Posh Nosh



Posh Nosh is a short series of eight 10-minute episodes of a fake cooking show that originally aired in 2003, starring the always wonderful Richard E. Grant as the Honorable Simon Marchmont, a smug, stuck-up aristocrat, restaurateur, and cooking-show host. He’s a Downton Abbey villain with a subscription to Saveur and a thinly veiled loathing of his wife. His wife, Minty, is a name-dropping, middle-class social climber played by actress Arabella Weir, who also wrote the show.
