Sharing food together is great for both our social and mental wellbeing and as we all know, nothing brings people together like delicious food!

This ‘share-style’ of serving the food is designed to be served at the centre of the table surrounded by hungry, happy bodies. 

Making your own satay sauce is so easy – you will wonder why you ever bought a pre-made sauce again. 

Made with natural peanut butter, this sauce is rich in polyphenols which have been found to increase blood flow to the brain, improving cognition and may even help regulate mood.

Talk about a good mood food!
