    "Preparation of the extravaganza is in the hands of six chefs with three Michelin stars apiece who have also jetted in from their restaurants, along with the Food Network's Sandra Lee, star of Semi-Homemade Cooking.

    Alain Soliveres, of Paris's Taillevent, will open with crème brûlée of foie gras with Tonga beans, while Antoine Westermann, the chef-proprietor of Restaurant Buerehiesel, in Strasbourg, France, follows with tartar of Kobe beef with Imperial Beluga caviar and Belons oyster. Sandra Lee wraps things up with banana pudding bites and a Kwanzaa cake."

          I would pay money to see a podcast of Sandra Lee in the kitchen with the other Three Star Chefs.

          "Tonga bean" is a typo for tonka bean.

          "Alain Soliveres, of Paris's Taillevent, will open with crème brûlée of foie gras with Tonga beans...."

          The Guardian is a respectable publication. This article will perpetuate this error.

            As a child, I recall that The Guardian was referred to as "The Grauniad" in light of the frequent spelling mistakes it contained.
