Local people of Harrow enjoyed an unforgettable cooking lesson when Great British Bake Off finalist, Chetna Makan, made an appearance at McCarthy and Stone’s Randolph House Retirement Living Plus development on Northwick Park Road last week.

The event included two live demonstrations, giving homeowners and the general public the rare opportunity to savour Chetna’s culinary skills.  The celebrity chef showcased two dishes, a white chocolate and pistachio cake and a carrot and banana cake, which guests sampled after the demonstrations; and everyone had the chance to put their home baking and cooking-related questions to the expert.

Stephen Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone North London, commented: “We were so pleased to welcome homeowners, potential purchasers and the local public along to our baking event at Randolph House, where celebrity baker Chetna Makan, did an excellent job at showing the guests her fantastic culinary skills.

“We’d like to offer our thanks to Chetna for coming along and entertaining homeowners and guests with her show-stopping bakes. At McCarthy and Stone we are committed to helping older people stay independent for longer. The event at Randolph House provided a great opportunity for retirees looking to downsize a chance to experience all that a McCarthy and Stone development has to offer.

Great British Bake off Finalist Chetna Makan, said: “I had a lovely day at Randolph House with the very welcoming team. I also got to meet some of the homeowners and guests who came to say hello and have some cake with me. I made lots of cake for the day, including chocolate orange cake, white chocolate and pistachio cake, chicken bake, carrot and banana cake, peanut cookies and lime drizzle cake. All the recipes were from my book 'Cardamom Trail' and it was great to share the recipes with the homeowners.”
