I met Nigella!
The lovely @janakarex (from twitter) arranged the whole meeting with PR at Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
The whole festival was amazing, and I will blog more about this soon as there is so much to write about. My good friend Julia and I had an amazing time. I can not wait until next year's event and Brisbane Food and Wine Festival in 2012!
So what was she like? She was even more beautiful in real life than on TV. She has beautiful skin, carrys herself well and has a lovely and sweet disposition (she must have watched a lot of Mary Poppins too)
I talked very briefly about how Domestic Goddess inspired me to bake only four years ago and now I love baking.
(The truth is: If I hadn't have turned into a baker I would not have started my blog, joined the wonderful Brisbane Food Bloogers Group and hence, Baked Relief would not have been formed.)
I gave her a tea-towel from Queensland as she writes in her most recent book Kitchen that she collects tea-towels from places she visits. I wanted her to have one from the area which benefited most from Baked Relief and she was genuinely concerned by what had gone on during the last few months as she had seen it all on TV.
That certainly was a birthday to remember!
P.S sorry about the extended links, blogger is playing up!
