It's that time of the month. Payday is still more than a week away and money is tight (just me?). But, we all have to eat and therefore shop for food. I am a huge believer in bulk buying, batch cooking and freezing. I didn't do enough of this last year, and so this year I'm determined to be more organised. I am also very busy (lazy) and hate supermarket shopping. I am a recent convert to doing my food shop online. There are pros and cons, but for my budget shopping plan - certainly more pros. My husband challenged me to spend just £20 on our food shop for one week (and have some people over for dinner to make it harder) and with a little bit of organisation and preparation I did just that. Here is my version of the £20 food shop from Asda online . My only advice would be to add a few more veggies if cooking for kids - so add an extra couple of pounds, so you can buy some veggies... The shopping list 1.6kg ASDA Butcher's Selection Large Whole Chicken: £3.20 ASDA … [Read more...] about The £20 food shop that will feed your family for a week

By the time Christmas Day comes, many of them will be so sick of the sight of turkey and ham, or of the dishes that feature in the special menus that they have been cooking night after night for the whole month, that they'd probably eat just about anything other than the traditional feast. That's the reason why so many chefs are partial to a nice seafood platter, rib of beef or Beef Wellington come the big day. Hotel chefs, of course, will be working on Christmas Day, and will have to postpone their own celebrations until later. We spoke to three hard-working food workers about what they'll be cooking for their families this Christmas - or what they would be cooking if they weren't working. Cormac McCrearyExecutive Head Chef at Sheen Falls Lodge in Co Kerry When he worked at the Ritz in London, Cormac McCreary lost count of the number of Christmas dinners he cooked between the middle of November and the big day. By the time Christmas came, he couldn't face the sight of another turkey … [Read more...] about What are these three chefs cooking for their Christmas dinner?
