Daylesford, the organic farmshop emporium in Gloucestershire, kindly asked me to do a book signing of In One Pot.
After a sustaining breakfast of perfect scrambled eggs from the farm, sourdough from the bakery and an immaculately brewed flat white, I got down to a busy day of signing.
I was positioned between the buzzing cafe and the farmshop filled with the freshest organic vegetables from the farm, breads, cheeses and preserves, all made in the Daylesford kitchens and a kitchen shop to rival David Mellor.
Book signings are a lovely opportunity to chat to people, hear about what they like to cook and to experience general enthusiasm for cooking and eating delicious things.
All the books were signed and bought by enthusiastic customers by lunchtime, leaving me to do some shopping for ingredients before heading back to London, where I’m testing recipes for my next book.
