The Apprentice – Ross Fretten Watch: Episodic Breakdowns

Following up from my pre-Apprentice excitement post about long time pal of mine and now Apprentice candidate, Ross Fretten, I’ve decided I’m simply still too excited to not write more about his Apprentice journey. Therefore, I’ve created this! ROSS WATCH. I’ll be providing a few notes and snaps of each episode (from my TV, I am a professional) as it goes just to sate my need to type.

Of course, for updates from the man himself, follow his Twitter and Facebook page – tags at the end of this post. I’m not going to write out the whole episodes but there will be some *spoilers*.

The Great Pyramids of Giza – Cairo, Egypt

Hello hello hello! We’re now (at time of posting) in lockdown stuck in our flat but at the time of writing I was in holiday in Egypt… so I thought I’d finally whap up this post to tell you about the Pyramids trip we went on. This was our first full day in Egypt and after a day of flights and a late hotel check in the night before, we were collected from the hotel lobby at 8.15am. Ouch!

We booked via Discover Egypt but the actual tour company for this excursion was Wings, in case anyone is interested. The day trip cost was included in our tour package (we had the 10 night Classic Egypt package and stayed on the MS Tulip) but you can find similar on Trip Advisor for around £50-70, which should include a visit to the Pyramids, the Sphinx and Saqqara. If you want to go inside any of the Pyramids it’s extra.

Eat Pizza Repeat – Pizza Kit

Hello my lovely Forkers!

I was recently fortunate enough to have a couple of days in Pisa and Florence but somehow I was foolish enough to not stuff down a pizza during my stay! Don’t worry though, soon after I returned home I received this joyous package at my door from the gang at Eat Pizza Repeat! A pizza to cook in my own kitchen using carefully measured pre-prepped ingredients! Winner!

The kit I received was for 2x Premium Neapolitan Pizzas, along with a serving of Salame Di Chinghiale (premium wild boar salami), a pot of Mediterranean mixed olives and one of the Ultimate Chocolate Brownies. Swoooooon! As well as the lovely pizza kits on offer, Eat Pizza Repeat have a Deli section as part of their website which is filled with sliced cured meats, olives, cheese and treaty deserts like cannoli or gooey brownies. Mmmm…tasty little extraaas….

Here I am making up one of the pizzas, it was fun and easy to do and made me feel like I’d actually properly cooked something! Success and achievement!

We gobbled these up with the olives as a side which were a decent portion size and I was most delighted to find a little garlic in there too (love garlic)! The pizza itself was really nice. Again there was no scrimping in the kit and the cheese was plentiful! You can decide whichever toppings you’d like to add from either the Deli menu on the website or from your kitchen cupboards so you can make it as busy or simple as you wish.

We then heated the brownie in the microwave for a few seconds to give it a little bit of snuggliness. The brownie was super tasty and rich which I’m SO glad about because an unsatisfying brownie is a tragic thing…and not one you’ll find here!

Eat Pizza Repeat focus on the high quality of their ingredients and the food they produce – and it shows. They have a limited but very specific and deliberate menu so they can showcase their expertise in the products they provide. The ingredients actually come from Italy and they make sure they’re restaurant quality for customers too! It’s key for EPR that you enjoy your home pizza kit both for the experience and the taste. The pizza dough is even made fresh to order ready for you to shape into your dreamy pizza bebe!

DELIVERY:  It’s only £5 cost for nationwide delivery and the team deliver ready for the weekend on Thursdays and Fridays every week – but you must order before 6pm on Tuesday for delivery that same week.

The cost for a 2 pizza making kit comes in at £17.50 or you can get 4 for a bargainous £27.50. There are vegetarian versions available at the same price too. With the kits you get all the ingredients perfectly packaged in their little box along with a clear instruction leaflet. I made one pizza as shown in the video and in the second I added the toppings while the pizza was in the pan and grilled it all together. Both turned out great!

This year is pretty weird and many are having to stay home a lot more than usual and holdevents indoors with just the folks they live with. You could take this opportunity to give the gift of pizza….just click here! I received many foodie items for my birthday back in April and it really was a treat and also gave me something different and interesting to do!

I’d definitely recommend giving a pizza kit a go…I’m always down with eating…pizzaing and repeating. Gimme that pizza over and over again (please, thank you)!

Vanta hot sauce from Chilli Olly via The Sauce Shed

Ello! How’s it going? Rhetorical perhaps as we’re not actually having a conversation right now… Or are we? Feel free to tell me how you are in the comments! Anyway, today I’m telling ye about Vanta sauce from Chilli Olly, kindly sent to me by The Sauce Shed.

Firstly from appearances this is a very delightful bottle and it warms my emo heart with the pure black and white appearance of the bottle and branding. Could easily whack the design on a shirt and sell a few I reckon. Kinda like a band name or something!

Aloha 65 & London Grace #beachathomebox

Happy lockdown, guys, gals and everyone else! I’m reviewing the #beachathomebox today featuring a booze juice called Aloha 65 and a nail varnish from London Grace; I have to pop this paragraph in here as part of my agreement with Hype Experiences, the experience manager providing me with the products:

“Thank you @hype_experiences_london for arranging this media delivery. If you are a content creator, I recommend joining their community to review products! More info here https://hypeexperiences.com/about-for-reviewers

Full disclosure: this is my first experience with Hype and I paid £2 to receive and review the products! First onto the bottle of Aloha 65 which initially drew me to the listing to review…the branding is super pretty and, as a gal who enjoys a bit of retro shizzle and simple design, I was pretty much sold on this product visually straight away. I really like the look of the bottle and the website; bright, colourful and tropical! Seems like my sort of beverage! The flavours mentioned on the label are pineapple, ginger, chilli and lemon which sounds already like something I’d mix up into a drink. Lovely stuff, promising.
