Stu’s ‘never fails’ mac ‘n’ cheese

Normally, uni student Stu is a beans-on-toast kind of man. But now that (much to his family’s surprise) he’s bagged himself a girlfriend, Becky, signs of change are afoot. For their six-month anniversary, he’s decided to go all out and cook her favourite meal: mac ‘n’ cheese. With some Stu-style touches (bacon, yessss!), and a little ambient candlelight, it’s the best mac ‘n’ cheese she's ever had.

Yann and Pam’s ‘recharge’ ratatouille

Yann and Pam love music. When they were younger, they enjoyed nothing more than partying at festivals – they even shared their first kiss at one. Now it’s their daughter’s turn to rock out in the mud and rain. They know exactly what she’ll need when she gets home: a proper healthy meal, like their baked ratatouille.

The ‘fantastic’ carrot man

Tesco farmer, Ben, takes real pride in growing great-tasting carrots – he loves their sweetness and versatility. His favourite recipe, by far, has to be his mum’s simple and delicious carrot and coriander soup with warm crusty bread, because nothing is as satisfying as a childhood favourite – especially after a cold, wet day out in the fields.
