Healthy cooking with NEXUS steam range cooker

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 16th September 2019

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.

It’s always so exciting when a new appliance is launched so I’m thrilled to introduce a brand new range cooker from Rangemaster – the Esprit 110, which comes as a dual fuel or induction model. Available in cream, cranberry, black and stainless steel with shiny chrome trim, its design is suitable for both classic and contemporary kitchens and, depending on your preferred colour choice, it can blend in or make a statement within your scheme. What’s more, there are plenty of innovative features and functions to help take your cooking to the next level.

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.

Mothering Sunday

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 28th March 2019

With mothering sunday around the corner I was wondering about what the best thing was to make. Should it be something decadent that I’d want to eat myself or give to my mother, or should it be something tasty but easy that my husband could help my son make for me? I mean, it seems wrong to be ‘slaving away at the stove’ for my own mothering sunday bake, but then I love baking so actually having the time to make something is a treat.

Inspirational ideas for neutral kitchen schemes

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Tuesday, 19th February 2019

Kitchen trends may come and go. For instance, right now the latest cabinetry comes in all shades of green – but while colour, texture and finish can add instant impact and an eye-catching look, for many of us, a neutral kitchen scheme is a lot easier to live with. Cool and calming, a natural décor is extremely easy on the eye. There’s nothing that jars as you enter the room and it creates an easy, ergonomic feel that flows effortlessly, whether you prefer a classic or contemporary style. There are other benefits too. With a neutral kitchen scheme, it’s easy and inexpensive to jazz things up with a few carefully selected accessories dotted around the room. All you need is to freshen things up with some new textiles – think brightly coloured or patterned oven gloves and tea towels – a new toaster and kettle, some artwork on the walls or a few potted herbs and succulents. The other great thing about a natural interior is that is appeals more to prospective buyers if you decide to sell up in years to come.

Christmas Shortbread Sharing Tree

Posted by Gill Bland Friday, 7th December 2018

At Christmas you may have people popping round unannounced and needing sugary sustenance, you may have the whole family over for extended periods and wanting to graze on sweet treats, or you may just be fed up of dried fruit and wanting something different. This stack of festive shortbread is great for sharing but also keeps incredibly well and looks good in the meantime if you don’t get around to using it straight away.

Rangemaster launches new induction models

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 6th August 2018

Swiftly becoming the fuel of choice for home cooks and keen chefs alike, induction cooking has really taken off over recent years. The benefits are many – it’s safe, energy efficient and ultra-responsive – so it’s easy to see why so many of us are swapping ceramic and even gas cooktops for the controllability and easy cleaning of induction. Offering everything that the home cook needs for everyday meals as well as entertaining family and friends, Rangemaster has launched a brand new, next-generation induction system on two of its popular range cookers.

Sort-of Moroccan Sort-of Leftovers Pie

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 26th July 2018

When we planned that I would blog a freeze-ahead recipe to highlight the new Rangemaster freezer range, it was the middle of winter and we were having more snow that I’ve seen in a while. It seemed a perfectly reasonable thing to be considering hearty freeze-ahead casseroles, lasagnes, pies etc.
