Freeview have launched a new competition

Do you enjoy cooking and showing off your recipes?

Then hurry as this competition ends on 25th June!

You can win a ‘celebrity cooking experience’ for two

Freeview recently conducted some research that showed that, whilst the popularity of cooking shows is higher than ever (approximately 1.4million Brits – 3% – admit to writing down dishes from cookery shows), one third of us eat take-aways or ready-meals while watching these shows!

Tomato Spaghetti

According to Lisa Faulkner, who won Celebrity MasterChef in 2010:

For me, the great thing about cookery programmes is they inspire me to try new dishes and show that making a good quality meal doesn’t have to take hours.

I couldn’t agree more!  Hopefully, the recipes I showcase on this blog appeal to all skill levels and time available, from quick, no-fuss meals to more complex sausage-making recipes.

I’ve pondered for a few days over which recipe of mine I should enter.  Should I show off some high-level culinary skill with a complicated recipe, or go with quick and simple?

In the end, I’ve decided to enter my fresh tomato and basil spaghetti recipe, as it is beautiful, delicious and seasonal…and ridiculously quick & easy to make.  With food this easy to make at home, there’s really no excuse for relying heavily on ready meals and take-aways!

To enter the competition, simply post (Twitter or Instagram) your picture with a snazzy caption, mention @freeviewTV and the hashtag #tvdinner.  It couldn’t be simpler!  Let’s champion great home cooking together and may the best recipe win 🙂

Good luck!
