Cooking tips

  • Have your eyes ever teared or stung when chopping onions? A great tip to help to clear your eyes, is to run the back of both your wrists under cold running water for a minute! Try it next time you chop onions to see how it helps!
  • To check if your fairy cakes are cooked take a toothpick, cocktail stick, or sharp knife and poke through the center of the cake. If the instrument comes out clean your cakes are ready! If not, try again in a minute or two.
  • If using dry fruit, soak them in warm water for a few hours before adding them to your recipe. This will rehydrate them and bring out their flavours!
