Westvleteren 12 and Westvleteren 8 are extremely rare beers, wanted by about every beer enthusiast in the world. Now people from around the world are able to buy Westvleteren 12 and try it, previously the beer was only to be sold from their brewery. Until now!

So today, all people can order online from now on, visit us athttp://www.westvleterenbeers.com and keep in mind that the number of beers is still limited, but customers can enjoy the convenience of not going to Belgium and order the beer from home. The Trappist monks make two other kinds of beer: Westvleteren blond beer and Westvleteren 8. Both are excellent and can be also bought online.

Winecrasher.com launches revolutionary best value wine club

Napa, California, 2016-May-19 — /EPR Food & Beverage News/ — Winecrasher.com, announced today the launch of a new wine club based on the company’s unique “Crash Pricing” concept – which guarantees the best prices for critically rated wine.

winecrasher

In Winecrasher’s innovative concept, which was inspired by Hotwire/Priceline, the customer is shown all the info about a wine (rating, varietal, region and vintage) but the company only reveals the wine label and name of the winery after the purchase is complete. This discrete discount model allows Winecrasher to offer the greatest discounts on wines while protecting winery brands.

Winecrasher is extending this concept to it’s newly launched wine clubs which will offer customers a monthly subscription, for either three (3) or six (6) bottles of critically rated wines.

Each of the wine clubs is guaranteed the following:

  • The best price in the US market for each bottle
  • Each bottle sold has been critically rated by either Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Antonio
    Galloni’s Vinous or Burghound.
  • Free California shipping and only $9.99 shipping nationwide (excluding UT, MA, PA, AK and HI)
  • Super easy cancellation – just send an email

In addition, Winecrasher will offer a premium experience through its personally tailored wine club for anyone who wants to customize their selection.

“We wanted to create a club where people can try new wines, without preconceived notions, while learning about new regions. With the guarantee that they’re getting the best value,” said Winecrasher’s Co-Founder and Wine Director, Nancy O’Connell. Nancy, who will manage and select the club’s wine portfolio, also mentioned that “While we choose the wines based on our own impressions, sourcing only critically rated wine allows the added assurance that the customers receive a product of verifiable quality.”

“This wine club concept ties in to the whole philosophy of Winecrasher,” said Winecrasher’s Founder, Niv Nissenson. “We feel that people are tired of wine clubs that market obscure wines or put high markups on the bottles sold. We think that wine consumers are equally dissatisfied with clubs that make it very easy to join but difficult to unsubscribe. At Winecrasher we aspire to create a wine club where the best price is guaranteed, every wine is rated and it’s very easy to cancel”

Winecrasher’s wine club can be accessed in the following link:http://www.winecrasher.com/Wine- Club_c_61.html

Smart mini beer brewing appliance is going to change the brewing game

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Apr-03 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — The ArtBrew beer brewing control system – designed, developed and marketed by an international-based team comprised of the world’s top engineers and brewers – has been officially launched at Kickstarter as an “inspired innovation” that will “change the concept of beer brewing.”

As of this writing, ArtBrew’s Kickstarter campaign has already got full funded within two days of being activated. And it will arrive at 200% of target very soon.

Boasting a premium structure that keeps both brewing and fermentation in one chassis and which automates nearly the entire process, the ArtBrew is the world’s newest, smartest beer brewing appliance featuring a unique mobile app that provides users another way to control the machine beyond the button on the 400 x 240 pixels LCD screen, either nearby or remotely with a Wi-Fi connection. This also allows for status tracking and access to a massive database containing a plethora of recipes from across the world.

Through ArtBrew’s innovative app, users can customize their own recipes while taking advantage of the social networking platform to obtain and share recipes they may not have had previous access to.

“The ArtBrew solution is going to change the brewing game not only because of its ability to keep the brewing tank and fermentation tank in one common chassis – one that boasts excellent structural design – but also because it’s a formidable control system with a myriad of sensors to control and provide feedback on the different processes,” states an ArtBrew spokesperson.

“What’s more, in this day and age of worldwide social networking, the ArtBrew app provides users an alternative control method for the machine, coming fully loaded with a recipe library that contains hundreds of recipes collected from the world’s most famous breweries, access to brewing process tracking with a real time curve, market access to all ArtBrew products and accessories, user notification of machine status and much more. To say the ArtBrew product is a forward-thinking, easy-to-use brewing solution is something of an understatement.”

A six-liter MiniKeg can represent a serving keg that the user simply leaves inside the machine to access the beer, or can work as a fermentation keg which the user can store in a refrigerator for fermentation purposes. Further, ArtBrew recipes are sorted in various categories, providing the user an easy way of finding the desired recipes while allowing the search process to commence by keyword or name. Users can create their own recipes and can also change or modify the original ArtBrew recipes to create a new one, free to then use/brew them or share with the public.

A Sweet Spin on Moonshine for Bloomery Distillery

Charles Town, West Virgina, July 03, 2015 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — FlipKey.com, the vacation rental company of leading travel site TripAdvisor has published its list of the 50 most loved and most talked about food and drink tours in almost every state across the U.S. And in West Virginia, the winner is Bloomery Plantation Distillery.

Capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries and the nostalgia for moonshine, Bloomery’s SweetShine line of naturally flavored liqueurs are handcrafted from farm-fresh roots, fruits, and nuts.

The freshness of the line’s ingredients cannot be questioned, with all agricultural ingredients grown at the distillery’s own farm, local neighboring farms or other small American farms.

To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have toured the distillery to savor an artisanal cocktail – whether it’s the ‘moonshine milkshake’ innovatively called Cremma Lemma or the chilled Chocolate Raspberry (a shot in hot coffee is bound to change one’s morning routine). With more than twenty-one international awards and too many cocktail enthusiast praises to count, the company is doing its part to take the restaurant, bar and hospitality industries to tasty new levels.

The entire process of creating the SweetShine line is handcrafted – from the hand-zesting of every lemon to the hand-chopping of the ginger to the hand-making of syrups to the actual handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Company founder Linda Losey claims with pride, “Consumers like a little bit of the unusual and appreciate our whimsical approach, but quality and taste are paramount – this is why we grow our own Italian lemons and Hawaiian ginger as well as our own black walnuts, pumpkins, and raspberries. Losey goes on to say, “Our fans trust our brand…and are comfortable and confident that when they grab a bottle of SweetShine, they can add it to any of their current cocktails and they’ll create a fresher, higher quality, premium cocktail that was a breeze to make.”

Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states and is on the fast track to further expand distribution.

About Bloomery SweetShine
Since opening as a mini-distillery in the agri-tourism industry in September of 2011, Bloomery Plantation Distillery has been capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries, the nostalgia for the prohibition-era and the explosion of fruit flavored liqueurs through its hand-crafted, award-winning SweetShine line. With a sweet spin on moonshine, the company makes moonshine drinkable through its award-winning liqueurs that are hand-crafted from farm-fresh fruits, roots and nuts. To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have visited the distillery to enjoy a SweetShine artisanal cocktail of their own amid affable company.

The distillery boasts a wildly unique, imaginative and fiercely dedicated staff led by company founder, Linda Losey. For staffers, SweetShine represents far more than just a product line but rather is regarded as a foundational philosophy—an adventurous and even risk-taking way of doing things…a spirited and amusing outlook on life. This viewpoint guides everything the company creates, and Bloomery’s passionate one-of-a-kind team attracts customers from around the world who believe in, connect with and trust the SweetShine brand.

The distillery, located two miles east of Charles Town, West Virginia, is situated on a 12-acre parcel of land where they grow farm-fresh ingredients used in the elixirs, including ginger, raspberries and lemons, among others. Putting their unique spin on the process of making moonshine, Bloomery’s all natural SweetShine is crafted using time-honored recipes with 190 proof ‘shine, pure cane sugar and garden-grown ingredients. The entire process is hand-crafted—from the hand-zesting of every lemon, to the hand-chopping of the ginger, to the hand picking of raspberries, to the hand-making of its syrups, to the handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Each batch is individually proofed; the finished liqueurs range from 40° to 70°. Truly handcrafted. And it shows. Just a touch of SweetShine quickly creates a classic cocktail with a twist—goodbye to boring unadventurous drinking! Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states, and continues to expand distribution nationally.

Raw Milk Bill Scheduled for Vote in the Texas House

Austin, TX, May 05, 2015 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — Texas lawmakers will have the opportunity to make it easier for consumers to buy raw milk on Thursday, when House Bill 91 is scheduled to come up for a vote on the floor of the House.

The bill, which was approved by the Public Health Committee, will loosen the current regulations that only allow raw milk to be sold on the farm by allowing dairy farmers to sell raw milk at farmers’ markets and to make delivery arrangements with their customers.

“Currently, Texans have to travel to a licensed dairy to buy raw milk,” explained Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance Executive Director Judith McGeary. “This bill reduces costs and hassle for consumers, while allowing farmers a fair opportunity to market their products,” she continued.

Kris Errickson, whose 13-year old daughter testified to the Public Health Committee in favor of the bill, explained the impact raw milk had on her daughter’s health. “My daughter suffered from food allergies and eczema for much of her life. Her condition changed for the better after implementing a strict diet including raw milk. However, for the past two years my husband battled terminal brain cancer. Driving hours for raw milk was too burdensome, so she had no milk during this time, and her eczema recently returned.”

Texas State Rep. Dan Flynn(R-Canton), the bill’s sponsor, has called it a “free-enterprise” bill. “If you have a legal product, it seems like you should be able to sell it at a farmer’s market,” Flynn told committee members at a hearing on April 21.

Mark Hutchins, a second generation raw milk dairy farmer from Greenville who also testified at the hearing, encouraged the full House to pass the legislation. “The House should affirm that licensed, regulated and legal raw milk is a safe product that ought to be more readily available to interested consumers.

“As a raw milk producer myself, I know how hard raw milk farmers work to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of their loyal customers, and how much it means to customers to be able to access this product. I urge the Texas House to quickly pass HB 91 and support the freedom of farmers and consumers to choose what is best for their families’ health and safety.”

A fact sheet on HB 91 is available at: http://farmandranchfreedom.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Fact-sheet-HB91-floor-vote.pdf

SEREbox.com, the original monthly subscription box with an emergency preparedness theme, celebrates its successful 1st year anniversary on February 20th, 2015

Atlanta, GA, February 02, 2015 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — SEREbox.com was the first monthly subscription box service geared towards emergency preparedness and survival gear planning available on the internet or elsewhere. SEREbox.com combines a comprehensive and innovative line of emergency planning products with an educational aspect that cannot be found anywhere else. Each month has a theme (ie: Fire, Water, Food, Protection, and etc.). They strive to find unique items that are quality made in the USA, highly functional, and extremely durable. Food is always the most popular and important item to have in a cache of emergency supplies. Therefore, special attention was paid to make sure the entire long term shelf stable food line is the best in the business. They succeeded. Their food line is unmatched because it is great tasting, fast cooking, low in sodium, and highly nutritious. Even gluten free and other specialty diet options are available to all customers.

The website has proven to be of tremendous value to families and individuals on their search for independence and freedom from reliance on other people or the government in case of any emergency or survival scenario. “This is a cutting edge Internet site far superior to anything in the marketplace,” said Ryan Bowersox, Co-Founder of SEREbox.com. “We have received a humbling amount of compliments on the concept and product itself. We expect tremendous sales growth in year two through our newly designed, convenient, and user-friendly website.”

“The response from all our customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Companies talk all the time about customer service and it seems to be just lip service. Customer service is a lost art. We really strive to make each customer happy. We have never put turning a profit ahead of doing the right thing for our customers. We have countless testimonials on our website about how we are succeeding in all our goals. We are just so pleased that our little idea has been of such use to people, and it’s so exciting. We can’t wait to see what year two and beyond brings.” said Scott Setter, President.

SEREbox.com has grown by leaps and bounds because of the great value it offers its customers. The company has a very intelligent and hardworking team of people in the greater Atlanta area. The concept and website have been featured in many publications, most notably the Winter 2014 version of “Survivor’s Edge” Magazine. The company’s website at www.SEREbox.com contains additional information on the program and how to sign up.

http://www.realworldsurvivor.com/2014/12/03/serebox-sends-monthly-survival-kits-home/#3-sample-boxes

In the Spring of 2015, SEREbox.com will launch its new product called “The Mini.” It is designed for all those subscribers who cannot afford $39 per month and need a more economical option. It will have free shipping as well.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR FOOD AND BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

First of Kind Sports Drink – Break Through for Athletes

“A beverage that was developed with “natural” ingredients accelerates an athlete’s recovery from workouts, practices and competitions”

 

Ridgefield, WA, October 28, 2014 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 2MAC, created by an athlete 60 years young, uses natural ingredients to restore the energy and hydration generators depleted during high intensity competition or practice. The greatest chapter in this story may be that there are no chemicals required to achieve this result.

“We were tired of using sugary, salty, artificial tasting drinks as a recovery beverage after a workout. As athletes we wanted something that really did taste great, contained no artificial additives and restored the amino acids, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals we burned while exercising. The drinks on the market were missing the big picture as they were too narrowly focused on remedies for one or two segments of this equation. It was very frustrating,” said development director, Mike McDaniel at 2MAC’s Vancouver, Washington headquarters.

The body does not restore these elements on its own, they must be consumed. The longer a person waits to recharge their body the longer their recovery time will be. Waiting to resupply lost nutrients reduces the benefits from a workout or extends the recovery time from an event. While consuming water or a high sugar and salt sports drink will cure a roaring thirst, that alone will not remedy the more important issue of depleted nutrients and body reserves. These elements must be replaced to rejuvenate muscles and energy.

“2MAC’s formulas, which are characterized by a great taste profile, are designed to be absorbed rapidly into an athlete’s system, reduce muscle inflammation and oxidative stress while minimizing insulin release. To effectively reverse the effects of physical stress, 2MAC should consumed during, or within 30 minutes of ending, the exercise period,” McDaniel stated.

Introducing 2MAC to a sports drink market that is defined by long entrenched brands is a challenging task. That is why 2MAC has decided to seek funding in two stages through the Kickstarter process which features an all or nothing model. Stage one is designed to verify taste demographics while a stage two Kickstarter campaign will be utilized to launch a nationwide rollout of the product. Be sure to follow us at the following Kickstarter link. Those who pledge will be among the first to experience the benefits of this natural solution to dehydration and nutrient loss.

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety Invents Oven Mitt That Allows Dexterity and Promotes Safety

Santa Clarita, CA, September 17, 2014, Nearly 350,000 people annually are victims of scalding or burns from accidents that occur while cooking, either on the grill or in the kitchen. Most involve saucepans or tea kettles. Many could be eliminated by using a proper padding device on the hands when touching pans that have been heated. Many hot pads just aren’t made for high temperatures or kitchen dexterity when cooking. This can create more safety issues and actually create harm where they were supposed to bring assurance. One California man, Marcelo Garcia, has created a different kind of oven mitt built for safety and dexterity and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this kitchen must have to the cooking masses that work well for anyone working in the kitchen, from beginner to Iron Chef.

Ulta-Mitt, as it is called, is a 3-Finger mitt constructed from neoprene that is waterproof and heat resistant making it great for indoor or outdoor use. The 3-Finger design allows for more dexterity than an ordinary oven mitt, offering both style and function with users able to have the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with small gadgets required while cooking in the kitchen. The neoprene material is also non-slip for a better grip.

This must have kitchen item also comes with a matching neoprene hot pad, which can double as a jar opener for those hard to open lids.

Perks for sponsors include sets of the gloves at manufacturer’s discounts and ahead of their proposed scheduled appearance in stores appearance and for some lucky investors, a complete Healthy eating wooden handle wok cooking set. For those that can’t give, the inventor hopes they will share this story to make the campaign viral through social media.

Nutrit Meal Replacement To Start Crowdsource Campaign

We are pleased to announce that Nutrit Meal Replacement is starting a Crowdtilt Campaign for its initial production run.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Find out more at our site; www.nutritmr.com and get involved at:https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/nutrit.
Only with your help can we bring this truly novel product to market and the world.

LondonTown.com: Newly opened Shangri La Hotel offers tempting Afternoon Tea in the Ting Lounge

The much anticipated Shangri La Hotel, London has opened its doors but you don’t have to stay in one of their elegant hotel rooms to enjoy the breath-taking views. One of two restaurants in the hotel, Ting offers visitors a chance to enjoy afternoon tea in London with a 360-degree view of the city. Like the hotel’s rooms, Ting fuses Shangri-La’s Asian heritage with the iconic modernity of London’s Shard.

Situated on the 35 th floor of Western Europe’s tallest building, Ting derives its name from the Chinese word for living room and offers diners a modern, stylish setting in which to enjoy afternoon tea. Guests can choose between two menu options: Classic British or an Asian-inspired alternative. The Classic menu features delicacies such as Chocolate Temptation, a rich sponge with red fruit tea-infused chocolate ganache and raspberry compote served with soft chocolate cream; and the Passion Fruit, which combines passion fruit cream, tropical fruits with mango coulis and exotic fruit marshmallow. The sandwich selection is equally enticing, with London smoked salmon and cream cheese on whole meal bread and roasted chicken and grain mustard on mixed seed bread among the options. In contrast, the Asian menu reflects the hotel’s cultural traditions with treats like a Chinese-Style Egg Custard Tart, Steamed Prawn Dumpling and Roasted Duck Pancake. Of course, no afternoon tea is complete without scones and both menus include classic as well as chamomile options with traditional Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam.

The Classic Afternoon Tea is £49 or £57 with a glass of champagne and the Asian Afternoon Tea is £54 or £62 with a glass of champagne. Visit LondonTown.com for more information on the Shangri La.

How Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire Beats Buying for Events

If you are planning an event of any kind, from a birthday party or a wedding to a large, international corporate event you need the tools to do the job right. This means you need a suitable venue and so much more. You need food, furniture and catering equipment.

But the big question is do you hire equipment or buy it outright?
With an unlimited budget and lots of future events in the books, you might be tempted to buy. But there are a number of ways that catering equipment and furniture hire can prove a more worthwhile alternative.

We’ve listed 8 of the best:

Reasons for Hiring Catering Equipment & Furniture

1. Affordable
If you only require catering or kitchen equipment for a short period, hire specialists like Allens Hire in London can offer an attractive price which stacks up favourably against the purchase price of the same things.

2. Storage
Buy catering equipment or furniture and you’ll be burdened with looking after it when it isn’t in use. With hire furniture, tableware and more, you don’t have to worry about these items until they are required to ensure your event is a success.

3. Transport
At Allens Hire, a fleet of drivers are ready and waiting to deliver catering equipment, such as tableware, tables, chairs and kitchen equipment , to your door; no matter where in London or the South of England your event is to be held. This is one of the major benefits of hiring for an event. We bring the equipment to you.

4. Maintenance
You might wish to purchase your own outdoor BBQ, garden heaters or chest freezers but when disaster strikes you could be sorry you didn’t simply hire them out. We maintain our inventory of gas and electrical products so there is a good range to choose from. We never distribute an item without first performing a series of checks.

5. Safety
When gas appliances are involved, health and safety should be a high priority. At Allens Hire we are gas certified and PAT trained to ensure that our equipment is safe to use when it leaves the premises and each appliance carries Safety and Operating instructions to ensure that you have the best advice whilst appliances are in your care.

6. Cleanup
Once your event draws to a close, and the fun is over, the hard work truly begins. At least that’s the case if you’ve used your own tableware and it’s your job to clean up. When you hire catering equipment from Allens Hire, we offer to do the cleaning for you, so you can return the equipment dirty for us to do the job for you and alleviate you of this task at least!

7. Trends
Fashion is constantly changing. But that doesn’t simply mean that clothing changes. The popular ways to decorate an event change too. When you buy furniture, tablecloths and more, their so-called ‘trendiness’ may diminish over time. But a hire company like Allens remains at the forefront of the event planning industry, providing insight into trends of the moment and has a carefully chosen portfolio to theme your event in your chosen colours. Every time you host a party, sporting or corporate event you will have access an excellent range of equipment for the job; and the looking good to boot.

8. Tailored
No two events are ever truly the same and so the best catering equipment and furniture projects are truly bespoke. That’s what you get when you hire catering equipment for each individual event. You can request exactly the things you need to cater a birthday party of less than 50 people or a corporate event for hundreds. Allens Hire advisors can work closely with every client to ensure that they receive a tailored project that is perfect for their needs.

Call Allens Hire on 0208 574 9600 (London) or 023 8065 2316 (South Coast) to talk about your catering equipment hire, event hire and furniture hire needs. Whether you are arranging an event in a park, a palace or a party at home we can provide everything that you might need to ensure that the event is enjoyed by all.

LondonTown.com: ‘Pleased to meet Q’ says Camden as London’s latest BBQ joint fires up grills

Set to open in late February, Q Grill is the latest example of London’s love affair with all things grilled, smoked and American. The craze for down-home barbecue style cuisine seems set to continue into 2014 and Q Grill looks like a very good reason not to put down the BBQ sauce just yet.

Q Grill arrives in Camden (Chalk Farm Road to be precise) courtesy of esteemed restaurateur Des McDonald (formerly of Caprice Holdings), hot on the heels of his successful Fish and Chips venture in Islington last year. He describes his foray into the well-populated BBQ dining scene as coupling the ‘sweet tasting BBQ flavours of a traditional Memphis smokehouse with our own unique approach’.

Heading up the kitchen will be Phil Eagle, a fellow alumnus of Le Caprice whose CV also boasts a spell as Head Chef at Hix. He will oversee a menu that won’t be short of finger lickin’ meaty offerings like Josper grilled steaks and burgers, pecan roasted chicken, kielbas a hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches. This carnival for carnivores will be offset by ‘raw bar’ classics like scallop ceviche and citrus sea bass. Expect the drinks list to continue the down-home southern stylings with a wide selection of American bourbons and whiskeys.

Q Grill heads an exciting list of London restaurant openings over the next couple months as the capital’s dining scene kicks off 2014 in fine style. Keep abreast of all the latest foodie must visits at LondonTown.com where you’ll find comprehensive listings covering all the latest London restaurants, book tables and find nearby attractions.

The recipes for both the spices and sauces remain a closely guarded company secret.

The company is now poised to fulfil its ambitious expansion plans throughout the GCC, Unites Kingdom, Sweden, Pakistan and beyond.

The spokesperson continued ‘Such has been the overwhelming demand for our exclusive business offer that we now have agreements in place for in excess of 200 store openings across the GCC and Pakistan. We will be announcing details of our master licence agreements in the near future’.

All Doner Kebab stores have the support of the world’s largest Doner Kebab production operation “Kaplan Doner” based in Germany together with its unrivalled industry knowledge acquired through decades of experience. Since the launch of the brand in Berlin in 1989, Doner Kebab has been committed to perfecting its unique blend of traditional spices and innovative cooking processes that go into producing its healthy alternative Doner Kebabs.
