Having hosted Master Chef semi finalist Wayne Sullivan at Brew & Bake last week to cook his dishes from the show it reminded me of a few things.
1: My telephone interview a few years back for Master Chef. I don’t remember much of the conversation I was driving (hands free) and was obversely going somewhere more important then to spear 5 minutes to talk about who was my cooking inspiration (I started telling them some reality show story about standing on a stool watching my nan etc etc etc….).
2: An old blog post I wrote about how to cook like a Master Chef.
You don’t have to be a member of Mensa or be able to complete the Times crossword to figure out the answer to this. If you haven’t worked it out yet or its on the tip of your tongue the answer is….
It’s too late for Pimms o’clock? it’s now half past gin.
I’d never class myself as some one who is “Bang on Trend” (Young peoples speak for “of the moment”) but I originally wrote this post about my love for gin for my old blog (pre Brew & Bake) 3 years ago. The only thing that dates this post are the brands mentioned. With gin now “Bang on Trend” and in the Cotswolds alone having some great producers of gin, Siblings / Brennen & Brown / Cotswold Distillery why wouldn’t you jump on the gin train?
Away from cooking I love films and of all the films I’ve watched (which are a lot) I know 5 of them line for line: Days of Thunder, Top Gun, War Games, Escape to Victory & Cocktail. I don’t have a thing for Tom Cruise but during the 80’s & 90’s he made some cult movies.
This first blog post was supposed to be our “Hello & Welcome” to our new website & blog. For the last two years we’ve had a website (albeit not very good) but now you can order lunch, buffets & cakes directly from our website and read our blog about what we’re thinking & what’s going on.
But as I’m writing this on my way to London Coffee Festival I thought I’d combine the two.
