Part chef-wrangler, part event maker, part domestic goddess, Sharlee makes it her business to know all there is to know about chefs, restaurants and food around the globe. She created curateEAT out of a love to bring new food experiences to Melburnians. Sharlee recently founded Fully Booked a social community for women in the food and wine industry.
Fully Booked is a social community for women in the food and wine industry. We run regular events that aim to encourage and support engagement, connection and collaboration between the talented up-and-comers and the wise warriors among us.
