RTE’s “The Restaurant” looking for diners
The Restaurant is back for its seventh series on RTÉ One. In each episode a ‘celebrity’ head chef will take on the culinary challenge to produce a top class, three course meal with two value-for-money wines (which Tom Doorly seems to guess wrong most of the time!).
The celebrities who become chefs for a night will be people who have a passion for food and dining. The programme will give the “chef” the opportunity to “go pro” for one night and serve up a real restaurant meal.
The resident critics are Tom Doorley and Paolo Tullio, with one other special guest critic each week. The identity of the “mystery chef” will remain secret to all in “The Restaurant” until after the meal. Before the chef leaves the kitchen the critics will decide whether the meal is worth a star rating of between one and five. When the celebrity chef’s identity is revealed they sit down with critics to find out how they fared.
Diners at the restaurant
Dining at ‘The Restaurant’ involves becoming a ‘critic’ for the evening. So, RTE need you to get involved in the experience and to voice your opinions on the food and wine being served to you.
