My roastie photie competition terms and conditions

Competition - win a £100 food vouchers

Did you know that the average North West household pours 14Ibs of fat, oils and grease down the drain in a year?

Nobody wants to be calling out a plumber over Christmas to deal with sinks and loos that have over-indulged with left-overs, cooking scraps and fat, and the inevitable Christmas gravy. 

With this in mind, we thought it would be a great time to highlight the issue while also helping to solve a much debated issue – what exactly is the best way to make the perfect roast potato (there are in fact over 16 million Google page results for ‘perfect roast potatoes’!)

We want to see the results of your favourite recipes, whether your secret is goose fat, dripping, olive oil or simply a bit of butter.

So we’re launching the ‘My Roastie Photie’ competition, asking you to post a photo of your perfectly cooked roast potato with the hashtag #binfat2winthat – giving five people the chance to bag £100 of supermarket vouchers. Just whatever you do, don’t pour your leftover fats down the drains!
