Review: Kent Veg Box

Review of Kent Veg Box scheme

Who’s behind the Kent Veg Box Scheme and what is it? It’s a small, established veg box company that has recently expanded to delivery to all of London as well as their home county of Kent.

Review: Giovanni Rana pasta

Giovanni Rana pasta review

I’ve been sent a selection of filled pastas from Giovanni Rana, a food company set up by a family of expert bakers and pasta makers in the 1960s in Verona, Italy.

Bramble jelly

Bramble jelly on feedingboys.co.uk

Our good friends have just moved to a new place with a truly magical garden, filled with apple trees and blackberry bushes. The children had a smashing Enid Blytonesque time running around the garden, climbing trees, duelling with sticks and picking the fruit that went into this beautiful clear jam.
