"Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers," said Shakespeare. 400 years later, food and theatre reunites in dramatic fashion at Foodies Festival, and the script calls for you and a fellow player to join the cast: £9 gets you two tickets for curtain call on Friday 13 July (a £20 value). Or check the ensemble on Saturday 14 July or Sunday 15 July for the same price. Lead role in the Chef's Theatre -- preparing signature dishes and revealing tricks of the trade -- goes to TV chef Martin Blunos, who opened his first restaurant, Lettonie, in Bristol 24 years ago and won his first Michelin star there, too. Plot your way through even more soliloquising chefs, gorgeous food tableau in the exhibitor area, sonnet for everyone in Street Food Avenue, local impresarios in the producers' market, and plenty more waiting in the Harbourside wings. Be prompt and the cameo is yours.
