Fancy a spot of tea?

teaCaddyThe Jubilee countdown is on and I’m raising a cuppa to the Queen by hosting my first afternoon tea. What better excuse to dress up in my favourite vintage tea dress than an afternoon of drinking from dainty old-fashioned china and nibbling delicious finger food with friends.

So, to help you indulge in the time-honoured British tradition of afternoon tea too, we’ve got an Ocado tote bag full of Twinings goodies to offer one lucky winner. What’s more, those tasteful people at Twinings are giving away a free silk scarf by hot British designer Alice Temperley. Her scarves, as seen on ‘it girls’ including Pippa Middleton, are a hit right now and frankly I’d love one myself!

With a limited edition loose leaf Twinings blend and scrumptious selection of cakes from Mr Kipling in there too, our Afternoon Tea Tote is the perfect package for a ready-made Jubilee tea party. Plus you’ll get a complimentary 12-month membership for the Twinings Tea Tasters Club with free loose tea, expert tasting notes and tasting sessions.

To enter our competition simply email competitions@ocado.com with the subject line “Tea for Two” and tell us who your ideal afternoon tea guest would be. From one of the Middleton girls to Thomas Twinings himself, anyone goes, and our favourites will be posted on Facebook and Twitter after we’ve contacted the winner.

Happy brewing and good luck!

Love it or hate it?

marmite2In the run-up to the Jubilee we’re celebrating all things British, including our best-loved brands. So if you’re mad about Marmite, I’m asking you to spread the love. Here’s how:

I want to know your weirdest or most downright delicious recipe for this controversial spread. Do you add it to curry? Spoon it on ice cream? Stir it into fondue for one big pot of melty cheesey Marmitey goodness? Inspire me!

The most inventive recipe will win an Ocado tote bag of Marmite goodies, including mugs and a special edition Jubilee jar of the good stuff.

To enter, just email your idea to competitions@ocado.com, using the subject line ‘Favourite Marmite Recipe’, by 25th May.

Good luck and happy experimenting. I’m off to make toast.
