Too Many Critics London

We are thrilled to announce that our Too Many Critics event will be returning to London on Sunday 5th June 2016. Hosted by food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden (BBC Radio 2), this year’s event will be held at Ceviche Old St. Tickets are available to purchase now!

Ceviche Old St is a new restaurant house in the legendary Alexandra Trust Dining Rooms, now lovingly restored to its former glory. Their menu is inspired by the coast, Andes and Amazon of Peru, with influences including Peru’s criolla, nikkkei and chifa cuisines.

Some of the country’s top restaurant critics will experience life on the other side of the pass – donning chef whites to prepare exclusive dishes featuring Peruvian superfood ingredients, fish, meat and vegetarian options.
 

This year guests will be welcomed with a Champagne Taittinger reception, before the critics are put through their paces to prepare an exclusive dinner. This year’s critics include Bill Knott (The FT’s How to Spend It), Lisa Markwell (Former Editor, The Independent on Sunday), Jay Rayner (The Observer), Rebecca Woollard (Delicious Magazine).

Guests will then have the opportunity to bid on a host of exclusive and money-can’t-buy experiences and items in our Live and Silent Auctions.

All funds raised on the night will go towards our work to help provide malnourished children with healthier futures.

Thanks to Action Against Hunger, I've seen first-hand how the money we raise in the UK transforms the lives of children who live thousands of miles away. We are all global citizens now, and it really is within our power to end child hunger in our lifetimes. I think future generations will hold us accountable if we don't grasp that chance.
