Did you know that 1.3 billion tons of food produced is lost or wasted every year worldwide? That amounts to a whopping third of all food for human consumption. The average UK household throws away £470 worth of food a year whole 4 million live in food poverty.
When I first saw these figures they really shocked me but I was more shocked when I realised that I was partly to blame. The unopened yoghurt tossed away before I went on holiday, the strange alien like vegetable that arrived in my organic box that I had no idea what to do with, those chocolates that were given to me as a gift when I was cutting out sugar, the food left over when I over catered for a party. Most of us regularly toss away edible food without a second thought.

There is real art in making truly delicious lunches, no longer are we a generation of simply ham, cheddar and branston pickle, instead we choose a more indulgent fromage and add trendy favourites such as avocado or rocket or decide to whip up a frittata or Quesadilla. During National Sandwich Week (8-14 May 2016), London Mums reveal their favourite recipe: HAM, SWISS CHEESE AND ARRABBIATA SAUCE PANINI.

This recipe for malted chocolate cake has been extracted from Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites by Mary Berry (BBC Books, hardback £25) and kindly donated to London Mums by BBC Books. This cake is the perfect family treat, and a real crowd-pleaser. The malt extract gives a lovely creaminess to the sponge, while the malted chocolate flavour is echoed in the cake’s topping.
