Royal Recipes BBC1

Postby cyprusmoira » January 24th, 2017, 6:25 am

We watched the first episode yesterday afternoon. A combination of food and history presented from the kitchens of Audley End by Michael Burke and a proper chef, lovely background of copper pans and jelly moulds. I shall try their version of Coronation Chicken.
It is on every weekday afternoon at 3 45pm

Thank you Moira, I saw this advertised a little while ago and thought it looked interesting - but then forgot all about it. On just at the right time to watch with a cuppa :)

I am enjoying this series too, though I doubt if I will try making any of the things :)

I really like the programme too. Sadly, they are not allowed to publish the recipes, there have been a few things I would really love to have tried.

I really don't like the trend for presenter and chef to share plates and cutlery though.

I don't think they share cutlery do they ? The guests on Saturday Kitchen always share plates .... (just saying ;) )

I have seen them lick the same spoons on Royal Recipes.

When the trend for a single plate started on Saturday Kitchen I'm sure that each person politely took one mouthful and passed it on, now they go back in with the same fork. I dislike it on any programme - just as I dislike the trend for a beautifully cooked meal being devoured standing up in the kitchen with juices dripping down chins. This is probably why on other programmes ordinary people have no idea how to lay a table. Rant over. :lol: :lol:

Probably done because, as we all know, food eaten while standing up contains no calories.... otherwise they'd all be porkers ;)

I suspect the main reason they do it is because it's so much simpler for the director and camera man; make the food, serve it, eat it without changing location or taking time to follow them to a different set (which would cost money too)

Similarly, they only have the time to watch the chef assemble one finished plate, we don't want to spend half of Saturday Kitchen watching someone make up 4 identical plates, we only need the presentation once

And on competitions often there is only one finished plate to be judged, even on MasterChef 3 plates go into the critics and the 4th goes to the judges,

More about workflow than manners I think

Sue, I am sure you are right, but I still think a little more effort could be made even standing at the worktop, presentation is quite important after all.
