Red Spice Road’s Head Chef, Dylan McCormack, has a portfolio of novel, intriguing and delicious dishes he has been working on over the past year which he is eager to serve to you. Each dish will be his personal representation of Modern Asian cuisine in Melbourne and where he envisions it heading in 2017 and beyond. A showcase of Head Chef’s handpicked favourites over a bespoke menu: what he loves cooking and what he wants to eat, served over 9 dishes with  wine.
