While not everyone has what it takes to become a Michelin-starred chef, thanks to a variety of TV programmes like Ready Steady Cook, MasterChef, Hairy Bikers and Saturday Kitchen, ordinary Brits are becoming more inspired to create new and exciting dishes at home.
Mecca Bingo is now getting in on the act as part of its 60th birthday celebrations, and over on its blog, it’s started to publish a series of 60 different recipes in the run-up to it becoming a sexagenarian in May 2021.
The brand currently plans to publish one new recipe each week on Fridays, and by our calculations, this means that there’ll be new dishes to try and create for the next year and two months!
What’s even more interesting is that the chosen recipes have been submitted by Mecca’s own staff, and the first employee who wants to share the secret to cooking the perfect meal is Catherine Warrilow who runs the brand’s social and content team.
Catherine’s recipe for a Wicked Pasta Sauce was passed onto her by her mum and it only takes 10 minutes to prep. If you try it out, you’re invited to leave feedback using the comments box.
Other recipes that have been published so far include chat host Michell’s Diet Cola Chicken (which we have to say looks delicious) and Mundeep’s Cheesy Veggie Bake which can be served either as a main or a side dish.
Each recipe is accompanied by a background story, a list of required ingredients, cooking instructions, a difficulty level, and estimated prep and cooking times. Plus, you can easily print any of them out using the handy “Print Recipe” button.
So, next time that you’re taking a break from playing online bingo, why not head over to the Mecca Bingo blog and find something tasty to create for yourself or your family?
