Pantone Colour of the Year

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Tuesday, 21st January 2020

Every year, Pantone announces its Colour of the Year and while some have seen unusual choices and tricky shades to work with, 2020 is all about Classic Blue. A fantastic hue for all rooms of the home but especially good for kitchens, it’s a tone that works wonderfully in both classic and contemporary designs. Pantone says that its 19-4052 Classic Blue instils calm, confidence and connection and is an enduring blue hue that highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build, as we cross the threshold into a new era.

Kitchen trends for 2020

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Wednesday, 20th November 2019

This month we’re taking a sneaky peak at the top trends in kitchens for the coming year. We asked kitchen expert Adrian Stoneham, managing director at Stoneham Kitchens, for his thoughts on what’s going to be big in 2020…

 

Going green
In 2017 Pantone announced its Colour of the Year as Greenery, a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade, and since then green has gradually gained momentum in kitchen design. A dark forest green has become a new firm favourite, which shows no signs of slowing down as we head towards 2020. As an earthy hue, this tone creates a natural warmth that works well both contrasted with another colour or used throughout. Like other dark shades such as black, a deep, rich green provides a luxurious feel to the room and works particularly well with Shaker-style cabinets.

When it comes to cooking, there’s no doubt that steam is one of the healthiest ways of preparing food. You don’t need any oil or fat and the process of steaming ingredients helps to retain vitamins and minerals as well as nutrients, texture, colour and taste. Always at the forefront of appliance innovation, Rangemaster is launching a brand new range cooker this month called the NEXUS Steam. Offering a combination of cooking functions in one, this groundbreaking new range cooker has a dedicated steam oven, which is a first for the range cooking market.

Washington Apple Cake

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 10th June 2019

For Father’s Day this year I decided to dig into the history of the occasion a little to get some inspiration for what to make. A celebration of Fatherhood has been around since the middle ages, but the current incarnation of Father’s Day is probably a result of the work of Sonora Smart Dodd, whose father was a single parent of six and civil war veteran. In 1910, Dodd heard a sermon about Mother’s Day at her church in Spokane, Washington State and decided that Fathers should have a day too. Originally, she wanted the day to be on her Dad’s birthday (5th June) but the pastor did not have enough time to prepare a sermon and postponed it until the third Sunday in June, which is when we now celebrate it. After the first edition of the day Dodd’s life rather got in the way of promoting the event and it was not until the 1930 that it really started to take off as she returned to her hometown and got the help of trade groups who wanted to market presents as part of the event. A Father’s Day Council was formed in 1930 but it was not until 1972 that President Nixon signed the day into law. In honor of the modern-founder of the day, I thought I would look for traditional home-bake cakes from Washington State. I came across this Apple cake, which is made using an American muffin-like recipe but is British feeling in taste!

Tahini Galette

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 20th May 2019

Another Bank Holiday! There are so many at this time of year and the wonderful thing about that is that you don’t feel you have to use them to ‘get things done’. Instead you can slow down, have friends around and relax. This recipe brings a slightly Mediterranean vibe to a very informal pastry tart. It’s perfect for at the dinner table or in the garden or cold in a picnic.
