Win a pasta class at Alio Restaurant!

Posted on June 2, 2010

UPDATE: This competition is now closed.

The only thing is – I’ll be there too. Still want to win? Haha!

Alio Restaurant is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this June and Head Chef and owner Ashley Hughes is hosting a limited number of pasta-making masterclasses Рwhich you could be lucky enough to attend.

I’ve been given two places, and instead of taking one of my mates, I’d like to take one of you – my lovely readers!

During the class we’ll get to watch Ashley make two of his signature dishes and then we’ll get to make two different types of pasta. Afterwards (this is the best part) we get to eat it all.

All you have to do is complete two simple tasks to enter…

UPDATE: This competition is now closed.

That’s me and ‘Tets’ –¬† or Tetsuya Wakuda for those who haven’t met him! He’s a world-famous chef and owner of the equally world-famous restaurant Tetsuya’s in Sydney.

Last week I had the privilege of being invited to attend one of his extremely coveted Masterclasses (he only does 12 a year!). I have to immediately give a big warm thank you to Electrolux, Open Haus PR (especially Nicole) and of course, Tetsuya for inviting me. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime, dream experience.

Guess what? You can win a chance to do it too!

Don’t rub your eyes, you read that right. Fig & Cherry and Electrolux are giving you the chance to attend an exclusive Masterclass with Tetsuya. Competition details are at the end of this post… Don’t want to wait? ENTER NOW!

For those of you who can wait, let me tell you about the evening… (more…)
