Diamond Dogs and won tons

In honour of the Chinese Year of the Dog, the Diamond Dogs event held this week at the Yang Sing succeeded in raising nearly six thousand pounds for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

There were dogs. There were diamonds. And there were a helluva lot of won tons, as two of Manchester’s most famous chefs competed head to head in aid of charity.

Following a champagne fuelled dim sum canapé reception, Harry Yeung and Andrew Nutter worked together side by side to create a feast of the finest Eastern and Western cuisine before showcasing their talents in the Battle of the Won Ton. Andrew, despite his best efforts with his signature Black Pudding Won Ton, lost out to the master of Cantonese cooking, Harry Yeung, whose team made more won tons than Andrew’s in the allocated time.

On the challenge, Harry Yeung said: “I am pleased that Yang Sing was able to host such a worthwhile event and that we raised so much money. Winning the Battle of the Won Ton was a bonus! I think that the talents were equal, but my extra years of experience just made the difference.”

The food was followed by an auction, with prizes including a £1,500 diamond from Peter Jackson the jeweller, a pair of Rio Ferdinand’s signed boots, and even Andrew Nutter’s time, with one diner expressing a wish for her 13 year old son to spend some time in the kitchen learning from Andrew.

The evening proved a phenomenal success and the target figure from Guide Dogs for the Blind was exceeded. Julie Leedham with Ellie and Mike Newman with Ross, both Guide Dog owners with their dogs, were guests of honour, who gave moving speeches about what having a Guide Dog means to them and their lives.

Total amount raised: £5,990 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
