When firebrand restaurateur Keith Floyd was approached by keen young TV producer David Pritchard, few realised they would create foodie history. Filming was an irresistible blend of unpredictable chaos and unforgettable adventure – but the real passion was always the cooking. And when David discovered Rick Stein, he knew another star was ready to hit the screens.
David Pritchard tells his brilliant and hilarious personal memoirs in a live talk using footage, outtakes and littered with personal comments from the famous chefs he has created, Shooting the Cook is a taste of just what it’s like to be on the road and behind the cameras with some of TV’s greatest celebrity chefs.
He started his career in TV as a vault porter at a regional studio and began working his way through the ranks. His easy style and confident creativity have made him the number one name in food and lifestyle television production.
His style combined with effusive warmth are evident in the programmes he makes. The TV series French Odyssey with Rick Stein was dreamed up over a well lubricated meal and sketched on a napkin, yet only David’s style and flair could have made the programme the huge success it proved to be.
David is a raconteur and accomplished after dinner speaker. His hilarious tales are drawn from nearly thirty years of living and working with the nation’s favourite foodies and all that that entails. His talks are always entertaining and like his programmes they paint a wonderful picture of places, food, friends and future plans.
‘The drama, the comedy, the farce, the tales behind the television series which changed the way we view food and cooking on TV. David Pritchard speaks with the same brio and sharpness with which he directs’
