After a delicious Season 1, One Night Stand Chef (ONSC) is back for a new run at Café Zoe. This fun culinary series invites and auditions amateur chefs to work with Zoe’s Chef Viraf in the kitchen for one night only. You get to create your own Very Specials Menu and watch customers eat a meal cooked by you.

You must be 18 years of age; must not currently work in a professional kitchen. You have to submit a quick presentation about you and why you want to participate, backed by a Café Zoe-style 5 dish menu that comprises two appetisers, two mains and two courses (choice of starter/main/dessert).

Good luck! We hope it’s love at first bite.
