Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 15th May 2018

This week is National Vegetarian Week (14-20 May) and with the sun finally trying to show its face I was inspired to try and find something that would give that summer-time BBQ vibe. To many, the outdoor grill is synonymous with meat, but this recipe shows that you get that meaty, stodgy, umami hit without having to have beef involved.

Dinner for two

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 1st February 2016

February is a time for romance and with Valentine’s Day on the 14th, many of us will be planning an intimate dinner for two in a fancy restaurant. But this year why not cook something really special at home, and create a romantic setting to go with it? Whether you have a compact kitchen and separate dining room or a large open-plan kitchen-diner scheme, there are plenty of ways to inject a little love and romance this month…

Pancake Day!

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 16th February 2015

I’m sure you’re like me and when it comes to Pancake Day the big kid comes out.  Then perhaps the mop comes out, as one may have landed on the floor?  (Clean up is made so much easier if you have a dog).

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, as I’m sure we all know, was originally a Christian festival to use up ingredients prior to Lent, 40 days before we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter.  I always find it a good time to install a little self discipline. I overeat at Christmas, break my New Year’s resolutions by the 2nd January, then feel bad that, for me, it is not ‘new year, new  me’.  That’s why I like the tradition of Lent, it gives me a chance to prove to myself that I can be disciplined for a short period of time.  And I do find this instils an inner confidence in myself.

Sea Bream en Papillote

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 9th February 2015

When I was pondering what recipe to make on theme of “food to share with your valentine” I initially thought of a fondue. I like the idea of food where you can’t try to be on your best behaviour – you’re going to get messy and see the ‘real’ valentine, not the perfectly mannered dining partner you might encounter during a meal in a high end and terrifyingly well mannered restaurant. Fondue had one thing right and one thing wrong. Right – it’s easy to make, so one of you isn’t going to feel like they’ve been working away all evening when they should be relaxing. Wrong – I don’t know about you but a vat full of cheese is more likely to make me want to curl up under a duvet than engage in sparkling conversation (or whatever). So, here is my alternative suggestion for messy but tasty eating: Sea Bream en Papillote.

Once the New Year is underway, it’s time to brush off those New Years’ Resolutions and start as you mean to go on. For many of us, that means embracing a whole new healthy lifestyle, including moderating the way we cook. Okay, so the gym membership may not make it past March but I find that changing cooking and eating habits is a lot easier – and more fun, too.

Show off your chef skills

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Friday, 7th November 2014

Once the nights draw in and autumn is well underway, it’s the perfect time of year to invite family and friends over for a hearty meal. No-one wants to spend too much on going out with Christmas round the corner so entertaining at home is an ideal way to keep socialising on a more informal and inexpensive scale. I’m certainly no Nigella but I’d like to think that I can cook fresh, seasonal ingredients in a very simple yet tasty way. You don’t need to get bogged down in gadgets and utensils or even complicated ingredients – what’s more important is the basic tools for the job and this means investing in a cooker that offers flexibility when it comes to experimenting with different dishes.

It’s Halloween!

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 27th October 2014

Spooky time of year, no sooner are we back at school than its half term time again for teachers and students. But having kids at home is fun, but they may need a bit of entertaining! 

In London where I live, one can’t help the night time ramble of ‘trick-or-treat’, my car is parked on the street and I do like to keep it clean and shiny, so I ensure I’m well stocked with sweets.
