Taste art on a plate from one of the World's Best Restaurants

Do you like your chefs with a bit of rock and roll swagger? Then get down to Sotheby's Contemporary Art Galleries this month, where Italian superstar chef Massimo Bottura - described by his peers as 'the Jimi Hendrix of Italian chefs' - will recreate his three-Michelin-starred Modena restaurant Osteria Francescana for Londoners.

Bottura (celebrating being voted number two in this year's World's 50 Best Restaurants awards, above) will feed guests a creative seven-course tasting menu that aims to marry the worlds of modern art and food on the plate. Dishes will range from a Damien Hirst-inspired beef fillet served with three vibrantly coloured sauces that will visually echo the artist’s spin paintings, to a dessert called ‘Oops! I Dropped the Lemon Tart’, which references Ai Weiwei’s 1995 work Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn.

Diners will also get a sneak peek of contemporary artworks that will be up for auction at Sotheby's in July - works by Hirst, Gerhard Richter, Lucio Fontana and more will decorate the pop-up dining room.

This exclusive event takes place on 27, 28 and 29 June. Tickets cost £250 including a welcome apéritif (matching wines cost £95 extra). To book your place, visit the Sotheby's website or email ofpopup@sothebys.com.

Book now for The Cinnamon Club's Wine & Spice dinners 2015

The Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen have always led the way in flying the flag for wines that can stand up to their elegantly spiced dishes. Over four courses, the group's skilled sommelier Laurent Chaniac introduces a series of fine wines from his cellars and explains just why they work so well with executive chef Vivek Singh's food.

This year's series of wine and spice dinners will concentrate on Old World wine regions, but with a few surprises. On 10 June, Cinnamon Kitchen will see some of its dishes paired with Loire wines (£60), while on 10 July, Greek wines will be the focus of a slap-up dinner at The Cinnamon Club (£90). Later in the year, on 23 September, Les Caves des Pyrènes will co-host a wine dinner at Cinnamon Kitchen, which will showcase wines from small producers, including natural wines (£60). The series will be rounded off on 16 October at The Cinnamon Club with a dinner celebrating game season, with each course paired with a Burgundy wine (£120).

Booking in advance is recommended. For more information and to book your place, visit The Cinnamon Club's website.

The wines are the stars this summer at Galvin at Windows

You know how at traditional wine dinners, it's the sommelier's job to find a wine that perfectly matches the chef's dishes? Well, this year, Mayfair restaurant Galvin at Windows will turn that philosophy on its head, with four wine dinners where the wines are the true stars.

And what wines they are. Each dinner will centre around a selection of wines from a specific producer, including Champagne houses Louis Roederer and Taittinger, Burgundy vineyard Domaine Faiveley, and Second Growth Bordeaux wine producer Pichon Longueville.

The winemakers themselves will attend the dinners, talking diners through the wines and answering questions about their production. Meanwhile, guests can tuck into a four-course meal, with dishes prepared by Galvin's chef Joo Won to bring out the full potential of each wine - and, of course, take in Galvin at Window's fabulous views.

This monthly event kicks off with a Taittinger wine dinner on 12 May (£125), followed by Domaine Faiveley on 2 June (£125), Pichon Longueville on 7 July (£125) and Louis Roederer on 23 September (£150). Each event starts with a canapé reception. For more information or to book tickets, email reservations@galvinatwindows.com or call 020 7208 4021.
