Miele Cookery Experience at The BBC Good Food Show

What a fantastic day I had this past Saturday at the BBC Good Food Show!
I was invited by Steph at Miele along with other food bloggers Jules, Anne, Celine, Sylvie, Naomi, Nic and Sunita.

The Forever Better Team at Miele were all such a lovely bunch of people. We were all invited also to join in with the Miele Cookery Experience.
Miele have such a fantastic range of kitchen and electrical products that no other manufacturer can beat on both style and quality.
With us all being so interested in food the Miele Steam Ovens were our favorite product!

Ooooh but they also do an induction wok too
and I just wish I had a bigger kitchen as I'd be getting one!

Here's how our day went;
Firstly I was met by Steph from Miele and then I met up with Sylvie and Nic.

We only know of eachother because of our food blogs so it was really good to meet them in person at last! We all felt like we'd known each other for years. They are both such lovely people.

After everyone had arrived we went backstage for coffee and Gino D'Acampo, Dave Myers, Simon King (The Hairy Bikers) and Simon Rimmer just happened to be there too!
Of course, we took a few pictures but everyone chickened out of asking for their autographs!.....Why didn't we just ask?!


Below is Simon King (wearing the bandanna) Gino D'Acampo (standing with his back to us)Simon Rimmer and Dave Myres all having a good chat.

Serious conversation between Simon and Gino!



Then we were all taken to watch Simon Rimmer cook. All the lovely shiny kitchen appliances were by Miele.

Then we had time to walk around the show - me and Sylvie had a fine time sampling many different wines!
We kept saying 'I shouldn't think it amounts to a glass yet, so we'll be fine'!.....
Then we went onto taste 'Toffee Vodka' and again 'I shouldn't think it amounts to a glass yet'.....
and so on to the next drinks stand we went!


Here are a handful of pictures
of the different food stands:
I didn't take too many pictures as we were too busy drinking and having a good time!
Pickles and chutneys


Many different cured sausages and Chorizo sausage.

Cheese too!

Do I spy more wine in the background? - Missed that on the day!


Below, there was lots of gardening stuff there too and I want this!

Then after all that drinking - we went on to 'The Miele Cookery Experience' to cook in front of an audience with Sophie Michell.

First we were shown the absolutely fantastic range of Miele kitchen appliances.
Including a cooking zone with an induction wok, and a retracting salamander grill.
Miele steam ovens are just amazing - we all wanted one!


Then onto the stage and cook!
Here is Sophie who was heading the demonstration and we all had our own work space and followed what Sophie did.

We cooked Thai lemon sole, that was stuffed with crab meat and steamed in a Miele oven and served with green mango salad.


Below: Here I am concentrating!

Me, Sylvie and Jules with Nic (just behind) all paying attention to Sophie!

My finished dish!

Then, we all had a seat at the table to sample the food we'd cooked. But in true food blogger style, no one ate until we'd all taken at least 10 photo's of it first!

A huge thank you once again to Miele and especially Steph for organising such a wonderful day.
The Miele Cookery Experience was fantastic!
