Q&A with Lotte Duncan at BBC GFS Summer

We spent some time with the wonderful Lotte Duncan at this year's BBC Good Food Show Summer. See what she has to say about her guilty foodie pleasures below!


What would you say is your signature dish?

Syllabub Trifle topped with rose petals.


Who, what or where provides inspiration for your cooking?

The chefs I interview at the Good Food Show!


What advice would you give to aspiring cooks or chefs?

Be prepared to work hard - very hard.


What is your favourite comfort food or guilty pleasure?

Jacket potato, crispy on the outside and fluffy in the inside, and - on an occasion when absolutely no one is watching - chicken and mushroom Pot Noodles.


Do you have any tips for getting kids interested in food and cooking?

Right from day one, get them involved in everything from rolling out pastries to stirring. It's all about osmosis!


Describe your dream dinner party menu:

My first course would be prawns dripping in garlic butter sauce, then a well-cooked massive lobster and, for pudding, blood orange sorbet. Then some cheese!
