Exeter Food and Drink festival

  
I'm there all day Friday. There's a 'cook off' with James Nathan on Friday night which will be great fun.
I'll mostly be wandering around talking to suppliers ... and hopefully be able to make an announcement regarding restaurant plans too !

  3. Hi Mat. I too wanted to send belated congratulations on your magnificent achievement in winning this years Masterchef. We were rooting for you pretty much throughout. I was a quarter finalist with James Nathan in 2008 (2007 really!) and aim to catch up with him on Friday, and watch you both in action. He's a great guy if you havent met him so you should have fun and suspect it will be good to get feedback on his last 12 months or so as a MC champ. Well done again mate. Andy Exmouth

    Great to meet you last week. As I suspected even nicer in person than on telly. Thanks for being generous with your time as well. Congrats on excellent performance in the cook off. Not the winning because its a bit of fun but on how well you handled it. I suppose after some of the things you did in MC finals not much is going to mpahse you but these things must be nerve wracking? You and james did really well. On which note if you get a minute would you mind sending e mail address to me at andy@ukvc.co.uk
    Thanks again Andy (exmouth)

  8. Hi Mat,
    Great win at Masterchef 09. We are 2 kiwi's living in Australia, and watched your talent from the beginning. Now there is some tension in our household, as we would like to know where you grew up in NZ, as I am from Wellington and my husband is an Aucklander. Please help!
    Loved your rabbit dish and again, well done.
    Cheers, Sandy

    P.S. How about a kiwi favourite .... whitebait on your menu?

  9. Hi Sandy ... sorry ... Auckland here (Devonport!) but did spend a couple of years in Maoribank. I miss whitebaiting on Devonport wharf ... nothing like it here I've found yet
