Farmison and Saturday Kitchen

Farmison and Saturday KitchenOnline purveyors of fine food Farmison & Co has teamed up with hit TV show Saturday Kitchen to offer, for the first time, exclusive recipe boxes created by some of the world’s top chefs, delivered monthly and free to your door.

The leading online retailer, which specialises in Michelin chef-quality ingredients delivered direct to your door, is offering lifestyle foodies the chance to cook alongside the weekend food show’s top chefs with monthly deliveries – or a one-off gift – of official Saturday Kitchen boxes, packed with fine food and recipe cards from the likes of Raymond Blanc, Ken Hom, Mark Hix, Tom Kerridge and Angela Hartnett.

With enough judiciously sourced and seasonal goodies for two or four people – hand selected by the Farmison & Co team – the contents can be whipped into three first class meals as seen on the television show.

So, for less than the cost of a top-notch restaurant meal, home cooks might be cooking up a fine dining fricassee, a beautiful bourguignon or a chef-standard steak for a romantic meal for two or a five-star dinner party for four – all that’s needed is the celebrity guests!

“The best chefs use the best ingredients, and we’ve always been committed to getting these kinds of foods from the UK’s best, small producers delivered direct to home cooks’ kitchens,” says Farmison & Co co-founder and former restaurateur John Pallagi. “Now, for the first time, Saturday Kitchen fans can watch their favourite chefs on TV and then cook these meals in their own homes – it’s a deliciously new way of cooking!”

Saturday Kitchen’s Executive Producer Amanda Ross added “It’s great to be able to offer viewers, no matter where they are, the chance to get hold of the best possible produce. We always use the best we can find on Saturday Kitchen and now it will be easy for the viewers to get the same quality of produce to make the dishes as good as our star chefs.”

Look for Farmison alongside Saturday Kitchen at the BBC Good Food Show at London Olympia (November 15-17) or Birmingham (November 27-December 1).

restaurant in our living roomTwo Yorkshire couples do battle in the home restaurant stakes, plumping for two very different strategies. Kim and John go for local organic produce serving posh nosh to fewer diners, whilst their rivals Gary and Deborah opt for a home bistro using four microwaves and cash and carry food to serve as many diners as they can possibly squeeze into their living room. Theres chaos when the seating plans go to pot, rows break out between chef and diners, and raw food is sent back by disgruntled diners.
