Fancy having a Daal curry this lunch? There's a musical treat if
On the inside of the new Daal veg pots there's a record player
with a list of songs, all of which are related to food. So tune in,
pop your veg pot in the microwave and have a sing-a-long whilst you
Or should we say start, as for our first
official bit of news for 2012, we are thrilled to announce that our
new juice blends are now in the shops.
You can choose from our delicious apple and raspberry recipe or
totally tasty tropical (sorry), depending on whether you need to be
transported to a dappled orchard or a desert island.
You can find them in ASDA right now and in other shops very soon
(we'll keep you posted as to where and when).
Given that at least one person you know will be on some sort of
miserable cabbage maple syrup nothing beginning with C diet right
now, why not cheer them up with a bit of sunshine in a carafe?
Or better still, give their eyes and ears a treat courtesy of a
shady orange grove and the dulcet tones of Captain Jean Luc Picard.
Or even better still, if you fancy winning yourself a case of
our new blends, just tell us your top 3 most ridiculous New Year's
resolutions below and the 10 that make us laugh the most will each
win a case of our new juice.
We'll pick the winners on Friday 20th January, so
get your entries in.
This competition is now closed. Thanks
to everyone who entered. Congratulations to Katie B, Kieran W,
Karen G, Thom B, Yasna, Andi G, Bex, Kerri W, Samantha S and Steven

We're making a new TV advert. The clever ones among you will be

fruit from a rickety bit of scaffolding" technique, we are hoping
to make something beautiful, entertaining and innocent in its
Pete ("the best in the business") is looking after the fruit. He
picks it, preens it and sometimes talks to it.
Helen is the director. She's firm but fair, and is guiding us
towards sunlit uplands.
And the fruit just keeps rolling. Down chutes, from wires and
pretty much every other way you can imagine that fruit could be
propelled. We will stop at nothing until we have made fruit do
every trick in the book.
The excellent Anna Jones (who created the recipes for our new
family recipe book, Hungry?) came along with me to Jamie Oliver’s
Feastival on Clapham Common last weekend to talk about
the book, make some recipes with kids and dust off the old
Blendavenda smoothie bike.
Here we are before the carnage ensued
Fruit prepped, ingredients laid out and head mikes donned, we
got kids making the old bread and squashed tomato salad and fruit
mess recipes from the book and then followed it with a bun fight to
see who got to pedal the smoothie bike first
Though the fighting was mainly amongst all the mums and dads
trying to have a go.
Thanks to everyone who came along, squashed, pedalled and ate
Hopefully we'll be going along to more things like this over the
summer and we'll be sure to give you plenty of warning the next
time we do
