FAST 5 with Natural Harry – Harriet Birrell
What couldn’t you live without in the kitchen?
The blender and food processor for sure! Oh and a good frypan!
What is your most memorable meal and why?
I once made a huge Sunday spring feast for 20 of my closest friends at home with recipes from WHOLE. That would be one and Sunday lunches at my grandparents in general. They were a regular extended family gathering growing up and I hold very fond memories of them.
What’s your worst kitchen disaster?
Haha, I get to pick just one? Definitely leaving the lid off the blender by accident. Smoothie – EVERYWHERE!
What would you want to eat for your last meal?
Really, really good vegetable goyoza.
The great coriander debate – yes or no?
