I’ve started a new section on the website, called SixStars.

SixStars are ingredients, gadgets or equipment which I think have star qualities to help you cook and/or eat more healthily, in line with the SixFix idea. So that could be an ingredient that adds more flavour to your dish so you don’t need to add (so much) salt. Or a piece of equipment that means you don’t have to use so much fat in a recipe to get the same result. How about a gadget that produces beautifully smooth & creamy mashed potato so you don’t need to add so much cream?

A few examples for you -

  • Spray oil
  • Crushed red chillis
  • Sauce flour
  • Non-stick baking paper
  • Silicone pastry brush

Want to find out more? Keep an eye out on the blog and tips pages for new SixStars. Or search for ‘sixstars’ in the site search engine at the top right of the web page. Each time I use a SixStar in a recipe, I’ll add a new entry, with, where possible, details of where to buy. And who knows, maybe one day I’ll add a shop to the site so you can buy direct from SixFix!
