Here is our @home haul for the month of May. Treat yourself or someone special who loves to cook this month.
Meal box delivery services are fast becoming more and more popular as people being to realise just how convenient they are. Our editor, Heather, recently tried out the new kid on the block – Gutsy Green (read her review here) and she loved it, so we decided to give you the inside scoop.
Okay, I’ll admit, I can be lazy in the week when it comes to making supper. Technically, it’s not really laziness that’s my biggest problem – my imagination is lazy. Sometimes, just sometimes, after a long day at work, the last thing I am capable of doing is making decisions between chicken or beef; roast or spag bol. We’ve all been there. So when Gutsy Green called me to tell me all about the new start-up, I was all ears.

I have always loved stories, and maybe that’s why wine, in its own special way, speaks to me so loudly. Each vintage has its own story to tell, a small history of the year that gave it birth. It records everything from what was abundant and lacking in the soil, how many hands were around to care for the grapes, what the weather was like and, of course, the investment and creativity of the winemakers themselves.
Since our one true love is chocolate, we want to put it in everything this Valentine’s Day. So we decided to challenge chef Ballot to create a unique chocolate-inspired savoury dish just for MyKitchen. He rolled a scrumptious pork loin in a cocoa-coffee rub, that resulted in the yummiest, crispiest crust when it arrived on the plate. Served with carrots, baby marrow and a white chocolate and cranberry sauce (white chocolate, coffee and pork are a match made in heaven, by the way), we ate every last bite.
