With Australia Day just around the corner, it’s prime time to fire up the barbecue and cook up a storm.
Meat & fish
Not only is chicken a great source of protein, it’s also high in the mineral phosphorus which we need to keep our bones and teeth strong and healthy. It’s incredibly versatile, too: great with pasta, in stir-fries, soups or curries, or simply grilled with a lovely, seasonal salad.
Jamie and Jimmy focus on langoustines in their fight against food waste in Friday Night Feast. Scotland is famous for its langoustines with one-third of the world’s supply coming from Scottish shores alone. But, rather than guzzle them ourselves, a massive 70% are exported to France, Spain and beyond.
Jamie and Jimmy are carrying on the fight against food waste in their new Friday Night Feast TV series, this time by embracing the incredible UK produce that usually gets binned, or just outright ignored.
Only when Jamie decided to feature kid (young goat meat) in his latest series of Friday Night Feast did I realise I knew very little about the world’s most widely eaten meat.

There’s no reason why festive leftovers can’t be just as exciting as Christmas dinner itself – it’s not all about bubble and squeak and turkey and stuffing sandwiches!
Choosing a turkey for Christmas is a fine art – no one wants to end up with something that’s too big to fit into the oven or too small for your party!
In the UK, as many turkeys are eaten at Christmas as they are in the rest of the year put together. Often you’ll hear people say they don’t particularly like turkey meat, but this is probably because they haven’t tasted it at its best.
Hard to believe as it is, not everybody likes turkey, or needs such a large bird. So what are the alternatives?
