About the Event

It’s your last meal on Earth. What are you going to have?

It’s the question award-winning Observer restaurant critic, MasterChef judge and writer Jay Rayner has been asked most often by audiences across the UK. It happens so often that he has decided the time had come to investigate the concept of the last supper and why it intrigues us so.

Is it because of the opportunity it presents us with to let your appetites run riot? Or is it because it’s a greedy way in which to tell the story of your own life? And if so, what would a man like Jay Rayner, who for two decades has made a living eating out in restaurants, choose to put on the menu?

In this barnstorming new show, based on his new book, Rayner investigates our fascination with last suppers and tells the stories of the killer dishes that would end up on his table: how he was introduced to oysters by his late mother, for example, or how he almost torched a hotel through his love for snails. Plus, he’ll get the audience to design their own last meal.

My Last Supper with Jay Rayner. It’s a show to die for

Running time: 90 minutes, one interval.

Jay Rayner

ISBN:9781783351466

Rather than dwell too much on that fact, in My Last Supper Jay embarks on a journey through his life in food, in pursuit of the meal to end all meals. His quest takes him from oysters on the Essex coast to sourdough in San Francisco, and from his love affair with a particular Swiss vinegar to the bacon sarnies of his student days.
