Masterchef judge Jay Rayner brings The Ten (Food) Commandments to Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch

Award-winning restaurant critic,  Masterchef judge and chair of BBC Radio 4’s Kitchen Cabinet, Jay Rayner, brings his hilarious brand new show The Ten (Food) Commandments to the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch on Sunday 24 September.

Audiences will join Jay Rayner, the nation’s new culinary Moses, as he comes armed with a new set of hand-tooled commandments for today’s food-obsessed age. Using comedy, he deals once and for all with 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 Jay’s previous publication, My Dining Hell, and saw him examine Britain’s love affair with lousy reviews, Jay is embarking on a whole new tour. The Ten (Food) Commandments combines reportage and anecdotes with recipes worthy of adoration. In this audio-visual romp Jay Rayner attempts to lead us to the edible Promised Land and provides hilarious guidance on the very best way to eat now. The show includes an after show Q&A and book signing.

Jay Rayner is an award-winning writer and broadcaster, best known for his work as a Masterchef judge and restaurant critic for the Observer. He is a former Critic of the Year and Restaurant Critic of the Year, and in the 2014 British Press Awards he was shortlisted for both Critic of the Year and Specialist Journalist of the Year. 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.

The Ten (Food) Commandments by Jay Rayner comes to the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch on Sunday 24 September at 2.30pm. Tickets are £14 adults and can be purchased by calling the Box Office on 01708 443333, in person at the theatre or online at
