GREAT TASTE GOLD - AUGUST 2014

"Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink.  It has been described as the 'Oscars' of the food world and the 'epicurean equivalent of the Booker Prize'.  Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local retailer" Fino already has a number of Great Taste Award wining products, Fino Dark Balsamic, Fino White Balsamic and Fino Arrope but this year, 2014, we have once again struck Gold with Fino Garlic Oil - available in 250ml and 500ml bottles it is a delicious garlicky addition to any...

I NEVER KNEW YOU COULD DO THIS WITH AN ORANGE! - MAY 2014

Did you know that you can make a candle from just an orange and olive oil – until this morning, I didn't - it’s so clever and so pretty too Have a look at this link for a really interesting and simple idea - http://sfglo.be/nf - and no I am not necessarily advocating using Fino Olive Oil for this particular purpose but it does work because I used it!

CHRISTMAS 2013 - DECEMBER 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...
