Cooks & Co, the must-have fine food range for the discerning home cook, is celebrating the launch of its new look website with a special hamper competition and a free, downloadable, 24-page 'Guide to Speciality Oils' Ebook for everyone.
The special Guide, Cooks & Co's first - can be downloaded as an interactive Ebook from www.cooksandco.co.uk
It features key tips on how to get the most out of speciality oils in the kitchen, and uses a host of delicious recipes to explain how different oils can be used for cooking and baking with great results.
To further mark the launch of the new look website, Cooks & Co is running a new competition, offering visitors the chance to win one of five hampers packed full of its comprehensive range of fine foods and ingredients - from the highest quality olives and antipasti to speciality vegetables, wild mushrooms, chillies and jalapeños, speciality oils and vinegars.
Everyone who joins the brand's Cooks Club, an established online community for food enthusiasts, will be automatically entered into the competition. The Cooks Club area of the site also offers up cooking tips, the latest calendar of foodie events, and easy to follow, delicious recipes, along with guidance on seasonal produce.
Meanwhile, Cooks & Co's first Guide to Speciality Oils explains the key characteristics of the different oils in the Cooks & Co range - made up of Virgin Sesame, Walnut, Hazelnut, Roast Peanut, Grapeseed, Olive Oil with Chilli, and Rapeseed.
Special 'Tasting Notes' and a table of key health properties and nutrient contents also help readers build up a better understanding of different oils and how to use them, while a host of easy to follow and delicious recipes, including how to make five different types of mayonnaise, offer the opportunity to put new found knowledge to use straight away.
We hope our new Cooks & Co Guide to Speciality Oils will take some of the fear out of how to use different oils, and inspire readers to try out new dishes featuring their favourite oils, and oils they may not be so familiar with, in different ways. For example, Sesame Oil may be great in stir fries, but in our guide we show how it can also be used to create wonderful vegetable and fish dishes, while there are delicious sweet and savoury recipes to follow and enjoy for the other oils in our range.Sara Walsh, Author
