Vegas Uncork’d launches 12th year with Saber Off Extravaganza at The Park

Masaharu Morimoto is a world-famous chef and restaurateur best-known as a dominant force on the incredibly intense cooking competition show “Iron Chef.” To say he’s accustomed to the spotlight would be a bit of an understatement.

“I’m never very nervous, if it’s a live show or interview on TV or even singing,” he said last week from inside his Japanese restaurant at the MGM Grand. “I’ve done a demonstration of butchering a big tuna in front of 3,000 people. But this time, for Vegas Uncork’d, I’m doing the saber off and I’m not good. I’ve been practicing. There’s going to be a lot of media plus a lot of famous chefs behind me,” he said with a laugh and a sarcastic faux-scream of anxiousness.

The 12th Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit event weekend is back on the Strip this week and the traditional kickoff has one of many celebrity chefs sabering the top off a bottle of Champagne. Morimoto, who opened his first Las Vegas restaurant in 2016, does the honors this year when one of Las Vegas’ biggest culinary events gets started May 10 at 1 p.m. at The Park, located between Las Vegas Boulevard and T-Mobile Arena.

Why Tina Brown’s Summit Is The Davos Of Feminism

Where can you go to see Hillary Clinton moderate a debate on the worrying rise of “strong men” world leaders, hear Viola Davis speak about growing up in poverty and ending up on Hollywood’s A-list, or find out how the charismatic 11-year-old activist Naomi Wadler, and her Gen-Z cohort, want to change the world? Tina Brown’s Women In The World summit kicks off in New York today and promises three days of dynamic debate, groundbreaking conversation and inspiring keynote speakers (Meryl Streep, Christine Lagarde and Queen Rania of Jordan have all appeared in previous years).

The summit is put together by Brown, the legendary magazine editor who helmed Tatler in the ’80s, then revitalised Vanity Fair before going to The New Yorker. Her aim was to give voice to the many incredible, impassioned, campaigning women she met in the human rights arena.
