The Robshaw Family - Further Back In Time

The Robshaw family leave their 21st century lifestyle behind them once again, but this time travel back a little further to experience what life was like for a middle-class Edwardian family.

Presented by Giles Coren and historian Polly Russell, the family discover how the transformation in what people ate helped form the modern family, following the changes in the British diet and the social etiquette that accompanied.

To help the Robshaw’s on their discovery, they are joined by servant Debbie Raw – a 21st century chef who is responsible for producing an eight-course meal in the utensiless Edwardian kitchen.

Whilst Debbie is trying her hand at buttering, the Robshaw ladies struggle with the social responsibilities that the 1900s held for a girl, and are challenged with hosting a formal afternoon tea before experiencing the Edwardian equivalent to a fondue set.
