The young-gun chef behind globe-trotting restaurant concept Atlas Dining is teaming up with one of the OGs of Melbourne's Italian food scene, for a one-off feast fuelled by fire. On Tuesday, October 4, you can catch Charlie Carrington as he ventures north of the river and joins Joe Vargetto at his Kew mainstay Mister Bianco.

Guests are in for a smoky, seasonal four-course spread, guided both by Carrington's affinity for cooking over flames and Vargetto's signature Sicilian flavours. The collaborative menu might feature hits like smoked goats cheese and pine nut tortellini in a smoky parmesan and pumpkin broth, duck matched with eggplant caponata and smoked capsicum sauce, and a semifreddo of smoked milk finished with grilled berries and rich chocolate ganache.

Included in your $135 ticket is a series of matched sips, with Scorpo wines and cocktails crafted on Brogan's Way gin among the night's drinks curation.
