A few weeks ago I was asked to create a recipe that would be suitable for a uniformed professional to celebrate the launch of the Uniform Foodies App. I made a Warm Goat’s Cheese Salad with Walnut Soda bread, and got chosen as one of three finalists to cook for Michael Caines MBE, the Michelin starred chef who is the face of the Uniform Foodies app as well as writing the recipes for it. I have to admit I was a mixture of excited, and absolutely terrified to be cooking for such a talented chef…little old me who just cooks for her children…
But I did it!
Michael seemed to genuinely like my dish too.He even said he wants to use my dressing recipe.
Along with two other bloggers Alida and Vicki, we had what turned out to be a fun cook off.
It was lovely to meet Vicki from The Freefrom Fairy who made a delicious Malai Kofta Curry, I am definitely going to trick my sons into thinking they’re eating meat with this dish. My mouth is watering thinking of it.
I also met Alida from My Little Italian Kitchen who cooked a tasty Mediterranean Lemon Chicken Salad with Rosemary New Potatoes. My daughters have put in their order for this dish! I could not get enough of those lovely potatoes.
Alida’s dish was Michael’s favourite though and she will now be heading off to Michael’s restaurant Gidleigh Park in Devon for what promises to be a fab meal and night away!
Michael showed us our recipes on the Uniform Foodies App which was very exciting, along with a quick browse at all the other recipes that Michael has created for it. So for just 69 pence you can get 15 of Michael’s recipes.
In the end after all my nerves I had a great day, Vicki and Alida were lovely and Michael was very easy to chat to and didn’t laugh at my dish at all…phew!
Check out Vicki’s post about the day which has a great video on it that she made whilst Michael was announcing the winning dish.
