Global Scouse Day

Today is Global Scouse Day, a celebration of all things Liverpudlian.

As part of the day, people are being encouraged to eat Scouse. If you have never heard this before, it’s a type of lamb or beef stew which has been enjoyed by generations of people from this fine city.

The word actually comes from lobscouse, a stew commonly eaten by sailors throughout Northern Europe, which became popular in seaports such as Liverpool.

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air so what is a more perfect aphrodisiac than food?

If you are planning to make a meal for a loved one, or taking them to your favourite restaurant, here’s some suggestions that will help to spice things up.

Oysters – if they were good enough for Casanova, who reportedly used to breakfast on 50 oysters, then that’s good enough for us! Best slurped fresh from the shell or add a drop of red wine vinegar or tabasco sauce for a different taste.

Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday

It’s not often that we would recommend throwing food around a kitchen but we always make an exception for Shrove Tuesday.

Do you know that the tradition of tossing pancakes originated in 1445 when a housewife from Olney, Buckinghamshire, was so busy making pancakes that she forgot the time until she heard the church bells ringing for the service? She raced out of the house to church while still carrying her frying pan and pancake, tossing it to prevent it from burning.

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

It’s fair to say Chinese New Year represents one of the busiest times of the year in the SK kitchen.

Only Christmas is busier for us and as an example this year will be providing 1.5 million pieces of prawn toast, 2 million spring rolls and hundreds of thousands spare ribs, lemon chicken and wontons.

You don’t need to be Chinese to celebrate Chinese New Year and given how amazing Chinese food is, there are certainly no excuses for tucking in to mark the occasion, so what should you eat?

Yorkshire Pudding Day

Yorkshire Pudding Day

It’s Yorkshire Pudding Day. Are you like us and think that Sunday dinner is never the same without this amazing dish made from nothing more than eggs, flour, and milk?

The beauty of the Yorkshire Pud is that it is so versatile. You often now see it as a starter (traditionally this is how it was served in homes) in restaurants served with some onion gravy and because it is so light (well if you make it correctly, but more on that shortly!), it won’t fill you up.
