MyDish Celebrates Bonfire Night with More Interesting Recipe Ideas

Bonfire night is here and for those who plan to host a party, there is undoubtedly lots of planning and preparation to do.

Although the focus and meaning of Bonfire night may have changed in recent times, it is still one of the UK’s oldest celebrations and remains historically important right around the nation. Families and friends up and down the country continue to unite on the 5 th of November to watch thousands of pounds of fireworks light up the night sky.

MyDish, the UK-based online community recipe site, seems to be a constant supporter of UK events that unite people and communities, while providing opportunities for food lovers to indulge in what they love best. After all, this is the foundation that the unique social media platform was built on.

Containing a huge number of recipes and recipe ideas, the MyDish catalogue seems to have experienced rapid growth, with its active online community always contributing to its extensive pool of culinary delights. It is MyDish’s scope for interaction and user-generated content that ensures the site always has something new to offer, making it a great resource on festive occasions like Bonfire Night when people like to eat, drink and be merry.

‘Toffee Apples’ and ‘The Perfect Bonfire Night Sausage Recipe!!’ are a couple of the Bonfire night specific recipes that have been uploaded by MyDish community members. Whether they are good quality or not it is for the users to decide—MyDish allows its members to vote on the recipes they think are most worthy of being shared amongst the rest of the community.

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.

If you need some recipe ideas this coming Friday then visit MyDish.co.uk.  Home to thousands of good recipes, MyDish.co.uk has hundreds of baking recipes and cupcake recipes ensuring that everyone can find the perfect baking recipe for the Coffee Morning .

You can add your own suggestions if you feel the MyDish.co.uk com munity would benefit. In addition to this you can also see loads of great recipes on MyDish that have been donated to Macmillan by big name celebrities. Check out Eva Longoria’s lovely Churros and Gwyneth Paltrow’s gorgeous Pancakes. Alternatively Judi Denchs’ delicious Rum and Chocolate Fudge may be more to your taste.

Enhance Your Cooking Experience with Cooktorial iPhone Application

WEBST Consulting S.A., a mobile application developer, proudly announces the launch of its new project, «Cooktorial», available for iPhone and iPod Touch. Cooktorial is a recipes application, mainly addressed to the novice cook, although it can be of value to the more skilled cook as well, given that its main idea is to suggest what can be cooked based solely on the ingredients already available at home.

In fact, the main attribute setting Cooktorial apart from the rest of the cooking applications available on App Store is that, using Cooktorial, one can browse recipes which can be cooked using ingredients they already have, instead of finding a recipe which will, almost certainly, require a visit to the super-market. Cooktorial implements an easy-to-use interface, a database of over 1.000 recipes, images and thorough description of each recipe, as well as providing the user with the option of filtering the results by preparation time, cuisine type and difficulty level.

Furthermore, with a single tap the user can generate a list with the most commonly found ingredients, which can be easily edited and will be automatically stored for future use.

Last but not least, using Cooktorial does not require an internet connection, allowing thus the user to browse recipes without the use of a 3G or a Wi-Fi network. Cooktorial is a Free application available on Apple’s App Store. Users may enhance it by purchasing any of the two available In Apps, allowing them to perform unlimited number of searches within the app and to remove the Ads.
