Parties, nightclubs, cocktails, the Charleston and all that jazz: the Robshaws have arrived in the Roaring Twenties and – Rochelle aside – they’re loving it. “Why would you want to spend the afternoon doing this [cooking dinner] when there’s a drinks cabinet in the other room?” she grumbles as she wrestles with a recalcitrant roly-poly. I can’t decide whether Rochelle’s lack of domesticity adds to the entertainment or is simply annoying. Surely she knew cooking would be involved when she signed up?
The rest of the family are very happy, though, as they loosen their stays and indulge in behaviour that was completely unthinkable in the Edwardian era.
The Robshaw family enter the 1920s, sampling their first taste of the racy reputation of the decade as they host a jazz-age party fuelled by a menu of 14 different cocktails. The period has something new for everyone, with sweet treats for Fred, spicy food for Brandon in a 1920s curry house and the kicks and tricks of the Charleston for Miranda and Ros with former Strictly Come Dancing stars James and Ola Jordan.
