As the fairtrade fortnight is drawing to a close, what do you think of fairtrade products? Do you believe they work? Do you buy fairtrade?

I personally support the scheme but not all do (see my post here). Share your thoughts on this board!

Winter leek season is in full swing, share your favourite leek recipe and be featured in TD!

The recipe should take under 40 minutes from start to finish (even preferably under 30 min) and be delicious. I will pick three recipes and test them with a panel of foodie friends, the best one will be featured in the first Feb issue of TD!
