Michelin star and 'burnt' aren't two words you'd want to hear in the same sentence, but in this instance, diners are in for a scorching treat.

In celebration of Bradley Cooper's new movie, Burnt, the 5-star The Langham, Melbourne are serving up an exclusive menu featuring two dishes from the mind of British Michelin-starred chef, restaurateur and chef consultant to the film, Marcus Wareing.

Using Chef Wareing's recipes from the film, the hotel's Aria Bar & Lounge is serving the two-course menu, which includes Herdwick lamb accompanied by a beetroot girolle and a mascarpone blood orange streusel.

This duo of dishes is available until Sunday, November 15 for $49 per person.

The Langham, Melbourne's pastry kitchen brigade has also created a trio of desserts inspired by Burnt.

For $29 per person, diners can enjoy a crème caramel macaron, chocolate crème brulée and mascarpone blood orange streusel teamed with a Burnt orange martini.

Burnt tells the story of a top chef (Cooper) who having destroyed his culinary career with drugs, looks to clean up his act and vie for the elusive three Michelin stars.

What's the connection between the movie and The Langham, Melbourne? Burnt was shot on location at The Langham, Melbourne's sister hotel, The Langham, London. The hotel's restaurant, The Roux at the Landau features prominently throughout the film.
