Jenny Hammerton learned to cook from the glittering screen stars of yesteryear. Many years ago, in a dusty, stamp and postcard collectables shop, she stumbled upon a vintage celebrity cookbook. This chance find would change her life.
The manic collecting began, and her celebrity recipe archive now numbers over 7000. She probably won’t live long enough to try all these dishes, but she’s going to give it a good go. Movie star recipe successes (and failures) have been documented on the Silver Screen Suppers website for over a decade.
A graduate of the UEA Masters in Film Archiving course, Jenny has worked in film archives for over twenty years. She adores her job and is currently working with the British Movietone cinema newsreel collection.
Jenny lives in Muswell Hill, North London with her DVD box set of Columbo.
Columbo super-fan, Jenny Hammerton, offers an episode by episode guide, focusing on the food and drink which are so prominently sprinkled throughout the greatest television detective series ever made. She guides you through cherry-picked, episode-specific recipes and suggests ways to make your Columbo dinner party, the talk of the town.
