Dear Wild Cooks,

What an experience, what fun! It was amazing to be a part of the Great British Menu and many thanks to the crew for making the whole experience truly memorable.

I want all my Wild Cooks to have the recipes and I have included a few tips and inspirations along the way to tell you how each dish came about.

It is a monster blog but probably best to be digested as one piece!

Overall, I thought what the judges said was fair and in some cases very kind. It made my day when I heard Prue Leith comment about my cooking ability, Oliver Peyton’s vote and Matthew Fort’s comment on the lamb ‘being wonderful’. Nigel Haworth too was full of constructive criticism and also praise which was very grounding and kept us three chefs motivated throughout the week.

I hope you enjoyed my week and enjoy the rest of the series!

What a line up my fellow Wild Cook! This is as scary as it gets, cooking with two fellow Yorkshire based Chefs in the Great British Menu.

What a week! I hope you get chance to watch and enjoy the programme, it was full of culinary fun and some scary moments.

I do not think anything can prepare you for the challenge. Firstly cooking for Nigel Howarth and the pressure you feel cooking for a true Great British Menu mentor, and secondly the really tough competition with the other Chefs.
