If the last 12 months have taught us anything it’s that the world is a crazy place but if there’s one silver lining that has brought a smile to our faces, it’s the amount of new, and often weird and wonderful, food combinations that people have come up with. Only this week we learned that […]

“We’re all going on our summer holiday, no more working for a week or two.” Ah, read that first paragraph and imagine listening to the dulcet tones of the great Sir Cliff Richard. Granted, we may just have lost half our readership with that reference (Cliff who we hear the millennials say?) but there’s a […]

This week Greggs have launched a vegan sausage roll (available from today Thursday). McDonalds is following this with its first vegetarian happy meal, it’s safe to say that the meat-free trend is here to stay.

The organisers of Veganuary were very clever when they set up this awareness month a few years ago. Granted, the only other option, if it was about fitting in with the name of the month, was to have it in February (Veganuly just doesn’t right does it?) but January really is the perfect time.
