When did food become the common enemy? When did food become such an easy stick to beat parents – and their children – with? Don’t get me wrong, I am all for trying to help children eat good diets, consisting of freshly made food. For years now, I have been a vocal advocate of doing all we can to try to ensure children have a healthy relationship around food – and I believe this begins right from the days of weaning them as babies. But surely the pendulum is starting to swing too far the other way? If we are not careful, the messages we are sending out to our children of some food being *bad* and some food being *good* risks condemning a generation of children to an unhealthy relationship around food – exactly the opposite to what we are trying to achieve today. This week, a school in Essex has started to remove things from children’s packed lunch boxes. Scotch Eggs? Too high in fat. Pepperami? Too processed. How must the children feel? Suddenly there is a sense of shame around their lunch boxes, and it’s a public shame at that. And shame is not a good feeling around food. In the wrong, vulnerable minds, surely such outright control around food cannot be healthy? When control itself is at the heart of many eating disorders (at both ends of the spectrum, for both anorexia and bulimia), do we really want to be introducing such control around food for young minds? What is wrong with taking a balanced, middle ground?...

ثنائي منتدى استراتيجيات الخيار Mini drumroll… I am so excited to announce my new book which will be out on June 5th. It is called THE AFTER SCHOOL COOKBOOK. This book has nearly 120 recipes in it, all perfect for feeding hungry kids and busy families: Speed of Night is all about the quickest of quick cook recipes. Ready When You Get Home is full of make-ahead recipes to eliminate the stress from home time. Saving Your Bacon has delicious but thrifty recipes. Here Today, Gone Still Here Tomorrow makes the most of leftovers and stretches meals over more than one day. Inspired Lunchboxes are tasty lunches for school time (or any other time for that matter). Mind The Gap features recipes to eat on the run, in the gap between the end of school and supper, or football practise or going to Brownies. Things to eat when a meal would be too much but when a hungry tummy needs filling. Ready Made Meals Made By You is full of classics which are much tastier when home-made than store-bought, 2+2=7 is the chapter for those very unplanned playdates when suddenly you have more mouths to feed. And finally, the book wouldn’t have been complete without a chapter of Genius Treats, containing all the sweet treats you could ever need. In a nutshell, I simply wanted to write a cookbook I would actually want to buy for myself! The focus has been entirely on how to keep stress levels low at home time, while still creating food which the whole family will love to eat. And of course all the elements you have come to...
The story behind my Sainsbury’s TV advert (it goes live on Wednesday)

The story behind my Sainsbury’s TV advert (it goes live on Wednesday)

ننظر إلى هذا الآن I am delighted to say that my new Sainsbury’s TV advert goes live tomorrow, Wednesday 8th January. As yet, I don’t know exactly during which programmes but I hope to know some time during the day tomorrow. It’s funny to look at the advert now and think that the 40 seconds of it are a result of 3 months of work, a 16 hour shoot day and, at a conservative estimate, the work of over 150 people. On the day of the shoot alone there were over 80 people crammed into the house in Harlesden where we filmed the video! Thankfully the day was shorter for Archie and Matilda – they were there for about four hours in total, which is the maximum time by law they were allowed to be present. Part of me thinks their highlight was actually getting to eat lunch on the top deck of the double decker catering bus. They loved that! Matilda was also thrilled to be given two fairy outfits by the director but took some convincing not to wear them immediately as they weren’t *quite* the look they were hoping for in the final advert! I think what surprised me the most about the day was the attention to detail. I probably ran through my recipe five or six times in total, all from different camera angles. Continuity was a very important part of the day. Each take had to follow on coherently from the previous one. This is where the “script bitch” came into her own (it’s what she called herself, I am not being rude here). Her job was...

I must say, this is one of my favourite things to cook at home as it has everything you’d want from a home-cooked dish. It’s simple. foolproof, effortless and always gets scoffed down by the kids. The meat is tender and the balance of flavours is just lovely – they don’t even notice the big dollop of mustard in the dish! It is not too creamy, there is no alcohol left after the cooking and none of the flavours are too strong. Just a lovely, simple, child-friendly dish, perfect for these cold, early Spring days… A chef friend of mine, Hendrick Dutson from the lovely Crown pub in Henlow first made this dish for me. And this is an adaptation of his recipe… Preparation time 5 minutes Total cooking time 2 1/4 hours Serves 4 Preheat your oven to 170ºC/ 325ºC/ Gas Mark 3 500-600g diced shoulder of pork 2 leeks, finely sliced 1 onion, finely chopped 5 rashers of smoked streaky bacon, cut into small cubes 350ml cider 350ml chicken stock or water Fresh chopped thyme, or dried 1 tsp wholegrain mustard 2 dollops half-fat crème fraîche Salt and pepper to taste In an oven proof pan (with a lid), fry the bacon on a medium heat with a drizzle of oil until it is cooked and a little crispy. Remove it from the pan and set it aside in a bowl. Turn the heat up and add the pork. Cook it until it is sealed on all sides and starting to go brown. Add...
