His friend, Australian TV presenter Eddie McGuire, helped him find a new job after losing his Made Establishment (MAdE) hospitality business to liquidators in 2020.
George had been ordered to repay $7.8 million in unpaid wages to 515 current and former employees.
The saga was a series of scandals – including charges against Calombaris for assaulting a teenage football fan – that sent the ex-businessman on a dark downward spiral where he “cried a lot” and found solace in liquor bottles.

After hitting rock bottom, he moved with his family to Arthur’s Seat on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula in March 2020, where he has since adopted a community-oriented outlook on life.
Now high-profile hoteliers and their glamorous wives have given the former reality TV star a fresh start in hospitality by hiring him as culinary director for their luxury beachfront hotel, Hotel Sorrento.
Calombaris joined the family business, owned by Rob and Anne Pitt and run by their children Bridget, Marcus and Myles – who is married to model and Instagram influencer Brooke Hogan – after meeting their famous mutual friend Eddie.

“I was walking with Eddie McGuire and he was whispering in my ear to go back to work. He said: “Enough is enough, time has passed, we want the chef back,” Calombaris told The Herald Sun.
“He wanted me to do a pop-up and I said I didn’t have the infrastructure to do it. One thing led to another and I got to know the Pitt family who own this incredible institution that has been in their family for 41 years.
“They have big plans, big ambitions, they want to double their presence. So they brought me on board to help and support. i really love it I even learned how to pour a beer the other day.”
Founded in 1872 and owned and operated by the Pitts since 1981, this boutique hotel features an award-winning restaurant, several bars, first class accommodation and conference and wedding facilities.
