Bringing Serenity to the
City & Beyond Bentley is taking the next step on its journey to a sustainable future with the launch of the new Bentayga Hybrid – the only electrified true-luxury SUV in the world, and a model that Bentley predicts will become the best-selling member of the new Bentayga family.
homeofleigh.com | 29
ollowing the recent launches of the new Bentayga V8 and Bentayga Speed, the new Bentayga Hybrid becomes the third model in the most successful luxury SUV portfolio the segment has ever seen. The new exterior and interior design emphasises Bentley design DNA across the entire model range, giving Bentley the freshest and most modern product family of any luxury car company. The new Bentayga Hybrid oﬀers the ultimate in electric luxury, with smooth and silent progress through urban environments, whilst having the grand touring capability to escape the city and explore further. Customers of the Bentayga Hybrid can escape the noise of the city through the refined and acousticallyisolated serenity of the cabin without engine interference, using up to 31 miles of electric only range (NEDC), before physically leaving the city behind with the comfort of a total combined range of 536 miles (NEDC). Delivering the same level of comfort and luxury, yet with a quieter and more refined driving experience, the Bentayga Hybrid brings a selection of new technologies and connected car services, positioning the new product as the most technically advanced Bentayga to date. Introducing the very latest onboard technology and an even more cosseting cabin, the new Bentayga is significantly revised both inside and out from the previous generation. Subtle exterior badging complements the new Bentayga’s exterior design now prevalent across the entire model range, giving Bentley

the freshest and most modern product family of any luxury car company. Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, Adrian Hallmark, comments: “The Bentayga Hybrid is the next step on our journey to becoming the world’s leading sustainable luxury mobility company. Bentley will transform from a 100yearold luxury car company to a new, sustainable, wholly ethical role model for luxury, and the Bentayga Hybrid is the first model to pioneer our company’s recently announced Beyond100 strategy.” Bentley’s research shows over 90 per cent of customers use their firstgeneration Bentayga Hybrid on a daily basis or several times a week, and nearly 100 per cent of customers use EV mode, with half of them consistently undertaking journeys of less than 30 miles. During previous retailer training, 78 per cent zero emissions journeys were achieved regularly over a 500 mile activity. In a more urban environment, one of Bentley’s development drivers achieved 67 per cent zero emissions over 672 miles around San Francisco, and in the UK, Chris Cole – Project Leader for the Bentayga Hybrid achieved 64 per cent zero emissions commuting to and from the factory. In real world terms, the majority of journeys can be achieved completely in electric only, with zero emissions, delivering more benefits environmentally and building on Bentley’s new reputation for sustainability for the future.

Spanish Cooking Julie Neville is the wife of footballer, TV Commentator and football manager Phil Neville. Well known for her love of health and fitness and author of “Superfoods – How to make them work for you”, Julie has always had a passion for cooking.
fter the family's move to Spain in 2015 for Phil to work at Valencia Football Club, Julie was captivated by the Spanish culture, their love for food and cooking and their use of fresh local ingredients. This resulted in her working in a wide range for Spanish restaurants for two years and the creation of her latest book “Authentic Spanish Cooking”. Now relocated in the UK but keen to share all that she has learnt. “Up until three years ago I was confident that I had experienced true Spanish cooking bringing together the many flavours of the Mediterranean – and its health benefits too. I had holidayed many times in this incredible country and sampled many traditional dishes and there are numerous lovely Spanish restaurants emerging all over the UK now too. Moving to Spain in 2015 made me quickly realise that I had not even scratched the surface and that the types of foods the Spanish eat, when they eat, their cooking methods and their use of herbs,
spices, oils and locally produced foods was so incredibly diﬀerent to anything I had tasted or experienced before. My quest to learn as much as I could during my time in Spain about their food and culture resulted in me working in a wide range of incredible restaurants, some Michelin Star with award winning chefs and others only the locals would know where the grandmother is still cooking her famous recipes in what was her original house 60 years earlier. Some in the city, some by the beach and others hidden in the mountains. Collaborating with many of the restaurants in which I worked, I have now brought to you Authentic Spanish Cooking which shares the recipes of restaurant quality food that you can easily recreate in your own home using traditional ingredients and methods. With each restaurant we have provided their most popular dishes including a starter, main course and dessert.” Julie Neville.

Smoked cod croquettes The ingredients in this dish are simply wonderful. The low calorie, omega 3 rich cod, the antibacterial, antiinflammatory garlic, the eggs rich in vitamin D and protein, the antioxidant rich paprika and the detoxifying, immune and digestion boosting onions. However, these are fried and therefore are a two star health rated dish.
Ingredients for 20 Croquettes Allowing two per person Cooking 50 minutes 3 large potatoes boiled (the size of a jacket potato) 400g smoked cod 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon of minced cooked onion 1 tablespoon paprika 3 egg yolks 3 egg whites
1. Boil the potatoes in their skins then when soft squeeze them through a sieve to provide a soft fine potato. 2. Place in a bowl and add the onion, garlic, paprika, cod and egg yolks and mix well. Beat the egg whites with a little water. 3. Form the potato mixture into croquette shapes, soak for a moment in the egg white mixture before frying in a well oiled pan (sunflower oil works well and it has to be really hot) until golden brown on all sides.

Cinnamon cream with warm chocolate sauce The milk in this recipe provides calcium and some protein and the egg yolks are a rare food source of vitamin D as well as boosting cognitive and memory function and heart health. That said, this recipe is also high in fat, sugar and calories and so it has a treat rating.
Cooking 35 minutes Please note that this dessert needs to be refrigerated for a minimum of two hours prior to serving

Whip the egg whites until forming soft peaks and add to the mixture with the sugar and stir well. 3. Place bottomless moulds onto a plate and fill the bases around an inch deep with the crushed biscuits. Press down well. Pour the cinnamon cream mixture into the moulds and then refrigerate for at least two hours. 4. To make the chocolate sauce – melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, then add the cream and the milk and stir well. 5.
