The Theatre of Food returns to Latitude

Theatre of Food returns for the sixth time to Latitude, and once again features a culinary cast of the most exciting and creative food talents working in Britain today!

Theatre of Food

In 2024, Theatre of Food is thrilled to welcome vegetable cook and photographer extraordinaire Joe Woodhouse, whose books Your Daily Veg and More Daily Veg have been vegetarian trailblazers. Food waste hero and Lagom chef Martyn Odell joins us to explore the many ways in which we can combat food waste, whilst Nicola Lamb of Sift and Kitchen Projects – described by The Observer as ‘an incredible resource’ – will demonstrate the pathbreaking techniques that underpin her pop-up bakery, ‘lark!’.

GBBO legend Crystelle Pereira returns once more to pack out the Theatre of Food tent with her brilliantly simple cooking and baking recipes.

We are delighted to welcome back Dina Macki, who brings her enticing Oman-y flavours back to the Theatre of Food stage, whilst Samuel Goldsmith will showcase all things Tinned Tomatoes from his new book, and Sophie Wyburd will cook up some serious culinary comforts on the stage.

Need a refreshing break from the Latitude heat? Come and join In Pour Taste, the comedy and wine legends who will be our hosts for a humour and wine-filled tasting. We will have an in-depth look into making wine in a windmill with the Gutters & Stars Winery. Local gin distillers Fishers Gin will bring a whole new regional insight into gin making, and Angus Alchemy will showcase the new look of Moonshine. And there’s more, because local East Anglian breweries Ampersand and Big Drop Brewing will be sharing all the insights you need into making beer!

We are delighted to welcome an inspiring cast of the best craft bakers in Britain. Come and learn the best in baking techniques with Marcia Harris and Jemima Wood, and listen in to a conversation on how to make better-bred bread with Chris Young and other members of the Real Bread Campaign.

Our panel discussions will see Malika Basu return to chair a discussion on the world flavours that are emerging in our kitchens and restaurants. Plus Niki Segnit, multi-award winner and author of The Flavour Thesaurus, will join us to host a lighthearted look at the recipes and flavours we’d prefer to avoid.

All this, plus the return of the Theatre of Food Disco, and Albion Nights Kitchen Concerts will bring their musical magic for the second time to the Theatre of Food.

A magical weekend awaits, don’t miss out on the best eating, drinking and dancing!

Theatre of Food is presented by Samuel McKenna and Foodhaus Productions.
