    Do you want to dine in RTÉ's "The Restaurant"?

    Are you a foodie who loves to eat out?

    Do you know your chilli from your cayenne?

    Then we want you!

    We would like to invite any interested members of Irish food blogs to apply to be a diner on our upcoming series.

    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.
    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.

    Dining at 'The Restaurant' involves becoming a 'critic' for the
    evening. We need YOU, as our diners, to get involved in the experience
    and to voice your opinions on the food and wine being served to you.

    Vision Independent Productions are looking for diners for the series
    which will be filming on location in The Wineport Lodge in Athlone
    this September/October, so if you think you're up to the challenge of
    critiquing the menu the mystery "chef" whips up in the kitchen, we
    want to hear from you.

    For more information or to get involved please contact:

    Telephone – 01 864 1444
    Mobile – 085 77 080 52
    Email – rte1therestaurant@eircom.net

    Don't forget to include your contact details – Name, address, phone
    number and tell us a little about yourself and your interest cooking
    and dining.
