    10 best gifts every beer lover needs

    You know why you’re here and so do we: an over-18-year-old dear to your heart has expressed more than a passing interest in beer. This creates easy inroads when it comes to present shopping.To make this list, we searched for gifts that go beyond what you’ll find on the high street to bring fresh flavours, experiences and producers to that special person, then put them to the test for quality, value, ease of use and, most importantly, taste (within reason: we didn’t taste the soap).

    Vegan fast food: The best plant-based dishes in McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut and more

    It's no secret that "vegan" doesn't always have to mean "healthy". While once plant-based diets were synonymous with wellness and detoxing, they can be just as gloriously calorific and indulgent as any other — especially when it comes to fast food. From artisan restaurants to quirky street food vendors, London is full of fantastic meat and dairy-free junk food options — but if you’re out with friends, in a rush, or looking for somewhere to go in the early hours of the morning, these aren’t always an option.

    Greggs vegan ‘sausage' roll launches this Veganuary following PETA petition

    High street bakery Greggs is throwing itself into Veganuary with the launch of a vegan 'sausage' roll. Available alongside the regular roll, Greggs' bestselling product, the new offering will be free of animal products, replacing the sausage filling with Quorn, and wrapping it in 96 layers of puff pastry. The decision has come after a petition by animal welfare organisation PETA was launched last year calling on Greggs to product a vegan version of the product, of which 1.5 million are sold every week.

    12 surprising foods you can and can't put in the freezer

    Sure we know there are certain foods we keep in the fridge that we know we really shouldn’t, but you can more or less chuck anything in the freezer, right? Wrong.In fact there are some foods (and drinks) that die a horrible death if they are frozen. Think soggy salad leaves, flavourless fruit and fizzy drink explosions.On the flipside there are some surprising food stuffs that freeze amazingly well and could reboot your whole kitchen ethos.“People can get quite confused when it comes to understanding what can and can’t be frozen, this is mainly down to food labelling,” Stuart Benson, Sales Director of Gorenje UK. “Unless it expressly states that it can be frozen, people will quite often shy away from doing so.”So how do we know how wide to cast the frozen net?“As a general rule of thumb it is not recommended to freeze carbonated drinks as the frozen gas may expand and explode in your freezer,” Stuart Benson continues.“While this isn’t dangerous, it might cause an awful mess! You should also steer clear of freezing food and drink in glass containers. The dramatic temperature change could cause the glass to crack.”But if you’re looking for some more specific suggestions about what you can and can’t freeze, we’ve saved you the hassle (and potential money-wasting) of putting them to the test yourself.

    Suddenly Vegetarian: 13 things that could happen if everyone turned veggie overnight

    It’s National Vegetarian Week! Which means there’s more delicious meat-free recipe inspo and fancy plant-based restaurant recommendations to lure you into going veggie than at any other time of the year.Tempted? A recent survey revealed that 12% of UK adults follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, rising to 20% of 16 to 24s. Meanwhile, the amount of red meat being eaten in Britain is on the wane, declining almost year-on-year since 1950, and this trend looks set to continue.And a YouGov poll last month showed that 56% of the UK now believe they don’t need meat for a good meal.But what if the number of us turning to the green-side kept rising? What would happen if everyone suddenly stepped away from the bacon butty and embraced an entirely veggie-based diet?Would meat-farmers all be made redundant? Would we suddenly see a spike in healthiness?We consulted the food and veggie experts to imagine what the world would look like if we all turned vegetarian overnight…Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
