|Gravy in a Box Kit|
Once again, Demon Cook has been lucky enough to earn some free samples, this time from the PR company representing British Onions, who contacted me yesterday to ask if I would like a Gravy In A Box Kit from British Onions. Now, I'm not once to turn down a free lunch, nor indeed a box of foodie goodies, so of course I accepted, and at lunchtime today, a large and satisfyingly weighty box arrived for me. Inside, a good kilo or more of red and brown onions, plus other delights: another jar of Marmite, proper old-fashioned tomato ketchup by Wilkin & Sons, good old Colman's English Mustard, Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, and Mushroom Ketchup, an ingredient which has always intrigued me, and one which I regard as a store-cupboard essential, like Anchovy Essence, which my mother always kept in her larder. I very rarely make gravy, but I do like onions - and Marmite, and ketchup and mustard, and Worcestershire Sauce is essential for cheese on toast or on a cheese omelette - so there is no question everything will be put to good use. So, thanks again, British Onions and Phipps PR!
I wonder if I were writing a fashion blog, might I be in line for some Louboutins or the odd Mulberry handbag.....?
