Farmer's Kitchen is back for 2021!
With our partners Spinneys, we are going to help you wave goodbye to boring dinners, cluttered fridges, and lumpy leftovers!
We’re showing you how to make your meals more memorable! We’ll have chefs sharing their favourite recipes, some goodies to give away and experts armed with hacks to make life, that much simpler.
And of course, Spinneys isn’t just about good food, they also believe in a well-balanced lifestyle, so we’ll be exploring that too!
Tune in to Farmer’s Kitchen with Spinneys – every Thursday from 2 pm.
This Thursday, we’re cooking with stone fruits, learning the basics of composting, and making a Willy Wonka-inspired milkshake with the kids.
Cooking with stone fruits
Nectarines and peaches are a great healthy snack but on Farmer’s Kitchen, we’re making them the stars of the show. Tiffany Eslick, content director at Spinneys will share some recipes with Helen that you can easily make at home. She’ll also be telling us about a fruit you’ve probably never heard of – the pluot. A cross between a plum and an apricot, it’s versatile enough to be part of your salad, main course or drink. Tiffany has recently traveled to South Africa’s Ceres Valley to meet the producers of these fruits and she shares their story.
