Too Many Critics at Ceviche Old St
We're incredibly excited to welcome some of the country's top restaurant critics and chefs to Ceviche Old St for this year's Too Many Critics on Sunday 5th June. The premise of the event is simple – the tables will turn as a team of top restaurant critics will be dropping their pens and picking up a pan, as they find out what it’s like to be on the other side of the pass preparing an exclusive Peruvian style dinner for 120 guests.
We can’t wait for critics to cook our amazing menu, specially designed for the evening by Executive Chef Vitelio Reyes and founder and chef Martin Morales. They’ll also be shaking up perfect pisco sours, Peru’s national cocktail. Sitting comfortably in the restaurant will be a group of London's leading chefs who get a rare opportunity to pass judgement on these influential critics. The best part of it is, this 'payback' is all for a good cause, raising funds for Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian charity committed to ending child hunger.
This year’s critics include Lucas Hollweg (Food Writer), Bill Knott (The FT’s How to Spend It), Lisa Markwell (Former editor, The Independent on Sunday), Rose Prince (The Telegraph), Jay Rayner (The Observer) and Rebecca Woollard (Delicious Magazine).
Chefs judging the critics include Dan Doherty (Duck & Waffle), Neil Rankin (Smokehouse and Bad Egg), Francesco Mazzei (Sartoria), Shaun Searley (Quality Chophouse), Brad Mcdonald (The Lockhart and Shotgun BBQ), Pascal Aussignac (Club Gascon) and Hamish Brown (Roka).
This year’s host is food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden (BBC Radio 2), who will also be conducting a live auction on a host of exclusive and money-can’t-buy experiences and items.
Tickets are available here with all proceeds going to Action Against Hunger.
