Annette's websites of the week

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution- On Saturday 19th May Jamie Oliver is hosting the first ever international food revolution day. He wants people to join together and share their skills, knowledge and passion for food with the hope that together we champion healthy and notorious food.

If you read my blog earlier this week you’ll know that I’m a real supporter of Jamie’s vision and I think that getting involved is something that everyone can do really easily by hosting a dinner party or spending an afternoon in the kitchen with grandchildren and getting them to do some of the cooking- you’ll be surprised by how eager they’ll be to get involved.

The Food Revolution Day website is a fantastic resource for anyone who is interested in finding out more about the campaign and how you can support Jamie and his army of foodies. Get ideas for events; register yours online or search for an FRD event in your local area. Alternatively use the website to find some delicious recipes– Jamie Oliver has even featured a special collection of his own.

 

Talking TablesYesterday I blogged about party accessories from Talking Tables after seeing their Jubilee Range of cake toppers and cupcake stands- the cupcake thrones are my favourite. Although the website currently features lots of Jubilee inspired items it also has a variety of other ranges which could come in handy for birthday parties and summer BBQ’s.

Specialising in everything from party ware for children’s parties, weddings, anniversaries and afternoon teas Talking Tables is a great site to keep bookmarked for inspiration when you’ve got an event to organise.

I think that the prices online are pretty pricy, however there is something for every occasion and some of the items really are show stoppers so you could mix and match stand out pieces alongside more affordable party basics from supermarkets etc… Overall a really lovely site that will get you into the party spirit.

 

BBC iPlayerI regularly use BBC’s iPlayer to catch up with TV programmes which I’ve missed or forgotten to record. Although I’m aware that lots of people use this online on-demand service I’m always a little surprised when I come across people who’ve not used iPlayer or don’t know what it is.

BBC IPlayer

So I decided to include BBC iPlayer into my recommendations this week because it’s a site which is incredibly easy to use (plus a great way to get started on the internet) and can be a handy tool if you’ve miss something which you’d have like to watched. I caught up with Chatsworth earlier this week after missing it on Monday evening which I’d recommend watching.

You can use the iPlayer to view programmes which have aired on BBC TV or Radio. Search the ‘Most Popular’ selection for shows or if you’re looking for something more specific then select the relevant channel and day it was aired (or search by A-Z). Once you’ve found the programme click and play- it’s worth noting that most programmes only stay online for a certain amount of time so be sure to check out how long you’ve got to watch to avoid disappointment.
