Over the past few weeks, the UK has been enjoying the best spring in living memory. Days have been warm and bright, stretching week after week, and we’ve been making the most of them by enjoying picnics at every chance. Not only has it been absolutely heavenly to be able to spend so much time out of doors, but we’ve been making a real effort to shop as locally, and as small as possible (I can’t remember the last time I was in a supermarket), so the produce we’ve been enjoying has been second to none too!
Obviously, as wonderful as picnics are – there’s always a bit of a tidy up, and since we’ve been told only to venture out when necessary, making the most of each dish is of paramount importance. I’ve been priding myself on saving every scrap and cutting down on food waste, so these absolutely gorgeous Tala Cookware Wax Wraps couldn’t have come at a better time!
Available in a range of designs – I love these fun cheese and honeycomb ones! The packs come with three sizes of wraps inside, which can be used instead of clingfilm or sandwich bags. Honestly, at first I was a bit skeptical – the wraps are cloth covered in beeswax, so on opening them they feel stiff and almost papery, but as you fold them around your leftovers (we’ve used them on bread and cheese) they warm up in your hands, and become far more malleable.
The range of three sizes means you can save even the littlest left overs, and in the kitchen, I’ve even placed the largest sheet over a pan as it cools, and it’s worked a treat!
As someone who cooks pretty regularly, it’s so great to know I have these on hand for whenever I need to pop something into the fridge or back into the cupboard. They’ve saved me from using so much plastic wrap – not to mention they’re much cuter to use too!
Not only is my kitchen now eco-friendlier thanks to my stunning Beeswax Wraps, but I was very kindly gifted this stunning glass storage container with vented lid.
Truly, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Over the past few weeks I’ve been gutting the house, getting rid of all those plastic Tupperware containers which were past their best or missing lids, so getting a shiny new one like this felt like Christmas.
The clip-top lid keeps food fresh for longer, and it’s completely airtight and spill proof. I love how multi-functional it is – not only does it keep fruit tasting just-picked, but the glass base can withstand up to 240 Degrees and it’s perfect to use for oven baked meals.
The vented lid is designed so you can even pop it straight into the microwave for easy heating. The glass base also looks slick enough for easy oven to table serving.
Tala Cookware Wax Wraps are priced at £12 and their Glass storage container with vented lid is priced at £9.25 and they’re all available here.
