Fred’s cosy, rustic setting combines the allure of flame-cooking, seasonal produce, and London cool with a Sydney farm-to-table favourite.

Max Coen of Dorian, a Notting Hill hotspot, collaborates with Ben Greeno, executive chef of Paddington icon Fred’s, for a one-of-a-kind four-course dinner series. This powerful yet basic meal showcases Max’s mastery of wood-fired flavors and single-ingredient emphasis, as well as Ben’s refined simplicity. The end product is a celebration of high-quality ingredients, precise procedures, and the delight of coming together for a delicious, honest dinner. All set in Fred’s inviting setting, which mixes the homey warmth of a farmhouse with a fine-dining edge.

Max brings extensive experience and ambition to the pans at two-hatted Fred’s. His outstanding CV includes two Michelin-starred London restaurants, Ikoyi and Kitchen Table, and three-starred Frantzén in Stockholm.When combined with Ben’s knack for comfort and elegance, this salute to low intervention cooking and the greatest NSW produce is not to be missed.

The Vivid Chef Series celebrates cooperation and fusion, two factors that contribute to Sydney’s vibrant and diverse food scene.

In a series of exceptional dinners, two top chefs, one cutting-edge international and one local Sydney icon, collaborate to create a genuinely unique and delectable feast.

Each chef couple will develop a one-of-a-kind cuisine that showcases the greatest NSW food and suppliers.

This is more than just a celebration of culinary creativity; it is also an example of the strength and beauty of diversity and unity through food. Join us as we make new relationships and attempt something new together.
