I love eating healthy fresh food but I never thought farm food would taste so different from supermarkets’ food. Recently I tried to get food from an online service that sends you fresh ingredients selected from the best local farms. I used www.kentvegbox.co.uk. They delivered fresh seasonal fruit, vegetables, meat and eggs to my door and then I chose recipes from my recipe book to cook with these ingredients. Try them for yourself! But remember that the F-factor (“Farm Factor”) is essential!
To make the most of the SPECIAL LONDON MUMS OFFER simply go to the page http://www.kentvegbox.com/pages/lm and claim your massive 75% discount off your first fruit and/or veg box. All you need to do is ORDER A BOX and use the code LM75 during check out.
From my first veg box, I have used potatoes, carrots and chicken to make a yummy Chicken and Butterbean Casserole with Mashed Potatoes.
With the extra carrots you can make a Vegan Carrot Cake.
With the lamb you can make a Speedy summer lamb tagine or Heston’s Roast leg of lamb.
Strawberries freshly picked from a farm have such an intense flavour that reminds me to those I used to pick in wild gardens or in the forest when I was a little girl. I asked my son to smell these strawberries to create memories which he will treasure for the future. He loved them. He wanted to eat them with snowy sugar on top but actually they were so tasteful without anything that sugar seemed to kill the intense natural flavour for me. But I allowed him to have his snowy strawberries just this one time. And they looked great for the cameras 🙂
