Head Chef Russell Uppermeal has invited friends and colleagues to help him celebrate receiving the “Most Ridiculously Expensive Meal” award for his Battered Oysters in Unicorn Sauce. But before the evening is over, Russell is found murdered, sawn into pieces! You are invited to join us to help solve the mystery of the “Death of a Chef”
Celebrity Chef (she’ll cook anything, as long as it’s still moving!) Costume Suggestions : Your zany personality is apparent from the brightly coloured trousers you wear under your chef’s jacket and the trademark pink kerchief tied around your neck. Bright, dangly earrings and a pink beret complete the look. Don’t forget your salad tongs which you’re famous for using more to pinch other people than to serve food!
Waiter (he puts the wait in waiting!) Costume Suggestions : Dressed in your waiter’s uniform of black trousers, white shirt, red waistcoat and red bow tie, you would almost be indistinguishable from any other waiter were it not for your strong Italian accent. You’re never seen without a silver serving tray in hand and a small notebook and pen for jotting down orders from those annoying customers.
Hostess (she works the tables, the bar, and the guests!) Costume Suggestions : Your slinky evening gown is designed to entice diners, as is the split running from your ankle to your thigh. A few carefully chosen pieces of diamond jewellery sparkle at your throat and wrist, and your hair is neatly coiffed into a French twist. You always carry a spare menu in case of latecomers.
Restaurant Owner (he has a large appetite for food and money!) Costume Suggestions : With your double-breasted pinstripe suit and silk tie, you look exactly like the rich and powerful man you are. Gold cufflinks and a gold watch flash at your wrists and every so often you take out your mobile phone to check for important messages from around the globe. Don’t forget to bring a large amount of cash…just for show.
Critic (he’ll give you a good rating, if you’ll let his mates in!) Costume Suggestions : Dressed in a casual grey suit and open-neck shirt, you aim to blend in with the clientele at every restaurant you visit. However, the clipboard and pen you always carry to jot down your evaluation tends to give you away, as does your habit of wiping every chair with a white handkerchief before you sit down.
Bartender (give her a wink and you might get a drink!) Costume Suggestions : Dressed in the regulation short black skirt and white apron of a bartender, you still manage to express your personality by your choice of black t-shirt with ‘The Truth is Out There’ printed on it. You always carry your own customized cocktail shaker and an MP3 player to listen to when no one’s looking.
Sous Chef (she’s a smoldering cook with a scorching temper!) Costume Suggestions : You pride yourself on your professional approach so you’re kitted out in a smart white chef’s jacket and trousers. You drew the short straw though when it came to your hat, which is the largest example of a chef’s toque ever seen. Your essential accessories are an oven glove, a saucepan and a wooden spoon.
Wine Buff (pinot attention to his chablis appearance!) Costume Suggestions : You consider your style to be like a fine wine - mature, expensive and only appealing to a select few. You wear a purple suit with a yellow shirt, green bow tie and a blue handkerchief tucked into your breast pocket. You always carry a good strong corkscrew and, of course, a portable spit bucket for wine-tasting emergencies.
