Posted by Supper Club Tuesday, 9th February 2016
Everyone loves finding new recipes that they can try at home, especially if they’re the quick and simple kind that takes the minimum amount of effort with the maximum amount of flavour. As part of our ongoing Supper Club, Rangemaster are partnering with a number of the very best “foodies” from around the UK, asking them to whip up something fantastic from a mystery collection of fresh foods.0 Comments

Nothing says “I love you” more than a bread-based product the size of your face, right?
I wanted to steer clear of the normal heart shaped cookies, pink cakes or ‘romantic dinner’ recipes you find around valentine’s day. Instead I have tried to come up with something that is equally useful for someone wanting to give a home-made gift as for someone with a family and wanting a bit of love-filled comfort food.0 Comments

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.

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…0 Comments

From a young age you may have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you all of the essential nutrients and energy that you need to get you through the day, getting your metabolism working and ensuring that you can stay focussed on your lessons or your day at work.0 Comments
A Healthy Breakfast
Posted by Alison Baker Monday, 25th January 2016
Here we are the middle of January, still being bombarded with diets, exercise DVD’s, dry January and how much carbs, sugar, fat, and caffeine we should be all be consuming! The list is endless!
I think we all know what we should and should not be eating – it basically comes down to eating less and moving more. But this does not mean that you cannot eat some of your favourite food, just eat it less often and cook it as healthily as possible!0 Comments

Breakfast Boost Loaf
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 5th January 2016
I’m sure you’ll see plenty of green smoothies, salads and other healthy recipes doing the rounds this January but the fact remains that it’s still pretty wet and dark out there and we need some comforting stodge in our lives. This will definitely fulfil that brief.0 Comments
Leftover turkey? Here’s how to use it up...
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 21st December 2015
Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey curry, perhaps even turkey risotto, turkey stew… It can go on for days. But it need not be a chore.
Planning leftovers, especially with too much turkey can be a pest. From experience, ordering a full turkey of about 200g per person is plenty (including carcass weight).0 Comments
Musings on Christmas dinner
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 8th December 2015
Christmas dinner - the most wonderful meal of the year?
I’m going to have come clean on this subject. I have only ever cooked Christmas dinner once. I massively over catered and I over cooked the veg. But, despite the spiced red cabbage mountain left after my attempt I’m not averse to the idea of trying again because you know what? I’m pretty certain that the cook is more critical on themselves than anyone else is of their cooking when it comes to Christmas dinner. In fact how about we don’t call it that? Let’s call it a turkey roast dinner to celebrate Christmas. It’s not your only dinner of the Christmas period after-all and there’s a lot more to Christmas than that one meal.0 Comments

They say that good things come in small packages and whilst this is true in many respects, bigger is definitely better when it comes to cooking the Christmas feast. When you consider all the elements that make up this traditional family meal, from the roast potatoes crisp with goose fat to the turkey surrounded by little pigs in blankets, not to mention the vegetables, the gravy and the Christmas pudding, as well as any extra sides and vegetarian dishes, it’s essential to have the biggest ovens you can sensibly squeeze into the kitchen. Rangemaster’s Excel 110 range cooker is guaranteed to take the stress out of the big day as it comes with two large A-rated ovens, a smaller slow cook oven, grill, warming zone, griddle and six-burner gas hob. Take your pick from silver, gloss black, stainless steel, royal pearl, slate or, perfect for the festive season, a mouthwatering cranberry shade to suit your scheme.0 Comments
