  1. Really love your programme – highlight of Saturday mornings. Just going to make your bread rolls.
    Please keep the programme going x

  2. Loved the Italian program so much, but disappointed l cannot print the recipes. However l will certainly be trying the recipes.
    Is there any hope John & Lisa will be bringing out a cook book any time to go with their program.
