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!).

It’s National Burger Day. In the not too distant past, going out for a burger meant you were restricted to your local McDonalds or Burger King and, if you are a 40-something like many of us at SK are, you may even remember Wimpy! Sitting down to a Big Mac, a Whopper, or a Wimpy […]

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” When an author of Henry James’ stature says that, it would be foolish to disagree, so when we discovered the date of this year’s annual afternoon tea, we couldn’t wait to start cooking. But before you […]

It’s World Chocolate Day, and while here at SK Foods we make a whole host of delicious savoury snacks, we just can’t resist a sweet treat! Chocolate is the ultimate comfort food and the first thing we reach for when we’re stressed, when life has taken a turn for the worse and or need cheering […]

National Picnic Week starts today and when doing our research for this blog we were surprised to discover that, for a change, picnics didn’t originate here in the UK. The first usage of the word can be traced back to a French book in 1692 which described a group of people dining in a restaurant […]

We don’t often blog about drinks, given our forte is food, but we are making an exception for world gin day. And, believe it or not, we also have a gin-based recipe, but more of that in a while. The organisers of World Gin Day, now in its 9th year, must be rubbing their hands […]

We’re all used to fish and chip Friday but it’s even better that today is also National Fish and Chip Day. Believe it or not, as a nation we spend £1.2bn on the battered good stuff every year, eating our way through an amazing 382 million portions! We were intrigued by a recent survey which […]

We have been enjoying Great British Beef Week here in the SK kitchen. It’s one of the meats we use most and if you are a customer at one of the UK’s biggest supermarkets, the chances are that you have eaten one of our dishes. Beef burritos and chilli beef muffins are just two examples. […]
