It’ll be just like MasterChef, with more beers and less crying.

Celebrity chef George Calombaris brought his casual Greek eatery, Jimmy Grants, to The Kitchens at Robina Town Centre last year.

Already a well-established brand in the chef’s hometown of Melbourne, this was the first Jimmy Grants to come north of the border, with the Gold Coast shopping centre beating Brisbane and Sydney to the punch.

The venue is already a favourite because of its killer Greek souvas and feta chips, but it’s set to get even more popular this week when Calombaris himself pays a visit.

The Friends of George Party will feature live music, $5 souvas and cocktails, and schooners on tap, as well as the chance to mingle with the great man.

You can ask him every question you’ve ever had about Matt Preston that you’ve been afraid to ask. It’s now or never.

The Friends of George Party will be held at Jimmy Grants (Robina Town Centre) this Friday 17 March from 5:30pm to 8pm.
