My afternoon started in the food emporium of Fortnums, where I joined a select number of ladies to watch Paul Hollywood talk and bake Bread... In answer to many questions.. Yes he was exactly as you see on the TV, his eyes are very blue and he is the only person that can get away with calling Mary Berry "bezzer" in a scouse accent!...
Service was excellent and the food was delicious... Hawksmoor being famous for its meat dishes I opted for Potted beef & bacon with yorkshires, Ribeye steak and then peanut butter shortbread with salted caramel ice cream... All from the express menu.
Here is a small trailer. Judi Dench is one of my favourite actresses, along with Sheila Hancock and Helen Mirren and I am lucky enough to be seeing them all on stage in London during this year.The Dame met everyone of my expectations and more she delivered a dazzling performance and along with the rest of the cast received a standing ovation at the end.
Even though the weather was lousy the glamour of Theatre royalty and a small flavour of Hollywood made my afternoon complete.
