asparagus

Asparagus was renowned as an aphrodisiac in times of olde. Low in sodium with no fat and good for your ticker, it sure beats the heck out of an oyster. This old wive's tale may hold some truth, asparagus is full of B6 which is proven to boost your fun drive, but beware of getting on the cook's tips.

cos

Cos lettuce is bitter to some, rabbit food to others but due to its depiction in egyptian tombs, we know that lettuce has been grown as a food stuff for over 6500 years. So, why should the cos give a toss what you think?

fig

Figs pre-date wheat as a farmed produce. In italy and spain, giving someone the fig is a sign you may have touched a raw nerve, so, take a leaf out of the fig’s long history and tell your culinary critics where to go.

raspberry

Trifles or fools are desserts in olde english – the trivial tit-bit at the end of your meal, add a raspberry and it’s anything but. Raspberries contain ellagic acid – a compound that prevents cancer – and an impressive amount of fibre for its size. The raspberry is not to be taken for granted. It’s no fool.

rhubarb

Rhubarb’s blah, blah, blah connotation has come about because the word contains no sharp or recognisable phonemes (an indivisible unit of sound). When spoken by a group it produces an indistinct background noise, hence rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb. So, when someone's talking nonsence about your cooking, hand them a mug of tea with Blah Bloody Blah.

lemon

Lemons were once used to cure scurvy, a disease that caused bleeding gums. being rude about someone’s cooking may the the same effect. Go suck!

artichoke

Artichokes used to be reserved for men because of their “lifting” properties – way before the modern-day blue pill. In many cultures aphrodisiacs were banned for women. Well, Mrs tulip says, kiss my artichoke!

peas

Peas are seeds in a pod and are in fact a fruit. Loaded with vitamins – B1, C and B6 as well as copper, phosphorous, folate, zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium, they’re not to be undersetimated, so give peas a chance.

farm animals

tulip tip ® wall plaques are designed to emulate old, weathered enamel signs. Mrs tulip is fed up of being told she should be skinny and look thirty years her junior, so mutton is better than lamb, fat hens do make good soup, one should never buy a skinny pig and happy cows, with plenty of marbling, do make great steak. Fun, original, design-led, everday items.
