Here at Essex Wine School we have three main aims; to taste great wine, to help guests understand what wines they like and why and to have fun along the way.

We love food and wine pairings and our Cheese and Wine Workshop includes Champagne and Port. Champagne and Sparkling with Fish and chips is a fun evening where we look at why these wines pair so well. Spanish wines and tapas is always popular and we are developing a Pizza and Wine evening.

VVVVV I have been returning here since my first visit in 2014. It is not often that a restaurant stays continually excellent... but Thai1 definitely has! The food is always as good as the first time, fresh and tasty. Service always very good. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will keep returning!! Bevvy91

We are the longest established Thai Restaurant in Colchester, Essex, Britain’s oldest recorded town. We pride ourselves on serving only the best in truly authentic Thai dishes, all freshly prepared and cooked from locally sourced suppliers by our highly experienced Bangkok trained Thai chef’s.

VVVVV Fabulous on all fronts Went here for date night with my fiancé and the food didn’t disappoint. Staff were absolutely lovely.. Mr behind the bar was hilarious too.. we’ll definitely return. I can be a little fussy but I found this place an absolute dream. Thanks guys! Xx Chillel W VVVVV Possibly the best meal I’ve ever eaten! Popped in with my partner this evening, the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and very welcoming staff. However what has made me come online and review is the food. This was possibly the tastiest meal I’ve ever eaten. Everything was delicious; cooked perfectly, perfect seasoning and i left not able to fit another crumb in my stomach. Wow, compliments to the chef, we will certainly be back! joelywebber

Why should you eat more fruit and vegetables? The NHS advise we eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day, but did you know this number was chosen on the basis that it would be achievable for most of us?


he British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) actually recommend we work towards a total of 7 portions (5 vegetables and 2 fruit), Karen Maude, Nutritional Therapist tells us.

Eating the rainbow By combining an assortment of colourful fruit and vegetables you can increase your intake of essential vitamins and minerals and also lesser known health boosting phytonutrients.

Red: tomatoes and red peppers provide lycopene to protect against skin and prostate cancer. Green: spinach and kale are rich in magnesium to boost energy levels. So you are looking for Easy wins...

So, what are the risks of not eating enough fruit and vegetables? The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimate an insufficient intake causes around 14% of gastrointestinal cancer deaths, 11% of coronary artery disease deaths and 9% of stroke deaths globally.

Take your pick:

Smoothies Blitz a smoothie for a quick breakfast or mid-morning snack and follow the 2/3 vegetable and 1/3 fruit rule, avoiding fruit juice which will spike your blood sugar. Use frozen or fresh ingredients, plus a plant milk or herbal tea.

Orange: sweet potatoes and carrots are packed with beta carotene for skin health. Purple: aubergines and red cabbage are a good source of anthocyanins with anti-diabetic and antiinflammatory properties.

Sauces Blend onion, celery, carrot, courgette and tomatoes into a pasta or tagine sauce. Work spinach and kale into a curry or get a kick from tomatoes, cucumber, onion and lime in a Mexican salsa. Breakfast Don’t miss out at breakfast. Add frozen or fresh fruit to your porridge, enjoy avocado and poached eggs or devour a simple slice of rye bread with almond butter and banana before you dash out the door. www.elitemagazine.co.uk
