Misleading packaging

It's not cream and shouldn't be listed in the Cream section!

Fine for occasional use

I sometimes use this if I can't get hold of buttermilk it is 85% buttermilk, it works fine for pancakes and scones albeit the results are not quite as light, and you need to adjust the recipe for the extra fat. I wouldn't use it as a cream substitute on desserts.

Grossly Misleading

Elmlea is not cream, and should not be categorised or marketed as such. It is synthetic, and consists of hydrogenated vegetable oils which are trans fats and linked to obesity and heart disease. It is marketed as a healthy alternative but it would be banned in some countries. We're better off buying the real stuff.


Garlic Chicken

Garlic Chicken

This simple dish uses the strong flavours of the Balti paste - such as cumin, coriander and other authentic spices, with garlic. The result being a tantalising dish that is easy enough to rustle up for a quick weekday meal.
