As tipped earlier this week, Rockpool’s Neil Perry and Melbourne Restaurateur Guy Grossi will become two of the Iron Chef experts, when the show premieres on Seven.
The third will be Bennelong’s Guillaume Brahimi.
The show is hoped to capitalise on culinary interest driven by MasterChef‘s amateur cooks.
“This engages the industry on a higher level. It is professional versus professional,” he told the Herald Sun.
“Giving professional chefs the chance to come on TV will allow Australia to see the great diversity this country has in professional cooking.”
The international format to be produced by Shine Australia pits Grossi, Perry and Brahimi against up-and-coming professional cooks to create four unique dishes in an hour.
It will be filmed in Melbourne.
