We have had great fun this last week, reviewing two new games for the PS3.  We reviewed the original Wonderbook game : Book of Spells last year HERE after attending an amazing launch event in London.  Well now, just in time for Christmas there are two new games to add to the series.

The Ingredients for – A Pie for the Shepherd Who Went Veggie! 

If you haven’t heard of Hello Fresh before, let me give you a little back ground to the service that they offer.

Hello Fresh is a new way to cook.  Every week Hello Fresh send you amazing recipes and deliver all the ingredients you need to prepare dishes.  So your meal planning and even the shopping is done for you.  The meals can be delivered for 2 or 4 people, and they can be for 3 or 5 of your main meals.  The recipes change weekly, so there is lots of variety.  You can choose a veggie box, as I did, or a classic box which includes meat or fish.  Or (and this one really appeals to me) a family box, which again provides the ingredients and recipes, but also ideas and tips to get the children cooking with you.
