[Sponsored] Fire up at this flamin' cooking demonstration and five-course dinner for Melbourne Food and Wine Festival

As a part of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Palermo chef Oliver Gould will be hosting a fiery culinary showcase. 

For one night only, Gould will be illustrating the fine art of cooking with fire on Wednesday March 21. It'll begin with cooking a whole beast over charcoal fire, with Gould also showing off other fire cooking techniques, including a fire pit carving demonstration. Using the embers and flames from a charcoal pit renders the meat extra succulent, and throughout the evening Gould will pass on techniques and tips he's learned during his years taming the asado flames. 

It's all going down in Argentinian grill house Palermo. Throughout the evening, guests can imbibe on drinks from the flame garnished and smoke-infused cocktail menu that's been created to complement the slow-cooked meats. You'll also get to tuck into a five-course meal cooked straight from the asado or grilled on the parrilla, so expect plenty of smoky, rustic flavours.

Also keep your eye out for Fiesta del Amigo: A Celebration of Che, which takes place at sister restaurant San Telmo during the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. The five-course lunch will trot through dishes that celebrate Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela, taking place on March 24.
