New in My Kitchen June 2017

Books and foodie products that are new in my kitchen for June 2017 and that I’ve been enjoying over the last month:

Vegan in 15 by Kate Ford

Vegan in 15 by Kate Ford - New in My Kitchen June 2017

I’ve known Kate online for a while through her blog The Veg Space, which is packed with delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes with gorgeous photography, make sure you pay it a visit! We also met in person at the Food Blogger Connect Conference in London in September 2015. In January this year, as well as a new addition to her family, Kate’s first book Vegan in 15 was published by Short Books. It is crammed full of delicious and quick vegan meals (including puddings!) and is now my first port of call for quick plant-based meals and when I want to try something different. Recipes I’ve bookmarked to try next include stir-fried tenderstem and kale with pesto butter bean mash, pitta stuffed with harissa chickpeas and hummus, and how could I forget the chocolate and peanut butter freakshake.

Have your Cake and Eat It by Mich Turner

Have Your Cake and Eat It by Much Turner - New in My Kitchen June 2017

Mich Turner’s latest book Have Your Cake and Eat It is full of healthier and more nutritious bakes which you can fit into your personal diet and lifestyle. I’m very partial to a regular slice of cake and being able to have some ideas for healthier baking, without feeling like I am being deprived, is brilliant. The book includes recipes which are gluten free, dairy free, fat free, lower fat, lower sugar and lighter and more nutritious, so there is lots there to suit different people and their required diets and preferences.  The date, banana and peanut butter muffins are excellent for breakfast on the run and for school lunch boxes. The popcorn bars are also a favourite in our house. I also like the variety of recipes for large cakes with a healthier twist. Published by Jacqui Small and available now.

Superfood Chocolate from Doisy & Dam

Superfood chocolate from Doisy & Dam - New in My Kitchen June 2017

Just take a look at these great flavours! Superfoods combined with the best organic chocolate make this a great range of tastier and healthier chocolate. I’ve been enjoying the dark chocolate goji and orange and coconut and lucuma, with both of these I loved the added texture from the coconut and goji berries respectively. The milk chocolate vanilla and cacao nibs was also another favourite, such a smooth chocolate enhanced by the vanilla. Available in Sainsbury’s now and you can find out more here.


Premier Estates Prosecco, Grand Rosé and Mini Prosecco

Premier Estates Prosecco and Grand Rose - New in My Kitchen June 2017

These grand-looking bottles of prosecco and grand rosé are just perfect for your next party or family occasion. We enjoyed both at a family party and found the fruity flavours perfect with a meal. It is described by those in the know as having “hints of honeysuckle, citrus, pear and apple, aromatic with a hint of sweetness and a fine delicate finish” and I agree, it tasted great. The mini bottles will slip nicely in the picnic hamper for summer picnics and music festivals too I reckon! Available online from Premier Estates Wine with free UK next day delivery.


Disclosure: I was sent these products to review on my blog. All opinions are my own.

Nice haul. Loving the sound of some of those chocolate bars. Really enjoy finding new products in posts like this.

Love those mini bottles of Prosecco – perfect to pop a stripey straw in on a picnic. Who’d have thought chocolate could be a superfood?!

I love the sound of both cook books! I think I need to add them to my collection 🙂 The Doisy & Dam chocolates are so good! Only tried a couple of flavours so far, but I want to try them all! 😀

Kate’s book is brilliant. I think I’d like to get my hand on Mich Turner’s book as well as the chocolate and prosecco. What a lovely haul.

I did not know that Kate had a cook book out! How exciting! The chocolate looks so tasty too 🙂

Thanks for the book review Lucy, so glad you enjoyed it. That prosecco and chocolate looks rather fab too – not at all jealous
