  • Eat like an Italian

    20 July, 2015 Eat like an Italian

    If you’ve ever been on holiday to Italy, like us, you’ve probably eaten classic pizzas, pastas and risottos until you’re fit to burst. While sticking with what you know isn’t always a bad thing, delve a little deeper and you’ll find the true heart of the region; eating cotoletta in Milan, beans in Florence and artichokes in Campania will open up a whole new world of Italian cooking. We spoke to three Air B’n’B hosts about the food of their region, must-eats while you’re there, and asked about the best-kept secrets when it comes to eating out.

What to buy for Father's Day

06 June, 2017

Don’t get stuck in a rut with your Father’s Day gift, there’s plenty of inspiration here if you want to treat dad to something new with our guide.

Craft beer chocolates £5, Marks and Spencer

Any beer-loving dad will enjoy these chocolates. A mix of dark and milk beer-glass shaped chocs filled with London porter beer, Cornish pale ale and caramel beer flavoured centres. They taste as sweet as they look.

Nordic Ware kettle smoker £115.95, Divertimenti.co.uk 

This may have been a hot trend for a while, but it’s showing no signs of dying off, so why not treat your dad to his own home smoking kettle. Even better, this one works on the kitchen hob, so can be used all year round. With a retro-style domed top, and an adjustable smoke vent, this handy version from Nordic Ware flavours food while it cooks – without filling the house with smoke.

Morso frying pan £119 Morso.co.uk 

This is about as stylish as a frying pan gets. The new cookware range from the Danish cast iron wood-burning stove company will bring a touch of Scandi-cool to any dad in the kitchen. Cast-iron is ideal for cooking as it guarantees an even distribution of heat and can be used in the oven, on the hob, grill or even over fire or on a barbecue.

Thomas Dakin Gin £29, Waitrose 

Thomas Dakin is considered the forefather of English gin, from way back in 1761 and this new gin is named in his honour, as well as being inspired by his roots in the North West of England.  The bespoke square-shaped bottle makes it a great-looking gift but the distinctive gin inside is what will really appeal. It has a savoury-spicy-citrusy flavour, which comes from the secret blend of eleven botanicals that are used to create this innovative, small batch gin.

Propeller trivet £19.99, Skandium 

If your dad is a fan of flying, design or cooking – or all three, he will love this stylish kitchen gadget from the Skandinavian designer store in London. Aerodynamic in shape, this is a trivet that looks good enough to leave out on the work surface but it also neatly folds away to fit in a drawer.

Divine Chocolate Tasting Set £6 RRP

With 12 little bars of six delicious Divine flavours, from intense 85% Dark chocolate, to creamy White chocolate with strawberries, there is sure to be a bar to suit everyone. With tasting notes and a flavour wheel for instant chocolate expertise, the packaging also includes information about Divine’s unique story, including from one of the cocoa farmers who belong to Kuapa Kokoo – the co-operative of cocoa farmers who co-own the Divine company and share in the profits they help to create. An ideal gift for a dad who likes to support good causes – or just has a sweet tooth.


Uuni 3 Portable wood-fired oven £199 uk.uuni.net 

If your dad has always dreamed of having a wood-fired oven in the garden, then this might be just the right bit of kit for him. Made from brushed stainless steel, it looks good but will weather well, and it heats up really fast, meaning a wood-fired pizza takes around 60 seconds to cook (and will have the perfect crispy base every time). Try it for seafood kebabs, meat and vegetables too.


Cooked subscription

With top chefs such as Jason Atherton, Atul Kochhar, Jose Pizarro and Tom Kitchin along with The Curry Guy, GBBO’s Rob Kirby and Aussie Ben O’Donoghue on Cooked, as well as step-by-step techniques for making bread, cocktails and barbecuing – there is plenty to keep your dad browsing in our virtual library. Why not treat him to a subscription as the gift that keeps on giving all year round?
