British Food Fortnight with OXO Good Grips

From 21st September- 6th October is British Food Fortnight. 
The people at OXO have given me the chance to be involved by
reviewing two items from there Good Grips range, to use to prepare 
a meal during British Food Fortnight. 

I have chosen to make a Cottage pie using the two items that 
 I chose which were: 
-The Y peeler 
- The 3 in 1 potato ricer. 



The OXO Good Grips Y peeler features a sharp stainless steel blade
 that glides through even the toughest fruit and vegetable skins with ease. 
The soft, comfortable handle cushions your hand as you peel and is non slip. 

£6

The OXO Good Grips 3 in 1 Potato Ricer has 3 settings for many cooking task 
with a twist of the dial you can make fluffy mash on the first setting. 
The second setting can be used for pressing water out of items such as green beans
and the last setting is perfect for chunky apple sauce. 

£30


I found the Y Peeler very easy to use and it does what it says on the
packaging. The Y Peeler is easy to grip and I was able to peel 
my potato's speedy fast. 




Then we have the 3 in 1 potato ricer which was easy to use, simple to grip
and quite fun to use. 

As you can see in the above photo you just pop your cooked potato's in
and then press down. 



Now your left with fluffy mash. 


The Recipe: 

You will need: 
- Lean Mince Beef 
- a range of vegetables of your choice fresh or frozen 
- Potato's 
- Bisto Stock melts to give flavour
- Cheese to go on top. 

How to cook: 

1. Boil the potato's in hot water until soft
2. meanwhile add the vegetables to a pan cook over a medium heat for five minutes until soft.
3. Add the mince beef and cook until browned
4. Add the stock and mix in 
5. Once potato's are cooked drain and then mash using the potato ricer with a splash of milk 
and some butter. 
6. Spoon the meat into and oven proof dish and then top with the mashed potato
7. Sprinkle the cheese over the cottage pie and then cooking in the oven 
for 30 mins or until golden brown. 


Now you can enjoy a very yummy and very British cottage pie.
