6th March - World Book Day. The ILG team selects their treasured childhood books...

March 6th is world book day, children everywhere are heading to school dressed in their favourite fictional character (and dutiful parents have scurried, scraped and sourced the costumes...)

We think books are brilliant. We’ve all spent time engrossed in a really good read… whether its time spent in a magical mystical land, inside the belly of a whale or giggling manically along with our favourite fictional friend. So we are running a competition to win some lovely book tokens (one can never have too many books!) 
Tell us your favourite childhood book on our facebook page for the chance to win a £30 book token (there’s 2 up for grabs). Simply post your answer in the comment box and you'll be entered into a draw, entries close at midnight (GMT) Thursday 13th March, enter here

Bill Granger's delicious recipe for pancake day

YAY! PANCAKE DAY HAS ARRIVED... We love any excuse to eat zillions of divine fluffy pancakes so we thought we'd ask an ILG friend for a super scrummy recipe idea...

 Internationally renowned for his easy-going approach to cooking and particularly well-known for his way with brunch (New York Times christened him the 'egg master'), Australian restaurateur and food writer Bill Granger has sent over a delicious recipe for pancake day. We’ll be trying these tonight...


We also love Bill's lovely restaurant 'Granger and Co', in Notting Hill (we recommend you go! and if you can't make it to Notting Hill, why not try cooking some of the lovely recipes in Bill's Italian Food Cooking book... see below - for more information visit Bill's website

Send us your pics for pancake day - if your children are joining in the fun, then you really can't beat the classics: lemon and sugar, good old-fashioned jam and one of our fave's - banana and nutella... yum yum, send us your pics on instagram to #ilovegorgeousuk
