The Chef Show

The Chef Show


University of Essex,
Wivenhoe Park,


Two actors play all the roles in this story of a busy night in the local curry house. They are also joined by a chef from your very own local restaurant – offering a spicy cookery demonstration.
The Chef Show centres on father and son Abdul and Khalid on a particularly busy night in their restaurant. As they struggle to deal with all of the customers ‘out front’ and the staff in the kitchen they also have to decide on the future of the family business.
Will Khalid carry on the family business, or is this the end?
Includes a chance to share food and conversation with your local chef and the cast.
A delicious fusion of comedy and cookery for all the family!
Featuring a guest chef from The Spice restaurant, Elmstead Market.
