By now I’ve written my elaborated post about the whole experience with Sam at RingCon (Panels, autograph and photo session). The content of that post here got fully integrated in the longer post and there is much more stuff, so you might want to head over there right away. I will keep this here as a place holder to keep the lovely comments.
Sam is a definite GBBO fan ! He was rooting for Flora on twitter and commiserated with her when she went out of the competition. At one point he asked her for baking lessons but she didn’t take him up on the offer – the mad fool! If he popped to Yorkshire I could teach him how to make scones!!!!!
Now that you mention it, I think I even saw that tweet. Darn, could have led in my question even more directly. But it was a very cool moment either way
What a great moment that must have been. Sam is a generous man with his answers and yes I know that intense stare when he is concentrating, shows great intelligence and respect.
Thank you for sharing.
Susanne you lucky little GBBO watcher! Just too bad you could not have exchanged a one pot recipe or ask for his recipe on porridge. Which I have never had in my life. Thank you for tell us this wonderful experience you were lucky to have with Sam.
Thank you. The way Sam totally got into the whole topic and started chatting away, really helped to put my mind at ease about the whole “OMG, I’m standing here in front of 1000 people asking Sam something about a cooking show!” experience. :)
Thank you! Next time (hahaha) I might just remember to ask about the porridge recipe. Don’t remember ever having eaten that myself either…
