I got the the final 3 of Masterchef 2009 and narrowly missed out to Mat Follas - the deserved winner on the day (see his blog link below).
It was an amazing experience. See the 'masterchef 2009' post for my reflections.

Vietnamese supermarkets in Hackney - there's about 4 right here. they're cheap and stock great ingredients
