Now whilst I bemoaned $495/head being too expensive, I was still mighty sad not to go to the Iron Chef dinner (because Iron Chef Sakai is my favourite). So imagine my delight to stumble upon this blog by Not Quite Nigella showing it all off!
She's delightfully transported by the food: "I feel myself babbling nonsensical phrases much like the Iron Chef judges like “The flavour is so complexly pleasing to my palate, I feel like I have enjoyed a profound moment”. I have a good nose and for the life of me, I cannot tell what is in it, all my tastebuds are telling me that you are indeed eating something straight from heaven that is unlike anything you’ve eaten before and you’d better find out where I can get some before before you have taste bud revolt on your tongue."
