Outlander Kitchen on TV

Beyond the Books

I hosted a TV crew from a local station in our little house last week! They came to film a short about Outlander Kitchen, and I’m over the moon about what they put together!

I’d love to hear what you think in the comments!

And now, without further ado, I present “Cooking Food from Fiction” from Shaw TV Duncan

    That was fabulous. I love what you do and am very grateful that you share so willingly. These are my favorite books as well and I love that you have found a way to help me (truly all of us over the top Outlander fans) enjoy the series more fully. Keep it up. 🙂

    This was so cool! Congrats…..and now I need to try some things. Hubby is out of town this weekend and so when he comes back I thought we would have a late Valentine’s supper…and he wanted to make some soup next week…so…Gypsy Stew should satisfy him….and maybe the oatcakes and some scones for dessert….

    Wish they would have this on my PBS station. I also wish I could have some of that stew! Keep up the great work. Hope to make it to Scotland one of these days, would like to go with other Outlander ladies.

    This production is marvelous, Theresa! Even though I’m not a hard-core cook, it’s bloody fascinating and inspirational. I’m going to share it with my FB friends.

    That was fantastic Theresa! You’re a natural. Would love to see a weekly show come to life…but I suppose that would defeat the idea of a simpler life. Many Blessings.

    Great job Theresa! You were awesome. I love your recipes and have made many for friends and family who all love them. I am thinking about making Mrs. Graham’s chocolate biscuits cut into heart shapes for Valentine’s Day. Keep up the good work!

    Well-deserved accolades for Teresa Carle! I am an “Outlander” fan who is also an avid “Outlander Kitchen” fan. Knowing the fiction behind her recipes makes it all the more fun to dive headlong into making them!

    Sweet! I’ve just curled up in bed after carefully pitting all the cherries left from my batch of Cherry Bounce. Checking emails before reading a couple chapters of Outlander (AGAIN!). Your video was the perfect wind down to what’s been a busy day.

    Brilliant! DH was standing behind me as I watched. I think you piqued his interest because he asked “do you follow her blog”. Of course I do! I think he wants that stew! I do too! Thanks for all of your hard work even if it is a labor of love. We all benefit from it. I can’t wait to try your recipes. Especially Brinna’s Bridies!

    What an unexpected treat! Browsing TV between Olympic events and I found you! Missed some of the programme, but intrigued enough to search out your blog…and discovered another Gabaldon fan, big time. Have loved her books since the Outlander came out, met her at SiWC Writer’s Conference in Surrey and teased her about getting the Frasers exactly right! Would love your book and although I’m a new blogger, I’m a mature writer so will follow you as I can. Do you ever get over to SSI? Would be great to connect.

    Thank you so much for doing all the wonderful recipes! The Outlander series is my all time favorite as well. So happy that you have brought some of it to life for us all. The interview was fun to watch too!
    I would love to have an actual cookbook if that’s in the works. Best of luck to you and I look forward to many more tasty meals!

    Loved the TV piece. I tasted the gypsy stew at a So Cal Outlander beach picnic. Verra tasty.
    –Can’t wait to read “Dagon in Amber” it must be that new collaboration with Herself’ and friend George RR Martin. OK fandom, you saw it first at Outlander Kitchen. Joke
    Keep up the great job, yummmm.
