Peace and Loaf, Jesmond Road is set to welcome ‘Mr Wolf’ and his ‘Men of Meat’, in the latest charity event for the Brain Tumour Charity, dubbed ‘Which came first – the chicken or the egg’ this March.

The fundraiser will consist of a six-course tasting menu, with each course containing some element of chicken – in theme with the night.

Mr Wolf, also known as Hamish Dow, started the Men of Meat movement as a social event between friends. Now, it has grown to something which both men – and women – are invited to join in on a number of provisos, including the omission of a vegetable option, the wearing of fake moustaches, and the use of name badges – Not-Bob for gentlemen and Bob for ‘not-gentlemen’.

Dow says it is great that what started as a love for meat is now to benefit worthy causes.

“It’s fantastic that the Men of Meat notion is not only giving people a fun night to remember, but is also going to help support the Brain Tumour Charity.

“It’s always a great night, and at Peace and Loaf it should be no different. We’ve got a Masterchef finalist [Dave Coulson] providing the food so how could it be anything but amazing?”

The ‘chicken or egg the egg’ theme follows in the footsteps of Peace and Loaf’s previous efforts, such as ‘back to front staff swap’, which saw chefs turn waiters and vice versa.

Geeta Ral

The occasion raised £1,300 for the cause, which is especially close to one of the eatery’s owners Geeta Ral, whose husband Kuly sadly passed away from a brain tumour in 2012.

Geeta says if past events are anything to go by, ‘chicken or egg’ should be one not to be missed.

“In the past we’ve raised so much for the Brain Tumour Charity and we are always happy to do so. But I really don’t think we’ve seen anything like the ‘Men of Meat’ movement come to Peace and Loaf.

“It’ll be a night with a difference, and one to remember that’s for sure.”


Mr Wolf Men of Meat comes to Peace and Loaf on Tuesday March 14, with those interested in taking part asked to contact Peace and Loaf on 0191 281 5222 or visit peaceandloaf.co.uk.
