I recently have met through a mutual friend a brilliant guy named Pete who like me, was entrenched in the world of branding/advertising and who has since given it all up to cook and train professionally. I am lucky that since the show aired I have met some lovely people and have made some great new friends, Pete being one of them. We met over dimsum at Royal China in Bayswater (one the best places in London for truly authentic dimsum), where we both exchanged our stories aand dreams for the future. Pete is off to Leith's soon to train up - I think he will certainly be a name to watch as his passion, creativity and love of good food will take him far. He has a rather excellent blog too - go Pete go!!!
