This month, much-loved Melbourne restaurateur Morgan McGlone will kick off an enticing new series of chef collaborations, which'll see a handful of Aussie kitchen legends put their own spin on his famed Belles hot chicken.

First up, catch Restaurant Shik's chef-owner, and former Belles sommelier, Peter Jo in the kitchen at Belles' Fitzroy headquarters on July 29. The innovative Korean chef — best known as Kimchi Pete — will deliver a one-off menu featuring Secret-Style Chicken Ribs, his signature kimchi and a crafty cocktail of pear, ouzo and soju to round out the fun.

Jo's creative offerings will be available for one day only, between 3–7pm. A selection of wines from Victorian winery Momento Mori will also be on offer for the event. If you haven't had a chance to try these funky, natural wines, this is the perfect opportunity to do so as winemaker Dane Johns will be on hand to walk you through them.

Later in the series, Monty Koludrovic, from Bondi's Icebergs, will shake up the kitchen at Belles Hot Chicken Darling Square on August 26, and Shannon Martinez of Smith & Daughters taking over Belles' Tramsheds outpost on November 4.

More Rules of The Roost collaborations are set to be announced — keep an eye on the website for updates.
