Fashion on Friday: Lipstick All Over

I’m a sucker for anything with a lipstick print motif! It’s perhaps unsurprising that I was drawn to Silly Old Sea Dog’s Luscious Lipstick Dress like a moth to a flame. This was a little present from me to me at The Festival of Vintage in York back in April, at which I splashed the cash on a few beautiful … Read More

The Goodwood Revival 2017 PICTURES

If I am completely honest, I am still very much recovering from all the fun we had over the weekend at The Goodwood Revival. Yes, the weather was appalling but that did not spoil the shopping or the baking in The Kenwood Kitchen Theatre! My menu this year was inspired by all things Italian – a Tiramisu Cake and Sicilian … Read More

Serving Up La Dolce Vita at The Goodwood Revival 2017

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be back in The Kenwood Kitchen at The Goodwood Revival 8th – 10th September 2017! The theme this year is Everything Italian so you can expect to be served up a little slice of La Dolce Vita with me each and every day of this fantastic event. My recipes are still being tweaked … Read More

2016 Review: Part 2

It’s been a big year. Lately, in discussions with friends, I’ve found myself saying “terrible globally, great professionally.” I’ve almost felt guilty for admitting to myself that it’s been a pretty good year – in spite of tears shed in front of the news channels on more than one occasion. It’s been such a big year that I had to … Read More

Good morning, you gorgeous lot. I am back! After the most wonderful weekend in Edinburgh at the last Foodies Festival of 2016, I am home. As it happens, I am now home for a while as that is it for shows this year. It has been the most incredible year – I have met so many of you and travelled … Read More

Weekend Bakes: Take Some Time to Relax

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve been posting later and less regularly than I like to this week as I have been under the weather! It was always in the post and, as it turns out, the post-Goodwood lurgy was delivered right on schedule… and kind of put a dampener on my week. Enough of all of that moaning! It kicked … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Roald Dahl

Apologies for this post coming to you so late in the day! I’ll not lie, I’m cream-crackered after the most wonderful weekend at The Goodwood Revival. I was baking all weekend in the Kenwood Kitchen and you can see loads of fabulous photos of the fun we had on my Facebook page by clicking here. All weekend, I have been … Read More

I’ll Be in My Trailer…

I just HAD to show this off! This year I have taken glamping to a whole new level and have my own trailer for The Goodwood Revival while I am here with Kenwood… … well, I think of it as my trailer. You may think it’s a little more My Big Fat Gypsy Goodwood! Just a little something silly to kick … Read More

Weekend Bakes: Reviving a Classic

It’s all go here at the moment. The car is being packed to groaning point with some of my favourite frocks, more shoes than I need, and more hats than I can conceivably wear in a weekend! Yes, I’m heading down to The Goodwood Revival. I’ll be back in the Kenwood Kitchen (on the High Street next to Tesco, for … Read More

2015: Oh, what a Year!

I wanted to write the obligatory ‘end of year report’ – even in the first week of the new year – for a couple of reasons; the first is to say a massive thank you to a whole load of you at once! Thank you to everyone who bought a copy of Deliciously Decorated last year. I put my heart … Read More
