In its quest to revive the lost art of hosting, Timothy Oulton, is looking to appoint a Global Dinner Party Critic. Reviewing four vastly different dinner party experiences on three continents, the critic will not solely be a food critic, but will instead review a diverse array of hosted dining experiences, from menu and interiors to music, welcome, atmosphere, guests and conversation, all as part of a daringly different global dinner party odyssey.

Partnering exclusively with luxury launches site VeryFirstTo, Timothy Oulton is searching for an extremely discerning individual to take the role of guest Global Dinner Party Critic at each event.

Travelling to all four destinations, the critic will join a top notch guest list for a delectable menu and interiors setting, with each one built around a different selection from the Timothy Oulton collection, exploring different expressions of modern hosted dining. After completing the tour, the successful candidate will receive a dining room interior worth up to USD25, 000 from the Timothy Oulton collection.

Each of the four dinner parties will be themed differently, from small and intimate to a show-stopping dinner for 100 hosted by the brand’s Founder and Creative Director, Tim Oulton, with the chance to meet the Design team at Timothy Oulton’s creative hub and showroom in China. Other venues include a trendy urban hideaway in the heart of Manhattan in New York, the iconic Los Angeles Athletic Club in L.A. and the Timothy Oulton gallery in Amsterdam, housed in a former 19th century church.

Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, adds: “Having previously launched the legendary hunt for a researcher for the ‘$1m 1 Year Luxury Vacation’, VeryFirstTo is privileged to be hosting the search for the ultimate dream appointment for anyone who loves interiors, travel, fine dining and appreciates a magnificent atmosphere. The individual must be an elegant wordsmith, an interiors aficionado, a cuisine connoisseur, a social media socialite, and an experienced dinner party guest.”
