I Just Love It Pizza Making Event

Way back at the end of February I was lucky enough to be invited along to a Pizza making class with I Just Love It, a brand that specialise in personalised gifts. I know I'm a naughty blogger only just getting round to posting about the event but I didn't want to let the event completely pass me by without giving it a mention. 

So, on Thursday 25th February I hopped on a train to London & made my way over to La Cucina Caldesi to have a go at making my very own Pizza. I was greeted with a glass of Prosecco & fresh Focaccia to nibble on whilst chatting with the other bloggers before the class began. Once the chef, Steffano, was ready to teach us all the art of Pizza making we put on our aprons & gathered around the big table in the centre of the room. Steffano has some seriously impressive Pizza making skills, he made it look so easy! When it was time for me to knead my pizza dough into a circular base I soon realised just how tricky it can be, I needed a helping hand to get my pizza into shape. Next up was adding the toppings, I chose Salami, Mozzarella, Basil & a big helping of Rocket sprinkled on top of the Pizza straight after it was removed from the oven. I have to say sliding my Pizza onto the huge shovel thing (no idea what it's called!) without squashing it & then carrying it over to the ovens without dropping it was a nerve-wracking experience. However it was a really fun cookery class & I spent most of the evening laughing at the state of my sorry looking pizza, it did taste delicious though!
Once we had all finished our Pizza it was time to head home, but not before being given our goody bags. Included in the bag & in keeping with the theme of the evening was my very own Personalised Rustic Pizza Plate which is amazing, now I'm the proud owner of a plate that will actually fit a Pizza on properly! Other goodies I received are a Personalised Cushion Cover, Great British Chocolate Fish & Chips12 personalised pencils, a Cocktail-Inspired Candle & a Personalised Silver Plated Vintage Teaspoon. My favourite item has got to be the little teaspoon, it's so cute & perfect to use when I'm doing some baking. I also love that I got pencils with my blog name on, does this mean I'm a professional now? I Just Love It will be my go-to website whenever I'm on the hunt for a unique gift or something personalised of course. 
The event also gave me the chance to see some of the products available over at IJLI which had been displayed on the shelves (see below) - how good do the Letter Lights look? It's amazing how many things can be personalised, there is literally something for everyone.

A big thank you to the lovely Sophie for giving me the opportunity to attend such a fab event & for introducing me to the I Just Love It personalised gifting website. Here is the write up over on the IJLI blog if you fancy a read or a nosey at a few more photos from the evening.

  2. Oh wow this sounds like an amazing night! I think the teaspoon would have been my favourite goodie too, it's so cute and perfect for Instagram - a food blogger's dream! The night sounds like a good laugh, and anything that started with Prosecco and focaccia would be a winner in my books
