Today we’re launching an Instagram led campaign with TNQ Restaurant & Bar to encourage food-loving Mancunians to share photos of their favourite meals online to raise money.

#mymanchestermeal will tap into the huge trend of Instagram food photography and see entrants posting images of their favourite or most impressive meals – whether cooked by themselves or by a friend/family member – on their Twitter or Instagram account, tagging @tnqrestaurant and @4EVERManchester using the hashtags #mymanchestermeal and #forevermanchester

From the entries, a dish will then be selected at the beginning of each month for six months by our Chief Executive Nick Massey and TNQ Restaurant & Bar’s Head Chef Anthony Fielden.

Anthony will then recreate the chosen dishes, which will feature on TNQ Restaurant & Bar’s special menu for a month, with 50p donated to us every time the dish is ordered.

Nick Massey comments, “People’s fascination with what others eat and sharing their favourite meals, has never been so popular – with Instagram giving our obsession a new outlet.

When searching through photography of homemade meals on Instagram, I’ve noticed the standard of some dishes is impressively high so we believe offering foodies an opportunity to have their dish added to the menu of TNQ Restaurant & Bar – one of Manchester’s favourite and longest established restaurants  – will prove very popular and this initiative will go down a storm!”

Anyone can enter so happy cooking!
