Rogue Kitchen is the perfect opportunity to spend some time in the woods, to get in touch with the joys of cooking on fire, to share a unique theatre adventure and enjoy some surprisingly good food that you cooked yourself, the wild way!
Rogue Kitchen is a delightful but down to earth experience, cooking good hearty food with primitive (and long forgotten) methods, anyone can take part and in fact, sharing the experience with your family or a group of friends all adds to the fun.
We will be baking hot pot bread, making wild woodland stew and delicious chocolate orange volcano cakes (Menu is vegetarian – please contact us for special dietary requirements).
If you are feeling adventurous your group could choose to cook Fire Baked Vegetable Lasagne (instead of Wild Woodland Stew) – there is a small additional ingredients charge for this.
Set among the incredible trees and beautiful bluebells of Tehidy Woods, North Cliffs, let your imaginations run free and burn off some steam with some brand new stories from the book of Rogue. So get lost in the woods for a while and remember the delights of sitting around a fire, talking and telling tales, cooking and sharing some truly amazing food.
Rogue Kitchen is an event for families (including all ages) and adults. It is best enjoyed in groups but coming alone (or in a smaller group) is a great opportunity to hang out with the Rogues.

Midsummer Night’s Dream meets Ray Mears at Tehidy

A wild woodland feast
A CHANCE encounter with a preview in this very paper of theatre with food in the woods (what’s not to like) plus fire, sent a group of three adults and two little ones flying down to Tehidy Woods on Thursday of half-term. The excuse to drive south? (as if you need one): Rogue Theatre’s Rogue Kitchen.
As rain turned into mellow evening sun, we got back in touch with that most primitive and essential of elements: fire. The woods filled with smoke, shot through with rays of evening light and against this natural staging, we were seamlessly guided through the making of bread to go into our little Dutch oven (a cast iron pot that sits in the embers of a fire), followed by veg preparation for the stew, to which we added water, seven different herbs and spices and some freshly foraged wild garlic, plus a pinch of woodland fairy dust.
Building a fire is one thing, cooking two very different dishes in it is another, but to co-ordinate a whole group of fires to come together to eat their stew and enjoy an animated Rogue tale at the same time is highly impressive. But it happened. Beautifully. Families, little ones, groups of adults, all stinking of smoke and proud of their stew and bread (both seasoned with woodland umami) gathered to hear the troupe’s beguiling tale of a Cornish king’s love and loss, featuring crows, a very special boat and some more magic.
We returned to the fires to check on the hollowed out oranges filled earlier with chocolate sponge mix. Topping them with clotted cream (what else) we gathered again to hear another tale of love which, much like our dessert, was wrapped in exotic spices and threatened by fire.
Rogue are a multi-talented group that regularly pack out the trees for their theatrical performances in the summer and winter. Rather than merely referencing the rich history and landscape of Cornwall, they immerse themselves completely in the folklore and characters of the county, making the experience utterly authentic, enriching and a whole lot of fun.
This, as founder Ollie Oakenshield describes, is “theatre for the people”, which through the company’s innovative Wild Card scheme, offers the option to donate extra money to the troupe’s future work, or much like the ‘suspended coffee’ of the café world, enables theatre-goers to donate a ticket to an unknown friend.
