Recipe of the Week: Pan-Fried Pork with Apple Slaw

Pan-Fried Pork with Apple Slaw

It’s estimated that there are over 2½ thousand varieties of apple in the UK, and 7,000 worldwide!

 

My own Grandad, in fact, created his own variety of apple, named RuthLyn after his two daughters. I wonder if the apple tree is still there? I hope so.

Apples were introduced to Britain by the Romans, who first discovered them growing in Syria.

The Romans were integral in spreading the fruit worldwide, using the Silk Road as a means of transport from East to West.

The popularity of cultivating apples grew in Victorian times, with the creation of many new varieties. I’m a huge fan of the Cox apple, though of course Bramleys make a great crumble. What’s your favourite?

Delicious in sweet and savoury dishes, in our gorgeous new cookbook; A Zest for Life, we pair apple with pork in a delicious crunchy slaw.

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

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.
