SYDNEY— Australian chef Neil Perry has announced the all-star line-up for his annual "Ultimate" charity dinner in September: Heston Blumenthal, Thomas Keller, Grant Achatz, Ben Shewry, and Brett Graham. The event raises funds for the Starlight Children's Foundation; since the dinner's inception in 2003, they've raised more than $1 million for charity. [Fine Dining Lovers]
