If someone is kind enough to get me a gift for Christmas I love it when said gift is food or food related. I think it’s a very personal thing to give, whether it be something they have made themselves or taken time in choosing for you. This is my Christmas Food and Gift Guide; a range of different food and drink ideas from all sorts of places and companies.
Berry Brothers and Rudd had their Christmas preview all the way back in July when I ventured
It's been a very busy time in the ATIE kitchen over the last few weeks, I have only just got round to writing this post! There have been some fab products to try out this month and last, and as usual, a good variety too. This month we've got: cookie roulette, Korean sauces, yoghurt, salami and milk. I didn't try them all in one sitting of course!
First up I tried out cookie roulette! Each year ABF, The Soldiers' Charity raises money for soldiers,
The idea of smoothies and juices I really like; getting the nutrients (with or without the fibrous parts) in a convenient way really appeals. Not least because it gives me something to do with a fridge full of vegetables other than soup. The only thing that puts me off is the thought I needed another piece of kitchen equipment to be able to make my own. The publishers of Crussh, Nourish Books, got in touch to see if I'd like to try out the new book.
This month’s ‘new in the kitchen’ post is all about organic products. As it’s Organic September it seems only fitting that all the new products I’ve been trying are both tasty and organic. Quite a mix this month too; tea, snacks, oatcakes and pies.
First up I tried the Caramel Rooibos Tea from Kromland Farm. They’ve been growing rooibos in South Africa since 1902 and produce all their teas in Britain. I have to say I tend to prefer
I know it’s technically September now and I’m slightly delayed in posting this but better late than never! I had all sorts of different things arrive on the ATIE kitchen table in August; burgers, soup, yoghurt and gin. All from some fab British companies. Take a look at what was new in the kitchen in August.
Mash Direct Vegetable Burgers
Mash Direct are based in County Down making all sorts of vegetable and potato products using older
It's been a really varied month in the All That I'm Eating kitchen this month with all sorts of different things to try. Luckily I've been able to enjoy most of them sat outside in the sunshine!
First up I tried the new Butter and Mint flavoured crisps from Tyrrells. I wasn't quite sure what the butter would be like on the crisps and whether the flavour would come through but they tasted lovely. Especially outside on a Saturday evening waiting
It's great to try out new products in the kitchen, here's what I've been trying this month.Tyrrells Poshcorn
I love the packaging on the Tyrrells Poshcorn and it’s not all style over substance either. I tried the Sweet and Salt, Lightly Salted, Coconut Caramel and Lemon Cupcake. I think the sweet and salt was my favourite (it always is!) but I loved the combination of caramel and coconut. I wouldn’t normally go for lemon cupcake flavour but
I'm not going to lie. I haven't been donning my gardening gloves recently as much as I have done in the past. Apparently as you get older you get inexplicably busier and growing my own fruit and veg took a back seat while I was getting on with many other things. Rocket Gardens got in touch to see if I would like to try out one of their kits. Their Patio Container garden seemed like the ideal one for me; lots of it can be grown in pots or grow bags
I have tried (I think) all the recipe boxes available now with the Abel and Cole recipe box being the last instalment. I will be doing one review of all that I've tried as a big comparison so keep your eyes peeled for that coming soon. Abel and Cole recipe boxes are slightly different to some of the others; they have veggie, simple, foodie and light to choose from with the recipes in each box predetermined. I like this as it means I don't have to
You may already know this, but, I studied Food Science at University. Think molecular gastronomy meets extreme chemistry with a sprinkling of maths and you’re about there. I enjoyed it immensely. All the tests and experiments that you see on the TV are familiar to me and if there’s something I don’t know about food poisoning it’s not worth knowing. Imagine what a joy it is to sit next to me at a formal dinner, “I wouldn’t take that from
