I have some news.. Well you have probably read me going on about it on Twitter already but here’s the official news:
I’m an official blogger for the BBC Good Food Show
I am so thrilled to be a part of this community. It means I get lots of good things like sneaky peaks at what’s going on behind the scenes at the shows and you get good things like discount codes and today a special ticket giveaway.
A rather great photo of an enthusiastic looking Michel Roux Jr that I took at the 2012 show:
First up let’s tell you a little more about the show I am going to be attending next in Birmingham NEC from June 12th – 15th 2014.
The Supertheatre – this is a regular feature of the BBC Good Food Show and is home to live cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs such as John Torode, Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry, James Martin, Tom Kerridge and Gennaro Contaldo. I’ve had front row seats for one of the Supertheatre sessions previously ( Saturday kitchen live) and you really do feel like you are in the thick of it. We even got to sample some of Pierre Kaufman and James Martins creations and sup on some wine passed over by the lovely Chris Evans. An afternoon to remember. All general admission tickets get a free seat in the Supertheatre but some sessions are extremely popular so book early.
The Producers Village
Sample the many delights on offer in the producers village, home to the very best artisan producers selling oils, cheeses and meats to fudge, Gin and chutneys… I was like a child in a toy shop the last time I visited and there are so many samples you feel slightly full before you even get to the next part.
The BBC Good Food Kitchen
This is a new feature of the show where you can enjoy dishes inspired by recipes from the magazine with matching wines. Delightful.
Booking is essential for this.
Bakes and Cakes Village
It’s all about the cakes in this section of the show, from tips and advice to demos and supplies. It would be rude not to visit.
BBC Gardeners World Live
You gain free entry to Gardeners World Live with your ticket so you can roam freely between the two worlds.. Want to find out which flowers are edible from Mary Berry or how to flavour your meat from James Martin? Then visit the chefs kitchen garden.
There is a lot more I can tell you but for now let’s get to the best parts…
Just for you here is a 20% off discount code: Use MB20 online or by phone and do it quickly as it expires on 30th April. To buy tickets click here
I also have TWO pairs of tickets to give away:

My favourite biscuits are Tesco Finest Free From Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies. It’s so nice to find a biscuit that doesn’t have gluten in but is just as yummy as ‘proper’ biscuits. I have to ration myself!
By the way, i love your pic of Michel Roux Jr, I have a photo of myself with Monica Galetti taken at the good food show a couple of years ago. She was such a sweetie, she was just leaving a book signing and I asked if she minded me taking her photo. She told me to give the camera to one of the security guys so I could be in the picture too!

Brand ones then you can’t beat McVities millk chocolate digestives, but for homemade it has to be chocolate chip cookies 🙂
