From Darkness Starring Ann Marie Duff,
Featuring By Request Canapés
Not for the first time By Request have been asked to help on a location shoot for the BBC.
When you get a phone call from a lady purporting to be a BBC member of staff who is looking for upmarket canapés to appear in a wedding scene in a series which is currently being filmed. They are needed for early the next morning, in a strange location the other side of Manchester, along with any suitable props that they could borrow! Sounded a bit like a “You’ve Been Framed” wind up. Even stranger when one of the main locations for the drama was Hollings Faculty where Carl (our catering manager) did his degree. All was to feature in a gruesome crime drama called “From Darkness”.
Sooooooo early the next morning the kitchen produces a veritable feast
Raw Fish Sushi
Baby New Potatoes Topped With Sour Cream & Salmon Keta, Avocado & Bacon
Blue Cheese, Pine Nut And Basil Barquettes
Thai Crab Salad In Endive Leaves
Vietnamese Pork Balls With Chilli Dipping Sauce

Apart from the marvellous canapés that feature during a wedding scene the 4 part series the story is set in Manchester in the present day with flashbacks to the 1970s, with other locations such as a remote Scottish Island. The camera work is stylish and the story is fast paced – reminded me a bit of Cracker which was also shot in Manchester. A good watch and a recommendation.Share this page ~
