Just like at the end of the Titanic, when the movie flashes back to the golden good times of the glorious ship, my mind often flashes back to the days when my Grandparents owned a wonderful pub and B&B on the seafront in Cromer, Norfolk. Just like the way Rose’s memory takes us along the decks of the ship with the friendly faces of the staff greeting her, I think back to the bar, kitchen, halls and bedrooms of The Bath House, along with the various bar staff, waiters and waitresses and of course my Grandparent’s welcoming faces.

Over the weekend we took The BBC Good Food Show on tour to the luxurious Westfield London Shopping centre – bringing a selection of our favourite producers, the very best talent and a little taster of the magic we create with our shows. This post will take you back stage to see what goes on behind the scenes and give you a glimpse of the goings on in the green room!
Our first meal in Florida was had at Caddy’s on the Beach, a five-minute stroll up the beach from our house, which was a great start to the holiday. I had Applewood smoked bacon, poached eggs, fresh farmers market tomatoes, rye toast and lots of freshly squeezed iced orange juice. My boyfriend’s eggs Benedict looked particularly good, and I was seriously envious of my brother’s Son of a Beach Burrito!
I had been to this kitchen before, and have wondered at the amount of gadgets, the shiny equipment, the mountains of spices and exotic ingredients and rows of the sharpest and most stunning knife collections I have ever seen. The only thing that’s been missing is the person to which this kitchen belongs. Yesterday I met my friend Deniz’s dad, who LOVES his kitchen, food, cooking and his homeland – Turkey.
We were there for a Sunday night BBQ after my boyfriend and Deniz had finished a long afternoon of American Football playing and coaching. I had been to Deniz’s family home before for BBQs but this time it was different – his awesome Dad was there. I think we were both as excited as each other about meeting each other, both having our passionate attitudes towards food having been discussed at length when the other not there. This BBQ and Kamil’s passion met all expectations!
Now, for the details of this amazing Turkish BBQ… lets start with the BBQ itself – a huge fire pit with grills that slide apart to enable you to tend to the coals, big enough for a feast and complimented by all the BBQ tools you could possibly need.
