So yesterday ( 7th July ) off we trotted to the LACA Main Event at the Birmingham NEC.
Now I haven't cooked in competition for years so was a bit apprehensive but everyone there was great to get along with and made me feel at ease.
We had an hour and a half to recreate our paper entries and plate the finished product!!!
After the stressful 90 mins the judging for my heat took place with bake off legend Jo Wheatly Great British Bake Off Winner 2011!!!!
Unfortunately we couldn't stay for the results and I'm notgoing to lie, the wait had me on tenterhooks all day.
But finally at around 4pm I got the call saying I'd made it through to the finals in September!!!
So here it is... My Pina Colada Sandwich!!!
Huge thanks to everyone involved at LACA and knorr taste!!
See you in September!!!
Recipe to follow!!
