Cooking Fever App: Live Event, Sydney

Feeling a tad bored with the whole Sydney foodie scene (well, that's impossible).

But if you are, a host of Aussie celebrity cooks will be serving Sydneysiders at a unique pop up arcade inspired restaurant very shortly.

In a world first, food lovers nationwide can grab a free gourmet meal and step inside an arcade app-inspired restaurant.

I know, stay with me here!

On Sunday January 31, four of Australia’s most loved celebrity cooks will battle it out at Manly beach to bring the Cooking Fever app, a popular time-management game, to life.

Popular celebrity cooks staffing the restaurant at the Cooking Fever Life Event on the
beachfront of Manly Corso include:

Australia’s first-ever MasterChef winner JULIE GOODWIN
2012 MasterChef All Stars winner CALLUM HANN
MasterChef 2014 winner BRENT OWENS
MasterChef favourite and Everyday Gourmet JUSTINE SCHOFIELD

The cooks will compete against each other in a real life version of COOKING FEVER, re-enacting the fast paced time-management game and ensuring they keep all their customers satisfied. 

And, the search is on to find four restaurant managers (no hospitality experience required) staffed by the celebrity cooks. Aussie COOKING FEVER fans can win the ultimate prize – they will be flown to Sydney to team up with a celebrity cook and 'control' them in the food making process at the unique pop up restaurant. Just like in the game, the food can’t be served unless someone is in control. And it could be you!

And now, we have a recipe from the fab Justine Schofield:

'My dream burger'

Says Justine: "I definitely classify myself as a burger connoisseur. If I could I would eat everyday! Well almost. Hahaha.

"For me a burger must include two types of sauces, the bun should be soft and ideally not brioche. The meat must be of the best quality and cheese is must."

Makes: six

Prep: 10 minutes Cook:  10-15 minutes

1kg minced beef (the best quality you can afford that still has a little fat or ask your butcher to mince you some chuck steak)

6 baby cos lettuce leaves

6 slices of canned beetroot (optional)

1 large tomato sliced in to 6 rounds

6 slices good quality melting cheese

5 tbs. whole egg mayonnaise

5 tbs. tomato sauce

4 tbs. American mustard

2 large pickles sliced into thin rounds

6 very soft burger buns

Salt and pepper

1 tbs. olive oil

Place the cold mince straight from the fridge into a bowl and season with generously with salt and pepper. Divide into 6 even balls and flatten out between baking paper to make 6 even patties.

Pre heat the grill element in the oven. Split the burger buns in half and place on a tray ready to toast.

Heat a large pan (or barbeque) to medium high heat.  Add a little oil and grill the burgers on each side for 2 minutes or to your liking. In the last 30 seconds add the cheese to the meat so it starts to melt.

To assemble the burgers: toast the buns under the grill. Add a dollop of each sauce on the top and base of the bun. Add the burger patty then the pickles, lettuce, beetroot and tomato slices.

The 2014 MasterChef winner’s passion for food started when he was just 16. He loved to watch and follow the world’s iconic chefs but, the road to a culinary career wasn’t exactly conventional for Brent. Before entering and winning MasterChef, Brent’s trade was bobcat driver! However, this keen sportsman’s cooking flair, inventiveness and personality endeared him to the nation’s audiences and he was crowned the Series 6 MasterChef winner! Since his win, Brent has collaborated with a range of media and businesses and his food career has really taken off! He’s cooked meals in India, and presented at numerous local and international events including the South African Good Food and Wine Show in 2015. His recipe collection Dig In! has been published recently through Hardie Grant.
