Roast Dinner Week
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 28th September 2015
The 23rd September - 4th October is British Roast Dinner Week. Restaurants and pubs around the country are putting themselves forward to win the crown of Best Roast Dinner, with the regional finalists announced on the 25th and the winner on the 4th.
Roast Dinners are just one huge delicious dilemma to me. It’s hard enough deciding on what to have for the main part - meat or veggie, which meat? So when you add in condiments (apple sauce, horseradish, mint sauce), the sides (Yorkshires) and the vegetables it’s easy to understand why we never grow tired of our Sunday favourite. It’s so versatile. You can make it as complicated or simple as you like and almost all the prep can be done ahead of time.0 Comments
Best of British - Roast Beef
Posted by Emma Line Monday, 28th September 2015
Good food and good company: just what Sunday afternoons were made for! As autumn sets in, there’s no better way to brighten up a drizzly weekend than by gathering together your nearest and dearest for some delicious winter comfort food.
Hearty and wholesome, Sunday roast is a brilliant British heritage dish – so good in fact, there’s a national Roast Dinner Week, from the 28th September – 4th October, celebrating one of our loveliest traditions.
It’s the perfect excuse to get together with friends and family to enjoy the last of the weekend and some wonderful home cooking!0 Comments
Base Heat in your Rangemaster
Posted by Alison Baker Monday, 21st September 2015
The first time I had a holiday in Italy, I was amazed at the pizza! No thick crust, thin crust or stuffed crust, just beautiful toppings (I seem to remember Gorgonzola on a thin base which was amazing).
Not all of us have the time to make our own pizza from scratch but don’t forget that the ready-made pizza bases are good, just top with some passata and cheese and bake. Pizza that supermarkets prepare in store are good too, you can add extra toppings and more cheese if you like. So much cheaper than a take-away and much nicer!
Ascot Festival of Food & Wine & Chatsworth Country Fair
Posted by Chefs on Stage Wednesday, 16th September 2015
The Rangemaster Cookery Theatre made an appearance at the Chatsworth Country Fair and Ascot Food & Wine Festival on the weekend of the 4th and 5th September. Chatsworth is always a wonderful event attracting over 100,000 people over the 3 days, the biggest event of its kind in the UK, located in the grounds of the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House.
Meanwhile, for the fourth year running, TV Celebrity Chef and Personality James Martin of BBC’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’ headlined the prestigious Food & Wine Festival at Ascot Racecourse on demoing some of his favourite dishes on one of the Rangemaster Cookery Theatres located within the main Grandstand concourse.
A Recipe Fit for the Queen
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 14th September 2015
Food history fascinates me. I believe that food, and cookery books for that matter, are historical narratives of a people in a place, at a time. They tell us so much about current social and economic factors, the availability of ingredients and wealth. In fact, food is the story of a people, on a plate. And one very special recipe that we may all take for granted is ‘Polet Reine Elizabeth’, also known by the common name of ‘Coronation Chicken’.0 Comments
Made in Britain
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Thursday, 27th August 2015
There are many reasons to choose Rangemaster, the world’s oldest cooker manufacturer. One of which is its heritage and the fact that their range cookers are still made in Royal Leamington Spa, 181 years after the very first Kitchener was created in 1830. To celebrate the very best of British, this month we take a look at some of the kitchen industry’s leading UK designs with something for every style and budget…
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.0 Comments
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.0 Comments

Now that we’re in the midst of the school summer holidays, the children will be around the home a lot more and with so many mouthwatering recipes to try out with the kids (see our recipes section for plenty of ideas), what better time to consider what makes a child-friendly kitchen.0 Comments
