Fairy invited me to a Clean Your Own pop-up restaurant at the OXO Tower in London's South Bank on Saturday. Michelin starred chef Michael Caines was cooking lunch.
There was a catch though, I had to wash up afterwards. Turns out it was a small price to pay.
Here is the menu:
I chose the lamb. It was amazing.
As was the shepherd's pie,
and the veg.
For dessert I had the apple plate. The apple mousse, in particular, was out of this world.
Here I am with Michael Caines:
Here he is with Luschka from Diary of a First Child:
It was lovely spending the day with Luschka and her adorable daughter, along with Domestic Goddesque, Mellow Mummy and Jamie from The Life and Times of a Househusband and their lovely families.
Here is Jamie demonstrating his househusbandly skills in the Clean Your Own challenge. He took 16 seconds to wash up.
I managed to wash up in 15 seconds and won a year's supply of Fairy Platinum washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. Go me! Actually, go Fairy. The sink was full of washing up liquid. All I had to do was agitate each item and it was clean.
Huge thanks to Fairy for inviting me, it was a super day.
Before heading home I met up with The Moiderer for coffee. I've known her online for ages so it was great to finally meet. She'd had a tricky day, but I hope I was a reasonable distraction. I think we could have talked for hours without either of us pausing for breath!
