Lords & Ladles is an original factual entertainment format that takes the viewer on a historical journey to celebrate our past through the wonders of food and the glories of cooking.
The series features three of Ireland’s finest chefs: Derry Clarke, Catherine Fulvio and Paul Flynn, who are as oddly complimentary as the original Top Gear trio, with egos to match.
Each week the chefs arrive at a Great Irish Country House to recreate a grand dinner from its history, a 17th century banquet to celebrate the completing of a tower house, or a 19th century hunt dinner. First they draw lots to determine the division of labour – one will Gather the ingredients, one will Cook, and one will get to Dine with the Gentry.
This format merges food, cooking and history in a fun and innovative mainstream format that appeals to all ages and provides perfect family viewing.
Lords & Ladles is distributed by Fremantle Media.
Supported by the Broadcast Authority of Ireland and investment incentives for the Irish Film Industry provided by the Government of Ireland.
