140 different ethnic groups in the Rosehill ward - an important undertaking to bringing about harmony in a multicultural society. She is keen to deliver appropriate developments that complement and drive a multicultural community.

And Ms. Prociv, as a lover of the variety of gastronomy in a multicultural city, feels very much at home with AMSA and their passion for South East Asian food culture! Partaking and experiencing the beautiful flavours of each other's gastronomy is a beautiful, wholesome way to bring cultures closer, to feel comfort in similarities and to learn and grow from our differences.

And speaking about food, wait till you hear about who curated the menu for AMSA's Annual Dinner 2023. You're going to wish you had gotten tickets to go!

Audra Morrice's sensational menu

AMSA may be busy fostering networks, but one thing they always have time for, and place considerable attention to, is good food to be shared with everyone! The philosophy of authentic cuisine from everyone's culture is honoured, celebrated and very much looked forward to in any of AMSA's events, big or small!

Audra Morrice, MasterChef Judge

Guests at this year's Annual Dinner were incredibly delighted as the culinary sensation Audra Morrice curated AMSA's Annual Dinner 2023 menu! Tastebuds had been tingling ever since that was announced, and Audra's Malaysian and Singaporean roots had clearly sparked more than a wave of nostalgia for guests that evening.

Many will know Audra Morrice as a finalist in the exciting competition of MasterChef Australia in 2012 and she is now one of the esteemed judges on the the exhilarating MasterChef Singapore. Beyond her famous TV personality, she is also the author of two cookbooks, an advocate for sustainable gastronomic tourism with the Pacific Asia Travel Association, a board member on the Australian-ASEAN Council and a culinary artist with her very own cooking series, "Tasty Conversations" which airs on the illustrious SBS Food Network.

"As AMSA is celebrating multiculturalism this year, everything on the menu needs to be straight from home, and I couldn't have picked better dishes because a couple of these are from my mother's kitchen. I am able to share that with everyone, and keep it authentic even as we jazz up the plating a bit to keep it more modern, but the flavours will always be succinct, authentic, and full of Southeast Asian, Singaporean or Malaysian umami flavours."

Hear it from Audra herself!
