The Theatre Cafe Teams Up With West End Performers To Launch Stagey Cookbook

The Theatre Cafe have teamed up with West End legend Mazz Murray to release a stagey cookbook full of recipes from performers across the performing Arts industries.

And 5,6,7,EAT - The Theatre Cafe Cookbook is inspired by how much extra time we have spent in our kitchens over the past year. Unable to perform for audiences, our stagey faves have been cooking up some creative meals, desserts and, of course, cocktails in their kitchens and are now ready to share it with the public.

Some of the performers taking part in the cookbook include Alexandra Burke, Louise Dearman, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Brenda Edwards, Kerry Ellis, Alice Fearn, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Ruthie Henshall, Rob Houchen, Bonnie Langford, John Owen-Jones, Jodie Steele, Danielle Steers, Rachel Tucker and Marisha Wallace.

Not only does the Cookbook feature recipes galore but it gives you the chance to get to know the performers, and the Cafe, a little better. Find out how The Theatre Cafe came to be, plus see what sort of treats they offer inside.

Joe Davey, Owner of The Theatre Cafe, said; “We are thrilled to finally be releasing a cookbook, and thought it appropriate to commemorate one year since theatres closed on 16 March 2020. It’s been tough for our industry, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Until then, we will go on supporting everyone as much as we can, and continue to fly our flag for the Arts.”

Mazz Murray said; “Because London theatre has been so dark, my theatre family and some of my stage-star friends have joined the amazing Theatre Cafe to make this recipe cookbook of all our foodie favs. Shakespeare would never have believed that this year ‘food be the music of love’ - so, eat up!

The cookbook features over 70 recipes from performers and creatives and will be available in hardcover and is priced at £25 plus P&P, with a portion of proceeds going toward theatre charity Acting for Others.
