I’m celebrating 20 years at Dairy Diary!

Today it is 20 years since I joined the Dairy Diary!

Emily discussing recipes with food stylist Sarah.

And what a fabulous two decades it has been. I’m so lucky to work on such excellent products and in such a great team.

As it’s a very small team, I’ve experienced almost every task possible, from making the drinks, to sourcing props for photography, to deciding on cover designs, to recipe testing and even go-karting with milkmen!

Right: discussing ingredients at a photography shoot with food stylist Sarah Lewis.

Sharing my two favourite recipes of all time

How do I choose my favourite recipes? This was VERY difficult…

As you know, I’ve tasted many hundreds of delicious recipes over the 20 years, but I decided on these two recipes that I make most frequently at home.

Lemon Chicken
Delicious baked lemon chicken, topped with crisp pancetta and served with crispy potato wedges.

Gooey Gingerbread
This Gooey Gingerbread is much better than anything shop-bought and will be devoured with gusto!

World Whisky Day

World Whisky Day

Celebrating World Whisky Day, the Dairy Diary way!


Did you know?

  • Whisky or whiskey is a distilled alcoholic drink made from fermented grain mash.
  • The smoky flavour found in some types of whisky, especially true of Scotch, is due to the peat smoke used to treat the malt.
  • Whisky is most often aged in wooden casks, often made of charred white oak.
  • With a value of £4.359 billion (2017), Scotch whisky exports accounted for over 20 per cent of all UK food and drink exports.
  • Some 34 bottles of whisky are exported from Scotland every second.

Whisky in Gaelic reads ‘uisge beathe’,
which means ‘water of life’

We will be celebrating World Whisky Day in the Dairy Diary office by baking these gorgeous Dundee Marmalade Flapjacks, and making our very own  Whisky Marmalade. Absolutely delicious!

The top 3 cakes from 50 years of dairy cookbooks!

I couldn’t even count how many cake recipes we have produced since the 1960s when the first dairy cookbook was published.

Fans love them though, as they know that they have been triple-tested (at least!) and will always work.

We get many requests for copies of long-lost recipes, precious to people’s family history.

And these three cakes are some of the most requested by our customers:
