About the Series

The Best Laid Schemes is a 5 part immersive, cooking program inspired by the lands and lochs of Scotland. Created by the James Beard and Emmy® nominated Chef Studio and featuring a score by film composer, Katharine Petkovski, the series aims to bring back the magic and wonder of cooking.  Each episode features the creation of one fantastical dish inspired by Scotland’s beautiful landscape, history and culture.  Viewers are led, step by step through the creation of a dish with each episode culminating in a final, cinematic plating scene.  To create an immersive experience for the viewer, stop motion animation, projection mapping light effects, post production VFX and LED screen sets and backdrops were used in the creation of the series.
