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 […]

The war on meat continues this week with another momentous battle. Following on from the epic struggle between BK’s Rebel Whopper and Greggs’ Vegan Steak Bake, we have pitted two more giants of the fast food industry against each other.

If you read the news, there are some big questions on everyone’s minds this week. No, it’s not whether World War Three is about to break out or how much money Meghan and Harry will need for ‘financial independence’. For the record, we don’t think they will struggle! The big question is………. What tastes better, […]

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.

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 […]
