What it’s like to train to be a vet

What does it take to become a vet? We speak to final year vet student Terri Steel to see how she landed her dream career.    What do you do?  I’m a final year vet student at Glasgow University.

As someone who learns by doing, I’d say I learn more in one week of EMS than in a year of lectures. We are lucky in that…

#MondayMeals: Fearne Cotton’s Sri Lankan vegetable curry

Many moons ago, before Rex and Honey came along, Jesse and I went on a far-flung adventure to Sri Lanka. It is such a vibrant country where the people smile from the heart and the food is made with care. On the entire trip, there wasn’t a dish I didn’t love.  This curry is inspired by the flavours we encountered and the warmth Sri Lankan food provides.  I love adding fish to this as it gives an extra boost of protein and makes it even more hearty.
