On the Menu for "The Anniversary" – Episode Five, Second Season


This post was archived from the original website for Fawlty Towers Revisited, which premiered on public television in 2005.

Food certainly played a key supporting role in Fawlty Towers. So we thought it would be fun to provide you with the “menu” for each episode, as well as links to recipes for such.

In addition to picking up some ideas for your holiday entertaining, we also hope you will find plenty of inspiration for that perfect menu to share with your guests at your very own Fawlty Towers Revisited watching party.

Much to the dismay of Fawlty Towers’ chef, Terry, this episode gives Manuel his big chance to get into the kitchen and cook his special paella dish for Basil & Sybil’s 15th wedding anniversary.  Unfortunately, only one of them will be there to celebrate in this episode, first broadcast on March 19, 1979. And what a spread to party with!
