Recipe For Success

Two food lovers join forces to show that a New Year-inspired health kick isn’t a recipe for the
end of all things decadent.

New outlook. New gym membership. New diet. It can only be January.

But eating well doesn’t necessarily mean a trade-off with your favourite goodies. We asked baker-extraordinaire In The Kitchen With Kate and healthy eating advocate Warren Nash to create a great-tasting, yet wholesome, treat. Their suggestion? A unique take on banana bread. Their task? Get all the ingredients they need in time for a lunch with friends.

Hunting down duck eggs while navigating through central London is no easy task, so it was only right that they were given the Audi A3 to help. The car’s driver-assistance systems and connectivity all prove pretty handy for when you’re shopping against the clock.

Watch the video to see Kate and Warren prove that, when it comes to eating healthily this January, you can have your cake and eat it.
