Bolton Food and Drink Festival 2015

Whilst I love shopping for great food treats, one of my main bug bears about food and drink festivals is having to pay to get in- money which I then can’t spend directly with the producers. I’m not interested in chef demos or other paid for extras, I’m all about the shopping and discovering. So the massive markets they have at Bolton Food and Drink Festival are great for me. I can get in for free and spend on producers and leave paying for celebrity chef demos  to those who are interested.

My Nutella Cheesecake Infographic

Well aren’t I a lucky lady? A few weeks ago Bako North Western, a supplier of all sorts of food and ingredients to the catering industry, held a Twitter competition to find the best chocolate cake. I submitted my heart-stopping Nutella cheesecake, and one online vote later, I won!

Yey me! To my absolute pleasure, Bako have immortalised my recipe in an infographic style. Check it out…

I’ve now decided that I want all of my recipes to be like this – it is so clean and fun isn’t is.

And if that wan’t enough, I will soon be receiving a hamper of Callebaut chocolate goodies to do even more baking with. Lucky, as my 2.5kg bag of Callebaut is just about empty – I seriously don’t know how I manage to get through these so quickly and I don’t ever eat it outside of cooking!

So thank you Bako for immortalising my cheesecake.

Feel free to share it / pin it / print it out and stick it on your fridge- just make sure you bake it this weekend!

You can find my original post about the recipe here.

Happy baking everyone x

Melting Middle Mini Burgers

My husband loves barbecuing and I can’t complain; if it means he makes tea then I am all for it. He does make some great burgers to be fair, the recipes from the Weber BBQ Book which is absolutely brilliant. So I thought that I would add to the meat feast and come up with my own burger. I was kindly given some Galbani mozzarella balls at the International Cheese Awards recently and an idea formed. Read More
