The Big (Virtual) Lunch and some good news

The Big (Virtual) Lunch

 

At such a difficult time, where people are struggling in so many ways, it’s heartwarming to hear of so many positive stories in local communities.

There are countless acts of community kindness in our own little village every day, but these are most memorable for me: The tiny village bakery now delivers food parcels to the elderly and vulnerable.

We found a leaflet featuring local walks on our doorstep one evening, and one local even dresses-up as Walley (from Where’s Walley?) on his daily walk so that people can spot where he is!

Now more than ever, we need to make
time for each other and say thanks.

The Big Lunch is the UK’s thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities; a time where people come together (virtually, of course) to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.

So, let’s get the nation talking with a bite to eat and have some fun with The Big Virtual Lunch this coming weekend.

 

For details on how to hold a virtual lunch for your community take a look at the Eden Project Communities webpage

I would opt for something simple and delicious. You don’t want to be slaving for hours in the kitchen. Give these two recipes a try, they are quick to prepare but sooo good.

 

Sea Bass and Chocolate Fruit

 

Pan-Fried Sea Bass & Scallops with Hollandaise Sauce

Fresh Fruit with Chocolate Dip

 

Both these recipes are from our super-popular cookbook, Just for One or Two.

Recipe of the Week: Sausage & Artichoke Rolls

Sausage & Artichoke Rolls

Sausage & Artichoke Rolls

 

Sausage roll – a firm favourite with us Brits. Reputedly, Greggs (usually) sell 2.5 million every week! And when George Osborne threatened to tax them in 2012, there was a countrywide outcry until he backed down.

Encasing meat in pastry dates back to Ancient Greece, but the ‘modern’ sausage roll was created in Great Britain.

Raved about by our testers, this recipe is a delicious twist on the classic sausage roll.

Eat one or two portions and freeze the rest for a later date.

Succulents & Seashells Planter

create year-round garden interest

How to create year-round interest

 

With a few evergreen plants, succulents in this case and some pretty seashells, you can create a really attractive planter than looks great year-round.

Succulents make great choices for even the tiniest containers, from troughs and pots to even hanging baskets because they have spent millions of years adapting to environments with very shallow soil and with very low moisture and fertility.

Other than providing them with a sunny spot, all you need to grow succulents is to stop them getting too wet in winter.

Many will survive a surprising amount of cold as long as their roots are kept dry.

Recipe of the Week: Chow Mein

Vegetable Chow Mein

Chow Mein

 

This recipe only takes 15 minutes to create and requires minimal prep, so you can treat yourself to a tasty ‘take-away’ at home.

The classic combination of crunchy vegetables, tender noodles and egg works perfectly.

 

RECIPE

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Chow mein are Chinese stir-fried noodles with vegetables and sometimes meat or tofu; the name is a romanisation of the Taishanese chāu-mèn.

The dish is popular throughout the Chinese diaspora and appears on the menus of most Chinese restaurants abroad.

It is particularly popular in India, Nepal, the UK and the US.

Different regions cooked Chow Mein differently, the chefs in Hong Kong fried the noodles crispy, while the other regions opposite of Hong Kong steamed the noodles, all the while all Chinese chefs used a hot wok to cook the finished product.
