Getting a table at Sydney's very own Firedoor is almost impossible these days — you'll likely be booking months in advance. But thank the gods for Mona Farm who have created a new way to check out the culinary phenomenon.

They've organised a one-off luxurious journey through their 124-acre award-winning estate, culminating with a theatrical fire-inspired menu thought up by Firedoor's Lennox Hastie and Tristan Rebbettes of Mona Farm. It has got to be the best way to experience both teams' creations.

From November 7-9, a maximum of 38 lucky guests will get to stay at the farm's stylish guest houses — each set within a historic building at the farm. They come with fully stocked (and complementary) mini bars and a special breakfast made for guests on both mornings.

You'll spend the first night rugged up in your guest house, receiving a three-course dinner from Tristan's spring 'Guest House Menu'. It's designed to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own Guest House. Dress code: whatever the hell you like.

But the second night's dinner is what you came here for. The theatrically prepared five-course fire-inspired menu fuses traditional and contemporary cooking styles together — all while championing the sustainable ethos of both businesses.

Expect a range of paddock-to-plate produce such as Tristan's house-made smoked ricotta and Mona Farm Wessex Saddleback sausage. And those familiar with the genius of Lennox Hastie will be pleased to hear that his signature dry-aged beef will be making a strong celebrity appearance on the evening. Plus, to make it a real party, each course will be paired with top notch wines.

And there's plenty to do in between feasts. The Mona Farm team have organised some complementary guided art and sculpture tours of their fantastic own collection, garden tours and fitness sessions (if you like to mix exercise with exceptional eating).

Tickets for the November 7-9 even can be purchased here. Due to the limited number of tickets, it is a case of first in best dined.
