East Lothian - it's beauty and it's awesome producers!

We are so lucky to live in the beautiful county of East Lothian.  The beaches are incredible and the favorite part of my day is taking my dog, Pixie, out for a walk.  This always clears my head and allows me just to 'be' and to be grateful for all that we have and where we live! For a small county, it's quite incredible what is produced here and you can use other amazing East Lothian produce along side our recipes.

Then treat...

Jazzing up Vegetarian and Vegan Cooking with Spice Pots

I've never been a vegetarian, but I was a very fussy child and ate mostly raw vegetables, lots of salad and a bit of roast chicken on a Sunday at a push! I was brought up on the traditional 'meat and 2 veg' and my parents had the most amazing vegetable and herb garden, so we were lucky enough to have delicious, sometimes unusual and incredibly fresh vegetables. In India, vegetarian food is the norm and I'm currently loving making filling, warming vegetarian curries that my whole family are enjoying too!  We have a huge range of vegan and vegetarian recipes to use with Spice Pots.  Many are curries, but we also have recipes for soups, salads and basic sauces.  We...
