If you’ve ever wanted cookery classes from one of the ‘100 Sexiest Men in the World’ (and a Michelin-starred, 5AA Rosette-winning, Frenchman, too), then join celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli at Hull Truck Theatre for some scrumptious food – and help raise money for the theatre at the same time.
Hull Truck’s second annual Food Festival comes round on Sunday 27 March, with cookery demonstrations and stalls from local food producers. It’s all in the aim of generating some cash for the theatre, and exploring a range of exciting produce from around the region.
There’ll be tasting sessions too – try a bit of local cheese, or a range of different chocolates – before moving onto beer tasting and cocktail classes. Experts will be on hand to discuss the history and culture behind the food, as well as offering cookery tips and guidance.
For those with kids, there’s a ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’ storytelling session, facepainting sessions and drama workshops. Take time out from browsing the food stalls to sample some of Hull Truck’s own cuisine, with a special menu prepared by the Head Chef, James Allcock. Plus, pick up a brochure, and you’ll get 10% off your food next time you visit.
It’s certain to be a sell-out – so if you’re a food fan, book your ticket now!
