Downstairs at Downton Abbey
This time on America’s Test Kitchen, we interview Lesley Nichol, who plays Mrs. Patmore, to get an insider’s take on the food of Downton Abbey. We’ll be tasting whole wheat pasta, and we’ll travel back in time to discover the origins of Peaches and Cream Pie. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make the best grilled pork chops. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.In This Program
