HAIR PHYSIQUE FACE LEGS BUTT

Seeing is believing How long has Pine and Oak been established? Pine & Oak has been established for 20 years now. We’ve been on the Champions site for Five years. Predominately, we’re a family run business, but the growing success has allowed us to employ local people. They look after the warehouse & deliver our furniture to addresses all over Wirral, Cheshire, North Wales and beyond. In addition we also employ skilled local people to assemble all furniture and ensure nothing leaves us without being 100% right.

We hear that 'seeing is believing' with the quality of your products. Tell us more. We found that putting prices on any adverts became somewhat misleading. It gave the impression that our furniture was of a low quality, when the opposite is true. All our lines stand up against anything in leading high street outlets and in most cases like for like is significantly lower in price when purchased from Pine & Oak.

You offer trade counter prices on all stock. How can you do this? By keeping our overheads at a minimum and not being greedy on our margins enables us to maintain discount prices. The Pine & Oak policy is not to inflate prices then give false discounts.

Can customers only order by coming down to your warehouse? Obviously we would love everyone to come down and visit us - seeing is believing remember?! But we understand this isn't always practical. Our website allows customers to view all of our products, order on-line and arrange delivery. It's a really easy system and is available at www.pineandoakwarehouse.com. The on line part of our business has grown steadily year on year. Although our stock is popular here on Wirral mainly due to the quality & prices we offer. In other parts of the UK these prices are just not available, hence on line ordering has become a major part of our business structure.

You are in our magazine again, great! What keeps you coming back? Wirral Focus Magazine has given us the platform to promote both the warehouse and on-line parts of the business through this quality magazine. We love the idea that it is hand delivered to 10,000 homes in Wirral and that we also are included in the on-line directory on www.focusbestdeals.co.uk. We know the website has had 50,000 hits in July, how else could we reach so many people in Wirral?!

Focus on food – Top Tips! • Plunge vegetables in ice water after blanching (boiling) them so they maintain a bright colour.

• Don't overcrowd the pan when you're sautéing — it'll make your food steam instead. • When grinding your own beef for burgers, grind in some bacon. • Use good oil when cooking. Smell and taste it: If it doesn't taste good alone, it won't taste good in your food.

• Celery: To keep celery fresh for long time, wrap it in aluminium foil and place in the refrigerator.

• Garlic: Garlic skin comes off easily if the garlic cloves are slightly warmed before peeling.

• Fruits: To ripen fruits, wrap them in newspaper and put in a warm place for 2-3 days. The ethylene gas they emit will make them ripe.

Serves 4

500g Lamb Mince / 1 Onion Chopped

1 tsp Ground Cumin / 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika Pinch Ground Cloves

1 Large Bunch Coriander Chopped / 1 Egg Vegetable Oil / 2tbsp Harrisa Paste

400g tin Chopped Tomatoes

4 Tomatoes Chopped / 400ml Chicken Stock

1 Cinnamon Stick

Using your hands mix the lamb, onion, cumin, paprika, cloves, half the coriander leaves and egg till well combined. Next form the meat into walnut sized meatballs - I made about 20, then brown them in a pan with a little oil. Remove them from the pan and add the harissa. Cook the paste for a minute then add the tomatoes, stock and cinnamon. If you snap the cinnamon stick in half it helps to release the flavour. Simmer the sauce for 15 minutes then return the meatballs and simmer for a further 20 minutes until cooked. To finish, stir through the rest of the coriander. I have served the stew with pasta but steamed cous cous, rice or mashed potato all work well with the thick rich sauce.

Models then walked down the catwalk to show their total look to the Judges who were representatives from Industry. Most of these models have never walked down a catwalk and it can be a daunting prospect for them, especially when sometimes they are called upon to dance or showcase their work. Also, some of the outfits were quite flamboyant, and mostly made by the students to best represent their theme.
