The Ten (Food) Commandments by Jay Rayner
November 29, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£20
The Assembly House Norwich proudly presents award-winning restaurant critic and Masterchef judge Jay Rayner has decided it’s time to act. Enter our new culinary Moses, the legendary restaurant critic Jay Rayner, with a new with his one-man show which tackles the really big questions, like whether it is ever okay to covet thy neighbour’s oxen (it is), eating with your hands (very important indeed) and if you should cut off the fat (no).
After a hugely successful run of live dates in 2014-16 that featured in Jay’s previous publication, My Dining Hell, and saw him examine our love affair with lousy reviews, Jay is embarking on a whole new tour with an accompanying book. The Ten (Food) Commandments combines reportage and anecdotes with recipes worthy of adoration and in a live audio-visual romp, Jay Rayner attempts to lead us to the edible Promised Land.
Jay Rayner is an award-winning writer and broadcaster, best known for his work as a Masterchef judge and restaurant critic for the Observer. In a recent survey of journalists and the public by UK Press Gazette ,Jay was voted the most influential food and drink journalist in Britain. He likes pig.
