A RED CARPET EVENT

In Support of Great Ormond Street Hospital

Sylvia Anderson has left a huge legacy with her pioneering work as co-creator of Thunderbirds with her most iconic character Lady Penelope, and was always at the cutting edge of ground breaking television. Sylvia’s daughter Dee Anderson, in collaboration with Industry Professionals, has created the Sylvia Anderson Awards to be presented to emerging writers, musicians, film makers and animators at a high profile Celebrity Evening event to be held at Pinewood Studios on 1st December 2018.

There will be a Champagne Reception, followed by a sumptuous 3-course dinner with wine, amazing entertainment, the presentation of the Sylvia Anderson Awards (celebrating emerging talent), plus in support of GOSH, we have a “What Money Can’t Buy” Auction & Luxury Raffle.

The Ball is an exclusive black-tie event, in aid of a wonderful cause – Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. It will be great for entertaining and should be a fabulous evening – guests get to walk the red carpet and mingle with our Celebrity Guests.

All this, plus dancing into the early hours – so plenty to look forward to!

Celebrities from the world of TV & Film will be in attendance ranging from Eastenders to Game of Thrones, along with various people who worked with Sylvia over the years on the productions inc voice artists & puppeteers.

In addition to the award ceremony, there will be a ‘what money can’t buy’ auction to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital, famous for their arduous work in revolutionary treatments for children suffering with serious diseases.

Eating the Unknown – A Gastronomic Journey through Europe

Eating the Unknown – A Gastronomic Journey through Europe

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

We could sit here all day and wax lyrical about the benefits of an authentic French onion soup for the soul, a Neapolitan pizza to lift your spirits, or a sunny day in Portugal bookended by a golden and flaky custard tart…well, just because they are delicious and addictive. But the chances are you have been there, done that and bought the recipe book. So today we would like to shine the spotlight on some major culinary contenders around Europe’s dining table that we feel may have been slightly overlooked. We’ve taken an example from Northern, Central and Southern Europe, so gastronomic adventurers, take note – Your tastebuds are in for a treat.

Starting at the Finnish

The Finnish menu is a seasonal celebration of locally sourced ingredients. Expect warming soups, potatoes and salmon with lashings of dill, pies stuffed with bright berries and the stalwart of the Scandinavian cuisine that is rye bread slathered with butter and taken morning, noon or night.

There are also unexpected specialties that set the Finns apart from their neighbours. Halloumi-like Leipäjuusto, for example, is baked over an open fire and eaten with cloudberry jam, producing a satisfying squeak. Christmas lovers may want to avoid Poronkäristys, but vitamin-rich and tender sautéed reindeer meat can be found served alongside creamy mashed potato at any time of year. Sorry Rudolph, but it’s absolutely irresistible.

Polish your meal off

The Poles have one of the most comforting, indulgent cuisines and proof of the pudding is in the Pierogi. These plump, pillow-like morsels filled with ground mince and topped with crispy fried onions are practically sacred in Poland. Unlimited to the savoury sphere, Pierogi can even transcend the boundaries of the menu when eaten for dessert with sweet berries and dressed in cream.

Smoked meats and cabbage also feature largely in the typical Polish diet. From Kie?basa and Sauerkraut to Bigos and Go??bki, these ingredients make for very hearty and flavourful fare. Veggies, fear not! There are also plenty of meat-free menu options, including crisp potato pancakes, vegetable soups and a whole host of baked goods.

Love thy neighbour

Slovenia’s largely landlocked geographical position means traditional cuisine there has familiar elements shared with Italian, Austrian, Hungarian and Croatian gastronomy. The landscape, which includes mountains, fields and even a small Adriatic coastline, offers an enviable bounty. You’ll find everything from mushroom soup served in a hollowed out bread loaf, to dandelion and egg salad (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it).

Pasta lovers, we’d also like to introduce you to Žlikrofi – dainty dough parcels stuffed with herby meat and doused in rich rabbit or mutton sauce. Meanwhile the Slovenian charcuterie is nothing to be scoffed at: wind-cured Prosciutto (Pršut), sharply pickled turnips (Kisla repa) and a plethora of impressive cheeses grace the table.

Where to stay

The most seasoned food fanatics will know that the best way to get to the heart of a national cuisine is to pack your bags and make the pilgrimage. Whether your Mecca is a particular market, a backstreet restaurant or a vineyard, our number one tip is to book a villa or apartment right in the centre of the action. Our friends at www.novasol.co.uk have over 50,000 holiday homes all across Europe, so you’ll find the perfect base with them for your tasty travels.

As Lady Penelope would say FAB

Win a Delicious Pack of Turmerlicious Latte Blends

Win a Delicious Pack of Turmerlicious Latte Blends

Reading Time: 5 minutes

“As the nights draw in here is your chance to win the full range of Turmerlicious Turmeric latte blends –  a dairy and caffeine-free range of hot drinks made from coconut, a good daily dose of superfood turmeric and a delicate blend of aromatic spices.

Amazing as it is, turmeric is very hard for the body to absorb as it is a fat-soluble spice and needs pepper and heat to break it down (making many supplements ineffective).

Because of this founder Maggie Howell created the Turmerlicious range of turmeric lattes specifically to maximise the absorption of turmeric, so adding one cup to your daily routine is a really effective and delicious way to take turmeric every day.

 Available in four natural flavours – vanilla, ginger, choc and chilli choc.”

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine  – in fact, one of the Sanskrit translation for turmeric is “defender of diseases”. In more recent years it has been found to ease arthritis pain, aid the liver in detoxifying, boost blood circulation, heal and soothe the digestive tract, reduce the pain and fever associated with illness, and even help prevent ulcers due to the antiseptic properties.

It truly is a superfood and yet for most people, it has only ever been used as a flavouring or colouring in savoury dishes. However, more and more people have started adding turmeric to their daily diet from both a medicinal as well as preventative perspective. Amazing as it is though, turmeric is very hard for the body to absorb as it is a fat-soluble spice and needs pepper and heat to break it down (making many supplements ineffective).

A particularly easy and delicious way to take turmeric effectively is as a hot drink, based on the age-old “golden milk”. The popularity of turmeric lattes in trendy cafes is growing at a significant rate, however making it yourself can be time-consuming, tricky to get right in terms flavour – turmeric is a bitter, dry tasting spice and can stain everything in your kitchen a sunny yellow.

That is exactly what Mum of 5 Maggie Howell found when making turmeric lattes at home as she wanted to get a good daily dose of turmeric into her diet. So after a year of experimenting with different blends and spices, she came up with a range of four flavours that complemented turmeric and coconut perfectly. In addition she found a way to make them completely instant – a huge time saver in a busy household!

She launched Turmerlicious last year and now her range of turmeric latte blends are available across the UK in Holland & Barrett, over 500 independent health food stores and of course from Amazon

Turmerlicious ticks so many boxes as it is free from caffeine (apart from a small amount of caffeine in the chocolate versions), preservatives, artificial flavours, refined sugar, GMO products, nuts, eggs and gluten. It is also dairy free which make its suitable for vegans, those following a Paleo diet and anyone with a lactose intolerance.

And it is delicious! As one customer said “it is like a hug in a mug!” a really comforting hot drink which is a great healthy replacement for tea, coffee and hot chocolate, simply add 3 heaped teaspoons to a mug, pour in boiling water, stir well and enjoy!

Her is you chance to win 1 of 3 sets of mixed bundles (4x 200g packs of choco, vanilla, ginger and chilli choc) RRP £26

CLEANING UP THE GRIME

CLEANING UP THE GRIME

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

It was only a decade ago I was living in Shorditch, the trendy oasis of the Galaxy, obsessed with ‘grime’ and ‘cleaning up’ as a PR consultant with all of the media startups in the area.

Now, ten years, one marriage and three kids later, I am still OCD about grime, mostly created by my two year old twins, and cleaning up the home on a daily basis.

I am also reluctant to admit that I enjoy it as much as I did back in the day, and am having fun on a daily basis with my very hectic lifestyle.  The only difference being the location which has been switched to Surbiton, and the heady PR activities which have been replaced by sleepless nights and grimy facades – so no great change there.

So how have I made such a drastic life change without regret.  I am enviably with the love of my life and have three gorgeous kids, who challenge me every day so I am never bored and always on my toes.

I have also found a new hobby and share the benefits with the rest of the family.  I have also discovered a charismatic new ‘performer’ Sophie Hitchcliffe, whose hilarious entertaining blogs are filled with ideas, and advice inspiration on cleaning.

Sophie Hinchcliffe is a char lady from Essex who is known as Mrs Hinch, and 28 year old Sophie’s tips have gained her over 300k followers on Instagram, who she refers to as her Hinch Army.

Sophie shares frequent photos on social media of her house, sharing interior design advice as well as cleaning hacks.

This excellent entertainer names all of her products as if they are characters and you can feel her passion as she embarks on projects ranging from slimy frying pans to blocked plugholes, saying that if you have a clean home you will have a happy clear head.  All of which is perfectly true.

You may feel that I have completely ‘lost the plot’ as a switched on educated female, but I am the first to admit that I have discovered the therapeutic benefits of ‘cleaning up’ as well as playing with my kids, spending quality time with my partner and meeting up with friends.  In other words I have achieved the perfect work/lifestyle balance, without losing out on some precious ‘me’ time, close at hand to the kitchen sink.
