Tour de Yorkshire

Tour de Yorkshire

The Tour de Yorkshire starts later this week and as it’s just down the road (pardon the pun) from us, needless to say we’re very excited.

It’s fantastic that this has now become an official event on the UCI Europe Tour following the success of the Tour de France, which passed by our neck of the woods in 2014.

As always, we’re interested in the food and in this case what pro cyclists eat to maintain their incredible fitness levels.

National Tea Day

National Tea Day

It was National Tea Day at the weekend and there was a lot of discussion about how to make the perfect brew.

We’re all about the food here at SK, but let’s set the record straight before we go anywhere else.

The perfect cup of tea involves letting the tea bag(s) or leaves stew for at least ten minutes, then serving black. Forget the milk; what’s the point in diluting perfection after all? We’re divided here in the kitchen on whether to add sugar, but personally I thing strong black tea deserves a spoonful or three!

Coffee

Wake up and smell the coffee

Wake up and smell the coffee.

How many times do you see on social media or hear someone say: “I’ll be fine once I’ve had my coffee….”? Plenty, that’s how many.

Coffee is something of an obsession with us Brits and we don’t seem to mind shelling out for it in any number of variations. Ten years ago, there were around 10,000 places to get a cup of Joe in the UK. Since then there’s been staggering growth in the market.

Doughnut

Doughnut

Could a doughnut be any more perfect?

It’s portable and easy to eat on the go. It’s delicious, obviously. And it’s just got a little bit better too…the humble doughnut is not so humble any more. It’s bright pink and favoured by one of the world’s favourite fathers. Homer Simpson….

That’s right, Krispy Kreme (who know a thing or two about doughnuts, it’s fair to say) have just launched an homage to Homer. The Simpsons D’ohnut has arrived. It’s resplendently pink and covered in sprinkles, just like the ones Homer so enjoys. It’s an Original Glazed, but dipped in white chocolate truffle and with a hint of strawberry flavour. How good does that sound?
