Grab Your Fork is pleased to be involved with two three four prizes this year:

A spot in the Autumn Menu kaiseki cooking class
run by Kei's Kitchen in April 2008 (valued at AU$120)
Prize code: AP36

Join the hands-on kaiseki cooking class at Kei's Kitchen, recently featured on SBS's Food Safari and attended and blogged by Grab Your Fork. Kei's Kitchen is offering a spot on their Autumn menu kaiseki which is usually the most elaborate kaiseki menu of the year. Date will either be April 12 or April 13th 2008.


Global 7-piece Synergy knife block set (valued at AU$610)
Prize code: AP35

Described as a blend of Italian design, German durability and Japanese precision, Global knives are a favourite with professional chefs. The Synergy 7-piece set contains: 8cm paring knife, 11cm utility knife, 13cm cooks knife, 14cm vegetable knife, 20cm cooks knife and a 22cm bread knife housed in a stylish knife block. Donated by the kind folk at Kitchen Warehouse.

Shipping restrictions: Australia only

SYDNEY: $300 dining voucher to Perama
Prize Code: AP02

Enjoy the various courses of Greek through the ages at Perama, once again a SMH One-Hat restaurant. Journey from ancient Greece to the moorish flavours of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empire, and don't leave without trying their caramel baklava ice cream or olive oil ice cream.

Owner and head chef David Tsirekas will look after you like his own and I can personally vouch for the amazing silky texture of the bizarre-sounding but divine-tasting olive oil ice cream.


SYDNEY: $200 dinner voucher for two people to Ocean Room
Prize Code: AP01

Feast on modern coastal cuisine with Japanese and Mediterranean influences at Ocean Room whilst your eyes drink in the gorgeous views of the Sydney Opera House. Head chef Raita Noda insists on using only the freshest seafood - check out his amazing wall of fish tanks too!

For a sneak peek at the menu, check out the photos and post on my delicious dining experience.

    Hi! I gather I won the Perama dinner! I'm thrilled.Thank you for donating such a wonderful prize!
    How do I go about collecting? I haven't gotten a notification email; I'll email you separately, I suppose, and hope to hear back soon!
