what’s new?

I’ve been busy lately so here’s a quick round-up of some my favourite food things I’ve been enjoying.

Testing the cheapest blender on the market

I’ve been using this dirt cheap blender for a while now, so I thought I’d record my thoughts on what you get for your money. Watch below.

Exclusively show

I haven’t attended a proper food event since before the pandemic and I have to say I miss catching up with other food people. Exclusively 2023 was a trade show and my head was spinning from looking at all the different brands and products on show. Two trends stood out to me: everyone was keen to promote their green credentials, and every single brand seemed to be flogging a water bottle. Highlights for me included Denby’s beautiful crockery:

Henckels latest knife set:

and Vego cookware helmed by the charming Ankur.


I love finding a new YouTuber to watch, and Matt’s videos are a trove of fun, good recipes and silliness. Go check out his channel.

Bacon & egg ice cream

I was amazed with this Heston recipe. Part breakfast, part dessert, this wacky ice cream recipe is everything brilliant about my favourite chef. Click the pic to read:

Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Star

Yes, it’s Apprentice with food. I mean, barely any changes to the format. But there is actual food and food business at the heart of all the challenges. Now if they can just lose all the silly jumping off cliffs team building rubbish it’ll be even better, but Gordon loves that stuff. Series 2 has finished now so have a binge on iPlayer.

Beef dripping sauce

I love a steak dinner. And I quite like the chain Miller & Carter – and the beef dripping sauce they do is knockout, so I had to have a go at making it myself. I’m really chuffed with the result, give it a go and let me know what you think.
