Welcome from Guy Warner
There’s a chill in the air that tells you it’s time to draw the curtains, light the fire and tuck into a great big bowl of comfort food. That could be why we celebrate two of our nation’s favourite comfort foods this month, curry and sausages!
As if you needed an excuse to indulge in your favourite takeaway food, we’ll be celebrating National Curry Week from 7th-13th October. You may enjoy a weekly curry from the takeaway but why not have a go at making your own? It’s definitely the right time of year to do it with lots of home-grown root vegetables around to throw in the mix and it really isn’t as difficult as it seems. Or go half way and add a good quality sauce to fresh ingredients.
The ever-popular sausage is celebrated during UK Sausage Week (28th October-3rd November). If bangers and mash or hot dogs are your go-to meals, try thinking a bit more laterally – sausage pasta, toad in the hole or an easy sausage one pot roast are all great weekday meals and a good way of upping the nutrient quantity – check out this month’s Taste Club for some easy sausage recipes.
The other two big celebrations that we’re gearing up for in store are Halloween on 31st October, so come and get your pumpkin before they’re gone and Bonfire Night on the 5th November!
