‘I was really sure we were going to win Pat over with our entertainment and quality food. I’ve always felt that I’m a fairly decent cook although I did struggle with the pumpkin – it was so hard to cut! I’ve done a really similar sweet mash with swede and carrot, which is really nice. I think I prefer that to the pumpkin mash plus it’s available all year whereas pumpkin is seasonal.
I couldn’t really say why we didn’t win, Pat seemed really pleased with the food and the other girls did a great job of keeping Pat entertained while I was cooking – I guess he must have just had a thing for the boys!’

‘Sausage, Potato and Pumpkin Mash was not something I’d made before – well at least the pumpkin part. Although I was slightly dubious to begin with (having previously believed that pumpkins were used simply as Halloween decorations): the sweetness added by the pumpkin was really nice. I’ve tried it since with butternut squash, which was also good.
It felt good that Pat was pleasured by our sausages – I’ve experienced Sarah’s cooking in the past so I was quite confident despite a few hiccups during the cooking. At the end of the day I think it really worked in our favour that we’re such good hosts and I feel that we were the deserved winners!’
