Relocating to Austria and Switzerland By Juerg Steffen, Chief Operating Officer, Henley & Partners

High-net-worth individuals are increasingly turning to relocation as a means of dissolving the barriers that affect their access to global business, financial, career, and lifestyle opportunities. The widespread search for greater freedom has resulted in an upsurge in global wealth migration, and this trend will only continue as regional and international volatility increase. But what is global wealth migration, and why are Austria and Switzerland at the top of the list?

G

lobal wealth migration is growing steadily, with approximately 95,000 millionaires migrating in 2017 — a significant rise from 82,000 in 2016 and 64,000 in 2015, according to the 2018 AfrAsia Bank Global Wealth Migration Review. For high-net-worth individuals, the traditional parameters of wealth are no longer a guaranteed safeguard against the risks attached to the 21st century, and the need for greater mobility, agility, and choice is more pressing than ever. Many wealthy families are migrating to more favorable jurisdictions in order to access superior economic and educational opportunities, higher standards of living, and lasting safety and security for their families.

One vehicle by which the wealthy are moving to other countries is investment migration. The proliferation of residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs in recent years is a testament to the growing relevance of such programs and to the immense value they bring, both to host countries, which receive significant foreign direct investment as a result of these programs, and to individuals, who gain the assurance that comes with having an additional passport or residence permit. For individuals who are looking into residence or citizenship in an alternative jurisdiction, Austria and Switzerland are undoubtedly two of the best countries to move to live and both countries have attractive investment migration options in place.

Relocating to Austria Austria is located at the heart of the European continent and is famed for its Alpine peaks and spectacular scenery. It offers a high standard of living, and its capital, Vienna, is an international center for art, culture, and history that ranked 1st on this year’s Economist Intelligence Unit Global Liveability Index. Vienna also ranked 1st on the 2018 Mercer Quality of Living Survey, for the ninth year in a row. Austria as a whole claimed the 10th spot on this year’s Henley & Partners – Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index, a ranking of all the nationalities in the world according to the level of internal and external opportunity they provide to those who hold them. Austrians enjoy exceedingly high levels of peace and stability and human development; they are able to settle anywhere in the EU and travel almost anywhere in the world. Indeed, ranked 5th on the 2018 Henley Passport Index, the Austrian passport provides visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 186 destinations, including Europe’s Schengen Area, the US, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, the UAE, and Australia. Vienna International Airport provides access to a dense network of European destinations as well as to strategic locations in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. With Austria being one of world’s wealthiest and most developed countries, and combining old-world charm with modern comfort and safety, it is no surprise that many people would choose to relocate permanently there. For those interested in relocation, the country offers both residence- and citizenship-by-investment options. Under the Austrian Residence Permit program, individuals of independent means, as well as those who qualify under the ‘Key Manager’ category, have the opportunity to become residents in this Schengen Area member country with minimal bureaucratic requirements. A residence permit is initially issued for one year and can then be renewed without hassle. After 10 years of legal residence, and in certain circumstances after six years, it is possible to apply for Austrian citizenship. Article 10 (6) of the Austrian Citizenship Act, moreover, states that the government can reward foreign persons with citizenship in the event of extraordinary merit. The latter may take various forms and can include capital contributions or other economic benefits brought to Austria, although citizenship is not granted on the basis of financial contribution alone. Foreign investors must make an exceptional contribution alongside their investment:

for example, bringing new technologies to the country or creating a substantial number of new jobs. In the recently released Global Residence and Citizenship Programs: 2018–2019 report, Austria’s residence-by-investment program claimed the top spot in the residence category, while its citizenship-by-investment offering ranked 3rd in the citizenship category.

Relocating to Switzerland Switzerland, a mountainous Central European country, is home to roughly 8.4 million people and has four national languages. It is a pleasant and peaceful European nation known for, among other things, its heritage of 26 cantons, which are the member states of the Swiss Confederacy.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

Historically, the nation has always maintained political neutrality, which has resulted in a highly stable socio-economic environment. The combination of the country’s rich cultural heritage and liberal social attitudes has given rise to one of the most independent and well-organized societies in the world. A large number of international organizations — including the International Red Cross, the World Trade Organization, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Labor Organization, and the World Health Organization — have their headquarters in Switzerland. Many leading international corporations are relocating their headquarters to Switzerland, too, as the country is business-friendly by tradition, and its 26 cantons offer companies a wide range of options and opportunities.


Switzerland is the unrivalled watchmaking capital of the world and is home to some of the finest, oldest, and most prestigious luxury watchmaking brands, among them Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Vacheron Constantin, which was founded in 1755. The country’s horological heritage was honored in 2009 with the declaration of the Alpine watch-making cities of La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle as World Heritage sites. In the 2018 Mercer Quality of Living Survey, three Swiss cities ranked among the top 15 in the world: Zurich (2nd place), Geneva (8th place), and Bern (14th place). On the 2018 Henley & Partners – Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index, Switzerland came in at 9th place, boasting a near-perfect score for human development.

The Swiss passport consistently performs well on the Henley Passport Index. Currently in 6th place globally, it has been in the top 10 since the index’s inception in 2006. Swiss passport-holders can access 185 destinations without a prior visa, including Europe’s Schengen Area, the US, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, the UAE, and Australia. Switzerland offers a top-tier residence program that is highly sought after. There are different types of residence categories in Switzerland, and a distinction is made between European Union or European Free Trade Association (EU/ EFTA) citizens and other foreign (non-EU/EFTA) citizens. For EU/EFTA citizens wanting to become residents of Switzerland, the only requirements are to either have

employment in Switzerland or be a person of independent financial means. Non-EU/EFTA citizens can obtain a residence permit through various means: on the basis of gainful employment, as retirees with pre-existing close ties to Switzerland, or as financially independent persons who, though not gainfully employed in Switzerland, pay considerable amounts in annual taxes.

Your guide to Swiss and Austrian relocation Henley & Partners recently published two comprehensive guides to Swiss and Austrian relocation: Relocation to Switzerland: An Introduction for High-Net-Worth Individuals and Entrepreneurs (3rd edition) and Relocation to Austria: An Introduction for High-Net-Worth Individuals and Entrepreneurs (2nd edition). The books cover a range of topics relevant to highnet-worth and entrepreneurial individuals interested in making the move to these remarkable countries, such as taxation, citizenship and residency, pension, banking and real estate. These relocation guides are intended as a ‘one-stop shop’ for wealthy and entrepreneurial individuals around the world, as well as for those who advise them, as they navigate the complex and multi-layered Swiss and Austrian relocation process. Following seven decades of rapid globalization, there is today greater international connectivity and mobility than ever before. With this globalized community comes a new generation of global citizens, whose identities are dynamic and fluid, and whose horizons are expansive. The books are aimed at precisely such an audience.

About Henley & Partners Henley & Partners is the global leader in residence and citizenship planning. Each year, hundreds of wealthy individuals and their advisors rely on the firm’s expertise and experience in this area. Henley & Partners also runs a highly successful government advisory practice that has raised more than USD 6 billion in foreign direct investment. The firm has been involved in strategic consulting and in the design, set-up, and operation of the world’s most successful residence and citizenship programs. henleyglobal.com

8 Tips on Buying Off-Plan in Spain By Raymundo Larraín Nesbitt, Director of Larraín Nesbitt Lawyers

H

ard data suggests we started a new expansionist super cycle in Spain on the 1Q 2018. Year-to-date (first six months), the market has expanded by double-digits in almost every region compared to the same period last year. ŸŸ Property prices in Spain (confirmed sales) jumped by almost 10% in the first quarter of 2018 according to the latest figures released in May by Spain’s Land Registrars Association. ŸŸ The overall number of house sales increased 23% yearon-year in January 2018 according to Spain’s National Statistics Bureau (INE). House sales figures grew incrementally for nine consecutive months. ŸŸ The construction sector in Spain has increased 6%

year-on-year on the 1Q 2018, following the latest figures released in June by Spain’s National Statistics Bureau (INE). This explosive surge in growth is unprecedented since the year 2001. What these three tantalizing figures translate into - without the esoterics - is that Spain has finally turned the corner in 2018 and is firmly set on the road to recovery. British buyers, traditionally Spain’s strongest market, still make the largest contingent of foreign buyers despite Brexit looming on the horizon. Northern Europeans, mainly Nordics and Belgians, tail closely in this new uncharted market. What is the driving force behind this burgeoning real estate recovery?

theaddressmagazine.com


After a decade in the doldrums, Spain’s real estate market is once again picking up the pace showing indelible signs of warming up, spearheaded by Madrid, Barcelona and key coastal resorts. The market seems to be staging a comeback in full swing which is a welcome respite. This can single-handedly be attributed to one key factor: rising rental yield. Spain overtook the US as the world’s second biggest tourist destination in 2017 with over 88 million tourists. Spain’s asking rental prices have been increasing YOY by double-digits over the last two years. Seasoned investors have taken note and are snapping up units with a view to letting them out to tourists. It is in this financial context that investors are showing increasing interest in the potential of buy-to-let properties in Spain. A burgeoning real estate market coupled with a consolidated tourism industry is luring investors to foray back into the market with a renewed sense of self-confidence.

Sound financial investment Asking rental prices and capital appreciation underpin any sound real estate investment. On both counts they have increased, making buying property in Spain a most attractive proposition. ŸŸ Asking rental prices soared by two digits year-on-year as reported by the financial press. The exact figure remains contentious, as some prestigious media, like El Pais daily, quote a 21% annual increase whilst others, such as El Mundo daily, estimate the national average rental increase to be at 10.2%. In any case, minutiae aside, it is a moot point as the consensus is clear and unanimous that we are witnessing a two-digit rental growth in asking rental prices year-on-year. ŸŸ Capital appreciation is quickly catching up with the above figures. After having reached all-time lows in 2011, properties in Spain are gradually picking up the pace seven years on (abetted by historic ultra-low interest rates which translate into cheap mortgages). There is a reported two-digit year-on-year gain across the board. The recovery is being led by exclusive coastal areas, with prime beachfront locations, as well as by large Spanish cities, such as Madrid (17%), Palma de Mallorca (15%) and Barcelona (11%). Some bold economists and credit rating agencies (Fitch) are even predicting the start of a new property bubble. The average rental yield in Spain can be expected at 5% pa (dependent on location). If to that you also add the potential of capital appreciation, Spanish real estate is poised for combined two-digit gains over the next years

easily trumping alternative investments and paltry fixed returns in a context of historic ultra-low interest rates. The fledgling green shoots, which started in 2014, consolidated all throughout 2017 and are gaining traction in 2018. With this off-plan frenzy in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to write a gentle reminder on the eight tips new-build buyers should be mindful of.

8 Tips on Buying Off-Plan in Spain 1. Buy-to-let If you are buying to rent the property out, either as long or short-term, make sure the region of Spain in which you are buying allows for this. Some regions, e.g. Balearic Islands, have stringent regulations whereby a special licence is required for holiday lettings. Failure to comply will result in the town hall fining you. Disgruntled neighbours always make apt whistle-blowers, so be warned. Other regions in Spain, such as Andalusia with laxer regulation, do not currently require letting licences.

2. Plot of land under a developer’s name In the last property bubble, many developers marketed and sold whole developments without owning the land. One should never buy an off-plan unit in a plot that is not registered under a developer’s name. There are far too many associated risks to take a gamble with your hardearned money.

3. Building Licence The basic recommendation is not to sign a Reservation Contract or a Private Purchase Contract (PPC) unless the town hall where the property is located has issued a Building Licence for the development. You should categorically not buy a property that lacks planning permission, it is only basic common sense. This is by far the biggest mistake that – unbeknownst to many – a buyer can possibly make. Many problems could easily be staved off on following it. The Building Licence will ensure that the building is above board and the property is not being built in green belt land, for example.

4. Bank Guarantees The instalments paid while the property is being built can be guaranteed by means of what is known generically as a ‘bank guarantee’. In other words, any payments made towards off-plan property that lacks a Building Licence, will be unsecured.


theaddressmagazine.com


Bank Guarantees are a legal tool devised to secure the interim deposits of prospective off-plan purchasers should their properties not be delivered on time or their developers file for administration. Every payment made towards the property, including the initial holding deposit, should be secured by a bank guarantee. A bank guarantee is of critical importance, acting as a safety net securing all your stage payments, should the developer fail to complete your property.

5. Licence of First Occupation A Licence of First Occupancy is a certificate issued by a town hall that confirms that a newly-built property fully complies with all planning and building regulations and

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

is ready to be used as a dwelling. An LFO allows off-plan purchasers to dwell in a property legally. You can read more on this subject in our in-depth article on the Licence of First Occupation. It is important mainly for four reasons: ŸŸ It provides a check on the planning legality. An LFO means the developer has built the dwelling in accordance with the original town hall’s Building Licence as well as with all Planning laws. ŸŸ It is required by utility companies to have access to official supplies. ŸŸ Lenders will ask for it if you require finance. Banks will also be asking you for a LFO. Even on reselling the


property, your buyer may request a copy for his own lender. Â&#x;Â&#x; Holiday lettings. If you are looking to buy as an investment (buy-to-let), an LFO is required by Regional Tourist Authorities to rent out your place on a short-term. Be wary of anyone downplaying the importance of an LFO claiming it is unnecessary. In general, I advise you not to complete without a Licence of First Occupation.

6. NIE number A NIE number is a Fiscal Identification Number for foreigners and is required, among other things, to buy property in Spain. More details in our article: NIE Number Explained. (do you have a link to this article?)

7. Snagging list Before you complete on a newly-built property you should always do a snagging list of the property. You can either draw up a snagging list yourself or else appoint one of the many reputable companies that may carry it out on your behalf. You can read further on this topic in our detailed article Snagging List Explained or else in our Q&A with The Sunday Times. (link??)

8. Post-completion: dealing with property taxes, utilities, community fees & other Once you have acquired your new Spanish property, you will have to face all the associated running expenses.

theaddressmagazine.com


Make sure you have carefully budgeted for this to avoid unpleasant surprises! Some of the luxury gated communities with lush tropical gardens and beautiful infinity pools that dot the Spanish coastlines may have steep maintenance expenses. You should open a Spanish bank account if you haven’t done so already. Utility companies do not accept overseas payments and only accept standing orders against your Spanish account. You should set at least as a direct debit all the following: ŸŸ ŸŸ ŸŸ ŸŸ

IBI tax (akin to the UK’s Council tax) Rubbish collection tax Utility bills Community fees

Conclusion Whether you are looking to buy as an investment or for pleasure, now is the right time to dip back into the Spanish market. Low prices and cheap mortgages will not remain available for ever. Spanish property prices reached their nadir in 2011 which marked the inflection point of the recovery. Prices have continued to grow unabated ever since. The year 2018 has only accentuated this trend with a sharp rise in asking prices.

Tax advantages of becoming resident in Spain By Raymundo Larraín Nesbitt, Director of Larraín Nesbitt Lawyers

Becoming (tax) resident in Spain is not as bad as some people would have us believe. Mind you, if you do become tax resident in Spain, you will be taxed on your worldwide income unless you are lucky enough to attain from Spain’s Tax Office a coveted Non-Domiciled tax status (only affluent taxpayers need apply). This tax scheme basically legally exempts you from paying tax on your worldwide assets & income.

A

fter a decade-long hiatus, Spain’s real estate market has kickstarted in 2018 with off-plan property leading the pack. We have witnessed stunning two-digit capital appreciations YOY in large Spanish cities, such as Madrid and Barcelona, which has led to a strong real estate revival which ripples are being felt by the rest of the market, which is following closely in its wake. In addition to the above, Spain became in 2017 the world’s second tourist destination, trailing only behind France. With over 88 million tourists and counting, Spain has become a consolidated and well-established world tourist destination. This has led to an unprecedented growth in asking rental prices of tourist lodgings over the last three years which have risen by an impressive average of two digits year-on-year. The potent combination of strong capital appreciation coupled with explosive rising rental yields, has concocted

a powerful allure difficult to resist. Savvy investors have seen a clear business opportunity and have been busy buying units in well-located tourist areas given the enormous yield potential of buy-to-let properties in tourist hot spots. In a context of historic ultra-low interest rates, investing in bricks only seems like the sensible option given the enormous growth potential of both rising rental yields and real estate capital appreciation. With these two factors working in tandem, Spanish real estate is poised for combined two-digit gains over the next years easily winning alternative investments and paltry fixed returns.

Tax advantages on becoming resident in Spain The below list is open-ended and works throughout Spain; however, you should be advised there are far more tax advantages at a regional level that I care to collate below. This is because local Administrations have devolved competencies and may rule on some tax aspects improving

theaddressmagazine.com


upon tax advantages that apply nationwide. Regions compete between each other to attract investments.

Income tax ŸŸ Holiday lettings: landlords benefit from lenient tax relief which on average reduces their tax bill by 70% or more. Ideal for those investing with an eye on buy-to-let. ŸŸ Residents and EU-residents pay a much lower percentage as opposed to non-residents (approximately 25% less tax). ŸŸ Residents in Spain do not have to pay every year Non-Resident Income Tax. ŸŸ Unless you are self-employed, you do not need to make a tax return for earnings below €22,000 from one employer (Subject to terms and conditions).

Inheritance tax ŸŸ Take advantage of lenient tax allowances (at a threetier level: national, regional and local) which make a vast majority of foreign inheritors not having to pay any inheritance tax whatsoever in Spain. For example, in Andalusia inheritances under one million euros go untaxed (per beneficiary). In Madrid inheritance taxation is almost nil. ŸŸ 95% of tax reduction on a heir’s taxable base on his main home and even up to 99.99% in some regions in Spain e.g. Andalusia (subject to a cap).

Gift tax ŸŸ Multiple regions in Spain offer generous tax allowances between next-of-kin e.g. Valencia offers €156,000 tax-free for cash gifts to under 21-year-olds. €100,000 tax-free for over 21-year-olds.

Capital gains tax (on selling your property in Spain) ŸŸ No 3% of the sales proceeds withheld by the Spanish Tax Office on selling your property in Spain. ŸŸ Rollover relief: investing the sales proceeds in a new main home in Spain (or in the European Union) will negate completely your capital gains tax liability. ŸŸ Absolute relief: pay no capital gains tax on selling your property in Spain. Over 65-year-olds are not liable for capital gains tax on selling their main home (Subject to terms and conditions).

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019


theaddressmagazine.com


Plusvalia tax (on selling, on inheriting)

Exclusions

ŸŸ Town halls offer significant discounts to residents. Up to 95% in some cases.

Professional athletes, such as football players, are barred from making use of it.

IBI tax (Spain’s council tax)

The Tax Benefits

ŸŸ Significant discounts available to residents (two-digits).

Wealth tax ŸŸ Wealth tax: huge reductions available for residents (€300,000 on main home, per partner) besides a personal tax-free allowance of €700,000. A resident couple may apply for a combined €600,000 tax reduction on their main home (in addition to their own personal tax-free allowance of €700,000 each). ŸŸ Spain offers an exclusive Non-Dom Tax Scheme that rolls the red carpet for high-flyers (see section below). Pay no tax on your worldwide income & assets and only a fixed amount of 24% (in lieu of the normal 45%) on any income derived within Spanish territory.

Other advantages ŸŸ Access to free state healthcare. ŸŸ Voting rights in local elections: enrolling on your local town hall census (Padrón) entitles you to cast a vote in local elections. ŸŸ Mortgage loan applications: Non-residents are limited to 60 - 70% LTV. Whereas Spanish residents are handed out more lenient terms, generally being able to borrow 80% LTV, or even more. When you are starting out your own business in Spain, this can make a key difference on the money you can raise. ŸŸ Lease agreements: Non-residents, perceived as a greater financial risk because they have no ties to Spain, are required additional collateral by their landlords. Whereas Spanish residents neatly circumvent these and only need to comply with the bare minimum.

In a nutshell, this tax scheme allows expat taxpayers to make spectacular savings on paying In-come Tax in Spain. If you opt into this scheme you stand to benefit from both income derived in Spain as well as any other worldwide income. ŸŸ Spanish Income. The first €600,000 earned from a source within Spanish territory will be taxed at a flat rate of 24%. The remainder will be taxed at 45%. Under normal cir-cumstances resident taxpayers in Spain pay 45% on earnings of €60,000 or above. As can be surmised, even for earnings whose source is in Spanish territory, the tax savings are huge. ŸŸ Worldwide Income. But it is here where this tax scheme truly shines. Spanish Tax Authorities will only tax you on your income derived within Spanish territory. Any other source of worldwide income is tax-exempt (just like with the popular UKs non-dom tax scheme). Under normal circumstances, resident taxpayers in Spain should pay for their worldwide income. Moreover, other countries cannot tax you on your worldwide income as for all intents and purposes you have opted to become a Spanish tax resident. You can claim double-taxation relief which negates other countries’ claims. This advantage offers a hugely attractive prospect for those that hold substantial over-seas earnings and interests. ŸŸ Best of both worlds. On opting into this scheme, expats will be treated as if they were resident taxpayers but in reality, it will be a legal fiction whereby they will benefit as if they were still non-resident taxpayers. So, you in fact get the best from both worlds. ŸŸ Five years plus one. It applies on the fiscal year of relocation as well as on the follow-ing five years (total up to six years).

Focus on Spain’s Non-Domiciled Tax Scheme

Who can apply?

Who is it aimed at?

ŸŸ Expats relocating to Spain as a result of a professional contract. The contract is a sine qua non requirement to opt into this scheme. ŸŸ High-earners. ŸŸ Not to have resided in Spain within the previous 10 years. ŸŸ No earnings derived from a Permanent Establishment in Spain.

This law is tailored to cater to senior corporate individuals (think of a multinational company relocating a high-ranking executive to Spain). These individuals are the ones that will reap the tax benefits of the generous provisions set out by this law. But other cases, such as high-profile artists, are also included.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019


theaddressmagazine.com


When does it apply? It is time-limited and applies on the fiscal year of relocation as well as on the following five years (up to six years).

Timeline to apply? Six months as from the start of the economic activity or as from enrolling in Spain´s Social Security.

Conclusion Now that Portugal’s popular non-habitual residency tax scheme has come into jeopardy, as it is taking serious flak from fellow EU countries which are challenging its ongoing viability, Spain is perceived all the more as a safe alternative for affluent retirees wishing to invest their pension pot. A burgeoning real estate recovery (property prices have increased by two-digits YOY in 2018 across the board) coupled with very competitive mortgage lending conditions coalesce to create a great buying opportunity. Can you afford to miss out?

A Fuego Negro


Food pilgrims find their Mecca in San Sebastián By Isabelle Kliger

Boasting more Michelin stars per capita than anywhere else in the world, the Basque Country has a wellearned reputation as the epicentre of Spanish gastronomy. Nowhere is this claim to fame more apparent than in San Sebastián – the delightfully welcoming coastal town to which foodies flock in their droves to gorge themselves on delicacies ranging from the humblest of pintxos to the finest Michelin-star dining, and everything in between.

O

n first appearance, San Sebastián may seem like just another relaxed seaside town but it won’t take long for you to discover something special simmering under the surface. Turns out people here are totally obsessed with two things: food and surfing. The local community is made up of wholesome-looking beach bums who are either out burning calories or tucked away in a bar consuming them. The same goes for most visitors to the city. As a result, its restaurants, from the three-star Michelin gastro-temples to the simplest of tapas bars, are packed with hungry patrons all year round, all week long, day and night.

To experience San Sebastián like a local, you have to kick things off with a “pintxo crawl” through the narrow lanes of the picturesque old town. The Basque version of tapas, pintxos are small dishes of everything from squid, to prawns, or steak, typically served on a skewer or toothpick on a piece of bread. The word pintxo translates as “spike” and refers to the sharp object used to impale the dish. And while the origin of the pintxo is as modest as a piece of Spanish omelette on a piece of baguette, the explosion of the Basque culinary scene has gradually made the definition looser and the dishes more sophisticated. These

days, you can find everything from caramelised foie gras, to slow-cooked oxtail, and sea urchin, listed on the blackboards of pintxo bars, without a toothpick in sight.

Although San Sebastián has too many of these superb establishments to list, a respectable pintxo crawl is likely to include, but absolutely not restricted to, the following:

But while the dishes may have become more refined, the same cannot be said for the establishments that serve them – most of which are hidden deep in the old town and appear on first sight to be loud, crowded dive bars. The method of eating pintxos is even less sophisticated: walk in, jostle your way to a suitable standing spot, use your elbows to approach the bar and order a couple of pintxos, wash them down with a glass of red Rioja wine or Txakoli, a fizzy, local white wine dramatically poured into a tumbler from a great height, wipe your mouth, chuck your napkin on the floor and move on to the next bar. In short, the experience is unpretentious, often awkward and messy, and an absolute pleasure.

La Cuchara de San Telmo (Calle del Treinta y Uno de Agosto, 28), a bustling, always-packed bar, hidden down an inconspicuous alleyway next to the Dominican monastery of San Telmo, which serves its own unique brand of Basque nouvelle cuisine from a supremely creative kitchen. Don’t miss the succulent slow-cooked veal cheak and the mouthwatering grilled foie gras with apple compote.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

Just round the corner from La Cuchara de San Telmo, on the main drag, you will find Gandarias, (restaurantegandarias.com, 31 de Agosto Kalea, 23,) an old-school pintxo joint in the midst of the bustling old town, that specialises in expertly executed classics such as Iberian ham, and


Bar Martinez

skewers of perfectly cooked sirloin steak and mouth-watering prawns with garlic and pepper. Blink and you’d miss it but just a few more steps up the road is A Fuego Negro (afuegonegro.com; 31 de Agosto Kalea, 31), a dimly lit, experimental pintxo bar with dramatic black and red interior that has made its name for new-wave pintxos such as the spectacular tomato purée, mussels and béchamel, and the melt-in-the-mouth oxtail “brownie”. If you can still walk at this point, carry on past the imposing facade of the spectacular 18th-century Koruko Andre Mariaren Basilica, hook a left and slip into Sirimiri Gastroleku (sirimirigastroleku.com, Calle Mayor, 18), a tidy, modern pintxo bar that tends to catch the eye of passing tourists with its bar piled high with trendy-looking pintxos.

Gandarias

However, the real show stoppers here are the hot dishes ordered from the kitchen. Don’t miss the exceptional slowcooked lamb and the fan favourite braised octopus with raspberry and green salsa. The last stop on the tour takes you out of the old town, across the river into the up-and-coming Gros neighbourhood, where you will find Bodega Donastiarra (bodegadonostiarra.com; Peña y Goñi Kalea, 13), a classic bar that is well worth the short walk. Once inside you will find a jovial crowd of locals who have been coming here since time immemorial to indulge in delicious takes on traditional dishes such as Spanish omelette, or tortilla de patatas, Russian salad, or ensaladilla Rusa, and the house-special Induráin, a pintxo of tuna, anchovy, pickled chili peppers, onion and olive, named after the Spanish road-racing cyclist.

As much as we love Michelin-star fine dining and lively pintxo bars, few things in life can compete with perfectly executed home cooking. Add a warm, welcoming dining room and a dreamy terrace with killer views of the city, a husband-and-wife kitchen-and-dining-room team who love their work, and dishes made from meticulously sourced local produce, and what do you have? The answer is Zelai Txiki (restaurantezelaitxiki.com). The eatery is a local favourite, hidden away in a leafy suburb into which few tourists ever venture. Grab a taxi or head over on foot – it’s a 30-minute walk uphill – and a great way to work up an appetite in preparation for Chef Chef Juan Carlos’ fabulous creations, which include ultra-fresh grilled squid with squid ink, and mouth-watering suckling pig with potato purée. And if after all that you never want to eat again, you can rest assured it will all have been worth it. Even though your waistline may beg to differ.

things to do in

Amsterdam that aren’t the van Gogh Museum By Isabelle Kliger

Skip the cheesy canal tours and the coffee shops, the waffle houses and the tourist-heavy museum district and, instead, discover the path less trodden on your next trip to Amsterdam. This is the ultimate guide to the Dutch capital (for people who’ve already been here). It’s impossible to set foot in Amsterdam and not be immediately enchanted by it. Europe’s best-preserved 17th-century city is home to 165 gorgeous, tree-lined canals, more than 1,200 picturesque bridges, some stunning medieval architecture, and approximately 2,500 charming houseboats. And between the van Gogh Museum, Red Light District, Floating Flower Market, and Anne Frank House, the city has more than its fair share of tourist attractions to keep first-time visitors happy for at least a weekend. But let’s face it, chances are, at this stage, you’ve visited the eighth most popular travel destination in Europe at least once before. So what do you do, once you’ve exhausted the checklist in your guidebook? For anyone looking to head off the beaten track, it turns out Amsterdam is also home to several über-trendy, up-and-coming new neighbourhoods, a blossoming culinary scene – not least thanks to the abundance of

unusual ingredients and flavours brought to the country by its former colonies –, a fantastic local design movement, and, of course, more bikes per capita than almost any other city in the world (at last count the city’s population amounted to 850,000 humans and 900,000 bikes). Here are our top tips for what to do in Amsterdam, when you’ve done it all before:

1

Hang with the hipsters in de Pijp

Amsterdam’s hippest district can be found just south of the city centre, in the Oud Zuid to the west of the River Amstel. Frequently referred to as the Brooklyn of Amsterdam, beards and stylish eyewear reign supreme in de Pijp, which features more cool bars and restaurants

theaddressmagazine.com


than in any other part of the Dutch capital. Stroll through Albert Cuypmarkt, a bustling open-air market that is open every day of the week and sells everything from local fare, to souvenirs and general bric-à-brac, before exploring the small streets around Sarphatipark, packed with design shops and bars. If you’re feeling peckish, grab a cinnamon roll at Scandinavian Embassy (scandinavianembassy.nl) but make sure you save room for dinner at Bardak (bardak.nl). Since opening earlier this year, this lively Israeli street food joint has become an instant hit with Amsterdam’s trendy young things, and it’s easy to see why, with its menu of simple, tasty crowd pleasers including charcoal grilled rib-eye skewers, mushroom shawarma and falafel with tahini, and an atmosphere that’s bursting with good energy. We love it and so do the locals.

2

Rent a bike

Amsterdam is among the most-pedalled cities in Europe, second only to Copenhagen. Given that it is home to more bikes than people, there really is only one respectable

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

way to get around it. Avoid the crowded bike tours and, instead, rent your own two-wheeled ride from MacBike (macbike.nl). MacBike has five locations in the city with 12 different types of bikes available to rent by the hour or day. The easy-to-use three-gear handbrake bike is ideal for spinning around the city, or, for something a little different, why not try an electric bike or a tandem bike.

3

Get down with the locals at Foodhallen

On weekend afternoons, Amsterdammers in the know gather in Foodhallen (foodhallen.nl), a former tram depot that has been converted into a spectacular indoor food market. Reminiscent of London’s Borough Market or Mercado San Miguel in Madrid, Foodhallen is a must for foodies, with more than 20 stalls, all serving different culinary delights ranging from the sensational Bitterballen (Dutch-style “croquettes”, typically filled with meat and cheese, and served with mustard), at de Ballen Bar, to Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches at Viêt View, or crispy soft-shell crab bun with wakame and creamy wasabi at


theaddressmagazine.com


Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019


theaddressmagazine.com


le Big Fish. Even if you’re not hungry. Foodhallen is a great place to while away the hours and get chatting to the friendly locals over a couple of pints of craft beer. If you get bored, the latest film releases can be found at the nine-screen Filmhallen cinema, all within the same building.

4

Treat yourself to a Michelin star

If you want to catch a glimpse of the beautiful people of Amsterdam, look no further than THE DUCHESS. After opening in 2015 in the city’s historic KAS Bank building, which it shares with the superb W Amsterdam hotel, the restaurant has gone from strength to strength. Earlier this year, it was awarded its first Michelin star. With its jawdropping Belle Époque design, and tantalizing NouveauNiçoise menu, featuring exquisite takes on fan favourites such as Dover Sole Meunière, Beef Wellington and steak tartare, it comes as no surprise that THE DUCHESS is at the top of so many ‘must-visit’ lists in Amsterdam this year.

5

Gorge yourself on Indonesian rijstafel

We love bitterballen, stroopwafels and haring as much as the next canal-dwelling bike lover, but let’s face it, the Netherlands has never been famous for its culinary finesse. Instead, some of the most memorable food you’ll ever eat in Amsterdam is likely to originate with Holland’s vibrant immigrant communities and former colonies. And among all these, the one that really stands out is Indonesian. We suggest you pay a visit to one of Amsterdam’s excellent Indonesian restaurants and order rijstafel – a word that literally translates as “rice table” and refers to an elaborate tasting menu containing an array of small, colourful shareable dishes that range from mild to mega-spicy. We love Blue Pepper (restaurantbluepepper.com), an unassuming little eatery that wows patrons with its innovative take on this mind-blowing Indonesian feast. Like your food spicy? Make sure you order the extra-hot sambal paste on the side. It will (literally) blow your mind.

Step back in time with the Van Loons

History enthusiasts will delight in Museum van Loon (museumvanloon.nl), an immaculately preserved 17th century canal house that once belonged to one of the founders of the Dutch East India Company. Built in 1672, the house was home to wealthy trader family the Van Loons from 1884 to 1945. The building, which has been renovated with the wood panelling and stucco that was typical of the era, is also packed with unique pieces made of silver and porcelain, as well as artwork, sculptures and paintings from the mid 19th century Romanticism era.

7

Book a high-end boat tour

Amsterdam is exceedingly popular with Northern European stag and hen parties, and there are few things these fun-loving groups enjoy more than living it loud on one of the city’s raucous canal boat tours. Fortunately for you, there’s another way to experience the best Amsterdam has to offer, without having to contend with the crowds. Rederij De Jordaan (rederijdejordaan.amsterdam) offers a more sophisticated alternative, with its two luxurious

vintage saloon boats that can be booked for exclusive, bespoke cruises along the city’s magnificent canals. The experience is available for one to 12 people and can be customised entirely in accordance with your wishes.

8

Get crafty

There’s a lot more to Dutch beer than Amstel and Heineken. While these two global brands may be the best known Amsterdam draughts, the city is also home to a growing number of exciting craft breweries. Brouwerij’t IJ (brouwerijhetij.nl) organic brewery, located in a former bath house next to the De Gooyer windmill on the east side of Amsterdam, produces a highly rated pils and an amber, as well as the double Natte and triple Zatte. Check out the website for details of tours and tastings. Other hoppy treasure troves include Brouwerij De Prael (deprael.nl), with its popular “Johnny” pils named after the local crooner Johnny Jordaan, and Oedipus Brewing (http://oedipus. com), a young, local brewery known for its avant-garde flavoured beers including Thai Thai, with lemongrass, coriander, galangal, orange peel and chili, and Mama, a hoppy pale ale with delicate aromas of citrus and lychee. Or why not just try them all at In de Wildeman (indewildeman.nl), a former distillery that is now a bar and beer-tasting room, serving more than 200 different bottled beers draughts from around the world.

9

Get some Dutch Courage

Take a stroll down a tiny alleyway called Pijlsteeg, and you cannot help but stumble up on the historic liqueur distillery known as Wynand Fockink (wynand-fockink.nl). This is said to be the original home of Genever, a traditional Dutch liqueur made from juniper berries. Historically, it is believed to have been the reason for the expression Dutch Courage, as it was used by English soldiers for its calming effects before battle, during the Anglo-Dutch Wars (1652–1674). Genever is also known as Dutch Gin, although it bears little resemblance to its distant cousin from London, apart from also being made from juniper. In fact, some say a malty, full-bodied Genever actually has more in common with un-aged Scotch. We say, it’s probably best to taste it and see for yourself. Ginever can be ordered at Wynand Fockink, in most bars in Amsterdam, or, you can sign up for the full Cocktail & Genever Experience at House of Bols (bols.com/experience).

10

Bag a piece of local design

Home to more than 400 museums, there is enough happening in Amsterdam to keep even the most

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

die-hard culture buffs entertained. However, assuming you’ve already paid a visit to van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Heineken, now’s the time for something a little different. Housed in a 17th century canal house, the Museum of Bags and Purses (tassenmuseum.nl/en/) does exactly what it says on the tin, with its mind-boggling array of historic and contemporary bags. Highlights include Madonna’s famous Versace bag, a bag once carried by Margaret Thatcher, and too many historic pieces to list. Make sure you leave enough time for a visit to the museum shop, which doubles as a boutique for Dutch designer handbags.

Where to stay Amsterdam has more than its fair share of upscale hotels to choose among. From the very latest in five-star luxury, to the trendiest boutique properties, this is the cream of the crop:

Hotel TwentySeven If opulence is your middle name then look no further than Hotel TwentySeven. Hidden inside a turn-of-the-century building right on Dam Square, you’d never find unless you knew it was there. Once inside, discover an ultra-exclusive five-star property, in which personalised service is the name of the game and every detail has been designed to maximise your comfort. The 16 lavishly appointed suites are fitted with every conceivable mod con, including


theaddressmagazine.com


two-person Jacuzzis and steam showers with individual ambience lighting controls, bespoke furniture and luxurious amenities. hoteltwentyseven.com/en/

W Amsterdam Delivering the perfect blend of historic detail and contemporary style, W Hotels brings its successful formula to one of Amsterdam’s most enviable locations. Split across a former telephone exchange and a bank, the hotel is chic, tech-forward and ideally situated right on the edge of the canal district. Service here is professional and friendly, the signature W beds are to die for, while the outstanding culinary offering, which includes rooftop steakhouse Mr. Porter and elegant one-Michelin star THE DUCHESS, is unrivalled in the Dutch capital. marriott.com/hotels/travel/amswh-w-amsterdam/ Alternatively, check out the stylish boutique hotels that have opened in the canal district in recent years, offering visitors a rare opportunity to sleep in a bed overlooking one of the city’s prettiest waterways. If this sounds like your idea of paradise, book a canal-facing room at chic Pulitzer Amsterdam or trendy The Hoxton. More adventurous souls might even want to explore the impressive selection of high-end houseboats that can be rented online. pulitzeramsterdam.com thehoxton.com/holland/amsterdam/hotels

KERTH GUMBS Head Chef, Ormer Mayfair

Restaurants will still offer very high standards of service but the dĂŠcor and general atmosphere will be less restrictive and rigid in order not to deter customers. From not-so-formal dress codes to getting rid of table cloths, fine dining cuisine will appeal to a wider audience who previously may not have been interested in the experience or would have felt that they were not the right fit. The number of diners who want to know where their food is sourced and produced, as well as wanting to have a smaller impact on the environment, will continue to increase. Chefs who have been used to preparing and cooking the more readily available fish or meats will turn more to vegan and vegetarian culinary inclusions - sourcing prime vegetables, adding technique, texture and flair to come up with creative ways to sublime the humble vegetables into unforgettable creations. flemings-mayfair.co.uk

MICHAEL CARTER Tom Dick & Harry’s Small plates and sharing dishes have been the height of food fashion from all cultures, as customers become more daring with their culinary choices and 2019 is set to be no different. Communal dining is here to stay, and the convivial experience of sociable sharing is not only great fun, but great value. Dining occasions become more informal as we begin to see the set time for meals become less defined, with small plates giving diners the option to graze throughout the day. Ultimately this trend will continue to evolve with more chefs and concepts adopting the small plate ethos – and making it their own next year, like our trademarked version called ‘Nibbleinis™’. tomdickandharrys.co.uk

SOPHIE MICHELL Executive Chef Home House I’m always a bit loath to talk about food trends as I really think it’s the classics and the basics that we should all be mastering as chefs. Saying that, health is always at the forefront of my mind too and can often inspire serious food trends. Think quinoa, avocado on toast and poké bowls, all massive trends of the past few years. One factor that still hasn’t really been explored, is the growing market for sugar free items. People understand that sugar is at the core of a lot of issues and everyone wants to enjoy eating sweet treats without the health risks. There is an increasing amount of natural alternative sweeteners available, so I think we can expect a growth in sugar free products and dishes with low sugar content. It is definitely something that I am passionate about and will be focusing on at Home House. homehouse.co.uk

MAX WARREN Head Chef at The Colton Arms

The raw food diet will continue to grow as it provides a lot of personal and digestive benefits, as well as giving diners more energy and focus in their day-to-day lives. Although diners don’t need to eat 100% raw, this diet features all-natural ingredients, as well as avoiding processed foods and unneeded packaging which assists the hospitality industry in their sustainability plight. It also helps to protect people against any nutrient deficiencies, as well as helping to maintain weight management and a healthy lifestyle. Heating up certain fruit and vegetables can cause the loss of some nutrients, such as vitamin C, so this style of diet can help to ensure diners retain the much-needed goodness from what they eat. thecoltonarms.co.uk

CHRIS KNIGHTS Group Executive Chef, Young’s

2018 was the year of dining consciously and 2019 is set to follow suit. We now live in a world where consumers know a lot more about food than ever before. Lifestyle and food choices will continue to adapt, as consumers become more educated on what they’re consuming, where it comes from and how. The flexitarian movement will be a big one to watch, with more and more people choosing to eat less meat and dairy, with some cutting back to once or twice a week. Meanwhile, social responsibility will be bigger than ever. Consumers will make food choices based on a restaurant’s credentials to do better to the environment, the community, the planet and the people that live within. While provenance will still have an importance when it comes to ingredients, consumers will want to see more chefs experimenting with ideas such as reducing food waste and ultimately it’s the restaurants role to educate and inspire diners. youngs.co.uk

Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar


RAKESH NAIR Group Development & Training Chef at The Cinnamon Collection For 2019, I see the line between fine dining and casual dining becoming blurred with more and more restaurants offering the same high level quality of food in relaxed surroundings. I predict that regional food and drinks will be more and more prominent in restaurant menus championing local produce and regional trends. Also, with the popularity of veganism on the rise and concerns for the environment, people will become more knowledgeable about what they eat and are likely to be asking more questions to about what does into the food they consume. I think that perhaps there may be more specific days of the week that people ‘give up’ certain foods, like diary, meat, fish etc just relieve pressure on the planet’s resources. As a result of this, I think that the proportions of meat/fish to vegetables will decrease and lesser known grains and vegetables will see a resurgence. thecinnamoncollection.com

theaddressmagazine.com


RYOSUKE KISHI Head Chef at Ginza Onodera When it comes to fish, the assumption among diners and chefs alike tends to be that fresh is best. While this is certainly true for many shellfish and white fleshed varieties, the rising conversation around umami flavours this year will – I believe – prompt an increasing number of professional kitchens to consider aging certain varieties of fish in 2019. Traditionally in Japan, we age certain fish, such as tuna and salmon, to improve both the taste and the texture of the fish. Ageing fish takes just a couple of days, and the process is similar to that of ageing beef or game, allowing the flavours to develop and intensify. As chefs continue to think more about how they can improve and intensify flavours, I expect to see more and more aged fish on menus. onodera-group.com/uk/

AGNAR SVERRISSON Chef patron and owner of The Texture Restaurant Group

Each year brings with it a new shortlist of ‘in vogue’ ingredients, cooking styles and techniques. In 2019, I expect skyr - the ancient and authentic Icelandic cultured dairy product - to be one of these. Skyr is an integral part of food culture and day-to-day diet in Iceland, having been produced and eaten in the region for thousands of years. It has a texture and taste that is similar to Greek yoghurt, but unlike yoghurt is made with skimmed milk, making it naturally fat and sugar free, and very high in protein. It is an incredibly versatile ingredient at my restaurants Texture and 28-50 Wine Workshop & Kitchen, we use skyr in everything from sauces as a substitute to mayonnaise to get much lighter and cleaner flavours, to signature ‘snow’, dressings and, of course, in desserts. 2018 has seen diners take more interest in health, nutrition and provenance, and as such I expect to see naturally healthy products such as skyr feature more and more on restaurant menus and shop shelves alike in the year to come. texture-restaurant.co.uk

FRANCK DESAINS Tea Taster and Food Designer, Mariage Frères

While tea is the national drink of the UK it is scarcely used outside of the teapot, but we believe all of that is set to change for 2019 and it will make its way from the cup and saucer and onto the plate through original recipes, desserts and fine epicerie, as well as into the glass for cocktails. For us, tea is not just a drink but a naturally healthy and versatile ingredient. Countless varieties of white, green, yellow, blue and black teas (we’ve experimented with over 1,000 blends) provide an infinite variety of tastes and flavours. It can bring an added delicate touch to fish dishes like tea-steamed salmon with Japanese matcha green tea sauce, or delicious depth to desserts such as dark chocolate gateau infused with a black tea with notes of chocolate and caramel. As consumers continue to become more and more health-conscious, Tea Gastronomy is a trend that we think will continue to grow alongside tea pairings with food as an interesting and refined alcohol-free alternative to the traditional wine-pairings. mariagefreres.com/UK/welcome.html

PASQUALE FERRILLO Senior Bartender at Manetta’s Bar We will see an increase in the use of fat washing techniques to create innovative cocktails, such as a bacon or peanut butter Old Fashioned. At Manetta’s, we have just launched a cocktail called ‘Occasional’ Bourbon infused with truffle, homemade mushroom syrup, yellow chartreuse, lemon juice and egg white. Asian cocktails are set to take a more prominent place on the cocktail scene. Think liquors such as Yuzu liquor for a Japanese twist on a Negroni, vodka infused with Chinese teas such as Lapsang Souchong to give a touch of smokiness to cocktails, and homemade syrups such as Thai chilli and black pepper syrup used in a classic such as an Aviation. flemings-mayfair.co.uk/fine-dining-london/ manettas-bar

Kitchen CONFIDENTIAL 392mm 150

A conversation with Manish Mehrotra, Corporate Chef, Indian Accent – New Delhi, New York and London With over 20 years of culinary experience, and having worked within a number of top restaurants, Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent is widely considered one of the most exciting modern Indian chefs in the industry today. Joining Old World Hospitality in 2000, Manish has since opened several restaurants, including Indian Accent in New Delhi, New York and London, whilst travelling the world and flooring guests with his culinary skills and charm. He led Indian Accent New Delhi to acclaimed success, being the only restaurant in India on the World’s 100 Best list and has been so for the last four years. It was also named ‘Best Restaurant in India’ by Asia’s 50 Best for four consecutive years since 2014.

WHY DID YOU START COOKING?

At a young age, joining a hotel management school was my career decision, as I wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do! It was here that I discovered my love for the kitchen I was drawn to it as it was the most creative element within the hotel industry. It really gave me the opportunity to showcase my creative side. WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST FOOD MEMORY? Each year for Diwali, my family would have hundreds of kilograms of ladoos delivered to our home to give to our friends and neighbours. Ladoos are a traditional Indian sweet made with flour, nuts, sugar, jaggery and ghee, and other toppings like nuts or coconut, most often eaten at celebrations and festivals as a special treat. They were one of my favourite things, and I was always so excited to have one, but first I had to help my family pack them up as gifts, to be given out to friends and family. It was very hard as a young boy to pack them and not eat them, but when I finally got to have one after the Diwali ceremony in the evening, it was always worth the wait!

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

WHO IS/WAS YOUR FOOD MENTOR? WHO INSPIRES YOU ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS? It wouldn’t be true if I said I have one as many people have inspired me. The first Head Chef I worked under was Chef Johnson Esso and he taught me the basics that led me on the path to become the chef I am today. He taught me how to identify flavours that would work well together, and how to successfully navigate a kitchen and work cohesively alongside others. I also really admire Rick Stein and take a lot of inspiration from his cookbooks and cookery programmes. When I joined Old World Hospitality, I got the opportunity to travel across the world and in local parts of India on various projects, sometimes just for a food recee so I could learn about the local flavours and ingredients. Even today, I like to eat at local restaurants and even street side shops and trust me, there is a lot to learn from them. DO YOU THINK BEING A GREAT CHEF IS A NATURAL TALENT, OR IS IT SOMETHING ANYONE CAN LEARN? I wouldn’t say being a great chef is a natural talent. It’s my firm belief that anything you want to achieve you can, through hard work and dedication. I do believe some people are more inclined to want to learn, which may have a positive impact. For example, I always loved eating and was fascinated by food, so I focused my energies on improving my skills and knowledge, as it was something I was already passionate about. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ASPIRING PROFESSIONAL CHEFS WHO WOULD WANT THE KIND OF RESULTS THAT YOU’VE HAD? Chefs starting out have to be prepared to work hard. To work in this industry,


theaddressmagazine.com


it is not only physically but emotionally challenging too, but if you are truly passionate about cooking and food, this shouldn’t matter. Another piece of advice would be to never stop learning. There is always something new to be discovered that can help you improve.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DISH ON THE MENU? At Indian Accent, London Soy Keema is my favourite. It uses very humble ingredients, which come together to create something unique, delicious and also comforting. Guests are always surprised and delighted by it.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE MOMENT LOOKING BACK? Some of my favourite moments are working on the opening of Indian Accent, New Delhi. It was challenging but it was fun and it was satisfying. It took us a while to get the word going. But Rohit Khattar, Chairman of Old World Hospitality was patient, he believed in the concept and was always supportive. Slowly and steadily the brand picked up pace and It was eternally satisfying to see diners enjoying the food and coming back for more.

FUNNIEST KITCHEN INCIDENT? I was working in the restaurant of a five-star hotel in Mumbai many years ago, and somehow – no one ever found out how – live crabs from the kitchen ended up getting free. A number of them scuttled out of the kitchen into the hotel, and as the kitchen team realised, we all chased them across the lobby to capture them again. It was a pretty comical sight.

WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE AIM AND GOAL FOR YOUR CAREER? IF YOU COULD ACHIEVE ANYTHING WITH IT, WHAT WOULD YOU PICK? One of my goals is to continue to make real, authentic Indian food, all over the globe. Through Indian Accent, we would like to help create more respect for Indian cuisine, and help people realise it’s about so much more than just curries. WHAT DRIVES YOU, AND WHAT MAKES YOU PUT IN THOSE CRAZY HOURS THAT LEADS TO SUCCESS IN THE CULINARY WORLD? Of course, the love of cooking, and the love for food, but also guest satisfaction. I want to constantly wow guests and create a memorable culinary experience for them, not just a good meal, and when I see that happening it makes it all worth it. WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN? Always be ready to learn. IF THERE WAS ANYONE YOU COULD COOK WITH, INCLUDING PEOPLE FROM THE PAST, WHO WOULD IT BE? I would like to go back and cook with the old Nawabs in Lucknow who created Indian cuisine in the absence of equipment, refrigeration and other modern things we take for granted. It’s incredible how far we have come but I would be fascinated to go back and learn how they created the extraordinary food that they did. WHAT ASPECT OF BEING A CHEF IS MOST GRATIFYING FOR YOU? Seeing guests have an excellent overall experience. HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR CUISINE? Indian Accent showcases inventive Indian cuisine by complementing the flavours and traditions of India with global ingredients and techniques.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

WHAT GOLDEN RULES DO YOU HAVE IN THE KITCHEN? Smile and be ready to learn, particularly from each other. We all have our own strengths, so we may as well share and utilise them. HOW DO YOU PLAN THE MENU? WHAT ARE THE KEY ELEMENTS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IN A GOOD MENU DESIGN? I take inspiration for Indian Accent menus from day to day life; flavours I come across from different regions of India, as each has its own distinct style and something new to offer. I always look to create balance across a menu so it’s not overwhelming, and the dishes offered complement each other. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE INGREDIENT TO COOK WITH? I’d say one of my favourite ingredients to cook with is coconut. It is so flexible and works with so many other flavor profiles, both sweet and savoury, and of course is delicious on its own too. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SPICE TO COOK WITH? I don’t have one particular spice that’s my favourite. In India we use a lot of spice blends, as obviously there are so many combinations that can create an entirely new flavour. One of my favourites is Chaat Masala as it’s very versatile. I use it in everything from salads and curries right through to desserts. WHAT IS YOUR MOST INDISPENSABLE KITCHEN TOOL? A wok, it can be used for many dishes, not only for stir frying but also for slow cooking, fast cooking, frying and smoking. It is an essential item in my kitchen. WHAT’S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU’VE EVER EATEN? I ate ‘Century Egg’ in Hong Kong, an egg traditionally preserved in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, quicklime and rice hulls for several weeks to several months. It has a very strong flavor.


ONE DISH YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? Mushroom risotto – it’s my ultimate comfort food.

It’s all the little details that help push a restaurant to the next level.

WHICH IS THE DISH ON THE RESTAURANT’S MENU YOU EAT MOST? I rarely get time to eat at the restaurant as it’s always busy. But when I do, I usually choose the black dairy dal, it’s creamy, comforting and filling.

WHAT CITIES DO YOU LIKE FOR CULINARY TRAVEL? I love New York for its food scene. Whether you’re looking to spend $10 or $1,000 you can get great food across the city, at any time of the day or night.

ARE THERE ANY FOODS YOU JUST DON’T LIKE? I don’t like squid. I’m just not a fan of the texture and don’t understand why people love it so much!

WHAT’S THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER EATEN? The best meal I’ve ever had was at a restaurant in Stockholm called Mathias Dahlgren. It was a mushroom tasting menu, and the flavours were just incredible, not to mention the service was perfect as was the whole atmosphere of the place.

WHAT IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT BIG THING IN THE FOOD WORLD? I think chefs are going to continue to focus more on the dining experience as a whole. Traditionally the mark of a good restaurant can be boiled down to good food, and good service, but I think as that is so widely offered, restaurants need to differentiate themselves further. This can be achieved by factoring in the experience as a whole, from décor to music, to the staff being trained on when to approach a table and when to hold back, to knowing the stories behind a dish.

IF YOU WEREN’T DOING WHAT YOU DO NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING INSTEAD? I would probably be running our family gas station in India. WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU? For now, we would just like to focus on the three Indian Accent restaurants in New Delhi, London and New York.

INGREDIENTS 1 | MUSHROOMS, WATER CHESTNUTS

METHOD

ŸŸ Water chestnuts, cubed 2 tbsp ŸŸ Morel mushrooms, 2 nos. (medium size) ŸŸ Japanese shimeji mushrooms, 5–6 nos. (cut from base) ŸŸ Oyster mushrooms, sliced 2 tbsp ŸŸ Cèpe mushrooms, sliced 2 tbsp ŸŸ Asparagus tips 5 nos. ŸŸ Fresh coriander leaves, chopped 1 tbsp

2 | CURRY ŸŸ Oil 2 tsp ŸŸ Black mustard seeds ½ tsp ŸŸ Split urad dal (washed) ½ tsp ŸŸ Curry leaves 5–6 nos. ŸŸ Grated fresh coconut 2 tsp ŸŸ Masala gravy 4 tbsp ŸŸ Coconut milk 3 tbsp

3 | DOSAI BATTER ŸŸ Rice 150 gms ŸŸ Split urad dal 50 gms ŸŸ Fenugreek seeds ½ tsp ŸŸ Baking powder ½ tsp ŸŸ Salt to taste

4 | DOSAIS ŸŸ Salted butter 2 tsp

5 | TO SERVE ŸŸ Fresh red chillies or cress as garnish (optional)

A | PREPARE DOSAI BATTER 1. Soak lentils and fenugreek seeds together, and the rice separately in water. Add sufficient water till it covers the lentils and rice. After 3–4 hours, drain the water and grind the lentils with fenugreek, and the rice, separately into a batter. The batter should be of pourable consistency. 2. Check that the rice and lentils are well ground. Combine both the batters. Add salt and baking powder. 3. Allow to ferment in a warm place till the batter rises to double the quantity. When fermented, mix the batter well. The batter should be thick enough to spread on a griddle. Add water only if required.

B| PREPARE THE CURRY 1. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and allow to crackle. 2. Add split urad dal and curry leaves. Add grated coconut and sauté. Add masala gravy. 3. When the masala starts to leave the bottom of the pan, add coconut milk. Add water only if required, as the gravy should not be too runny. The thickness of the gravy should be such that it will completely coat the mushrooms.

C | PREPARE THE DOSAIS 1. Heat a flat frying pan. Spread the dosai batter (similar to making a pancake) to make a circle of 5-inch diameter. Scrape off any excess batter, as the dosai should be paper thin and crisp. Spoon butter in the centre. When one side is golden and crisp, remove from the pan and roll immediately in the shape of a cone.

D | PREPARE THE MUSHROOMS 1. Heat the prepared curry in a pan. Add all the mushrooms and water chestnuts. Stir for 2 minutes. Ensure all the mushroom pieces are well coated. Add asparagus tips and toss well. Finish with remaining butter and chopped coriander.

E | SERVE 1. Place the gravy-coated mushrooms in a bowl. Garnish with fresh red chillies or cress. Serve with a crisp dosai on the side.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019


FOR BEDTIME LUXURY AND COMFORT For the ultimate indulgence in sleeping comfort, a pure cashmere wool quilt is a luxury choice. Comfortably warm, lightweight and luxuriously soft, the finely constructed cashmere wool quilt by Royal Dream invites unchallenged cosiness with its everlasting quality and style. Ideal for the cooler months, the premium quilt provides maximum warmth whilst also being luxuriously lightweight and comfortable. A fine touch of elegance, it makes every night’s sleep a luxury experience. A natural fibre, cashmere wool is also a natural insulator, combining breathability and excellent temperature regulation. Its auto-thermal regulation properties allow it to perfectly maintain an unchanged body temperature whatever the weather. It is also hypo-allergenic and dust mite-free. All in all, it adds up to a better and more restful sleep. Only a small amount of cashmere fleece can be harvested from each cashmere goat every year, making cashmere wool very expensive. Apart from its rarity, cashmere is so highly appreciated for its softness, lightness, airy, silky feel and outstanding warmth without the weight. In fact cashmere wool can be up to eight times warmer than the wool of sheep. Prone to chilliness on those cold winter nights? Cashmere wool bedding is just the right thing. It pampers and indulges.

The cashmere wool used by Royal Dream originates from the cashmere goats living in mountainous areas of Asia. Made according to OEKO-TEX standards, each quilt is compassionately manufactured in environmentally friendly production facilities. The company proves the authenticity of products with valid certificates and ensures customers get 100% natural wool products. There is nothing at all like the reassuring weight of a premium cashmere wool quilt. Packed with a density of 1,400 grams per square metre, it is beautifully soft and fluffy to the touch, yet durable and strong. It provides plenty of warmth when it is needed most and is best suited to winter temperatures since wool traps body heat quickly and efficiently. With a light and natural colour palette, the quilt slips harmoniously into either classic or contemporary bedroom schemes. The quilt is available in three sizes: 140 x 200, 160 x 200 and 220 x 200 centimetres. Made for easy care, it is machine washable with wool detergents, at 30C on wool cycle with no spin. Soft, warm, comforting – the amazing lure of owning a cashmere quilt is undeniable. An investment piece, the purely indulgent cashmere quilt from Royal Dream is the ultimate wool quilt and a must for this coming winter. royaldream.eu

ICONIC, STYLISH AND IMMENSELY HANDY A versatile workhorse that keeps its good looks and shape, the well-crafted, all-purpose tote by L.L. Bean is our bag of choice for everyday, everything and everywhere. The Boat and Tote is truly one of the most iconic American designs that is simply perfect just the way it is. There is a reason the Boat and Tote by L.L. Bean is a beloved classic: it is stylish without sacrificing utility, durability or portability. Thanks to its superb quality and workmanship, it will last almost forever. Moreover, it is easily the best value for a tote bag that we have come across. Introduced as Bean’s Ice Carrier almost 75 years ago, the Boat and Tote was billed as a bag made of builders’ canvas for hauling ice from car to ice chest. Today, the tote is used everywhere from grocery stores to gardens, from beaches to bedroom closets. Still embodying timeless sensibilities, the legendary tote is perfect in just about every way. Eminently practical, the uses are endless for the sturdy tote. Handcrafted in Maine since 1944 – one tote at a time – the bag really is built for the long haul. It is constructed from heavy-duty, 24-ounce cotton canvas that is both water-resistant and wear-resistant. The double-layer base and double-stitched overlapped seams are of nylon so they will not rot or break, giving the bag its sturdiness and durability. There is no risk of overloading the bag, since it has been tested to hold up to 226 kilos. The strong and sturdy structure allows it to stand upright on its own, making it easy to pack up and access its content. For peace of mind, there is a 100% satisfaction guaranteed warranty: Just return it within a year of purchase for a refund. After that year, L.L. Bean will consider any items for return if they are found to be defective due to materials or craftsmanship. One can never have too many of L.L. Bean’s totes, as they are multi-tasking miracles, holding beach gear, groceries, kids’ and dog toys, gardening tools and travel gear. They also work well for organising and storing items.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

The bags’ endless uses are further enhanced by the fact that there are four sizes: ŸŸ Small: It has the capability to hold all those daily essentials such as wallet, keys, sunglasses, phone, make-up bag, and even a book and water bottle. Capacity: 8 litres. ŸŸ Medium: For the on-the-go sort of person who needs a reliable tote bag, the medium Boat and Tote is ideal as an everyday carrier. It is great for errands to the market, library, gym, etc. It easily doubles as a perfect school or office bag and holds a laptop, documents and several books. Capacity: 17 litres. ŸŸ Large: Another winner is the large Boat and Tote. It is great for groceries, laundry, picnics and trips to the beach. It also doubles as a great overnight bag or for weekend travel. It can comfortably hold many items such as a change of clothes, extra pair of shoes, toiletry bag and notebook. Capacity: 35 litres. ŸŸ Extra-large: It is a great beach bag for a day in the sun with the family. It can hold all the towels, kids’ toys, books, paddleball and changes of clothes. It is also a great weekender bag for a road trip or camping. Capacity: 56 litres. The tote comes in a natural tone, with a pop of colour from its contrasting handles and base. Colour choices include green camouflage, black, fern green, blue, red, dark green, regatta blue, olive grey, peony, bronze yellow, aqua, and alpine gold. There is a choice of open-top and zippered top, as well as a choice of length of handles – regular or over-the-shoulder. One may also order a custom monogram bag for that unique gift that is both personal and practical. I do not think I have ever owned a more useful bag. It has been a constant in our home for the last couple of years. It goes everywhere with me: the beach, the grocery store, the dry cleaner, the gym, weekend trips, etc. The L.L. Bean Boat and Tote bag is, in my opinion, the ultimate carry-all. global.llbean.com

THE PERFECT TRAVEL SHOES WITH A FASHIONABLE FLAIR Shoes are perhaps the utmost essential gear to contemplate when packing for vacation or a business trip. A decent pair of shoes might not be the most exciting consideration whilst packing, but they can make or devastate one’s day.

Astonishingly lightweight, there is a strong emphasis on comfort by embedding energy foam and padding into the shoes at the pressure points to both propel and ease the foot. The full rubber outsole comes with concealed Grand. ØS technology.

I have been looking for ages for travel shoes that are designed to maximise comfort without compromising style. Versatility is another important element that makes for a good pair of travel shoes. If the same shoes can effortlessly slip from shopping, to a 6-hour walking tour and on to dinner, sans blisters, then that search for the perfect travel shoes is finally over.

Timelessly elegant, the crisply pointed-toe shoes are available in a selection of styles, such as front bow detailing, and colours that include black, sand, burgundy and metallic. Ultra-flattering and smart looking, the shoes’ sleek, minimal silhouette offers incredible versatility for a range of occasions.

Ticking all the boxes, the 3.ZERØGRAND Bow Skimmer Flats from Cole Haan are the best travel shoes for refusing to sacrifice comfort or style. Super-comfy, lightweight (i.e. packable) and versatile, the flats are stylishly designed to transition from the workplace to a night out, from well-deserved holidays to important business trips. Flats are great multipurpose travel shoes but often the soles are too thin to support hours of walking or sightseeing. Ergonomically engineered with a highly functional design, the shoes from Cole Haan are made with their latest 3.ZERØGRAND comfort technology for a fit that moulds to the foot and cushions every step. Grand is Cole Haan’s name for innovation, and the innovative approach that comes from marrying craft, style and engineering.

Supremely comfortable and expertly crafted, they are made from smooth leather and are fully lined. Founded in 1928, Cole Haan has been long known for its quality, craftsmanship and style. By often teaming up with prominent designers, athletes and style-setters, Cole Haan has commanded a position as a leader in terms of innovation and excellence. CFDA-nominated menswear designer Todd Snyder and a trio of ballerinas from the New York City Ballet have collaborated with Cole Haan on contemporary collections. For a polished and effortlessly stylish look, there is no going wrong with the Skimmer Flats from Cole Haan. This is a shoe that is actually made for fashionable walking as it delivers extraordinary all-day comfort with immense flair and finesse. colehaan.com

A TRUE WORKHORSE FOR SERIOUS BAKERS A stand mixer can easily be one of the most exciting purchases ever made for the kitchen, especially for anyone who bakes a lot.

It is a solid machine built to last decades, and is often passed down over several generations, thanks to its outstanding functionality and long-term reliability.

Bread dough is extremely tough on a machine. Frequent use will wear out many of the mass-produced stand mixers, especially if they are used for heavier doughs and yeasted breads. For those, a strong mixer is needed, one that will keep going long enough to form the gluten that is essential for a good loaf of bread.

The mixer’s design, durability, capacity, stability and quality far exceed most other brands. It is a very powerful mixer that excels at heavy and large batches of bread dough, delivering smooth, silky and elastic dough every time. Impressively, it can handle both very small and very big jobs extremely well, and has been a favourite amongst serious bakers for more than 75 years.

For regular bread makers, especially those making large batches or heavier doughs, a high-quality stand mixer to help out with all of that kneading can be enormously helpful. The Ankarsrum Assistent Original is our top pick mixer for bread making, and should be considered for any serious baker as well. It is, in our opinion, the benchmark standard, thanks to its superior performance, construction and ease of use. The biggest difference between dense, heavy baked goods and delightfully textured products is proper development of the gluten in the dough. The powerful Ankarsrum mixer is a master of kneading technique.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

Impressive capacity with extraordinary performance The Ankarsrum provides invaluable help when baking everything from sponge cakes to sourdough loaves, from bagels to pizza dough. From very large batches to very small, it really can mix anything. The huge 7-litre bowl makes it the ideal machine for making large batches of dough. It can mix 1.5 litres of dough liquid and five kilos of dough without a problem – or 2.7 kilos of flour. The dough comes out wonderfully smooth and elastic.

Ankarsrum

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019


Although it is the best mixer by far for large dough and bread recipes, it also works wonderfully well with batches as small as 450 grams of flour. We have found it has consistently produced quality results with the greatest of ease, whether we are making thick cookie dough, whipping a meringue or preparing as many as six loaves of delicious bread in a single batch. There does not seem to be any strain on the motor, no reduction of the RPMs, no strange noises. This is the real deal. Whether mixing up a small batch of cookies, or using it to its full capacity, this mixer is a dream.

Clever design and technology Rather than the traditional planetary design with spinning attachments, Ankarsrum’s motor-in-base design enables one of the mixer’s most unique features: the bowl rotates while the attachments remain stationary. This results in a much more stable mixer (weight at bottom) and provides a unique mixing action that does a superior job on breads and heavy dough recipes. Another standout feature is the unique dough roller and dough knife. With less time and effort, this time-tested method effectively mimics kneading dough by hand, thanks to its unique roller and knife design. The moveable steel arm holds the roller in place, allowing the machine to simultaneously knead and mix doughs and batters. The deeply fluted roller acts as the baker’s fingers, with the knife mimicking the palm of the hand. The dough knife folds the dough with a rhythmic motion while the roller provides a powerful massaging action, making for exceptional mixing and kneading. The fluted roller and knife tools knead the dough without tearing it, unlike mass-produced dough hooks, making the dough light and fluffy. The cleverly designed roller can be easily adjusted and moved. The separate dough knife is one of the more brilliant attachments we have seen. The knife sits along the side of the bowl and scrapes as the bowl turns, meaning the machine does not have to be stopped and the bowl scraped every minute.

The biggest difference between dense, heavy baked goods and delightfully textured products is proper development of the gluten in the dough, and the powerful Ankarsrum mixer really excels at producing dough with perfectly developed gluten. Once the proper method is learned, the home baker will never go back to a traditional overhead stand mixer.

Thoughtful features for perfect results Truly ingenious, Ankarsrum comes with an expert array of carefully engineered features that have been incredibly well thought-out. Easily control what ingredients are added and when, and how long the dough is kneaded for, all along making any desired adjustments during the process. Whereas most stand mixers have the motor in the top of the unit and a tilt-back head, Ankarsrum’s motor is in the base. This means super-easy access when adding ingredients to the open bowl, while at the same time seeing all the contents. It also has a 12-minute timer and a variable bowl speed control that adjusts from 40 to 140 RPM, giving more freedom and precision to the baking process. Impressively, the mixer has a self-adjusting speed sensor, meaning that the machine automatically adjusts the motor torque and speed according to the load. Thanks to overload protection, the machine will automatically stop if the dough is too heavy and the motor is put under too much strain. We also like the lid, which means we can proof the bread in the same bowl as it is mixed. The control panel is angled for comfortable use, and the large timer and speed controls are attractive and easy to read. Another useful feature is the removable power cord that simplifies clean-up and storage. It comes in a low profile to fit under overhead cabinets, and being relatively light at just 8.6 kilos, it is easy to move.

Bowls and attachments for all mixing, kneading and whipping needs

We have not found any reports of burned out motors due to mixing heavy doughs.

The Ankarsrum Original includes two bowls: ŸŸ A stainless bowl ŸŸ A clear Tritan, BPA-free whisking/beater bowl

Swedish design and engineering at its best

The large 7-litre stainless steel bowl holds up to 19 cups of flour. With a great design, it has a curved-in rim to keep the contents inside the bowl. The bowl does not have a centre cone to get in the way or any seams or shafts, which makes clean-up easy. The clear 3.5-litre bowl produces beautiful meringues, beating up to 20 egg whites – or as few as two – with outstanding results. One can also cream butter, margarine and shortening with sugar to the creamiest texture for every cookie need. In addition to the dough roller, the dough knife and the proving lid, there is a shortcrust dough hook, multi-wire balloon whisks and single-wire beater whisks. It really satisfies all mixing, kneading and whipping needs.

Powerful motor Thanks to its powerful and uniquely engineered motor, one can mix even heavier dough with ease. Synonymous with exceptional Swedish quality, the mixer’s motor has been developed and manufactured by Ankarsrum Motors. Founded 350 years ago, Ankarsrum Motors AB manufactures universal motors for kitchen appliances such as Vitamix. The Ankarsrum’s advanced transmission features a belt drive that transmits power more efficiently than common gear drives used in mass-marketed stand mixers. They maintain their higher efficiency and power for years and years. The efficient, high-torque 1,500-watt motor runs smoothly and quietly, providing ample power to mix and knead even the largest batch of heavy bread dough without straining. It also allows the machine to be both strong and quiet. Moreover, the mixer has the motor on the bottom of the unit for increased stability and efficiency.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

Handmade in the small town of Ankarsrum in Sweden, Ankarsum Assistent Original embodies decades-old pride of craftsmanship. All of the aluminium parts – the chassi, arm attachment, mincer and electrical motor – are still cast, processed and assembled in Ankarsrum. The plastic components are sourced and manufactured by companies in the region. The kitchen machine was first developed in the 1940s by industrial designer Alvar Lenning under the three watchwords of quality, functionality and design. Ankarsrum Assistent Original became Sweden’s first kitchen machine and is just as popular today. Since its launch in 1940, 1.5 million Ankarsrum Assistent Original machines have been sold in more than 30 countries. Launched last year, the new Ankarsrum Assistent Original has been awarded the seal of excellence by Plus X Award – the world’s largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle – in four categories: quality, design, ease of use and functionality. Ankarsrum Assistent Original was also awarded Best of the Best – Kitchen Innovation of the Year 2018 in the Small Electrical Appliances category. The Kitchen Innovation of the Year award is among the most coveted in the industry. Based on consumer ratings, it therefore enjoys a great level of prestige and is always considered a high recommendation to buyers. The reason for this very special commendation: the latest model of the traditional machine impresses with its outstanding functionality, innovation, design and sustainability. With an attractive design, the mixer is available in a wide range of beautiful colours, such as black, white, silver, cream, red, blue, lilac, pink, orange and green.

Impressive warranty Users attest that this machine will last decades, even with heavy use. For peace of mind, it comes with a 7-year warranty on the motor.


Ankarsrum

Unlimited capabilities With an array of 18 optional attachments, Ankarsrum adds versatility and functionality to cooking – from blending, juicing, slicing, grating, flour making, grain flaking and cookie pressing, to pasta making, berry straining, meat grinding, sausage stuffing, and more. Get inspired from Ankarsrum’s book, “Eat Like A Genius”, which presents the favourite recipes of some of the leading minds of all time.

As far as stand mixers go, it doesn’t get any better than Ankarsrum We fell head over heels for this incredibly powerful Swedish-designed machine, which mixes doughs better than any we have tried before. Engineered for exceptional performance, the Ankarsrum mixer is everything we could ask for as a serious home baker. Ease of adding ingredients, ease of clean up, plenty of power and superior results – this iconic mixer has it all. ankarsrum.com/en Note: The Ankarsrum Assistent Original has been offered in past years as the Ankarsrum Original, Electrolux Assistent, Electrolux Classic Assistent, the Magic Mill DLX Mixer and the Verona Assistent.

A true workhorse in my kitchen, the Blendtec high-speed Designer 725 Blender has really been a game changer for me. Stylish, functional and oh so powerful, it can handle an exceptional variety of tasks with ease, and the end result is perfect, time after time. Actually, the cult-like status that Blendtec blenders have acquired did not make sense to me until I had the opportunity to try it out. Then I realised what all the hype was about. Up till then, I had been using a regular blender, and I did not have any idea how much versatility a powerhouse blender can bring to the kitchen. The Blendtec Designer 725 Blender has a high-power motor and large blades that allow it to blend any ingredient quickly and evenly. I have used it faithfully and frequently ever since I got it, and it is now by far my most loved and most used kitchen appliance. I use it several times a week. Green smoothies in the WildSide+ jar every morning for the family; the WildSide+ jar comes in handy again for sauce mixes; or I use the Twister jar for all sorts of blends such as salad dressings, chia puddings, vegan cheese blends and more. I’m in blending heaven.

The feature takes out the guesswork as the automatic blend cycles ensure the desired consistency and texture is achieved, whilst minimising the risk of over-processing. The hands-free programme also provides time to attend to, and finish other tasks in the kitchen.

ever. It features a practical, easy-to-use touchscreen with a speed slider and different blend programme settings. The icons are back-lit, and disappear completely when not in use, leaving a beautiful, clean appearance. Moreover, gone are the days when blenders would harbour mould and bacteria in their old-fashioned knobs, push-buttons and dials. The 725’s sleek touchscreen is flat, smooth, and cleaned in one swipe. The Blendtec Designer 725 is truly a blender with a brain. The exclusive and immensely impressive SmartBlend technology senses and identifies potential problems that could interfere with the perfect blend, including loading errors, overheating and air pockets. Then the LCD will tell users how to correct them: With messages such as “add more liquid,” there is no more guessing what is going wrong. The blender has a rubber foot which is great for two things. One is that it helps the blender stay in place. Another benefit is that it reduces the blender’s operating temperature by preventing outgoing hot air from coming in contact with the incoming cool air. Built for maximum performance, the blender is lightweight with a space-saving design that makes it easy to store and fit under or inside cabinets.

ŸŸ Multi-Speed Pulse function

Smartly designed jars

The super-advanced touch slider allows fine-tuning of the speed, all with the slide of a finger. With an impressive 100 speed settings, it gives maximum control and seamless precision blending to customise any recipe. Modify the speed by one degree at a time, from 1-100. The smart LCD goes even one step farther by showing which speed to use for stirring, chopping, mixing, blending or pureeing. It brings restaurant-quality food right to the home kitchen.

One of the great things I love about Blendtec is the range of well-designed jars to choose from. No more worry about those notoriously difficult foods: Blendtec addresses everything from nut butters to single-serve smoothies. The WildSide+ Blendtec Blender Jar is the workhorse. It is the most versatile jar and comes standard with the Designer 725 Blender.

Elegantly designed, the Designer 725 blender comes with a stylish, cutting-edge touchscreen interface.

This is the patented jar design that revolutionised highspeed blending. The WildSide+ features a square and 5-sided jar design that allows a high-powered vortex to be created in the centre to automatically pull all ingredients down into the blade for smooth consistency. Instead of ingredients spinning around in a circle as they do in a round jar, they hit the flat side of the jar. Inertia then carries the ingredients up the side of the jar until they reach the top of the mix. At this point, they turn around and head back down, right into the business end of the blades. This unique design eliminates the need for a tamper.

Making walk-away blending possible, the blender features modern touch controls that not only look great, but make everything from efficient blending to clean-up easier than

I also appreciate that with Blendtec’s wide, square base and 2-pronged blade, it is easy to scrape out every last bit of the mixture. Little, if any food is wasted.

Another notable feature is the Multi-Speed Pulse, to be used for an added burst of power at any speed. It is handy for chopping, mincing, whipping and other momentary tasks that do not require a long blend cycle. Select amongst 100 pulse speeds as opposed to just a single speed that is normally offered by standard blenders.

Sleek design and intelligent technology

Uniquely formulated for an extra-long life, the 2.66L jar is made from impact-resistant, BPA-free copolyester. Additionally, high-contrast, easy-to-read measuring marks (for cups, ounces, millilitres and centilitres) are included on Blendtec’s jars to help in the adding of just the right amounts of ingredients. Thoughtfully designed with attention to detail, the Blendtec jars come with Vented Gripper Lids that allow the adding of ingredients to the blend through a removable central opening, which in addition to being much safer, also allows for the proper dispersal of the extra pressure produced when blending hot liquids.

Bigger, stronger and safer blades Blendtec’s incredible blenders are known for their power. Having said that, a Blendtec motor’s awesome power would be wasted on a wimpy blade. To handle the immense power, the blade needs to be bigger, thicker, and more robust than other blender blades. Tuned for heavy use, the Blendtec blades are made of cold-forged hardened steel and are up to 80% thicker and 10 times stronger than other blender blades. One of the reasons Blendtec’s blades can pulverise just about anything is that their patented vertical wingtips and precision angles transfer more power than other blades. Plus, the distinct single-blade design allows ingredients to fall easily in front of and behind the blade, rather than pushing ingredients away from the blending vortex. Designed for faster, superior blends as well as for safety, all Blendtec jars come with a single blade that is blunt, as opposed to the normal sharp blender blades. The dull blade crushes the ingredients at the bottom and pulverises virtually anything, rather than slicing them. And the blade is completely safe to clean, too.

Powerful motor and unbreakable drive socket The Blendtec blender features one of the most powerful motors in the home market, providing the same commercial strength and quality found in the best-equipped smoothie shops and restaurants. The Designer 725 comes with a high-speed 3.8 peak horsepower motor that utilises 1,800 watts, able to generate potent blending power that is up to any task.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

The motor can blend even the toughest ingredients – such as ice, frozen fruit and raw veggies – to a perfectly smooth consistency without any problems. The drive socket that spins the blade, transferring the power from the motor to the blade, has to be very powerful when dealing with high-speed blenders. Instead of relying on breakable plastic parts to spin the blades, the Blendtec blender features a hardened metal drive socket. This drive socket is unbreakable and never needs to be replaced.

Ease of cleaning Another smart feature is the blender’s specific selfcleaning mode. With a cup of water and a drop of dish soap, one can turn on the blender to do an automatic 30-second cleaning cycle. It should be enough to get rid of the remaining ingredients inside. For hardened food debris, manual cleaning could be necessary. The Blendtec jar is really easy to clean with its flawless square design and 2-prong blade. The sleek design also makes it much easier to clean, requiring a simple wipe with a damp cloth. No switches and knobs to get dirty and grimy.

The twister jar is simply genius The optional Twister Jar alone is enough to make me love my Blendtec. Even though it is an optional extra and added expense, it is so worth the investment when looking to do thicker blends. The Twister Jar is specifically designed for the toughest and thickest blends such as nut butters, hummus, pesto, guacamole, thick sauces and smaller serving sizes. The top of the jar has a lid with attached scrapers that can be twisted to push thick products off the jar walls to ensure an even, smooth blend. It is a genius idea really, because in less than 60 seconds it produces home-made peanut butter without any chunks. Or almond butter. Or creamy banana ice cream, or a thick milkshake.

Engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. Blendtec engineers, designs and assembles all their blenders in the American state of Utah, with components either manufactured in-house or sourced primarily from the U.S.A. Some components of the blenders are made outside the USA, such as Germany.


Blendtec

Regardless, only the highest quality parts and raw materials are used to ensure years of trouble-free blending, such as the metal die-cast finish and cold-forged steel blades.

Impressive warranty Blendtec is so confident in the quality craftsmanship and durability of their blenders that they offer a very attractive warranty. All new blenders and included jar come with an 8-year warranty. Jars that are purchased separately will have a 3-year warranty.

A marvel of innovation, efficiency and power The Blendtec Designer 725 Blender is much more than a smoothie blender. It is capable of blending just

about anything. I have been putting it through its paces with excellent results each time. I have made creamy soups, thick dips, sticky dough, dense cake batter, fruit smoothies, boozy blended drinks, cheese sauces, delicious nut butters and home-made almond milk, as well as milling my own flours – and much more. Versatile, effortless and indispensable, this model has all the features I want in a blender: power, smart technology, an advanced interactive display and thoughtful design. In my opinion, this Blendtec blender is worth its weight in gold. For anyone who loves cooking, this multi-tasking Designer 725 Blender by Blendtec is one of the best investments they can ever make. blendtec.com / blendtec.uk

THE ULTIMATE CHOICE FOR THE ULTIMATE FRYING RESULTS For many home chefs, the best frying pan is going to be non-stick, oven-safe and able to withstand wear and tear. It is just as important, however, to avoid harmful chemicals often used in non-stick cookware and as a result, a new generation of safe cookware has been launched. Founded in 1731, ZWILLING can always be relied upon for superior quality cookware. Its Prime non-stick frying pan is a standout performer, with an attractive look and eco-friendly credentials. With its high quality, versatility and energy-efficiency, the non-stick frying pan delivers great frying results. Amateur cooks and professionals alike are impressed by its advanced technology and functional, aesthetic design. Food simply does not stick to it. It fries quickly and evenly across the surface of the pan and lets the food slip onto the plate once ready. The coated frying pan is especially suited for the gentle cooking of foods such as omelettes, pancakes, scrambled and other egg dishes. It also is well suited for the gentle frying of fish and vegetables, and for preparing rice dishes such as Nasi Goreng. The Prime non-stick frying pan is engineered with the highest precision to ensure the user enjoys the durability, safety and performance they demand. The frying pan uses the special SIGMA Clad 5-ply material, allowing the surface to heat up evenly whilst guaranteeing long heat retention. The three middle layers are made of different aluminium alloys that form a particularly strong core, allowing for even and fast heat distribution right to the very edge of the frying pan whilst retaining the base’s stability. The core is encased in induction-compatible 18/10 stainless steel to make the pan hygienic, scratch-resistant and easy to clean. High heat is unnecessary as the pan’s aluminium core is very effective in retaining heat, helping to save energy whilst cooking.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

Also boasting eco-friendly qualities, the Prime frying pan uses Ceraforce Ultra coating that is free from both PFOA and PTFE. If accidentally overheated, the innovative non-stick technology can withstand temperatures as high as 450C without emitting toxic gases, blistering or peeling. The quality non-stick properties deliver exceptionally good scratch and wear resistance. The safe non-stick cookware range of frying pans can be used on all heat sources, including induction, and is ovensafe up to 200C. With a clean design, the frying pan looks stylish on the hob with its shiny stainless steel exterior. The pan’s broad rim ensures easy pouring. The ergonomic handle, designed for comfort and balance, guarantees safe handling and stays cool during cooking. A further practical feature is the loop at the end of the handle, allowing the pans to be hung up to save space and ensuring that one always has access to these most important and decorative cooking utensils. The popular Prime range now has non-stick frying pans in three sizes: 20, 24 and 28 centimetres. As an option, there are separate glass lids available that allow one to monitor the food easily. The lids can also be used in the oven up to a temperature of 200C. The non-stick surface makes cleaning extremely easy – a few wipes with a soapy sponge and it is ready to use again.

Many of us who are looking for ways to make healthy eating easier and more creative swear by our spiralizer. It is easy to see why so many are obsessed with spiralizing, as this must-have kitchen gadget creates low-carb, nutritious recipes in minutes. Spiralizing allows us to turn even the most mundane fruit and vegetables into a variety of spaghetti-like spirals, noodles and ribbons. A spiralizer allows the incorporating of more vegetables and fruits into our diets with minimum effort. The possibilities for spiralizing seem almost endless. A spiralizer can handle more than just courgettes. Many can transform sweet potatoes, cucumbers, apples, beetroot, carrots and more – making them that much more versatile. Apples, plantain and pears also make a fabulous addition to salads and desserts. Great for replacing pasta, rice or chips with a healthier alternative, spiralizing is opening up a slew of new meal possibilities. Stunning pasta and noodle dishes, awesome salads, delicious ramen, tasty stir fries, hearty casseroles, savoury fritters and decorative desserts can be created with a spiraliser. Served hot, cold or raw, options range from a Sweet potato noodle salad with creamy chipotle miso sauce, to Spicy shrimp with pesto noodles and Spiralized apple crumble. For anyone not already owning one, now is the time to hop onto the spiralizing bandwagon. Spiralizing is part of our weekly recipe routine, and after having used my manual spiralizer for a couple of years, I was so glad to upgrade to an electric one. The KULT X Spiralizer by WMF is an easy-to-use electric spiralizer, and a great solution to healthy eating. At the same time, one can indulge in gourmet food without the guilt. I’m completely obsessed with this effective gadget, as it is perfect for transforming vegetables and fruits into spiral or ribbon cuts – effortlessly. The handy tool makes light work of spiralizing as there is no laborious manual twisting involved. Insert the vegetables/fruits into the chute using the food pusher and let the blade do the rest. The result is consistent cuts in seconds.

The electric spiral cutter – and its five extra-sharp cutting cones and additional attachment for grating and slicing – prepares nine fruit and vegetable varieties in a snap. The cutting inserts with WMF Perfect Cut technology include spaghetti (approx. three millimetres wide), linguine (approx. five millimetres), tagliatelle (approx. nine millimetres), pappardelle (approx. 35 millimetres) and tornados (approx. 20 millimetres). The spiralized vegetables are collected neatly in a transparent container with a 1.25-litre capacity, minimising mess – a feature I really like. The spiralizer can be used for all hard and firm types of fruit and vegetables, ranging from courgettes, carrots, broccoli stems, sweet potatoes and cucumbers to radish, beetroot, apples and pears. One can also make excellent vegetable pasta using parsnips, celeriac, cabbage or pumpkin. Alternatively, one can use the mixer to shred the spirals while they are still raw to create veggie rice, which expands the repertoire of recipes even farther. Go for stuffed peppers, risotto, curries and paellas using this vegetable rice. The electric spiralizer is designed with safety in mind, as the cutting unit is located inside the appliance. In addition, non-slip feet keep it firmly in place. For maximum durability, the WMF KULT X Spiralizer is made from quality Cromargan® 18/10 stainless steel and the container is made from BPA-free plastic. Thanks to its compact design and the integrated cable winder – which means the cable is hidden inside the casing – the WMF KULT X Spiralizer is also handy to store away. It is easy to clean, too, since all the removable parts are dishwasher safe. We guarantee that this electric spiralizer from WMF will become a favourite not only amongst healthy lifestyle devotees and vegetarians, but also amongst those who have not yet found their way to the world of vegetables. Alternatively, if one’s healthy recipe repertoire has lost its lustre, this electric spiralizer will add a twist. Healthy eating does not need to be dull. wmf.com

ONLY GOOD SKIN DAYS AHEAD Ziggie Bergman, award-winning Facial Reflexologist, expert in holistic anti-ageing and creator of the Zone Face Lift – hailed as a credible alternative to Botox by a loyal following of beauty editors and celebrity devotees – has created the world’s first anti-ageing elixir that is using sacred plants and crystals to renew and lift the skin. Studying with Native American shamans and healers in New Mexico, Ziggie saw the medicinal power of plants to heal the body and spirit. Ever since, it has been her dream to apply this power to rejuvenate the skin and beautify the face. Recently launched and already the winner of 2018 Beauty Shortlist Awards in the Best Facial Oil catetory, Ziggie spent many years developing the Zone Face Lift Facial Elixir. Quite simply it is the best facial oil I have tried and I am absolutely obsessed with it. For me personally, the Zone Face Lift Facial Elixir ticks the clean, organic boxes wonderfully, but it is the high-performing results, intelligently handpicked natural extracts and oils, the strong feel-good comfort factor and emotional appeal that made it stand out for me. The anti-ageing facial elixir is blended with rare oils from plants used by Native American healers and renowned for their rejuvenating and anti-ageing properties. It is also infused with Amethyst crystals for even more healing properties. The result is a silky elixir that dramatically helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, repairs and lifts the skin and “smudges” the aura and spirit at the same time. It also hydrates and tightens the skin to make it firm and supple. This is a hard-working elixir with a light, non-greasy texture that delivers radiance-boosting actives to the skin, deeply and quickly.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

The concentrated intensive elixir boasts a blend of super-active ingredients, including: ŸŸ White poppy seed: A rare oil that firms, tightens and absorbs quickly. Traditionally used to heal burns and as an eye salve. ŸŸ Prickly pear: A powerful moisturiser that improves skin elasticity. New Mexico tribes roasted it to speed up healing, reduce swelling and treat rheumatism and viral infections. ŸŸ Amethyst crystal: This dream stone is known for its meditative qualities. It helps to balance emotional, spiritual and physical planes. ŸŸ White sage: Purifies the spirit and protects the skin. The sacred healing herb is used by Native Americans during cleansing spiritual ceremonies. Hand-crafted in the UK, the face elixir is made with 100% organic and natural ingredients that are ethically sourced and traceable. It is formulated with no parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances and colours, glycols, silicones, Peg, TEA or DEA. It is also vega-friendly and cruelty-free. The facial elixir is amazing, and combined with Ziggie’s Jade Sculpting & Lifting Massager it is out of this world. The massager, which Ziggie uses in her own Zone Face Lift Treatments, will help to tighten a sagging neckline, contour the jawline, lift the face and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It stimulates collagen and elastin production from the inside, whilst smoothing away puffiness with anti-ageing lymphatic drainage techniques. Using the elixir and the massager together really is a mini-facial and a wonderful ritual to lift one’s face and spirits. Get glowing results in just 60 seconds a day. Both the massager and the elixir come with a small card


Zone Face Lift

with a chart and instructions, showing some of the Zone Face Lift’s signature moves. I use the Elixir daily and now would not be without it. There is something magical about this product, and I feel as though the Elixir gives my face a little “re-set”. It feels very pure, calming and balancing, and at the same time it is incredibly potent and effective. The elixir keeps my skin firm, plump and radiant, whilst it softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I adore the gorgeous elixir and have great admiration for Ziggie Bergman. Some day – maybe next year – I will treat myself to her famed Zone Face Lift which is said to take years from one’s face. A pioneer in modern Facial Reflexology, Ziggie was the 2017 winner of the Association of Reflexologists Award for Excellence and Innovation in Modern Facial Reflexology for creating her ageing-well programme, Zone Face Lift, which is now being taught to therapists across the globe. Expect transformative results. This is beauty brilliance at its best. zonefacelift.com

Just three to four drops per application are all that is needed, so the bottle will last a long time.

A POWER DUO THAT DELIVERS GREAT RESULTS For those who are not already Aurelia fans, I would recommend investing in this award-winning brand’s Eye Revitalising Duo. I love the idea of a dual approach to eye radiance, and this product addresses the different needs of one’s eyes for both the morning and night. The powerhouse duo targets some of the worst enemies of one’s eye region – puffiness, fine lines and dark circles. Intelligently designed with age-fighting benefits, the combo consists of the refreshing Revitalise & Brighten Eye Dew and the reparative Illuminate & Smooth Puff Reduction Eye Cream. The two products work perfectly in synergy with one another, leaving the eyes hydrated, toned and refreshed. The Revitalise & Brighten Eye Dew is a high-performance, invigorating wrinkle-reduction serum for tired and puffy morning eyes. It features an innovative rollerball applicator for effective, easy and quick application. The cooling rollerball provides a soothing lymphatic drainage massage to ensure the serum absorbs, to brighten and firm the delicate eye area whilst delivering a burst of nourishment. I love the light texture for quick absorption and deep hydration. Enriched with jujube and olive extract, the dew helps to reduce inflammation and dark circles. Aurelia’s unique eye complex has been described as scientifically proven to result in an age correction improvement of five years in just 28 days of daily use. The Illuminate & Smooth Puff Reduction is a transformative eye cream that provides both immediate and long-lasting anti-ageing effects.

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

The deeply nourishing yet light-weight cream is packed with supercharged levels of Aurelia’s probiotic ingredients and bio-organic botanicals. Infused with arnica, centella asiatica and butcher’s broom, it works to amazing effect to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles, immediately brightening the eye area and erasing visible signs of fatigue. Coming in a jar with its own small black spatula, the cream holds a lovely rich texture, yet it is easily absorbed. The two products work brilliantly by themselves and give the delicate area around the eyes exactly what it needs, when it needs it. Ultimately, they are designed to work synergistically to deliver optimal results. For best results, layer the eye dew under the eye cream, morning and evening. After a few months of having used these two sumptuous products daily, the skin around my eyes seems smoother, brighter and more toned and firmer. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is made in Britain, using the purest of bio-organic ingredients sourced sustainably from around the world. The products are made without a long list of questionable ingredients, including suphates, parabens, mineral oils and MI, to name only a few. As the skincare industry shifts its focus toward non-toxic solutions, it is no surprise that editors and consumers throughout the world have gravitated to Aurelia Probiotic Skincare. The company continues to push boundaries of science and nature and has celebrated winning over 100 industry and consumer awards since 2013. The Eye Duo from Aurelia is everything I have always wanted in an eye product. Pure and potent, the duo delivers the correct amount of moisture, leaving the eye area youthful, smooth and energised. aureliaskincare.com

CULT BEAUTY Retinol is one ingredient that should be a part of every good nighttime skincare regimen. Unlike most anti-ageing ingredients, retinol has been extensively studied in clinical trials for both efficacy and safety. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that causes skin cells to turn over more rapidly, increasing collagen in the process. It is effective in reversing sun damage, fighting acne, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, banishing hyperpigmentation and shrinking pores. It is therefore no surprise that retinol comes recommended by nearly every dermatologist on the planet. For results-driven skin pampering, one cannot go wrong with the Retinol Fresh Skin Treatment from Skin Design London, a boutique cosmeceutical skincare range. It is an intensive, spa-strength anti-ageing retinol cream in a gel consistency, infused with five skin-boosting ingredients to improve cell turnover and restore collagen production. It promises to retexturise the skin, as well as reduce breakouts, pigmentation, dullness, lines and wrinkles in order to create a smoother, younger-looking skin. It is cleverly formulated with a host of anti-ageing, hydrating and regenerating ingredients, as well as intelligent irritation-reducing additives. The gentle yet effective formula may be used daily and boasts a cocktail of high-performing ingredients such as: ŸŸ Retinol: Stimulates cell regeneration and minimises fine lines and dullness to boost youthful radiance. ŸŸ Palmitoyl Tripeptide 3: Mimics collagen production and combats age-related loss of elasticity.

ŸŸ Aloe vera, green tea and rosehip blend: This redness-reducing blend soothes the skin whilst reducing potential inflammation and irritation.

ANCIENT WISDOM JOI Finding a good skincare brand can be life-changing. As one’s skin starts to look plumper, clearer, and more vibrant, one feels better on the inside, too. We are inundated with slick marketing and celebrities urging us to use certain products, and it is difficult to separate the good from the useless. We must do our homework. I test many skincare lines at work, and the Ayur-Medic brand is one that I rely on time and time again. A highly effective cosmeceutical product line, Ayur-Medic strikes a potent balance between ancient holistic principles of Ayurveda and state-of-the-art medical research to provide maximum results. It was created 24 years ago by two highly accomplished physicians – Dr. Raj Kanodia, a world-renowned Board Certified Surgeon, and Dr. Ezra Kest, a cosmetic dermatologist – plus a team of research professionals. Today, over 2,000 salons worldwide use Ayur-Medic. Blending Ayurvedic herbs and anti-ageing compounds with advanced Western dermatologic research, each product is uniquely formulated to effectively penetrate the skin, delivering all active ingredients directly to the dermal layer where collagen synthesis takes place. Stimulating collagen production can work to fill in wrinkles, prevent further oxidative damage caused by free radicals and give one’s skin a healthier, more youthful appearance.

Over the years, I have used many of Ayur-Medic’s products – including Retinol Cream, Neck & Chest Cream, Eye & Lip Line Corrector and Lemongrass Cleansing Gel – and I have never had any issues, only great results. Collagen loss is a primary factor in facial ageing and gradual disappearance of glowing skin. As a supportive and structural protein, collagen strengthens the skin and gives the face the firmness and volume of youth. It is key to healthy and youthful-looking skin. The fact is that when we reach our 20s, collagen production begins to taper off, and the quality of the collagen diminishes. So when I learnt about Ayur-Medic’s Collagen III Serum, which promises to kick collagen production into high gear, I could not wait to get my hands on it. I have loved everything I have tried from Ayur-Medic and I just knew this serum was going to be as high quality and effective as everything else in their stellar collection. Designed to have collagen-boosting and skin-firming properties, it features an arsenal of ingredients scientifically proven to encourage the production of restructuring collagen. Key ingredients include: ŸŸ Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline (ASC 111): A collagen enhancer, helps to increase firmness and hydration in mature skin. Also helps soften acne scarring.


INS MODERN SCIENCE ŸŸ D Panthenol: A skin conditioner. ŸŸ Linoleic Acid: Critical in the development and maintenance of a healthy skin barrier. ŸŸ Yeast Polysaccharides: Hydrates and retains water in the skin, helping to delay the ageing process. Developed and produced in the United States, it is formulated with no parabens, no fragrance, and no artificial colour. The powerful Collagen III Serum helps to increase firmness and hydration in mature skin. It stimulates the production of restructuring collagen and firms and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. It is also an excellent treatment for acne scarring, repairing damaged membranes. After a couple of months of using the Collagen III Serum, I have found it helpful in improving hydration, firmness and skin elasticity. It has a light-weight and fast-absorbing texture, which makes it pleasant to use. There is no going wrong with Ayur-Medic – makers of well-formulated and effective products for beautiful skin. ayur-medic.com

GET YOUR SKIN LOOKING ITS BEST Feel like you have tried just about everything to make your skin look younger, smoother and healthier - apart from Red Light Therapy. I am a huge proponent of red light-based skin therapy and have been using it for 10 years now. I can honestly say it is one of the most effective skin treatments I have ever used. It has done amazing things for my skin, keeping fine lines at bay. It is my go-to treatment for improving sagging skin. Gentle and painless with no actual recovery time, red light therapy was originally pioneered by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and has been used by dermatologists for years to target everything from breakouts to collagen breakdown. I’m always on the hunt for the most effective light therapy device for home use and was introduced to iderma Youth Restoring Masque earlier this year. It is an advanced full-face coverage, wearable phototherapy device that uses low-level light therapy (LLLT) to improve overall complexion and reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and enlarged pores. The treatment gives skin that fresh and more youthful look. A home red light LED therapy device, its patented DermaPulse technology and adjustable, hands-free design provides full-face coverage that ensures maximum results and easy operation. I have found that LED is great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone,

reducing pores size, brightening the skin and rejuvenating the youthful look of skin. This is one of the best beauty investments that can ever be made for the skin.

What is red light therapy? An LED (Light-Emitting Diodes) facial is a technology-based skin treatment that uses specific wavelengths of natural light energy to restore skin’s normal, healthy activity. It works by sending light to penetrate deeply into layers of skin to stimulate cell production, heal trauma and speed up the overall regeneration process. Depending on the kind of LED light used, treatment results can include a reduction of inflammation, redness, uneven skin tone and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Other major benefits of this anti-ageing treatment are that it is safe, non-invasive, painless and comes with zero downtime. Finally, it can be easily fit into an existing skincare routine. The link between LED lights and skin healing has been supported by studies, including several from NASA. They have completed extensive research that shows the many benefits of using low-level light therapy (LLLT). Some of the research findings are available on their website. In addition, many clinical studies have been published about the positive effects of LLLT on the skin by physician members of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). Some results from LLLT-related studies conducted by dermatologists can


iderma

be found on the AAD’s website as well as that of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS). Light therapy technology has been used by dermatologists in their clinics for years now. It is used in treatment of skin damage, acne, irritated rosacea-plagued skin, psoriasis, age spots, wrinkles and skin cancer or melanoma.

Pay attention to wavelength Before purchasing an LLLT device, find out at which wavelength it operates. LED light has different wavelengths that are measured in nanometres (nm) and target different skin problems.

Though there is some overlap in benefits, different colours of LED penetrate different depths of the skin to address different skin problems.

Red and infrared light are the two most versatile light spectra used for anti-ageing Red Light: The longest of the visible light spectrum (typically falls between 620nm and 780nm), red light is used for its anti-ageing effects. It has been linked to the production of two key proteins – collagen and elastin, which work together to create stronger, firmer and plumper skin. This light will improve skin elasticity, increase blood and nutrient circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, minimise wrinkle depth and break up hyper-pigmentation.

Infrared Light: Part of the invisible light spectrum, infrared has the longest wavelength (typically falls between 700nm and 1,000nm). It penetrates into muscles and the deeper layers of the dermis to help repair cell damage, speed up the healing process and generally combat sagging and wrinkles. Infrared LED light works exceptionally well when combined with red LED light to increase collagen production. This means that using red and infrared wavelengths together is a powerful combination for combatting antiageing effects on the skin. Of course, there is more to effective LED therapy than shining coloured lights on the skin. Power, duration, distance, focus and certainly consistency all play a part. Frequency and length of use depends on the quality of the light therapy device.

The anti-ageing benefits of red light therapy For wrinkles, red light therapy can help reduce the signs of ageing and deliver a youthful, healthy glow. But red light therapy is not just for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Complexion will be more lifted, toned, and improved, resulting in younger-looking, smoother skin, thanks to increased healthy cellular activity. In addition to helping to hydrate and heal the skin, it is also great for anti-ageing because it protects existing collagen and elastin, while also stimulating new collagen production. It smooths overall skin tone and repairs sun damage, providing a radiant glow. It can be easily operated at home and is safe for all skin types.

Red LED light therapy home versions: from handheld, to table-top and face-mask devices Home use devices have been available to consumers for some time. Unfortunately, many of the products are cumbersome, under-powered, have limited coverage or are simply difficult to use consistently. Many simply stop using them long before results can show. I have used both hand-held and table-top light therapy

devices and have found that both types have shortcomings. I feel that hand-held devices are extremely burdensome and difficult to use. They will almost never reach required dosage levels as they have a limited footprint and are typically underpowered. With table-top units or other standing devices, the distance to the light source typically prohibits accurate dosing because it constantly changes as the user moves around. That is why I believe wearable devices tend to be more effective at delivering dependable light therapy. They deliver constant, uniform doses to the target area during treatment, making each session highly consistent, which naturally leads to better efficiency. I was therefore very excited to test iderma LED mask, which solves many of the problems associated with conventional facial phototherapy treatments – such as lack of sufficient output and inconsistency of treatment.

iderma light mask is seriously fantastic Designed to fit over the face like a hockey mask, the iderma Rejuvenation Mask is impressively outfitted with 128 light-emitting diodes – 14 red and 114 infrared – that emit various forms of safe yet powerful LED light to boost skin rejuvenation. The device uses low-level light therapy by way of clinicalgrade, surface-mounted, light-emitting diodes to expose the skin to clinically proven wavelengths of light – all delivered at safe, therapeutic doses. Combining red and pulsing infrared LEDs at their optimal intensity to maximise power and efficacy, the mask stimulates the skin to produce the much-needed collagen that makes skin elastic and tight. For optimum results, iderma is engineered with both narrow- and wide-angle LEDs. Its red (660nm) and infrared (940nm) lights penetrate the skin at different levels, building collagen, reducing fine lines and diminishing wrinkles with regular use.

What makes iderma so effective and easy to use iderma was designed to provide maximum results with minimal effort, offering a host of unique benefits:

theaddressmagazine.com


Combining the most effective wavelengths for maximum results: Different kinds of light have different benefits. Visible red wavelengths focus on the surface of the skin, while infrared light, although invisible to the human eye, affects the cells on a deeper level. iderma uniquely uses both red and infrared LEDs at specific wavelengths that are shown to stimulate cell growth and collagen production. This helps by making skin appear firmer, more radiant and youthful. The use of Derma-Pulse Technology: This is a patented, proprietary function that allows both the red and infrared light sources to penetrate deeper into the underlying skin, to provide more effective, lasting results. Full-face coverage: With an intelligent design, iderma boasts a patented full-face visor to cover the entire face. Its narrow- and wide-angle lenses are strategically placed around the mask to provide uniform coverage to the entire face for the whole treatment period. No need to wonder if a spot was missed or if there is an area not getting adequately treated. Hands-free, quick and easy to use: Unlike hand-held and table-top devices, iderma is hands-free and is therefore easy and convenient to use. iderma does all of the work – just sit back and relax during each session. Adding to the mask’s ease of use, it comes with a built-in timer that shuts the lights off at the end of the treatment. All it takes is using iderma for eight minutes, three times per week, in the comfort of home. Impressive results: Visible improvements may already be seen within just four weeks, with the skin starting to look more youthful and supple. Results become even more impressive when the product is used consistently over time. After the initial 12-week treatment period, a maintenance program ensures long-lasting results from the iderma System. During the maintenance phase, use iderma once or twice a week to maintain and improve skin tone and condition. A plug-in LLLT device: Battery-operated devices will experience variations in wattage, and their efficacy depends on the size and strength of the battery. Because higher currents lead to better LED performance, the best results come from plug-in LLLT devices. iderma plugs into a stan-

Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019

dard wall outlet for both a consistent power supply and no batteries to worry about replacing or recharging. It is also dual-voltage for worldwide currents and comes with outlet adapters for North America, the UK, EU and most of Asia, with Australian adapters available upon request. Durability: The iderma contains quality LEDs designed to last at least 10,000 hours. Based on that rating and the durability of the components being used, the expected life of the iderma is five years with regular use. It comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. A company with a great track record: Recognised as one of the global leaders in aesthetic light-based therapies, Apira Science – the company behind iderma – is a pioneer in the development, manufacture and distribution of low-level light therapy systems and devices for the consumer market. Founded in 2004, Apira holds worldwide patents on the iderma systems (skin and hair). Other thoughtful details include: Elastic foam cushioning pads for maximum comfort, an adjustable headband, A/C power adapter and protective goggles to improve comfort.

What to expect with consistent use iderma is designed to provide a fresher-looking complexion and improve overall skin appearance by: ŸŸ Reducing fine lines and wrinkles ŸŸ Diminishing crow’s feet ŸŸ Supporting skin elasticity ŸŸ Minimising the look of pores ŸŸ Reduction in redness or inflamed blemishes ŸŸ Improving skin texture and tone ŸŸ Lightening age spots ŸŸ Improving skin’s radiance Also, extensive clinical research has proven that combining red light therapy with the specially formulated peptide preparations can enhance wrinkle reduction and lead to an exceptional improvement in sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, skin texture and tone. By helping

A VISUAL JOURNEY:

The vivid colours of Mexico Mexico is a land of enchantment that seduces all who come to partake in it with its charms, its traditions and its incredibly vivid colours. Yes, colour: a kaleidoscope of vibrancy, of vivacious hues. Be they rich or gaudy, brilliant or garish, the colours of Mexico reflect the exuberance of life here. They pulsate, they are flamboyant, bold and oftentimes whimsical. They are so much a part of life in this country of diverse landscapes, people and traditions. Mexicans celebrate colour. It is integral to their exuberant outlook on life. Look at Mexico’s nature, its architecture, its art, its fiestas: there is an unbelievably rich palette of colours in every one of them. The textiles, the food, the interiors of the houses, the street life and the markets burst with colour of every imagining. Take a closer look at the country’s landscapes: from the pristine white sand beaches that are caressed by the crystal-clear blue waters, to the cactus-strewn deserts, the brightly painted colonial towns, the verdant mountains, the lush jungles and the snow-capped volcanoes, colour plays a part in every facet and every corner of the nation. Here, then, is a tribute to the sights and the scenes that make Mexico special, views from a country where colour reigns, is celebrated and is a way of life. Volume 31 | Autumn/Winter 2018-2019
