Special Cucina Contest: Ready, Steady, Cook!

The house lights are up, the oven is pre-heated, the kitchen is gleaming and the studio audience is stirring with excitement.  The announcer begins, the whole room is abuzz with clapping and cheering, then the camera pans to you as you begin preparing one of your to-die-for dishes while keeping the entire room captivated with your endless charm.  Your friends all say it, you’ve always known it…you should be the star of your own cooking show. And we’re sure if given the chance, you would leave Nigella Lawson and Rachel Ray in the dust.  But if the networks have somehow missed your messages and seem to have misplaced your audition tapes, Cucina, Hong Kong’s mouthwatering new open kitchen restaurant offers the next best thing…

Cucina boasts a show kitchen like you’ve never seen before.  With the atmosphere of a culinary theatre, it is the perfect place for interested foodies to watch chefs cook up a drama over every single sumptuous dish.  See the expression on the chef’s face as he puts the finishing touches on your pan seared scallops or the careful attention that is paid to each hand picked tomato for your Caprese salad.  The scent of your exquisite chocolate fondant emanating from the pastry oven will have your mouth watering with excitement before it evens arrives at the table.  Cocktails like the “Rose of Cucina” are given tender loving care as each fresh ingredient is shaken and stirred to perfection right before your eyes.  With the stunning Hong Kong skyline as a backdrop, your next meal at Cucina will be a mind-blowing performance and delectable sensation you won’t soon forget.  Get an exclusive taste of Cucina at the restaurant’s 1st Anniversary Party on Monday, December 8th, save the date!

For those of you who dream of being at the helm of a state-of-the-art show kitchen, now’s your chance.  On the afternoon of Sunday, December 7th, Cucina will open up their kitchen for the first time ever to non-professional chefs for a complimentary cooking class and tasting experience for 12 lucky Dim Sum & Then Some guests.
