Around 5 years ago I purchased my first Squall® coat - a 3-in-1 Parka that has seen me through the worst of winter weather and is still looking and feeling as good as new. This last weekend, the winds were blowing practically gale-force at the southernmost tip of the UK,... Continue reading

A semi-regular column answering questions about clothing. Reader Rich Melon writes in asking, “What do I need to know about fleece?” Excellent question, Rich.

We’ve been lucky with the weather so far, but no-one could have failed to notice the cold snap over the last few days. And with Christmas fast approaching, now might just be the time to invest in (or ask for!) a brand new insulated coat or jacket. Not many of... Continue reading

What could be more festive on a cold winter’s evening after traipsing around the shops or singing a few rousing carols than a glass or two of delicious mulled wine? Reminiscent of the ski slopes or one of the increasingly popular Christmas markets, a little nip of the warm, red... Continue reading

Jack O’ Lanterns - the legend Halloween is here again, bringing with it the usual customs of dressing up, trick or treat and the carving of pumpkins into Jack O ’Lanterns. In Britain, in the early 19th century, a Jack o’ Lantern was simply a term used for a lantern... Continue reading

The final week of the Lands’ End Bake Off – and what a week it was! The category was ‘Showstopper cakes’ and the bakers certainly pulled out all the stops: every single contribution looked worthy of making a Masterchef final. Double points were up for grabs so a lucky 2... Continue reading

The penultimate week, and it's clear that this isn't 'just a bit of fun' anymore – everyone means business! One baker lost sleep worrying about her meringue; another's poor pastry put paid to their entry and a wilting garnish threatened to scupper the chances of high presentation scores for another....

Week 6 of the competition and it was with a slight sinking feeling that competitors realised that just two subsequent weeks remain – how will we get through Wednesdays without our weekly sugar fix?

Traybake week and the boys did themselves proud with an all-male contingency bagging the best scores. Unsurprisingly, Millionaires' Shortbread and variations on the traditional brownie recipe were out in force; but perhaps more surprisingly, raspberries were the theme of the day and seemed to feature in nearly every recipe or...

This week was the halfway point of the Great Lands' End Bake Off and the teams are certainly rising to the occasion. With fewer entries than previous weeks, it was clear that successful bread-making was a decidedly harder art to master. Despite this, the plucky few who accepted the challenge... Continue reading

After an impressive start to our Great Lands' End Bake Off last week with a delicious array of homemade cupcakes (well, most of them were homemade anyway!), we were amazed to have an even bigger contribution this week.

Being an avid bunch of foodies here at Lands' End HQ, we were ever so slightly excited at the start of the new series of The Great British Bake Off on Wednesday night. And also being somewhat competitive (and a little bit greedy) we thought we'd stage our very own... Continue reading
