  • I recently attended a preview screening of a short film call PLANEAT which is the story of three men’s search for a diet which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet.

    The negative effects on health of eating too much red meat has been in the press recently when the Government released guidelines as to what is a healthy amount – apparently no more than 70g of red or processed meat a day. PLANEAT covers not only the health issues, but also the sustainability of a diet that is high in meat consumption.

  • This is a really easy starter that is a little bit different. Slice the beetroot, prepare the goats cheese stuffing and make the rocket pesto in advance to make it stress free when you come to serving. If you’re not keen on chestnuts, experiment with other ingredients, lightly toasted pine nuts would work really well. Just pick something that would create a little bit of texture within the dish.

  • Ratatouille is such an easy and versatile vegetarian dish. Always make up a big batch, then freeze it in portion sizes, it tastes just as good when it’s been defrosted. Ratatouille is usually a side dish, but this recipe has it as the star. Serve this with some crusty bread if you need a bit of extra ballast.
