Love Indian and Chinese food? Now try the best of both worlds

If, like me, you love both Indian and Chinese food then get ready for the latest culinary trend to hit UK supermarkets, Indo-Chinese cuisine.

It’s all the rage in the Indian sub-continent and since arriving in Britain a few years ago Indo-Chinese restaurants have started cropping up in many of our major cities.

Now Indo-Chinese food is launching in UK supermarkets for the first time when Tesco introduces the cuisine to its stores.

Free From pudding innovator Lucy gets her just desserts

Demand for free from foods is growing dramatically in the UK.

Drum roll please…

The filled roll is soaring back to popularity as a lunchtime snack

In a recent blog I revealed how the filled roll was making a comeback as a lunchtime bite – more than 10 years after being usurped by the trendy tortilla wrap.

The results are in and I can confirm that more than half of you (52 per cent) voted for a roll, 21 per cent preferred a sandwich, 17 per cent went for a wrap and 7 per cent said they preferred something else altogether.

I’d say that with this latest news the roll is ahem, definitely on a roll!
