Masterchef All Stars – There Is Going To Be A Pop Up Restaurant

Masterchef All Stars looks like it has an innovative twist this year with a pop up restaurant occurring in Sydney prior to the Olympics.

According to TV Tonight the restaurant will be open for three weeks from the 3 July in the forecourt of St Mary’s Cathedral.

TV Tonight writes:

It will feature 3 course fine-dining from Julie Goodwin, Justine Schofield, Adam Liaw (who hasn’t been named as part of the All Stars season) and Hayden Quinn plus guest chefs Justin North, Kylie Kwong, Colin Fassnidge, Martin Boetz, Giovanni Pilu, Adam D’Sylva, Vincent Gadan and Christine Mansfield.

Each seating runs for around 2 hours and tickets will be around $100 per head plus drinks.

The SMH also states the funds raised will be going to charity OzHarvest, and there will be no filming there.

It will be a two story restaurant designed by Kelvin Ho.

Am I tempted to go? Well yes and no. Is it event dining or a gimmick? But then so are those ice vodka bars where you go for a short time pay a lot for vodka in a chilly environment but it is entertaining.

If you are interested bookings will commence on the Masterchef website on the 20 June. Would be tempted to go? And who would you like to be in the kitchen the night you were there?

For $100 a pop, I am not sure I want to go. Yes it is for charity but there are lots of other charity dinners around.

The timing is not good for and I don’t think I am well enough to go.

It will need to be a pop-out restaurant for J Goodwin to fit in there.

littlepetal – Julia could use the whole Domain or Hyde Park across the road.

And J Goodwin can get some exercise thrown in as well by serving the food herself. Walking to and from the Domain or Hyde Park to the Cathedral will do her some good.

Saw the promo for Sun episode and I thought Kate is catching up to J Goodwin.
