Kitchen gadgets 'proving popular'

Thursday, 21 August 2014 16:06:25 Europe/London

People in the UK are now increasingly looking to buy kitchen tools, with a new survey revealing that £1.45 billion was spent on culinary gadgets in the last 12 months and the average kitchen boasting seven pieces of kit each.

According to the study, conducted by Barclaycard, this interest is being driven by the number of celebrity chefs there are and the rise in popularity of cooking shows like The Great British Bake Off, which is the country's favourite foodie series and has inspired nine million people to start cooking more.

In all, 1.6 million households have an ice cream maker, 930,000 house a popcorn machine and 70,000 have a candy floss maker, while 46,000 have a cupcake maker. Furthermore, 45% have a hand blender, 37% have a slow cooker, 23% own a Magimix and 20% have a bread maker.

Other favourite gadgets include microwaves, kettles, toasters, coffee machines, George Foreman Grills, juicers and smoothie makers.

Spokesman for the company David Herrick said how great it is to see how many people are baking and cooking at the moment. "Kitchen gadgets are clearly an integral requirement of the modern kitchen, helping keen chefs avoid soggy bottoms and become star bakers," he went on to say.

Certainly, these types of tools can make cooking a much more enjoyable experience and allow you the freedom to try all sorts of different recipes with ease. Why don't you have a look through all your favourite cookbooks and see what you need to buy to start whipping up a real storm in the kitchen?

How To: Grow Your Own Tea

Thursday, 21 August 2014 15:15:49 Europe/London

cups and saucers

Growing your own is definitely big news these days, with people all over the UK setting up their own vegetable gardens and running their own allotments, but have you ever considered growing your own tea? By setting up a herb garden with all sorts of plants like fresh mint, camomile flower and lemon verbena, you could do so with ease - and take advantage of a delicious and healthy beverage day by day.

You might need a greenhouse to do it (although you could try without and see what happens), but just plant your herbs, watch them grow, harvest them between May and December, and then sit down with your cups and saucers to give your new herbal teas a try.

Just tear up a small bunch of your herbs and leave them to infuse in your pot for five minutes. You might never go back to traditional tea-drinking again! And just think what a brilliant talking point this would be when you have friends and family over for dinner - we reckon you'll start something of a trend among your peers for growing your own tea.

For a very lemony drink, grow lemon verbena. If you're lacking in space, you can always grow it in a pot and bring it inside so it survives the winter months. If mint's more to your taste, plant black peppermint, which is really delicious and good for you as well - it can really aid digestion so would be perfect after you've eaten.

Top 2014 Food Trends Revealed

Tuesday, 19 August 2014 11:41:36 Europe/London

Buy dinnerware

Planning a party and about to buy dinnerware to really show off your amazing cooking? Then you're sure to want to know what all the latest foodie trends are so you can really wow your guests and have them clamouring to return to your place for supper over and over again.

Americana is making huge waves in all sorts of arenas this year, from fashion to food, so if you want to prove that you're right at the forefront of all things culinary, a menu comprising mac 'n' cheese, hotdogs and burgers would be a great idea. If you think burgers aren't particularly attractive or all that special for a dinner party, guess again - you can make them worthy by whipping up miniature versions called sliders, which are great as part of a main meal or as an appetiser before the main event.

When it comes to drinks, it's really all about the cocktail at the moment, but a cocktail with a twist. The only way to drink these in London - which is fast becoming the foodie capital of the world - is to have them frozen, perfect given how great the summer has been so far. There's nothing quite like sipping on a frozen cocktail in the garden with your feet up enjoying the sun, after all!

And if you're thinking about puddings, gelato is now being seen absolutely everywhere. This delicious Italian version of ice cream is much creamier and richer, and would be the perfect addition to any up-to-the-minute dinner party.
