It's All A Bit Manic

Posted by James McIntosh Thursday, 27th August 2015

I don’t have any children, my lifestyle would not cope.  I don’t find myself a selfish person or one that is adverse to children, I just enjoy travelling too much.  Facebook, that thing that overtakes one’s life with pictures of every social gathering and new pair of jeans that enters one's life, available on all devices, has left me screaming this past few weeks.  Friends buying school uniforms online, pictures of children sporting their uniforms pre-school and I’ve even seen a service where a photographer will come to your house on the morning of the first day at school.

Best of British: Cornish Pasties

Posted by Emma Line Tuesday, 25th August 2015

What are the first things that spring to mind when you think of Cornwall? The beautiful coastline perhaps, picturesque towns and villages maybe… but of course, Cornish pasties!

In the most western peninsula of the British Isles they’re fiercely proud of their name-sake dish. Just ask the Cornish Pasty Association, established in 2002 to protect the quality and authenticity of the Tiddy Oggy – as Cornish speakers say.

We’re well into the summer holidays now and whilst the weather is great at the moment there’s a strong chance that you’ll get some rainy days before school starts up again. These two recipes are easy and can be made with very few ingredients so they are ideal for rainy-day baking with the kids.

Conventional Cooking

Posted by Alison Baker Friday, 31st July 2015

Here we are, another in this series of blogs covering the functions in your Rangemaster multi-function oven.  This time it is CONVENTIONAL COOKING. Sometimes there is confusion over this function, do I mean convection?  No, I don’t.  A convection oven has a fan, a conventional oven does not (unless it is a multi-function oven), but the fan is not used when this function is selected.  Quite why it has always been referred to as conventional cooking, I am not sure, maybe someone out in 'blog land’ can enlighten me!  Even Wikipedia offers no reasonable explanation!

A Bowl of Delicious Salad

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 20th July 2015

My late father was a farmer, he used to complain heavily when my mum would serve a ‘lovely salad’ for dinner after a hard days work in the fields.  Dad had a point... Well, back then anyway.  Generally, in the 1980’s, salads were bowls of iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and hard boiled eggs, however, today they can be fantastic tasting bowls of summer joy full of colour and flavour.
