I went to MasterChef Live - Thanks to Plenty


When an email arrived asking if I would like to go to MasterChef Live it took me all of a microsecond to reply with a YES PLEASE!!!!

I was given a ticket to the event by the lovely PR's who look after Plenty Kitchen Towels.  I met John, Greg and Monica and had the most awesome day.  I also got to cook on the MasterChef Live stage which was terrifying but totally awesome at the same time. LOL

Greg who is nearly always smiling

Monica who is really lovely when she's not in the kitchen - she is really!

I also met the hilarious and delightful Juan Sheet (whose name is actually Kevin) the Plenty Brand Ambassador and star of their TV ads.

Yes Juan/Kevin is really tall, I'm also rather short LOL
I also had a chat to Micheal Caines who is the award winning Head Chef at the two Michelin starred Gidleigh Park in Devon as well as executive chef at The Bath Priory hotel and Director of ABode hotels.
Micheal Caines was a very charming chap.
I had a chat to Tim Kinnaird as well, who was runner up of MasterChef 2010 and is now proprietor of Macarons & More.

Yes Tim is VERY tall! LOL
Master Chef Live is a fantastic event and I totally recommend going along to see all the fabulous food stalls, meeting chefs and product producers and of course eating loads of quality food.

There are also loads of opportunities to see top chefs in action and learn loads of cooking techniques and tips.

Thanks heaps to Plenty for the best day out I have had in a long time!
