told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Sarah and I set out to showcase our
town and the great local food and drink produced here in Somerset.
We hope that this came over in the final edit. They were filming
from 7am to 2am on our day here in Burnham-On-Sea, this was cut
down into a 45-minute programme. Between us we must have spent a
month volunteering on the programme."
added: "We couldn't have done it without the people who helped
us out; Bee, Mandy, Kay, Juliet, Sarah & Richard at Berrow Beef,
Steve at Seafoods, Julie at Flowers & Things,Jane & Tanya,
Duncan at Charlton Orchards, Kelly at The Wine Shop, Patrick at
Riverford, Jacky at Wraxall Wines and Debbie at The Retreat."
the social media comments about game playing by some of the competitors
have amazed us; no doubt it made for better telly. They offered
us an opportunity to represent our region's food and we aimed to
do that as best we could. Such a shame they cut all the product
names. What we learned is that everything definitely isn't as it
seems on TV."
added: "We still haven't had time to watch the cook-off episode!
We hope people enjoy the next stages of the competition as the cooks
have to prepare food for more and more people in ever more challenging
circumstances. We will be cheering on the other southwest teams
from the sofa."
