Cocktails in the bedroom on the ironing board
Rachel McCormack, evil door pixie, being filmed by BBC Moneywatch crew. She even tried to make my neighbours pay to get in the house! Her: it’s a fiver to get in. Neighbour: But I live here! Her: Oh allright then.

Supperclub hostesses Mama Lan and Baby Lan
Mama Lan getting to grips with the Aga. She gave a demonstration of freshly made chinese dumplings which everybody shared. I did a foccaccia demo, but don’t have pix of myself doing it…so if anybody has some…
Making fresh halloumi
@handyface prepping the halloumi…it was delicious, will write more on this. He made it over the course of the day, then we tasted.
Astrologer and writer Neil Spencer talking about the links between astrology and food, holding a copy of Culpepper. There were alot of Librans in the room, who, when they go to a restaurant, are more concerned about how it looks, the table settings, the plating than the food. He ran through the charts of some of the top chefs: Gordon Ramsay, a fiery Scorpio; Jamie Oliver: an adaptable Gemini, with great communication skills.
My own underground muesli for sale
Balcony: It’s alive! Carolyn and Laura, ex Pogo, home made sauerkraut and kimchi. Fermented food is very good for you.
House of Chutney. Met these former supperclub hostesses at a Euroburners event (the European branch of Burning Man attendees)
Terence McSweeney showing how to make a basketry fish
The Shed’s mum, those dolls are toilet roll holders! She made my teen have one!
Marcia Vidal’s jewellery in the shed
Isis imaginings in the shed, demonstrating how to make cards…
Little girl wearing Little Miss Delicious’ doughnut hair clip
The obligatory burnt Aga offering, something I left in after my demo
Bar in the bathtub
A nice little present was left by my bedside at the end. I ate the cupcakes in bed!
200 people and 38 stalls. People came from Leeds, Norfolk, Warsaw, Wales. The sun shone. I learnt to put up a gazebo. There was a bonfire. The demonstrations went brilliantly, people crowding around to taste, to learn, to listen. I did my first live cooking demo. Stallholders made friends. We met people from twitter in real life. Lots of food was scoffed. My brother got really drunk. A BBC crew spent hours filming. Giddy with triumph, I ended up talking complete bollocks about my plans to take over the planet...”me for prime minister” I think I said, propped up by the Aga. I think it will be screened in July.
More pictures to come…(but many of mine didn’t come out…too darn rushed off my feet)
Other accounts of the day:
Brilliant, wish I could have been there. Who's the cute mixologist? 😉
Everything looked so amazing!
Would you mind if I post a few of these pics on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/littlemissdelicious)?
Obviously I'll credit you in each of them 🙂 x
Yeah everybody was asking that …
lmd: sure…credit and copyright msmarmite
Wow. Wow. WOW! xx
Sarah, Maison Cupcake
Looks like a brilliant success, I was kicking myself when I realised I was away on this weekend as I definitely would have come over. Can't wait to see it on tv. When's the next one?!
Did you happen to get any of me at my stall? No worries if not… Ta
This was well worth my trip down from Leeds. I met some lovely people, ate some delicious food,took home some delicious food.I enjoyed the demonstrations and made some new friends. A truly enjoyable day.
Looks like a fantastic day. When will it be on TV?
Kavey: the one I took of you is one of the ones that didn't come out, must have pressed a button wrongly when running about….
The Curious Cat
It sounds like it was an absolute hit! So sorry to have missed it! I broke my foot recently so housebound somewhat! Sorely upset that I missed out! Hope you all did well from it! xxx
congratu-effin-lations! this is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. it looked like a gorgeous day- what a success. x shayma
It was a brilliant day – Thoroughly enjoyed the seeing the goods we spent so long preparing appreciated, meeting new people, discussing food stuffs, etc. etc.
And WHAT an organiser!
Once again, Ms Marmite Lover leaves us amazed with one of her events 🙂
Wow. It looks like it was a Fantastic day. Very innovative. I love the whole idea, the atmosphere must have been wonderful.
PS You should have delegated and got someone to play Photographer. nevertheless I'm impressed.
Scarlett the Heavenly Healer
Loved it! What a great day for all of us. I think I had the best spot in the house with constant sunshine for most of the afternoon.
Thanks for being brilliant.
Congrats – this looks absolutely incredible. Can't wait to see on TV!
but they are not your pictures for you to take credit for, surely little miss delicious should be crediting Gavin, at least for the pictures.
Always a nasty one isn't there? I took the picture of little miss delicious…
All looks fab- well done you! And also when's it going to be on the telly then??
I was there and it was FAB! I really hope you do it again sometime
What a fantastic idea! But I need to ask you – weren't you worried about stuff being nicked from your home?
Looks like everyone had a brilliant day!
Did the stallholders make money? There's so many barriers stopping people doing stuff like this, so it's good to see a bit of community spirit taking over rather than rules and regulations.
Alison: I think I'm immune to the whole concept of strangers being in my home. It's become a live museum, a site specific theatre. No I don't worry about it. I don't count the dvd's after the guests have gone. There's nothing to nick really. Unless you are a bit horrible and actually, you know what, most people are nice.
Jenny: exactly…from stickittotheman productions…
Congratulations – looks like a fabulous time was had by everyone, what fun. I look forward to hearing more about the Haloumi.
Fab day to be part of. I've written about it on my blog
I just came over from "a fork full of spaghetti" this looks so amazing – and it must have been such hard work… but I am inspired to do something in my own locality all the same!
Brilliant day, Kerstin – such fun, and great to meet so many people. Thank you!
More pics up on my blog: http://aforkfulofspaghetti.blogspot.com/2010/03/uks-first-underground-market.html

This is absolutely amazing. What a brilliant thing you all did. I wish I had been there. Bloody well done.
Revolutionary! Keep on keepin' on an' on an' on!
