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 throwdown@ruthschris.ae 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 www.ruthschris.ae
