It's fair to say Nobu Matsuhisha has achieved a lot in his long and distinguished career. As the founder and driving force behind the iconic Nobu brand – which encompasses restaurants around the world as well as luxurious hotels, too – he's been at the top of the food scene for decades, pushing the boundaries of what can be done with authentic Japanese food and hospitality.

That's why, when he and the executive chefs from seven Nobu locations around world roll into town, getting a ticket isn't easy. But that's where we come in: we've got two exclusive tickets to The World of Nobu – a food festival that showcases recipes from across the Nobu group, hosted at Nobu Hotel London Shoreditch on 23 November. It'll also be the stage for the big reveal of his latest cookbook – 17 years after his first, Nobu: The Cookbook, hit shelves.

The winner will have the chance to indulge in 12 exclusive Nobu bites, four refreshing drinks, and an exclusive first-look copy of The World of Nobu cookbook signed by the chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself.

To enter, just answer a simple question.

The question is: What was the name of Nobu Matsuhisa’s first cookbook?
