[Competition] Win a Knorr Flavour Pot hamper

We all value a bit of convenience every so often and it's rare to find a cook who assembles everything from scratch. The key thing is to employ some good old-fashioned common sense and choose clever convenient ingredients. I tend to be pretty light on the convenience ingredients, but there are always tins of tomatoes in the cupboard, along with high quality stockcubes. After all, I wish I had the kitchen space and time to make wonderful homemade stock (like my mother) but reality takes precedence. 

Knorr Flavour Pots recently invited me to a tasting event featuring a range of quick dishes cooked using a selection of the Flavour Pots. As a thank you for attending, I was given a little package of the different pots, which I gradually tried out at home over the following few weeks. The simple pots of minced garlic, red chilis and pepper pots proved to be very useful as base ingredients, while the curry pot worked quite well one evening when making a korma-like curry along with some ground almonds. The mixed herbs were a little too sweet for my liking (I really can't see any way preserving fresh herbs well), but overall I could definitely see a space for these pots in my store cupboard. 

The good news is that Knorr have provided three Flavour Pots hampers in a giveaway for the readers of Stitch & Bear. To be in with a chance of winning one of the three hampers, answer the simple question below, either by leaving a comment on this blog post, or emailing Please make sure to leave some contact details, as anonymous comments can't win. 

Q: Name any of the five varieties of Knorr Flavour Pot.

The competition will close at 8pm on Sunday, August 17th, and the winners will be randomly selected from all correct entries. Good luck!

This competition is now closed. Congratulations to the three lucky winners: Michael Breen, Amy Bennett & Rachel Douglas.

You can find the Knorr Flavour Pots in the herbs and spices aisle of your local supermarket, where a pack of 4 pots has a RRP of €2.29. More information and recipes can be found on the Knorr website
