As you can see from the picture above Mary and I were reunited this weekend at the Good Food Show in London. This is one of my favourite events of the year, with an incredible array of amazing chefs, food producers and new products to sample. Bez and I were on stage in the Super Theatre baking together, which as usual was really great fun. The audiences all weekend were amazing, so a big hello to anyone who came to see us. Hanging around backstage was a who’s who of the cooking world, and it was great to catch up with fellow chefs and foodies, including Michel Roux Jnr, John Torode, James Martin and Antonio Carluccio. I am gutted the weekend is over, but I will be back at the next Good Food Show in Birmingham in a couple of weeks, so looking forward to doing it all over again then.
I am starting to get really excited about Christmas now. It’s one of my favourite times of the year and I LOVE all the Christmas baking. Keep an eye on the website, as I will be adding some festive recipes over the next few weeks.
Talking of Christmas, if you haven’t already bought all your stocking fillers then check out the shop on my website. We have some hilarious T-shirts, as well as calendars, and soon we are adding some kitchen accessories, ideal for any baking mad relatives!
I can’t believe we are already halfway through Pies & Puds. I really hope you are all enjoying it as much as I enjoyed making it. There are still loads of great guests and delicious recipes to come; including the creator of William and Kate’s wedding cake Fiona Cairns, the ladies of the Chippenham Truck Stop, and a pina colada pudding topped with a miniature Paul Hollywood! So keep on tuning in.
Bye Paul x
