Fork out less by spending more time in the kitchen 

One of the positives coming out of lockdown, is most people are spending more time in the kitchen, satisfying their taste buds and that of their families.

With the takeaway menus back in the drawer and the kitchen knives sharpened, where do families find inspiration for new recipes for their tasty dinners.

Two point four have some favourites that we follow and we thought we would share them with you.

At Dad’s Table

Adam is a passionate chef, new Dad and recent graduate from Leiths School of Food and Wine in London who is on a mission to overhaul the way we think about food in pregnancy and early parenthood.

When his wife first became pregnant he couldn’t wait to start researching what were the best dishes to make for her to ensure both her and their baby were getting enough of the good stuff. He was disappointed to see that most advice centered on what you can’t have, rather than on what you can.

He therefore decided to write his own recipes to accompany her through the differing stages of her pregnancy.
