MORE than £23,000 was raised for Action Against Hunger by last year’s Too Many Critics dinner, held at 20 Stories, all monies going to help save the lives of malnourished children in 50 countries worldwide.
The 2019 event, at Manchester Hall newcomer Dishoom on Monday, March 18 will aim to surpass that sum. The formula remained the same – critics’ dishes cooked on the night being judged by some of the north’s best chefs. Tickets for this hugely popular and worth event, held in association with Northern Restaurant & Bar 2019 are on sale now here.
Assembling once again will be the five brave Manchester foodie folk pictured below (Emily Heward of the Manchester Evening News; Matt White, Manchester Fodder; Taste of Manchester’s own Neil Sowerby; Louise Rhind-Tutt, I Love Manchester; and Ruth Allan, Manchester Wire),
They will be joined in the Dishoom kitchens by Mark ‘Gordo’ Garner (Manchester Confidential), Bill Knott (Financial Times, Restaurant Magazine) and Joe Warwick (author Where Chefs Eat).
Their task? To construct their own version of an Indian dish to set before an exclusve dinner attended by some of the hospitality industry’s finest. And what a setting in the Grade II listed former Freemasons Hall on Bridge Street.
Dishoom’s reputation in both London and Edinburg has been built on the quality of their lovingly curated menu of Bombay comfort food and award-winning drinks e but also the attention to detail in their beautiful fit-outs.
This year, guests will be welcomed with a Champagne Taittinger reception, before the critics are put through their paces to create delicious fare curated by Dishoom's head-chef, Naved Nasir.
Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on a host of exclusive experiences and items in our Live and Silent Auctions.
Too Many Critics, Monday March 18, 6pm-11.30pm. Dishoom, 32 Bridge Street, Manchester, M3 3BT. Tickets £78.38 inc booking fee.
