$99 Problems, This Dinner Ain't One

Two of the city's best chefs are teaming up for a one-off dinner.

Taste Tuesdays is back this May for its second instalment. This time, the new monthly dinner series will see renowned Aussie chef Mark Best (of the now-closed Marque and Pei Modern) team up with Acme's head chef Mitch Orr for an epic showcase of culinary talent.

Both chefs are winners of the esteemed Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year award — Best in 1995 and Orr in 2010 — so guests can expect one seriously impressive meal to be placed in front of them. The duo will cook up a menu prepared especially for the event, starting with snacks by Orr and followed by a five-course extravaganza by Best. Tickets to the event also include a welcome aperitif and an after-dinner digestif cocktail, with the option of an additional wine pairing also available on the night.

Taste Tuesdays is a global initiative by Taste Festivals, with monthly dinners happening across Sydney, London, Paris and Hong Kong. The dinner series will continue on the second Tuesday of every month and each one will be held at a different Sydney restaurant — so keep an eye on the website for the next dinner announcement.

Tickets for this one-off dinner flew out the door like hot cakes (or, should we say, like baloney sandwiches) but, luckily, we've got our hands on some. And we're giving them away to you. One lucky reader will get two tickets to the sold out dinner, with seats at the pass — in the thick of the action — and complimentary wine pairings for each guest thrown in, too.
