How to make Mulled Cider

Posted on 19 December 2012

What could be better on cold winter evenings than a hot, spiced glass of mulled cider? At COOK we’ve been filled with festive tips recently (to tell you truth we just can’t contain our excitement in anticipation of the big day), but this little video about how to make Mulled Cider might just be our favourite tip.

Our Gourmet Mulling Syrup makes an amazing mulled wine, but it also makes a delicious mulled cider. Mulled drinks have a long history with recipes going back to the 17th century, but mulled cider seems to have had a boom in popularity this year, and we’re more than happy to follow the trend.

All you’ll need is a little mulling syrup, a lot of cider, some orange zest and orange segments, cloves and generous amounts of brown sugar to taste.

If you don’t believe that something so yummy could be so easy to make just watch the video above and we’ll show you. Remember Mulled Cider is not just for Christmas, it’s one winter warmer you shouldn’t need an excuse to enjoy!

Gluten Free Treats

Posted on 1 December 2012

A gluten free diet is essential for people with coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis, who are intolerant of the gluten found in wheat, rye, barley and, for some people, oats. But this kind of diet is notoriously difficult to shop for and can strike fear in the heart of any foodie. What about bread? And cakes? And biscuits? And other delicious (occasionally sinful) carbs?


At COOK we’ve made it easy to ‘Shop by’ Gluten Free on our website so that all of our delicious Gluten Free recipes are available for home delivery at the click of a button and in one place. Our handy little ‘Gluten Free’ symbol can also help to guide you with your online shopping.

Many of our curries, in portions of one to four, are gluten free and perfect for tasty treat nights in, dinner parties or quick meals after work. There’s plenty of powerful flavours packed in too, to give these dishes an extra special something. You can stock up your cupboards with these gluten free ready meals and you won't have to worry about awkward last-minute shopping with home delivery.
