A trip to Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is always an experience - exceptional collection of modern art and always-interesting exhibitions aside, the harbour-side locale and rooftop café make it a gallery worth making a day out of. On October 7, you can linger a little longer thanks to Taste of Art, a one-off culinary event taking place right in the gallery.

Fresh Catering executive chef Geoff Haviland (who hails from Michelin-star restaurants including the UK's two-star L'Ortolan and Germany's two-star The Schweizer Stub) is curating a three-course menu for the evening, to be paired with wine from the new Bimbadgen MCA Wine Series XV - this year the bottles feature works by Melbourne-based artists Laith McGregor and Aleks Danko, whose retrospective exhibition My Fellow Aus-Tra-Aliens is currently on show.

The night isn't just about fine dining though - guests will also be taken on a private tour of the MCA Collection, so they can judge for themselves where the artistic genius lies: in the paintings or on the plate. We're guessing both.

Taste of Art is a Good Food Month event; tickets cost $200 per person and are available here: tickets.mca.com.au.
