CELEBRITY chef Catherine Fulvio is the latest star to look at taking on the UK, after landing her first appearance at the popular BBC 'Good Food Show' this Christmas.
Fulvio will join dozens of well-known faces at the three-day lifestyle event in Birmingham later this month and told the Irish Independent that securing work on a "bigger platform" helps to keep her business alive back in Ireland.
"The 'Good Food Show' is the biggest of its kind in Britain and I've been pestering for years to get involved. Last time I went as a visitor, but this year I'm finally in it so it's exciting," she said.
Fulvio was on hand yesterday to help launch the Fairy and Make-A-Wish Christmas campaign, with Erin Curren, from Co Louth.
The four-year-old has Miller Dieker Syndrome and is non-communicative.
This year her wish for a swing in her garden was granted, as she is unable to travel to her local playground.
Fulvio admitted that spending time with girls like Erin puts things into perspective with her own children.
"When your own kids come to you with a headache and you worry, it's nothing in comparison to the bigger scheme of things . . . an organisation like Make-A-Wish is so touching because it's not just for the children, it's the whole family that it has an impact on."
