A Taste Of African Luxury With Miss Nang’s Nutty Snack Treats

I received a delightfully luxurious peanut gift from Miss Nang recently, a start up food business that offers a range of nuts, seeds and snack treats in lovely, luxury gift packs. These packs are perfect as wedding favours, corporate gifts or presents.

Miss Nang

The peanuts that I was sent are lighted coats with sugar and salt and the sweet and savoury flavour worked really well with the nuts. The peanuts themselves are of great quality, crunchy and flavoursome and whilst they were moreish they were not too sweet which is really good as a sugar overload would have spoiled the snack in my opinion. This is such a great snack idea and I really loved the pretty packaging which added a touch of luxury to my eating experience.

Celebrate Thanksgiving Dinner And Drinks In Style In London

Thanksgiving is a traditional American public holiday which originally celebrated the arrival of the first non-native  American settlers. Whilst we’re not the biggest fan of the historical connotations  the modern day premise of Thanksgiving is a celebration of family and friendship with food at Thanksgiving Dinner and we can definitely get behind that. Thanksgiving is celebrate on the 4th Thursday of every November and is now making some global transitions with people across the world getting involved and finding reasons to give thanks on that day too!

Here are a couple of places you can celebrate Thanksgiving in London!

CityUnscripted

According to the cool folks at CityUnscripted, which specialises in hosting authentic tours of London, The Riding House Cafe will be the closest you’ll get to a really authentic thanksgiving meal in London. Their thanksgiving feast will be served family style, so you can dig in and help yourself to extra maple-buttered sweet potatoes or sausage and cornbread stuffing and the gravy and so much more. They’ve got all the classics covered using only the best quality produce, from roasted Norfolk Bronze turkey to pumpkin brûlée pie, but expect a couple of twists that will elevate your thanksgiving meal into something really special, how does truffled mac and cheese sound?

Ny-Lon Lounge Bar

Stop in at NY-LON this Thanksgiving with friends and celebrate with The Ny-Lon Cranberry Holiday cocktail Scarlet Sparkle. They’ve mixed cranberry liqueur with Pierre Ferrand Orange Curacao and topped it off with a healthy pour of prosecco for the essential fizz that makes the libation properly punchy. If you want to lessen the tipple quotient, use lemonade instead for added bubble. Their secret when making the delicious Thanksgiving cocktails at NY-LON is the garnish. The Scarlet Sparkle is topped with fresh red currants sprinkled with a little icing sugar for that extra sweet finish.

Irish company Mr Crumb has launched its fresh traditional stuffing range in ASDA and Sainsbury’s in time for the festive season. The ready-to-cook stuffings are a great time saver for busy cooks, as they can be put straight in the oven for 12 minutes which creates that perfect stuffing with a crispy top. The onions are sautéed in Irish butter, before being mixed with fresh breadcrumbs from a local bakery, the herbs, spices and other ingredients.  Mr Crumb stuffing is suitable for Vegetarians and comes in two varieties Fresh “Apple & Apricot” and “Sage and Onion” and can be found in the fresh chicken chiller section alongside the Yorkshire Puds.

If you’re looking for a unique way to cook your bird along with either of these delicious stuffings why not try  cooking it on the barbecue! Not only does this free up the oven for your other accompaniments but according to Weber BBQs grilling in the cooler weather makes the meat even more succulent and flavoursome. Check out their recipe here and try something new this Christmas! Get Stuffed and get barbecuing!
