Announced on 16 March 2021, a year since the West End went dark due to the global pandemic, here’s what Joe Davey, Owner of the theatre Cafe had to say :
“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.”
And 5, 6, 7, EAT – The Theatre Cafe Cookbook features over 70 recipes from a host of stage performers and creatives, including Fabian Aloise, Tracie Bennett, Courtney Bowman, Alexandra Burke, Oscar Conlon-Morrey, Louise Dearman, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Brenda Edwards, Kerry Ellis, Alice Fearn, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Ben Forster, Ruthie Henshall, Rob Houchen, Michael Jibson, Idriss Kargbo, Bonnie Langford, Hannah Lowther, Millie O’Connell, John Owen-Jones, Dianne Pilkington, Arlene Phillips, Jodie Prenger, Golda Rosheuvel, Jenna Russell, Jodie Steele, Danielle Steers, Rachel Tucker, Marisha Wallace and, of course, Mazz Murray plus many, many more.
About the book 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!”
And 5, 6, 7, EAT – The Theatre Cafe Cookbook will be released in April 2021. The cookbook will be in hardcover and is priced at £25 plus P&P, with a portion of proceeds going toward theatre charity Acting for Others. A charity that provides emotional and financial support to all the theatre workers in time of needs. The book is available to pre-order now.
