We all like to get value for money and that certainly applies to food . So making the most out of the weekly shop – rather than throwing some of it away – makes perfect sense. After all, who doesn’t want to save money and reduce food waste? One of the aims of The United […]

Last week, we were talking tea, and now we’re approaching UK Coffee Week (29th April to 5th May). Where do you stand on the tea vs coffee debate? Personally, I am coffee all the way during the day, but partial to a cup of tea of an evening. I am certainly not alone in this […]

We’re big fans of different new year celebrations here in the SK kitchen, so Happy Baisakhi everybody! After all, why should 1st January be the only time we have a party and eat great food? The Chinese New Year is a great example. This happened in February and as Chinese food is one of our […]

We’ve only got our children to verify this, but school dinners (we’re in the North-East so it will always be dinner, not lunch) these days just don’t seem to be what they were. Don’t get us wrong, from a nutritional standpoint, they’re definitely better, and it’s great that our kids are eating healthy, balanced meals […]

When it comes to champagne, and it is Global Champagne Day on 19th October after all, we like to quote Lily Bollinger of the House of Bollinger Champagne. She said: “I drink Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. […]

Over the last six years, sales of plant-based milks have doubled, so it’s not surprising that there is now a World Plant Milk Day (this Wednesday 22nd).

With Germany out of the World Cup, it seems the path has been cleared for Brazil, now the tournament favourites, to lift the trophy. We love Brazil, but not only because of Neymar and Co, we must admit. It’s not its beaches, although they’re undoubtedly beautiful. It’s not the great cities like Rio and Sao […]
