What better way to promote the new series of 'Step Up to the Plate' than a bit of live telly! A wonderful interview where we covered questions about SUTTP as well as the effects of Covid on the 

hospitality industry.

Taking to the world of Instagram live, I spoke to Oliver who is part of the ‘Pride in food’ community at Compass Group. The interview was the start of their series in celebration of LGBT month. We reflect on how far we have come as a society but also how much more there is to do in order to keep the progress moving forward.

Step Up to the Plate, Series 2

It’s Back, and hotter than ever in my kitchen! The new series of SUTTP is a belter - the standard and skills the Kitchen Crews show in Series 2 are a massive uplift and at times jaw-droppingly surprising: mostly in a good way but there are some spectacular boo-boos too!  Great telly – GAME ON!

Great news - a paperback edition of “Jolly Good Food”, my cookbook based on the food in Enid Blyton’s timeless stories, is going to be coming out on April 1st. Perfect for some lockdown cooking with and for kids. Check out the recipes for Moonface’s beloved Toffee and Silky’s Pop Cakes…complete with a proper “POP” inside! 

Jolly Good Food is (paper) back!
