Better Homes and Gardens

Manu Feildel’s wife Clarissa is joining the show, creating quick and delicious meals with an Asian influence. Her first episode will be Friday week, April 5.


Colin Fassnidge said on Good Friday Appeal tonight that he had already filmed 40 episodes of his cooking segments, all in the kitchen of his family home. If I heard correctly, each week the crew came to his house on the Monday and left all the ingredients and filming equipment, shoot a number of episodes, then packed up on the Thursday.
