Manchester Art Prints Supporting Action Against Hunger
This year, we are proud to donate an artwork from our catalog, a framed print of Manchester by Lucy Burgess, to help Action Against Hunger in its worldwide attempts to raise funds to fight hunger and poverty. The charity is hosting its annual Too Many Critics event in Manchester on March 18th 2019, where a team of restaurant critics and food writers will swap their pens for pans to create a delicious feast for guests. Hosted by food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden (BBC Radio 2), this year’s event will be held at Dishoom, one of Manchester’s newest and most eagerly anticipated restaurants and will include a silent auction. All funds raised will go towards providing malnourished children with healthier futures in nearly 50 countries worldwide.
“We are thrilled to announce that, in association with Northern Restaurant & Bar 2019, our Too Many Critics event will be returning to Manchester on Monday 18th March 2019. This year’s event will be held at the recently opened Dishoom Manchester, located in the historic former Freemasons Hall on Bridge Street. Dishoom serves a lovingly curated menu of Bombay comfort food and award-winning drinks in beautiful restaurants with unique stories – everything Dishoom does shares its love for Bombay’s culture, heritage and people, and everyone is welcomed with warmth.
At Too Many Critics Manchester, we will be turning the tables on some of the country’s top restaurant critics and food writers and putting them in the hot-seat for once, asking them to draw on their collective dining experiences to prepare an exclusive dinner to be judged by guests, including some of the North’s finest chefs and restaurateurs.
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. This year’s critics include Bill Knott (Financial Times, Restaurant Magazine), Louise Rhind-Tutt (I Love Manchester, i News), Matt White (Taste Of Manchester, Fodder), Neil Sowerby (Taste of Manchester), Emily Heward (Manchester Evening News), Ruth Allan (Manchester Wire), and Simon Binns (LADbible).
Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on a host of exclusive experiences and items in our Live and Silent Auctions.
All funds raised on the night will go towards our work to provide malnourished children with healthier futures in nearly 50 countries worldwide.”
