Would you drink milk from a bag?

BBC reports on milk in plastic bags.

One of the UK’s leading supermarkets has begun stocking milk in plastic bags – but how easy are they to use?

Rory Cellan-Jones road tests a bag of milk to find out if it is likely to replace the traditional doorstep pint.

Would you drink milk from a bag?

Watch the video.

Looks all a bit complicated to me.

Having said that, I read on a Canadian blog  that they have been using milk bags in Canada for years. In the UK we are sometimes a little behind, for example it took us ages to move away from leaded petrol for example, or embrace organic produce.

Though I know really large milk bags have been used in catering for some years, but this is the first milk bag for consumers.

Mango Chutney

Watching Saturday Kitchen this morning and really liked the mango chutney which James Martin made.

A very simple recipe which sounded really easy and looked tasty.

Saturday Kitchen Cookbook

I do quite enjoy Saturday Kitchen, and some of the recipes from the series are quite good or at least inspiring.

This is a nice book with great recipes and lots of lovely photographs. Buy it from Amazon..

Pan-fried calf’s liver with port and sage

BBC Food has published what looks like a very tasty recipe from Saturday Kitchen, pan-fried calf’s liver with port and sage.

Probably like most people I am not a great fan of liver, probably down to the liver and bacon dish that I was served at school.

However I would quite like to try this, so I might.
