Our regular foodie and cook extraordinaire Blake Proud from MKR came in on Tuesday feeling a little green… Not from a bad piece of chicken or from envy, but because at the moment it’s the avocado moment in the spotlight!

Apart from being incredibly delicious and nutritious, these lovely delights are SO cheap and plentiful of late. But forget your run of the mill guac. Blake decided to bring in a delicious and unusual recipe to try- avocado chips. And they were surprisingly drool worthy (Kirste and Dan ate the entire lot). Apart from opening our eyes to the endless possibilities this versatile little fruit can be used for, Blake explained how to figure out how to find a ripe one to buy. Kermit, forget lamenting it‘s not that easy being green, Blake and the avo have proved you wrong!
