Since the April 2018 issue of the magazine I’ve been fortunate enough to write a regular feature for BBC Good Food. It’s called Miriam’s foolproof hacks.
“What the heck is a hack?” I hear one person at the back yell (which may or may not be me). Excellent question; I take it to mean an easier, quicker or nicer ways of doing something, that you may not have done before. When you see it, you probably groan at the way you were doing it in the past. For my hacks I’ve taken a different subject each month and done a whole bunch of researching, testing and generally faffing around in the kitchen to try out suggestions and ideas of how to make various cooking tasks a little easier or tastier. I then measured them against my own specially designed groan-o-meter (patent pending) to find out how useful they are. Anything from, a “pretty handy” idea all the way up to the “Christmas-cracker-joke levels of can’t believe I didn’t think of that” makes the cut.
If you didn’t catch them in the magazine the guides are now available online, click on the links or images below to find out more. I hope you enjoy!
