Can Cook – Won’t Kill?

Park Hall Restaurant is relaunching after an extensive rebrand.

With a new head chef leading an entirely new catering team, all head hunted from other Michelin starred establishments across the continent, the restaurant has high hopes of redefining excellence and securing the highly coveted Three Michelin Stars.

To celebrate the relaunch, celebrity guests from all over the world have been invited to experience its latest menu.  The catering staff are on “high alert” that culinary critics may well be in attendance on this opening night and with the possibility that a Michelin inspector may indeed also be in attendance on this first evening, everyone is looking out for the tell-tale signs of a man eating alone.

However when Al Dente the new Restaurant Manager is found dead mid-way through the first sitting, all hopes of a good review fall flat, and the hunt for a Michelin inspector turns into a hunt for a murderer.  Who killed the gourmet and why?

How it works:

Multi-room events are designed to be run in multiple rooms in a venue and are a great way of showing off your premises, or getting maximum footfall through what would otherwise be too small a venue for a traditional murder mystery evening.

These events have proved very popular with the guests, as it encourages them to interrogate the suspects and locate clues hidden around the building. There are usually seven to eight cast, one murder occurs before the evening and the crime scene is set up in one of the rooms in the venue.

The instructions document (the sample file attached) contains the details of the physical clues you will need to obtain for the evening – these are usually easy to obtain props, and some games have paper clues within them too.

We usually suggest a roving buffet as the guests move between rooms, but some hosts prefer to have a formal two-course meal mid-way through the evening.

For these events guests require a special handout and a pen/pencil to keep track of information presented to them.

The scripts are, in the main, monologues which means they can be learned ahead of the event by the actors. Two actors will share a duologue.

Due to the nature of these events, and the need for each guest to have a hand-out, we will only print one copy of each file when ordered as a printed kit. If you wish further copies of the guest handout – please get in touch so we can find out how many copies you need and provide you with a quote.

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), envelopes so you can send out your invitations, and either a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play the inspector MP3s; OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

Characters in the game:

Sharon Platter (Waitress)
Young, bright eyed and eager to please, Sharon has all the skills she needs to pass around canapes, but lacks finesse and education.

Julien Stix (Head Chef)
Arrogant and flamboyant, this French MasterChef is not an easy man to work for, nor please.

Philip De’ Glasse (T.V. Celebrity)
One of the hosts of the popular Drink and Food programme, Philip De’Glasse is a galloping gourmet, a darling on screen and frightfully upper class.

Lettuce Bapp (Food Editor)
Attractive with refined tastes, Lettuce turns heads, and has a reputation of being able to make or break a restaurant with her reviews.

Ed Wayter (Maitre D’)
Smooth, charming and the height of discretion, Ed Wayter is reliable and informed and keeps the front of house running like clockwork.

Fonda Cakes (Food Critic for a Tabloid Newspaper)
A previous TV celebrity turned food critic, Fonda prefers baking to haut cuisine and loves nothing better than old fashioned comfort food.

Frieda Lobsta (Sous Chef)
Second in command in the kitchen, Frieda is very much the boss, and not a woman to be messed with, especially when sharp knives are around.

Inspector Rita Cookbook
Whatever happens this evening, the inspector will always get his man (or woman). The question is will any of the other guests be able to solve the case first?
