Kenya Elections
Kenya has just concluded its General Election in August, 2017. The tourism industry is set to compensate in the coming months from setback of negative reporting especially from international media channels. In some instances this is not the true state on the ground and only affects some areas cluster and NOT the whole country. Most tourist visited areas are not affected. We urge travelers to seek clarification from credible sources of the Kenya Foreign Missions in their Home country or Ministry of Foreign affairs of Kenya. However, we are optimistic that the work done in the past by Hon. Najib Balala and his teams all over the world will not decrease but increase in the coming months and years.

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.

Legendary Spanish restaurant elBulli goes on display at London’s Somerset House

For many of us ‘elBulli: Ferran Adrià and The Art of Food’, a new exhibition opening at the Embankment Galleries of London’s Somerset House on Friday 5th July 2013, will be as close to eating at the famous Spanish restaurant, its 50-course tasting menus, and its distinctive brand of molecular gastronomy as we will get – especially since it closed its doors in 2011.

The retrospective at the Embankment Galleries, Somerset House, gives visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Adrià’s unique cuisine. Chefs who worked at the restaurant under Adrià’s leadership included Heston Blumenthal whose restaurant at London restaurant, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge ranks among the most prestigious London restaurants.

The multimedia exhibition at Somerset House offers an insight into the research behind each dish, revealed through handwritten notes and sketches. Also on display are plasticine models which were made for all the dishes – and the elBulli team invented 1,846 of them – used as a means of quality control for colour, portion size and position on the plate.

The London show is a taster of what is next for elBulli – Adrià intends to reopen in 2015 with a foundation to safeguard the legacy of the restaurant and to create Bullipedia, a central resource documenting culinary history and providing research material for chefs around the world.

In addition to the exhibition, which continues until 29th September 2013, there’s the chance to meet the man himself at ‘An Audience with Ferran Adrià’ on the opening night, Friday 5th July 2013, when he will discuss the afterlife of the restaurant, and his ongoing projects. Tickets, at £25, include a complimentary drink, and free entry to the exhibition (which has a standard entry fee of £10) until 9.30pm.

From 10th July onwards visitors can see two Embankment Galleries shows when they book a joint ticket for £12.50 (£10.50 concessions), £6.25 on Mondays (excluding Bank Holidays) which includes entry into ‘elBulli: Ferran Adrià’ and ‘The Art of Food and Miles Aldridge: I Only Want You To Love Me’, a major retrospective on the London-born photographer who has works in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

For more information on all exhibitions and restaurants, new openings and the latest events in London go to LondonTown.com where a wide choice of London hotels to suit all budgets, information on restaurants, bars and cafes as well as all the major attractions is provided.

New ALL BUT GLUTEN™ Baked Goods Launches During Celiac Awareness Month for Canadians on a Gluten-Free Diet

May is Celiac Awareness Month and, just days after first appearing on the shelves of major Canadian retailers, new All But Gluten™ baked goods are receiving rave reviews from consumers following a gluten-free diet. These great tasting products were created by the talented product development team at Weston Bakeries in collaboration with respected nutrition experts and are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility. They meet Health Canada’s gluten-free regulations and are certified by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP). All But Gluten™, is one of the first brands to bear the GFCP mark, making it easier for consumers to identify safe gluten-free products.

All But Gluten™ products are also dairy-free and Kosher.

Safety, taste and nutrition are the three pillars of the All But Gluten™ brand. “The breads, focaccias, pizza shells and muffins are enriched with vitamins and minerals and are a source of fibre,” says Shelley Case, registered dietitian, international celiac disease expert and consulting spokesperson for All But Gluten™. “This is an important feature of All But Gluten™ because many gluten-free products on the market are not enriched and often lower in iron, B vitamins and fibre,” states Case.

Unlike most gluten-free baked goods, All But Gluten™ can be found in the fresh bakery section, not the frozen section of major Canadian retailers. Consumers following a gluten-free diet really miss delicious baked products and now they can stroll down the aisles that were previously off limits. The All But Gluten ™ brand invites consumers to ‘Rekindle your love of baked goods.’

The line includes Whole Grain Loaf, Cinnamon Raisin Loaf, Sliced White Loaf, Roasted Onion Focaccia, Rosemary Focaccia, Plain Pizza Shells, Carrot Raisin Morning Muffins, Mini Brownies and Coconut Macaroons.

MITIE’s Catering Business Rebrands to Gather & Gather

MITIE, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has announced the launch of a new brand for its catering business: Gather & Gather.

Based around a culture of bringing food and people together, the new identity will feature as the new trading name and customer facing identity for MITIE’s catering business.

Gather & Gather focuses on bringing together the best ideas, ingredients, recipes and inspiration from the food industry so that customers can gather together to enjoy them in the workplace.

Two years ago MITIE recruited a new management team to lead its catering business under an entrepreneurial investment model. Since then, the business has more than trebled its turnover through new contract wins and the acquisition of award winning hospitality company Creativevents, making it the fastest growing caterer in the UK and Ireland.

The rebrand to Gather & Gather marks an important step in the evolution of MITIE’s catering business. Developing this ethos has been an integral culture shift for the team behind the business, and now forms a keystone for the brand.

The rebrand combines a new approach to marketing with a learning and development programme for all staff, to understand the values that underpin the name change.

Allister Richards, managing director of Gather & Gather, who has led from the front over the past two years, said:

‘Gather & Gather is a reflection of our business maturing from focusing on what we do, to how we do it. Bringing the ideas and creativity of a dynamic team together, and translating that into delivering great service.

“We’re readdressing the balance between client, customer and caterer, and putting the customer at the heart of what we do, offering something truly different to the marketplace.”

Gather & Gather will roll out throughout the spring from 1 May 2013. Full details of the brand experience will be shared at the launch event on Tuesday 23 April, at The Brewery in central London.

Thames Valley Catering Are Looking After The Dishes

Thames Valley Catering Equipment is able to supply a vast range of catering equipment to all parts of the trade from the restaurant to the large hospital and company kitchen but they also try to seriously look after the smaller user as well. With this in mind Thames Valley Catering is pleased to promote the smaller range of Sammic commercial dishwashers aimed at the smaller cafes and restaurants and other smaller catering establishments. The smaller units sometimes feel a little left out as the large companies seem to have all the best equipment but Thames Valley Catering is able to offer some excellent Sammic dishwashers to satisfy even the smallest requirement.

The company realises that any dishwasher is fairly costly and for the smaller unit that can be very important but the Sammic range is very good in quality and excellent in price. The Sammic SL-23 front loading dishwasher is a very good example of the type of equipment available having a 400 mm x 400 mm square basket, which will turn round a complete load in 180 seconds. This speed of operation will bring savings on crockery purchased and will give an excellent finished product. There are other savings to be made in water usage as the Sammic front loading dishwasher uses an optimal water flow system to reduce usage to a minimum. Sammic have fitted a detergent dosing system for speed of usage and there is an automatic rinse aid built into the dishwasher to ensure a high class finish.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment has a great deal of faith in these units, as they will bring serious savings to the business. The first saving is obviously in operator costs, as the speed of this unit will reduce the dishwashing time to around 20% of the hand washing systems. Secondly there are savings in crockery stocks and also in water and detergent usages. The dishwasher from Sammic will fit in well in a small kitchen as it requires little working space that is often at a premium in the smaller establishments and yet it has a high workload potential for such an establishment.

The Sammic SL-23 front loading machines are also ideal for larger concerns that need an extra machine either as a spare for the disaster day that the larger machines are broken or out of action for major cleaning of the present unit or as a separate unit for certain goods for example glasses or other special delicate products. The units are flexible and the space requirements are small and are ideal as a “Get of jail” card.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment would be delighted to answer any queries or give advice on the best and most appropriate Sammic dishwashers, there are years of experience available in the company and any question posed will almost certainly have been posed before. Sammic dishwashers have been around for some time and the quality and technology is excellent for the conditions they have to work in and the work they have to do and Thames Valley Catering Equipment is pleased to recommend their usage.

The National Trust joins fight to save the great British pud

The National Trust has announced it is backing a Government Minister’s call to save the great British pudding.

After being appointed in a recent cabinet reshuffle, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson urged people to be patriotic with their puddings, choosing traditional British recipes over foreign imports. In an interview with Farmers Weekly, Paterson said: “There is a huge dessert deficit in this country. We have a huge opportunity to replace imported desserts with desserts made here.”

He encouraged diners to swap desserts such as crème brulee and panna cotta, which use imported dairy products, for traditional favourites like apple crumble, treacle tart and spotted dick.

The news comes as the National Trust prepares to launch its autumn pudding campaign, with free puddings throughout the month of October with every lunchtime meal purchased in its selected cafes and restaurants.

The flavour of the month will be great British puddings, all made from seasonal ingredients – a reminder to visitors at National Trust places just how good a British pud can be.

A recent National Trust online poll of people’s favourite autumn puddings found that dishes using seasonal ingredients remained the popular first choice, despite the modern trend of year-round food availability using foreign imports*.

Clive Goudercourt, Development Chef for the National Trust, said: “We pride ourselves on baking our own food using the best of British ingredients, many grown on National Trust estates and farms.

“We hope our delicious, home-cooked puddings will inspire people to choose traditional recipes and celebrate Britain’s best food across the seasons.”

The Jamaica Epicurean Escape – Something For Every Taste And Budget

Jamaica will host its first international food festival,  The Jamaica Epicurean Escape (JEE), November 29 to December 2, 2012 in St Ann. The four-day event will include different types of activities at three different venues targeting different markets.

It will kick off on Thursday 29 with a black tie dinner, an exclusive, high-end affair which will be catered by a team of Jamaica’s best gourmet chefs and will be held at the UDC’s (Urban Development Corporation) Roaring River Great House. Proceeds from this event will finance a foundation which will target the feeding of needy Jamaican children and will also support the development of young and upcoming chefs. On Friday 30, the action will be on Main Street Ocho Rios which will host restaurateurs and street food vendors against a backdrop of music and entertainment. The main event is on Richmond Estate in Priory, St Ann, from Saturday to Sunday and will host some 80 Jamaican chefs as well restaurants and food vendors.

Marcia McDonnough, managing director of Touchstone Productions and team leader of the JEE project elaborates on the concept. “Although Jamaica is well known for its delectable and varied food offerings, and while we do offer many food events, we do not currently have a sophisticated, international food festival such as the likes of the Aspen Food Festival, South Beach Food and Wine, and so on. We feel that in light of the island’s 50th anniversary year celebrations, the time has come for this to change as we are a prime destination to offer a world-class food event. The festival will bring together the best of everything local and international in the food industry; chefs; food; music. It will feature classy sidewalk cafés and lounges in themed zones within the festival grounds. In addition, it will feature unique and exciting food and table displays, show cooking, demonstrations and symposia. A fully manned Youth Village will offer interesting edutainment for children while giving parents the chance to enjoy the offering. The weekend will be a one of a kind experience for all ages, visitors and locals.”

Miss McDonnough went on to explain that the Jamaica Epicurean Escape is being developed as an annual signature event that will harness Jamaica’s culinary and cultural appeal and thus provides the ideal vehicle for promoting the island to foodies at home and abroad.

The event will have the benefit of an intensive marketing campaign both locally and among the Diaspora as the patronage of some 10,000 foodies worldwide will be targeted to come and enjoy the offerings of food an entertainment at all JEE events.

To facilitate attendance an integral element will be a shuttle service that will ferry patrons from central points across the island to and from the event. In fact the JEE experience begins on entering the vehicle that will transport the guests. Karen Peart of Y Stress, the official concierge partner of the JEE who will also manage the transportation programme, noted that “driving long distances can be stressful and tiring so we believe that stress-free travel arrangements can only bring added value to our guests.

Smoking, Obesity And Lack Of Activity Named As Global Killers

Research published in leading medical journal The Lancet suggests that a lack of exercise can be as big a killer as obesity and smoking.

According to the study, approximately one third of adults do not do a healthy amount of exercise, and it is suggested that this could be causing 5.3 million deaths worldwide each year – the equivalent of one in ten deaths – from related illnesses such as breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Nutritionist Caron Leckie, who works for the UK’s largest provider of chef prepared meals and delivered diets, Diet Chef, comments: “In my experience the weather has a big impact on activity levels, certainly in the UK, and many people use it as an excuse to stay indoors and watch television, rather than getting out and about.

“In addition to this, thousands of our customers have jobs which see them sitting down at a desk for up to nine hours each day. It is logical that this sedentary lifestyle can be conducive to obesity.”

Ms Leckie also added that Diet Chef is “working hard to help people to lose weight with our calorie-controlled diet” and that as a company they are also “working closely with a personal trainer to offer advice and tips on how to move more, no matter what your age, weight or health status.”

It is recommended that adults should do a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week, this equates to just over 20 minutes per day.

According to a report by the BBC, “researchers said the problem was now so bad it should be treated as a pandemic”.

Ms Leckie’s top tips for motivation to exercise include:
1. Add An Activity
2. Try Something Different
3. Find a Positive Each Week
4. Take up a Hobby

Step into Summer will contain a range of hints and tips for diet and exercise, helping those that appear on the show and viewers at home to fight the battle of the bulge this June and achieve their beach body.

ITV Daybreak’s Step into Summer programme will feature a group of mums who will receive key fitness hints and tips to help them and viewers of the show to shape up for summer. The live show will also include a number of healthy food ideas that viewers can pick up on to make appropriate changes to their eating habits throughout the summer.

Diet Chef was founded by Kevin Dorren as a way to bring affordable and delicious diet foods to the UK public.

Diet Chef Warns Football Fans That EURO 2012 Can Seriously Damage Your Health

If you don’t want to end up looking like you’ve swallowed a football…

The hotly anticipated Euro 2012 is finally here, and with it comes trips to the pub, barbecues and beer with the lads – great fun but a calorific disaster. Just three beers, a takeaway pizza and sharing crisps and dip with your mates can add up to a massive 3,500 calories – more than your recommended daily intake of calories in just 90 minutes. And that’s the equivalent of putting on 1lb in weight watching just one match – if your team makes it to the final, you could easily put on half a stone just watching nine hours of footie.

Add to that the fact it is summer which means lots of flesh on show and you really could be in trouble. To help keep you on the straight and narrow and make sure you look good on the beach, down the pub or in the back garden, Diet Chef, the UK’s leading provider of calorie-controlled diet plans, has put together a weight loss diet plan for men, consisting of a custom-filled men’s hamper full of goodies to help you lose that weight but still have a filling meal.

Packed with delicious ‘man-food’, you can still have a proper meal but lose weight into the bargain – the hamper contains curries, chillies, pies, sausages, hot pots and meatballs, you really won’t feel like you are on a diet at all.

The 28 day Diet Chef men’s hamper is only £210 for 28 days worth of food, so just£7.50 a day meaning you’ll save £s as well as lbs. Specially designed to be tailored your individual calorie needs, Diet Chef will ensure you’ll be burning more than you eat to achieve a healthy sustainable weight loss and achieve that beach body.
