The award-winning November Club and Blackfriars bring you Foods and Feuds: Two Cooks of Hexham - an imaginary time travelling story inspired by the life of 18th century writer Hannah Glasse, the long-forgotten author of the most successful cookbook of all time ‘The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy’. The story of the lives of three cooks unfold through food, with the historical challenges in the lives of women questioned with poignant effect.
Two very intimate exclusive performances, for a very limited audience of just 25 per performance, will take place in Blackfriars Cookery School - one at 6pm, the later show at 8.30pm - both around an hour long - with a meal in either the main Restaurant or ornate Banquet Hall for ALL audience members at 7.15pm. i.e. you may dine either before or after the performance.
This show is designed as a culinary, theatrical experiment with a focus on provenance, heritage, story and experience.
Tickets cost £57.50 and include a 3 course set meal with coffee at 7.15pm as well as an intimate performance. Please note we can only sell tickets for the full package. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements, conditions we should know about or any other specific requests.

“ I really enjoyed the evening – for its charm, novelty, unexpectedness. I learned something about my town and was introduced to three feisty women of history all linked through cooking.”
