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 […]

This week we will put it straight out there given it’s Sourdough September. Sourdough is the best thing since, well sliced bread! What’s not to like about a bread made from only three ingredients – flour, water and salt – and a starter culture that triggers the fermentation process and the natural leavening. This in […]

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?

“In Mexico, everything on the menu is the same dish. The only difference is the way it’s folded.” Ah, Billy Connolly, you comedy genius you! This one-liner has always made me laugh, but with Cinco de Mayo approaching, funnily enough on 5th May, do you know your taco from a burrito? One thing is for […]

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 […]

On National Tea Day, we have one burning question to ask, how do you make the perfect cuppa? This age-old debate has divided people for centuries. Should you have it black or white? If you like it with milk, how much do you use?

We have a question for you on International Carrot Day. Hands up who was told when they were kids, and now tell your own children, that eating carrots helps you to see in the dark? Come on, we have all done it right? Granted, if it got us and our children to eat more vegetables, […]
