I love my kitchen gadgets, and have many, from meat slicers to meat mincers, dehydrators to steam pressure ovens, you name it, I seem to have it. But, I have been looking at getting a Sous Vide water bath cooker. I have always fancied one, and I know that a lot of the top chefs use them. I admit I do have the vacuum sealer and lots of rolls of sealing bags,… Read More
I love to bake. I mean bake anything. There is just something so satisfying about the whole process. I did make sourdough bread last weekend, but to be honest, it was a bit crap, however, that will not put me off, and I will keep going until I get it right.

But never have I been able to grow a pumpkin like this bad boy. This was at our local Booths which is a Northern supermarket that only sources local produce and is… Read More
They say, “You can’t have/do that, it’s bad for you.” “That carcinogenic, don’t eat that.” and much, much more. I agree on some things, like heroin, smoking, and eating glass. However, on the measure of food, I consider it all hokum. Yes, radical thinking I know, especially in the age of 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, sugar-free, low calory, light, non-GM rubbish.
