The fabulous foodie event which takes place at Regent’s Park between 21st-24th June is a great way to celebrate world class cuisine,  as more than 40 of London’s top restaurants come together for the most gastronomic and glamorous grazing session yet.

Billington’s Launch Mini Packs

Two_Colour_SecondaryIf you haven’t yet discovered the extra-ordinary taste of unrefined sugars then now’s the time! Billington’s has just launched mini packs of Demerara, Golden Caster and Muscovado sugar in Sainsbury’s and the 250g packs are the perfect size for sampling in your baking.

Here at Baking Mad.com we know that the difference between a good recipe and a really great one is using the best quality ingredients available and when it comes to sugar this means Billington’s unrefined cane sugars. Tried and tested by the Baking Mad experts, Billington’s sugars give your baked treats a superior flavour and rich colour, compared to other brown sugars which refine out rather than lock in the natural molasses of sugar cane.

So go on, pick up a pack in your Sainsbury’s home baking aisle today, we promise you won’t go back!
