The Savoury Recipes You Loved This Year

We've rounded up your favourite savoury recipes of 2016.

As the year draws to a close, many of us find ourselves in a reflective mood. We’re looking back at what we did, where we went, what went well and what didn’t. Here at Sporteluxe, we’re in the same boat. We like to reflect back on what rocked your world this year, so we can do more of the same (plus totally new, awesome stuff) in 2017. We’ve already looked back at the wellness stories and yoga workouts you couldn’t get enough this year. Now, it’s time to round up your favourite savoury recipes of 2016.
