Woohoo! We're in the top 50

Posted on 27 February 2015

Woohoo! 

Some sore heads this morning ... Awards dinner last night for the Top 100 Best Companies To Work For and we came 44th! What's more, we got a gong for the best company for staff wellbeing. Ironic, given the lack of wellness in some quarters this morning. More crowing no doubt next week...

How to put on an amazing dinner party on a school night.

A fancy dinner for eight on a school night is tricky to pull off. Here’s how we did it on Friday with a minimum of fuss. (We used our Winter Wild Venison Casserole for the main course. There’s a small amount left in shops but this would work just as well with any of our slow-cooked casseroles.)

Feel Good Diet Club 2015 - The Results!

Posted on 3 February 2015

2015 marks the third year of our Oh My Goodness, I get to eat normally, Ryan Gosling-approved*, unscientifically tested, January diet plan. In year one, Jemima lost 8lb by eating delicious COOK food for the month of January. Yay! In year two, Hannah lost a stone by eating delicious COOK food for the month of January. Woohoo! 

This year we had a whole posse of people at the Kitchen planning to eat delicious COOK food for the month of January in a bid to lose a few pounds (not because they need to, just because they want to). 

*IN YEAR ONE, JEMIMA KEPT A PICTURE OF “THE GOZ” ON HER DESK WITH THE MESSAGE: “IF YOU EAT BREAD, RYAN IS SAD.” SHE DIDN’T. RYAN WAS HAPPY. RATHER, HIS PICTURE WAS.

*WE THINK THIS COUNTS AS APPROVAL. AT LEAST, WE DO UNTIL RYAN’S EXPENSIVE LA LAWYER TELLS US OTHERWISE. 

 
Here's how we did...

 


 

JEMIMA'S STORY..

So the below was our Feel Good Diet Club Chart that I made to help us all see how we were all doing (it's beautiful, I know, you're all jealous).   And yes, that's me, over on the left. A measley 1 3/4 lbs.   I thought I'd start and lower your expectations, so that when you read about Ed's 12lb weight loss below you'll feel super excited.

In all honesty I don't quite know what went wrong given that in year one I lost what I thought was a wonderful 8lbs. I was diet guinea pig extraordinaire, until Hannah beat my attempt by a whopping 6lbs.  Needless to say - expectations were high.
