BRITISH EGG WEEK OCTOBER 2016…

british-egg-week

It’s back again, and ran from 10-17th October British Egg Week in association with British Lion Eggs.

British Egg Week culminates with a celebration of World Egg Day at a #PutanEggonit street food event at Hawker House on 14th October.

The event, which has been created for key journalists and food bloggers, but is also open to members of the public, continued throughout Saturday 15 October.

The event featured Seb Holmes, street food pro and #PutanEggonit ambassador, cooking up two of his six British Egg Week recipes, an egg-topped smokey aubergine salad, and a wok fried egg and spicy minced pork with garlic and ginger, at a British Lion branded street food stand.

Top chefs have cooked up lots of egg-citing recipes for us to try – just visit the Egg Info website for the recipe details.

# GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF #TudorWeek…

_90797195_bake_off_group

So we are fast approaching the end of the brilliant ‘Great British Bake Off 2016′,  boo hoo… I will be so sad when it comes to an end not just because it’s the end of this particular series but because it’s the end to the ‘Great British Bake Off’, as we know it.

A massive 3.5k of other peoples recipes have been added to their site so far. Tuesday nights will never be the same again. Tomorrow’s theme is #TudorWeek! in what looks like a very empty marquee. The question now is who is in the running to win this year’s Bake Off. Every week I seem to get a different idea of who I think will win and that person has sometimes been the one to be eliminated so I’m not holding my breath that I will get it right on the night.

I guess it’s a bit like chocolate in that all good things have to come to an end.

The Bramley Apple Pie Week is from 3rd – 9th October, 2016.

To celebrate Bramley Apple Week 2016, the top 1,200 chefs in the country, according to The 2016 Good Food Guide, were invited to show their support by sharing their signature Bramley recipes.

Recipes were shared by Michelin starred chefs including Mark Poynton, Galton Blackiston and Atul Kochher and award winning TV chef Cyrus Todiwala. These innovative and unique dishes showcased the versatility of Bramley and inspired people to get cooking.

A competition ran across owned social media channels, encouraging interaction from consumers. Cooks and fans were asked to post a picture of their favourite Bramley dish with the hashtags #LoveBramley and #BramleyAppleWeek, generating interaction around using Bramley in a wide variety of ways. A winner was chosen by Mark Poynton, Michelin starred chef/founder of Alimentumrestaurant, Cambridge.

Two high profile bloggers were also engaged in the activity: Holly Bell, Recipes from a Normal Mum, created a video for the Bramley YouTube channel for how to cook a Bramley apple and cinnamon crepe cake; Lavender and Lovage promoted Bramley Apple Week to her large following, creating a savoury sausage and sage baked apple with roast chicken. Both encouraged support of Bramley Apple Week across their social media channels. Lots more information on the Bramley Apple website.
