Get ready for the cooking event of the year

Too Many Critics

Action Against Hunger announces first 'Too Many Critics' fundraiser in Bristol

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

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, Andy Clarke (food TV producer, award judge, One4TheTable and Crumbs contributor), Mark Taylor (Bristol Post, West- ern Daily Press, olive magazine), Jessica Carter (Crumbs), Martin Booth (Bristol24/7), and Action Against Hunger ambassador Bill Knott (Financial Times), will each take charge of a course, cooking and serving it to a room of highly critical diners.

The menu will be 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, priced at £45, are available to purchase through Wriggle from this morning, with all profits going to Action Against Hunger, world leaders in tackling child malnutrition.

The price includes a cocktail on arrival, a four-course, Middle Eastern-themed feast, and entertainment throughout the evening. Expect fun, games and the usual raucous-ness attached to a Bambalan shindig.

6pm arrival for a 6.30pm start: please state any dietary requirements when booking, and please check social media for further updates:
