Summer Cooking

In the midst of a whirlwind summer of cooking jobs, an update, to precede proper blog posts about each.

Having cooked and made cocktails for 70 at a summer birthday party, we headed to the West Midlands to cater for the casts, crews, production staff and the public at Birmingham European Theatre Festival (BE Festival). Over four intense days and nights, and with washing-up help from festival volunteers, we served 800 plates on four long tables set for 120 people each, culminating in a new version of Eat Your Heart Out, a long running and ever-evolving production by the Kindle Theatre Company.

Almost as soon as we had arrived back in London, we were off to Leicester to do a week-long project at Wyvern Primary School for Creative Partnerships. This was our second school project, after our recent trip to Walkwood Primary in Redditch in May. In a marquee erected in the school playing field we built a kitchen classroom in which we taught classes of Year Twos and Sixes about Sweet, Salty, Bitter and Sour foods with tasting sessions, cooking lessons and theatrical direction and storytelling workshops run by our friends Nina and Kathryn, the 'Taste Inspectors'
