My ‘Around the world’ Supper Club @ The Union, Leeds

I was much more apprehensive leading up to hosting my second supper club than I was for my first one. There were logical reasons behind this though.

My Masterchef Audition Experience! 

I didn’t for a second think I would hear anything back after sending off my application form to be on the TV series Masterchef (UK). My ex-housemate Angela, who got me addicted to the show, sent another application form to me insisting I applied. I’ve never had any aspirations to be on TV but I…
