taste: queer cuisine

Experiencing Keith Floyd withdrawal symptoms? Well, there's no need to go cold turkey. As part of its ongoing "Feast for the Eyes" season this month, the National Film Theatre will be tickling your tastebuds with the delicious Camp Cooks and Queer Cuisine, a celebration of that most flamboyant of worlds, television cookery. The compilation is presented by The Independent's David Benedict - no doubt one of the factors that contributed to its sell-out success at this year's London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival - and features sterling performances from Hudson and Halls, Ainsley Harriott and the oft-imitated but always unmatched Fanny and Johnny Craddock (above). And once your kitsch cravings have been satisfied, you can becalm your titillated palate after the screening with the free cup of chilled summer soup from sponsors the New Covent Garden Soup Company.
