"I really enjoyed the evening and Gary came across very well, chatty, funny, knowledgeable and very entertaining."

"I thought he did great on MasterChef and I was really interested in seeing him cooking and hearing about his experiences."

"The food was delicious and surprisingly quick and easy to make - seven amazing dishes in two hours. I will definitely be trying out the recipes.​"​
