The winning dish of monkfish and prawns will be recreated by TNQ Restaurant & Bar’s Head Chef Anthony Fielden and sold on TNQ’s specials board for £19.95, with 50p per order donated to Forever Manchester.
The winner, Yolanda Orea, shared her mouth-watering dish of Monkfish and Prawns in Marinera Sauce on Twitter and the dish immediately impressed both the charity and Anthony Fielden.
Anthony says,“Yolanda’s monkfish dish is quite elaborate for a home cook. I too enjoy cooking monkfish with prawns – it’s a great combination – and the simplicity of the dish allows the quality of the ingredients to shine through.
“I’m looking forward to putting my own spin on Yolanda’s dish and seeing what our customers think of the new special.”
Yolanda, a Director at an IT firm, says, “I love cooking and everyone I have ever cooked for tells me they love my food, so when I read about #mymanchestermeal in a magazine I was keen to enter my monkfish dish.
“It’s fantastic to think that the dish will help raise money for Forever Manchester.”
Chief Executive of Forever Manchester, Nick Massey, adds, “The Forever Manchester team has thoroughly enjoyed looking through the #mymanchestermeal entries – although they’ve made us very hungry!
If you’d like to taste Yolanda’s dish with Anthony’s added touch, you can order it from TNQ Restaurant & Bar’s special menu at £19.95 during January, with 50p donated to Forever Manchester from every sale.
With January’s winner selected, entries are now open for February’s #mymanchestermeal competition. Entrants must simply post a photo of their favourite homemade meal (either made by themselves or a friend/family member) and tag @tnqrestaurant and @4EVERManchester via Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #mymanchestermeal.
