In need of some Halloween nibbles for tonight? This pumpkin houmous is a great twist on the traditional recipe. It’s a little sweeter than normal and tastes fantastic warmed up as well as cold. If you dare to try something a little different, read on for our recipe and watch the video of how it’s made!
This week we’re running a competition to give away tickets to Foodies Festival! This food-centric event is taking place on the 18th – 20th November, and we have an amazing 5 pairs of tickets to hand out. We will be there too and can’t wait to bring 10 of you along with us!
This week’s recipe heralds something we’ve been waiting for with bated breath – the return to pumpkin season! We absolutely loved cooking all of our pumpkin recipes last year and this one couldn’t come quickly enough.
We decided to start out with a traditional winter warmer recipe, given a little twist to bring in that pumpkin flavour. We made it vegetarian too of course! This veggie pumpkin chili is fun to make and so easy, and it tastes great. I don’t like my chili to be watery at all so this has quite a thick texture – if you prefer it a bit thinner, you can add water or vegetable stock.
This week it’s a guest post of sorts – my parents went to visit The Sherlock Holmes, Quimpere, France, and brought back photos as well as their own views on the food. Welcome to a new (and possibly to be continued) segment – based on an interview with my own mother, it’s V’s Verdict!
You may have noticed a certain dearth of Vine posts recently – what with my birthday and then J’s birthday over the past couple of weeks, we took a little break from filming! We’re right back into it now however, with these fake Twix bars. They’re supposed to be a healthy twist, although of course they aren’t as healthy as you could possibly go.
This week’s burger is a bit unusual – it comes from an Indian restaurant! As both I and J had our birthdays recently, my parents took us both out for a meal as a treat. We were up in the area anyway, so head for Rajasthan in Bexleyheath, which had a lot of great reviews and seemed like a good shout.
