We got excited about National Doughnut Week (who wouldn’t be?), we are celebrating National Vegetarian Week (go veggies!), and we are prepping for Cesar Salad Day (really? Yeah, it’s a day). This whole National [insert food] week has us thinking – is it all just one big marketing ploy? Do all these foods really need their own week? We set out to investigate!
This week is National Vegetarian Week in the UK, an annual awareness raising campaign run by the Vegetarian Society to promote the benefits of vegetarianism as well as highlighting various tasty veggie dishes. Events are running throughout the week all over the country in addition to online giveaways and featured recipes which this year are focusing on the vegetarian breakfast.
With Eurovision time coming round once again, we got to talking in the office about our top TV guilty pleasures. Read on, but please, please don't judge.
For thousands of students nationwide, the dreaded exam season is looming which will mean hitting the books bigtime for the next few weeks. Whether you're doing some last-minute cramming for an exam, completing your coursework or finishing off that epic dissertation, one thing's for sure, a good diet can go a long way in helping you get the grades.
So-called brain foods have been proven to aid memory, improve concentration and increase energy levels. Particular winners are wholegrains foods, oily fish, leafy vegetables and fruits high in vitamins and antioxidants, such as blueberries.
This is all well and good but in the highly stressful time of exams when time is of the essence, it's often hard to find time to get to the supermarket let alone cook up a superfood feast. Well luckily this is where hungryhouse comes into play! Not just famed for the traditional takeaway fare of pizza and curry, there's also numerous healthy options available that'll help your overworked brain stay on track and maintain your high energy levels. Here's a few hungryhouse takeaway ideas that'll help you get the grades you want.
In 1762 when John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, fatefully asked for ‘some slices of meat between two pieces of bread’, he probably never imagined that he would be starting a culinary trend. I’m sure that someone uttered the fateful words; ‘it’ll never catch on’.
250 years later and the world of sandwiches is bigger and more diverse then ever, from the humble cheese and tomato, to the majestic BLT.
In homage to this king of stomach fillers we carried out our very own scientific study (i.e. a Facebook poll) to discover the nations favourite sandwiches, here’s what we learnt.
In case you’d somehow missed the big news, this week is national doughnut week! Yes, a whole week dedicated to this most mighty of snacks and all for a good cause too as the proceeds made from the sale of doughnuts at participating bakers across the UK will help to raise money for The Children’s Trust, a national charity which provides care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and health needs.
Some classics are best left untouched. I'm referring to classics like The Dukes of Hazzard (suffered from a terrible film remake) or The Who song 'My Generation' (suffered from a remake by Hilary Duff). But I'm going to suggest that the classic pizza does not belong in this category.
Don't get me wrong; a classic Italian pizza with tomato sauce, fresh grated cheese and pepperoni is a legendary thing. However, I will argue that there are endless possibilities when it comes to pizza. Mind you, this is a statement coming from someone who likes pineapples on pizza, truly believes there is no wrong way to eat a creme egg and doesn't mind a good rationing of HP sauce on BBQ meat.
That being said, I'm going to share my delicious recipe for Thai chicken pizza.

Easter has come and gone, Christmas is miles away, and your birthday may or may not be in the next 2 months. These three things combined made us feel that you need a pizza party!
We asked you beautiful people: "Who's on your dream pizza party guest list?"
Your answers were remarkable! Our heads went spinning as we imagined the epic, and not so epic, pizza party guest lists.
