A Sheepish Hello!
Posted on October 8, 2018
Its been 4 months since I last updated you all and I am so embarrassed!! But its all for a good reason as I have been so unbelievably busy! Whilst I have a moment to breathe I thought I would tell you what I have been up to:
In June I had the best time at BBC Good Food Show Summer where I worked with the gorgeous Chris Bavin on the Summer Kitchen Stage. We had a lot of laughs and I managed to (sort of) get the whole audience singing ‘We’re All Going On a Summer Holiday’ (even though I was leading it, and forgot most of the words!)
Fantastic Food Festivals at Wimbledon Park was a great day out and my expressive demo face was back again (insert face palm!!) Great to catch up with Steven Carter-Bailey, Dhruv Baker and to meet the gorgeous Mira Manek.
Historic Royal Palaces Food Festival at The Tower of London was amazing! Literally amazing! I have never worked at or even been to a food festival at a more iconic setting. I love the history of Henry the 8th and I actually felt like I had stepped back in time. Big thanks to Marcus Bean for being a fab compere – even if he did continually eat my ingredients!!
I was back judging at The World Bread Awards for the 4th year and this time I was on the ‘Great British White’ category, which was a very interesting and delicious one! Was so lovely to catch up with some foodie friends and we even found room to fit in some dinner!!
Oh and check out my lovely friends Chetna Makan and Frances Quinn as they tell the world they agree with me about which way you should prepare your scone!
Thame Food Festival was just unbelievably brilliant! Its a very busy show for me – I had the first demo and then I had pretty much back to back demos to compere, but I loved every second! See more on my facebook page here:
I have been lucky enough to try out Sacla’s pestos, Iceland’s Christmas Range and Vegan Range, Whisk Dessert Pop-Up and Konditor & Cook’s new Autumn Range. I’ve written more articles for The Metro, I have judged Which? Magazine’s Christmas Puddings (for the second year running) and I have featured on BBC Radio Berkshire’s ‘Eat With Your Ears’ Show. And you can read my interview with Tiny Table about where I like to eat out with my family, here.
Also big thank you to The Cookery School at Little Portland Street for having me along to their bread making class! Highly recommend them for informative classes in a great central London location.
And that is just the stuff I can talk about! Lots going on behind the scenes too. Make sure to follow me on Facebook, instagram (especially my stories) and twitter for all of my latest news! There is LOTS to come – including many more competitions.
In the meantime, its October, which means my twins’ 10th birthday, my son’s 13th birthday and Bar Mitzvah and mine and Mr P’s 15th wedding anniversary!!!! Lots to look forward to 🙂
Be back soon
