When Marco Pierre White hits Australia in May, he'll treat food fans to his first-ever live theatre show. He does love notching up firsts, after all. He was the first British chef to be awarded three Michelin stars. When that happened when he was 33, he was the youngest chef to do so, too. And, amid all the chatter his work and life has earned — in no small part thanks to his cookbook White Heat, the 1990 tome that played up his "bad boy" image — he's been dubbed "the first celebrity chef" as well.

White won't just be taking to the stage on his 2023 Aussie tour, however. In what definitely isn't a first, he's heading to the kitchen — this time for a four-course dinner on the Gold Coast. If you'd like to tuck into a meal co-curated by the chef, mark Saturday, May 27 in your diary and make a date with HOTA, Home of the Arts.

Also overseeing the one-night-only affair: Palette Executive Chef Dayan Hartill-Law, with the dinner taking place at HOTA's onsite restaurant. They'll whip up a menu that's guided by locally sourced ingredients, and paired with top-notch wine. And, in addition to getting to eat the end results, patrons will also see White in action in the kitchen — and hear from him, too, via a 15–20-minute Q&A session.

Unsurprisingly, this hot ticket is has limited seats, with only 80 folks able to attend. If you're keen, you'll need to register at the HOTA website before 11.59pm on Sunday, April 23 for your chance to go along.

Exactly what's on White and Hartill-Law's menu hasn't yet been revealed, but this is a rare chance to enjoy the former's cuisine right here in southeast Queensland.
