England and New York. They're absolutely honored and delighted! The weekly program airs on Cape Ann TV in MA. They wish to thank Erich Archer, Lisa Smith, Jim Capillo, and everyone at Cape Ann TV for their hard work and support.
All Things Victorian was the creation of business, and life partners, Lisa Griffiths and John Grant, both published authors. John Grant is also a professional photographer. His book Final Thoughts- Eternal Beauty in Stone is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or can be ordered from your local book seller. John was working on book number two about Civil War Letters, many from his personal collection, when he put his career on hold to help Lisa launch her gourmet nut business, which is based on her Victorian grandmother's recipe.
That Nutty Redhead is a unique kettle steamed (not roasted/fried) process of almonds & cashews in 4 mouthwatering flavors. Sales are brisk, stores continue to be added, and Whole Foods is interested in the nut product.
All Things Victorian covers all aspects of the Victorian era, such as food, fashion, literature, architecture, and much more, from 1837-1901. The Edwardian era, circa 1901-1910, a branch off of Queen Victoria's tree, is also touched upon during the series.
