Every once in a while I receive emails that really excite me. In recent weeks I’ve had several that have caused me to almost hyperventilate. These are the ones I can tell you about. Others will have to wait for another time.
Danie, a freelance journalist, emailed me a while back asking to come along to one of my Secret Tea Room events. She wanted to chat to me and my guests about The Secret Tea Room and the Underground Supperclub movement that is so popular in London, but is gradually and slowly moving it’s way North
Kerstin arrived with some goodies for me that she’d made, such as Strawberry and Champagne Jam which was delicious in its fruitiness and Champagne flavour and some of Kerstin’s homemade ‘Mauvaise Maman Salsa Asado’ which we had for dinner the next day. Her Mauvaise Maman Gooseberry and Gin Jam’ will be enjoyed in the coming days.
Kerstin was also in Leeds to promote her new Book ‘Supper Club’ and was very happy to sign a guest’s copy and mine too.
So listen to BBC Radio Leeds Breakfast Live on
Tuesday Morning 10th May now Now to be shown on Wednesday Morning 11th May around 7am and you will hear the clinking of Cups and slurping of tea and lots of chatter from my guests.
As a result of another exciting email I received only a few days ago, from the very nice people at Radio 4, you can hear Kerstin and I talking to the lovely Jenni Murray on Woman’s Hour on Friday 13th May – no I’m not superstitious, at around 10am live from Manchester.
That, for now, is all I can tell you about. The rest is being kept close to my chest, after all this is the SECRET Tea Room.
