In 2011, a YouTube video of a baby using a paper magazine like an iPad captured the world’s imagination. It was a cute but fascinating reminder that the youngest generation is developing a natural understanding of how computers work from the earliest age. But that understanding is about to get even better. Continue reading

Guest post: The best British blueberries

Want the best quality berries available in the UK? At family-run Hall Hunter Partnership, that’s what we’ve been working hard to produce for almost 50 years.

We have farms in Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex on which we grow strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and, most recently, blueberries. Here’s how we produce them, and how you can store and cook them for maximum enjoyment.

Win tickets to the London Swedes Crayfish Party

If you love Scandi cooking and produce as much as we do at Ocado, you should enter this competition.

We’ve teamed up with London Swedes to give away five pairs of tickets to their annual crayfish party. It’s a traditional (and somewhat raucous!) celebration of seafood – and London Swedes are holding theirs at Lisa’s, a fantastic Swedish restaurant on Portobello Road, on 28th August.

Guest post: Natoora’s perfect peaches

Summer is a very exciting time of year, and peaches are one of those fruits that make this season even more enjoyable and rewarding. A proper peach is something truly special – it has that impeccable natural sweetness, is refreshing and utterly delicious.

We went to great lengths to source the best varieties of peaches and nectarines.

White peaches from Natoora

White peaches from Campania

After a two-year quest, all our white peaches now come from a grower based in Campania, southern Italy. The several varieties that he grows are selected for their wonderful flavour, and ripen at different points through the summer to ensure that the white peach season extends over a couple of months. They are allowed to ripen on the tree and picked only a couple of days before their peak to ensure they get to you fully ripened. Each variety is different, yet they all share an incredible perfume, unique berry accents, and flesh either lightly tinged with red or deep purple running throughout, depending on the variety.

Guest post: Great British Butcher

Britain’s Next Top Supplier entrant, The Great British Butcher, made it to the final fifty with their tasty meat rubs in vintage-style tins. And now they’re available at Ocado. I caught up with the guys to find out more about what makes their rubs so special.

Q Congrats on getting listed at Ocado after making our Britain’s Next Top Supplier Top Fifty! How did you find the competition?

It was passed on by a friend in the retail industry – it seemed too perfect for a British family business with roots in the butchery trade not to enter. The competition was great – despite having a flourishing food scene in the UK it’s rare to see the large retailers actively supporting and celebrating British brands, and we jumped at the chance to take part. Everyone we’ve met at Ocado has been genuinely passionate about offering customers something truly unique and we’re proud as punch to get our GBB brand listed.​

Q Tell our customers about your product in five words.

A Quality flavours for quality meat.

Q What’s your favourite Great British Butcher flavour and what do you do with it?

It’s got to be the Bloody Mary Rub. We found that the heady flavours of the infamous cocktail work wonders as a punchy spice mix rubbed into a beef ribeye or flash-fried with some thick cut smoky bacon for the ultimate hangover-busting bacon sandwich.

Q Why should Great British Butcher make it into our customer’s trolleys this week?

A Our family’s been crafting seasonings and sauces for the British butcher for nearly 40 years. We want to help bring the cooking world and butchery a little closer with quality, all-natural flavours that pack a real punch and help home cooks experiment with a whole new world of meat.

Give us an interesting fact about the Great British Butcher range.

A Our rubs and crumbs are used in Windsor Farm shop on meat from animals reared on the Royal Estate. We like to think the Queen has great taste in flavours!

Well, you can’t argue with Liz. Grab a tin this week whilst they’re on offer – you can save 1/3 on the range if you order by 19th August.
