Recipe of the Week: Christmas Pudding

 

Christmas Pudding

Stir-Up Sunday & the Christmas Pudding Recipe from the Dairy Book of Home Cookery

As tomorrow is Stir-Up Sunday; the traditional day on which to make your Christmas Pud, I’m sharing our favourite recipe.

It’s taken from our iconic cookbook – the Dairy Book of Home Cookery, which has been a kitchen bible since the 60s and is still one of our best-sellers today.

The reverse advent calendar… why you should try it!

Reverse Advent Box

Advent calendar with a difference that makes a difference

Feeling guilty after a moment of extravagance on an M&S beauty advent calendar for myself, I stumbled across this fantastic initiative; the reverse advent calendar.

 


The Reverse Advent Calendar

Rather than getting a treat each day, you make a donation suitable for your local food bank instead. And you can start this calendar right now, by each day placing a food or hygiene product in a box for the next 25 days. You then deliver the box to your local food bank.

The donations should be tinned
or packet foods with a reasonable
shelf-life and/or toiletries and
household items.

Where to take your donation
Visit www.trusselltrust.org to find out where your local food bank is based. There are often drop-off points in supermarkets too.

We began our family box on Saturday. I hope you can spare a few items too.

No-one should go hungry, and especially not at Christmas.

Dairy Diary 2018 review

Have you bought your dairy diary yet?

It’s perfect for inspiration and planning throughout next year, and also for gifts too.

Here are a few reasons why the Dairy Diary is Britain’s best-loved home diary…

 

 

The cover is so fresh, calm and uplifting. Of course, it’s crammed full of recipes, cook’s tips and fascinating features.

The Dairy Diary 2018 comes with a handy pocket, memorable dates sticker sheet, ribbon page marker and concealed wiro-binding that ensures it lies flat for writing and reading.

It has lots planning tools, useful reminders, contact details, budgeting, holiday dates and plenty of space to write your day-to-day notes and appointments. New for 2018 is a weekly reminders section.

But the reason the Dairy Diary is loved by so many loyal readers is the inclusion of a delicious recipe for each week of the year. Easy to prepare, mouthwatering dishes that have been triple-tested for great results. Your friends and family will love them

There is a great variety, from Cauliflower Cheese Soup to Beef Yakitori (Asian-style kebabs) and Choc n Nut Chelsea Buns to Gin & Tonic Sorbet.

In fact, there is such a great selection that we have made many of them several times over already!
