Drawing from its 50 years of experience of ‘scratch and batch’ cooking, as well as the personal experience of its colleagues, Lakeland is sharing home cooking and freezing tips via Facebook to help and inspire its customer community during the UK’s coronavirus lockdown.
One member of the Lakeland team has shared the recipe for her daughter Alice’s Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips and Honey, recognising that: ‘”Keeping the kids occupied while they’re off school for the foreseeable and you’re trying to work from home is no easy feat, and it would be very easy to leave them to their own (electronic) devices.” The sweet bread is “absolutely delicious with a reviving cuppa.”
Other recipes include Sally’s Spirit-Soothing Batch-Cooked Vegetable Broth, which is “packed full of healthy veg,” and Brian’s Pizza Dough Garlic Bread.
Lakeland closed its stores on March 22 and put its website and phone orders on hold. Chief executive Catherine Nunn issued a statement to customers: “This pause is necessary so we can ensure those colleagues who choose to carry on working are able to do so as safely as possible and in line with all Government guidelines.”
