It is taken me to the age of 51 to bake my initial cake and the tension was on as I was rustling up a single of Joe Wick’s new recipes – to be taste analyzed by the man himself.

But does the person with 11 cookbooks to his name ever have a kitchen catastrophe as I usually do?

He smiles: “Oh yeah, I’ve burned loads of matters in excess of the many years.

“Even the other day I bought this charming steak from the butchers – a 28 working day aged Himalayan rock salt steak.

“I was accomplishing reverse searing, where you put it in the oven for fifty percent an hour on a small warmth, so it cooks as a result of wonderful and carefully, then you just whack it on the grill for a moment both facet.

“But the oven was far too very hot so it finished up like roast beef – I ruined a seriously great bit of steak.

“So even soon after 11 cookbooks I can make a very simple blunder like that.
