It’s National Gingerbread Day…

Posted on 05 June 2015

What is aromatic, tastes fantastic and is a classic…? No matter your age it’s hard to resist the temptation of freshly baked gingerbread! A reminiscence of Christmas or perfectly coupled with an afternoon tea, today @thestudio we celebrate National Gingerbread Day! (Yes such a thing does exist!)

Tweet your favourite gingery flavoured food @studiovenues. We’d love to hear about it!

Around the world…

Ginger looks unique and is definitely the life and soul of the party, featuring in both savoury and sweet dishes around the world! Not to mention it’s well known title as a super food used to soothe and treat colds, coughs, indigestion or even motion sickness. Is there something this little root can’t achieve?!

So Manly…

If you were quizzed on the most iconic gingerbread shape, what would your answer be? Ours minds immediately conjure up images of decorated gingerbread houses and, of course, gingerbread men! But who thought of this ingenious idea to make small biscuit people? None other than Queen Elizabeth I, she apparently created edible forms of her guests who were thoroughly impressed, as one would imagine.

Once in a Blue Moon

Did you know there is such a thing as Blue Ginger? It goes by the name of Galangal and is used in Asian cooking!

(By the way, this is also marks our 50th blog post! Yay! Another reason to break in the cookie jar!)
