Historical & Vintage Food Development for Television Productions & Publications

CulinaryConcepts partners up with Miranda Quantrill to provide bespoke historical and vintage dishes based on recipes of that era for the entertainment industry. We are fortunate enough to collaborate with the UK’s leading food historian Annie Gray who advises us on ensuring that all food produced is authentic for the era and visually pleasing for TV and film. Our attention to detail to adapt original historical recipes are precise and are designed to standup to the lighting and heat on set for filming.  Our experience working collaboratively also extends to publications, most recently with English Heritage to produce recipes for their Victorian cookbook "How to cook the Victorian Way with Mrs Crocombe" by adapting Victorian recipes for modern cooks and kitchens.

Ultimately, when developing recipes and dishes for each project, we find solutions in a timely way to meet the needs of the production team and cast in conjunction with working in specialised environments and buildings making use of all resources available. Please find below a sample of some of our past collaborations and locations which include British stately homes and manors.

If your production or publication requires food development from a historical era; from a banquet to a celebratory tiered cake to suit the historical century, please drop us a line here or give us a call on 07825730297 and we can discuss your exacting culinary requirements.
