Jay Rayner

Thu 16 Jul 2020

You can still book online for this event here (until 48 hours after the livestream)

Join award-winning restaurant critic, MasterChef judge and Kitchen Cabinet presenter Jay Rayner for a special one-off ‘in conversation’ to mark the paperback publication of his hit book My Last Supper, One Meal A Lifetime In The Making, streamed live from London’s Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zedel. He’ll be grilled to a turn by his Guardian restaurant reviewing colleague and co-MasterChef judge the marvellous Grace Dent. They’ll discuss Jay’s raucous life in food, he’ll tell outrageous stories from his career in journalism, and explain what inspired him to set out across the world to find the dishes for his last meal on earth despite – he hopes - being a long way from the grave. They’ll also talk about the impact of the current crisis on the restaurant sector.
