All Hail Macbeth! Barbican Theatre are excited to be bringing Shakespeare’s Macbeth to the Residence One Garden at Royal William Yard from 31 July – 11 August.

Macbeth will be the fourth production in their popular annual ’Bard in the Yard’ programme, running outdoors at the extraordinary Royal William Yard site, adjacent to Plymouth’s historic waterfront. This follows their three hugely successful previous summer productions A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2015), Romeo & Juliet (2016) and Twelfth Night (2017). The production is part of Barbican Theatre’s commitment to creating high quality, accessible work while supporting and developing local talent.

‘Something wicked this way comes’… Macbeth is a good man, a courageous war hero, respected and loyal. He recognises an opportunity for advancement, he is talented, ambitious....and his wife even more so. But what lengths will he go to secure his power and what will he do with this power?

Sheila Snellgrove, Chief Executive of Barbican Theatre says “This is a highly visual, energised and accessible re-telling of the classic Shakespeare play, using the extraordinary skills of local professional actors and emerging artists. We’re thrilled to be back in the garden at Royal William Yard for our fourth year”

Set in a war torn country Macbeth is a powerful metaphor for our times. This is a breathtaking and bloody story of ambition, treachery, power and guilt.

Control Enthusiast

Since winning the 2008 if.comedy Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for her debut solo show, Sarah Millican's Not Nice, Sarah has firmly established herself as a household name, having been nominated three times for The British Comedy Awards People's Choice: Queen of Comedy and winning the award in 2011.

Her fifth tour, Control Enthusiast will mark ten years since Sarah established herself as one of the leading lights of the British Comedy. In the subsequent years, Sarah has gone on to host three series of her critically acclaimed BBC2 series The Sarah Millican Television Programme, for which she received two BAFTA nominations and has become a familiar face on primetime shows such as QI, Live at the Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance. Sarah Millican isn’t a control freak, she’s a control enthusiast. She even controls her own insults, see? Do you arrange the nights out? Are you in charge of passports on holiday? Then so are you!

If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR BOOK.

food and drink Unrivalled views make The Corinthian the perfect venue for any occasion

Situated on the edge of Plymouth’s famous waterfront, drenched in history, an iconic figure of Plymouth Hoe is The Corinthian.

The origins of Father's Day There is a school of thought that believes Father's Day is a relatively recent concept, conceived to compliment the already popular Mother's Day and celebrate the paternal side of parenting. It may, therefore, surprise you to know that scholars believe the earliest Father's Day message came from a young boy called Elmesu, who lived 4000 years ago in Babylon (modern day Iraq), and carved a message on a card , out of clay, wishing his Babylonian father good health and a long life. Father's Day remained an annual appreciation in several countries all over the world but only became popular in Western culture during the early twentieth century. Although there are numerous potential 'founders' of Father's Day in Western society, one persons efforts stand out above all others. Born in Arkansas, but raised just outside of Spokane, Washinton, Sonna Smart Dood had seen the success obtained by Anna Jarvis, promoting Mother's Day in the US, and took it on herself to make sure fathers were honoured throughout the nation.

The first Father's Day celebration was in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910 and although it didn't have much success initially it was on her return from College in the early 1930's that Dodd started to raise awareness of the day on a national level. Having gained the necessary support from trade groups that may benefit from the celebration (tie manufacturers, tobacconists etc..) and from 1938, the Father's Day Council, founded by the New York Associated Men's Wear Retailers to consolidate and systematize the commercial promotion, Father's Day celebrations became more widespread. Despite her best efforts, Fathers Day still hadn't been embraced by the American public. Many took a cynical view that, like Mother's Day, it was a synthetic celebration solely for the purposes of commercial industries to make more money. Despite presidential backing, it wasn't until 1966 that President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honouring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day.

Although there are numerous potential 'founders' of Father's Day in Western society, one persons efforts stand out above all others. Dodd's own father, William Jackson Smart, was a Civil War veteran and a single parent who reared his six children after his wife died in child birth. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis' Mother's Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honouring them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father's birthday, the pastors hadn't enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. It was soon after that Father's Day was adopted by the UK, although not a national holiday, many of us take the opportunity to treat our 'Dad's' in the form of gifts, meals or just a relaxing day.

Labelled with love by Stephen Barrett Of late I have been tasting many wines from throughout the world. As I write I am off to another tasting in London with a probability of around 120 wines to taste. This spurned me to think a little outside the box and look at current trend in wine and how they are presented on the shelves. Tradition is and always will be with us so wine labelling would always follow that. The classic heraldic orientated wine labels of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Germany and Spain are something we are familiar with especially with the finer wines they elaborate. It is probably inconceivable that the great wines of the regions will ever change as they set the standard of presentation many years before. But with the wine market changing at a rate of knots the newer perhaps brighter labels are now out there vying for your attention. So the obviously “out there” labels have become the new kids on the block just like their contemporaries of previous centuries. The first real change in wine labels in the 1970’s came via George Duboeuf the great wine impresario from Beaujolais. Overnight he created the “flower label” and plonked it on all of his young Beaujolais’ it was an instant success with first the restaurant trade and latterly the high street chains. Placed in the centre of the aisle they were unmissable to the eye therefore a quick swipe off the shelves saw these wines into the trolley before you could whip the cork out of the bottle!

In the past week a couple of these stylised labelled wines have landed on my tasting table showing a pair of funky Tango dancers in true Argentinian pose.

Experience award-winning Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall after-hours. Enjoy full use of the swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool (with outdoor swim through) and soothing heat experiences. Once fully rested and relaxed, get ready for a tasty three-course dinner at the Mayflower Brasserie. The Mayflower launched in December 2017 and offers an informal yet equally delicious alternative to Boringdon’s fine dining Gallery Restaurant.

The words Malbec and Pinot Grigio are pasted on the front of the label without too much intrusion to the dancers so harmoniously fit the package. If you care to read the back label the current and legal stuff is all there. But who reads back labels when the front is all you need? Next the price. If it's in your price bracket it pops into your trolley! So what about these wines with fancy, dancy labels are they what you wish? The Pinot Grigio is a fresh pear scented wine with a delicate citrus finish. A good casual light wine that is a fave with many. Malbec can come in many different guises but this one follows the light touch similar to what the Pinot Grigio has to offer. Easy sipping with a light Cherry scent and a brambly mid palate note. Both very sound wines and at £7 a bottle from Sainsbury's under the Comuna labeI I am sure they will fit the bill.

The dining space offers fresh, seasonal cuisine in relaxed, contemporary surroundings - the brasserie has a modern feel yet maintains the feeling of history, charm and elegance of the manor house. The oak flooring, beautiful fabrics and contemporary seating creates a warm, welcoming ambience with a stylish blend of the old and new. Twilight & Dine £50 per person | 6.30pm – 9.30pm | Booking is essential, limited spaces available each day.

He then applied it as a screen print to his emonymous Beaujolais Nouveau the young wine of the vintage released each third Thursday in November for instant satisfaction! As I see it these eye catching colourful labels also have another role to entice the potential customer to experiment and taste something different! Take the two current high street favourites Malbec for the reds and Pinot Grigio for the whites. With the more colourful the label the better chance Malbec and Pinot Grigio have ending up on your kitchen table. It also helps that they are easily pronounced!

Stunning views across the estuary

The Orestone Manor Hotel

Award-winning food

review by Stephen Barrett

In the Westcountry there are many terrific boutique or country house hotels that are run by passionate and expert patrons, none finer than the family-run Orestone Manor Hotel in Maidencombe on the glorious English Riviera that sports luxurious accommodation and 2 rosettes for fine dining from the AA. This is a gem of a place hidden from the main road meandering between Shaldon and Torquay nestling in a winding copse of ancient trees and walkways pointing to the hidden coves below. On parking my car and taking in the sea air I realised that this is an amazing spot for bird watching as I counted six species in as many minutes. Indeed I discovered just a few minutes walk from the hotel the excellent RSPB site at Labrador Bay. This is the home of the Cirl

The scene is set for a relaxing couple of days with a welcome of assuring professionalism from all the staff in all departments. Eager to please with taste and style was evident.

The garden and south facing rooms at Orestone Manor also allow great views sweeping over the trees to the vast Lyme Bay sound to the South and South East.

Orestone Manor is owned by a family of caterers, some might say chefs as the easy-going “nod” to great menus throughout the range is its hallmark with Chef Darryl Sharpe at the helm.

The Orestone Manor Hotel

Bunting that nests here and is thriving. I also observed a fluttering Sparrow Hawk, Buzzard and numerous small birds with an abundance of Gulls cruising on the thermals above the tree line.

Open to non – residents it’s a haven for producing the simple things very well – Sunday Lunch for example is a renowned event packing the restaurant every week with a modern or “Orestone” twist on the great Sunday Lunch classic. I was (as you might expect) eager to investigate the newly re-shaped Wine List so it was off to the bar I ventured meeting Craig to sip my way through samples of excellent wines purchased after extensive tasting from many different Wine Merchants.

Exquisite rooms

Stunning gardens

The Garden Suite

Beach at Maidencombe

Strolling between the two beaches either side of the peninsular that is Teignmouth, overlooking Shaldon’s quietly understated style offers the visitor real quality in and around this great estuary.

Haunch were my supper fancy with spot-on glasses of wine to match both courses.

Glasses of Picpoul de Pinet, Sharpham Dart Valley Reserve and several v tasty Reds from the Rhone and the South of France vie for notation with Sharpham Blanc and great Champagnes dispensed with knowledgeable ease. Cocktails are also a great addition to the new bar with the usual suspects available at any time. Creating a “Brunelli” Gin – based Martini in honour of one of the hotels great visitors Isambard Kingdom Brunel with Plymouth Gin and Tio Pepe (slinging the drinks that would have been in the bar during his time) seemed the sort of fun thing that the Orestone can execute with ease! My room, the Horsley Suite, was a south facing, four-poster bedded comfort zone of real quality overlooking the great Coves that make up the walks and explorations of the sweeping fields between Shaldon and Torquay. It a mesmerising view that captures the sunrise with deft piercing into the room.

Breakfast is a garden room experience that starts the day with calm styling offering both buffet and traditional dishes to start the day.

After a peaceful night’s sleep my stay was coming to an end so one final stroll around the gardens, viewing the newly created Coach House (two duplex suites – next time I hope!) nestling in the shadow of the main house looking fine with the east sun’s shafts of light creating Spring’s promise of a new season.

Thanks to Neil and Catherine D’Allen and their great staff for hosting my visit.

Eager to experience the locality I headed toward Shaldon a few miles to the East where I parked my car and jumped on the historic ferry to Teignmouth. Strolling between the two beaches either side of the peninsular that is Teignmouth, overlooking Shaldon’s quietly understated style offers the visitor real quality in and around this great estuary. Heading back to the hotel I then headed for the local pub down Steep Lane to the Thatched Tavern where tradition is married to modern pub food and just 270m from the beach at Maidencombe Cove. So there’s plenty to find in and around this great hamlet. Supper is a highlight at Orestone Manor with a brilliant combination of a fixed price plus ala carte menus that are easily mixed.

Head Chef Nicholas Reed

Focused on perfect presentation

Following five years of dedication at the Duke, Nicholas Reed was recently promoted to the hotel's new Head Chef. Having played a key part in the hotel's recent award of a second AA Rosette for its fine dining, Nick brings passion and creativity to his new role. Nick’s drive ensures that the Restaurant remains fresh and inviting for returning guests and residents alike, often taking an adventurous twist on dishes. Here, Nick talks about his career so far, his influecnces as well as his exciting plans for the Duke. Congratulations on your new role as Head Chef at The Duke of Cornwall. For those who aren’t aware of your background, can you tell us a little about your career so far. When I turned 18 in 2010, I started my career by studying at City College Plymouth. I studied BTEC Food and Beverage Service level 1, followed by Professional Cookery level 3. Shortly after completion of my studies, I began working at the Tudor Rose Tea Rooms on the Barbican, before joining the team at The Duke. I worked my way up through various roles, starting as Commis Chef and was then promoted to Head Chef several years later. Having gained hands on experience in each role, I feel this has equipped me to manage the team confidently.

the Two AA Rosette offering in the Restaurant provides a great deal of diversity and keeps the role interesting. How did you feel when you were offered the position? I was excited to be given the opportunity to head up the kitchen team, and to make my mark by implementing new menus and fresh ideas. Although I knew this would be a challenge, having worked at the hotel for five years, I felt the time was right to take the next step and further my career. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working at the hotel so far and look forward to seeing what the future brings.

What attracted you to the role at the Hotel?

How would you describe your style of cooking?

I have always wanted to work in a large kitchen where I could really develop my skills alongside a talented team of Chefs. The hotel caters for a wide variety of functions and events with everything from weddings, charity balls, proms and large conferences. This combined with

I enjoy cooking classic dishes and traditional British food, using the very best local ingredients. I like to ensure that the Restaurant remains fresh and inviting for returning local guests and residents alike, often adding a unique twist on dishes.

How fortunate are we to have such amazing produce on our doorstep? Extremely! We work very closely with local suppliers and make the most of a fantastic range of locally sourced ingredients. We have a great relationship with our suppliers and make regular visits, enabling the team to see where the produce comes from and providing us with inspiration for new dishes. What can we expect to see on the menu at The Duke of Cornwall this summer? I have some exciting new dishes planned for the coming months, but here are just a couple of my favourites. The first is Poached Rhubarb with Set Vanilla Custard, Honey Granola and Stem Ginger Ice Cream. The second dish is Roasted Lamb Rump with Spiced Aubergine Puree, Minted Feta Fritters and Tomato Relish. I hope that these will be enjoyed by those visiting our Restaurant! For the last three years, we have offered Champagne Tea at the Top in our Tower and each year I have enjoyed creating a new menu.

Here are just some of the items that guests can look forward to for the coming season: An Atlantic Prawn, Crab and Marie Rose Sandwich, Ham Hock and Piccalilli Crostini, Plum and Amaretti Fool and of course freshly baked Scones with Jam and Cream. Who has been the biggest influence in your career to date? I take a lot of inspiration from British Chefs – I don’t tend to watch cooking shows on TV, but do enjoy reading cook books and researching online. I am influenced by Chefs such as Marcus Wareing, Michel Roux and Simon Holstone. I am also inspired by my team on a daily basis, we all share ideas and come up with new dishes together. As a relatively small team, we are able to work closely together and can bounce ideas off one another. What are your first memories of food and has that influenced your style throughout your career?

I have always had an interest in food, even from a young age. I realised it was a career I wanted to pursue whilst visiting a Michelin star restaurant in France when I was 13. The food was amazing and like nothing I had ever tasted before – I loved the fresh ingredients, and the variety of flavours. Looking back, I have fond memories of spending time with my family and enjoying meals abroad with fantastic fresh food and locally sourced fish and vegetables. I wanted to be able to create that dining experience for others, and to inspire people to try different dishes.

Braised Short Rib, Suet Pudding, Caramelised Onion and Cavolo Nero. This has been particularly popular with our guests and we have had great feedback! What exciting plans do you have for the restaurant and for the rest of the year? We will continue to work hard and maintain the current high standard. It is my long-term ambition for the Restaurant to be known as the place to go in Plymouth for fantastic food and a fine dining experience, as well as the perfect venue for special occasions. If you haven’t dined with us, then we hope we have tempted you. Our Restaurant is open seven days a week from 7pm.Visit the website to view a sample menu and remember we have beautiful function rooms available for private hire for special occasions. Our team look forward to welcoming you.

What is your food hell and food heaven? Heaven – I love Seafood so possibly Oysters, Mussels and Langoustines. We are privileged to live near the sea and have access to wonderful fresh ingredients.

Do Your Bit to reduce single use plastics and support the National Marine Aquarium

Launched on the 6th April 2018 the One Plymouth Cup aims to reduce single use plastics whilst supporting the National Marine Aquarium. #DoingMyBit

The single use throwaway How the 'One Plymouth Cup' will help #DoingMyBit plastic problem... We are all aware of the extortionate amount of single use plastic materials ending up in landfill, our oceans or on our streets every day, now it’s time to take action! UK consumers are the second biggest users per person of single-use drinks cups, straws, food containers & wet wipes and it’s nothing to be proud of. 2.5 billion coffee cups are thrown away every year in the UK and only 1 cup in every 400 gets recycled. Although the disposable coffee cups are mostly made out of paper, the inside lining of the cup which makes it waterproof is in fact plastic, polythene to be precise. The tight bonding of the paper and plastic lining, along with the “paper” cup being contaminated with drink means that they cannot be accepted paper mills. The cardboard ring also rarely gets recycled.

We are not trying to demonise plastic, rather promote more multi-use solutions to try and educate and in effect reduce landfill. Plymouth based Redrok and a community network ‘One Plymouth’ have joined forces to bring you the ‘One Plymouth Cup’! The cups will be available to buy from a variety of local cafes and businesses soon. Each purchase includes a 25p charitable donation to National Marine Aquarium to help fund their vital research projects and their marine conservation agenda. A full list of businesses supporting the cause will be posted on this website and mentioned on the One Plymouth social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. - Microwave safe! You can grab a coffee “on the go” on your way to work, then wash it and use to heat up your soup at lunchtime.

- No ordinary cup, it’s a bonus cup that gets better over time with more discounts & offers at local businesses. Some cups will have “Golden ticket” prizes to be won such as day trips, entry tickets, meal vouchers and more. It’s like a “kinder egg” for grownups! - Dishwasher safe and BPA free - Extremely durable, long-life product which is designed to last - Thermal mug to keep your hot drinks warm or cold drinks cool - Light weight, unlike ceramic cups, which makes it even easier to carry around in your bag - Manufactured in the UK and part of a locally promoted scheme supporting a Plymouth charity, the National Marine Aquarium. - Screw top lid making it a lot more spill proof and long lasting - Just pass it to your barista next time you order your hot drink - Follow the dedicated Facebook group: - Keep an eye out for special discounts when using your ‘One Plymouth Cup’ cup at participating cafes. #DoingMyBit

Tastes of Asia

To the ruler, the people are heaven; to the people, food is heaven. Ancient Chinese proverb Asia is the largest continent in the world, and is made up of hundreds of different regions, countries, and subcultures. Therefore the term Asian food is often considered to be too broad by most culinary experts and is often broken down into the following regions: East Asian, Western Asia, South East and finally, Southern Asia. We will take a look at each of these areas, the countries who make up these regions and the ingredients, flavours and influences that help shape it.

Western Asia:

(Arabian Peninsular, Iranian/Persian, Turkish and Israeli)

Arabian Peninsular

Situated North East of Africa and on the Arabian plate, the Arabian Peninsular is the largest in the world and consists of Yemen, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, plus parts of Jordan and Iraq. As you can imagine, the cuisine is rich and varied. Seafood plays a significant part in the diet of this vast region, usually eaten with rice. Historically, the area would have originally relied on a diet of dates, wheat, barley, rice and meat, with little variety, and with a heavy emphasis on yogurt products. The influence of the Romans, Persians, and laterly the Ottomans brought the Arabs a much more varied diet and as with most Asian countries, the culinary heritage can find its root in either Persian, Indian, or Chinese cuisine. It will come as no surprise, therefore, that the cuisine today incorporates Persian, Indian, Lebanese and Chinese cooking styles. Dishes are heavily dosed with spices, from hot sauces to every variety of pepper, to tea.


Iranian cuisine has recently become extremely popular in multicultural cities such as London, Los Angeles, Toronto etc. Influenced by neighbouring regions such Caucasian cuisine, Turkish, Levantine, Greek, Central Asian, and Russian cuisine, you will see combinations of rice dishes with meat (such as lamb, chicken, or fish), vegetables (such as onions and various herbs), and nuts. In fact, there are many varieties of rice in Iranian cuisine including gerde, domsia, champa, doodi (smoked rice), Lenjan (from Lenjan County), Tarom (from Tarom County), anbarbu, and others.

When talking about cuisines from around the world, there is none that encompasses such a vast area, with so many varied ingredients, flavours and national influences as Asian cusine.

As with its neighbouring countries, Iranian cuisine relies heavily on spices such as saffron, dried lime, cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley and are mixed and used in some special dishes.


Largely based around the Ottoman cuisine, Turkish food can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern and

Balkan cuisines. As with other national cuisines, the ingredients used in Turkish dishes depend on the region in which you are in. The Black Sea Region uses fish extensively, especially the Black Sea anchovy (hamsi) and includes maize dishes. Kebabs, mezes and dough-based desserts are typically found in the South East, while in the West, the abundance of olive trees sees a more mediterranean feel, with vegetables, herbs and fish being the staple diet. In the capital of Istanbul, the influence of Ottoman court cuisine is still popular today. A much lighter use of spices, a preference for rice over bulgur, and a wider availability of vegetable stews (türlü), eggplant, stuffed dolmas and fish are the order of the day.


Israeli cuisine is a true melting pot of influences. Falafel (deep-fried chickpea balls in pita) is still considered to be one of, if not the, most popular dish in Israel, although it is believed to originate from the Middle-East. The “Israeli salad” of cucumbers and tomatoes cut into small small pieces has undoubtedly come from the Mediterranean. No conversation with regards to Israeli cuisine would be complete without hummus. This chickpea paste is a staple in almost every Israeli home.

Eastern Asia:

(Chinese, Japanese and Korean)


As you would expect from a country as large as China, there are huge differences in the types of ingredients used in their cuisine. In the North, the cuisine relies primarily on hearty dishes of meaty and starchy foods. Most of the ingredients in this region are influenced by agricultural. Whether these are meat dishes, based on mutton, pork, beef, chicken, duck, and fish and served with root vegetables, or Inner Mongolian inspried dairy dishes. Central China sees the three regions of Sichuan, Chongqing and Hunan, each with ther own unique taste and influence. Sichuan Province, is famous for its particularly numbing and spicy taste resulting from liberal use of garlic and chilli peppers. Hunan cuisine is similar to Sichuan cuisine, but generally even spicier. Western China is influenced by the bordering Muslim and Tibetan nations. The region of Xinjiang is inhabited by many ethnic groups, with the food predominantly halal, due to most Xinjiang people being Muslims. Tibetan cuisine is a blend of flavours of Nepalese, Indian, and Sichuan cuisines due to Tibet's position neighbouring India, Nepal and Sichuan Province. Eastern China includes five of the famous eight cuisines of China. Cantonese tends to be mild. It focuses less on spices, but more on absolute freshness and flavour of ingredients. Most of its dishes use sweet sauces. Cantonese is the

food and drink

Kuku Sushi Bar and Robata most widely served style of Chinese cuisine in the world.

Tteokbokki, steamed and sliced rice cakes cooked with fish cakes.

Fujian cuisine is famous for its abundant ingredients from the sea and mountains. Ingredients of Jiangsu Cuisine mainly come from rivers, lakes, and the sea. Zhejiang cuisine is known for its elaborate preparation and varying techniques of cooking, such as sautĂŠing, stewing, steaming, and deep-frying. Finally, Anhui cuisine features wild ingredients from local mountain areas, leading to greater freshness and tenderness.

Also popular is the Korean barbecue "pulgoki", which is meat marinated in a sauce made with soy sauce, garlic, sugar ,sesame oil ,and other seasonings, and cooked over a fire.

Finally, Southern Chinese cuisine is characterised by lots of preserved foods, particularly pickled vegetables and tofu, which give it its sour flavour. The mountainous areas are populated with poor farmers who need to prevent wastage.



Hindu and Muslim are the two dominate religions of India and their cooking styles and diversity of ingredients have helped shape Indian cuisine. The Hindu vegetarian culture is widely practiced, while the Muslim tradition is the most dominate in the cooking of meats. Rich Kormas (curry), and nargisi kaftas (meatballs), the biryani (a layered rice and meat dish), rogan josh, and tandoori (prepared in a clay oven) are massively popular contributions made by Muslim settlers.

Sushi and sashami are two of the most popular food types offered in Japanese cuisine. Each uses a lot of fresh fish and rice, the most abundant ingredients in Japan. As with China, Japanese cuisine is divided into distinct geographic regions, each of which has developed its own unique culinary traditions. For example, the political centre of Tokyo has been one of the major influences in Japanese cooking. You will find nigiri-zushi, the most popular sushi today, originated as a fast-food dish in Tokyo. Tempura, deep frying seafood and vegetables is prominent, as is Soba noodles (buckwheat noodles) with it's thick dipping sauce. Popular cooking styles in Japan include,Teriyaki - in which foods are broiled or grilled while being basted in a sauce made out of soy sauce, mirin and sugar.


Korean foods are typified by their use of rice, vegetable and meats cooked in a wide variety of sauces, sides and spices. Some of Korea's most popular dishes include; Kimchi, a fermented and spiced vegetable dish is served with virtually every meal. Seolleongtang, a traditional hot Korean soup made from ox bones, ox meat and briskets, this is a is a local dish of Seoul, often seasoned with salt, ground black pepper, chopped green onions, or minced garlic.

Southern Asia:

(Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan and Nepalese)

With over 5000 years of history, India has welcomed settlers from across the world creating a population that reaches over 1.3 billion. Each region and religion make up a cuisine as diverse as its people.

Largely rice based, the Southern region sees rice pancakes, rice cakes and fermented rice as popular dishes. Coconut is also a staple of the Southern region and is the culinary mascot of Kerala. In the North, the Moghuls who ruled for three centuries, have heavily influenced the regions cuisine. Rich gravies, saffron, pureed nuts and creams were all influenced by the Moghuls. The Western states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Goa all have unique food experiences. Gujarats are predominately vegetarian and is celebrated for being one of the best places to eat vegetarian food. Maharashtra is home to the city of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay). With its five-star hotels and restaurants this city is the home of modern cuisine. Finally, the Eastern states of West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar, and Jharkhand. The more familiar Bengali cuisine can be described as delicate and subtle, with fish and rice at the centre of their diet.


It is highly likely that, without knowing it, you have already eaten Bangladeshi food. Boardering the Indian state of West Bengal, Bangladesh shares many cultural ties with its neighbour. Some of the most common are language, history and of course, food. Bangladeshi cuisine is South Asian in nature. However, the abundance of fish and its employment of a variety of often fiery pastes made from ground roots, spices and chillies make it unique. It is rumoured that some Bangladeshi dishes are so hot that even visiting Indian's can't handle the heat. It is not surprising, that a country full of rivers should rely heavily on fish as part of its diet, in fact, that is not uncommon in any country that shares a similar geology. However, the additional use of pastes that include ginger, garlic, red chilli peppers, turmeric, onion, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, or mustard seed give it a unique taste. Add into the equation mixed vegetables such as carrots, potatoes and cauliflower and you have a typical Maach Bhuna (Fish Bhuna).

Sri Lankan

Sri Lankan food offers a vivid array of flavour combinations. Many people, on first encounter, will make the connection with India, as Sri Lanka is located southeast of its southern tip. But unlike Indian cuisine, dishes on this island nation have their own spin. Curries, although varied and many, tend to be thinner an more heavily spiced than many Indian versions, and the cuisine is more inclusive of non-native ingredients, brought by international trade moving through the island. Traditional Sri Lankan curries pack a real punch and therefore rice is an ever-present antidote to these big flavours. Staple ingredients in Sri Lankan cuisine are rice, coconut, native tropical fruits and vegetables. The island grows some 15 varieties of rice, down from 280 just 50 years ago, and 400 in times before that.


Like many other Asian countries, Nepalese cuisine relies heavily on the influence of its neighbours, while proud of its own gastronomic history.


food and drink

All images courtesy of Supha's Street Food Emporium Whilst Nepal does take heavy influences from its closest geographical companions such as India and China, the Nepalese diet is far healthier, relying less on using fats and more on chunky vegetables, lean meats, pickled ingredients and salads. Common ingredients found across Nepalese cuisine include lentils, potatoes, tomatoes, cumin, coriander, chilies, peppers, garlic and mustard oil. Rice is the obvious staple for many Nepalese dishes, just like many other Asian countries. The fried rice dish of Pulao (also know as Pilaf and Pilau) can be eaten on its own or with added vegetables and accompany with yoghurt (Dahl) and papadoms, you get a dish that's popular with locals and visitors alike.

South Eastern Asia:

(Vietnamese, Malaysian and Thai)


Located with China to its North, Laos and Cambodia to the West and the South China Sea to the East, its 3000 km coastline runs from the Hanoi to the North, through its rugged central highlands down to Ho Chi Min City in the South. The cuisine relies on a balance of salty, sweet, sour and hot flavours – similar to Thai and especially with its use of fish sauce and cane sugar. The North is heavily influenced by China, with many stir-fries and noodle-based soups. The further South you go, the sweeter Vietnamese cuisine becomes as influences from Thailand and Cambodia take hold. One of the

more interesting influences on Vietnamese food is French cuisine. Having witnessed French missionaries coming to Vietnam in the 18th century, their presence up to the early 1950's had a profound effect on the cuisine. Banh Mi is a crusty baguette filled with grilled pork, fish patties, sardines, chilli and pickled vegetables. The French also left their mark with a number of meat broths, called Pho.


Once described as 'sunshine on a plate', Malaysian cuisine, like most Asian countries, has been influenced by Thai, Chinese, Indonesian and Indian cuisine. Although chilli based, Malaysian food is not overly hot. Malay dishes combine the traditional Southeast Asian herbs and spices with those from Indian, the Middle East and China, leading to fragrant combinations of coriander and cumin, Add in lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, cardamom, star anise and fenugreek and you have the basis of a Malay curry. Nasi lemak, a steamed rice dish with coconut milk and served with dried anchovies, peanuts, hardboiled eggs, dried shrimp, cucumber and sambal, is considered Malaysia’s national dish. Adding a choice of curries or meat stew it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner and is known as rendang.


The secret to Thai food is a balance of five flavours: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy. As well as the inclusion of many herbs and spices, fish sauce is often used in a similar way to how we use salt.

It might be hard to believe, but Thai food used to be a lot more spicy than it is now, but over the years it was toned down, and fewer and less spices were used in Thai curries, while the use of fresh herbs, such as lemon grass and galangal, increased. Thai food, like many others, relies on its climate and geography for its influences. In the North, the cooler mountainous climate means there is a lager variety of vegetables than in other regional Thai cuisines, and roots and herbs have a strong presence. There are many sour and bitter flavours, especially apparent in soups. People of the North prefer glutinous rice to white rice, rolling it into balls with their hands, and dipping into dishes and sauces. Also, the influence of neighbouring Myanmar and Laos is strong, with curried broths with egg noodles and chicken pork or beef being popular. Central Thailand is a vast checkerboard of paddy fields, orchards and vegetable gardens, fed by the rivers and streams that make up this delta-like landscape. The best rice in the country is grown in the Central region, with Jasmin rice being a major Thai export. Three main curries are also cooked in the region, including the famous Green Thai Curry. As famous, Tom Yam, a hot and sour soup comes from the region and you will also wee many dishes containing coconut milk, egg and seafood. It is impossible to ignore the Chinese influence in the Central region, with noodle dishes, soups and ground pork at the fore. The area of the North East lies on the other side of the Mekong River and is therefore detached from the influence of Bangkok. Here, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnamese cuisine plays a dominant part. Glutinouse rice dishes, pickles and herbs, plus an abundance of grilling and roasting make this regions cuisine unique. In order to liven up a dish, the North Eastern region isn't shy of adding in a few chillis! Finally, the South - Influenced by Malaysia and India. The warm seas produce an abundance of fish, big lobsters, crabs, mussels squid, prawns and scallops. Simply steamed of fried with noodles or rice, the Southern region will add Cashew nuts and pineapples to their dishes as they grow in great volume. Oh, and don't forget the very hot chilli.

Place one tortilla on top of the sauce in the pan, then spread half of the cheese sauce on top of the tortilla.

25g of vegetarian Cheddar cheese, grated 4 tbsp double cream Pinch of salt and pepper 3 tbsp soured cream

Top with the remaining vegetable sauce from the bowl. Then place your second tortilla on top, followed by the rest of the cheese sauce.

You will also need:

2 flour tortillas 100g of mixed vegetarian Cheddar cheese and vegetarian Red Leicester cheese, grated

To serve:

1 ripe avocado, de-stoned, scooped out (sliced) ½ small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced 1 fresh red chilli, sliced Small bunch fresh coriander, roughly chopped


1. In a large frying pan, heat up the oil over a medium heat and add in the onion and carrot. Cook for 5 minutes until the onions start to soften.

6. Place the pan under a grill for a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted. 7. Serve from the pan, topped with avocado, red onion, the sliced chilli and fresh coriander.

CHOCOLATE SALTED CARAMEL TART with peanut butter sorbet

This has become something of a classic at the restaurant, it is so simple to look at, the flavours so familiar, but nothing can prepare you for the intensity and clarity of the flavours. Using as few ingredients as possible in each element allows the purity of the ingredients to shine through – the peanuts taste purely of peanuts, the chocolate and caramel exactly of that. Just remember that the sorbet and the tart need four to five hours to set.

Richard Buckley


70g (2½oz/1/3 cup) caster (superfine) sugar 0.5g (scant ¼ tsp) xanthan gum 175ml (6fl oz/¾ cup) cold water 175ml (6fl oz/¾ cup) glucose syrup 150g (5½oz) unsweetened crunchy peanut butter 25ml (1fl oz/5 tsp) brandy


90g (3oz/¾ cup) plain (all-purpose) flour 10g (¼oz/1¼ tbsp) cornflour (cornstarch) 20g (¾oz/12/3 tbsp) caster (superfine) sugar pinch of salt 30ml (1fl oz/2 tbsp) extra virgin olive oil 20ml (4 tsp) cold water 25g (1oz) dark chocolate, 53% cocoa solids


400g (14oz) dark chocolate, 53% cocoa solids, finely chopped or coarsely grated 7g (¼oz/1¼ tsp) sea salt 125g (4½oz/2/3 cup) caster (superfine) sugar 300ml (10fl oz/1¼ cups) cold water

To serve

4 tsp cocoa nibs


Make the sorbet first. Mix the sugar and xanthan together. Place the measured water in a large saucepan, then whisk in the sugar and xanthan. Add the glucose syrup and peanut butter and bring to the boil. Immediately remove from the heat and add the brandy. Allow the sorbet to cool slightly, then put into an ice-cream machine and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before freezing. Preheat the oven to (fan) 160°C/180°C/350°F/ gas mark 4. Mix all the ingredients for the tart base together, except for the dark chocolate, in a large bowl to form a dough. Place the dough between 2 sheets of baking parchment and roll it out until 1mm thick (very thin). Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Put the dough on a large baking tray (sheet), leaving the top sheet of baking parchment on, and bake for 15–25 minutes until just crisp. Remove from the oven and remove the baking parchment. While still hot, place the base of a 21cm (8-inch) springform cake tin (pan) onto the pastry and cut round it. Return the base to the springform tin (pan) and line with baking parchment. Fit the cut pastry base inside.

Place the dark chocolate for the tart base in a bain-marie (see box, below) and melt gently. Spread evenly over the pastry base. Make the tart filling. Place the chocolate and salt in an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Put the sugar into a small, heavy-based saucepan and gently melt until it becomes a dark caramel. Add the water and simmer until the sugar has melted. Weigh out 250g (9oz) of the boiling caramel and pour over the chocolate and salt in the electric mixer. Whisk on the lowest speed until the temperature has reduced to 27°C/80°F. Pour the mix onto the base and put in the fridge for 4–5 hours to set. Remove the chocolate tart from the fridge and from the tin (pan) – use a blowtorch to gently heat the outside if necessary. Cut into slices and place 1 slice on each plate. Place 1 tsp of cocoa nibs next to the tart and top with a quenelle of sorbet. Serves 4 Recipe taken from 'Plants Taste Better' by Richard Buckley.

SMOKED CASHEW CROQUETAS with port-glazed red beetroot (beets) and orange emulsion

Croquetas are a traditional Spanish tapas made from a thick white sauce, usually with added ham, which are breaded and deep fried so the outside is crisp and the inside is melting and delicious. This dish makes use of the magical qualities of cashew nuts to create a similar effect, but with only the one ingredient. Cashews contain a lot of natural starches and fats and so, once puréed, they can fulfil the role of the roux, milk and cheese in the recipe all on their own. The full culinary potential of cashews is only just being realized – heat them up and wonderful things begin to happen. Put the watercress and red mustard frill in a small bowl and dress with a little olive oil. Pipe the croqueta mix in 5–6cm (2–2¼-inch) lengths onto the floured plate and carefully roll to coat them in the flour. Repeat until you have 8 perfect croquetas. With a knife, transfer them one at a time into the flour and water mix first and then into the breadcrumbs. Roll each one in the breadcrumbs, ensuring they are completely covered and then gently re-roll so you have a neat tube shape. Continue until all the mix is used.


300g (10½oz/21/3 cups) smoked cashew nuts, 750ml (26fl oz/3 cups) water, 10g (¼oz/1¾ tsp) sea salt, cayenne pepper, 200g (7oz/12/3 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour, 400g (14oz/32/3 cups) panko, breadcrumbs sunflower oil, for deep-fat frying

FOR THE GLAZED BEETROOT (BEETS) 6 round red beetroot (beets), 550ml (19fl oz/2¼ cups) water, 1 onion, finely sliced, 2 sticks of celery, sliced, 1 bay leaf, 20 black peppercorns, 100ml (3½fl oz/scant ½ cup) red wine, 125ml (4fl oz/½ cup) ruby port


2 oranges, 15g (½oz/1 tbsp) Dijon mustard, 5g (1/8oz/1 tsp) caster (superfine) sugar, 100ml (3½fl oz/scant ½ cup), rapeseed oil.


mixed toasted seeds (see below), handful of watercress, handful of red mustard frill, extra virgin olive oil


Prepare the smoked cashew nuts (see below), then add to a blender with 500ml (18fl oz/2 cups) of the water and the salt. Blend until very smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring all the time – as it comes to the boil it will thicken dramatically. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Add a small pinch of cayenne pepper and transfer to a small bowl. Cover with cling film (plastic wrap) in contact with the surface of the mix and place in the fridge to chill. Preheat the oven to (fan) 160°C/180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Make the mixed toasted seeds (see 3rd column).

Take a large piece of foil and wrap the beetroot (beets) and 50ml (2fl oz/scant ¼ cup) of the water tightly in it, making a watertight parcel. Put on a baking tray (sheet) and bake in the oven for 1 hour until soft, then leave to cool in the foil. Once cold, remove from the foil and transfer any liquid into a saucepan. Rub the skin from the beetroot (beets) and put the skin into the saucepan. Line a chopping board with 4 sheets of cling film (plastic wrap) to stop staining, and use plastic gloves. Cut the top and bottom from each beetroot (beet), then cut each one into 1cm (½-inch) thick slices. You need 20 slices. Using a vegetable peeler, trim the edges from each disc to round it off neatly. Set aside. Add the beetroot (beet) offcuts to the saucepan with the skin, along with the onion, celery, bay leaf, peppercorns and the rest of the measured water (500ml/17fl oz/ 2 cups). Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, allow to cool completely, then strain and return 200ml (7fl oz/generous ¾ cup) of the beetroot (beet) stock to a clean saucepan. Boil the stock rapidly to reduce until it begins to thicken noticeably, almost completely evaporating. Add the red wine and port and simmer to reduce by three-quarters. Meanwhile, make the orange emulsion. Finely grate the zest from the oranges and then juice the oranges. Check you have 200ml (7fl oz/ generous ¾ cup), and add a little more if necessary. Put the zest and juice into a small saucepan and simmer gently until reduced by half. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely, then add the mustard and sugar and mix to combine. Using a stick blender to emulsify, slowly add the rapeseed oil and blend until it is thick and glossy. This will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge. Finish the croquetas. Put half the flour onto a plate and the other half into a large bowl. Whisk the remaining measured water (250ml/8fl oz/1 cup) into the bowl to form a thin batter. Place the breadcrumbs on a plate. Transfer the croquetas mix to a piping bag fitted with a 2cm (¾-inch) round nozzle (tip). Prepare your deep-fat fryer.

Deep-fry the croquetas, in batches if necessary, until crispy and golden brown, then drain on kitchen (paper) towel. At the same time, put the beetroot (beet) discs into a large frying pan (skillet) and add the port glaze. Bring the glaze to a rapid boil and reduce it down until it forms a sticky shiny glaze. Turn the beetroot (beets) over in the glaze to make sure they are well covered – if the glaze is too thick, add a tiny splash of water. Place 3 or 4 beetroot (beets) slices and 2 croquetas on each of 4 large plates. Drizzle the orange emulsion around the plate (remember it is a strong flavour). Scatter the dressed watercress and red mustard frill over each plate and then sprinkle with the toasted seeds.

Smoked cashew nuts

Smoke and nuts is a fantastic modern flavour. Use these to bring a wonderful interest to any plate. Makes: 100g (3½oz) 100g (3½oz/¾ cup) blanched cashew nuts Put 1 tablespoon of hickory chips into a stove-top smoker. Line the top grate with foil to prevent the nuts from escaping and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Smoke the nuts until they have a pronounced smoky flavour. Remove from the smoker and leave to cool. These will keep for 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Mixed Toasted Seeds

This makes enough for about 10 meals, although you can easily just eat them all without really meaning to straight from the oven – they’re very moreish. Makes: 1 small jar 20g (¾oz/2½ tbsp) sunflower seeds 5g (1/8oz/½ tbsp) poppy seeds 10g (¼oz/4 tsp) sesame seeds 10g (¼oz/1 tbsp) flax seeds 10g (¼oz/4 tsp) hemp seeds ½ tsp extra virgin olive oil 1g (scant ¼ tsp) sea salt, finely ground Preheat the oven to (fan) 160ºC/180ºC/350ºF/ gas mark 4. Mix all the seeds together with the oil on a baking tray (sheet) and roast for 5 minutes until just golden. Sprinkle with the salt and allow to cool. These can be kept in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Serves 8 - 10

School admissions and handy tips

Each school or local Education Authority (LEA) will draw up an admission criteria to decide which children get places in their school. These criteria are different for each school, so you need to do a little bit of homework to make sure you are getting the school of choice. Some handy tips on selecting the right school for your child:

To find out details of each of the LEA primary schools in the Bath and North East Somerset region, visit:

Do your research: Ofsted reports aren't everything. Yes, they can build up a picture of policies and grades but they can also show you how a school can 'perform' over a few days. Talk to parents, talk to children who are currently attending a particular school you are interested in. Location: Schools generally select pupils according to distance, so concentrate on schools reasonably near your home (unless you're applying for a particular faith or independent school or if you are applying under particular health grounds/needs). Pay the schools a visit: As mentioned earlier, Ofsted reports are all well and good but there is no substitute for getting a real feel for each school. This is something that we recommend whether you are joining a primary, secondary school or college. Gauge what the children are doing on your arrival, do they look happy, engaged, interested? Make sure you meet the headmaster/ mistress. Unless there is a very good reason, the head of the school should meet you to talk to you about how great their school is. They are the face of the school and should be its greatest advocate. Be prepared to ask questions, even difficult ones such as what disciplinary issues have their been. What is the schools policy on bullying? Most importantly, will my child be happy?. Will this school give my child the room to grow and develop academically and socially? If the answer is yes to each of these questions, you have probably got the right school for your child.

Thinking of selling this Spring? Top tips to get your property noticed. As low interest rates continue to make it a buyers market, those deciding to put their property up for sale may feel that prospective buyers will be cueing up outside the door to buy. Despite the fact that hosuing stock is low at present, sellers will still want to attract the best price for their property, therefore preparing your home for sale is as important now than ever. It’s a well-known fact that properties receive the most interest during the first two weeks, so it’s crucial that you have everything in order for these initial viewings.

First impression count!

We've all heard the saying 'never judge a book by its cover', but when it comes to a new home, many potential buyers will make an immediate decision based on the exterior. Ensuring your property has kerb appeal is one of the most important steps in preparing to sell your home. Remove any unsightly items from view, touch up any areas that need a lick of paint and make the garden an area that buyers can see themselves enjoying.

Cosmetic changes are as good as big ones Unless your home drastically needs a new bedroom, bathroom or kitchen in order to get a sale, then focus on cosmetic changes. Financially, this will make more sense than blowing any potential profit on a complete renovation. As with the outside, repaint any stained walls, fix taps and loose door handles, new cushions and curtains that won't break the bank are all easy on the eye for prospective

buyers. Remember, the more a buyer feels they need to spend on a new home, the more they will take off your asking price.

Potential buyers will view many properties before making a decision. It is therefore essential that your property stands out from the crowd. Create space

You can be creative in making space in your home. Whether it’s the bathroom, a bedroom or the hallway, a cleverly placed mirror and some strategic lighting can give the impression that rooms are larger and, make the property more appealing to prospective buyers.

Make buyers feel at home

The more a buyer can see themselves living in your home, the easier it is to sell. Make sure each room looks like it is used. Place furniture into vacant rooms, such as desks and a bed. Set the dining table so that the buyer can picture themselves eating with their family. All these actions are helping the buyer picture themselves living in your home.

Stand out from the crowd

Potential buyers will view many properties before making a decision. It is therefore essential that your property stands out from the crowd. It’s sometimes the simplest touches that turn a house into a home and make your property more memorable,

“What is the market like at the moment”. Whether from sellers on valuations or buyers on viewings, everyone wants an indication of which way the wind is blowing property wise.

UK house sellers lose £ 10,000 on their asking price, says Rightmove Is your household going to be at risk now mortgage support benefit has been axed? The Government have axed the mortgage support benefit which has been provided to low income households since 1948. Support for mortgage interest (SMI) helps those on income related benefits (i.e. pension credit, income support and jobseekers allowance) pay the interest on their mortgage. The funds are sent directly from Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to the mortgage lender.

The Government backed loan does not have to be paid back, although the homeowners can make voluntary repayments if they can afford to. If the property is inherited by someone else, they will be required to repay the loan from any extra available equity if/when the property is sold. If there isn’t enough equity to cover the cost of the loan, it will be written off.

There is a concern that this change may result in tens of thousands of people, many of whom are pensioners, ending up with two mortgages on their property. According to the Government, there are about 124,000 people receiving SMI at a cost of £205 million a year to the taxpayers. Those in favour of the change argue that it’s not the taxpayer’s obligation to subsidise people’s mortgages when many of them struggle to afford the repayments on their own home. The change was announced in 2015 when the Government found the current set-up to be unsustainable and announced plans to stop paying SMI in April 2018. Instead of paying SMI, homeowners will be able to secure a state based loan against the mortgaged property. The loans will function much the same as the SMI but with interest being added every month to the total amount owed.

According to a recent survey by Rightmove, the average UK house seller gets £ 10,000 less than their initial asking price, with a third of sellers already having to reduce the original rate.

A sensible pricing strategy from the outset could result in a quicker sale and delay the inevitable price reduction. Although the perceived loss can seem quite large, the difference between final listed asking prices and agreed sale figures has increased from 2.8 per cent to 3.3 per cent over the past two years. The survey also concluded that sellers achieve 96.7% of the final asking price. Therefore, a sensible pricing strategy from the outset could result in a quicker sale and delay the inevitable price reduction; which can play into the hands of the buyer and not the seller.

Almost half of those who receive SMI are of retirement age and many have interest only mortgages. There is a concern that this change may result in tens of thousands of people, many of whom are pensioners, ending up with two mortgages on their property.

Although the realisation of 97.6% would suggest a relatively narrow gap between asking and final selling prices, the cuts already made to the original price means the real gap between what homes went on the market for and then eventually sold for is much greater.

The DWP have countered this by saying; “Over time, someone’s house is likely to increase in value so it’s reasonable that anyone who has received financial help towards their mortgage should be asked to pay that back if there is available equity when the property is sold.”

A couple of areas that we should also consider, when looking at these figures are: 1, new list (asking) prices hit another record high of £305,732 in the month to mid-April. 2, these figures are just an 'average' and many properties across the UK sold at the original adking price, or een over in sought-after locations.

Buy new, not only will you save money, but you’ll also save the environment! According to the House Builders Federation, new build homes are 50% cheaper to run than their Victorian equivalents. New homes adhere to stricter energy efficiency legislation and developers of today are much more mindful of the impact their developments will have on the environment.

Emissions are reduced… By using recyclable materials on the home, the sustainable builds have a much smaller carbon footprint than their predecessors.

Chancellor reports 60,000 first time buyers have already benefited from the stamp duty exemption! It was one of the marquee announcements in Chancellor, Phillip Hammond's Autumn Budget of 2017, a stamp duty land tax relief for firsttime buyers on purchases up to £300,000 with the existing rate of 5% applying to properties between £300,000 and £500,000 Since 22 November 2017, The Chancellor revealed that 60,000 first time buyers have now benefited from the stamp duty exemption. As mentioned, under the new rules, first time buyers purchasing homes under the value of £300,000 are exempt from paying stamp duty and, those who are purchasing in London and other expensive areas, will not pay tax on the first £300,000 of their purchase on properties up to the value of £500,000.

The importance of helping First time buyers get their first home is incredibly important to the overall housing market. It's only by making new homes purchases more achievable, that allows existing homes owners to sell up and take their next step.

A recent report by the Halifax at the start of the year, showed a 6% annual increase on the number of first time buyers making a purchase – meaning the number of first time buyers has reached a ten year high.

Prime Minister, Theresa May, has made a promise to the electorate that she would take “personal charge” of solving Britain's housing crisis and with low mortgage rates, high employment, incentives like the Help to Buy scheme, as well as the stamp duty exemption, young people are finding it easier to get on the property ladder.

On announcing the new policy back in November, the Government predicted that the change to stamp duty would benefit up to 95% of first time buyers. If these early indictions are anything to go by, it is clear that it has already had a positive impact on the housing market.

New homes adhere to stricter energy efficiency legislation and developers of today are much more mindful of the impact their developments will have on the environment. Fuel bills are too… Not only are doors and windows in new builds more robust meaning the house is better insulated and requires less heating. Plumbing is also more efficient, with dual flush toilets reducing water bills significantly. And, let’s not forget about energy efficient lighting and the maximisation of natural light to reduce the amount of artificial light needed, making yet another saving on home owners’ utility bills.

Surroundings encourage a greener lifestyle… Most developments include bicycle storage space and are often close to public transport links - meaning you don’t need to use a car to get around, reducing traffic and pollution in the surrounding area. To not only provide enjoyable communal spaces for residents, but to also cater for the wildlife, many development also feature green space and/or nature reserves ensuring the environment is taken care of.
