A Great British Bake Off finalist ran her own pop up restaurant in Southgate on Saturday.

Urvashi Roe, from Enfield Chase, cooked a citrus themed afternoon tea at the Maze Inn, Chase Side, for 27 people.

Mrs Roe, who was in the final twelve of this year's TV cookery programme, said: “It was amazing. I learnt so much from the whole process.

“It was really interesting just going in every day and working in terms of professional equipment and multiple cooking. I had never made that many plates before. I think it was a little bit overwhelming.”

She said cooking in a restaurant is very different to cooking at home because everything in the kitchen is so different and on a much larger scale.

She had to make the meringue for the lemon meringue tart three times because it was left by an air vent, which added to the pressure of the day.

Food on the menu included lime fizz cupcake, citrus macaroons and orange polenta cake.

She said all the feedback was positive but she is unsure whether she would try the experience again.

The restaurant opened from 3pm to 5pm as part of the Pipe Dream company based in Enfield, which enables people to run their own restaurant on a temporary basis.
