    strydesc11 The Great British Bake Off is back, and with it brings new baking challenges, recipes and ingredients. Every year, we find ourselves inspired by the variety of breads, cakes and desserts created by the team of GBBO bakers. They push culinary boundaries to produce the most eye-catching and flavoursome bakes, and as we witness their successes and mistakes, are motivated to head into the kitchen to mix up our own creations.

    The first week of GBBO is ‘Cake Week’, so we can expect to see everything from your classic Victoria sponge to chocolate filled and fruit layered cakes. In order to start recreating the featured recipes, and take the opportunity to develop our bakes, we’ve devised a checklist to make sure that you have everything that you need to bake with ease and style:

    Mixing/Serving Bowls – choose a bowl in a stunning hue to combine your ingredients.

    Dessert Bowl – use this versatile bowl for holding ingredients, and serving and eating.

    From Whisks to Wooden Spoons - your utensils are key.

    Springform Cake Tins – these are ideal for ensuring a perfect bake. The spring feature will quickly and easily release cakes, preventing any splitting.

    Cupcake Tins – split your mixture evenly in these cupcake tins to create small and delicious cakes and muffins.

    Baking Sheets – great for baking scones, cookies and eclairs on.

    Loaf Tins – bake up your favourite banana bread or fruit loaf in these tins.

    Platters – display your sweet treats, and create a table centrepiece with our handcrafted range of food platters.

    Cake Stands – arrange your fresh cakes on an elegantly patterned cake stand, and enjoy in the style of afternoon tea.

    strydesc11 Our guest nutritionist, Eva Humphries of the wellness blog Wholefood Warrior, is back with another nourishing recipe:

    Chicken is a great lean source of protein that’ll keep you perfectly full without compromising your waistline. If, however, your experience of cooking chicken breast has been dominated by creating a dry, tasteless piece of meat then this fool proof recipe is for you.

    By ‘flattening’ the chicken breasts, the required cooking time is reduced and the meat is tenderised. The end results is a succulent and supremely healthy dish, especially if you employ a good, solid cast iron griddle pan for the job.

    Of course, eating chicken alone wouldn’t be enough to keep you healthy. Vegetables are the main source of vitamins and minerals required for optimum health. Putting them in a slaw ensures that those all-important veggies retain most of their nutrient content.

    For this colourful slaw, red cabbage and carrots were used. They add a welcome crunch and sweetness to the chicken but above all, they fill your plate with the kind of nutritious stuff that’ll have you glowing for the rest of the day!

    In fact, research indicates that the consumption of foods naturally high in carotenoids can make you appear more tanned, even without sunbathing. Carotenoids are yellow, orange and red pigments present in carrots, red cabbage, pumpkin and leafy green vegetables. If a vegetable tan isn’t your thing then carotenoids are also highly beneficial for eye, lung and cardiovascular health. Whatever your motivation, this recipe will do you some good.

    Ingredients for 2:

    2 x Organic or free range chicken breasts

    1 Tablespoon of rapeseed oil

    1/4 Red cabbage, thinly sliced

    1 Medium carrot, grated

    2 Teaspoons of peanut butter

    1 Teaspoon of tamari or soy sauce

    1 Teaspoon of honey or maple syrup

    Juice of half a lime.

    Method:

    - To flatten the chicken, put a single chicken breast between two sheets of cling film and bash with a rolling pin until it is 1/2 inch thick. Repeat with the second chicken breast

    - Brush the chicken breasts with the rapeseed oil

    - Heat a griddle pan on a high heat and cook the chicken breasts for 3 minutes on each side. Check that the chicken is fully cooked by cutting one in half

    - Allow the chicken to rest whilst you make the satay slaw

    - Put the thinly sliced cabbage and grated carrot in a large bowl

    - In a small bowl or mug, mix the peanut butter, tamari, honey and juice of half a lime with a tablespoon of water. Stir until well combined

    - Pour the satay sauce over the cabbage/carrot mix and stir until well coated

    - Serve the slaw and chicken with some salad and new potatoes.

    strydesc11 For Afternoon Tea Week, we wanted to create the perfect sultana scone to be accompanied by raspberry jam and clotted cream.

    Arranged on our bold Halo tableware collection, the scones look rich, indulgent and eye-catching. A simple recipe which can make 7-10 scones, they will take around 40 minutes to prepare and bake. These scones are delicious served both warm and cold.

    Ingredients:

    250g Self-raising flour (for a gluten-free option, use gluten-free self-raising flour)

    1 Tsp baking powder (can be gluten-free)

    50g Butter

    50g Caster sugar

    - Starting with the flour and baking powder, sift them in a mixing bowl

    - Next, add in the butter and use your fingers to combine the mixture to a consistency of fine breadcrumbs

    - Stir in the sugar

    - Add in the sultanas and mix well

    - Line a baking tray with butter

    - Depending on the size of the scones that you would like to make, use a spoon or ice-cream scoop to create mounds of the mixture on the baking tray

    - Finish with a brush of egg over the top of each scone

    - Bake the scones for 15-20 minutes until they turn a light-golden colour

    - When ready, remove the scones from the oven and place onto a wire rack to cool

    - Finally, serve up with a generous portion of jam and cream.

    1 Medium egg

    1 Beaten egg to glaze

    strydesc11 Next week brings Afternoon Tea Week, a week dedicated to this classic English tradition, first introduced in the early 19th century. During this time, only two meals were served a day, notably breakfast and dinner. It was a growing trend for dinner to be held later on in the evening with the use of many candles to light the room. Due to the length of time between breakfast and dinner and the hour of dinner becoming later, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, Anna Russell, started to have tea and light refreshments during the afternoon, in her private boudoir.

    Anna soon started to invite her friends over to enjoy this light afternoon break in her rooms at Woburn Abbey. ‘Afternoon Tea’ then became a tradition amongst the upper classes, with social hostesses bringing it into their drawing rooms to serve to family and friends.

    Today, afternoon tea is an enticing combination of tea, finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes. In order to serve up the most beautiful afternoon tea, you will need a tea set including a teapot, cups and saucers, a jug and sugar bowl. Our Natural Canvas collection is perfect for creating a stylish afternoon tea, with its neutral, warm hue and subtle ‘roulette’ detailing. The Natural Canvas Tea Set is a great starter set that will ensure your afternoon tea looks as great as it tastes. For coffee advocates, the Natural Canvas Cafetiere promises to update your table setting, and it can also be positioned as a jug with the plunger taken out.

    For an understated metallic look, our Monsoon by Denby ranges make a beautiful addition when serving tea and cake. Our Lucille Gold pattern is a 50's inspired range, featuring a lace gold design. The eye-catching Cake Stand and shapely Teapot in this collection are ideal for adding a hint of glimmer into your afternoon tea. The Monsoon by Denby Filigree Silver range is an alternative set, showcasing a fine filigree pattern in a silvery shade. The Filigree Silver Pastry Plates are a great size for enjoying small sandwiches and desserts, whilst the Teacups are beautifully elegant.

    strydesc11 Opened at the end of last year, The Lilypad Café is a café cross restaurant in the centre of Chesterfield in Derbyshire. Run by locals Emi Chapman and Iain Woodhead, The Lilypad exemplifies delicious food and fresh ingredients in a contemporary environment that gives you a taste of the latest movements in food and drink.

    Inspired by their time spent working abroad in Australia, Emi and Iain always dreamed of having their own restaurant. With Emi’s experienced background in hospitality, and Iain’s natural skill and passion stemming from years spent as a Chef in various establishments, The Lilypad is able to excel in both service and food.

    The interiors of The Lilypad are modern, fresh and inviting, dominated by shades of pistachio green and natural cream. Emi highlighted the importance of keeping the space open, and ensuring that there is enough room between each table, as well as providing plenty of leeway for pushchairs. This gives the café a relaxed and comfortable feel, and enables visitors to enjoy their own allocated space. The inclusion of a mirror, pared-back lightbulbs and hints of greenery add to the relaxed and modern appeal of the space, whilst the blackboards take centre-stage positioned at the front. Updated on a daily basis, the blackboards show the range of drinks available, including speciality coffees and any daily specials.

    With the impact and increased interest in coffee recently, The Lilypad invested time in sourcing the best supplier of beans. After extensive research Emi and Iain chose Arden Coffee, a local supplier boasting numerous blends and single estate filter coffees. On ordering a coffee, The Lilypad team use a filter to extract the coffee flavours into a beaker for you. The tea available is also approached with the same care and expertise; the tea is brewed and is only served when the flavours are at an optimum level.

    The menu is a refreshing mix of enticing dishes including homemade bircher muesli, eggs benedict, steak sandwiches, smashed avocado on sourdough toast and home cured salmon. A labour of love, the menu takes influence from Emi and Iain’s time spent in Australia and the various food trends that they experienced whilst they were there. Notably, the rise of the avocado, gluten-free options and the advancement of coffee. The presentation of each dish is also an area of importance at The Lilypad; the ‘pour-over’ coffee is served on a slate board, with a mug and beaker and local favourite ‘eggs and soldiers’, is showcased on a slate board with the eggs served in an egg box, alongside neat portions of sherry glazed black pudding, Parma ham and thyme sourdough. There is attention to detail within every dish, and the flavours are enhanced by the use of a coal fire oven.

    The Lilypad has also introduced homemade doughnuts with decorative syringes containing sweet sauces and Australian inspired ‘freak shakes’ made up of aerated cream, sauce, marshmallows, popcorn, oreos, dark and white chocolate, depending on the flavour. Since launched, both of these sweet treats have created a buzz on social media leading to them selling out within hours. Only available during selected months, Iain works late into the evening to keep up with the demand for these distinctive desserts, using the finest ingredients available.

    Open from Monday to Friday 8:30-4:00pm, Saturday 9:00-4:30pm and Sunday 9:00-3:30pm, The Lilypad is also open in the evening on the first Friday of every month serving tapas style food. With a cocktail menu as well as a range of fine wine and beer, The Lilypad promises an evening of wholesome food and quality drink. For more information on The Lilypad Cafe, visit their site here.

    The interiors of The Lilypad are modern, fresh and inviting, dominated by shades of pistachio green and natural cream. Emi highlighted the importance of keeping the space open, and ensuring that there is enough room between each table, as well as providing plenty of leeway for pushchairs. This gives the café a relaxed and comfortable feel, and enables visitors to enjoy their own allocated space. The inclusion of a mirror, pared-back lightbulbs and hints of greenery add to the relaxed and modern appeal of the space, whilst the blackboards take centre-stage positioned at the front. Updated on a daily basis, the blackboards show the range of drinks available, including speciality coffees and any daily specials.

    With the impact and increased interest in coffee recently, The Lilypad invested time in sourcing the best supplier of beans. After extensive research Emi and Iain chose Arden Coffee, a local supplier boasting numerous blends and single estate filter coffees. On ordering a coffee, The Lilypad team use a filter to extract the coffee flavours into a beaker for you. The tea available is also approached with the same care and expertise; the tea is brewed and is only served when the flavours are at an optimum level.

    The menu is a refreshing mix of enticing dishes including homemade bircher muesli, eggs benedict, steak sandwiches, smashed avocado on sourdough toast and home cured salmon. A labour of love, the menu takes influence from Emi and Iain’s time spent in Australia and the various food trends that they experienced whilst they were there. Notably, the rise of the avocado, gluten-free options and the advancement of coffee. The presentation of each dish is also an area of importance at The Lilypad; the ‘pour-over’ coffee is served on a slate board, with a mug and beaker and local favourite ‘eggs and soldiers’, is showcased on a slate board with the eggs served in an egg box, alongside neat portions of sherry glazed black pudding, Parma ham and thyme sourdough. There is attention to detail within every dish, and the flavours are enhanced by the use of a coal fire oven.

    The Lilypad has also introduced homemade doughnuts with decorative syringes containing sweet sauces and Australian inspired ‘freak shakes’ made up of aerated cream, sauce, marshmallows, popcorn, oreos, dark and white chocolate, depending on the flavour. Since launched, both of these sweet treats have created a buzz on social media leading to them selling out within hours. Only available during selected months, Iain works late into the evening to keep up with the demand for these distinctive desserts, using the finest ingredients available.

    Open from Monday to Friday 8:30-4:00pm, Saturday 9:00-4:30pm and Sunday 9:00-3:30pm, The Lilypad is also open in the evening on the first Friday of every month serving tapas style food. With a cocktail menu as well as a range of fine wine and beer, The Lilypad promises an evening of wholesome food and quality drink. For more information on The Lilypad Cafe, visit their site here.
