Potters Bar family win cookery class with celebrity chef

A POTTERS Bar family received a masterclass in cooking from a celebrity TV chef, after winning a county-wide radio competition.

The Phillips family – mum Denise, dad Paul and daughters Chloe, 11, Amy, nine and Kristina, five – were named the Heart Breakfast McCain Family of the Month.

They had entered a competition on the radio station offering cookery-loving families a chance to make and decorate the ultimate Christmas Yule Log with former Ready Steady Cook regular Antony Worrall Thompson.

The family, from Mimms Hall Road, received expert guidance from the award-winning chef during a lesson at London cooking school L’atelier des Chefs, and highlights of their experience will be broadcast on the Heart FM Hertfordshire Breakfast Show, where the Phillips’ will be joining host Daniel Fox live on air tomorrow (Friday).

“It was fantastic,” said Denise, on her family’s cooking lesson.
