We popped into the Hotpoint Design Centre last week to hang out with actress Lisa Faulkner and get some cooking tips for the festive season.
Sipping a raspberry and ginger bellini we settled into our seats for some home made prawn saganaki pie whilst Lisa demonstrated the recipe on her Hotpoint appliances.
Lisa told us she can’t cope without her mini chopper, food processor or kitchen maker which is especially important for ‘on demand cakes’ for her daughter and cling film and piping bags are her absolute essential kitchen items. She also told us her food heroes are Mary Berry, Delia and Nigella the latter she said adored so much so she curtsied her when she met her.
Here’s what’s on our Christmas wish list; an espresso machine to help us as we stumble from one party to the next and a juicer for next year which, we promise ourselves every year will be more wholesome!
