Competition! Win an Asda Extra Special Hamper with Products Approved By Leiths

Chefs at London cookery school Leiths have teamed up with Asda to approve their 'Extra Special' range of ingredients, available in the shops now. As you would expect, they focus on quality, and are really handy to have around the kitchen. I used the mini meringues to make my Oreo meringue dessert - they were just the right size and helped me cut down on time because I didn't have to make and cool them myself. The giant shell-shaped conchiglioni I stuffed with a meaty bolognese sauce, scattered with cheese and baked in the oven (that deserves a post of its own, more on that later). And the chocolate and stem ginger biscuits were amazing - just the right amount of gingery spice with little jewel-like pieces of ginger and then dipped in plain chocolate. Lovely with a cuppa.
And one lucky Comfort Bites reader can win a hamper packed full of these Extra Special goodies. The hamper includes: 

Extra Special all butter pastry cases
Extra Special artisan flat breads
Extra Special plain chocolate
Extra Special mini meringues
