New video series for Beach Hut Cook

New: Mini Movie Series

I now make a weekly mini movie every Saturday on Instagram which we call Beach Shorts in our house!  These mini movies are no more than a minute long, sometimes shorter and feature ultra easy recipes that don’t need a recipe blog post.  I then feature them sometime afterwards on my YouTube channel so that everyone can see them. 

I love making these mini movies as they are so easy to film and we always eat them straightaway!  No talking to the camera, no recipe to work out just a putting-together of ingredients.  Perfect for beach hut life and picnic walks.  

I will still be doing the longer YouTube videos which are I love doing but these mini movies are more for those recipes that are too simple to call cooking!  

Here’s my Mini Movie playlist and if you wanted to subscribe to my YouTube channel that would be lovely. Otherwise they are weekly on my Instagram feed (see in column to the right). 

Plus you get to see lots of beach views and a taste of beach hut life.  Let me know if there are any recipes you want me to include.  There’s got to be a cocktail video to make, surely?!

    Such a lovely idea for a mini-series, I like things which are branded as quick and easy as that’s my kind of cooking x

      Thanks you Rhian. I so love doing these. Although the one posted today on my Instagram feed was filmed by our youngest son. I love how he captures colour and sunshine, Elinor x

    Love the idea of a mini movie for recipes that don’t require a full on blog post – sometimes it’s just easier to watch something and pause it as you’re cooking along! x

    What a fab idea and you’re right you can still share great content in short clips for recipes that don’t quite warrant a full video without others missing out!

  • Reply Ana De- Jesus 30th May 2017 at 11:03 pm

    Strawberries are my favourite fruit so I like anything with them in! The strawberry shortcake looks good x
