A Healthy Breakfast
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Monday, 25th January 2016
Here we are the middle of January, still being bombarded with diets, exercise DVD’s, dry January and how much carbs, sugar, fat, and caffeine we should be all be consuming! The list is endless!
I think we all know what we should and should not be eating – it basically comes down to eating less and moving more. But this does not mean that you cannot eat some of your favourite food, just eat it less often and cook it as healthily as possible!0 Comments

Breakfast Boost Loaf
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 5th January 2016
I’m sure you’ll see plenty of green smoothies, salads and other healthy recipes doing the rounds this January but the fact remains that it’s still pretty wet and dark out there and we need some comforting stodge in our lives. This will definitely fulfil that brief.0 Comments
Leftover turkey? Here’s how to use it up...
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 21st December 2015
Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey curry, perhaps even turkey risotto, turkey stew… It can go on for days. But it need not be a chore.
Planning leftovers, especially with too much turkey can be a pest. From experience, ordering a full turkey of about 200g per person is plenty (including carcass weight).0 Comments
Musings on Christmas dinner
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 8th December 2015
Christmas dinner - the most wonderful meal of the year?
I’m going to have come clean on this subject. I have only ever cooked Christmas dinner once. I massively over catered and I over cooked the veg. But, despite the spiced red cabbage mountain left after my attempt I’m not averse to the idea of trying again because you know what? I’m pretty certain that the cook is more critical on themselves than anyone else is of their cooking when it comes to Christmas dinner. In fact how about we don’t call it that? Let’s call it a turkey roast dinner to celebrate Christmas. It’s not your only dinner of the Christmas period after-all and there’s a lot more to Christmas than that one meal.0 Comments

They say that good things come in small packages and whilst this is true in many respects, bigger is definitely better when it comes to cooking the Christmas feast. When you consider all the elements that make up this traditional family meal, from the roast potatoes crisp with goose fat to the turkey surrounded by little pigs in blankets, not to mention the vegetables, the gravy and the Christmas pudding, as well as any extra sides and vegetarian dishes, it’s essential to have the biggest ovens you can sensibly squeeze into the kitchen. Rangemaster’s Excel 110 range cooker is guaranteed to take the stress out of the big day as it comes with two large A-rated ovens, a smaller slow cook oven, grill, warming zone, griddle and six-burner gas hob. Take your pick from silver, gloss black, stainless steel, royal pearl, slate or, perfect for the festive season, a mouthwatering cranberry shade to suit your scheme.0 Comments

5 Step Plan to cooking for a party
Posted by James McIntosh Wednesday, 18th November 2015
Four chickens cooked in one oven at a time. That’s right, Four. Or 4 lasagnes’ or 4 cottage pies or even 4 quiches. And I don’t mean small ones. That’s just one of the features of selected Rangemaster range cookers.
With Christmas coming up and family occasions to cook for, most of us host a big meal at least once. It can be stressful planning not only what to cook, but also to ensure it’s all cooked perfectly when served. Ovens can cook more than one thing at once, but do be careful of putting items straight from the fridge into the oven as it will lower the temperature. Rangemaster ovens will come back to temperature quickly though.0 Comments
Best of British: Scotch Eggs, Mature Cheddar Cheese and Pickle
Posted by Supper Club Monday, 16th November 2015
Whether you consider them a guilty pleasure or a well-deserved treat, the scotch egg is very British and utterly delicious.
Usually confined to the realms of picnic basket or pub snack we’d like to see the scotch egg given the status it deserves! This recipe for scotch eggs, mature cheddar cheese and pickle would make a fantastic dinner party starter; packed with rustic charm and hearty country flavours it’s sure to be welcomed to the table with nostalgic shouts of, “I haven’t had one of these for ages!”0 Comments
Edible Sparklers for Bonfire Night
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 3rd November 2015
You don’t need worry about wearing gloves to eat these sparklers and you don’t need a bucket of water to put them in. However, I’m sure dipping them in a mug of hot chocolate wouldn’t hurt. If you’re short of time this ideas works perfectly well using bought breadsticks in a packet (the grissini type). The biscuit base here will make for a sweeter treat though.0 Comments
