Jay Rayner: A Greedy Man In A Hungry World

“The doctrine of local food is dead and farmers’ markets are merely a lifestyle choice for the affluent middle classes.”

Restaurant critic and BBC One Show reporter Jay Rayner combines hard-nosed reporting with witty memoir to take you on a journey through the world’s edible landscape. From debunking a supermarket trolley full of myths to shooting the food world’s most cherished sacred cows, this talk will change the way you shop, cook and eat forever.

Thunkshop Cafe will be serving a fabulous two course supper before the performance. Please call 07957166092 to book your place. Supper will be served at 6.30pm with seats reserved for diners.

On the menu will be:

– Home-made chicken stew and herby dumplings
– Pea, spinach and watercress soup with sour dough croutons and fresh bread
– Goats cheese and roasted red pepper salad with home made red onion chutney and freshly baked focaccia bread
– A selection of delicious home made cakes (including gluten free options)
