We love theatre. And, as you may have guessed, we love food. So when we heard news of a mash-up of the two, there was a whole load of excitement rushing around Homemade HQ.

 

The Table of Delights is the work of theatre director Katy Carmichael. All-things-edible are looked after by chefs Claire Thomson, the Guardian children's food columnist and author of The Five O'Clock Apron (Hardback, RRP £20, Ebury Publishing), and Michelin Bib Gourmand winner Matt Williamson. 

 

Aimed at families with little ones, the show is interactive. Split into five acts, it's a gastro journey through how what we eat grows in fields and makes it way on to our plates – with tasty titbits along the way. Case in point: a pair of growing beetroots fall in love on a farm, before harvest comes and they're ripped up. Juice splatters everywhere, and they're turned into a purple jelly, served up to onlookers with cake.

And, if you fancy an adult version with wine included, there's one showing now.

 

Snazzy.
