You may have seen top chef (and metalhead) Simon Wood on Download TV this summer. He showed us how to make a smokey Old Fashioned cocktail, as well as one of those famous Download Yorkshire pudding wraps. If you thought that looked good, you’ll definitely want to try a meal at WOOD Restaurants. With two locations in Manchester and Cheltenham, a gift voucher would make the perfect present for the foodie in your life.

If the aforementioned foodie in your life happens to be vegan, look no further. BOSH’s brand new cookbook ‘Speedy Bosh!’ features recipes for a whole bunch of vegan meals that take less than 30 minutes.
