The Pantry Cooking Show
Frank Camorra raids The Pantry
Forget Blanchett, Crowe, Kidman and Collette; these days it seems it’s all about Calombaris, Grossi, Pete and Manu, and Camorra.
The carving knife wielding, spatula-twirling chefs are clearly top dogs in celebrity town and no one knows that better than the people at The Pantry in Brighton. They’ve been putting on The Pantry Cooking Show for the past three years or so, which involves turning the dining room of the Church Street institution into a kitchen theatre set and inviting 100 ticket-bearing folk like us to come in, listen and watch, and then devour the five courses cooked in front of them by celebrity chefs.
Stand-up comedy, a cook book and prize give-aways are also part of the deal, and naturally the meal is accompanied by as much fine wine and as many premium beers as you can put away.
Sound like an excellent night out? We think so and obviously so do hundreds of others, because Frank Camorra’s upcoming July shows have sold out.
But luckily for us, due to the demand they have recently released a third show on July 22nd. Camorra – chef and owner of smashing Spanish restaurant MoVida – will be putting on some of his favourite tapas, while teaching us a thing or two about cooking them.
Agenda loves MoVida and Camorra and we really recommend this one. But perhaps even more show-stopping thanks to his TV persona, George Calombaris will no doubt draw a further crowd or two in October when he takes to The Pantry’s culinary stage.
