Sydney Opera House will stage the epic Iron Chef All Stars charity dinner on 2 August where four original Iron Chefs—Rokusaburo Michiba (Japanese), Hiroyuki Sakai (French), Kenichi Chen (Chinese) and Masahiko Kobe (Italian)—will reunite on stage for the first time since the FujiTV program ended in 1997. They will be joined by 2 Michelin Star Kentaro Chen and Asia’s Top Pastry Chef Janice Wong, to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime gastronomic experience for 480 charitable diners.
Joining these six illustrious chefs will be four culinary advisors: Melbourne-based Chef Ikuei Arakane (Kinsan), who is known for modern Japanese creations during his time at Taxi Dining Room; Executive Chef Hal Yamashita, master of Nouvelle Japanese cuisine; Iron Chef Australia Mark Normoyle, Executive Chef of RACV City Club; and Executive Chef Ryo Kitahara, who creates modern Japanese fare in Melbourne.
Proceeds from the dinner will go towards Opportunity International Australia, to help alleviate poverty in Asia.
