I just started watching this series and I love the kitchen with all it's ovens, the copper pots and molds and the scale on the counter.
The service in the dining room is impeccable and I love the scenes that include the Silver room. I can't imagine keeping it all polished.
I watched an episode last night where the youngest daughter learned how to bake a cake and when they pulled the pan out of the oven, they had used paper inside the pan. I thought that was interesting. I was thinking baking with paper was relatively modern, but I guess I was wrong.

I love that show. If they played it again I'd watch every minute. I love it that everybody on the show gets there fair share - upstairs and downstairs. Can't wait for the next season to begin. I hear Shirley MacLaine is going to be the Countess' mother. Won't she and Maggie Smithe have a heyday?

Mary,
Thanks for the link! That was interesting to read all about the different uses for paper in cooking.

Just finished the first 2 episodes of Season 1 - I'm hooked! Love it. Can't wait for more. And the food does look delicious.

Laurie --
Downton Abbey on Masterpiece Theatre

Quote:
The Downton Abbey estate stands a splendid example of confidence and mettle, its family enduring for generations and its staff a well-oiled machine of propriety. But change is afoot at Downton — change far surpassing the new electric lights and telephone. A crisis of inheritance threatens to displace the resident Crawley family, in spite of the best efforts of the noble and compassionate Earl, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville, Miss Austen Regrets); his American heiress wife, Cora (Elizabeth McGovern); his comically implacable, opinionated mother, Violet (Maggie Smith, David Copperfield); and his beautiful, eldest daughter, Mary, intent on charting her own course. Reluctantly, the family is forced to welcome its heir apparent, the self-made and proudly modern Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), himself none too happy about the new arrangements. As Matthew's bristly relationship with Mary begins to crackle with electricity, hope for the future of Downton's dynasty takes shape. But when petty jealousies and ambitions grow among the family and the staff, scheming and secrets — both delicious and dangerous — threaten to derail the scramble to preserve Downton Abbey. Created and written by Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park), Downton Abbey offers a spot-on portrait of a vanishing way of life.
