#CANNYJACK – Canned Food UK teams up with Jack Monroe
Canned Food UK launches its new #CannyJack campaign with six new recipes from acclaimed food writer and blogger, Jack Monroe.
Jack is no stranger to rustling up dinner from a handful of tins and she started to blog about her day-to-day cookery via her website jackmonroe.com which has amassed 30 million views.
Now with thousands of followers online her no-nonsense and delicious meals have won her both the Observer Food Personality of the Year Award and the Fortnum and Mason Food and Drink Award. In 2019, Jack launched her fourth recipe book, Tin Can Cook, packed with ambitious yet entry–level recipes designed for everyone.
In the spirit of Tin Can Cook, Jack has developed six exclusive recipes for Canned Food UK including carrot cake drop scones; steak, mango and black bean curry; Gigantes Plaki; crab chowder mac and cheese; Sicilian style fish stew; and creamy brown lentil daal.
“Tinned foods are a staple for almost every family in the land. We have a long-lasting love affair with canned tomatoes, baked beans and soups. Through these recipes for Canned Food UK, I wanted to introduce all my readers to the wonders of all the different varieties of canned foods – stewed steak and mango to crab meat and black beans.”
“I still fill my shopping trolley with tins – they are an excellent source of nutrition, convenient (who has time for peeling?) and with a long shelf life, tinned ingredients can be thrown together at a moment’s notice to make a variety of tasty, surprising meals for everyone.”
Each recipe will be available over the upcoming months on the Canned Food UK website (cannedfood.co.uk) as part of its regular ‘Recipe of the Month’ feature, currently the creamy brown lentil daal features as this month’s recipe. Foodies can also enter monthly competitions on Canned Food UK’s social media pages to win a signed copy of Tin Can Cook.
Robert Fell, Director and Chief Executive, Canned Food UK, said:
“Our latest collaboration with Jack really showcases the versatility of canned foods and how they are suitable for a wide range of diets. As we all know, cans are a great store cupboard staple and even count as one of your five-a-day.”
