Jiro Dreams of Sushi – Ticket giveaway!

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

I have to admit, I’m just but a lowly office worker, eating and dreaming of an escape – this blog serves as my little time out of my life where I can fantasise that I work with food!  So naturally, I totally admire people whose lives do revolve around eating, sleeping and breathing food.  There are so many food legends I admire – Peter Gilmore, Ferran Adria, Heston Blumenthal of course.  Not everyone has had a smooth ride but the common thread is dedication and perseverance.  And so enter Jiro.  A sushi master – the godfather of sashimi, revered by all who know him, with many desperately seeking to eat food that has been cooked under his watch.  So if you haven’t been so fortunate to experience his cuisine, there is now a film made about his passion – Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

Here is a link to the trailer to whet your appetite:

I have four double passes to give away to the first four people who comment on my facebook page about who their food idol is! Note, the passes are only valid at Chauvel Cinema, Palace Centro, Palace Nova Eastend, Cinema Paradiso or Greater Union Manuka.  Entry is open to Australian residents.  FoodieChat has sole discretion to determine the winners, which will be the first four comments following the post titled “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”.

Sydney Morning Herald 2011 Good Food Guide Awards

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Good Living today released details of  this year’s winners and the hatted restaurants in the 2011 Good Food Guide.  It seems that eating well doesn’t necessarily mean poshy waiters, starchy tablecloths and $100 bottles of wine.  This year, a number of new casual style eateries were rewarded for their simple, honest food, including Cafe Sopra, and Golden Century.   Sad to see Tetsuya’s lose a star, but having been there twice, I know that it won’t even impact upon it at all, as Tetsuya has a very loyal clientele base.  There you go, start planning your 2011 eating :)
