We couldn’t resist talking about roses this month.  Not as a commercialised display of romantic love but as a hypnotic, intense perfume and flavour popular in many parts of the world but underused in cooking here in the UK.  There’s no denying that rose buds and petals look poetic —flush, violet and crimson on a plate — but they aren’t just decoration, or just for sweets and drinks (although we love those too!).  We hope you’ll be inspired to use roses in more halal meat dishes.  For us there’s another

Penne, macaroni, spaghetti, tagliatelle, linguini, fettuccini, orecchiette, farfalle, vermicelli, orzo… Although pasta has been eaten in Europe as a staple food since the twelfth century, suddenly, fairly recently, we were warned off of it.  It would make you bloated, or worse still, fat.  But it’s about how you eat it, and how much of it you eat.  Pasta itself is low in fat and has no cholesterol.  Most pastas on the market are enriched with iron, and whole-grain varieties offer more protein, fiber and vitamins.  The key is to make

Brighten up a dull January with the golden, bittersweet, flaming colours of seasonal citrus fruits like blood oranges, Seville oranges, grapefruits, pomelos and mandarins.  (‘Mandarins’ is a general term that includes clementines, satsumas and tangarines, which can all be worked into a delicious halal dinner too).  Citrus fruits don’t just belong in the fruit bowl.  Here are some ways to add jewel-like citrus fruits to your meals for more zing and zest this winter.

Lights, late-night shopping.  Chocolate and Christmas TV.  But do you know what foods are in season this month?  As Brits, polls show us we’re pretty bad at knowing what’s in season when.  Supermarkets offer us almost everything we want, all year round, so why eat seasonally at all?  There are environmental reasons to eat what’s in season (reducing the energy and associated CO2 emissions needed for transporting food, being a big one).  But perhaps the most immediate reason to is that eating seasonal foods as part of a halal diet
