Eat Me: Yuzu

24 October 2017

The new superfood that everyone is talking about is yuzu!

This Japanese fruit also known as citrus junos, has been used for centuries in Asian cuisine and has only recently started to become available on the high street in the UK.

The levels of Vitamin C and delicious flavour that it introduces to dishes is bound to make this a must-buy for any foodies looking to experiment!

Drink Me: Hot drinks with a twist

24 October 2017

Winter? We say bring it on.

Mainly because we’re excited about Hot Toddies and the possibilities of making hot chocolate even more exciting and tasty!

Whether that is by adding a little splash of Amaretto to a Toddy , some Nutella (yes, that’s actually a thing) or just load of delicious sweetened cream and marshmallows to a decadent hot chocolate, the possibilities are endless.  So, come on winter…we need the excuse!

Got a fantastic hot drink recipe you want to share? We’d love to see what you’ve come up with! Why not show us on Instagram followed by #SeasonedDrinkMe 

Make Me: Pimp my porridge

24 October 2017

As the days get darker and the winter draws in, hot porridge in the morning is pretty much a necessity but let’s be honest it’s not really that exciting.

Well, that’s about to change.

Just log in to Instagram and take a look at the great ideas that people have come up with to make this ordinary breakfast something that’ll get your heart racing!

Here’s a few we love: 

From Liz BrutnallJumbo oats and grated courgette topped with coconut almond butter, berries and homemade granola.

Eat Me: The Ivy

22 September 2017

The expansion of a classic!

The Ivy has gone east and can now be found in the City and at Tower Bridge! This iconic restaurant, celebrating its hundredth year in 2017, has had the highs of being the place ‘to be seen’ and periods where newer restaurants and cuisines have lured people away, but not for long! There is something about a classic that we just can’t quite resist!

Pick Me: Galaxy Ice Cream

22 September 2017

Galaxy ice cream (no, not the branded one) has been a trend for a while but the latest big thing to hit Instagram is Galaxy Ice Cream with a twist.

The latest twist on this trend was started by a 16 year old vegan food blogger known as Naturally Jo. All her food is vegan and looks fantastic, making it an ideal bit of foodie content for your Insta feeds.

Jo’s take on Galaxy Ice Cream is: coconut milk, coconut nectar, butterfly pea tea and blueberry juice, which sounds delicious!

What would your twist be? We’d love to know! Send us your suggestions, pictures and videos to our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages with #SeasonedPickMe

And why not give Naturally Jo a follow? Her Instagram feed has over £279K followers and is full of colourful vegan treats!
