How To Stick To Your New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on 2 January 2019

Ever wondered where your New Year’s resolutions always fail? Al, our Dream Manager, is here to help…

You’ve finally run out of turkey for sandwiches, you’ve drunk the house dry, and the box of chocolates only has the horrible coconut ones left. Attention turns to the year ahead and the pledges that many of us make to be better people over the next 12 months. Yet with all the best intentions in the world of ‘exercising more’, ‘losing weight’, ‘eating more healthily’, ‘learning a new skill’, ‘spending more time on personal wellbeing’ and so on, so few of us succeed. Why is that? It’s simple really. It comes down to perseverance. Only a few ‘stay the course’. We get bored, loose the excitement, the results are too slow and the initial will power ebbs away. Change is hard, staying as you are is easy.

Good luck!

Christmas Recipes

Posted on 10 December 2018

As a Food Team we wanted to share some of our favourite festive recipes with you all. We’ve put together a menu which will create a delicious evening for you to entertain friends and family with (granted, for a fair amount of work!), but equally, they’ll all work individually as part of a menu you already have planned too. If you do make any of them over the festive season, please do send us your photos – we’d love to see them.

Our new Whole Roast Duck with Cranberry Stuffing is a star of our new Christmas range: tender, boneless and succulent. It’s not essential, but a little orange sauce on the side is a great addition. Here’s an absurdly easy yet very tasty recipe from our chefs…

The Big Defrost 2018

Posted on 20 September 2018

Last week the COOK office team headed off to rural Kent to for the Big Defrost, their annual get-together. Now in its third year, it gives us some time away to celebrate what we’ve achieved, share some ideas and have a bit of a knees up. Highlights from this year included some very silly presentations from each of the individual teams, a big barbecue, and an inspiring talk from Andy Middleton, the coasteering guru and B Corp champion. The weather was kind, which was a relief as most of the team camped! Here are some of our favourite photos from the day…

Today we’re thrilled to welcome another shop to the COOK fleet, this one in the beautiful city of Winchester. The ribbon was cut this morning by Natalie, representing the volunteers at the local Citizens Advice Bureau, and there’s still lots of tasters, slices of cake and glasses of fizz being given away to celebrate.
