Tuck in: the home cook has never had so many recipes to choose from

The food world has changed a lot over the past year. Plastic-free packaging is – hopefully – becoming the norm and we’ve mostly done away with plastic shopping bags. Huge brands like KFC have created “chicken” vegan burgers and organic produce is no longer sidelined and is becoming mainstream.

But the biggest change is how and where we’re eating.

An estimated 18 restaurants a week are closing on the high street. Back in May, Jamie’s Italian ceased trading, and others including Byron, Carluccio’s and Prezzo all closed restaurants too.
