Jimmy (left) kicked things off by introducing Paul Kelly (right) a bronze turkey breeder, he's in the guinness book of records twice, as the fastest turkey plucker and the fastest turkey carver!!!after the demo of how to cook, carve and make a leftovers recipe, Jimmy asked if anyone would like a turkey! I got chosen along with 3 others to go up on stage! Then we were told that Paul did great turkey impressions, OMG that's what we had to do, and frisky turkeys too, both male and female!!!! Talk about embarrassing, lets just say Jimmy asked if I was married and told hubby he was a lucky fella! Then the audience got to cheer for the best, and I must admit I got the biggest cheer by far!!! So that's the turkey sorted for christmas all we need to get are the veggies etc nice one, thanks guys!! We also each received a signed book from Jimmy and Paul.
another demo we had was from Galton Blackiston who is a chef from our neck of the woods, I've seen him on the tele and not really liked him, but he wasn't too bad. another demo was from James Wong (Grow your own Drugs) he made a bath bomb and a cream for excma (sp?) I felt a bit sorry for him as they seemed a bit disorganized when it came to him, but he admitted that he is used to filming in front of 1 camera and 1 sound man and not a big crowd bless him.
During the sitting and waiting around (on my bale) we spotted the arrival of James M so I nicked off round the side of the stage along with a couple of others and called him over to sign my books, bless him in total he signed my 2 books, my lanyard, my Cadogan & James bag (which I got from his deli in June) and his new book which I purchased after his 2nd performance. I think he looked the best I have seen him, mmmm....... yummy...!!!we had dems from a local Master Chef runner up and a chef who runs one of Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' restaurants.
Gennaro Contaldo was hilarious, he came on with sunglasses on and started to do a strip, all the time there was banter from him and James, it was sooo... funny!
James with his famous spun sugar! a piccie of me and my fantasy husband lol!
Right now onto some cards which I've not had time to put on here.
This one is too late for the Papertake Weekly challenge but thought I'd show it anyway
