help send me to Argentina...



... i'm gonna keep this simple and straight to the point... I need your votes... yes, I know I've been hounding you quite a lot recently for your love but this one is totally selfish... I WANNA GO TO ARGENTINA so click HERE and vote for me NOW and get all your friends to vote... and their friends too...

... let me explain...

... as you know i've done a little blogging recently on behalf of Ainsley Harriott Foods... it wasn't exactly hard, the produce was great and the hamper they sent me was lovely and hopefully I made some food that was worthy of the blog and something decent for you all to read that didn't feel like I was selling out too much... and the guys from the company, please with my work, invited me to participate in something very special... the #soupsearch...


... five nervous food bloggers arrived early at The Cookery School in the heart of London... there was me, of course, plus Rachel, Tash, Chris and Leemei ... on entering the building they were greeted to the sight of 5 closed hampers, containing the secret ingredients from one of 5 international destinations... they would have 30 minutes to cook something impressive from that country... impressive enough to influence hoards of facebook voters to vote for their recipe... all under the watchful gaze of the master himself - Ainsley Harriott... we have been promised the trip of a lifetime to the country of our hamper if we get the most votes... plus, on our return to the UK we get to go up to Symington's, where they make the soup and help make a new soup based on our culinary travels and learnings... how amazing is that?


... it was a fantastic day... I met some wonderful food bloggers and had an absolute blast with Ainsley, who is just as 'larger-than-life' in real life as his persona is on the TV... he's also has a completely filthy mind...


... if you haven't worked it out already I got the hamper marked ARGENTINA which was a little shocking to be honest and wasn't all that inspiring, with just potatoes, tomatoes and kidney beans for me to play with (alongside a fully stocked larder and some meats of my choice)... the other bloggers got a lot more ingredients with a lot more to choose from but I didn't grumble... too much... and decided to make Manchego stuffed Argentinian Beef Burgers with Chimichurri Sauce and Spicy Fries...


... and now all I need are your votes... I've never been to South America and if I win i've been promised a culinary journey i'll never forget... so if you feel like sharing the love do go to the special facebook page you can see us in action and vote for me there... there's also a chance for every voter to win a trip to Marrakesh... so there is some incentive at least!... I hope you like the video from the day, we did have a blast and I think it shows!

... I thank you... and promise lots of fabulous recipes and a wonderful giveaway or two to my dear friends...
