Selecting an appropriate wine is always tricky – especially if you want to buy wine for a special occasion or as a gift. Red or white, wooded or unwooded, fresh and fruity or big and heavy? You don't want to poison your partner or client with a dodgy homebrew you found in a corner café. No, you buy the best. You buy the founder's reserve or the winemaker's selection. It sounds impressive, but do reserve labels actually mean anything?
A super versatile Good Food Diet chicken recipe
Bite-sized pieces of chicken breast fillet, stir-fried with onion and seasoned with bold, flavourful green or red pesto and lemon juice. For creaminess, sprinkle with a little feta cheese. For crunchiness, top with chopped, toasted almonds. And for extra zing, sprinkle with freshly grated lemon zest. Super easy and super satisfying! The freshness of the lemon balances the richness of the pesto perfectly. Any pesto will do - choose your favourite one: basil, Greek, Thai, coriander, rocket, red pepper or sundried tomato. Buon appetito!
The names of colours have always fascinated me. Not the names of the colours in the rainbow – like red or blue – but the names of red and blue when used to describe the colour of lipstick, paint, cars or even qualities. Think Jazz Red lip gloss, a Volcano Red car, Signal Red paint or red-hot potato chips. Who are the people that come up with these names? What do these descriptive words say about the way we experience colour?
