A LIGHT-HEARTED CULINARY LOOK AT THE BRITISH IN INDIA

IN THE WEST END, AND ON BBC RADIO 2's FRIDAY NIGHT IS MUSIC NIGHT
It was the whiff of spice which first lured the British to India. But . . .
This wonderfully witty show combines a whistle-stop tour of the Raj with the fascinating origins of the British love affair with Indian cuisine. A Cook’s Tour of the Raj is a delicious entertainment: prepared from top-quality literary ingredients, seasoned with humour, cooked to perfection and served with a spicy musical accompaniment from Noël Coward, Gilbert and Sullivan, Strauss, Puccini, Offenbach and many more.
A Cook’s Tour of the Raj was created for a gala dinner at one of London’s most famous Indian restaurants, The Cinnamon Club. It is performed by a cast of four accompanied by either a piano or a small classical ensemble.
