This awesome stainless steel lunchbox by Mintie, bought on Amazon for £22. If that sounds a bit steep, remember that this is a very sturdy product which should last many years and obviate the need for plastic boxes and bags. It’s too small for something like an apple or a banana, so it comes with a cloth drawstring bag. The little pot is so handy for hummus and soya yoghurt. The pot’s lid is silicone and leakproof, and the silicone band for the outside of the box means you can slot in a small piece of cutlery without having to worry about taking up space inside. I especially love the fact the box is divided into two compartments: no more soggy crackers!
These two flours are from our local Indian grocery and are the new staples in our gluten-free baking repertoire. On the left, mogo flour (made from cassava) is a superb choice for cookies or tortilla-style flatbread- I’m working on a flatbread recipe now and the first version was very promising. We can’t wait to see how it performs in cakes. The second, faradi atta, is a great gluten-free flour made from millet and chestnut. Find our chapatti recipe here. We also add it to pancake batter, cakes and dumpling dough.
