Recipe of the Month

Autumn is well and truly here and it's perfect weather for a Senior Chef soup!  Give our Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup a go - it's one of the new recipes added to our updated cook book - out soon!  If you aren't a fan of blue cheese, use your favourite grated cheese.

Remember the 2-2-2 rule with soups:  

  • you have 2 hours to get your soup in the fridge once cooked
  • two days to eat your soup
  • it will be at its best eaten within 2 months of being frozen.

Happy eating!
