Back In Time For Dinner

About the Show

BACK IN TIME FOR DINNER (6x60) follows one adventurous family on the time-travelling journey of a lifetime as they take on iconic trends in food, design and domestic gadgetry, beginning in the 1940s. Guided by host Carlo Rota, each week the Campus family from southern Ontario will live through a new decade of Canadian food and domestic trends.

The Campuses are embarking on a unique challenge, giving up their modern diets and ways of life for six weeks to find out how the changing world has dramatically affected eating habits and domestic lives over a 60-year period. Their own suburban home will be their time machine as it’s dramatically transformed in every episode to reflect the style and sensibility of a new decade. Every detail will be considered from décor and technology to food and cooking tools.

In their modern lives mom Tristan, a registered nurse, and dad Aaron, a multimedia designer, share domestic responsibilities, including cooking and raising their three teens: 18-year-old Valerie, 15-year-old Jessica, and 14-year-old Robert.

Their journey through time will see the whole family struggle with the social roles and rules of the past as they explore evolving gender dynamics, changing technologies, world events and fashion.

Evocative, nostalgic and rich with detail, BACK IN TIME FOR DINNER offers a glimpse into Canada’s past, through the unique 2018 perspective of a modern family on a singular adventure through time.
