California Prune Blogging Event 7.7.17

I was over the moon when California Prune invited me to my first official blogging event last Friday, It was at a big event in London so it was a really big deal to me and I was so excited! The event took place at Kensington Olympia as part of Just V Show, Love Natural Love You and The Allergy & Free From Show.


The Blogging Event was an exclusive opportunity for bloggers to meet the CP Brand Ambassadors and nutritionists, get tips on how Prunes can support a healthy lifestyle, sample new recipes, a free goodie bag and a Q&A session with the CP Ambassador chefs.?

Rosemary Shrager, Peter Sidwell, Peter Cook &?Danielle Davey.


I really loved all the invaluable tips from the chefs & watching them be silly on stage. Rosemary?& Peter Sidwell are great to watch cook together, are really entertaining & informative. I loved watching Peter give great tips about his amazing bread and it was great talking with Danielle as she’s almost my age & very into health like I am.

The vegan-friendly food I tried was the gorgeous sourdough bread & Chelsea buns. Who knew how amazing they could be by adding prunes! A revelation! Take a?look at?this?video of Artisan baker Peter giving you some great tips on adding fruit to bread.
