Blackfriars present Foods and Feuds: Two Cooks of Hexham
Mrs Hannah Glasse and guests invite you to join them for a unique evening of culinary and theatrical experiment.
Monday 30th March 6pm & 8.30pm at Blackfriars Restaurant & Banquet Hall, Friars Street, Newcastle

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 women unfold through food, and the inequality relating to women and female representation through history is 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 performance with the meal. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements, conditions we should know about or any other specific requests.

What people said

“ I really enjoyed the evening – for its charm, novelty, unexpectedness. I learned something about my town amd was introduced to three feisty women of history all linked through cooking.”
“It was brilliant. Humour, sadness and fascinating historical insight into the lives of women who had much in common and much which divided them. November Club is truly bringing them back to life.”
