The National Trust joins fight to save the great British pud

The National Trust has announced it is backing a Government Minister’s call to save the great British pudding.

After being appointed in a recent cabinet reshuffle, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson urged people to be patriotic with their puddings, choosing traditional British recipes over foreign imports. In an interview with Farmers Weekly, Paterson said: “There is a huge dessert deficit in this country. We have a huge opportunity to replace imported desserts with desserts made here.”

He encouraged diners to swap desserts such as crème brulee and panna cotta, which use imported dairy products, for traditional favourites like apple crumble, treacle tart and spotted dick.

The news comes as the National Trust prepares to launch its autumn pudding campaign, with free puddings throughout the month of October with every lunchtime meal purchased in its selected cafes and restaurants.

The flavour of the month will be great British puddings, all made from seasonal ingredients – a reminder to visitors at National Trust places just how good a British pud can be.

A recent National Trust online poll of people’s favourite autumn puddings found that dishes using seasonal ingredients remained the popular first choice, despite the modern trend of year-round food availability using foreign imports*.

Clive Goudercourt, Development Chef for the National Trust, said: “We pride ourselves on baking our own food using the best of British ingredients, many grown on National Trust estates and farms.

“We hope our delicious, home-cooked puddings will inspire people to choose traditional recipes and celebrate Britain’s best food across the seasons.”

Clive added: “British, seasonal food is tastier, fresher and more nutritious. It is better value, better for the environment and better for your wallet.”

Delicious examples of fresh autumn food can be enjoyed for free when customers spend over £5.75 on a main lunchtime meal at over 100 National Trust locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

To find out more about this offer, and to download free recipes to help save the Great British pud, visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/pudding and download a voucher (offer is valid from Monday 1st October until Wednesday 31st October 2012).

There’s also the chance to walk off those autumn puddings on a Great British Walk with the National Trust. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greatbritishwalk for more information and to download hundreds of free walking routes.

On Friday September 30th MyDish.co.uk Will Be Turning To Its Baking Recipes In Support Of The Macmillan Cancer Support Event The ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’

Established in 1990, the Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘Coffee Morning’ event quickly grew in popularity and soon became known as the ‘world’s largest coffee morning’. Last year alone saw 43,000 people get involved in this great cause helping to raise over eight million pounds.

Cancer is still a huge health risk for the UK population with statistics showing 1 in 3 people suffering from the illness at some point in their lives. These individuals require financial, emotional and medical support which Macmillan attempts to address and provide.

It is for this reason and many others that the founder of MyDish.co.uk, Carol Savage, is a big supporter of the charity and will be baking her favourite recipes for the Coffee Morning this coming Friday. Donning the chef’s hat and sourcing her favourite baking recipes, Carol will be baking her best cupcake recipes and selling them to support the Macmillan trust.

Asked about the Coffee Morning event Carol Savage said ‘Cancer is something that affects us all in some form or another.  My Mother-in law Maureen died of Leukeimia and she inspired me with her recipes to start MyDish.co.uk. Cancer is a very real illness that is just too common and we should do what we can to help and offer support .A few cupcakes here and there is not much to ask’

Making even the smallest donation can still make a big difference.  £25 alone can pay for the cost of a Macmillan nurse for an hour, helping to provide essential medical, practical and emotional support for cancer sufferers.

£51 can purchase a liquidiser for someone who can unfortunately no longer eat solid food as a result of their cancer treatment. These services and many like them are just some of the essentials cancer sufferers need and the Macmillan trust helps provide them.

Christmashamper.com Deliver Their Solution For A Vegetarian-Friendly Christmas

Traditionally, Christmas is something of a meat-eaters holiday with turkey, gammon and goose all familiar fayre around the dining table.

Nowadays, some 11% of the UK population is vegetarian however; throwing something of a carrot-shaped spanner into the works when it comes to the iconic Christmas roast.

Thankfully, the gourmet gurus at Christmas Hamper have come up with the perfect solution this holiday season – a range of veggie hampers that make for vegetarian-friendly gifting and dining.

Christmas Hamper’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained their reasons for including vegetarian hampers across the range:

“Consumers are becoming more and more conscious about what they put on their plates with regard to whether something is organic, locally sourced, ethically farmed and so forth.

“Vegetarianism has been around for some time now and it would be a real indication that we were out of touch with over 10% of our potential consumers if we weren’t to acknowledge this.

“We’re proud to offer vegetarian options right across our range; be it our Scottish Christmas hampersluxury Christmas hampers and even our savoury Chirstmas hamperrange. In that sense, there really is something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds.”

As well as offering a selection of over one hundred mouth-watering hampers, gift trays and baskets, Christmas Hamper have also become famed for their corporate packages that give businesses of any size the opportunity to customise and create bespoke Christmas gifts for colleagues and clients.

As Samantha Barries explains, being able to celebrate the dietary choices of individual clients goes a long way in demonstrating their value to your business:

“When it comes to corporate Christmas gifts there’s plenty of scope for creativity and individuality but a lot of businesses fall into the trap of opting for something more or less ‘off the shelf’.

ChristmasHamper.com – Luxury Christmas Hampers

With only twenty-three days of shopping left to go, things are really starting to heat up for consumers battling against the icy conditions, determined to buy friends, family and colleagues that perfect Christmas gift.

Could The Dilemma Of Buying For That 'Person Who Has Everything' Finally Be Over? Christmas Hamper - christmashamper.com - Certainly Think So

Whilst Christmas wish-lists and dropping the odd hint might go some way to help make Christmas gift giving that little bit more straightforward, each year still poses the dilemma – what to get for the person who has everything?

Thankfully, gourmet gurus – Highland Fayre – think they’ve solved the problem with their range of luxury Christmas Hampers; jam-packed with festive fayre and other goodies to suit absolutely any budget.

Discussing the versatility of Christmas hampers, Highland Fayre’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained:

“The Christmas rush can become a stressful time of year, even for the most organised amongst us. This isn’t helped when you’re attempting to buy for that fabled ‘person who has everything’ or even someone who’s not sure what they’d like for Christmas.

“In situations like these, luxury Christmas hampers serve as an excellent gift; loaded with treats that can be enjoyed throughout the festive season and beyond. Our bespoke hamper service also allows you to tailor your gift to the personal preferences or dietary requirements of the person you’re gifting to and when presented in one of our Christmas gift baskets, trays, hampers or cartons they really make something of a show-stopper.”

The solutions posed by christmashamper.com needn’t stop there either as the flexibility of this style of gift giving means customers can peruse hundreds of pre-made collections at their leisure, from the comfort and warmth of their home.

Furthermore, as Samantha Barrie explains, this year’s Christmas hampers collection could be just the ticket for people buying for other potentially tricky recipients:

“As well a buying for people who have everything, there’s often other people on our to-buy for list who we might not know very well but still want to gift to – a child’s school teacher or long distance relative being a good example of this.

“In cases such as these, Christmas hampers act as a thoughtful gift and can be made as personal as need be. We’ve found that our range of Scottish Christmas Gift Hampers, for example, are particularly popular with people gifting to Scottish expats who may have lived out of the country for some years now but are still delighted to receive a gift reminding them of where they grew up.”

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery at Hackney Wicked

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival had its third successful year of operation this month, and taking part was one of the local area’s most successful companies, H Forman and Sons. Their premises opposite the Olympic park house the Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery.

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival has become a firm fixture on the London summer calendar, despite only having operated for three years. More than 30,000 people are thought to have attended this year, the highest yet seen at the festival. There are numerous art exhibitions, theatre and cabaret performances all over the Hackney Wick area, as well as interactive family events and markets. The emphasis this year, as ever, was on including local businesses and the local community.

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery is open all year round, but it put on a special exhibition for the festival called ‘I see myself there, where I am not’. Rather than being a single artist exhibition, this included ten different artists’ work, all based around a theme – exploring ideas of heterotopias and ‘the other’. The gallery was the venue for the launch of the whole festival on Friday 30 July, hosting a successful opening night with lots of enjoyment to be had by all attendees.

The gallery continued to be very popular over the weekend – and not just for the art. After enjoying the gallery, many visitors chose to take in a meal at the brasserie, which operated all weekend, or take home some gourmet foods to enjoy later. Kids loved the family drawing day, where they got to take part in a competition to draw a picture of the Olympic stadium.

Fine British Food to Buy Online

There is increasing interest in traditional, fine British foods from small producers. Supermarkets dominate the market for food in Britain, but more and more people are appreciating the value of using small companies that aim to produce high quality food using artisan methods passed down between generations. Forman and Field, a London-based mail order food company, specialises in providing this kind of food.

Founded in 2002, Forman and Field aim to provide traditional foods from small British suppliers in an ‘online farmers’ market’.

Forman and Son, a traditional salmon-smokers and supplier of smoked salmon, other fish and seafood to some of the best restaurants and chefs in London. H. Forman and Son is a family business in operation in East London since 1905.

Many people have an unfounded, poor view of British food, and Forman and Field seek to rectify this. They provide a wide range of traditional foods, which would be regarded by many as among the finest in the world. The company is committed to ensuring that traditional methods of production survive. The salmon smoked by H. Forman and Son is a good example, using their famous ‘London Cure’, a recipe invented by Harry Forman, the company’s founder, in 1905. Many of their suppliers use similarly traditional methods to produce their products, and many have been recognised by various awards.

Is Belgian Chocolate the ‘King of Chocolate’?

For a small landlocked country nestled within the folds of Europe, Belgium has a big claim to fame. Talk chocolate, and Belgian seems to be the adjective that springs to mind when it comes to describing the absolute top quality.

Is Belgian Chocolate the ‘King of Chocolate'?

From the chocolate bars available in shiny wrappers at supermarkets to the expensive candies and pralines that can be bought at exclusive downtown chocolate boutiques, the range of chocolate available on the market is as varied in taste as it is in the country of origin. But in Europe, the debate over where the best chocolate in the world is produced is a topic of heated debate and much discussion.

Belgians proudly claim to have the finest range of chocolates, considered by many chocolatiers to be the gourmet standard by which all other chocolates are measured. The French, on the other hand, hold up their centuries old tradition of making chocolate to support their claim to supremacy. Swiss chocolates, which are famous world over for their quality, often lose their way in the debate when the question comes to the basic recipe, for the Swiss love to make exotic and deliciously eccentric chocolates, a passion said to have been borrowed from the Belgians and French. Germany and Austria also both have a stake in the chocolate industry, but Belgium generally still comes out on top.

“I have always been a huge fan of Belgian chocolates. And while Godiva and Neuhas have some mouth-watering concoctions, my favourite chocolate holiday in Belgium was a two week trip through the country, tasting chocolates made by smaller chocolatiers and some very distinct and wonderfully flavoured chocolates. I believe the Belgians create the same magic with chocolate that the French do with their wines”, says Nicolas Vernaire, a chocolatier who runs an exclusive boutique in Oxfordshire.

Like Nicolas, many chocolatiers believe the Belgian chocolate is made unique by the quality of ingredients used and a fanatical adherence to Old World chocolate making methods. “Mass production of chocolates is sacrilege for a Belgian. And much like wineries, you can walk into chocolate shops in Belgium and take part in taster sessions and classes on chocolate making”. Like everything good, the best chocolate also happens to be among the most expensive, and that is precisely the reason why, when you look up a dessert menu and see a chocolate cake that seems a little bit more expensive than you’d expected, remember to ask the waiter if the chocolate used is from Belgium. The chances are that it could have some mouth watering praline or truffles in it, making the extra pounds that you have to shell out worth every bite you take.

Spanish Food at Christmas Time: A Festive Treat

Perhaps one of the most flavoursome cuisines in the world, Spanish Food has plenty to offer in the way of enjoyment, and is for that reason a great addition to any Christmas stocking. With superb wines, from Riojas to Moscatel dessert wine, and excellent olives, Spanish food is a notable indulgence that can really put the enjoyment back into Christmas winters.

deliciosoimage.jpg (300×300)

The range of cheeses and meats in Spanish food is also impressive: for meat lovers, there’s no better gift than a well preserved chorizo sausage, or some finely prepared Serrano ham, and the Manchego, Idiazabal and Murcia al Vino cheeses are some of the best in the world, and will certainly get the love and appreciation they deserve from the cheese addicts among your presents list.

When stuck for something to buy those at Christmas who insist that it’s a time for enjoyment and fun, then, remember that specialist and genuinely quality food and drink are excellent luxuries that most people will appreciate, and that Spanish food is some of the best cuisine out there.

The Mediterranean is so rich in cuisine, in fact, that some of its most famous exports – its meats and cheeses – are easily matched by its vegetarian dishes, such as asparagus, piquillo peppers and artichokes.

For those with a sweet tooth, too, there are plenty of nuts, sweets and honeys and jams that can satisfy even the most ardent sugar fiend.

Sugar Rush? Sweet Tooth? Retro Sweets are back!

Friday the 5th of February 1953 may not stand out in your mind but when you think about it this date actually probably had a BIG impact on your childhood; why? Because it marks the day when the Government ended sweet rationing of course! Meaning the sugar rush felt by kids all across the nation was well and truly back. It is also the reason that when you were growing up you had so much choice and freedom with the amount of sweets that were on offer to you.

Welcome to the Retro Sweet Shop!

Black jacks, cola bottles, dolly mixtures, caramac bars, drumstick lollies, flying saucers, love hearts, fruit salads, dip dabs, milk bottles and much more – Did you think they’d disappeared? Think again! All of your favourites are now back, ready for you to relive the old days.

I bet the mere mention of the above has taken you down memory lane and dug up concepts of your childhood. Going to the tuck shop in your break time to buy rainbow drops, trips to the corner shop to pick up some gobstoppers, walking home f r o m school with a bag of cola cubes and hanging out with friends sharing all your favourites; sweets have been a part of our childhood and we all had our favourites but why should we abandon these sweet delights just because we are older? Let’s carry on the tradition and start satisfying our sweet tooth again!

Thanks to the Internet boom there are now websites emerging that provide you with a huge range of retro chews, chocs, lollies, yummy gummies, treats and bubblegum as well as retro bars. The choice is so big that it is guaranteed to satisfy even the sweetest tooth and best of all they can make the perfect gift.

Treat your loved ones with traditional, retro sweet gifts

Whether you are looking to buy for yourself or someone special, retro sweets are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. A prime example of when they make the perfect gift is a 21st or 30th birthday of one of your oldest friends, someone who you used to go to the corner shop with to buy sherbet sticks. Buying a gift hamper of retro sweets will bring back all the childhood memories of all the time the two of you spent together; what a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion!

Maybe you are looking to treat your special other half? Love hearts, Parma violets and strawberries and cream hard boiled old fashioned sweets are a cute, romantic way of staying I love you.

If you are looking to say thank you to a family member, such as your Grandma then think back to when you were young and how she always carried your favourite traditional sweets in her bag; why not repay the favour? Visit an online store and make your own gift bag of sweets, which includes all of her favourites and all of those classic sweets she used to keep especially for you. Not only does this provide her with lovely treats but it also demonstrates how much you appreciate everything she used to do for you and how much you love spending time with her.

What if the person you are buying the retro sweets for doesn’t really have any memories of them f r o m their childhood? Maybe they were too young or just never really indulged. In cases such as this I say let them start to create some memories now! Introduce them to the sweets that meant a lot to you when you were growing up because remember your never too young or too old to get stuck into some sweets!

If you are looking to treat someone with a selection of sweets then DON’T rush out to your local shop; all you’ll find there are a limited selection of modern sweets, what you need to do it get yourself to an online sweet shop. Visit a site that specialises in retro sweets f r o m decades such as the 70’s and 80’s and you will be amazed at what you can find. All the classics and all your favourites will be on there; all that’s left for you to do then is to pick which ones you want, so start looking now and create the perfect gift and trip down memory lane.

Finding myself inundated with requests to make my products commercially available, I established Raw Creations.” – Jason Janiak

In addition, they are produced in a Certified Organic facility, which is free from any of these allergens as well. Also, we extend the purity of our products through all avenues of production by using only organic soaps, cleansers, and towels as well”Jason Janiak
