As you read this I'll be basking in the sun (hopefully!) in Wales with my folks before I head back to London to present my first ever Weekend Kitchen show – I'm so excited and I can't wait to get cooking!
To get myself ready I've been and had another break at my friend's place in the Languedoc. You may remember that last time it was more of a working "holiday" than a rest, so I put my foot down this time!
That said, I've still helped out on the tidying up front – here's a lovely pic of me shifting a wheelbarrow full of grass, weeds and brambles that we'd cleared away. We also built a path using limestone from the local quarry.
But it wasn't all work, work, work, thank goodness! We also took some time out to enjoy the thermal waters of Rennes-les-Bains. The one thing I still have to do is visit and old friend who lives near Toulouse who I haven't seen in six years – doesn't time fly?!!
So anyway, more about the Weekend Kitchen! Be sure you tune in at 10am on Saturday morning to catch me presenting the show for the first time. As you know, I'm very much into my food, so it's pretty much my dream show!
I'd love to hear from you during the hour, so please email any questions, comments or challenges to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll name-check you on the air!
Can't wait to see you all on Saturday!
