Jill’s excellent organisational skills really come into play in her longstanding relationship with the BBC Good Food Show. Over her career, Jill has worked with many of the well-known TV chefs at Food Festivals and on TV shows and has worked as a Home Economist at the BBC Good Food Show for several years.
During the show, Jill manages one of the live cookery theatres. It takes meticulous planning to organise all the ingredients and equipment for some of the country’s top chefs and to ensure that all of their demonstrations go smoothly.
Jill sources ingredients for their recipes, some of which can be very unusual and also makes sure that they have all of the equipment that they need for their demonstrations.
Then there are the Hero’s, the ‘Here’s one I prepared earlier’! So, if for example the chef is making bread, Jill will prepare it in up to 5 different stages for them so timing and preparation is crucial.
Jill’s role also involves managing a small backstage team who help to get everything for the demo on and off the stage as seamlessly as possible including ingredients, equipment and of course the chef!Back to clients
