Hi Tom! Have you ever seen the BBC series "The Victorian Kitchen?" I watched on You Tube. I'll bet NONE of your contestants couldn't hold a candle to 75 year old Ruth Mott if they had to work with a wood burning stove and Victorian recipes and utensils in a period kitchen! In the last episode (#8) what she did with that pheasant was nothing less than spectacular...the roasted lamb leg and turbot weren't too shabby either. Won't you please consider doing an entire season of having the chefs make, improve or whatever historic Victorian/Edwardian recipes to see what their talents is really made of? You'd have MANY history buffs watch the show as well! The loser of the quick fires could be the scullery maid (in 1600-1700) they had male sullery maids too! As far as sponsors go, maybe GE doesn't make wood stoves but there are a lot of kitchenware, building suppliers and such who provide Victorian styled products for new homes. I bought my tin (actually aluminum) kitchen ceiling from M Boos Inc. right here in the Cleveland area! Please think about the challenge...perhaps the master chefs might like to test themselves too!
