Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 7th July 2014

Mr B and I went on our summer holiday last week. Three days in Lisbon and a couple inland near the Spanish border. I can thoroughly recommend it for sunshine, great scenery, lovely people, good food and a slower pace.  If are planning on going to Portugal, do get in touch through www.talesofpiglingbland.com and I’ll write you a list...

Keeping Cool this Summer

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Sunday, 22nd June 2014

With any luck, we’re in for a good summer this year and after the dreadful winter it can’t come soon enough. There’s nothing quite like firing up the barbecue and eating alfresco in the garden but as well as feeling the heat, it’s also important to cool down as well. Whether it’s just you and the family or you’re planning some serious entertaining this season, make sure you have the right appliances to keep your food fresh and drinks chilled to perfection.

World Cup food

Posted by James McIntosh Thursday, 12th June 2014

I'm sure I don't stand alone when I say how much I love the summer. Quite simply there is just so much more one can do!  The days of sitting inside self-diagnosing S.A.D. have gone and it's a good time to have friends over.

Great Nanna’s Favourite Barbecue Sauce

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 2nd June 2014

I am about to entrust you with something very special. I think every family has its own recipes that are handed down and have a special place in our hearts. My childhood memories of Barbecues revolve largely around excessive amounts of chicken wings in sticky chinese sauce, Spanish tortilla, rice and sweetcorn salad and this Barbecue sauce. I even have a dim recollection of mixing this sauce with the aforementioned rice and sweetcorn as a way of having more. That may be well a figment of halcyon-hazed memory, but it gives you some idea of the place that this sauce has in my heart. So, I pass this on to you in the hope that it will grace many-an indoor or outdoor Barbecue this summer and cause many-a tomatoey smile. It would make a great gift to take with you to someone else’s Barbecue.

Mum says she’ll collect the royalties at a later date.

Eat Well, Waste Less

Posted by Alison Baker Tuesday, 17th June 2014

Did you know in the UK we pay for but do not eat a whopping £10.2 billion of food a year? (This works out at costing the average UK family almost £60 a month!)

To raise awareness of the growing issue of food waste and how we can help the environment, we have created a handy infographic to help you start changing your household for the better and save money. You’ll find out how much food is wasted daily in the UK and how much that wasted food costs you.

The graphic also gives you some top tips on how to reduce your waste including recycling, storing food properly and learning what the ‘best before’ dates really mean. You’ll be surprised how much food is actually wasted and how much you can save by just understanding dates and storage instructions properly.

Take a look at our Eat Well Waste Less infographic below to make a real difference to your kitchen, your wallet and the environment.
