personalities, local board riding clubs and the international surfing event, The Single Fin Mingle. There’s an interview with event co-founder Ambrose McNeill, who talks in detail about the philosophy behind the competition and just how wonderful it is to bring a world class group of

international surfers to Sumner for a week each year. Surf coach, musician and graphic design artist, Brad King, discusses his design work behind ‘The Mingle’ posters and stickers. He admits that the greatest thing for him has been taking up

„„ By Emily O’Connell A PUSH to have Avonhead Park Cemetery renamed to reflect its significance as the final resting place of earthquake victims has come to a halt. The Friends of Avonhead Cemetery group has been lobbying to have the name changed to the Avonhead Memorial Cemetery. Four people who died in the CTV Building collapse and 20 others who lost their lives in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, are buried in the cemetery. But a city council report has found the cemetery can’t be renamed. Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright said the cemetery doesn’t meet the criteria. “What would trigger a site or location to be named a memorial, in this particular case, doesn’t trigger that,” he said. He said the official memorial for earthquake victims is on Oxford Tce. FOAC chairman Clive Paris said the group was not surprised at the response from city council staff. •Turn to page 6

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE FRIENDS of Avonhead Cemetery spokesman Clive Paris doesn’t pull any punches (see page 1) over the decision not to include the name memorial in the cemetery’s name. The issue is whether to add memorial to take into account the 2011 earthquake victims who are interned there has been ongoing for a long time. But now the city council has made a decision that adding the name doesn’t meet required criteria for cemeteries. But Clive isn’t impressed: “They (city council) have always had a backward looking mentality when approaching ideas or issues and tend to go into defence mode rather than looking at the issue and responding positively.” Good to see Tongan league star Tuimoala Lolohea drop into Hornby last week (page 4). They’ll need to be at their best to beat England this weekend. – Barry Clarke

Sea level rise could affect insurance OUTSPOKEN: Christchurch Coastal Residents United spokesman Darrell Latham says climate change is a national responsibility. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Sarla Donovan A SHIFT towards evaluating properties for individual climate change risk may mean insurance premiums will rise on coastal properties. An updated Tonkin and Taylor report on coastal hazards released last week showed close to 25,000 Christchurch houses are at risk of future coastal flooding and 1000 are at risk from coastal erosion. In a worst-case climate change scenario, flooding could affect the coastal city and Banks Peninsula properties within the next 50 to 100 years, the report said. Insurance Council chief executive Tim Grafton said climate change was a certainty. “Sea level will rise and the frequency of extreme weather events will increase.” Mr Grafton said each insurer would take a different approach to risk, depending on the frequency and consequences of flooding. “With respect to climate change, the price signals are likely to be incremental changes over time, rather than swift and rapid change. There is therefore time for a range of adaptation measures that make economic sense to be considered which . . . enable the transfer of risk to insurance to remain affordable

and accessible.” Some properties could become uninsurable if they flooded with high frequency, Mr Grafton said. “They become less insurable as it becomes more certain that they will flood.”

He said New Zealand was unusual in offering all-perils cover house insurance. “In many other countries, flood is an optional add-on to house insurance policies, so flood risk is separately priced.”

​Redcliffs resident and Ray White Ferrymead salesman, Mark Roberts, said insurance companies will always try to mitigate risk. “At the end of the day, people love being by the ocean. They will make decisions (about a property) based on the statistics they get and the risk profile.” Last week’s report is an update of Tonkin and Taylor’s widelycriticised 2015 report suggesting 18,000 properties were at risk of flooding and 6000 susceptible to erosion. The 2015 report was criticised as being scientifically flawed, leading to the updated 2017 version. Christchurch Coastal Residents United spokesman Darrell Latham said climate change was a national responsibility, not just the responsibility of coastal communities or local councils. “Mitigation and compensation must be part of the conversation,” he said.

Another Hawke book comes to the surface •From page 1 Other local breaks to feature include New Brighton, Waikuku and a bay on Banks Peninsula. Taylors Mistake is also present in the introductory section, which shows photos from about 30 years ago. The collection has a broad coverage of New Zealand surfing areas, surfing artists, surf champions and breaks. “It’s actually quite unique in the surfing world as far as surf publications go,” said Mr Hawke.

“We wanted it to seem like there was a new adventure over every page. For this reason, I’ve included the work of some of New Zealand’s top surf photographers to add greater depth and variety.” The book has a limited print run with the plan being to sell it out and not reprint. “We’d like to have a new collection out in two years’ time, something we’ve already started to plan and gather new material for,” Mr Hawke said.

Pensioners plead for help „„ By Emily O’Connell REST HOME residents are again pleading for noisy trucks to be banned from Lodestar Ave. A Lady Wigram Retirement Village resident wrote a letter to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board which was discussed last week. The letter was asking for action to be taken so they could enjoy some “peace and quiet.” Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway (left) asked the board what more they could do to support the progress. Community board chairman Mike Mora said they are supporting the progress by receiving the letter and referring it to city council staff for feedback. Cr Galloway said the Lady Wigram residents are “very upset with how the issue has transpired.” The Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, which would give the city council the ability to restrict heavy vehicles on certain roads,

NOISY: A large container truck on Lodestar Ave, Wigram. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ will go to the city council on Thursday for approval. If the bylaw is approved, the city council will then consider placing a restriction on Lodestar Ave. When asked again this week by Southern View whether she will push for heavy trucks to be stopped, Cr Galloway would only say she’s been working with Wigram MP Megan Woods and

city council staff “to address the concerns of all the residents who are impacted.” “I’ve reassured residents through emails, phone calls and visits that I am taking the concerns seriously and will be using all tools available to us to manage these,” she said. Three weeks ago Cr Galloway told Southern View she doubted

the new bylaw will be of any use. “It seems that speed is the issue and the recommendation is for police to get more involved in monitoring this,” Cr Galloway said. But then Cr Galloway tempered her stance, sending Southern View an email saying the bylaw can work. “There definitely is still hope that it can be used to prevent heavy trucks along Lodestar. Staff cannot consider it as an option until it is passed,” Cr Galloway said. Last week Cr Galloway said she’s thrilled “things are moving so quickly” and she hopes the bylaw is passed. She said the city council’s Heavy Vehicle Parking in Residential Area Policy is another tool which can be used to address the Lodestar Ave situation. Lady Wigram Retirement Village residents said they get woken up at 4.30am. Retirement village residents have been lobbying since April when they met with Cr Galloway and Dr Woods asking for a bylaw to stop trucks being allowed to drive through Lodestar Ave. It’s a short cut to work sites in the area.

It would be located at 563 Springs Rd – down the road from green grocer, Healthy Harvest Fruit and Veges. Foodstuffs South Island property and retail development general manager Roger Davidson said Prebbleton was chosen due to projected customer demand. He said there was a desire from consumers to have access to good quality fresh fruit and produce. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said the new potential shop was exciting.  “We have had applications put in the last 12 months that haven’t turned into anything so it is exciting to see that happening,” he said.

Firework ‘could have led to a death’ „„ By Andrew King A FIREWORK thrown onto the roof of a house caused major damage and could have claimed lives. Fire investigator Bruce Irvine is furious about what happened and says it is now time for a public debate over fireworks. The fire started in the guttering of the Becmead Drive, Harewood, property about 10.30pm on Saturday, November 11, and Bruce spread into the Irvine wall space. The family had just gone to bed and were still awake, said Mr Irvine. About 10min later, the kitchen smoke alarm activated and the family got out of bed. The fire was well involved and had been spread by a ventilation system in the roof space, he said. The father went to the bathroom and burnt his feet on debris that had fallen through the ceiling, he said. Detectives are investigating. Mr Irvine said the fire was so reckless that if someone had died, he would have expected a

murder charge to be laid. “This family’s lives have been destroyed for the next six months because of someone’s thoughtless and idiotic act. It has to stop,” fire risk management officer Bruce Irvine said.

“It was a deliberate act that could have led to a death.” Mr Irvine said it was timely to now start the debate on fireworks. “We want to start the

conversation right here, right now. There have been far too many incidents. And we know it is going to happen, that is the frustrating thing about it. These fires are avoidable,” he said.

He said he wants the public to start the discussion about whether fireworks should be available for general sale or should be limited to organised events only. “Any feedback we get on this from the public will be helpful. That way we can make a strong case for getting rid of them,” he said. He said it was not just the fire, although they were “extremely frustrating”, but the distress caused to animals and surrounding residents with the constant firework use well after the date they are supposed to be set off. “They are supposed to be used for a celebration on November 5, a safe time to use them. Not weeks and weeks after when everything is drying out,” he said.

Cemetery for quake victims will not be renamed •From page 1 “They have always had a backwards looking mentality when approaching ideas or issues and tend to go into defence mode, rather than looking at the issue and responding positively,” he said.

be more confusion if multiple cemeteries had “memorial” in the name. Mr Paris said the group felt the issue had not been resolved and it needed to go back to the community board. “The city now has a legacy to provide a safe haven for the family members and friends left behind here forever,” he said. Mr Cartwright said the city council report on the renaming took a disappointing amount of

time. “What you would think would be a relatively straight forward request for information . . . has taken a little longer than we would have hoped for an answer,” he said. Mr Cartwright said four or five new signs will be placed near the cemetery to help loved ones locate it. He also said there will be some maintenance done to clean up the cemetery.

Governors Bay link with Santa movie „„ By Sarla Donovan GOVERNORS BAY film director Tony Simpson has just finished making the world’s first Kiwi family Christmas movie. Kiwi Christmas has a special screening for friends and family at Hollywood Cinema in Sumner this Sunday before opening nationwide on November 30. The movie tells the story of how Santa, frustrated by the materialism of Christmas, goes ‘awol’ from the North Pole and crash lands at a camp ground in New Zealand where he is adopted by a camping family. Meanwhile, the coast guard think an illegal alien has come in to the country so they go under cover at the camp. The family has to save Santa from the coast guard and then convince him to go back to the North Pole and complete his duties. Co-written with Andy Gunn (brother of Jason Gunn) Mr Simpson said the idea came during one of his own family’s Christmas camping trips to Totaranui in the Abel Tasman National Park, where his children wondered if Santa would be able to find them at the camp ground. Although it is not autobiographical, Mr Simpson said the film was quintessentially Kiwi, unlike most other Christmas movies which were set in the Northern Hemisphere. “Kiwi Christmas is our very own family Christmas film,” Mr Simpson told the Southern View. It has taken four years to make, which was a “fairly quick turnaround” for a feature film, he said. Both Mr Simpson and his editor Scott Flyger live in Governors Bay, which you might think would be a bit far from the filmmaking action. But he said the first couple of years were taken up with getting the script written and the finance and distribution organised. “You can live pretty much anywhere because you can do so much of that over the internet. I was away for about three months

making the film in Auckland. What was good this time was that Scott happened to live in the Bay and the sound editor Chris Sinclair has a studio in Christchurch. So I didn’t have to travel to do post production. “ Most of the cast and crew lived in Auckland so filming took place just north of Orewa Beach, with funding from the New Zealand Film Commission. Mr Simpson said he wanted to make a movie that would appeal to families around the world, and give kiwis the chance to see themselves on the big screen. “We’ll finally have something personal to watch at Christmas time and create a new family tradition with something that reflects the magic of that time of year, Kiwi-style!” It’s the second film Mr Simpson has made with Mr Gunn.

landscape with the towering hillside and the ever-changing harbour. I’m looking forward to summer and getting the boat out and heading over to Quail Island.” The two worked together on 2012s Kiwi Flyer, inspired by the Nelson Trolley Derby which was an institution in the Nelson community where Mr Simpson grew up.

He shifted to Governors Bay with his wife Helen nine years ago, just after their third child was born. “It’s a lovely community and I particularly like the dramatic

End the stigma around epilepsy November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, CoastalBurwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone speaks about his experience with the condition I was first diagnosed with epilepsy at 19. I’m now 54 and have not let the condition hold me back, in fact I’ve used it as a springboard to set goals and achieve them. Leading up to the diagnosis, I could not work out why I was having uncontrollable twitches when falling asleep. At a 1983 Youth Easter Camp I had a seizure, where I blacked out and was taken to hospital with concussion and a suspected broken nose. My worried parents waited while an electroencephalogram revealed the spikes of the ‘extra’ electricity in my brain. Following this, I was diagnosed with myoclonic epilepsy. I was put on medication, which I’ve remained on since, in order to keep the epilepsy under control. One of the consequences of this newly-acquired condition was

not being able to drive for two years. It also meant cycling with a helmet. Cycling wearing a yellow helmet in Palmerston North in 1983 was a novel experience for everyone, both me and the locals. “Hey skid-lid”, or “moon-head”

were all part of the experience of passing motorists in Palmy. Shortly after I was diagnosed and told someone about it, they said: “Oh, you’re an epileptic.” It was that labelling that was to become the impetus for me to set goals and pursue them. In February, I will be taking part in my seventh Coast to Coast event with MP Poto Williams. If you see someone having a seizure and lying on the ground, ensure that they do not come into contact with any furniture if inside and that they can’t hurt themselves. Once the seizure is finished, depending on the severity of it, check that they’re able to breathe without any obstructions in their mouth. They will probably be able to talk to you but may be a bit groggy. In some cases they may need medical attention but every person and every case is different. Those of us with epilepsy, our family and friends, want to be accepted. We should all work to put an end to the stigma around it. Those of us with epilepsy have extra electricity in our brains! So employ us, be cool with us and above all, give us a chance.

  FLAME FILES

Fireworks continue to cause issues „„ By Mark Thomas – fire risk management officer JUST AFTER Guy Fawkes weekend, I left town for a week. On my return, I found heaps of vegetation fires, grass, bushes and trees had been attended.  While that’s a sign of the time of year, it’s also disappointing to see how many of them were the result of fireworks.  The worst incident occurred on November 11 in Harewood, where a firework thrown on to the roof of a house set the roof on fire.  A smoke alarm alerted the occupants but one was still burnt while escaping.  If found, the idiot responsible might well face a charge of arson. Because recklessness is now included in the actions that might constitute the crime.  And you don’t get much more reckless than this. Going through the week’s fire calls, I almost finished without seeing a single kitchen cooking fire, which is almost unheard of.  Until I got to Wednesday

when some people went out from their apartment in Madras St and left a pot on the working stove. The neighbour downstairs smelt smoke and called it in. The occupants just beat the first fire truck in returning and had the job of cleaning up the smoke damage. One week, just maybe, we’ll get through without a single one of these totally preventable incidents. Outside fires are banned. For good reason. A brazier left burning on a deck in Parklands on Wednesday night fell over seemingly after everyone had gone to bed. The deck was destroyed. Also very preventable.

Twitter’s quake research role Student analysing emotional reactions „„ By Bridget Rutherford EARTHQUAKE-related Twitter posts are being analysed to provide a new way of gauging how people are coping, and whether they need more support. Lincoln University PhD student Prerita Gupta is developing a recognition algorithm to identify emotions based on keywords in tweets from 2010-2016. So far, she has collected more than 250,000 tweets as part of the research, which is expected to take up to two years. The Complex Systems, Big Data and Informatics Initiative student said people experiencing upheavals often turned to social media to express their feelings, especially Twitter. She decided to research how people reacted emotionally online when earthquakes struck. “I thought it would be interesting to know which emotions they

The algorithm gauges intense reactions from people, and how they are coping. An example is

a tweet such as “Sharp lil jolt felt in this morning!!!. Forgot how much I hate them.’’ Ms Gupta said the tool could be used by psychologists as a new way of gauging emotional states. She said it could be used as a decision-making tool to understand the collective state of a group affected, and to provide them better support or assistance. The data had geographical locations, so they could see what area was impacted the most, she said. “This information is very useful for health providers in examining the relationship between emotions and the use of anti-depressant medicines, helpful for the Government to plan which affected area needs the maximum health benefit and for social welfare departments to

understand the level of support they should provide to the affected party.” Ms Gupta said traditional approaches such as interviews or surveys may not be the best way to collect data, as it reminded people of the experience and could be traumatising. Analysing Twitter posts was non-intrusive, she said. The Ministry of Health is also investigating whether Facebook or Twitter posts about illnesses or symptoms could be tracked to see if there is a trend in a particular area. It was also looking at whether school absentees, employee sick leave, over-the-counter pharmacy sales, tissue sales or Healthline calls could be utilised in preventing the spread of illnesses.

FOCUS ON HEALTH Dilo Oil – The Remarkable Centuries old folk remedy Skin Rejuvenator supports good health! Until Rachel Hunter’s popular TV series “TOUR OF BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was relatively unknown, being one of the best-kept secrets of the Pacific Islands. It may however be the number one natural beauty oil available as it possesses powerful natural skin regeneration and healing properties. According to ethnobotanist Chris Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo) Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as it is one of the most effective agents in promoting the regeneration and formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. Dilo Oil is super-absorbing and can penetrate all three layers of the skin, offering exceptional cell hydration and regeneration. As well as this, Dilo Oil has potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant properties. Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the skin young and youthful and for just about any skin complaint. Some of the conditions for which it is considered helpful include abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including chemical and radiation), diabetic sores, rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,

eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, herpes sores (cold-sores), insect bites and stings, rheumatism, pain, sciatica, shingles, sunburn, rosacea, athlete’s foot, skin eruptions, warts, skin ulcers and sores, nappy rash and almost any other skin ailment and often with incredible results. Many beauty and skincare products on the market today contain unnatural ingredients that can be toxic and may even contribute to disease. Generally the benefits are exaggerated and often only temporary or camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is 100% pure and certified organic. It has been cold-pressed from the Dilo nut and contains absolutely no additives. Polynesians and Southeast Asians have revered Dilo Oil for centuries believing it to be a sacred gift of nature and the Gods. Dilo oil stimulates and supports the skins natural healing process through the growth of new healthy skin tissue. I personally believe it is a remarkable product and highly recommend it to everyone. A 50ml bottle is $19.90 and 100ml only $29.90. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton. We are Always Happy to Help!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its curative properties. In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he found that Vermonters who regularly consumed ACV and Honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. He also noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. He also noted that Vermonters who consumed ACV and H around meal time had excellent blood pressure and circulation. The reason he found was that protein foods thickened the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly through the blood vessels and capillaries. This poor blood flow would reduce cellular health by limiting nutrients to the cells as well as waste elimination from the cells. To prevent cell damage the body naturally increases blood pressure but this puts more stress on the blood vessels, organs

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable skin anti-aging & healing properties, Dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred Dilo tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”. Dilo oil is often called the beauty oil as it can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration & regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells & this gives it powerful anti-aging & healing properties that can help reduce lines, blemishes, scars & damage to the skin. It also possesses anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties. Dilo Oil Supports • Anti-aging & skin regeneration, helps reduce lines, blemishes, scars & stretch marks • Skin hydration • Skin repair & growth, helps feed the skin & stimulate healthy new cells • Wound healing & skin protection from bacteria, viruses & fungus • Most skin problems, rosacea, pimples, ulcers & sores, acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, rashes, blisters, skin eruptions, warts, insect bites & stings, athlete’s foot, burns, nappy rash etc. • Joint & muscular pain

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein raising the blood pressure. It also contributes to a feeling of greater well-being because the thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular consumption of CV and H to be an excellent health tonic with numerous health attributes. ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Good health starts with good digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken before food will stimulate and promote healthy digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for good health. A well-functioning digestive system helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all ACV is produced in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Hours of care in your cupboards While the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are a well-known feature on the Christchurch retail scene, no quite so well-known is its equally successful counterpart, Maudes on Trade Me. Maudes on Trade Me sells everything from antiques to sporting and household items and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the proceeds of every item supporting hours of care in the Nurse Maude Hospice. With up to 400 items a week being listed and sold Maudes on Trade Me is totally dependent on a steady stream of donated goods. So if it’s something you no longer want or need the chances are it can raise money for the Nurse Maude Hospice. There has always been a strong relationship between the community and the Nurse Maude Hospice. That relationship is what makes it possible for patients and their families to be able to receive care and support free of charge at the Nurse Maude Hospice so they can focus on what matters rather than having to worry about how they’re going to pay for that care. While smaller pieces can be left for Maudes on Trade Me at any of the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops

it is sometimes possible for larger or bulk items to be picked up. Just give them a call on 375 4643 or email them at trademe.volunteers@ nursemaude.org.nz and they can let you know if and when they can pick them up.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance for a beautiful, natural looking smile? Internationally renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees, PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of Lovebite is the person to call. His special point of difference is rebuilding what he calls the Oral Architecture, the structure and shape of a patient’s face that is often lost following years of wearing dentures. Lovebite dentures address problems that can arise due to years of the patient wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly functioning dentures, such as poor occlusion (the way the teeth come together), aesthetics, function and hygiene. An intricate knowledge and understanding of facial features allows Richard to return facial tissues back to the correct position, reform lips, and restore beauty and confidence. Richard provides a friendly, discreet service and personally guides his patients through the transformation process to create teeth with small nuances in the fabrication, colour and shape. Carmen, a recent patient said in a thank you letter to Richard, “I highly recommend your craftsmanship to anyone wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client, one is able to see how meticulous and dedicated you are to ending up with a top class result. My dentures are amazing. They look like one’s own natural teeth. So much time, effort and energy went into the end result. Simply the best.” Richard’s patients have varying needs, from full denture replacement, to first time immediate dentures, implant supported dentures and metal partial dentures. Since he started making teeth in 1980 Richard has travelled extensively, accumulating vast knowledge through training and working in Japan, and running his own practice in the prestigious Harley Street, London for 15 years. He continues to teach his world leading techniques globally. Richard also creates porcelain crowns and veneers, working with like-minded dental professionals. A beautiful new Lovebite smile resembles nature and reflects the patient’s character. It boosts confidence and helps patients to look and feel years younger.

HOW TO ROAST THE PERFECT WHOLE LEG OF LAMB

STRAWBERRY AND MARSHMALLOW PARFAIT Ingredients

Whole leg of lamb 1-2 tbsp oil Rock salt Freshly ground black pepper 4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Take the lamb out of the fridge 30min before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 170 deg C. Place a wire rack in a roasting tray, place the lamb on the rack and brush the meat with the oil and then season with the rock

Directions To prepare the tin, line a narrow terrine mould about 30cm x 10cm with plastic wrap. Set some of the marshmallows along the bottom with some strawberry slices. Place the strawberries in a saucepan with half the sugar. Bring to a gentle simmer over a low heat. The juices will come out, so there is no need to add water. Simmer for no more than 2min, then remove from the heat and mash or purée the mixture. Return it to the pan and set aside. Use an electric beater to whisk the egg yolks and whole eggs with the remaining sugar until thick and mousse-like. Return the strawberry and sugar

mixture to the heat and bring to a simmer. With the beater still running, tip this hot mixture into the eggs and continue whisking until it is really thick and well incorporated. The hot sugar and strawberries “cook” the egg yolk, so it is not raw. Whip the cream until it reach-
