Iron Chef coming to Sydney

Iron Chef French, Hiroyuki Sakai, is coming to Sydney!

Sakai will perform a tag-team cook-off with Galileo's Chef Harunobu Inukai in front of a dining audience. As diners sup on seven courses of Japanese-French cuisine with matching wines, Sakai and Inukai will recreate the meals with large screens relaying all the action from the kitchen. (Rumour has it that Tetsuya was devastated that he missed out on being chosen)

Joanna Savill (from The Food Lovers' Guide to Australia) will compere the evening in what will be a dream dinner date for every die-hard Iron Chef fan in Sydney.

Alas it is likely to remain a dream for most. At $450 a head, this is one event you will definitely have to fork out for.

Dinners start at 6.30pm on 12th, 13th and 14th October, 2005 at The Observatory Hotel, 89-113 Kent Street Sydney.

Cost is $450 per person including welcome cocktail, 7-course dinner and the sommelier's selection of wines.

Bookings on (02) 8248 5200.

More details here, here and here.

To the PR machine responsible for this event, I humbly offer my tastebuds and enthusiasm in exchange for a free ticket... Please? Pretty please?

    Hi Augustusgloop - $450 a head! I haven't seen the programme for ages, is that still on in Japan? I guess there are lots of Japanese chefs who want to work in Australia...
