Hi Maggie, I adore everything you come up with on your show with the Chef. Have most of your books & just wish I could cook half as good as you. I will keep trying with your help.

Hi Maggie, I'm looking for a particular episode of the cook and the chef, but I can't find out which one, it had Ken Fox and his magic puddings in it, I think it was around 2007? I love the show, it rocks :) much like your pate :)
If anubody can tell me which season/episode I'm looking for that would be sensational.

Hi Maggie, some time ago you and Simon were in New Zealand and you visited a banana farm where amongst many other types they had :monkey bananas:
I live in north Qld and have bought these delicious fruits a couple of times. I'm wondering if you can tell me more about them. No one hear seems to know about them.

Hi Maggie, I just love the style of food you cook. Really enjoyed the Cook and the Chef series, and really loved your Chef's Christmas feature. Can't wait to try the Gorgonzola, pear and walnut dish. Cheers.

I also think Simon should have Celebrity Chef status. He is a creative and adventurous cook, and a generous and modest man who always give Maggie the limelight. She is wonderful too, of course, but I think Simon should also be allowed to star.

Just love Maggie on 'The Cook & The Chef'. Took me a while to really get into the show but now I love it. Got her new cookbook for Christmas so looking forward to trying many recipes.
