Hi.

Welcome to my blog. A small insight in things I have found useful and beautiful.  I hope you enjoy it!

Picard on Ocado

No time to go to the supermarket? Or can’t face lugging the kids with you?  I know the feeling and have never appreciated frozen food as much as I do now.

I buy frozen food for two reasons:

The first being I always thought “Fresh was best”. However I hear from more and more sources that frozen vegetables and fish are fresher by the time they get to you than those bought hot off the counter.  As soon as they are picked or caught, they are frozen straight away, keeping all their vitamins and goodness.

The second reason I like frozen food is that it’s a great way to cheat and impress your guests.  They often sell delicious puddings, canapés, and ready made meals if you know where to look.  France has pioneered this market for years with the famous frozen food company “Picard”, which has finally teamed up with Ocado to offer a small selection of their most popular products in the UK.

From delicious beef carpaccio, salmon and chive tartares, flammakueche tarts, vegetable gratins, to macarons, tarte tatin, mini eclairs…  all of which are drop dead delicious… So try them out and impress your gang.  They don’t need to know that you didn’t spend hours cooking it!
