Podcast 280: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Twenty-Four – Fanny Cooks For Christmas (1975)

by | Dec 24, 2020

The final door of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar inevitably reveals the terrifying spectacle of Fanny Cradock Cooks For Christmas. Our heroes both watch this monstrosity every Christmas regardless and it doesn’t disappoint. There are thoughts on hygienic food preparation, painting pissy leaves with melted chocolate and the best way to mix a Christmas cake.

But really, you’re all here for the same reason that we were: so settle down with a glass of something green, pop some mushrooms under your skin and crack open three dozen eggs as Edward and Ian do their best to convey the mighty mincemeat omlette in audio form. If you’d like to see it for yourselves, you can watch Fanny on YouTube here.

And that’s it! We made it! Twenty-four Christmas shows throughout this version of the lockdown, over twenty-four days. We wanted to take the opportunity to thank everybody who has subscribed to and listen to this podcast for tuning in.
