Event Details

The vibrant flavours of West Africa meet modern brasserie cuisine in the stunning historic setting of The Porter House Hotel Sydney – MGallery for this unique Chef Series pairing. 

In the elegant ambience of Dixson & Sons, within The Porter House, Ghanaian chef Selassie Atadika, renowned for her pioneering New African Cuisine, will collaborate with executive chef Steven Hartert, whose expertise in luxury and fine dining cuisine with traditional European twist sets the stage for a truly unique fusion of style and tradition. 

This exclusive menu will be served over two spectacular evenings, showcasing the best of both chefs’ culinary philosophies.

All in the charming setting of Dixson & Sons at The Porter House, the restored former tobacco factory in the CBD, with its well-worn brick, polished timber and arched windows.

Specifically selected for their distinct but complimentary cultural backgrounds and techniques, each chef pair will create a never-to-repeated menu that celebrates the best NSW produce and suppliers.

Beyond being a celebration of culinary innovation, this is an example of the power and beauty of diversity and communion through food. Join us as we forge new connections and try something completely new together.
