Have you been watching my new show ‘Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook: London’ on the Good Food Channel in the UK? You’ll be able to catch repeats throughout the summer. And lots of recipes featured online, such as this one.
After previously filming my first television show in my very small apartment in Paris (we even had to store the camera gear in my mini bathtub), it was nice to work in a slightly bigger space when we filmed the London series!
When we weren’t out and about exploring some of London’s most eclectic foodie spots, we were lucky enough to film in a lovely house on one of my favourite London streets – Columbia Road. Here are some behind the scenes snapshots from on set:
The house had such beautiful light. Makes it so much easier to shoot in. I loved sitting by the window in the sun to work on my illustrations.
The show’s overall theme was to share my real notebook. Wherever I go, I’m constantly jotting down notes and little drawings, so that I can use them as inspiration when I sit down to start my illustrations.
We transported lots of my kitchen bits and bobs to the film set, to use throughout the show.
During filming I do my own hair and makeup. Here’s a sneak peek into my makeup bag and wardrobe.
And it was fun dashing to and from the studio all around East London on my bike! Hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek into the filming process. And have fun watching the episodes!
