:Inverness Old Town Art: IOTA public art projects are percolating away and currently hitting the Highlands in different ways: intriguing entrances appearing at the Victorian Market, MIKE INGLIS’ artwork completed on Crown Wall, new innovative partnership launched in association with THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR SCOTLAND at Culloden Battlefield with three artists (CATHERINE BERTOLA and ROGER&REID) appointed to develop ideas and build relationships within the local community.  

The Conch [Sound Studio] by WALKER & BROMWICH has taken to the road after its initial launch at the Housing Expo and has been recently spotted at the harbour in Caithness. Artist, GEORGINA PORTEOUS (The Conch’s Guardian) has been interviewing people as it moves from location to location and is an enthusiastic advocate for the impact its making:  

 “It’s been a joy to see how people have come together with thoughtful conversations happening inside the Conch”   Conversations recorded have been staggeringly diverse both in content & location; contributions have been made by international surfer dudes, nuclear energy commentators, community activists, professional dancers & choreographers and local residents around the Highlands.  

THE CONCH [Sound Studio] continues its voyage and is coming to numerous places in & around Nairn (Health Centre), Culloden and Inverness from MONDAY 16th May to FRIDAY 27th May.   Please check out the IOTA website for specific times or phone Susan Christie on 01463-724383. www.invernessoldtownart.co.uk

Culloden Project & The Conch commissions are partnerships between IOTA and Highland Council and The National Trust for Scotland,  funded through the Creative Scotland Rural Innovation Fund.

CLOCKWORK @ Universal Hall, Findhorn, Wed 08 Jun @ Eden Court OneTouch, Fri 10& Sat 11 Jun A collaboration between Visible Fictions and Scottish Opera, adapting best-selling author Philip Pullman’s short story about a character called Fritz telling a magical story to the townsfolk of Glockenheim as they’re gathered around a roaring fire, safe from the winter weather outside. Pretty much like any night in Inverness then. Apart from the fact that in this story, a tale of “kings and queens and clockwork machines”, past meets present, man merges with machine and fiction becomes reality. Visible Fictions can be relied on for hugely entertaining productions as their most recent Shopping For Shoes showed and this looks like being every bit as rewarding.

GoNORTH @ Various venues, Inverness, Thu 09–Fri 10 June One of the few times in the year when the various disparate venues around the city stop getting all quietly grumpy with each other and embrace the capacity of the place to celebrate enthusiastic creativity is during GoNorth. There’s something life-affirming about going from witnessing Glasgow indie bods in one place to stumbling across punks from the Faroe Islands down the road and ending up dancing to pan-global funksters, so we’re eager to know what to expect from this year’s event, which has ex-Undertone (and vociferous spokesman for digital rights) FEARGAL SHARKEY as keynote speaker. This year they’re not going to be present at RockNess, deciding instead to tour BELLADRUM, WICKERMAN, LOOPALLU and SUMMER IN THE CITY, but before that there’ll be the smorgasbord of new acts popping up at venues all around town. We’d love to tell you exactly who, but for now they’re keeping all under wraps, so check out www.whatsoninverness. com or the GoNorth website at gonorth.biz for all the latest updates - or just scan this QR for line-up!

RUN !!!

Plenty of opportunities to pound the Great Outdoors this

month with running events aplenty. Here’s the best of the bunch:

BENROMACH 10K @ Benromach Distillery, Forres, Sat 07 May

Part of the Northern Scot series, this takes place on a flat course starting and beginning at the distillery. For more details and registration go to forresharriers.org.uk

CULBIN FOREST RUN, @ Culbin Forest by Forres, Wed 18 May

This is the 13th staging of the Culbin Forest Run – a 5-mile trail run in one of Scotland’s finest forests. This race first came about in 1999 when the villagers of Dyke were raising money to build the new village hall that was eventually opened in 2001. The first run was such a success that within 3 years, two other village halls, and more recently Forres Guides, came together to help stage the Moray Forest Runs Series, with other races taking place at Roseisle, Quarrelwood and Monaughty. The series has gone from strength to strength, adding junior races and establishing itself as an important community fund raiser as well as an enjoyable festival of trail running for all ages. Registration will be open from 6 pm. The Under 12s race will start at 6.45pm.The Under 16s race will start alongside the 5-mile race at 7.15pm. The flat-rate entry fee is £4 which you can pay online at www.fabian4.co.uk. Cheques for any postal entries should be made payable to Dyke & District Hall and you can also pay cash on the day. There is no additional levy for unattached runners. forresharriers.org.uk

BEN AIGAN HILL RACE @ Fiddich Park, Craigellachie, Wed 25 May

If you want something a bit more challenging than flat roads then how about a bit of hill racing? This is a 6.4K run with a climb of 326m. Just the thing for working those hamstrings. scottishhillracing.co.uk

ELGIN STREET MARATHON @ Elgin City Centre, Sun 05 Jun

The eleventh Street Marathon that they’re calling the “Marafun”. Do you see what they’ve done there? And you don’t have to run the whole 26 miles because it’s a relay event for teams of five. Each runner does eight circuits (5.2 miles) and runners of all abilities are welcome. Each team is asked to pledge £150. The afternoon will also feature stalls, displays, musical entertainment, new and classic cars and “the popular show and shine event”, which sounds intriguing. elginrotary.co.uk

Their most recent Universal hall show was recorded for their marvellous En Vivo En El Norte album, so this is something of a triumphant homecoming. 19

WOMEN’S PEROGATIVE: Tattoos - From The Margins To The Mainstream

from Lisa McGougan at 2 Tone Tattoos For centuries, the tattoo industry has been dominated by men – for both the “giver” and the “taker”, if you will. Body art has certainly undergone a modern renaissance and some of the best artists in the world are now female. The whole field of tattoos for women is growing at a tremendous rate. If you think back even 20 years ago tattoos for women were not all that popular and most of the women getting them were keeping them covered up. Nowadays almost 50 percent of all tattoos are being done on women, many of whom are counsellors, nurses, doctors, lawyers and business managers. Times have definitely changed and tattoo designs have really advanced at a tremendous rate. Today’s tattoos have more brilliant colours, finer line work and are a far cry from your grandfather’s Hawaiian girl tattoo on his forearm. With sexy female celebrities and models sporting tattoos in abundance, women with tattoos are no longer a rarity. Naturally, as tattoos for women are becoming increasingly more prevalent in modern society, they are becoming more socially acceptable as well. > continued > It used to be that women would get an occasional rose or name tattoos on their shoulder or some well hidden spot. However with current fashion trends there are tons of cute and classy designs for women out there and women are now getting tattoos at an amazing rate and placing them in far more visible places.

20

It appears in a lot of cases that women get tattoos when they’ve experienced some kind of major life change. Those changes can range from the death of a loved one to marriage to childbirth or a new job. Sometimes tattoos are also used to cover up scars and other permanent blemishes So what are the most popular tattoos for women? : Stars, fairies, children’s names, flowers and animals. Dolphins were the most popular tattoos for women, in around 2003 but every year demand for a particular tattoo design changes. And of course it goes without saying; women have a very high tolerance to pain!!!!!!


Making The Most Of 2:

Massage:

BALANCING OUR DAILY STRESSFUL LIVES...

As we go through life our posture changes. As children we have perfect posture but as we grow into adulthood most of us become a little round shouldered from sitting behind the steering wheel of a vehicle, using a computer or turning into couch potatoes on the sofa in the evening. This change in posture not only creates aches and pains in our muscles but can make us look older than we actually are. One of the ways to reduce this is by regular massage. But there are so many different types of massage - how do you know which one is right for you? A Swedish body massage corrects posture problems by easing congestion out of the muscles and aligning the body from head to toe, helping us

keep that perfect posture and retaining a youthful appearance. A remedial or sports massage can work on those really achey spots in a more focused way, reaching the direct fibres which can be problematic. An Indian Head Massage can ease tension which has built up around the shoulders, neck and head and relaxes the facial muscles which always become tense when a person is concentrating or under stress. It can also be very useful for tension headaches and migraines. A natural facial massage will relax the facial muscles and reduce the chances of deep wrinkles forming later on in life and is much more enjoyable than Botox or a surgical face lift. The use of essential oils can allow the massage to be tailored even more to your

specific needs with certain oils able to ease emotions which have maybe been building up over a long period of time. All of these forms of massage will help you relax, have a good night’s sleep and release stress; on a physiological level they can deliver nutrients and remove toxins from our tissues while on a psychological level provide a sense of clarity and perspective. With so many benefits can we afford not use this drug-free, non invasive therapy to balance the busy lives which we lead today?

“The Imaginarium of Cookery”

JOHN AND THE GIANT BEANSTALK

Roast Rack of Lamb with Three Bean and Mint Salad The most difficult part of cooking a rack of lamb is taking the meat and trimming it to look like a lamb rack, which is called to “french” the lamb rack. The good news is that your butcher can do this for you! Watching him do it a few times is a great way to prevent mistakes that result during the learning process when you do it on your own in the future. So step 1 is to buy a rack already frenched.. When cooking a rack of lamb, always make sure you have enough lamb for your guests. Allow about 2 to 3 servings per rack, depending on the size of the rack. As your butcher frenches the rack, ask for verification that you’ll have enough for the guests. A cut above the rest for melting tenderness you cannot surpass a good rack of lamb. I strongly recommend that you buy from a quality butcher as you will not find in a supermarket. The flavour is all important and racks from a spring lamb hung for 3 weeks are prefect for this dish.

John McCruden, Chapter One, Forres

INGREDIENTS: 4 racks of Lamb trimmed by the butcher 150g Cannellini Beans 150g Black Turtle Beans 150G Soya Beans 200g Plum Tomatoes Seeded & Diced 50g Fresh Basil chopped 20g Fresh Mint chopped 1 dessert spoon Balsamic Vinegar 100ml Beef Stock 100g finely chopped White Onion 100g Rocket 200ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil 25g Butter Salt & Black Pepper METHOD: In a large non stick frying pan add 100ml extra virgin olive oil place the seasoned racks of lamb fat side down as to caramelize then turn on either side making sure the whole rack gets seared.

1EATING OUT:

The Review: IN THE PARK* LOCH NESS ROAD INVERNESS 01463 230512 Way back in January I predicted the return of the High Tea. With its traditions of dainty food, manners and quaintness, it can be more of an art form than a meal. Anyway, after much research (in the form of eating) and investigation, I discovered that what I had always called a ‘posh’ high tea was in fact a working class tradition of a fairly heavy meal served after 5pm at a high table. So the meal I was thinking of, with cucumber sandwiches, fine china and French fancies, was in fact a low tea or just plain old afternoon tea, typically served on a low table in the mid afternoon and thought to

be invented by the Duchess of Bedford in the mid 1800’s to stave off that ‘sinking feeling’ between meals – I believe she was rather a large lady... So what has all of this afternoon tea nonsense got to do with my lunchtime review? Well, I’ll tell you. As part of my research into the whole ‘high tea’ revival I happened upon a rather fantastic tea here at the *LOCH NESS COUNTRY HOUSE HOTEL and it really was a rather stand out, splendid affair. I thought people who can do such a spiffing job in the mid afternoon would surely be worth investigating earlier or later in the day. So that is what led me to their door – nestled as it is, quietly and elegantly, in it’s own secluded setting with lush lawns and sprawling

country views – for lunch. You would be hard pushed to know you were just yards from the busy A82 and a minute’s drive from the city. Since changing hands (and name, from Dunain Park Hotel) the interior has been beautifully transformed with the best combination of modern and classic. So, all the omens were good. The lunch time menu offers 2 courses for £9.95 or 3 courses for £12.95. Being tied to a lunchtime menu was not a problem as the choices were varied and interesting. Let me therefore, finally, get to the food. Firstly we were served with Fresh Baked Sun Dried Tomato Bread, served not only with butter but also a Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade – a nice touch and very more-

23


ish. Starters for me was a Pistachio Crusted Crottin of Goats Cheese sitting on a bed of Beetroot Pannacotta and a Red Pepper Couli, which was a superb and original affair. The goats cheese, was firm, rich and creamy, very fresh in flavour. Presentation was exceptional, as I hope you can tell from the pictures. A dash of avocado & mint couli, 3 drips of a sensational beetroot couli and a sweep of red pepper couli. It looked more like an artists palette than a plate of food. I was reluctant to spoil it but alas, the aroma was so darned good I just had to - and I was duly rewarded as each little splash and dash added to the overall effectiveness of the taste of this dish. The beetroot pannacotta was an absolute first for me – and I declared myself knocked out.

24

My dining companion chose a more subdued Homemade Courgette And Lemon Soup which was obviously more of a one dimensional dish but also one full of flavour. I was sceptical at first that courgette could provide anything other than a rather watery bland soup but this one was full bodied with layers of taste. The lemon added a fresh, light feel that countered the subtle courgette. Also on the starters menu was a choice of either a duck or salmon dish. My main course was Butternut Squash, Pine Nut & Basil Pithivier (a round, enclosed pie) with a Rich Butter Puff Pastry. This was served with a selection of flash roasted vegetables and a butternut puree. I hardly know where to begin. The puff pastry just melted in the mouth and

the fillings complimented it perfectly. Anything with pine nuts is always worth a look in my book and along with the fresh basil, it was a dream. The vegetables were an interesting selection of carrot, asparagus and artichoke. A dish that kept the interest up right the way through and had me wishing I could eat more of it than my stomach would allow for. Other choices on the mains menu were a chicken dish, scallops, steak or pork. My partner decided to test the chefs ingenuity (and waiting staff’s patience) by asking if they could come up with an additional vegetarian dish. This they did with aplomb. A Wild Mushroom Risotto was produced and though it is rather a standard vegetarian choice it was raised above the ordinary by the varied


selection of fresh mushrooms in the dish and the brilliant herb flavouring. The texture and consistency were faultless and to have produced it off menu was appreciated. Last but of course never least, there was the dessert menu to be addressed – but before we could decide on that we were served with a little predessert of Baileys Pannacotta – creamy and delicious and just a little bit exciting. My partner decided on the interesting sounding Dark Chocolate and Green Tea Mousse with Wisp Puff Pastry. The velvety smooth mousse came sandwiched in between 2 wafer thin, crisp pastry slices and the sweetness of the chocolate was tempered by the drops of Green Tea mousse which on its own could be a little challenging

but in context was brilliant. This dish also came with a delicate Pistachio Ice Cream. I couldn’t quite decide on which dessert to have so the very helpful server suggested they do a Taster Dish, where you can have a little bit of every dessert. What an absolutely marvellous idea, eh? Perfect for me, as I am known for being dissatisfied with my own choice, usually preferring everyone else’s dessert. In fact, why stop at doing this for desserts, why not life in general? You could be a teacher but also have a little go at being a racing driver and a park keeper. You can be happily married but also have a little go with Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie. A little bit of everything does you good and all that... However I’m not sure that this outrageous

dessert did DO me much good but it blooming well FELT good doing it! I can’t really say anything about it – just look at the picture and decide for yourself. It would be all I would eat for the rest of my life if I could get away with it.

So after this splendiferous lunch I am left with just 3 questions: !) With a lunch this fabulous and at such a great price why is this place not packed to the gills? 2) Why did I not know about it before?; and 3) Why am I telling all of you?

If I can’t get a table there next time, I’ll only have myself to blame. Total for 2 (exc. drinks) £25.90

Democratic Republic of Congo/France I 2010 86 mins (Lingala & French with subtitles) This sensitive and inspiring documentary follows the band, Staff Benda Bilili who were a huge sensation at WOMAD last year, on their remarkable journey from the streets of Kinshasa, Congo to international stardom. 'Benda Bilili' means 'see beyond', which has profound meaning for this group of musicians, who include five paraplegics and an able-bodied teenager who makes music from a tin can connected to a stick with a piece of nylon. Sun 29 19.00 I Tue 31 19.00

Director David Keating Starring Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle, Timothy Spall

FILM NOIR SEASON

Reminiscent of Local Hero, but infinitely more troubling, this gripping documentary tells the real-life (and ongoing) story of Shell UK's plans to lay a giant, high-pressure gas pipe through the town and fishing waters around Rossport, County Mayo. When the residents of Rossport stand up to oppose the project, the clashes between protestors and police as well as between the locals themselves, begs the question: what responsibility do government and big energy have to the communities they profit from?
