no_multi_tierWith reports of over six billion eggs consumed in the UK last year and the nation's growing appetite for free-range, award-winning Somerset-based egg producer, Blackacre Farm, has launched a new educational campaign, 'No Multi-Tier Here', to give people a better understanding of their egg's journey from the farmyard to the kitchen.

Highlighting the fact that many free-range eggs are now produced in industrialised multi-tier units, the No Multi-Tier Here campaign will be taken to exhibitions and conferences throughout the UK in 2016, supported by interactive presentations in schools, online resources and social media activity using the hashtag #NoMultiTierHere.

manna_from_devon_pizzaAre you looking for a way to learn new skills with your children throughout 2016? South Devon's Manna from Devon Cooking School's family courses allow the whole family to get hands on with local, fresh food, transforming raw ingredients into a whole range of delicious dishes, in one of their four family cooking courses (£75pp).

When grappling with bored children, there is no better way to occupy their minds (and hands) than getting them involved in a Family Pasta cooking class. The whole family will learn to make pasta from scratch, getting messy in the process. The children will be rolling, kneading, cutting and filling their own pasta dough to create ravioli, tagliatelle and lasagne.  They will learn to make staple sauces that will give them a skill for life, including pesto, butternut squash and ricotta filling, homemade tomato sauce and a classic beef ragu.
