Roles were reversed as the chefs downed tools and let the UK’s top food critics take over the kitchen at Action Against Hunger’s Too Many Critics.
The Merchant’s Tavern provided the backdrop for the 10th Too Many Critics event where food writers – led by Bill Knott and Charles Campion – were challenged to swap pens for pans and prepare a meal for some of London’s top chefs, restaurateurs and food industry professionals.
Under the watchful eye of Michelin starred chef Angela Hartnett, the team cooked a feast including a starter of chilled pea and bacon soup, roast chicken with lemon and tarragon for the main course and a gooseberry fool to finish.
After dinner, guests were invited to bid on a selection of incredible prizes during an auction in aid of Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian organisation which is committed to ending child hunger and providing families with sustainable access to safe water and good nutrition. In total, the event raised over £33,500 for the charity!
