Halloween is around the corner so felt only right to jump on the bandwagon and create something suitably spooky with Kidchup. As Archie’s two, rather than put on a scarily sugar laced spread I wanted to go for something savory and half way healthy instead. These ‘fingers’ are delicious hot or cold and are perfect for dipping in ghoulish blood aka Kidchup.Read More
It's been a big week. Aside from buying a car, a new camera and writing a will (as you do), I am beyond thrilled to be able to announce the first stockist of Kidchup. In fact, they like it so much they've even created a dish for kids with Kidchup in it. To find out all the latest, click below to watch the latest vlog shot on my new camera which means no wobble of rubbish sound!Read More
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Kidchup is great to cook with. Not to sound like I’m just sitting here, banging my own drum, giving it the hard sell but it’s a versatile sauce. Traditionally, ketchup is known to be good for adding to the likes of spag bol, marinades and cottage pies to lend them a rich, sweet kick and Kidchup is no different. However, instead of just upping the sweetness levels in a dish (and upping the refined sugar levels) it adds a bit of depth and warmth thanks to its DNA. This marinade is really quick to make and results in delicious, moist, sticky chickenRead More
The last three weeks have been a blur, albeit one laced with extreme highs and extreme lows. Predictably as Kidchup's launched, life got crazy. I have been absolutely bowled over by the level of love and support you have all shown me and this idea of mine. The sharing, supporting, encouraging and, of course, buying has kept me going through the very late nights, kitchen disasters and trips to the Post Office laden with 4KG parcels of Kidchup! I have been trying to record a video for weeks but failed miserably until now! My latest vid is still filmed on my phone and a bit wobbly, to say the least, but I am working on it I promise.Read More
I swore in my penultimate post that I was returning to the kitchen and honestly I’ve been in there ever since. However, I’ve been making batch upon batch of Kidchup and little else. Since Kidchup went live on the blog two weeks ago I’ve been in a very surreal bubble, cooking, bottling, wrapping and posting almost constantly. Losing all track of time and, to be honest, my grip on the ability to juggle home life and business as well as usual. Mealtimes have consisted of eggs, salads or, mostly, honestly just a takeaway. Junior has been doing better than we have, mostly thanks toRead More
I finally did it. My first Kidchup Vlog. Now, it's not the slickest and took me far too long to make and 'edit', didn't help that I had to take delivery of a pair of kicks in the middle ahem, but it's a start. The idea is this becomes a weekly way of documenting my Kidchup adventures and sharing it with you - rather than writing long, overly detailed posts sporadically.
Today, my labels arrived and I am so excited to finally be able to share them after keeping a lid on it all for MONTHS - I'd love to hear what you think of the finished product. In this vid you also get a sneak peek of the batch I've made for launch at Fun DMC on Monday. Remember, if you want to get one of the first bottles which I'll be sending out very shortly, put your name down HERE.Read More
