KFC launches a fine dining experience complete with an elegant 11-course degustation menu. The fried chicken restaurant chain is offering this extraordinary service to customers at a restaurant in Sydney, Australia.

For the fancy 11-course menu, KFC teamed up with British chef Nelly Robinson who is also the owner of Sydney’s Nel restaurant, to develop the food selections, as per 7News. With his food expertise, he has been dubbed as Australia’s “Degustation King.”

KFC’s collaboration with the well-known chef to create a fine dining menu is said to be the world’s first, so customers will also make history if they are lucky to dine during the offering period. It should be noted that KFC’s 11-course will only be available for three nights.

“For the menu, I have taken 11 KFC dishes and reimagined how the flavors and textures come to life using my expertise in degustation menus to truly blow fans away,” Nelly said in a statement. “From Wicked Wings cooked on charcoal fires to edible stencil art of the Colonel’s face, we have crafted a high-end dining adventure. So, we can’t wait to see their reactions to each of the devilishly good dishes.”

KFC said that it has gone all out to make it a “magical moment” for its guests. The fast-food chain wants to create a memorable experience that customers will not forget.

“We are thrilled to be reinventing the idea of fine dining by bringing a fun and delicious degustation to Sydney,” KFC Australia’s chief marketing officer, Kristi Woolrych, said. “Our fans will experience KFC in ways they could never have imagined as they are taken on a world-first culinary journey that looks and tastes uniquely KFC.

Yahoo Lifestyle reported that KFC Australia’s 11-course degustation menu will be offered from April 1 to April 3 only. The menu will feature a selection of fares inspired by classic KFC food items and ingredients such as the supercharged wings, potato and gravy, Tongue Twister, Twister Sister, popcorn chicken, La Di Da Drumstick, and chocolate mousse.

To experience KFC’s degustation, people must book a seat and be required to register to a waitlist. Lucky customers will be contacted if they are able to get a spot at one of the degustation evenings.

The fine-dining runs from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and KFC’s 11-course fine dining with wines costs $75 per head. Diners will receive a call starting March 23, and the details, including the location and sitting, will be shared with guests after the confirmation of their reservation. Finally, KFC will be donating all the profits from this event to its charity partners such as Whitelion, ReachOut Australia, and The Black Dog Institute.
