Jay Rayner
Nights Out At Home–Live

Jay Rayner

Join the ever-tasteful, often hilarious, always readable writer and broadcaster Jay Rayner as he celebrates 25 years as The Observer’s award-winning restaurant critic with the publication of Nights Out At Home, a memoir-in-recipes. Throughout his quarter of a century eating professionally in some of the world’s best (and frankly worst) restaurants, Jay has always reverse-engineered his favourite dishes; now he’s ready to share with you those brilliant recipes and his memories of the restaurants that served them. 

In this joyfully greedy show, Jay answers the questions we’ve always wanted answered, put to him by a host of virtual star interviewers: what expertise does a restaurant critic need? What’s the best way to roast a chicken? Is he just an utterable snob? And if he’s so bloody clever, why doesn’t he just open his own damn restaurant? And you’ll get to ask your questions too. 

Nights Out At Home is an uproarious, insightful, and butter-smeared journey through the life of a man with one of the most coveted jobs in the world.


For those who are unable to attend the live show, the event at Storyhouse, Chester will be live streamed via Fane Online. Worldwide viewing is available and the stream will be available for one week on demand after the initial broadcast, so you can watch at anytime if the initial broadcast time doesn't suit your timezone.
