I am very lucky to have a Friday night lined up with Simon Wood – the Masterchef champion 2015! Well not personally – he is just doing the cooking 😉 Along with Shelina, Simon is my fave Masterchef winner and it’s an added bonus that he is local so I actually get to try his food! I am a Masterchef obsessive as many might know but this is the first time I have had the opportunity to have a winner cook for me!
We originally booked tickets for this event last year and it was supposed to be held in November but there were issues with the venue not being ready. We did attend a smaller event though where Simon served some of his dishes canape style and then answered questions and came round for a chat. He actually is as nice as he came across on Masterchef – it’s not all editing 😉
Expect a full review with photos this weekend!
The menu we have to look forward to.
