Neil the fishmonger extraordinaire came in to prepare the freshest and most delicious seafood. Mel was her usual fabulous self; an absolute tv natural. Lovely to look at and a warm, engaging host, and it goes without saying, a talented chef. (Did I get that bit right Mel?) We met the delightful Emily who was assisting Mel with the prep. for the shoot. Emily is one of this year's Masterchef contestants, so you will be able to see her in action next week. We had a really good time, and I advise you all not to miss out on one of Mel's classes if you get a chance to attend.

After these 2 events, I feel educated, entertained and exhausted! It is always a pleasure to hear May King speak on her special topic so don't miss out if you get the chance!
