Older cooking programmes

Older TV Cooks and the first programmes on the box. .....

I still have the Farmhouse Kitchen book from years ago when I used to love watching Dorothy Wolstenholme in her Yorkshire Country kitchen. No glossy pictures just plainly written recipes where you had to use your imagination as to what it looked like !
Another was the Galloping Gourmet, Graham Kerr , at the end of each programme he used to rush into the audience and pick someone to share the meal he had cooked.... Who do you remember other than Delia?

I also have that Farmhouse kitchen book and use recipes from it on a regular basis, I used to enjoy those programmes. I also remember the Galloping Gourmet, used to watch his prog. in my dinner hour, my dad liked him too. It was so novel in those days. Saw a few of Fanny Craddocks programmes but remember her more for the way she dressed and insulted her husband than for her recipes!

I used to enjoy watching Robert Carrier too and remember a favourite dinner party recipe when I first got married was from one of his cookery books.

I used to like John Tovey from the Miller Howe restaurent in the Lake District. I bought one of his books and often used to make a creme de menthe cheesecake from the book in the 1980's. I think I must have taken it to a charity shop in a mad moment of clearing out which I now regret. His recipes were really good.

John Tovey

My husband and I went to the Miller Howe for our Silver Wedding anniversary, we are now coming up to our 53rd! John Tovey was still there then and as I had had his first book sometime before this visit I was thrilled to see him come into the dining room each evening to ask diners how they had enjoyed their meal. I had taken my book with me and he signed it and the beautiful menus from each evening. I had them framed and they are still in pride of place on our kitchen wall. I loved his books and used lots of his recipes, a bit too rich for me these days though. I believe he retired to S.Africa.

That's a lovely story Nenna. His recipes were rich but they were lovely for a dinner party. I really wish I had not got rid of his book!
