When we heard about World Food Week (24th to 30th June), we knew this was one blog we simply had to write. After all, creating amazing dishes from around the world is our bread and butter, or in our case naan and ghee! Apparently, over the course of our lifetime, us Brits spend £30,000 on […]

Hummus , I absolutely love it; it’s one of my favourite things to eat in the world, so I am all for International Hummus Day. I do however draw the line at eating it every day. That’s exactly what an Israeli man is doing in the run-up to the day on 13th May. He is […]

Do you recall the scene in Pulp Fiction when John Travolta’s character asks Uma Thurman’s character whether she had just ordered a $5 milk shake, suggesting she had expensive taste? He tastes the drink and declares it to be pretty ‘bleeping’ good, although he is still not sure whether it’s worth five bucks. Granted, 20-plus […]

Oh my ‘cod’, it’s Seafood Week. When I ‘seafood’ I eat it. Do you like my new ‘herrings’? Isn’t this blog ‘brill’? No we haven’t lost our marbles; we’re just getting ready for the first day of Seafood Week on Friday which starts with National Fish Pun Day. ‘Seabass’ me the remote, I want to […]

We love technology here in the SK kitchen; so we were intrigued to read this week about a new app that has been launched which may put an end to the saying ‘there’s nothing to eat in this house”. PixFood does exactly what it says on the tin, if you pardon the pun. Using the […]

The organisers of National Picnic Month must be rubbing their hands with glee given the amazing weather that has coincided with this month’s event. According to the experts, the average person picnics at least three times a year in the UK, but we are assuming this figure is based on the normally poor British summers. […]

Gin. It’s everywhere now, isn’t it? You can’t move down a high street without falling over at least one specialist gin bar and even the most modest of hostelries seems to be offering about a third of their bar space to the spirit. Last year, just in the UK, we bought 47 million bottles. Sales […]

No doubt, even though Christmas is a still a few days away, many of you will have already sat down to eat a Christmas lunch. Whether it was a work’s party or just a trip to the pub, you may already be sick of the sight of turkey, roast potatoes and brussel sprouts, although if […]

When I discovered that Monday (13th November) was the start of National School Meals Week it made me chuckle. The thought of having such a week when I was at school, which granted was a while ago, would have had everyone in hysterics. When I was a kid, school meals were not something to look […]

There are some food awareness days/weeks we particularly look forward to and National Curry Week is certainly one of them. It’s not just because Asian food is one of our specialities here in the SK kitchen, although that obviously makes events like this even more interesting (we don’t get as excited for World Porridge Day for example!).
