BBC Good Food Show with Miele

Well, what a fantastic time we all had at the BBC Good Food Show on Saturday.

I was very kindly invited to go along again, courtesy of Miele (who are big sponsors of the show) by Lauren and Cherry from Miele's PR company 'Forever Better'.

In the above picture from left to right the other foodie people that were there:

Bronwin from Practically Daily, Cara from Gourmet Chick and Kits and her friend from The Cooking Forum. I'm on the far right.

We also got to join in the Miele Cookery Experience on stage cooking with Martin Blunos. It was fantastic, Martin cooked a baked scallop dish and we all followed him.

I'll post the recipe separately. The scallops were cooked in a rather fancy Miele oven - we all wanted one.

This is me and Kits cooking:

A rather funny photo of me and Martin Blunos; I was asking him if I had the right amount of butter on the end of my knife!

The end result - my scallops baked in their shells.

Each scallop shell had a different filling.

We then got shown Miele's amazing range of ovens. I am in need of the steam oven and their top of the range all singing all dancing oven too shown below!

This is their 'basic' oven but even that is amazing.

After lunch, we then went into the Super Theater to see Gordon Ramsay; he was brilliant.

The food show itself was just great. Everything from cheese to olives to coffee and sausages.

From haggis and buffalo burgers to every kind of vegetable and more kitchen gadgets than you could shake a stick at! The show was so busy; it was quite a thing to get around properly to see everything.

The Hairy Bikers were there again too:

It was too busy to get to take any proper photos. But once again I'd like to thank Lauren and Cherry and Miele for such a brilliant day!


  1. What a great experience you had at the BBC Good Food show.

    The scallops look so good :)

  2. Wow - you've been out having fun again! Really need to go next year - was just too busy again. They will do these things on Fridays and Saturdays.

    Holding a knife to Blunos must have got a laugh.

  3. Looks as though Miele have spoilt you again Jan - lucky you!!
    You never know Miele might lend you a steam oven to try out.

  4. Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Really cool stuff!

    P.S. you're lucky to have access to scallops in their shells!

  5. What a great day you had again Jan! I haven't been to the Good Food Show since they moved it from Earl's Court. I am not sure I would want to travel all the way to Birmingham, but it looks like you had a great time! Great looking scallops too!

  6. Jan, were you being cheeky with the Chef? lol

    Good to see you with your entourage of Foodies!

  7. What a great day you had, I love the photo of you with the knife!
