BRITISH CORNER SHOP…

The British Corner Shop is a unique online supermarket for expats around the world. Whether you miss Marmite or crave Warburtons crumpets, they can deliver your British favourites straight to your door.

Their website stocks over 10,000 products from Britain’s most loved brands, meaning you can enjoy the British food you miss, wherever you are in the world.

Customer service is at the heart of their business. Since their humble beginnings in 1999, they have refined and developed British Corner Shop, building on the wants and needs of their loyal customers.

From purchasing your shopping through to the delivery, they want their customers to have total confidence when ordering with them.

You don’t have to be a British expat to use the service. If you have friends or relatives overseas who may be missing the taste of home, why not order them a box of British happiness? Their service is perfect for sending parcels of British food to Brits in the Armed Forces and others working abroad.

SCRUMPTIOUS FOOD SATURDAY…

Scrumptious food Saturday, where every Saturday I will write about three websites that include the word ‘scrumptious‘ somewhere in its title. From food and books to quotes, pop over here every Saturday for your ‘Scrumptious Food Saturday’, hit.

The three I am going to cover this week are “Scrumptious Food for Family & Friends”, which is a book by Jane Hobbs. “Scrumptious Food Photography” and “Scrumptious” sprinkles to add to your cakes.

Scrumptious Food for Family and Friends – Jane-Anne Hobbs has created over 90 original, triple-tested recipes designed to take the fuss out of home entertaining and bring smiles to the faces of the people you love. Whether you’re planning a relaxed get-together over a homely dish of soup, stew or salad, or a lavish spread with all the bells and whistles, you’ll find plenty of inspiring new ideas here, plus top tips for planning and preparing a meal to remember.

Scrumptious Food Photography is a food photography website by Rhowena Maccuish who is passionate about food. Your mouth will start salivating the minute you see these amazing pictures which are obviously not available for me to pop on here. Her blog page on the website has a link to a newsletter you can sign up for, and of course, you can follow her on Instagram for all the latest pictures.

My third choice this week is Scrumptious Sprinkletti. They have Sprinklers of the week and this week is Glimmer Strands – Party.  A mix of colours to give all of your bakes the party feel!   A small sample is sent out with every order!

They also sell cupcake cases, muffin tulips, mini muffin cases and cupcake pods. Everything you could possibly need to make your muffins or cupcakes special is available from the Scrumptious website. They even have a page of gift ideas to give to that special person you know that loves baking.

Once you start looking on the Scrumptious website you will find time pass by as you browse through their large selection of items for baking.
