Giveaway (CLOSED): Denhay Bacon & Cheese and Nigel Slater’s Kitchen Diaries II

Denhay Bacon and Nigel Slater Prize

I am loving Nigel Slater’s latest series Dish of the Day.  What I especially enjoy is that most of his recipes are very simple ideas,  which require little prep, hands on time or faffing around and the resultant food is delicious and for me slightly nostalgic.   Just my sort of cooking, and, also the sort of food that anyone should be able to achieve.

The folks at Denhay Farms (who make very good bacon and cheese), have conducted some research into food memories and have found that the top three are the Christmas turkey, fish and chips and school dinners.   I have very vivid memories of my grandfather carving enormous Christmas turkey several years, for around 25 people, then dividing up the Christmas pudding, ensuring that my cousins and I all got a coin or two!

Primary school lunches – gypsy tart (a very Kentish pudding) served with a quarter of an apple to help get some of the sugar out of our teeth, and salad containing the devil’s food of raw celery which I tried to disguise in the equally revolting instant mash.

I also remember once being told off for talking – somethings never change – and having to stand and wait until everyone else had finished.  Ever one not to avoid confrontation I think that I told the teacher that my parents had in fact paid for me to have a hot meal, not one which had got cold.

Denhay would love to hear about your food memories, and one of them could win a £5000 holiday! Click here by the 30th November for a change to enter. This is a judged competition, rather than voting, so I am happy to support it!

For one Fuss Free Flavours reader I have bacon and cheese pack from Denhay, as well as a copy of Nigel Slater’s new cookbook, The Kitchen Diaries II, packed with recipes and reminiscences, to be won.  For a change to win simply follow the instructions below.

  1. laura banks says:

    my dad making me sit at the table until i ate my broccoli was there for hours and strangely i love it now i’m older

  2. A food memory of mine is my nan cooking me sausages when I was younger and when checking if they were cooked caught her hair on fire on the grill!

    Not sure if this is what you were looking for but it is memorable to me!

  3. Karen Shuttleworth says:

    Playing ‘who can eat the most roast potatoes’ at school….

  4. rachel humphries says:

    Sadly corned beef with really badly mashed potato. My dad loved the meal so we got it all the time :(

  5. Lucy Taylor says:

    Pilchard sarnies, yuck!

  6. rachael woodhouse says:

    The first and only time my husband cooked for me, it was a curry from a jar & naan bread, was so nice but would of been even better had he heated the naan bread up!

  7. Clare Scammell says:

    Food memory: My sister and I are both quarter hungarian, and one night we decided to replicate our Nannas famous “nokedli”. Its basically hungarian dumplings, that are serve with a paprika chicken stew. Anywho, we got to work. In order to make the dumplings you have to sieve the dough through holes into a pot of boiling water so they form nicely. However without the right utensils it is a nightmare.. as we soon found out! I pulled a muscle trying to push the dough though a colander, my sister slipped and splatted it up the wall and it took us well over 2 hours to make our dumplings. It was good though! But now we really appreciate the effort our nanna put in cooking Nokedli for over 10 of us when we were younger!

  8. Ellie Bromilow says:

    oooh that would be eating my grans stuffed cabbage when i was a kid i loved it x

  9. I remember the traditional cakes my gran used to make. I’d have to make them myself if I wanted them now.

  10. Jam Roly Poly wrapped in greaseproof paper and then steamed – bliss.

  11. Heidi Roberts says:

    My mom’s spaghetti and meatballs was always my favourite dish – I cannot make it as good as her even though she tried to teach me several times.

    I would love to win Nigel Slater’s new book.

  12. I remember making purple cakes with my sister, we’d put such a slosh of red and blue food colouring in, it’s amazing anyone was willing to eat our creations!

  13. Tracy Nixon says:

    When we were little my dad gave us food poisoning while mum was in hospital having our younger brother. He kept reheating the homemade Sheperds pie mum had made before she went into hospital – each time we turned our noses, he said we would be served it again at our next meal! So it gave us food poisoning and were ill for days!

  14. Jane Willis says:

    Going to the funfair with my Grandad – I must have been tiny as he died before I turned 4 – and buying a bowl of steaming hot black peas to share as we walked around. I may be showing my age now, it must be 50 years since they stopped selling black peas at funfairs!

  15. I actually have terrible memories of school dinners. Being force fed beetroot and the delicious pink custard

  16. Making peppermint creams and christmas biscuits with my Auntie to give to my parents at christmas.

  17. I was a toddler standing on a stool in my nan’s kitchen pulling the feathers out of a dead chicken for dinner.
    Those were the days!

  18. Eating Chocolate Crunch Cake with Mint Custard at Infants School

  19. Hazel Rea says:

    My aunt used to make a marble cake with pink, white and chocolate swirls in it – she baked it in a range fired with peat – and no marble cake I’ve subsequently eaten even tastes as good as that one.

  20. Sandra Clarke says:

    Eating a spaghetti dish by the Rialto Bridge in Venice. I can still imagine myself there now and have never tasted spaghetti like that since.

  21. Being fed cauliflower cheese and being told it was macaroni cheese coz i hated cauliflower

  22. Michelle Inwood says:

    Eating my Nana’s apple pie on a Saturday lunchtime


    School dinners. Meat pie that we used to call Pedigree Chum pie, and spam fritters.

  24. I quite often had the smell of delicious cooking sitting up stairs as a teenager then eagerly hurrying to the kitchen to find an unpleasant looking and tasting dish.

  25. My nan had the strange habit of putting boiled egg yolks into her chicken broth. I usually avoided them as I didn’t particularly like eggs, but one day one of them ended up on my plate covered in herbs. I was only 7 or 8 and didn’t recognise the egg at first, so I asked my dad what it was. The joker he is, he told me it was the eye of a chicken – it really looked like it and I totally believed him. I found the idea of having the egg of a chicken on my plate though that I haven’t touched boiled or fried eggs since…

  26. Kerry Clark says:

    I have quite bad food memories, like burgers from a can and meatballs in gravy, Yuck! Basically, if it came in a can, we would have it for dinner!

  27. Tink Rhonda Lee Mse says:

    Home made beefburgers and chips on a Saturday night cooked by my dad.

  28. Pauline Rendell says:

    I remember always having Spam on Tuesdays and hating Jam but shocking my parents once by asking for it on toast! I still hated it and they were angry, they should have been pleased I wanted to give it another go!

    Eating my mums beef stew

    Food memory?
    The first time I cooked with my now Partner, he taught me how to make toad in the hole. It has now become “our” favourite dinner and makes me smile each time I cook it.

  34. Cheryl Edwards says:

    When i was a child i lived in a small shop in Cornwall and we had an old fashioned wire to cut the cheese and an old slicing machine to cut the bacon.

  35. When I was snowboarding in Italy stopping in the mountain cafe for Calzone and apple strudel and a cup of tea – so tasty

I still get teased about it now at all our family gatherings

  42. Steven Appleton says:

  45. Vicky Limerick says:

    My Great Aunt’s dumplings

  46. Karen Lloyd says:

    As a child we always had fish and chips from the takeaway on a Friday, which was fantastic. The only downside was I was always made to drink a cup of tea afterward to ‘wash the fat away’. I hated tea!

  47. If I did not eat my dinner as a child I would get it for breakfast

  48. Making cakes with the kids – cant beat it

  49. Angela Webster says:

    My grandad was the cook at my grandparents house when I was a little girl, he made the most amazing mashed potatoes, they smelt and tasted delicious and no mash has ever come close to it, I would have loved to have known what his secret was.

  58. Jeff Wolf says:

  65. The smell of my Grandmothers Bread Pudding baking in the oven.

  66. Caroline H says:

    When I was a student, we got a new housemate who was an Indian exchange student. He had never been to the UK before and we spent many a happy day trying to track down the ingredients he needed to cook the food he ate at home, trying to adapt our western kitchen to cook things in the same way and trying the results. We made some great food and I realised that Indian cuisine bore little resemblance to the dishes available in the Indian restaurants of the day.

  67. Emma J Lowe says:

    Whenever I stayed at my nan and grandads house we had meat,potatoes and veg with homemade gravy every lunchtime and the gravy was the best I have ever tasted :)

    Having my first taste of crab aged 8 crab and cheese sauce topped pancakes smothered with more crab and more sauce it was amazing !

  76. When I was little, many moons ago, when we were ill we were given bread in hot milk with sugar on top. I can’t stand the smell of hot milk some 50 years later!

  77. Mark Whittaker says:

    Growing up we were pretty skint. There were days when mum would give us what she called “Slop” which was just warm milk, stale bread and sugar. Not something I want to revisit. However another economy dish I still love, “Bacon Clanger” – a steamed suet pudding made with bacon off cuts sage and onion. Every now and then I get mum to make it and for me its a real comfort food. Before anyone thinks this is a story of the great depression, this was in the 70s ! lol

  78. Learning how to bake with my Aunt

    My Grandma making soup ang baking on a saturday, the smells in her kitchen were to die for. Eccles cakes fresh out of the oven, cut open and lashings of butter on them, they were divine

  80. Susan Crosswaite says:

    On my first day at school I refused to eat my school lunch. When the dinner ladies asked me why I wasn’t eating it I replied “because I’m not allowed to eat leaves”. Living in the country my Mum had always drilled it into me not to eat leaves because they could be poisonous – I took her at her word that day when they served me salad at school!

  87. Karen Barrett says:

    Going to the corner shop on a Tuesday with my Grandma to pick up our Bacon Ribs. They were always wrapped in muslin an we seemed to be the shop forever as my Grandma liked a natter!

  88. Jane McColl says:

    My favourite food memory is eating Japanese street food in Tokyo at Meiji Jingu, We had Takoyaki which is octopus pieces cooked in balls of seasoned batter with mayonnaise and bonito flakes.

  103. Nearly burning the house down making fudge with my sister!

  110. Ali Thorpe says:

    When I was a child, I used to catch those feathery seeds from inside thistles which would float around on the evening breeze. We called them fairies and would make a wish when we caught them. I always wished for ice cream.

  111. Claire Butler says:

    my Nanny’s dinners were just amzing she was just the best simple cook ever no-ones food comes remotely close. I wish she hadnt passed away before id had a chance to learn from her properly. I grew up helping but i still dont know her secrets

  121. Janice Beal says:

    I remember baking Empire Biscuits(does anyone remember them?) with my mum on a Sunday afternoon. I was very proud to be allowed to ice them and always coloured the icing a bright shade of pink!!

    Licking out the bowl was also a perk!

  122. I always remember going to my Grandma & Grandad’s house for a Sunday roast, I was only 8 at the most and obviously far too young to understand what parts of the roast meat I should eat and what I shouldn’t! I’d always be stuck with a piece of gristle chewing for hours! Put me off roasts for about 15 years!

  123. rupert summerton says:

    I used to get really excited about having the smallest new potatoes. One day I decided I couldn’t bear to eat them straight away. Mum’s rule was that we had to clear our plates before we could leave the table so I wrapped the tiny ‘tatters up in a tissue to eat later….NOT recommended, potatoes with stuck on bits of tissue paper are not nice!

  130. Amy Ripley says:

    Having baked beans on toast in a bowl – dads speciality!

  151. As a child I detested meat … I would chew and chew and chew until it was a tasteless lump of dry yuckiness… thankfully I have grown out of this dislike and now love cooking and eating meat! ..Funny how early memories always stick tho!

  152. making mince pies with my mum when i was about 3

  153. Claire Fraser says:
