Take your taste buds on a journey to Milan. Join acclaimed chef Domenico De Marco for a four course dinner Milanese-style at his new locavore dining destination 'Locale @ The Grande' in the village of Hepburn Springs. Strictly limited seats.

'Locale' has recently opened at The Grande Hotel, a place where quirky old-world character meets modern decor, in spectacular forest surrounds and near to the popular Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa.

Their slow-cooked authentic Italian cuisine with beautifully realised flavours and textures is made with devotion by chef and partner Domenico De Marco. His culinary roots and abiding passion for house-made everything, including freshly baked breads, pastas and soups, house-cured meats, mozzarella, baked ricotta, and freshly churned gelato are fully embraced.

Supplied with the amazing fresh produce of the Central Highlands, Domenico cooks and coaxes this locavore fare into a truly Italian experience of food and dining - luscious, relaxed and convivial.

Originating from near Bologna in Italy, Domenico has had a stellar career in European Michelin starred restaurants, guided by renowned chefs including Luca Marchini, Piergiorgio Parini and Andrea Accordi. In Australia, Domenico has worked with chefs Luke Mangan and Neil Perry and in his own highly regarded Melbourne restaurant.
