I have been doing my best to get back into cooking from fresh rather than using ready meals or ordering take aways. Aldi have recently launched their very own “Brand Tv” which features several videos and recipes and thus giving me the perfect opportunity to attempt to enhance my own cookery skills.I have to admit tho that I was a little wary when I first heard about this. I had visions of being some sort of mad chef attempting to catch up with a live video link but luckily it’s nothing like that at all.
The Brand TV (Taste Kitchen by Aldi) broadcasts weekly and bi weekly videos that showcase quality recipes. The videos can be followed and replayed multiple times and the videos are viewable on the Aldi You tube channel. The videos feature top chefs Such as Luis Troyano from Great British Bake Off 2014 and Simon Wood, this year’s Masterchef winner.
To make my own recipes from the Aldi Tv, I was sent over some vouchers to go shopping with and was able to find all the ingredients I needed.
Here are all the links to the recipes and I am hoping they add a few more as the weeks go on. The first dish I made was the rump steak which was extremely easy to follow and tasted so good this way.
To accompany the steak I also found a tasty recipe for avacado salsa which took about 5 minutes to make and went really well with the steak. My 8 year old daughter also very much enjoyed her steak with salsa so these recipes certainly come in handy for family meals too.
I also found a rather tasty looking chicken and tomato pasta bake recipe which is on the “Team GB athletes” favourites pages here. This one took a little longer to make but was worth every bite.
The Aldi recipe pages are just bursting with mouth watering recipes to make, both sweet and savoury; easy and not so easy. All the recipes have ingredient lists with step by step guides and all the ingredients can of course be found in Aldi stores. Look out for the new cool along videos too as they are added.
