George in my kitchen....

I'm so excited!

TONIGHT there will be a celebrity chef in OUR kitchen helping our family cook up a storm. 

I've spent all day preparing the list that George sent me earlier in the week. I've chopped and sieved, measured and whisked. Tonight at 7.30pm George will help me and my kids cook Hazelnut Chocolate Pudding with Dark Chocolate Sauce, Candied Orange Zest and Cream Chantilly.

My kitchen is gleaming (I even cleaned out my oven and then couldn't get the door to go back on but that's a whole other story) All I need to do now is go shower and spend a little time choosing a cute yet practical outfit for this evening.

My heart is all excited and my cheeks are a little flushed. 

How has all this come about I hear you ask? Well I haven't been quite straight with you. George is going to be helping us whip up this chocolate delight this evening. Us and half of Australia. Tonight is a televised Cook-Along where thousands of kids around Australia will follow Georges instructions on tv and simultaneously cook and eat this dessert together! 

Our kids have followed the entire series of Junior masterchef and have become so much more adventerous and active in the kitchen over the last few weeks. They are so excited about tonight. If you want to read more about it you can follow this link: 

Maybe you will even join in. If so Happy Cooking! 

I will be back tomorrow to tell you all about it!
