Your Flavourful Food Stories Recipe Book
Marking half a century of supplying delicious rice, we’ve released ‘Your Flavourful Food Stories’, a book filled with recipes from all the people who helped make the brand the success it is today: the chefs who won’t serve anything else, foodies known for being on top of the latest trends and home cooks who serve up dishes with love.
The book continues our partnership with The Felix Project, London’s leading food redistribution charity, which rescues good quality surplus food and delivers it to charities and schools for people in need. All the proceeds from the sales of this book will go directly towards helping get good food to people in need this Christmas and beyond.Click here to purchase your copy
Celebrating Your Wonderful, Flavour Food Stories
Nostalgic memories of family meal-times and falling in love with food. From Mum’s oh so creamy rice pudding after school to trying scratch cooking for the first time and surprising yourself. It’s the people and the stories behind the meals that make it all so special. Thank you for your commitment and wonderful, flavourful stories. Here are some of our favourites that you’ve shared with us…
My First Dinner Party Curry
“I remember my first dinner party at my flat. Having never cooked for others before, I nervously attempted a Thai green curry with some Tilda Lime & Coriander Basmati Steamed Rice that I managed to pass off as my own! It was a fab night.”
Mum’s Creamy Rice Pudding
“When we were kids, Mum would make rice pudding from scratch. We’d run home from school at lunchtime and tuck into a steaming bowl of creamy rice pudding. Even now, the smell of rice pudding reminds me of this time.”
A Holiday Dinner to Remember
“I’ll never forget my holiday to Egypt. The hotel’s chef cooked the most delicious plate of fried fish with fluffy rice. Food for me is what makes a holiday, experiencing different cultures and flavours. It was the best dinner I’ve ever had abroad!”
Celebrating The No.1 Cooks In Your Life
Inspiration comes in all manner of forms but often the best form is from a loved one. Here’s your chance to thank the no.1 cook in your life!
Ailsa Patton says…
“Me! My hubby had a huge brain stem stroke 2 years ago and I was told he’d be tube fed forever. Well, I love cooking and I’m very creative and persistent!! Now, he manages to enjoy soft food including my heavenly salmon or cod curry and rice, fish tagine and vegetable chilli – he’s an inspiration and I love him.”
Sana Salman says…
“My mom is the best cook in the world. She has magic hands that work miracles with food. I am a mother of three and strive to be just like her.”
