ME ON TELE!!!... TWICE!!!

I was lucky enough to appear on the Great British Bake Off Extra Slice in September 2017 with Jo Brand, Jonathan Ross, Kerry Godliman and none other and old blue eyes,  Mr Paul Hollywood! He said the enormous sourdough loaf was "fantastic" for the size and they enjoyed my funky flavours (well, most of them!!).  


I also appeared in the news in 2014, for about 3 minutes, but I was on Anglia, Meridian and Central - and they were only the ones that I heard about!  Shame about the mistake about the bread ingredients, see if you can spot it for yourself in this clip: Jo's Loaves Micro Bakery in East Anglia

FORGET 15, HOW ABOUT 2 HOURS OF FAME??!!
On Saturday, 11th August 2012, I was Live on BBC Three Countries Radio for Nick Coffer's Weekend Kitchen.  Here is the links to listen again...
