We turn the tables on restaurant critics in Manchester
For one night only critics dropped their pens and picked up their pans to feed a whole restaurant of the North West's best chefs and restaurateurs
Mar 17 2015
In association with Northern Restaurant and Bar this year's fundraiser was held at newly opened Hawksmoor in Spinningfields.
This year’s host was BBC food and wine presenter Nigel Barden, who also conducted the live auction. Both national and regional food critics put their skills to the test, including Tim Hayward (Financial Times), Andy Cronshaw (Manchester Evening News), Mark “Gordo” Garner (Manchester Confidential), Ruth Allan (Taste of Manchester) and Janine Ratcliffe (Olive Magazine).
Chefs judging the critics included Paul Askew (The Art School Restaurant), Frances Atkins (The Yorke Arms), Mary-Ellen McTague, Aiden Byrne (Manchester House) and Stosie Madi (Parkers Arms).
