Vivid Sydney is mere weeks away, and we couldn't be keener. One factor of the festival that affects the crowd is the winter chill, but cold won't be a problem when you're immersed in the heat of Vivid Fire Kitchen. Set in the vast concrete halls of The Cutaway as a part of Vivid House, this new addition to the annual Vivid calendar combines primal cooking with modern culinary class.

With several sessions happening from Friday, May 26 to Saturday, June 17, visitors will get plenty of chances to get amongst the flames. But what exactly is on offer? The best pit chefs from around the world are gathering alongside top-shelf Sydney chefs to create culinary masterpieces only possible with a hot grill or open flame.

This is a step up from your dad's Sunday barbecue (with apologies to dad). Grab a seat by the fire to watch the masters work and get a bite of the exclusive menu or take part in a live demo to master the art of the grill with the help of the best in the trade. Including but not limited to, Lennox Hastie (Firedoor), Michelin-starred chef Dave Pynt and Masterchef Australia 2021 runner-up Pete Cambell. Drinks include a signature fire + ice cocktail topped with a flaming marshmallow and served in an edible ice cup, plus more traditional drink choices from Tempus Two, Young Henrys and Mr Black.

Vivid Fire Kitchen will be running nightly between Friday, May 26 and Saturday, June 17 from 6pm to 11pm. Visit the website for more information.
