In my opinion, Mums should be treated like queens on their special day and there is no finer way to say thank you than by taking over the cooking this coming Sunday.
Start the day with my Posh Cooked Breakfast or a pancake with Nutella, fruit and yoghurt. With the family gathering for afternoon tea, why not produce a plateful of delicious homemade Fruit scones with clotted cream and jam or a traditional Victoria Sponge cake? There is plenty to choose from in my Mothers Day Treats recipe section.
Whatever you choose to do, that little bit of effort will be well appreciated. Thanks Mums everywhere for everything you do. xxx
This is me demonstrating the latest housewares products at the February 2017 ISF trade show at the NEC. I had the honour of prepping and working with Si and Dave aka The Hairy Bikers whilst they showed the crowds how to make the perfect Chicken and Mushroom pie using their pie maker and Tandoori Mix Grill on their griddle, both from The Hairy Bikers range of small electricals from Europasonic. A fantastic hour of banter and laughter and some great food at the end of it.
The following day saw me hobnobbing again with the Chinese School of Wok chef, Jeremy Pang, a young man with such passion and obvious knowledge of not only his food but his range of woks and accessories which he has designed along with the housewares company Dexam. He cleaved, chopped, stir fried and wowed us with his dishes, much to the delight of the crowds.
The School of Wok was founded by Jeremy in 2009 to teach us all how to make and enjoy great Asian food. Based in Covent Garden just a stone's throw from London's world famous Chinatown, this flagship cookery school is really worth a visit. His passion rubbed off so much on us, that Mel and I are looking forward to booking our place there in the next few months so watch this space!
I am often asked to test products before they even get to market, so off I go into my "lab" to start the testing process. My top 3 considerations are does the product work, would it be used on a regular basis and not just consigned to the back of the cupboard and does it look good? If it gets 3 ticks, then it will appear on what will become a list of my personal "tried and tested" products.
I hope that when you read on and are armed with all the facts, that this helps you to make a considered purchase.
More products are being road tested and added to the website as we speak so before you buy, have a read at my reviews - remember they only get on here if I really rate them!
