Hi me again, this week we’re travelling back through time to Queensland in 1900 to find out how a dropped sponge, a sweltering summer, a bowl of warm chocolate and a mad French Chef stumbled on an Australian gastronomic legend, still enjoyed today! This is the first of promo of the up and coming series on the History of Food in Australia called Tucker Down-under.
Many thanks to the crew and cast of Tucker for this pilot footage (there’s s shot of them all on You Tube) – with particular thanks to Les Herstik (DOP) and Ben Kopilow (Stills).
Well so far so good guys, we’ve only got another x6 programs to now script, pre produce and shoot.
The Tucker Down-under pilot piece shown here was filmed at Hillview Sutton Forest, the original Summer residence in the Southern Highlands of the NSW Governor General – thanks Damien for your patience and help, and what an amazing property. You can also stay on this property and see the amazing gardens and where we filmed this sequence in the original kitchen and dining room. See you next week, cheers, Steve.
