Charlie Carrington is the chef and owner of Atlas Dining, a restaurant in Melbourne’s South Yarra that completely changes cuisine four times a year. The ambitious concept sees Charlie travel around the world for inspiration, then recreate his version of a cuisine for diners in his intimate restaurant. “It’s my lens on the food that I eat and enjoy,” he says. Charlie’s Atlas Weekly meal-box service is similarly globe-trotting, skilling up home cooks and exciting households with delicious easy-to-prepare dinners.

This is the first dish we did at Atlas Dining and maybe the dish that put us on the map. We take the flavours of Vietnamese pho and recreate them in a surprising and playful beef tartare. Rendered Wagyu fat is used in the dressing for the raw meat.
