La raclette: an alpine specialty to taste as quickly as possible!

All alpine flavors are in your plate! This cooking classic, right off our mountains and revisited by the winter tourism, offers all cheese aromas combined with exquisite delicatessen. All these excellent products are locally made: ham, cooked or raw, all sorts of sausages, Savoy rosette or Italian coppa, pancotta and mortadella. Switzerland is also in the spotlight here: Grisons meat – or Bündnerfleisch – is an excellent pick too!

To better serve you, “Boucherie Charcuterie Favre”, located in the very center of Modane, offers you the best of its products! As a specialist of cured meats, we suggest our ham and beef or pork meat, smoked or dried.

A few miles away from Haute-Maurienne, the Valais area provides the smooth and tasty raclette cheese, which easily melts and slowly roasts when exposed to heat. This cow milk uncooked pressed cheese is the key ingredient in raclette. Served with potatoes and a good local fruity and tasty white wine, raclette will undoubtedly stimulate kids and grown-ups appetite when the first snowflakes start falling.

But don’t forget vegetables! Onions, pickles, green salads or tomatoes gracefully combine with delicatessen and cheese to help facilitate digestion. Mixing ingredients and flavors is a real integral part of the game!

To end up with a sweet note, you will choose desserts such as an exotic salad, sorbets, Bavarian mousse or foiled fruits!

Displayed on a large plate, nearby the raclette instrument, this greedy dish is the king of alpine winter and will bring you happiness! Perfect to warm up or as a cheering following your sporting efforts, with your family or with friends, raclette is a real must taste. Nutritious and bountiful, friendly and tasty, raclette resembles our region: you can taste it without any restriction!

More Food & Beverage press releases Deliver Their Solution For A Vegetarian-Friendly Christmas

Traditionally, Christmas is something of a meat-eaters holiday with turkey, gammon and goose all familiar fayre around the dining table.

Nowadays, some 11% of the UK population is vegetarian however; throwing something of a carrot-shaped spanner into the works when it comes to the iconic Christmas roast.

Thankfully, the gourmet gurus at Christmas Hamper have come up with the perfect solution this holiday season – a range of veggie hampers that make for vegetarian-friendly gifting and dining.

Christmas Hamper’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained their reasons for including vegetarian hampers across the range:

“Consumers are becoming more and more conscious about what they put on their plates with regard to whether something is organic, locally sourced, ethically farmed and so forth.

“Vegetarianism has been around for some time now and it would be a real indication that we were out of touch with over 10% of our potential consumers if we weren’t to acknowledge this.

“We’re proud to offer vegetarian options right across our range; be it our Scottish Christmas hampersluxury Christmas hampers and even our savoury Chirstmas hamperrange. In that sense, there really is something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds.”

As well as offering a selection of over one hundred mouth-watering hampers, gift trays and baskets, Christmas Hamper have also become famed for their corporate packages that give businesses of any size the opportunity to customise and create bespoke Christmas gifts for colleagues and clients.

As Samantha Barries explains, being able to celebrate the dietary choices of individual clients goes a long way in demonstrating their value to your business:

“When it comes to corporate Christmas gifts there’s plenty of scope for creativity and individuality but a lot of businesses fall into the trap of opting for something more or less ‘off the shelf’.

More Food & Beverage press releases – Luxury Christmas Hampers

With only twenty-three days of shopping left to go, things are really starting to heat up for consumers battling against the icy conditions, determined to buy friends, family and colleagues that perfect Christmas gift.

Could The Dilemma Of Buying For That 'Person Who Has Everything' Finally Be Over? Christmas Hamper - - Certainly Think So

Whilst Christmas wish-lists and dropping the odd hint might go some way to help make Christmas gift giving that little bit more straightforward, each year still poses the dilemma – what to get for the person who has everything?

Thankfully, gourmet gurus – Highland Fayre – think they’ve solved the problem with their range of luxury Christmas Hampers; jam-packed with festive fayre and other goodies to suit absolutely any budget.

Discussing the versatility of Christmas hampers, Highland Fayre’s business development manager – Samantha Barrie – explained:

“The Christmas rush can become a stressful time of year, even for the most organised amongst us. This isn’t helped when you’re attempting to buy for that fabled ‘person who has everything’ or even someone who’s not sure what they’d like for Christmas.

“In situations like these, luxury Christmas hampers serve as an excellent gift; loaded with treats that can be enjoyed throughout the festive season and beyond. Our bespoke hamper service also allows you to tailor your gift to the personal preferences or dietary requirements of the person you’re gifting to and when presented in one of our Christmas gift baskets, trays, hampers or cartons they really make something of a show-stopper.”

The solutions posed by needn’t stop there either as the flexibility of this style of gift giving means customers can peruse hundreds of pre-made collections at their leisure, from the comfort and warmth of their home.

Furthermore, as Samantha Barrie explains, this year’s Christmas hampers collection could be just the ticket for people buying for other potentially tricky recipients:

“As well a buying for people who have everything, there’s often other people on our to-buy for list who we might not know very well but still want to gift to – a child’s school teacher or long distance relative being a good example of this.

“In cases such as these, Christmas hampers act as a thoughtful gift and can be made as personal as need be. We’ve found that our range of Scottish Christmas Gift Hampers, for example, are particularly popular with people gifting to Scottish expats who may have lived out of the country for some years now but are still delighted to receive a gift reminding them of where they grew up.”

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery at Hackney Wicked

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival had its third successful year of operation this month, and taking part was one of the local area’s most successful companies, H Forman and Sons. Their premises opposite the Olympic park house the Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery.

The Hackney Wicked Art Festival has become a firm fixture on the London summer calendar, despite only having operated for three years. More than 30,000 people are thought to have attended this year, the highest yet seen at the festival. There are numerous art exhibitions, theatre and cabaret performances all over the Hackney Wick area, as well as interactive family events and markets. The emphasis this year, as ever, was on including local businesses and the local community.

Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery is open all year round, but it put on a special exhibition for the festival called ‘I see myself there, where I am not’. Rather than being a single artist exhibition, this included ten different artists’ work, all based around a theme – exploring ideas of heterotopias and ‘the other’. The gallery was the venue for the launch of the whole festival on Friday 30 July, hosting a successful opening night with lots of enjoyment to be had by all attendees.

The gallery continued to be very popular over the weekend – and not just for the art. After enjoying the gallery, many visitors chose to take in a meal at the brasserie, which operated all weekend, or take home some gourmet foods to enjoy later. Kids loved the family drawing day, where they got to take part in a competition to draw a picture of the Olympic stadium.

The range of cheeses and meats in Spanish food is also impressive: for meat lovers, there’s no better gift than a well preserved chorizo sausage, or some finely prepared Serrano ham, and the Manchego, Idiazabal and Murcia al Vino cheeses are some of the best in the world, and will certainly get the love and appreciation they deserve from the cheese addicts among your presents list.

When stuck for something to buy those at Christmas who insist that it’s a time for enjoyment and fun, then, remember that specialist and genuinely quality food and drink are excellent luxuries that most people will appreciate, and that Spanish food is some of the best cuisine out there.

The Mediterranean is so rich in cuisine, in fact, that some of its most famous exports – its meats and cheeses – are easily matched by its vegetarian dishes, such as asparagus, piquillo peppers and artichokes.

For those with a sweet tooth, too, there are plenty of nuts, sweets and honeys and jams that can satisfy even the most ardent sugar fiend.

FoodTV Promotes Prudent Portions

With obesity rates rising, it is more important than ever that people eat healthily and take enough exercise. That is why FoodTV provide hundreds of simple and nutritious recipes, as well as demonstration videos to view online. However, when you begin to experiment and create your own dishes you shouldn’t forget the advice gained from FoodTV.

Every meal should include a variety of vegetables, carbohydrates and protein. You should also follow these tips for simple portion control:

When cooking dried spaghetti, you should prepare a small handful for each person. Obviously this won’t work with some of the numerous varieties of pasta – a handful of penne pasta is not the same as a handful of tagliatelle.

Instead, a 230 gram serving of pasta is roughly the same size as a tennis ball. To make your pasta dishes even healthier, choose the wholegrain option.

Meat and fish
Both meat and fish are great sources of protein. However, nutritionists recommend you limit your intake of red meat, such as beef or lamb.

An average serving of meat should be about the same size as a deck of cards or a chequebook. A serving of fish – which is high in Omega 3 – should be about the same.

Whenever possible you should steam vegetables, as this means they will retain more of their nutrients. A 115 gram serving of cooked vegetables should be around the same size as an orange.

Dried fruit
While dried fruit will last much longer than fresh, it has around five times the calories by weight. To make sure you don’t overindulge, you should remember that a single serving of dried fruits should be about the same size as an egg or a golf ball.

Salad dressing
There is no need to add spoonfuls of dressing to add life to a salad. Instead, a drizzle of about five grams (roughly the size of your thumbnail) should be sufficient.
