I happened to be looking on the internets for good food documentaries to watch when I came upon part 1 of this interesting doc from 2012 done by BBC.
Its called Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and sees host Clarissa Dickson Wright takes the viewers on a culinary adventure to reveal the origins and development of our three daily meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It’s really really interesting and a good couple of hours if you have some time to kill.
Produced and directed by Paul Tilzey, Clarissa uncovers a story of lost traditions, culinary discoveries and extraordinary excess for all of our traditional three meals.
It’s a U.K. presentation so it looks at things from a European perspective, but its just good clean entertainment.
Clarissa Dickson Wright, from St. John’s Wood, London (24 June 1947 – 15 March 2014) was an English celebrity chef, television personality, writer, businesswoman, and former barrister (the youngest person to be called to the Bar at the time). She was best known as one-half, along with Jennifer Paterson, of the Two Fat Ladies television cooking programme. She was also one of only two women to become a Guild Butcher. The Butcher’s Guild in the UK is a fraternity of meat professionals bound by The Oath to sell good meat.
