Got a roll of foil and parchment together as a special one time at Aldi and find it really useful and better than using both but have never seen it since and haven't found it anywhere else - does anyone know of anywhere that stocks it? many thanks

I think Lakeland sell it.

Sainsburys! We have it. Also have foil, and parchment separately.

I am intrigued - why is it good? Surely you need one or the other, usually?

I've tried the Lakeland one and also the one that is sold at Tesco. The Lakeland one is much nicer (but also more expensive)

it's great for baking fish and wrapping cooked ham joints, amongst other things

better than foil or parchment alone

It has the non-stickness of parchment and the strength and stay-put properties of foil. So if you wrap fish it stays done up, if you put it in a tin for a traybake it moulds to the shape of the tin and doesn't ping out while you put the mix in etc.

yes it is better than separate foil & parchment - it is thicker and does hold its shape well. Sometimes foil or parchment alone is ok but for some things I do find the combined roll superior eg for meat. Had a look on Waitrose website just now and couldn't see it, nor on Sainsburys and have looked in both shops previously.
As an aside I find the non-stick foil useless and not non-stick.

Not seen it before so had a google to look and Wilko do it too although not sure it's much difference in price to Lakeland as they are smaller rolls

I bought it by accident from Ocado, it was handy but I've not bought it again. Easy to line cake tins.
