BBC Good Food Show Summer: Live Blog

welcome gfs 01

It's that delicious time of year again - where we head to the NEC in Birmingham and take up residence with the Tesco Real Food stand at BBC Good Food Show Summer! We're here for the whole show from 12-16 June, so if you're in the area or planning to attend do pop by and see us.

On this warm and sunny Thursday our Online Editor Celia joins us live from the show to share some mouthwatering updates.

**This post will be updated regularly throughout the day, so stay tuned for more news {most recent at the top} **

The Great British Bake Off - Tesco Supertheatre

One of the great draws of the BBC Good Food Show - in addition to the amazing variety of food and drink on offer - are some of Britain's top TV cooks and celebrity chefs!

This year we're proud sponsors of the Supertheatre where earlier today we caught Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood baking up two delicious treats.

Mary demonstrated a lovely orange spiced cake made with pulped orange and sugar peel. Paul's bread creation was a savoury brioche couronne - a twisted french loaf made with proscuitto, mozarella and basil.


Paul gave away signed wooden spoons and cookery books to a few lucky ladies in the audience (granted as winners based on the most enthusiastic waving and squealing they could possibly muster!)

The Great British Bake Off returns on BBC One in August. We can't wait!

Cookery demo: moroccan lamb pittas

Throughout the day today our Real Food cook Lisa Marley has been demonstrating a variety of mouthwatering summer recipes on the Tesco stand, including these aromatic mini moroccan lamb pittas

Lisa's top tips:

To peel a piece of fresh ginger efficiently, rather than using a regular peeler (which has a reasonably thick blade) simply apply the back of a spoon to the skin in a scraping motion.

Halve and slightly open your pittas breads before placing them in the oven - this makes it easier to stuff them when they're warmed through.

These little lamb burgers in pitta pockets are served with a cooling tzatziki and fresh rocket leaves - perfect for a summer evening barbecue or quick but satisfying supper.
