Think you can cook a mean steak? It's time to prove it.

Ruth's Chris Steak House challenges you to a Throw Down. Create two courses; a shrimp starter and a steak main course - cooked for an independent judging panel - and prove whether you really do have what it takes to be up to the standard of Ruth's Chris Steak House - the only name in steak.

Send all applications (written or MP3) to by 21st October, 2009, telling us why you think that you should be the one of the lucky three finalists to be chosen to Throw Down at Ruth's Chris, with a head shot and contact details - and be in with a chance to win.

Prizes are your winning starter being included in the Ruth's Chris menu, a meal for two, fantastic kitchen appliances from Kenwood - as well as fame and fortune as being named the winner of the Ruth's Chris Steak House Throw Down 2009.

The Throw Down itself will take place on November 1 in the Private Dining Room of Ruth's Chris Steak House in The Monarch Dubai.

T&C for the competition are available on
