Round Up of Foodie Goodies #6 May-June 2015

It has been another bumper couple of months here at Food Glorious Food of reviewing, hosting giveaways, but mainly I've been cooking and launching my Youtube Channel where I hope to share many Jamaican and Caribbeaan inspired recipes. My Elvis Presley Pancakes were also featured in The Guardian a couple of weeks ago, which was brilliant. I have amassed a number of cookbooks which will feature on the blond in the next month or so. But here are some of the wonderful things which have passed through my kitchen and what I have been up to.

It is picnic season, loved by children and adults, there is nothing more comforting than bringing homemade food, to eat outdoors (ideally in a beautiful setting) and spending time with those that you love. The Picnic Cookbook by Laura Mason is a beautiful collection of recipes that broadened my perception of picnic food and is one which I'll be cooking from for some time. I thoroughly enjoyed writing my review post and preparing a number of dishes from this book.

Hungry Uncle BBQ Sauce
Hungry Uncle BBQ Sauces specialises (as you probably guess) in BBQ sauces. Hungry Uncle premium sauce in Bajan (Barbados) BBQ sauce, something that I have never tried before, but was a wonderful addition to my love of Caribbean sauces. I made oven baked Bajan BBQ chicken which I served with rice and peas. Simply divine.



Finnish product
The lovely people at Finnish asked me my ideas of my Ultimate Dinner Party, a tough one with so many ideas and people to invite, but after the Ultimate Dinner, comes the inevitable washing up. Finish have a range of dish washing tablets to make life a little easier, which my dishwasher was very grateful for.


Foodies Festival
Foodies Festival came to Birmingham. Yay. This was a fabulous day, although there were some areas which would benefit from improvement. On a positive, I was able to take my photo with the very talented and Saturday Kitchen regular, Glyn Purnell.

BBC Good Food Show Summer
Without a doubt the BEST food show in the UK, read how I got on and my backstage access. How fabulous.



Wicked Good Burgers by Andy Harts, Chris Hart and Andrea Pyenson.
I love a good burger, I really do. I have to many burger recipe cookbooks, but I truly believe you can never have too many. There is a comprehensive introduction to the very loveable burgers, from how to grind your meat, shaping your burgers to the different cooking methods.

  • Thats a Frappe: recipes to try include: Salted Caramel Frappe, Vanilla Frappe and Darkest Chocoalte Frappe.
I've made a couple of dishes, the double cheeseburger (the pictures does not do this dish any justice) and also the Vanilla Frappe, which was moerish, nom.
