It might be deepest winter here in Melbourne, but come July 23 and 24, St Kilda's Pontoon is set to enjoy a taste of that balmy European summer, when it hosts a fiery Spanish fiesta.

Josephine Pignolet Young Chef 2018 award winner Kylie Millar, along with Stokehouse's own Marco Valcárcel Alonso, will take over the kitchen to deliver a lively $50 five-course feast, celebrating the bold flavours of Spain's Basque region.

Experience the vibrancy of the area's traditional cuisine, as you journey through the pair's specially designed menu of gilda (Basque's take on the pintxo), tapas, shared mains and desserts. Expect dishes like jamon and Pyengana cheese croquettes, flame-grilled bocado de la reina (the tender cut of beef known as 'the queen's bite') with slow-cooked shallots and anchovy glaze, and a classic Basque-style cheesecake with burnt orange.

To match, there'll be a full Spanish drinks offering, including wines, cocktails and plenty of crisp Estrella Lager.
