This July Hammer and Tong is handing over the reigns for three nights to guest chefs for their second pop-up dinner series, Friends with Benefits.
Executive chef Simon Ward hands over the keys to of his Fitzroy kitchen to a host of young chefs, who’ll each be given the opportunity to create their own four-course tasting menu.
“It’s a great opportunity for our loyal customers to experience different chefs and to welcome a new crowd of people to our space,” Ward explains.
First off the chopping block is ‘The Age Young Chef of the Year 2013’ Mark Briggs (2 Jul). Briggs earned his stripes as head chef at Vue De Monde and The Sharing House before moving to his current position at Dig A Pony in Yarraville.
Next week Nick Stanton (Nieuw Amsterdam, ex Woods of Windsor) will be dishing up American-inspired grub, while on 30 Jul Rick Pearson (Cafe Vue) keeps the US theme running with a Southern BBQ showcase.
We can think of worse ways to spend that tax return.
