Do you ever have one of those moments where you wish you could sink into the ground? 😱
This one happened quite a few years ago, but after The Little Paris Kitchen TV show had aired, I felt I needed to do something a bit different. I’d never worked in a Michelin starred restaurant, so I got in touch with Magnus Nilsson, who was the head chef at Fäviken at the time, and I flew to Sweden from London and rolled up my sleeves to get stuck in.
I’ve never in my life felt so nervous.
I’d done The One Show live to millions of viewers – not a problem – but this was so scary.
One night I absolutely ruined one of the appetisers, just completely faffed it up. Magnus looked at me in silence. Then he said: “OK, next course, let’s move on.” And we did.
Has your 2022 been Michelin star-worthy so far, or more like a flattened tray of appetisers? Here’s to a better next course as the summer solstice approaches 🥂
