Food Love Stories

Behind every meal we love is a story. It’s more than just a bunch of ingredients. We know that the meals we make for those we love matter. Discover Food Love Stories, brought to you by Tesco.

‘Made to share’ meals

Nana’s ‘magic’ soup

When Nana from our story is called on to look after her poorly grandson for the afternoon, she knows something that might just make him feel better – her ‘magic’ soup. Somehow, it seems to do the trick, even though she sneaks a few ingredients into it that he doesn’t strictly like. But if he ever finds out, he won’t kick up a fuss, because it tastes so good.

Ed’s ‘rain or shine’ shawarmas

We Brits just love a barbecue, no matter the weather, and in our story, Ed is no exception. He prides himself on throwing the first barbecue of the season - and the weekend is the perfect opportunity. Come rain or shine, he’ll be grilling his famous shawarmas - through the lounge window if it’s chucking it down!

Frank’s ‘accidental’ salmon

Frank, from our story, can sometimes be a bit clumsy in the kitchen. But when he accidentally broke his whole salmon in half, he had a moment of genius, inspired by a recipe he stumbled across for salmon Wellington. A quick trip to Tesco for some puff pastry and the meal was saved - now he can pass it off as his signature dish.

Sal’s ‘surprise me’ cauliflower steaks

When Sal, from our story, met her boyfriend last year, it seemed they were the perfect match - apart from the fact she’s vegetarian and he most definitely isn’t. But, to his surprise, he loved her cauliflower steaks recipe and has since been converted; well, on Thursday nights, at least.

Mel’s ‘bubbly’ brunch

With the kids away for the weekend, Mel, from our story, can let her hair down for a night out with the girls - hurrah! Then it’s all back to Mel’s, which is great for her friends, because they know they’re in for a real treat come brunchtime.
