Owner Jean de Rien, also known as Jonathan Nulty, The Singing Chef, said: “We love to find new and enjoyable ways to raise funds for our charity partners and the food and drink quiz was a great way to share our knowledge and love of food in a fun way that makes money for Guild Care.”

The quiz will relaunch on Friday, February 21, and will then run every second Thursday of the month. Entry is £14, to include a buffet, wine and a £4 donation to Guild Care.

Teams will enjoy games such as ingredient taste testing, food-themed word and picture questions, wine tasting and naming ingredients in a selection of dishes.

Auds Stapleton, community fundraising officer at Guild Care, said: “Our thanks to Jean, Ro and the team at The Dining Room for supporting us again this year with their monthly quiz. It’s such a fun and innovative evening and we are so grateful for the money raised that helps support our community services.”
