SPRING WAS SO NEARLY HERE - March 2018

SPRING WAS SO NEARLY HERE - FEBRUARY 2018 Last weekend it really seemed like spring was here - dainty little snowdrops, the first daffodils, and shoots appearing all over the garden ... and now the Beast of the East has arrived and it is all change. Until today we had got away with it here in Oxford but as I am writing this the snow has started to fall and everywhere is turning white. At times like this I can understand people asking me why we came back from Spain! Despite plummeting temperatures outside all is good here at Fino HQ...

Fino Chilli Oil back on tap - October 2014

Firstly a huge thank you to so many of you who sent me such kind and supportive messages after my last email – I am delighted to be writing with better news this time. Those of you know us as a family will know what a big part chillies play in all food in the Taylor household – Rupert is mad about chillies – he grows them as well as eating them with everything (these are some of his homegrown chillies in the picture above) - in a slightly mad moment this summer he even entered a chilli eating competition...

It's a love thing - Feb 2014

I knew I should be sending out a Fino newsletter but have been waiting for inspiration to flood in ... February .. Valentines Day ... it's a love thing! Lots of people are kind enough to tell me they love Fino Olive Oil and Fino Balsamic I thought this was a good enough reason to remind people to replenish their stocks. So why not do just that, and if you do so before 14th February you will get an edible treat on me - something that I love and I think you might too. You may need plain extra virgin olive oil or...

Christmas 2013

Christmas 2013

When the children were very young I made gingham advent bags, each one appliquéd with a number 1 to 24.  These have been used for years in our house in place of advent calenders.  Each bag would contain a tiny present, or a forfeit, or possibly a task that we would do together that day, like making mince pies or decorating the Christmas tree.  Now the children are older, and two no longer living at home, sadly the advent bags have temporarily become redundant – they might not hold quite the same appeal for Rupert!  Instead, this year, I have...
