OUCH! - MARCH 2014

  I suppose it is good news but Fino has reached the point of having to become VAT registered - OUCH!  Good news is that olive oil is zero rated but, strangely, balsamic vinegar is not.  Price changes will come into effect from the beginning of April 2014 so if you want to get ahead of this please get your order in before April 1st - www.finooliveoil.co.uk/shop  On a more cheery note here's a really good (and pretty healthy) snack idea which a customer gave to me last week - she assured me it was delicious and having tried it...

Warming food is definitely on the agenda too so here are two very simple and delicious recipes inspired by the fact I happened to have the ingredients in my fridge today! Squash is one of my favourite vegetables but they are also so lovely just as decoration.  I bought one last...
