A little while ago, I entered a recipe competition with a variation on my jerk marinade, thinking ‘here goes nothing!’. Last weekend, I received an email – I nearly deleted the winning notification – I mean, what else do you do with emails which start ‘CONGRATULATIONS!’ and go on to tell you you’ve won something??
I was a bit gobsmacked, truth be told. I’m the sort of person who never wins anything – not even a colouring competition when I was a kid! In fact, the only thing I’ve ever won was a Blue Peter Badge (those of you outside the UK will have to look that one up!).
So, one day next week, I get to travel to a secret London location and spend the day enjoying a masterclass with one of my favourite celebrity chefs! How cool is that??
I’m so excited about this (does it make me a prize-winning food writer, I wonder?) and can’t wait to share all the details & photos with you all after the event!
