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, […]

Do you know that Waffle Day is approaching? When you think of waffles, what country springs to mind? The USA or maybe Belgium? Both countries are, of course, renowned for their waffles and in Belgium’s case, it’s in the name! But, we actually have Sweden to thank for giving us waffle day. There it is […]

There are some strange food awareness days, National Tartar Sauce Day and National Melba Toast Day to name just a few hundred, but one day which deserves to be recognised is Plant Power Day. Not so long ago, you would have recoiled at the thought of a day which is about eating plants, I mean […]

With Pancake Day upon us, we wonder how many people will actually make their own pancakes on Shrove Tuesday? The reason we ask is there are now so many pre-prepared versions, whether it is those where the mix is already made for you or where it’s just a case of putting the pancake in the […]

Real Bread Week began in 2010 and is the annual celebration of real bread and the people who make it, so… At the start of Real Bread Week, let’s begin with a question. True or false. The smell of freshly baked bread can help to sell a house? Well, according to a recent survey, the […]
