I don’t get out much, well with three kids and a childminder who leaves at 6.30pm there isn’t much room for wild nights and dinners out. I do occasionally get invited to foodie events but mostly I turn them down due to all the above. All the babysitting stars aligned this week when I was invited to an event hosted by Walkers Crisps featuring Tom Aikens. I turned up at my friend Gordon’s and threw my kids at him with a bag filled with pizza bread and wine then ran before he could change his mind.
I turned up at The Natural Kitchen running a little late, I grabbed a cold glass of Sancerre, which I was immediately told by one of the staff goes really well with the Garlic Pitta Chips. Ok fab. It did in fact they had paired the wines perfectly with the chips and canapés that were created for the evening. Tom created a hearty posted up Mac n Cheese. Great evening and the 2 giant bags of crisps lasted about 4 nano seconds when I turned up at G’s to collect the kids, nuff said!
I leave you with a little video of Tom and some more info on these yummy snacks!
