Dear Wild Cooks,
 
Taking time to smell the roses is always a good thing in my book, so when I was approached to M.C and do a cooking demonstration at the Harrogate Flower Show I was delighted…roses, chefs and all!!

Rob gets me involved in his demo!

Robert Ramsden was as passionate as ever about Yorkshire food and brought some wonderful local and international produce along for his demonstration.

My Great British Menu compatriot, Tim Bilton, showed us how to cook John Dory in a lovely springtime recipe packed with flavour, and even used his own brand of olive oil and wine!

I found some great foraging finds in a fresh patch of woods at Rudding Park which went down really well at the show.

Have you ever tried edible flowers? There are some great ones around at the moment, such as borage flowers, chamomile, and chives. Remember to always check before eating that they are edible and not a protected species.

Flower power…!!

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.

Andrew Pern, Nigel Howarth, Stephanie Moon and Tim Bilton

Pictured here left to right Andrew Pern, our mentor judge from Michelin starred Northcote Manor in Langho Lancashire Nigel Howarth, me with my white face of pure fear = Stephanie Moon,  and Tim Bilton.

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.

All three of us were hungry to do well, so you will have to watch the programme to see what happens!

Watch out on the Wild Cooks Blog for my Great British Menu and recipes next week!
