Who doesn’t love chocolate? (well other than BBHC’s Pippa!) After watching episode 5 of Britain’s Best Home Cook, I immediately starting rifling through my ‘baking box’, which is a large plastic container, stuffed to the gunnels with my baking goodies.

My colleague Becca has been working on designing food packaging for a new eastern range, which is a range of frozen, oven ready shrimp products. I’ve enjoyed seeing this progress.
