Cook with Neff

With the great British Bake off currently on air, there seems to be a baking frenzy around. Everyone is talking about cakes and bakes, the star baker of the week, the flop of the week and also all the equipment and ingredients that the bakers are using.


Recently I was invited to a baking session at the Neff headquarters in Milton Keynes organised by Currys to try out their slide and hide ovens that are featured on the bake off. These ovens are pretty cool with all sorts of amazing features as doors that slide and hide. touch controls that  making setting your oven temperature a breeze and even having self cleaning and ovens that have a wonderful steaming drawer/ cavity  that regulates the oven temperature to give perfect baking.The ovens were simply amazing and I most certainly want one on my christmas wishlist.


There were some 20 bloggers that were present and we had a wonderful time all working together in small groups creating some awesome dishes  for our lunch.


We cooked  flatbreads, wild boar patties, savory tartlets, quiche lorraine, couscous and green salads, roasted vegetable tarts, pull and share breads and delicious desserts.


The Neff slide and hide ovens made the baking so easy with their simple programmable touch button features. We soon rustled up some desserts to finish off our elaborate lunch.


I would like to thank Currys and Neff for inviting me to their showrooms to see their slide and hide ovens and for the amazing hospitality they provided. To read  more about our exciting day please check out the "The great blogger bake off with Neff"

Giveaway £40.00 voucher from Serenata Flowers



We have all been in a situation where we need to buy a gift but we are unsure what the recipient would like. I always find that flowers and chocolates in these situations are fail safe and most people will love to receive a bouquet of flowers or chocolates to enjoy. There are many companies that send flowers, one such company that is a favorite of mine is Serenataflowers. They are an online company that have a vast selection of chocolate and drinks hampers and beautiful flower bouquets and flower baskets to suit all tastes and budgets. Their prices start from as little as £20.00.


I recently received a beautiful bunch of roses and a chocolate hamper from them. The flowers and hamper were very well packaged and survived the postal journey incredibly well.The roses lasted a good 8 days before wilting and the chocolates selection in the hamper was varied and they were all were really delicious. Receiving treats in the post is really special and it made me feel really happy. 

I was sent a chocolate hamper and flowers for a review purpose, all opinions in this post are honest and unbiased.


Serenata Flowers have been very kind and have offered to give a £ 40.00 voucher to one citrusspice reader to spend on line so that they too can have the pleasure to enjoy chocolates or flowers of their choice like I did.
