Up, Up & Away!
We're over the moon to be offering you the chance to win a most fabulous prize – an unforgettable Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flight For Two! This golden opportunity comes courtesy of Virgin Balloon Flights who offer the finest, uninterrupted panoramic views of our fine kingdom from the sky. At Roots & Wings we're pretty smitten with the glorious countryside that the United Kingdom has to offer. From the beautiful, ragged coastlines, to the rolling hills and the hard working, cultivated fields – we have a lot to admire!
On Cloud 9
The lucky winner will be treated to a one hour hot air balloon flight, for two passengers, completely free! With well over 100 launch locations to choose from, our winning pair can select to set off from a location that's convenient and means the most to them! After an hour's panoramic flight the winners will be able to enjoy a celebratory glass of champagne before being presented with a Flying Certificate endorsed by Sir Richard Branson.
Love Our Landscape
It's the amazing support of rural communities who enable the Virgin Balloon Flight pilots to unlock this unbeatable experience, by allowing the hot air balloons to take off and land on their property. The gratitude of the Virgin Balloon Team goes further than just appreciating the support of rural communities. The team works hard to raise vital money to fund projects to protect the rural landscape and the communities who support and care for it.

Butternut Squash & Ginger Soup

For those people wishing to stay on firmer soil we have a delicious and simple recipe to share!

There's nothing quite like the comfort of tasty soup made from seasonal produce. Here is our favourite Butternut Squash & Ginger Soup recipe.

1 organic Butternut Squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into chunks
2 medium sized organic onions, peeled and chopped
3 cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons of organic oil olive
4 tablespoons of organic unsalted butter
1 litre of chicken stock
125ml orange juice
salt and black pepper, to season
1. Heat the oven to 200C
2. Put the butternut squash chunks and rosemary sprigs onto a baking tray, sprinkle with oil and season to taste. Pop into an oven and roast for 30-45 minutes until the squash has nicely caramelised, but not burned! Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
3. Meanwhile melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the onions stirring often until they've softened. Next add the ginger and cook gently for a few minutes. Then add the orange juice and stock before bringing up to the boil. Remove from the heat.
4. Discard the rosemary sprigs and add the roasted squash to the pan and stir thoroughly. In stages add the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Return to the pan and heat gently. Season to taste. Serve with Roots & Wings Brittles or some crusty bread.
Wishing you good luck with your entry!
With best wishes – Olivia
