A taboo word in the kitchen, cling film has become a product that many of us conscious cooks do not want to be associated with. A once handy product, there was little that you would not wrap with clingfilm! However, times are changing and trends have developed and this plastic, single-use product is no longer a product of choice. So are there alternatives to cling film?
