• Your Gorgelous Project

Designing and creating Pierce Brosnan’s wedding cake was amazing – it had to taste as good as it smelt as good as it looked. The icing was flavoured with orange blossom water and I created extra tiers in case any were damaged in transit to Ireland.

Inventare e creare la torta per il matrimonio di Pierce Brosnan è stato entusiasmante, doveva essere buona, avere un gran profumo ed essere bellissima. Ho profumato la glassa di fiori dì arancio e creato piani in più in caso si fosse danneggiata durante il viaggio verso l’Irlanda.

• Gorgelous Place

My own home, with my own family.

Casa mia, con la mia famiglia.

• Gorgelous Artistic Experience (any form of art that really impressed you)

The golden age of Couture exhibition at the V&A Museum was inspiring. Focussing on attention to detail and painstaking intricate handcraftsmanship – combined with couture to die for.

La mostra The golden age of Couture al V&A Museum mi ha ispirato moltissimo. Grandisima attenzione al dettaglio e accuratissimo lavoro artigianale. Da restare senza fiato.

• Gorgelous Encounter

It doesn’t come much grander than receiving a medal and meeting Her Majesty the Queen.

Sicuramente incontrare e ricevere una medaglia da Sua Maestà la Regina.

• Gorgelous Taste

A fresh crab sandwich eaten by the sea.

Mangiare un sandwich al granchio guardando il mare.

• Gorgelous Memory

The moment my son George was born – he had the most beautiful ears.

Il momento in cui è nato mio figlio George, aveva le orecchie più belle del mondo.

• Gorgelous Moment

Discovering I was pregnant.

Scoprire di essere incinta.

• Gorgelous Dream

To be healthy and wealthy. To have time with my family, and not be bound by daily deadlines.

Star bene in ogni senso. Avere tempo per la mia famiglia e non essere strozzata dalle emergenze quotidiane.

• This is Gorgelous! (what somebody else did, but you would like to have done it instead)
