Dinner parties have never been so popular. Cookery books fly off the shelves as people look for the ideal recipe for entertaining at home.
In this series, we'll be looking at how our attitudes towards food have changed over the past half century. And it's thanks, in no small measure, to a small group of people: the TV Chefs.
From Fanny Craddock, to Graham Kerr; from Delia Smith to Jamie Oliver, it seems we're desperate to find a kitchen guru who will make us look like the perfect host and hostess.
A series in which Miriam Margolyes examines the UK's fascination with celebrity chefs, and their culinary influence over the past 50 years.
The culinary influence of Delia Smith - who taught a generation to cook through her books and programmes - and Keith Floyd, who revolutionised TV cookery when he left the studio to take food onto the open road. Both played a vital role in changing the British attitude to restaurants and cooking, and have many things in common, including journalistic links, an admiration for Elizabeth David and the fact they left school without qualifications
Fanny Cradock and Galloping Gourmet Graham Kerr, who shot to fame during the 1960s and 1970s. A look at how Fanny Cradock added glamour to a post-war Britain, while Graham Kerr became a worldwide success with his laid-back style.
The series about cookery on TV concludes with two TV chefs who started cooking at an early age. Gary Rhodes was 13 when he began, while Jamie Oliver was just 8.
