It's great to be back.
My name's Matilda.
-But people call me Tilly.
I'm crazy about cooking.
Mad to mess about.
And I've got the most embarrassing family ever!
Is it true you have a boyfriend?
You're so annoying!
-Dad's a chef.
-Matilda, where's my frying pan? Please.
But I've taken over the kitchen in this house.
-What are you doing?
-I'm looking for my frying pan.
-Tilly rules, OK?
-Dad, don't take your trousers off.
-I've got to take them off.
We're having a totally full-on summer.
Getting up to all sorts of adventures,
meeting some great people.
And I'm trying to make my food blog the best ever.
Now we're back home in London and the holidays are nearly over.
It's the last days of summer before school starts again,
so I'm throwing a party for some of our mates.
And it's going to be no grown-ups allowed. But the big question is,
what makes a great party?
A new puppy.
I'm taking care of the food,
and Jack, Megan and Holly are in charge of drinks.
They're going shopping to pick up ingredients.
The fastest way to get around central London is by boat.
I can't wait.
I'm keeping the food simple,
so it's easy to make and good fun to eat.
I don't want it all posh and fancy-pants like Dad's cooking.
-I hope Tilly's making something nice.
-Yeah, me, too.
I'm cooking do-it-yourself, spicy sausage sandwiches
in pitta bread. A bit like kebabs.
A zingy yoghurt sauce to go with them and brilliant pop-tastic cakes,
inspired by an idea Scarlett sent in to my blog.
Plus, the rest of the gang are making
Ramsay Bunch watermelon cocktails, with a twist.
-Are you going to see your friends?
Yeah, I can't wait.
My zingy yoghurt sauce tastes delicious.
Eat it with pretty much everything.
Jack even dollops it on his pizza.
Hm, not sure about that.
I love it best on my super, sausage sandwiches.
It's so yummy.
This sauce is so easy to make.
You just start by grating the cucumber.
Squeeze the water out, so it's not all watery in the yoghurt.
'Add it to the plain yoghurt and squeeze in lemon juice.'
The lemon makes it very zingy.
Chop up some garlic.
Add a pinch of salt and some pepper.
Get some mint.
'I add loads, because I love it when it's really minty.'
And then I put it in this nice bowl to serve it.
I'm going to get some pictures for my blog.
You can check out some of my recipes and blog on the CBBC website.
I'm going to take a picture of Rumpole, too.
I love cooking, but shopping can be a bit of a drag.
-OK, guys. Let's see what this boat can do.
Though, probably not when you're travelling
on a high-performance rib.
I bet this is how James Bond goes shopping.
Borough Market's just over on the other side of the river.
The Ramsay secret agents' mission is to try and get
the best watermelons in London.
I think food at parties is best when everybody can just help themselves
and tuck in. It's much more fun that way.
My super-sausage sandwiches are a build-your-own job.
They are really easy to make.
Perfect party food...
RUMPOLE SNORES ..or snoring food for some people.
First, you get your lamb mince.
Add in some chopped onion and then your dried apricots.
'They're going to be fruity and spicy. Great combo.
'Now, add cinnamon, ground coriander...'
That smells a bit orangey.
'Tumeric, salt and pepper and chopped coriander.
'Now, really mix it together.'
Morning. How are you, pumpkin?
Good, thanks, how are you?
-All good. What's this?
And it's got some spices in, some onion, apricot.
-I'm going to make it into sausages.
Hello, Rumps. Hello, hello!
Hey! Come on, look super-cool.
Look super-cool for Daddy. He-e-e-y!
-Can you please roll my sleeve up?
-Yes, of course.
I didn't realise you had such hairy arms.
How come you have got more hairs on your arms?
-Because you shave your arms.
-I do not. Maybe in an Ironman.
You always shave your...
Can you turn that hat around, please?
You're not 21.
Hug me, baby. No, no, no!
That's the others calling.
I just have to...
Hold on for two seconds, I'm just going to wipe my hands.
-What did you see on the River?
-Tower of London was so much fun.
Awesome. We're just about to do some shopping.
-Can't wait for our party.
-See you in a bit. Bye, guys.
This is perfect. It's nice and mushy.
I'm going to put it on these skewers, which I've soaked in water.
This is so they don't burn when I put them in the oven.
And there's a bit at the bottom,
so people can grab them when they're about to eat them.
They really do look like sausages now.
I'm going to drizzle a bit of olive oil on the top,
to stop them drying out. After you've been touching raw meat,
you've got to keep your hands nice and clean.
'Then simply pop them into a hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes.'
This is one of the busiest markets in London,
and Jack is one of the greediest boys in Britain.
-Are you hungry?
-Yes, I'm starving.
We've got to get watermelon and mint.
You go that way. Ollie, go the way, and I'll go that way.
The Ramsey bunch are go!
Jack is not the only hungry one.
Rumpole's dreaming of sausages, too.
These look amazing.
'Now I'm going to test build one.
'Toast your pitta breads.'
Cut the top off this, so I can put everything inside it.
I'm going to start by adding some lettuce.
'Spoon in your zingy yoghurt sauce.
'Add one of the spicy sausages,
'chopped tomatoes and a bit more zingy sauce on top.'
Bang! Looks delicious.
Now, I just need a picture for my blog.
I love taking pictures of what I'm cooking.
And also sharing what the Ramsay bunch are getting up to.
So it's been fantastic getting posts from you.
People have been sending some brilliant cooking photos to my blog.
So I thought it would be great to ask for recipe ideas for my party.
Let's see what you guys came up with.
Georgina, thank you for saying to make chocolate-chip cookies.
We made those with the Cookie Monster,
-when he visited from the Furchester Hotel.
Tasneem did a really good idea about fruity noodles and fruit juice.
I love that idea.
Bruno? Bruno doesn't seem that interested.
Aleena from Hertfordshire.
I really like your idea of balloon cakes or biscuits in the shape of
balloons with popping candy.
Scarlett thinks I should make a popcorn cake.
I think I'm going to make that today.
Thanks for the idea. Nice one, Scarlett!
The gang are going to make fruit cocktails
and they're planning an awesome stunt.
-Got my watermelon, my lemons.
Nice, mate. Shall we head on home?
-Go that way.
-Nice one, guys.
Sounds like our party is going to go with a fruity bang.
One type of food you have to have to make a good party is cake.
So it was great getting your help to come up with an idea.
Big thanks. Because cooking popcorn is so much fun
with all the explosions, I'm going to make popcorn cakes.
First, make the chocolate sauce.
So, I've got some water that's boiling.
I'm going to put a glass bowl of chocolate over the top.
'Don't forget, parents like to know what you're up to in the kitchen -
'especially with hot pans.'
Add in some butter.
And a nice big squirt of golden syrup.
Then you leave this to melt.
Looks nice and gooey.
Get my pan ready for the popcorn.
And it's got a little bit of oil in to stop it from sticking.
'All you do is add the popcorn kernels,
'make sure you put the lid on and wait.'
Wow, so this is melted and this is popping like mad.
I'll show you.
'It's just like magic.'
Keep stirring this one.
That filled up my pan.
Switch it off. Now I'm going to get this bowl
and in it, I'm going to add in my popcorn.
'Pour in the lovely melted chocolate.'
That's good! Mix it all round.
It's time to get messy.
The easiest way is probably just to use your hands.
'Make sure the chocolate is not too hot.'
I've still got sticky hands,
but I'm going to put some sprinkles on the top.
'Colourful hundreds and thousands make them look fun.'
I'm just going to take some pictures for my blog.
Put these in the fridge to set
and I'm going to get on with the next batch.
'It's good to mix it up,
'so I'm making white chocolate ones as well.'
SHE IMITATES RUMPOLE: Lovely.
'The gang is back.'
'Time to make Ramsay bunch watermelon cocktails.
'And the great thing is, you make them in the actual fruit.'
You know if you have it on its side, it won't wobble,
so make sure it stays like that.
If you cut into the side as well, it won't wobble.
-There we go.
-Do you want to cut a square there?
'You need a sharp knife, so be careful.
'If you're worried, get a grown-up to do it.'
Whee! 'Now whizz.'
'Blitzing the inside turns all the fruit into delicious liquid.
'Just be careful when you do it.'
Is that all coming out the bottom?
'Uh-oh! Jack sliced too much off the bottom and there's a hole.
Jack, put it in a bowl and then the juice won't be wasted.
Tills, you're just so clever. What would I do without you?
Shall we start again? OK, nice one, thank you.
It looks delicious.
Here's the mint we bought.
'Adding the mint should give it a great flavour.
-Don't drink the whole thing.
-That's really delicious.
-Thank you, Tills.
Let's get this party started.
Guys, I think Mia is here.
-Hello! Are you good?
'Dad, you're not invited.'
-How was it this morning?
-It was good.
'It's no grown-ups.
'The party is for us, and the dogs, of course.'
-He's fast asleep. Oh, come on.
Bruno, wake up, it's Ironman Daddy.
Guys, I'll see you later.
If you're not happy with the food, send it back.
-She loves constructive criticism.
'Dad, don't embarrass me!'
SHE IMITATES RUMPOLE: Where are my sausages?
Get a pitta, then some zingy, zangy sauce.
Tills, it's really yummy.
Perfect food for summer.
Who doesn't want to go back to school?
Oh, summer is over.
Sausages! So, who's up for dessert?
Guys, I've got a game.
Goggles, pass them down the line.
So, you hold the rubber band.
Everyone saw that?
'The idea is to load up the centre of the watermelon
'with elastic bands until it explodes.'
I can't, I can't!
-Oh, my God. It's going to make it snap.
-Guys, it's going to blow.
-I'm kind of nervous.
-I hope it does.
It looks like it's going to blow!
I can't wait for it to blow.
Three, two, one, stretch!
'Slow motion replay. It's got to be!'
'Yeah, melon for everyone!'
Thank you for a fun party, Tilly.
Guys, where you going?
I need to go and finish some homework.
'Don't worry. I came back to help Mia clear up.
'It's the end of the summer, but this is the way to finish it.
'We've had a brilliant party, great food and drinks, best friends
'and exploding watermelons.
'I can't wait to tell Dad how it all went.'
-Hey, how are you?
-Good, thanks, how are you?
-I'm very well, thank you. How did it go?
-It was really good, thanks.
-Everyone loved the food.
-Wow, what did you cook them?
So, we had spicy sausage sandwiches,
the lamb kebabs were shaped like a sausage.
-That sounds delicious, any dressing?
-Yes, I made a zingy dressing.
-And I put that inside the pitta.
And did the party food go down well?
It went down really well.
We also made healthy watermelon cocktails and one went bang!
One more thing I need to talk to you about.
Daddy loves a party, so later on in life, when maybe you're 18, 19...
Mum's calling me, Dad. I've got to go.
-I'll come to the party with you.
-Bye, love you.
Always has to end it like that.
It's dark already. Summer must be over.
Cheer up, there's loads of things to look forward to.
Halloween, Bonfire Night, Dad's birthday.
Christmas, Dad's cooking.
-Good night! Good night!
-Bagsy I cook Christmas dinner!
-That's my job.
