I have decided to hang up my “spurtle” and stop doing public food demonstrations.
I shall continue to pursue my passionate interest in beneficial lifestyle change and do my best to explain myself to whoever will listen.
My first public demonstration was a crepe suzette for a young couple at my father’s hotel in Sussex, England. I had a story to tell as I cooked tableside and a dish for them to taste. I even got a good tip!
At fifteen year of age I had my appetite whetted for more!
Today my rough assessment allows me to say, with confidence, that I have done at lease two thousand public demonstrations, including one thousand episodes on television.
I have loved every moment and am amazed about how good it feels to have a story to tell and a dish for someone to taste…and enjoy.
The in-between times have not always been easy or fun but the moments during which the meal takes shape has been magical (at least for me!)
