  1. At the back of the sideboard when I was growing up there was a strange green bottle with a densely printed lable with intriguing images, names and phrases …It came out very occasionally, usually at Christmas or my parents parties and seemed glamourous, mysterious and exciting … it was one of the things in my childhood that sparked my interest in herbs and spices … A bottle of Angostura Bitters Now, following in the footsteps of Gin, “Bitters” are enjoying renewed interest, both as a Cocktail ingredient and for digestive health … but what are they and where do they come from?

  2. December 31st , pontificating on the year gone by and looking forward to the new one, I found myself, like so many others with the image of that dead baby whale seared on my brain and resolved to go PLASTIC FREE … I’m already massively conscious of plastic waste, living on a boat makes you think hard about waste disposal … and also I have done the Beach Clean-Up (in some pretty remote places) and been stunned by the amount of plastic that washes up … so how hard could it be?
