This September, head chef Massimo Speroni is welcoming his mentor and two Michelin star chef Valentino Marcattilli to the Bacchus Kitchen.

While we may call ourselves master chefs after successfully pouring hot water into our instant mac ‘n’ cheese with minimal spillage, we aren’t anything close to being restaurant grade cooks – which is why we treat ourselves (far more than necessary) as much as possible whenever we eat out.

Whenever the occasion calls to be a bit fancy (which is always), we don our Sunday best and head down to South Brisbane fave Bacchus for a night of fine dining and wining.

This September, head chef Massimo Speroni is welcoming his mentor and two Michelin star chef Valentino Marcattilli to the Bacchus Kitchen as he showcases his talents with exclusive five-course degustations.

Co-owner of Italy’s famed Ristorante San Domenico, Marcatelli introduced the venture to New York City where it quickly was awarded three Michelin stars – the first Italian restaurant to do so – and his impressive Uovo-in-ravioli became an instant hit, being dubbed a “Try before you die” meal.

Not only has he cooked for countless celebs, but amongst those are Naomi Campbell – so we’re not saying you’ll get a supermodel bod from his creations, but we’re kinda saying get a supermodel bod from his creations. 

Tickets are selling fast, so book here for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the work of one of the world’s greatest chefs.
