It’s Guacamole Day. If you had told us a few years ago that we would be writing a blog on something whose primary ingredient is avocado, we would have told you to go and lie in a darkened room. Not that we have anything against this small green fruit of course, after all Mexican food […]

It would appear the end is nigh for good old-fashioned fish and chips; the fat lady is singing for chicken tikka masala and chicken chow mein is facing the final curtain. Say it ain’t so we hear you ask? Well, whilst rumours of their demise may be greatly exaggerated, there is a new kid on […]

Ah, the sound of leather on willow. Is there anything more quintessentially British than watching cricket in the summer?

There are few things more quintessentially British than afternoon tea, so when we decided to do a blog to mark afternoon tea week it made perfect sense to choose a New Zealander to do it. To be fair, I have lived in the UK for a while now and have had my fair share of […]

Today (1st August) is Yorkshire Day, a celebration of all that is good in ‘God’s Own Country’. Our head office is on the border with Yorkshire and two of our manufacturing sites are in Middlesbrough, which used to be part of Yorkshire, so there was no way we were going to miss doing a blog […]
