    Love the blog. Always interesting posts and I learn something new every time I visit you. This looks really yummy. Have you guys heard about the campaign Taste Success? The aim is to encourage younger people to explore an education and/or a career in the Food and Drink industry. We want to show everyone that the sector involves so much more than chefs and restaurants like for example scientists, manufacturers and technologists. Follow this link to get some more information: – The campaign also features a range of videos, the most popular is the Chilli Baby –> Please share and spread the word! 🙂
