Hip Hop Makes Maturing Cheese Taste Better!

Hip Hop Makes Maturing Cheese Taste Better! Really? Yes. As proven by science. An experiment in Switzerland called 'Cheese in Surround Sound' discovered that when exposed to music (specifically hip hop) ageing cheese tastes better. Wait. What? The experiment placed nine wheels of Emmental cheese in wooden crates and pumped five different genres of music at them 24/7 for six months. The cheese exposed to six months of A Tribe Called Quest had "a discernibly stronger smell and stronger, fruitier taste than the Read More...

Say Happy Easter with a Vegan Creme Egg!

Vegan Creme Egg To say we're excited about a Vegan Creme Egg is an understatement. But still. We're excited. The utterly wonderful Mummy Meagz has launched a vegan creme egg just in time for Easter.

Their sales have recently sky rocketed due to online sales. What's more, they're twice the size of a Cadbury's creme egg. What an Eggcellent idea! Read More...

Homemade Halloumi is sooooo good.

Homemade Halloumi Let's get one thing out of the way. I adore Halloumi. No. That doesn't do it justice. I love Halloumi more than my first born. Okay. Maybe that's a wee bit too far. My love for Halloumi is somewhere between adoration and love for my first born. Let's look at the facts. It's cheese. It's cheese you can fry. I'm not sure I need to say anything more. If it could make me a coffee in the morning I'd marry it (sorry wife. Sorry Read More...

Veganism Hits The High Street

High Street and Veganism Far from being a 'fashionable bandwagon' as some claim, the record numbers of people moving to a Vegan lifestyle shows that this may simply be the future happening today. Nothing shows this as much as the glut of High Street stores offering Vegan options. It's simple economics: if there wasn't a market, there wouldn't be products. Recently we had Greggs launched a Vegan Sausage Roll. Whether you're Vegan or not you're likely to have heard about them, Sticking with the Read More...
