4 packaging trends

The last year has seen an increased amount of packaging come into our homes, but a lot of it is recyclable, compostable or reusable so don’t throw anything out without checking. There are also some new entries to the market for home use. 1 WOOL PACKING The use of natural wool to keep food cool is increasing. Companies like WoolCool promise that the wool they use is biodegradable and breaks down easily to release nutrients into the soil. It breaks up easily in seawater, too, and is recyclable. You can also make use of it at home – we use it for mulching containers in the garden and lining hanging baskets. 2 COMPOSTABLE FOOD CONTAINERS These plant-derived packages break down in an environmentally-friendly way in the right compost. Some need a hot composting environment,…

this is your goodfood

your letters I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the gluten-free baking feature by Becky Excell in your latest magazine – it’s so nice to see a lovely selection of gluten-free recipes. Becky’s recipes never fail, and it’s nice to see this being recognised. When I realised I was gluten intolerant, I completely fell out of love with baking and cooking etc, but then I found Becky, and now I’m constantly using her recipes. I can’t even tell the difference!

bourbon legends

BOURBON KNOW-HOW Drinks expert and bar owner Luke Comer explains all you need to know about bourbon 1 WHAT MAKES A BOURBON? Bourbon has to made in the US (95 per cent of bourbon is produced in the state of Kentucky), use at least 51 per cent corn (maize) in its mash bill (recipe), and must be aged in new, charred oak barrels. 2 HOW SHOULD IT BE SERVED? In my opinion, there is no right or wrong way. Great bourbons are versatile, and lend themselves to all ways of drinking. If you want to understand the liquid better, sampling it neat, or with just a splash of water, will give you the truest reflection. 3 WHY IS BOURBON GOOD FOR COCKTAILS? Bourbon can be mixed with a number of different flavours. There are some amazing innovations…
