NZ TV Premiere

Food TV – Sundays from 4 May, 10.00pm

Join Annabel Croft in this delightful 10 part series as she attempts to recreate Mrs Beeton’s picnic for forty people from her 1861 Book of Household management. Tour the picturesque landscape in search of chefs and the finest of ingredients to faithfully recreate dishes from roast Beef to Blancmange, Calf’s Head to Cabinet Pudding. Her challenge begins with a visit to local couple Steve and Elly Chalmers who bake bread the traditional way at Great Bircham Windmill near Kings Lynn. The end result should see a magnificent summer picnic on the lawn at Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire.
