Dragons' Den judge to be guest at ‘Too many critics' charity event

Ten of the nation's best known food critics must impress one of BBC TV's Dragons as well as a who's who of stars from hospitality at the "Too Many Critics" dinner later this month.

Deborah Meaden, one of the judges from hit TV series Dragons' Den, has been confirmed as a guest at the dinner, which forms part of Action Against Hunger's annual campaign Restaurants Against Hunger, which runs throughout October.

The fundraiser, which will take place at London's Royal Exchange on 19 October, will feature restaurant critics including The Observer's Jay Rayner, The Evening Standard's Charles Campion and The Guardian's Matthew Fort.

Together they will prepare a five-course dinner, including a main course of British pork, with chefs such as Raymond Blanc, Shane Osborn and Fergus Henderson judging their efforts.

Tickets to the event, which will be hosted by the BBC Radio's Nigel Barden, are priced £130 and are available from Aimee Rowlands on 020 8293 6138 or a.rowlands@aahuk.org.

Action Against Hunger works in more than 40 of the world's poorest countries, with its vocation being to save the lives of starving children.
