The rebel chef will show the world how to cook, and maybe swear, like a Mancunian from 7pm tonight.
United We Stream, the digital platform broadcasting Greater Manchester culture to the world, with the added bonus of supporting its nighttime economy, launched last Friday night to the sounds of (one half of) Solardo. Their performance was followed by Radio XS DJ Gareth Brooks on Saturday night and local band Slow Readers Club on Sunday. (Featured image: Kala Bistro Manchester)
The live streaming platform was set up by Night Time Economy Adviser to Greater Manchester Sacha Lord, and features a diverse range of hosts, musicians, performers, and entertainers from 7pm daily. It’s free to watch, but donations can be made with funds going towards the local creative and nighttime industry, as well as Nordoff Robbins, a national music therapy charity, who have a base in Greater Manchester. In Berlin, where United We Stream first launched on March 19, donations have already surpassed £700,000, and they’ve had millions of hits on the website.
Tonight, viewers will be treated to dinner (or, at least how to make it) with Gary Usher, live and direct from one of his five elite bistros. If you want to join the cook-along, he’ll be making a glorious gnocchi dish, rice pudding and a tasty beetroot salad.
The award-winning restauranteur is well-known for his truth-telling and unabashed attitude, having in the past called a table’s drink order ‘dreadful’ and replied on Twitter to a negative TripAdvisor review with, ‘we were happy to go to the shop for your mate’s dreadful red wine spritzer and 20 B&H. We just didn’t like you.’ Charming.
Catch the famous chef tonight and rep Greater Manchester culture to the world.
