Chef, Dean Edwards says make a date with breakfast!

*Farmhouse Breakfast Week 26 January ““ 1 February 2014*
Farmhouse Breakfast Week returns to celebrate the most important meal of the day. Taking place between Sunday 26 January and Saturday 1 February 2014, the week is organised on behalf of UK cereal farmers and producers, who grow and make the foods we enjoy at breakfast.

TV chef and breakfast lover Dean Edwards is supporting Farmhouse Breakfast Week, encouraging the nation to tuck into breakfast for a healthy start to the day. Dean has developed a brand new breakfast recipe especially for the campaign to help inspire you to Shake Up Your Wake Up!

To add to the celebrations, Dean is heading up a national search to find out who serves the country’s best breakfast dish for the Best Breakfast Awards ““ and your vote will decide the winners! From cafes and restaurants through to farm-shops, food vans and hotels, you can vote online for your best breakfast in January at The winners, as chosen by you, will be announced during Farmhouse Breakfast Week and Dean will be paying them a visit to sample the country’s ‘Best Breakfast’!

Research shows that eating breakfast can make you healthier and happier ““ giving you more energy, reducing stress levels, improving your concentration, mood and even helping you to manage your weight , , ! Despite this, nearly half of us (47%) skip breakfast at some point during the week and 15 per cent don’t eat a morning meal at all .

Dean Edwards said: “In the morning rush breakfast can fall down the list of priorities but it makes such a difference to your day. Eating a good breakfast gives you energy and means you are less likely to reach for something unhealthy mid-morning. There are all sorts of different breakfasts you can have, from the quick and speedy for when you’re in a hurry, through to delicious breakfasts for laidback, lazy weekends.”

During Farmhouse Breakfast Week, hundreds of breakfast events will be taking place around the country. You can join in and find breakfast events near to you, vote in the Best Breakfast Awards or simply browse and try one of the many breakfast recipes on the website at “”
