[edit] Information

The Sweet Makers at Christmas Four modern confectioners immerse themselves in the world of their professional predecessors, discovering how commercially canny sweet makers helped shape the way Christmas is celebrated. Guided by food historian Dr Annie Gray and social historian Emma Dabiri, the confectioners work their way through three distinct periods of history. As the 21st-century confectioners wrestle with period equipment and ingredients to make a series of sweet delights from the Georgian, Victorian and Interwar eras, they discover how sweet makers in the past spotted the commercial potential of Christmas and developed innovative festive products for an eagerly receptive audience. The Georgian era introduced the idea of consumerism at Christmas. In this period, Christmas was a thoroughly adult affair - alcohol, partying and over indulgence marked out festivities, The Victorian period sees the focus of Christmas consumerism shift. Gone are the hedonistic revelries of the Georgian period, Christmas is now a holiday much more centred around children. Christmas in the 1920s was focused more on shopping than ever before. The confectioners need to fill their shop with even more magical treats to tempt in customers.
