  1. Winter Warmers - Great British Recipes

  2. When you think about your favourite food, the likelihood is that your mind travels back to a traditional recipe that your mum used to make for you after long day at school. The smell of a simple beef stew bubbling away as you excitedly kick your shoes off at the door at the end of an arduous, chilly day is familiar and welcome to many of us. The aroma of a homemade soup waiting for you at the dinner table is a kind of love that is unlikely to be replicated. As we grow older, some of these childhood favourites stay with us, including some that were available from the school cafeteria. Knowing how to throw together a hearty, home cooked meal doesn’t have to be tough- getting a few basic recipes down can be the difference between a meal like your mum used to make and a soggy takeaway being delivered to your door out of desperation on a grey, rainy night. We’ve put together a few recipes that are cheap, easy to make, and ready to welcome you through the door with open arms after a commute home from work during the cold snap. Better still, you don’t need any fancy and expensive gadgets to make them!

  3. Stew The best part about these types of dishes is that you could quite literally throw a few bits in there that are just knocking about in the fridge. Much more than just a meat and veg combination, this dish really can be whatever you wish to make it! We personally love it with thick, rich gravy that has absorbed whatever herbs and spices we have on hand.

  4. Stew Recipe Ingredients: • 900g stewing steak • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil • 4 crumbled beef stock cubes • 1L water • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary • 1 teaspoon dried parsley • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper • 3 large potatoes • 4 carrots • 1 onion • 2 teaspoons cornflour • 2 teaspoons cold water Method: • Cook the beef in oil over medium heat until brown • Dissolve stock cubes in water and pour into the pan • Stir in rosemary, parsley and pepper, simmer over reduced heat for 1 hour • Stir in the potatoes, carrots and onions • Dissolve cornflour in water and stir into the stew • Cover and simmer for 1 hour

  5. Toad in the Hole Few things are more comforting than a baked banger with a crispy skin! Extra points for a homemade Yorkshire pudding; they’re surprisingly easy to make at home with due care and patience not to open the oven before they’re quite done. While it may drag up images of a sad lunchtime option presented in a school cafeteria, when done properly it maintains just the right amount of stodge and nostalgia to keep you warm on a cold night.

  6. Toad in the Hole Recipe Ingredients: • 100g plain flour • ½ tsp English mustard powder • 1 egg • 300ml milk • 3 thyme sprigs • 8 sausages • 2 tbsp sunflower oil • 2 onions • 1 tsp soft brown sugar • 500ml beef stock Method: • Heat the oven to 220c, tip flour into the large mixing bowl and stir in the mustard powder with salt • Make a well in the centre and pour the egg and milk into it. Whilst stirring, gradually add the flour • Add more milk if needed until all the milk and flour is mixed • Drop your sausages into a 20 x 30cm roasting tin. Add 1 tbsp of oil and roast in the oven for 15 minutes • Once cooked - pour in the batter • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the batter is cooked • Make your gravy and any other added extras!

  7. Cheese Toastie Lashings of melted cheese between thick slices of bread are a simple treat revered both adults and children alike! The type of cheese used is open to the person about to devour it, as is the decision to add or not to add any meaty or saucy additions. It’s more continental counterpart, the Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame is a great alternative when you feel like shaking things up a little! Ingredients: • 25g butter • 100g grated cheddar cheese Method: • Butter the bread and arrange the cheese over half of the slices, buttered side down • Preheat a frying pan • Cook the sandwiches for 2 mins on each side until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted Don’t be afraid to add some ham or sauce too!

  8. Jacket Potatoes The ultimate comfort food. A salty, crispy skin with a fluffy, white filling underneath lashings of butter, cheese and piping hot baked beans feel like a warm hug on a cold night, although generally the toppings are interchangeable. The hardest part is choosing! While floury varieties such as King Edward and Maris Pieper are traditional, a great (and health conscious!) alternative is the sweet potato which has boomed in popularity in the past few years. Ingredients: • 4 large baking potatoes • 2 tsp olive oil • 200ml soured cream • Any fillings you would like Method: • Heat your oven to 220c/200c • Rub a little oil over each potato and put in the oven for 20 minutes • Turn the oven down to 190c/170c and bake for 45 minutes until the skin is crisp and the flesh is soft • Cut a cross on top of the potato • Add a dollop of soured cream and your favourite topping!

  9. Soup Whether a tin of Heinz hiding at the back of the cupboard, or a homemade effort, there’s no denying that a bowlful of soup is a sight for sore eyes when it starts getting a little chillier outside. Even better, you can cram in a few of your five a day if you’re starting from scratch! With so many flavour options available online, you can get really creative with combinations using whatever you have to hand. Spicy Pumpkin Soup Recipe Ingredients: • 1 tbsp unsalted butter • 1 ½ cups of chopped yellow onions • 2 cloves garlic • 1 ½ teaspoons yellow curry powder • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin • ½ teaspoon ground coriander • Small pinch of cinnamon • 1 teaspoon of salt • 4 cups of low sodium chicken stock • 2 bay leaves • 2 cans 100% pumpkin puree • 1 cup of water • 3 tbsp heavy whipped cream • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  10. Spicy Pumpkin Soup Recipe Method: • Melt the butter over medium heat and add the onions and saute until softened • Add the minced garlic, ginger, curry powder, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and salt – cook for 3 mins • Add stock, bay leaves and pumpkin puree, stir to combine. Add water if the soup is too thick • Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes • Stir in the cream and add black pepper to adjust the taste to suit you

  11. Hot Toddy A traditional boozy recipe that is occasionally touted as a cold remedy, which is a great alternative for when your average cuppa won’t quite take the edge off. This cocktail of sorts is believed to have been created in Scotland in the 1700s as a more female-friendly option for women who may have struggled with the harsh, peaty flavours of Scotland’s arguably most famous export- Scotch whisky. A sweeter alternative still is to use bourbon instead, mixed in with the usual suspects of honey, lemon and hot water.

  12. Hot Toddy Recipe Ingredients: • 1 teaspoon of honey • 2 fluid ounces of boiling water • 1 ½ fluid ounces of whiskey • 3 whole cloves • 1 cinnamon stick • 1 slice of lemon • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg Method: • Pour the honey, boiling water and whiskey into a mug • Spice it with the cloves, cinnamon and lemon • Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes • Sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg before serving!

  13. Mulled Wine Usually the reserve of the unashamedly British tradition of Christmas markets, your favourite winter tipple is simple enough to make at home with the right ingredients! Many supermarkets now stock their own variations of mulled wine, ready to be gently heated at home. During this process of warming the wine through, we recommend throwing a few more spices and wedges of orange to personal taste.

  14. Mulled Wine Recipe Ingredients: • 1 ½ cups of boiling water • ½ cup of white sugar • ¼ lemon • 8 whole cloves • 1 cinnamon stick • 1 bottle of claret wine • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg Method: • Stir the water and sugar together in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves • Add the lemon, cloves and cinnamon stick; bring to a boil and cook for around 10 minutes • Strain and return water mixture to the saucepan • Discard the lemon, cloves and cinnamon stick • Stir claret wine into water mixture and heat until hot • Let it cool down and serve flecked with nutmeg
