If you've been looking for an excuse to visit Maha North, Shane Delia's elegant meze and cocktail bar, this could be it. Maha North is teaming up with Yarra Valley's born and bred Mac Forbes, who is known for his experimental cool climate wines which champion the region's unique terroir.

On Tuesday, October 3, Shane and the team will throw a specially-designed, three-course culinary journey, paired with a curated selection of Mac Forbes' wines. Mac Forbes will also be on hand to share his unique knowledge on the world of Victorian winemaking.

The menu for this once-off evening will run to the likes of a prawn tartare, paired with local kataifi and wakame salmon caviar. Salted cod is dressed with a dill falafel, while oysters are married with basterma and capsicum jam. Also on the lineup: a cheese and truffle medfouna, and stuffat tal-fenek bhal tal familija Delia — braised rabbit served with an array of sides.

Where Delia's long-running CBD fine diner Maha is pushing the creative envelope, Maha North is the more classic-leaning, smart-yet-casual counterpart. It has similar vibrant flavours, but with a menu that beckons you to sit down and settle in for some good old-fashioned feasting.
