The UK's Best Family Recipe


We launched a competition earlier in the year to find the UK’s best family recipe. We went on the hunt for a wholesome family favourite dish that always gets everyone around the dinner table. Our exclusive competition, Seasoned With Love, was tasked with finding the best family recipe and the winning dish was to be created and added to our Autumn Winter menu…

Top Secret Ingredients

You voted in your hundreds and we had some wonderful dishes sent to us with heart-warming back stories. From dishes from your childhood, to recipes that have been handed down through the generations, to smells and flavours that reminded you of those who are no longer with us, to real family focussed dishes, that were sure to please everyone seated round the table: Seasoned With Love was a raging success!

We were overwhelmed by your entries and we wanted to thank you all for sending your recipes. Alas, there could only be one winner, which is where the very talented Lyn comes in.

Lyn Busy Cooking Her Mystery Winning Dish

We had industry experts review the entries and Lyn’s mystery dish really stood out to our judges. A clear winner, this luxury dish was a real family pleaser. Packed full of flavour, it’s delicious ingredients and all-round appeal made it a real show stopper.  Lyn has been perfecting this dish over the years and it's been their family favourite for over twenty years and she is asked to make it for her tribe regularly. She has fine-tuned this thanks to her years working in a kitchen and has developed the ingredients to create a dish that we can’t wait to share with you!

Lyn was invited to visit us in our development kitchen and show us her cooking magic. She cooked up a storm and presented us with her winning dish and our chefs sampled it and were bowled over by the great taste and presentation of it - and the rest, as they say, is history!

We're busy working hard behind the scenes to add Lyn's winning dish to our Autumn Winter menu and we know you’re going to love it as much as we do!

We will keep you up to date on its development: Watch this space!
