Your weekly bites of foodie news from South Bank and beyond…

It’s official…we have the best steaks in the world…
Judges at the first World Steak Challenge have crowned an Aussie steak the best in the world! (Tell us something we don’t know!) The Challenge saw steaks from the likes of America, Uruguay, and the United Kingdom go head to head for the title. However, it was the Aussie-based Warmoll family’s Jack’s Creek Wagyu that took out the overall award.

Heston comes to Melbourne…
Well, Dinner by Heston that is! The mad gastronomic inventor himself, Heston Blumenthal, has opened up shop in Melbourne’s Crown casino this week. The restaurant is the first permanent fixture for Heston outside of the UK and will feature ‘Australian elements’ in its extravagant dishes such as kangaroo tail and a lamington dessert.

The best restaurant in the world pops up in Australia…for a price…
$465. That’s how much you will pay for the a meal at the Australian pop-up of Noma, the famous two Michelin star restaurant in Copenhagen.  Regularly topping the World’s Best Restaurant List, the Australian branch will be located at Barangaroo in Sydney. If you would like to score yourself a seat, bookings will open at 10am AEDT on Friday October 30th.

New Film takes you behind the Kitchen doors…
If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the closed kitchen doors at a top restaurant, then we suggest you go see Burnt which hits cinemas today! The film tells the story of Adam Jones, a rockstar chef with a dark past trying to earn the food world’s coveted three-star Michelin rating. And to get into character, Cooper studied the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White so you know this movie’s going to bring the dra-ma and #foodporn!
