On Sunday 4th March, a host of Bristol’s renowned food critics and writers will gallantly swap pens for pans to cook a feast for a room full of chefs and guests, raising vital funds for Action Against Hunger.

Money raised from the event will be critical in supporting our work in nearly 50 countries worldwide, enabling malnourished children to regain their health and fulfil their potential.

Over the years, ‘Too Many Critics’ - first staged in London in 2001, and now with spin-off events in Manchester and Brighton - has introduced dozens of food writers to the heat of a professional kitchen. Now Bambalan, on Colston Avenue, will host Bristol’s inaugural ‘Too Many Critics’.

Normally found on the other side of the kitchen pass, the critics and writers taking part will be:

Andy Clarke -Food TV producer, award judge, One4TheTable and Crumbs contributor
Mark Taylor - Bristol Post, Western Daily Press, olive magazine
Jessica Carter – Crumbs Magazine
Martin Booth - Bristol24/7
Bill Knott - Financial Times and Action Against Hunger ambassador

Each critic will each take charge of a course, cooking and serving it to a room of highly critical diners.

The menu has been developed with the help of Todd Francis (Executive Chef of the Hyde & Co group) and food awards judge (and previous South West Chef of the Year winner) Steve Ashworth, with guests having the chance to rate each critic’s dish. The most highly-rated critic will win a bottle of Champagne; the rest receiving wooden spoons before slinking back into the kitchen to finish their washing up.

Tickets for the event are £45 and include a cocktail on arrival, a four-course, Middle Eastern-themed feast, and entertainment throughout the evening. Buy your tickets below!
