Guess whos coming for lunch this friday in Marysville?

The Tf's just found out some exciting news....

"Marysville's Worlds Longest lunch team are very proud to announce we have two celebrities attending this weeks lunch.

As you would know from our previous notices Garry Lyon is attending and so many people have brought tickets just to be able to shake his hand and get their napkins signed!!

and just announced hot off the press George Calombaris is also attending our lunch.

For those who are saying okay who is George? The name seems familiar!! is he on TV? As soon as we mention: masterchef, junior master chef, the fiery and very passionate Greek chef...you will know..

background:

"George has been awarded more accolades for his work than most receive in a lifetime, and this exuberant chef is still just 31 years of age. George's molecular gastronomy has seen him become a much talked about chef in the international cooking circuit. In 2004, the Global Food and Wine Magazine voted George one of the Top 40 Chefs of Influence."

Some of the comments about George....
“Calombaris has packed a lot into his career… he’s a technician. And like any artist, all that background plays its part here within TPC’s open kitchen. But it is shaken into a rather refined emulsion with his Greekness.” John Lethlean, Epicure, The Age
“(Calombaris' food) is whimsical and wonderful. Whatever, wherever the inspiration or drive, this young man just loves to cook, using top ingredients to charm, woo and wow diners. It's a gift.” Sally Lewis, The Age Good Food Guide Editor
“A meaty slab of swordfish atop a mound of beetroot tzatziki, tastes like a piece of Corfu sunshine. Only I never had food this good in Corfu.” Jane Hutchinson, The Sunday Magazine, The Herald-Sun
“What he’s done for pride in Greek flavours and ingredients at his hotter-than-hot Press Club is immeasurable.” The Age Melbourne Magazine
“One of the most exciting restaurants to open in Melbourne this decade – a new sort of restaurant for the city and maybe the world.” John Lethlean, Epicure, The Age
“It is, however, warm and clubby, though the food beats anything served in a club of which I have ever been a member.” Bob Hart, The Herald-Sun November 2006
