‘If you love wine, follow Susie & Peter. Legends and the best in the business.’ Laila Rouass, actress and keen amateur cook.
When it comes to telly and radio, it’s a privilege to be able to work with so many talented, brilliant people constantly finding new and exciting ways to put food and drink on the airwaves and screen.
Along with Susie, I’m a regular wine presenter on BBC1′s Saturday Kitchen, reaching up to three million viewers, with our wine recommendations often selling out as a result. Other TV credits include:
I’ve created a short compilation of clips from my appearances on Saturday Kitchen, which you can find by clicking on ‘Saturday Kitchen’ on the menu (top left). Here’s a taster clip for illustrative purposes (filmed at the London International Wine Fair in London’s Docklands in May 2012, working with a cheeky James Bond theme…)
