Lifting the Lid
What can I say about Andi Peters that hasn't been said before? Well, he started his career as a Children's BBC continuity announcer while I started announcing for the grown ups on BBC1 and BBC2. And our paths have crossed one more time, with cooking playing an important part in both our lives.
