Diners will be treated to 11 dishes expertly prepared by guest executive chef Telina Menzies (Aus Venue Co. / Hopscotch Melbourne), and resident VanGo chef Justin Moran, with a focus on open coal barbeque, from Wagyu, Tomahawk steak,  salmon belly, to salted chocolate marrow. Courses will be carefully paired with Lark Whiskys and Wolf beers, including this year’s release of the Wolf of the Willows Lark Barrel Aged Imperial JSP IV and Lark Whisky’s ‘Wolf Release 4.0’ whisky. This will be one hell of a culinary journey.
