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.

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.

Best of British: Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas

Posted by Emma Line Wednesday, 29th July 2015

Synonymous with towns like Brighton and Bournemouth, fish, chips and mushy peas brings a quintessential taste of the British seaside to your dinner table. So then, with summer holiday season in full swing, what better way to start our Best of British recipe series than this traditional coastal dish? It’ll have you reminiscing about stripy deck-chairs, bracing sea air and rickety wooden piers.

A Bowl of Delicious Salad

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 20th July 2015

My late father was a farmer, he used to complain heavily when my mum would serve a ‘lovely salad’ for dinner after a hard days work in the fields.  Dad had a point... Well, back then anyway.  Generally, in the 1980’s, salads were bowls of iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and hard boiled eggs, however, today they can be fantastic tasting bowls of summer joy full of colour and flavour.

Simple Sardine and Tomato Tagliatelle

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 13th July 2015

Whether you’re going on holiday or not, the fresh flavours and easy method of this recipe should bring you a little taste of the mediterranean. I suggest finding a nice red wine to drink with it and perhaps burning a citronella candle as you eat it - just for that authentic holiday experience!

Caraway Seed Cake - The perfect Father's Day treat

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 15th June 2015

It’s Father’s Day on June 21st so I thought I thought I’d bring you an idea of what to make for any father-figures in your life. In order to decide what to make I thought it made sense to ask my own Dad what are his favourite things to eat. He suggested a lovely range of dishes, from seafood risotto to the more classic roast pork or a pie of any form. I’m not going to give you a recipe for any of those though. I suppose this is the kind of every day injustice which the father of two daughters has to endure. Sorry Dad. Instead, I’m going to give you a recipe for caraway seed cake. I thought of it because I’m sure my Dad has mentioned this featuring in his childhood (need to ask him about that) and whilst most of my friends who are Dads would scoff down a chocolate brownie/muffin/cake at any given moment, I feel that a father’s day recipe should be something more refined.

Bye bye Beige. The sun is out; it’s time for a picnic

Posted by James McIntosh Thursday, 11th June 2015

Spring always gives me hope, seeing the flowers and leaves in their full glory. Spring days may be cold, but spring mornings to me are like waking up from a great night’s sleep. Summer is the icing on the cake; it’s like a party of life for me.

Sparklin’ Parkin for bonfire night

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 30th October 2014

Mr Bland, who is a Yorkshire-man by birth, first introduced me to Parkin. In Yorkshire parkin is a Bonfire Night tradition and I can see why. The best way to describe it to those of us more southerly born is that it’s a really dense ginger cake. It is warming and sweet but the addition of oats and treacle create a depth of flavour and density of texture that is perfect for keeping the cold at bay on a cold November night. It’s also sturdy enough to be wrapped up and shoved in a coat pocket for the walk home!
