How Prue Leith, a raw South African without proper education and money, who had failed countless classes, had never worked in a catering business or a restaurant and had never been a cooking teacher, ended up own a catering company, a Michelin-starred restaurant and a school of great chefs? And at the same time produce fifteen cookbooks, eight novels and an autobiography? And end up sitting on the boards of companies like British Rail, Whitbread and Halifax? And chairing government quangos like the School Food Trust, launching the Fourth Plinth sculpture project in Trafalgar Square, leading organizations like the Restaurateurs Association, the Royal Society of Arts and the first company to turn around failing state schools? And also have a successful television career, become a judge on the Great British Baking Show and have two happy marriages?
Nothing is on the menu of this brand new frank, revealing and very funny show. Prue will share a myriad of fascinating anecdotes about her life: taking the audience through the highs and lows of being a successful restaurateur, novelist, businesswoman and judge on the Great British Baking Show; feeding the rich and famous, cooking for royalty and even poisoning its customers – all for the very first time.
In the second half of the show, Prue will be joined on stage by Clive Tulloh, who will answer audience questions he’s always wanted to ask, making the show a unique night to remember.
Prue Leith said: “I’ve never done a stage show before and at 82 I’m probably crazy to try it, but it’s great fun, it makes the audience laugh and lets me talk about the catering, publishers, television and writing. , and sing the praises of food, love and life.”
