Did you watch the first episode of Victorian Bakers last Tuesday?
We’re glad we did because we spotted a familiar face – food historian
(and friend of ours) Dr Annie Gray.
Annie came to Charlecote back in 2013 to advise us on our Victorian Kitchens. She also gave us some demonstrations in our historic space, showing a variety of venison dishes enjoyed by Victorians.
We are particularly interested in the Victorian Bakers series. As you may have guessed, our working kitchen at Charlecote has a bread oven and we have fired this up for special event days.
Charlecote is also very lucky to have a working flour mill in the village. Our friendly Miller Karl showed us around the mill and you can find out about it by visiting on one of their open days or watching our short video.
Victorian Bakers is on BBC2 Tuesday 12 and 19 January 2016.
