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 […]

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 […]

Do you know that peanut butter has overtaken jam as Britain’s favourite breakfast spread? This is very apt given today (24th Jan) is National Peanut Butter Day. Granted, it’s an American event, which is not surprising given our cousins across the Pond eat 3 pounds of the stuff per person every year. That’s about 700 […]

It’s national curry week, which has always had a place in our hearts here in the SK kitchen, after all it is our bread and butter (or should that be naan?)
