British Pie Week

It’s British Pie Week so we are celebrating with this AGA recipe: Dad’s Favourite Steak and Guinness Pie

Serves 4


500g (1 lb 2 oz) braising steak, cubed

2-3 tbsp oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 tbsp plain flour

500ml of Guinness

Salt and black pepper

225g (8 oz) mushrooms, sliced or quartered

280g (10 oz) puff pastry

Beaten egg to glaze

Using the boiling plate, heat the oil and fry off the meat in two or three batches until browned, set to one side. Fry the onions add the flour cook for a minute then slowly stir in the Guinness, return the meat to the pan, season and add the mushrooms. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Transfer to the simmering oven using the floor grid for 2 hours until tender. Cool.

Place the meat mixture into a pie dish and roll out the pastry to cover the top, glaze with the beaten egg.

Place on the grid shelf on the floor of the roasting oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden.


Everhot Cookery Demonstration

We hosted an Everhot cookery demonstration last week, despite the snow storm! We were fortunate to have the Sales Director from Everhot with us, Richard, who had come down from the snow covered dales north of Ryedale. It just goes to show that these Everhot people are hardy folks.

Thankfully we had an 11am start, by which time the roads had improved and the snow was turning to rain. Giving most people chance to arrive in time for fresh coffee and home baked biscuits.

Claire had planned a veritable feast of food to show people how an Everhot cooker works. We enjoyed grilled sausages with tomatoes and mushroom, presented as mini kebabs then cheese toasties, these were cooked on the top and melted cheese with toast was perfect for such a damp cold day. Also made from the warmth of the cast iron tops were Scotch pancakes served with raspberry coulis.

As a nod to lunch we sampled roasted butternut squash soup served in little espresso coffee cups with freshly baked rolls. Claire also produced meringues that were sandwiched together with her home made lemon curd and cream.

Next up was chocolate chip muffins and the most delicious orange Marsala steamed pudding – good enough to serve on Christmas day!

We also got to see how the Everhot produces a delicious roast chicken with steamed carrots and beans and lovely twice roasted potatoes. Then just when we thought no more food could come out of the ovens out came a beef casserole. And finally just because we have the induction hob on the top Claire showed that a stir fry could be knocked up in a few minutes at the end of a long and fruitful mornings cooking.

Stunning seaside shades from AGA make it a breeze to achieve the coastal look

AGA has added a sumptuous new colour to its range, with Salcombe Blue joining Dartmouth Blue to form a mini collection of coastal shades. In 2015 AGA launched the limited edition shade, Dartmouth Blue, and it was such a hit that it has become a permanent addition to the collection. Now the company has unveiled Salcombe Blue, which is informed by the gorgeous seas around the idyllic picturesque harbour town regularly listed among Britain’s favourite holiday destinations.

Both colours are available on the AGA Total Control – which can be on when you need it and off when you don’t – the AGA Dual Control, which has ovens that are on all the time and hotplates you can switch on and off, and the compact AGA 60, which, at just 60cm wide, is ideal for smaller kitchens.

Please contact us for details.

Cooking for Valentine’s Day

We’ve been spoilt this week as Claire has cooked up some delicious treats on the shop’s AGA for Valentine’s Day including a heart shaped salmon tart, French onion soup with Parmesan biscuits to dunk and tasty sweet heart shaped biscuits with a jam filling…yum!

If you are lucky you might see Claire cooking up a storm in the shop when you visit. Not only does it smell delicious, she offers samples to customers too!


The new AGA colours are here!

As spring approaches, colour palettes become softer and our attention is often focused on neutrals. This, though, absolutely doesn’t need to mean dull. In fact a perfectly chosen neutral shade can bring a room together in a way a bright could never achieve.

AGA has brought together a collection of colours that work perfectly for now, but will also stand the test of time.

  • Blush – this soft pink with cream and yellow undertones works brilliantly with other neutrals as well as with bolder pops of colour.
  • Dove – a pale grey with a hint of blue, this sumptuous new shade will work well with natural wood or painted cabinetry, as well as high-shine kitchen units and glossy marble.
  • Linen – cream was the first, and for decades the most popular AGA colour. Linen is a new take on this and, with a cooler, less yellow tone, it is set to become just as sought after as its inspiration.
  • Slate – rich, sumptuous and with real depth and a feeling of timeless modernity, Slate looks likely to become a staple AGA colour for years to come.

The new colours are available on the AGA 60– which, at just 60cm wide, is perfect for smaller spaces – as well as 3-oven and 5-oven Total Control and Dual Control models.

The AGA Total Control is on when you need it and off when you don’t. The AGA Dual Control features hotplates that can be turned on and off independently, saving on energy costs.
