An open flame conjures magic. It’s there in the glowing coals, the curl of smoke. Autumn evenings invite us to draw closer – and we know just the place.

Expect fire-fuelled mastery as chefs loved for their creative touch get to work in the Town Square Kitchen. Together Karen Martini, James Lowe and Tim Hardy will craft a menu inspired by the most primal of cooking methods. Yalumba wines will accompany each dish, with rare releases to shine alongside dazzling classics from our museum collection.

This will be Martini’s first appearance at Tasting Australia. An international talent for more than two decades, her influence spans cookbooks, television and restaurants across Melbourne and Sydney. Mediterranean flavours feature in Martini’s recipes, which fuse comfort with classic finesse.

The London-based Lowe – head chef at one Michelin-starred Lyle’s – swapped an early dream of becoming a pilot to cook professionally. Fresh, seasonal produce is a mainstay of his dishes, whose simplicity belies the skill and panache guiding them.

Hardy stars in Tasmania, where his 16-seater Van Bone is found in the hamlet of Marion Bay. Gourmet Traveller named the restaurant Australia’s best destination dining experience for 2023, recognition of the care and craft that go into each of its remarkable degustation menus.

The fire is set. Be there as three culinary maestros unite for one unforgettable evening.
