So, as Veganuary draws to a close, we come to our final ‘taste off’ of the month – Pizza Hut’s Vegan Pepperphoni Pizza vs McDonalds Veggie Dippers. We’ll start with the Veggie Dippers. Granted, McDonald’s do say this is only intended as a side, but you can’t help thinking that after all the publicity surrounding […]

So, over the last few weeks we have discussed and provided recipes for traditional Christmas food such as Brussels and turkey, albeit putting our own unique SK stamp on it. In the last recipe of 2019 (hey even development chefs need a few weeks off) we’re suggesting you do something different this year and we’ll […]

So, hands up, how many of you will be eating turkey this Christmas? Ok, and how many times do you eat turkey from February to November, assuming there may still be some leftovers in January? Soup anyone? Isn’t it funny that turkey has become such a Christmas staple? We eat around 10 million turkeys each […]

So, who will be having Brussels sprouts with their Christmas dinner this year? Once upon a time, if we asked that question, we would have undoubtedly had more ‘nays’ than ‘yahs’. But as Simon and Garfunkel so eloquently put ‘the times they are a changin’. It’s fair to say that Brussels sprouts have historically had […]

It’s Thanksgiving, a public holiday in the United States of America, or Thursday as it’s better known here in the UK. With the Americanisation of nearly everything (think Halloween and Christmas), it’s a little surprising that we haven’t jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to Thanksgiving. After all, who wouldn’t welcome a day off […]

Game, it’s fair to say, isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, which is presumably one of the reasons for British Game Week. In fact, Game is a bit like marmite, you either love it, or you hate it – there’s never any middle ground. I was at a restaurant with someone a few years ago who […]

Italian Cuisine Week starts on Monday, a celebration of all that is good about food from this country. According to a survey, Spaghetti Bolognese is the UK’s favourite Italian dish, which is no great surprise. Do you remember the scene in Goodfellas (still one of the best films ever made in my view) where Henry […]

It”s National Curry Week so we’ll start with a question. What’s your favourite type of curry? That’s what we have been debating here at SK Towers this week. Well, it’s better than discussing whether we will be out or in after 31st October isn’t it? What we discovered is that curry, a bit like Brexit […]

It’s the start of British Food Fortnight, a celebration of everything that’s great about the food we eat as a nation. As a British company which has been supplying chilled food to the UK’s biggest supermarkets for over 25 years, we are tremendously proud of the contribution we have made to the sector. When deciding […]

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 […]
