For those of you that don't know Hush, or are just discovering their inimitable slouchy yet fashionable style, here is a little bit of background, and our top picks of this season. You can win £150 worth of Hush vouchers here, as well as £150 worth of COOK vouchers - just in time for Mother's Day!
With Mother's Day on the horizon (note to self, March 30th), here's a chance to win her something extra special: £150 to spend on exquisite laid-back style from clothes company Hush AND £150 to spend on exquisite laid-back dining from COOK. (And no, we won't force you to give it all to your mum if you win. Just remember: you wouldn't be here without her....)
If you think foraging is only for Ray Mears, think again. Caro and Ginny, who make our amazing Wild At Heart preserves, have written the brilliant and beautiful Hedgerow Cook Book. They've kindly provided us with five, signed copies to give away.
Jude's all started with Jude’s husband who dreamed of making the tastiest ice cream. He mixed and churned away, naming the ice cream after his wife, Jude! Soon the whole family grabbed their spoons and joined in!
We're pleased to announce the winner of our Royal Baby Name competition is Mrs Rachel Campbell-Colquhoun, now the proud recipient of £100 worth of COOK Gift Vouchers. We don't have a fancy frame on an easel, or the world watching, but we hope Rachel will be pretty happy with her prize all the same.
From our wordle we can see that the COOK community en masse thought that the baby was going to be a girl, with Elizabeth, Victoria, Alexandra and Diana high up on our list of girl's names.
Out of all of the boy's names entered, we had 175 Georges. We randomly selected Rachel as our winner and she will shortly receive her prize of £100 worth of COOK Gift Vouchers.
In anticipation of Kate's baby maybe arriving this weekend we thought we'd run a little competition to guess the name. The prize will be £100 worth of COOK gift vouchers (which just happens to be the perfect gift for an exhausted new mum - but don't worry we won't make you send your prize to Kate.)
We'll also make one of our beloved wordles so we can see what the general COOK community consensus, make a bit of history (and feel smug together if we're right.)
So - what do you think the royal baby will be called? Fill out the form over here to be entered into the competition and the wordle. Enter fast though - the competition will end before the baby's name is announced...!
In honour of St Valentine’s Day we held a competition to win a Love Box: a week’s worth of meals for two, all for the price of one meal out on Valentine’s. We figured that it was worth remembering, amidst the heady mix of pink champagne and deluxe chocolate boxes, that love isn’t just for Valentine’s (it is actually all around), and so we asked you to give us a definition of just what you think ‘love is’.
If anything, the competition only seemed to prove that love is many different things to many different people and still one of life’s great mysteries. The winner of the Love Box was Graham Hawarth who described love as ‘seeing the soft smile on her face when she wakes up to breakfast in bed’. Now, isn't that enough to make your heart melt? This was not an uncommon theme: for many, breakfast in bed was an essential in any loving relationship.
