Yesterday some of my lovely family got together for a lovely lighthearted evening of fun, courtesy of Popchips! Popchips have recently launched two lovely Limited Edition flavours; Sea Salt, Garlic and Rosemary, and Sea Salt, Caramelised Onion and Thyme. The flavours are inspired by gourmet recipes, and use natural seasoning – so they have loads of flavour but less than half the fat of fried crisps. I was challenged to cook something light using the ingredients from one of the… View Post

They didn’t have to ask me twice. Les Nouveaux Fromagers have recently brought their successful monthly subscription box of cheese to the UK from France.

I love… View Post
