CARO EMERALD brings her new UK tour to Plymouth

“There aren’t many chances to watch genuine perfection take to the stage. Don’t miss Emerald”

Metro

Following 5 star reviews and sold out shows across the board, the gorgeous and stylish Caro Emerald is back with a brand new live UK tour for 2018. Since the release of the 2010 multi-platinum debut album ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ Caro Emerald and producers Grandmono have fashioned their own niche, blending retro jazz with sampling and modern pop, starring Caro’s exceptional vocals. The result is a truly unique signature sound. Second album ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ entered the Official UK Album Chart at No. 1 in May 2013, remaining in the chart for an entire year. With more than 2.5 million record sales, a host of awards (including an Echo, Goldene Kamera, Edison Award, EBBA & MTV Music Award), and a string of sold out tours and performances at festivals throughout Europe including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight, Caro has made her mark. The vocalist is an original pop star with the look of a Hollywood icon of yesteryear and a voice that oozes warmth and vitality. Her live performance is not to be missed – as The Daily Telegraph noted “Caro Emerald had everyone in the palm of her hand’’ and her “infectious sense of fun and vintage charm can be relied on to lift the spirits”. This new tour follows her acclaimed Emerald Island tour in 2017. Prior to her 2018 headline tour Caro performed at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in May, wowed audiences at Quincy Jones’ 85th birthday concert at the O2 in June and will appear at the Cornbury Festival in July. Caro Emerald appears at Plymouth Pavilions on Saturday 27 October. You can buy tickets directly from: www.theticketstore.co.uk. See website for prices and ticket options.

“Normally when I come home to Plymouth I spend time catching up with family and friends mostly, as well as trying to get to a game at Home Park, obviously. We’ll always try and go to a local beach, weather permitting too.” Supporting Bastille will be singer-songwriter, Ella Eyre, whose energetic performance is sure to get the crowds dancing.

BAstille what's on

British alternative pop band, Bastille, were formed in 2010 and comprise lead vocalist Dan Smith, keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist and guitarist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood. Their debut album, ‘Bad Blood’ was released in 2012 and was followed up in 2016 by ‘Wild World’ which reached No 1. Having recently released their latest single 'Quarter Past Midnight', the band are about to launch their third album and embark on a summer tour of festivals including MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds. Here, we find out about the process behind the new single and album as well as how one member is looking forward to coming home. Bastille’s last record might have despaired at the state of the world, but their most recent single, ‘Quarter Past Midnight,’ chooses to escape from it instead – at least for the night. The lead single from the band’s forthcoming third album, is an escapist anthem, its breakbeats and drum fills loosely inspired by ‘90s dance music, its euphoric hook unmistakably Bastille. “We keep on running, running through a red light, like we’re trying to burn the night away,” sings frontman Dan Smith in his distinctly British baritone on the song’s vivid, cinematic chorus. Says Smith of the song: “It’s just about trying to capture that Sliding Doors moment on a night out. Some people are gonna go home; for some this is just the beginning. It became about being in someone’s car, driving through the city, and I wanted to try and capture that sense of excitement, and that rush.” Recorded and self-produced in the band’s newly built studio – “an old porn studio that we turned into a place that could be ours” – which also houses Smith’s record label Best Laid Plans (Rag N’Bone Man, Rationale), the song’s nocturnal setting evokes the infinite possibilities that darkness brings. “It’s way easier to escape in the night time,” says Smith. “Places that aren’t normally open are open to the world, and the places that you associate with reality and work are all shut down. There’s a parallel universe that exists, and this other set of people who are out and about.” The five months Bastille spent in London recording new music was the longest they’ve stayed in one place since they released their triple platinum debut album, ‘Bad Blood’, five years ago. The past half-decade has certainly been a whirlwind for the four-piece, who comprise frontman Smith (who is the sole songwriter, and co-produces all the tracks alongside Mark Crew), keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist and guitarist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood. They’ve played over 500 shows across six continents, including their recent, critically acclaimed ReOrchestrated tour, and have amassed 15 million single sales and 6 million album sales globally. Both Bad Blood and its follow-up, ‘Wild World’, reached No.1 in the UK and the top 10 in the US, and their music has been streamed a staggering 3.3 billion times. They’ve not gone without awards recognition either: after winning British Breakthrough Act at the BRITs, they’ve earned Grammy, AMA and MTV Europe Awards nominations. With all their unexpected success, it was only in stopping to take a breath that Smith was able to reflect on Bastille’s journey, and in doing so, he’s made music that is more rooted in time and place than anything they’ve made before. “Our first album was pieced together over a period of time, and then we never stopped to make our second record, we just carried on going,” Smith recalls. “So it was really unusual and awesome to stop, properly focus on one thing and live a life in London for a while.” The release of the new album is still to be confirmed at time of going to press, but Bastille will be showcsasing their new music on a summer tour: 26th July 28th July 4th August 9th August 18th August

For one member of the band, Chris 'Woody' Wood, the opprtunity to come to Plymouth and perform is one that he is really looking forward to; "I've wanted to play on The Hoe for years and I was so jealous watching other acts play there year after year. I can't believe we finally get to perform there”. MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds takes place on 26th and 27th July at Plymouth Hoe. For more details, visit the website: www.oceancitysounds.co.uk

‘Something wicked this way comes’…

Macbeth open air at Royal William Yard 31 July – 11 Aug

Macbeth will be the fourth production in Barbican Theatre’s popular annual ’Bard in the Yard’ programme, running outdoors at the extraordinary Royal William Yard site, adjacent to Plymouth’s historic waterfront. This follows their three hugely successful previous summer productions A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2015), Romeo & Juliet (2016) and Twelfth Night (2017). The production is part of Barbican Theatre’s commitment to creating high quality, accessible work while supporting and developing local talent. More than 180 professional and emerging actors applied for roles in Macbeth, which is the highest number of applications they’ve ever had. Barbican Theatre are excited to announce the actors playing the lead roles as Hassan Maarfi (Macbeth) who is currently touring Europe with the prestigious Vienna’s English Theatre and Seren Vickers (Lady Macbeth) who is currently performing in Katell Keinig’s Highway One at Wales Millennium Centre. Joining Hassan and Seren are six emerging and dynamic actors; Abigail Cowan, Alexander Dover, Ruan Evans, John Inkerman, Danny Laine and John James McColl. As an ensemble they will play a number of parts including Banqo, King Duncan, McDuff, and of course The Witches! Their Plymouth based Director, Jo Loyn, began her career as an actor 40 years ago with Plymouth Theatre Company (before the Theatre Royal was built!) and was a founding member

of Drumbeat. Jo has directed a number of stage productions including Cornonation Street baddie Connor McIntyre (Phelan) in Berkoff’s ‘Harry’s Christmas’! Recently Jo directed Barbican Theatre’s regional tour of Jon Nash’s Why Would You? and the highly regarded one woman play about autism ‘The Duck’ which appeared at The Plymouth Fringe before embarking on a regional tour. Dan Baker, Producer of Macbeth says “Jo is a fantastic director and her passion for, and knowledge of, Shakespeare shines through in her plans for this production. I have no doubt her modern, energised interpretation of this intense, dramatic tale will leave audiences gripped and longing for more. If you think you don’t you like Shakespeare we urge you to give our version a go - this production of Macbeth will offer a unique theatrical experience in a beautiful outdoors setting!” Macbeth is a good man, a courageous war hero, respected and loyal. He recognises an opportunity for advancement, he is talented, ambitious....and his wife even more so. But what lengths will he go to secure his power and what will he do with this power? Set in a war torn country Macbeth is a powerful metaphor for our times. This is a breathtaking and bloody story of ambition, treachery, power and guilt.

“If you think you don’t like Shakespeare we urge you to give our version a go - this production of Macbeth will offer a unique theatrical experience in a beautiful outdoors setting!” 22 woinplymouth

We’re excited to be partnering with Column Bakhouse to offer Macbeth audiences freshly produced and locally sourced picnic boxes (including, of course, some of their delicious locally baked breads!) which they can enjoy in the garden before the performances begin.

Jamie Cooks Italy by Jamie Oliver

The Duke of Cornwall hotel:

victorian grandeur meets modern comfort The magnificent Victorian architecture of the Duke of Cornwall Hotel makes it one of Plymouth’s most treasured buildings. Built as the citys first luxury hotel in 1863, the Duke has been lovingly preserved and enhanced so that it can be enjoyed by guests coming to stay, dine or celebrate. The hotel’s 72 rooms are all individually designed with thoughtfully-selected designer wallpapers and vintage furniture, creating a chic look that does justice to the building’s striking architecture. With a range of bedroom sizes and styles available, from comfortable en-suites to indulgently romantic four-poster rooms, there’s accommodation to suit everyone.

Added Luxury

Ornate carved wooden four-poster beds are the striking centrepiece of our magnificent luxury rooms. Selected bedrooms from this range also offer the added comfort of a separate lounge area. The generous space and exquisite style and luxury of these rooms make them ideal as bridal suites. For an additional fee, we can lay on flowers, champagne and chocolates – an extra extravagance for a wedding night or simply as a special treat. In our Reynolds Suite, you can even enjoy exclusive use of the Duke’s iconic tower, with its 360-degree views over the sea and the rolling countryside of Devon and Cornwall.

Gastronomic excellence

The Duke’s luxury extends to its impressive culinary offerings with its restaurant having been recognised, recently, with a second AA Rosette for its fine dining restaurant. With a growing reputation in the south-west, main courses include dishes such as stone bass with local mussels, smoked bacon, sweetcorn chowder and Maris Piper mash. Among the

34 woinplymouth

starters available, diners can find chicken liver parfait, rhubarb and date chutney and toasted brioche. Desserts are a similarly tantalising prospect, one example being a dish of apricots and almond sponge, featuring apricot gel, almond praline and stem ginger ice cream.

Publisher: Michael Joseph RRP: £ 12.99 (hardcover) Jamie Cooks Italy is a celebration of the joy of Italian food. Jamie wants to share his love of all things Italian with accessible, best-ever recipes for Classic Carbonara, Salina Chicken, Stuffed Focaccia, Baked Risotto Pie, Pot-Roasted Cauliflower and Limoncello Tiramisu. This is about bringing the pleasure and passion of the world's favourite cuisine to your kitchen at home. Featuring 140 recipes in Jamie's easy-to-follow style, the book has chapters on Antipasti, Salad, Soup, Meat, Pasta, Fish, Rice & Dumplings, Bread & Pastry, Sides, Desserts and all the Basics you need.

If you prefer something less formal, The Lounge is a welcoming space to enjoy a light meal or a drink with friends. Choose from our delicious range of lunch items and your favourite tipple from our well-stocked bar.

Tea at the top

For a truly unique Plymouth experience, enjoy our afternoon tea for two with a difference.

Vive la France et sa cuisine

France is understandably proud of its culinary heritage. From the opulent banquets of the Middle Ages, the influence of Italian cuisine during the 15th and 16th centuries, through to the rise of Haute Cuisine and the role food played in the French Revolution; France has been recognised, across the world, as a capital of gastronomic excellence. We take a look through the ages at the influences behind the cuisine as well as some of the leading lights that have not only shaped a cuisine, but more importantly, shaped a country.

Middle Ages

Banquets were commonplace among the aristocracy in the Middle Ages, with multiple courses of meats, pies, greens, hams and sauces served 'service en confusion', literally 'all at once'. Food was generally eaten with the hands and often ended with an issue de table, which later evolved into the modern dessert, and typically consisted of spiced lumps of hardened sugar or honey, aged cheese and spiced wine, such as hypocras. Increasingly more rare and intricate foods were created for these regal occasions, but as the dishes became more intricate and complicated masterpieces they didn’t always taste very good. For example, whale, dolphin and porpoise were considered fish dishes during these times. The most well known French chef of the Middle Ages was Guillaume Tirel, also known as Taillevent. Taillevent worked in numerous royal kitchens during the 14th century, cooking for Philip VI, and King Charles V of France. Taillevent wrote a famous book on cookery titled 'Le Viandier' that was influential on subsequent books about French cuisine and important to food historians as a detailed source on the medieval cuisine of northern France. His career spanned sixty-six years, and upon his death his tombstone represents him in armor, holding a shield with three cooking pots. For those lower down the social ladder, ingredients were far more rustic. Bread would typically be the staple ingredient used, albeit the quality of grain meant the bread was often inedible and cost a large percentage of the meager budget. The peasant farmers would often eat meats but chicken was only eaten on special ocassions. As these meats would be costly and hard to come by, they would have to be preserved in salt to keep them fresh. As the peasants diet became totally dependant on what could be grown or purchased and kept, it lacked some of the essential vitamins required for a healthy diet and caused many diseases such as scurvey. By the 15th and 16th centuries new influences were making their way into the kitchens of France. Much of this occurred due to the marriage of Catherine de' Medici (a Florentine princess) and Henry duc d'Orleans (who later became King Henry II). Italian cooks were light years ahead of French culinary specialists and not only created dishes such as manicotti, and lasagna, but used ingredients like garlic, truffles, and mushrooms to add flavour and texture.

Ancien Regime

The period between the 16th and 18th centuries was called the Ancien Regime. During this time Paris was considered the hub of culture and activity, including culinary activity. In the Ancien Regime distribution of food was managed by the city government as societies, and these Guilds set up confinements that permitted certain food businesses to work in assigned regions. Guilds were isolated into two groups: individuals who provided the raw materials to make food, and the general population who sold already prepared food. The restriction set up by societies hampered the advancement of culinary arts during this time, by limiting certain gourmet experts to allotted territories.

Haute Cuisine (High cooking)

Haute cuisine became a movement in 17th century France. Born out of political and social changes in the country, the "high" cuisine represented a hierarchy, as only the privileged could eat it. Haute cuisine distinguished itself from regular French cuisine by making the style of cooking difficult, by using exotic or expensive ingredients, such as caviar or tongue. Cooking was also time consuming and would only be taken on by those who were both talented chefs and who could take all day preparing and executing these types of dish. It was not until the end of the 17th century that a French chef and writer La Varenne broke with tradtion and revolutionized the more simplistic dishes of the Middle Ages in his book 'Le Cuisinier françois' (1651). It is considered one of the most influential cookbooks in early modern French cuisine and concentrated on modest and less extravagant meals. This new approach to cooking became popular with more culinary specialists who toned down on the plenitude of a meal, and concentrated on fresh ingredients, a new approach to cooking meats, so that flavour was not lost. He also introduced vegetables like cauliflower, asparagus, peas, cucumber and artichoke whilst using locally grown herbs such as parsley, thyme, bayleaf, chervil, sage, tarragon.

Vive La Revolution

Until the day the Bastille was stormed in 1789, 70 percent of French citizens were peasants and poor farmers whose diets were based mainly on grains. Bread was the primary component of their diet and when the grain crops failed in 1788 and 1789, bread became so expensive that only

Michel Roux Snr the aristocrats could afford it and, if it appeared on one's table, it was a mark of social standing. Both the physical hunger of the population, and the hunger for liberté, egalité, fraternité (liberty, equality, fraternity), were catalysts in the French Revolution. After the uprising, many cooks and servants, whose aristocrat employers had fled Paris or were executed, opened restaurants and made finer foods available to the public.

20th Century French Cuisine

Major improvements to transportation meant regional cuisines and ingredients, that were previously segregated, could now be made readily available to a new audience. Also, veterans of two World Wars, who had tasted the delights of European cuisines whilst abroad fighting for the Allies created a flurry of tourism that put French cuisine firmly on the map.

Both the physical hunger of the population, and the hunger for liberté, egalité, fraternité (liberty, equality, fraternity), were catalysts in the French Revolution. After the wars, a need for grand cuisine at a fair price created a new movement 'Nouvelle Cuisine', championed by the likes of chef Paul Bocuse and others, who emphasized freshness, lightness, and clarity of flavour. Gone were the unnecessary and complicated steps that cooked the food to within an inch of its life to preserve natural flavours. Instead, ingredients were steamed with an emphasis on freshness. Thick sauces were replaced by simple herbs, butter and lemon dressings, similar to the peasant dishes of the past. By the 1980s, nouvelle cuisine had already seen its day as chefs began returning to the haute cuisine style of cooking, although much of the lighter presentations and new techniques remained. Born out of these hybrid styles of cooking a new breed of French pioneering chefs were created. The likes of Alain Ducasse, Joël Robuchon and Michel Roux Snr have all continued to develop the cuisine with innovative and ground-breaking techniques that have made it even more accessible to a wider audience and reveared by foodies across the world. In November 2010, French gastronomy was added by the UNESCO to its lists of the world's "intangible cultural heritage".

Everything's turned out Rosé

Wine is evocative, wistful and downright magical! I said that! In my many years of observing, tasting, purchasing and recommending wine I have witnessed varying modes of obsession, love and yearning for this formulaic beverage that seems to have been with us since – it could be over 5000 years – and has had many rolls from industrial beverage to heavenly tasting liquid. Fortunes have been made and lost in perusing the “taste game” of the Holy Grail for the “perfect wine”. I myself had that special moment when as a young restaurateur I visited the vineyards and wineries of Beaujolais in Eastern France. To start the understanding process of fermentation you have to be “in the soup” it seems and I was as I viewed the harvest, crushing and fermentation process at first hand. The same wine came to my fledgling Bistro (in St Ives) around 12 months later. I stared to understand and comment on wine almost automatically and guess what – people listened. I had gotten the bug! More visits and more wine came my way just like the business man Stephen Cronk who yearned for a vineyard and family home in Provence. Stephen had also been seduced by wine on a visit to the amazing Barossa Valley in South Australia but it was to be Provence that would be the new home for him and his family as in 2009 they upped sticks from Teddington and headed to Cotignac.

Hard years followed but persistence and a serious aim of making top quality Provence Rosé lead them to purchasing distinctive grapes and making wine. Local expertise was engage as they tasted, elaborated, and learned to sell their new “golden (pink) egg” to a market that was about to be chock-bang-full of Rosé wine.

Using Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah from North-facing vineyards enables a longer growing season in this hot grape growing district. Harvesting at night preserves the acidity and freshness of the cool fruit before brief macerating and pressing before immersing into fermentation tanks. This is done with speed and temperature contorl to ensure the primary fruit flavours are captured. Mirabeau Classic 2017 £10.99 is a rage of delicate red fruit flavours captured (like all samples) in a robe of slinky pinkness. Mirabeau Pure 2017 £13.95 shows a striking mineral note that shouts very loud to be taken seriously to partner modern (Provence) dishes with a broad spectrum. Mirabeau Etoile 2016 £15.00 is presented in a stand out bottle with award winning flavours that show light but complex fruit flavours and an off-dry note. Delicious indeed. Mirabeau La Folie NV £13.99 is created with Syrah and Grenache grapes from Luberon. It was decided to make this wine in the “Tank or Charmat” method not unlike Presecco. The resultant wine is a “Tour de force” A fabulously striking Sparkling wine offering a red fruit and citrus vibe of Summer freshness. Restaurants, Wine Bars and Hotels have not been forgotten with Mirabeau Azure 2017 smartly presented and equally delicious. Prices vary slightly but to find go to Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and www.mirabeau.com they are your best bets for info and purchase notes. What a range! I really loved them all and hope you do too.

After many months and years their Mirabeau Rosé had created a following especially by the Supermarket Waitrose who purchased a sizeable parcel. Fast forward a number of years you will find Mirabeau now selling in 40 countries. The family had come through with flying colours with hard work (school and commerce), new business premises and now aiming to purchase their own vineyard and winery to cement their Provence dream. Guess what? I have a range of wines to taste and with Summer fast coming this might be your go – to Rosé wine.

Pea and Broad Bean Salad

Serves 4 Ingredients:

For the dressing 2 large tomatoes 1 shallot, finely diced Red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 150ml extra virgin olive oil 1 garlic clove, crushed 2 tbsp white wine vinegar Pinch of caster sugar 100ml tomato juice For the smashed minted peas 475g frozen peas 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Small bunch of mint, leaves picked and finely chopped To serve Large handful of frozen peas and broad beans 1 x bag frisee salad and 1 x bag pea shoots Handful crispy fried onions and fried, salted broad beans (habas fritas) 2 piquillo peppers from a jar, finely sliced Pomegranate molasses

Method:

1. To make the dressing, fill a saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Prepare a bowl of ice water – it needs to be big enough to hold the tomatoes. Score a cross on the top of each tomato with a sharp knife and plunge into the boiling water for 10 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and refresh in the bowl of cold water. Once cool, skin the tomatoes, starting at the top where you scored the cross. 2. Quarter the tomatoes and deseed them. Discard the seeds and juice. Stack the quarters on top of each other and dice finely, taking care not to crush the tomatoes as you chop them. Mix with the remaining dressing ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside. 3. To make the smashed peas, boil a full kettle. Place the peas in a large sieve or colander and pour the boiling water over them to defrost. Put roughly a third of the peas in a bowl and set aside. Place the remaining two thirds in a larger bowl with the olive oil, mint and salt and pepper. Crush the peas using a fork or potato masher so that they still retain some of their texture. Stir in the whole peas. 4. Boil another kettle of water and defrost the peas and broad beans for the garnish in the same way.

King Prawns with Chermoula Dressing Serves 4

Ingredients:

For the prawns 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 2 tbsp Belazu chermoula dressing 12-16 raw king prawns, peeled with heads attached 1 tbsp olive oil 2 lemons, halved 250g black venus rice, cooked according to packet instructions Large handful frozen peas, cooked Large handful frozen broad beans, cooked 100g French beans, trimmed and cooked

Method:

1. Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat. To make the marinade, mix the olive oil and chermoula together with a pinch of salt and thoroughly coat the prawns with the mixture. Place on a roasting tray and grill for around 5 minutes until the prawns are pink and cooked, turning half way through. 2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the lemon halves, cut-side down and fry for 30 secs-1 min, or until lightly caramelized. 3. Divide the rice amongst four plates and scatter over the vegetables. Top with the prawns and drizzle over the leftover cooking juices. Place half a lemon on each plate and serve immediately.

5. To serve the salad, place a spoonful of pea and mint puree in the middle of each plate and flatten with the back of your spoon. Top with a some of the whole peas and broad beans, scatter the frisee and pea shoots and spoon over the tomato dressing. Decorate with the crispy fried onions, fried broad beans and pepper slices. Finish with a drizzle of molasses.

Everybody loves

Raymond

Raymond Blanc is one of the most respected chefs in Britain today. Entirely self-taught, he is the owner of the two Michelin starred, Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons as well as the high street chain, 'Brasserie Blanc'. Craig Maplesden caught up with Raymond to talk about his ethos, the resurgence of British food and how French cuisine is still the template for gastronomic excellence. Image credit: Mat Quake


As part of our summer issue, we are focusing on French Cuisine. Can you tell us a little about Besançon, where you grew up in eastern France? What dishes you grew up with and what were the typical ingredients used? My cooking is very much inspired by my Maman, at home and in my restaurants - she is my hero and where my inspiration for my cooking came from. We were working class, but we ate like kings. She taught me all about not wasting food, the importance of seasonality and generosity so I make it simple, delicious and seasonal. We used to eat everything from the countryside when I was growing up – wild mushrooms, rabbit, duck – as a boy I would collect fresh produce from the garden and forage further afield with a map of my father’s then watch Maman go to work creating family meals, full of flavour and so full of love. I also love making snails bourguignon and Mediterranean fish soup. I grew up eating these delicacies in France. The smells and textures of each dish evoke strong childhood memories. For dessert, it has to be Maman’s simple and delicious apple tart.

When I came to Great Britain in 1972 England was a very different place, food was of total irrelevance. Now there’s a true awakening of what represents good food. The consumer is much more knowledgeable and aware. They ask more questions: what’s in the food, where does it come from? Great Britain has moved on in the culinary world so much and it’s exciting. British chefs are now mature and have a true connection with gastronomy. They connect with their region, their heritage, their history - which is exactly our aim for Brasserie Blanc. The summer is an amazing season for ingredients. Are there any recent discoveries that you are now incorporating within your dishes? The menu changes at Brasserie Blanc are always led by seasonality and the freshest ingredients around. Just take our new Vietnamese summer rolls that have subtle fresh flavours of mint, avocado, cucumber and a citrus ginger and soy dipping sauce for the summer months. They are also vegan which is a lifestyle choice that I see more and more of our guests adopting.

As a boy I would collect fresh produce from the garden and forage further afield with a map of my father’s then watch Maman go to work creating family meals, full of flavour and so full of love. What are your early memories of food and how has this shaped your ethos and cooking style? It has to be watching Maman beavering away in the kitchen. She taught me to follow the rhythm of the seasons and make the most of the delicious produce available to me and also to enrich someone else’s life by passing on your own knowledge to the young. French cuisine has always been the forerunner in food innovation, what new trends or innovations are you seeing now? Adventurous eating! We are noticing so many more people opt for the likes of Steak Tartare at Brasserie Blanc – people are really pushing the boundaries when it comes to trying different and new dishes, particularly the younger audience. The new summer menu also includes dishes such as grilled cod with lemon and squid ink risotto, to give customers something new and unique to try. How would you best sum up French cuisine? It’s all about richness, combination of ingredients and flavours, but most of all I think it is the whole experience of sitting down at the table with family and a big hearty bowl of beef bourguignon. It’s very comforting. I think the British have very much embraced French food to the point that it is part of everyday life for many people. How often do you enjoy croissants or pain au chocolat at breakfast or a freshly baked baguette at lunch? The British have embraced so many different styles of cuisine from across the world and, in a lot of ways, taken it to a new level. It makes the future of food in this country very exciting to me and it is wonderful to be part of that.

Are there any funny/interesting stories you can tell us about your travels? For the new summer menu, I have taken inspiration from my world travels to create flavoursome dishes from around the world. For the Lamb Tagine, I took inspiration from my time in Morocco. However, I did find myself in some trouble when I was bartering over some king prawns in a market - what I thought was some friendly banter suddenly escalated and the market trader threatened violence if I continued to try and get a better price. I thought I was doing well with my bartering, but it turns out I had taken things a step too far! You have travelled extensively experiencing different cuisines from around the world. Do you prefer travelling or do you still prefer being in the kitchen? My experiences travelling have really helped to craft the new summer menu at Brasserie Blanc. From the lamb tagine in Morocco to the summer rolls in South-East Asia, I have been lucky enough to discover amazing tastes from around the world, which I have brought back, re-created and introduced on the new menu. The grilled cod with lemon and squid ink risotto was inspired by my recent trip to Venice where I visited the Rialto Fish Market most mornings to soak up the atmosphere and see what’s come in fresh off the boats. The inspiration for the preserved lemon cod is a combination of these visits to Venice and also my love of North African food where preserved lemon is a widely used ingredient. Of course, it is always great to come back to the kitchen to see these dishes enjoyed by our customers.

When you first came to England over 40 years ago, how was the standard of cooking and what changes have you noticed in the way we eat or celebrate food?

Join our expert tour guides every morning for an East Wing tour around the house, or Saltram’s very own gardeners on Wednesdays at 2pm for a free garden tour and top tips. This year we celebrate 250 years of the Royal Academy of Arts which was partly founded by Joshua Reynolds and Angelica Kauffman, whose artwork is part of the Parkers’ fabulous collection at Saltram. Did you know Joshua Reynolds lived just down the road from Saltram and had a relationship with the Parker family which is believed to have inspired some of their extensive collection and appreciation of the arts? Part of the collection includes artwork by Angelica Kauffman who was one of only 2 women to be a founding member of the Royal Academy. Find out more about her struggles as a woman in a man’s world. Why not also enjoy tea the old fashioned way in the Chapel tea room after a refreshing bike ride in the park?

We are jumping for joy this summer here at Mount Edgcumbe with all the wonderful things happening at the park. You’re going to be spoilt for choice - whether you’re exploring the park, visiting the Barrow Centre shops and galleries or treating yourself to something delicious from the Stables Café, Orangery Garden Café or Aunty Ems Gatehouse.

The children will have a wonderful time with the bouncy castle, circus workshops and traditional games and don’t forget to bring Fido along too – there will be a fun charity dog show to enjoy as well.

There are lots of events taking place for you to enjoy starting with The Great British Summer Festival. Miss Ivy Events in association with Mount Edgcumbe are holding the Great British Summer Garden Fete at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park on Sunday 22nd July from 10.30 am – 4pm.

Delicious food and drink will be served throughout the day – and it wouldn’t be a summer garden fete without that most British of summer drinks – Pimms, which will be available at the hugely popular Pimms Bar.

There will be lots to see and do – an extensive array of crafts will be on display at the many artisan stalls, providing tempting opportunities to purchase unique and unusual gifts – you can even try your hand at getting creative yourself at one of the workshops taking place during the day. There will be entertainment with performances by students from the Plymouth-based Hartley House Dance Club and great live music from stunning jazz artist Becky Brine and singer and guitarist Harry Quick.

Whether you’re feeling creative or want an outdoor adventure then we have something for you to do. The Great British Summer Garden Fete will be staged at the bottom of the park near the Orangery, right by the sea and overlooking Plymouth Sound just a stone's throw away from Plymouth, with excellent links via Plymouth boats from the Barbican and Royal William Yard and by road. Entry to the fete costs just £3, under 16s free. In August the park will be alive to the sound of laughter and lots of engines! The Classic Car Rally is back in town. Sunday 5th August will see the 24th Annual Summer Fayre and Vintage, Classic and American Car Event, organised by the Friends of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park (www.friendsof-mount-edgcumbe.org.uk ) and Cornwall Hospice Care back bigger and better than ever. As always there will be a huge range of vehicles to feast the eyes on as well as the Fayre stalls and a Car Boot sale. There will also be bouncy castles and rides for the children to enjoy.

Entrance to the event is free and all day car parking is £10 per vehicle.

With over 30 military vehicles from the 2nd World War, Vietnam up to the modern day, there’s something to satisfy everyones taste. We will have timed displays of firing howitzers, M16 A1 assault rifles and AK47 assault rifles.

Despite government changes in 2017, Romans’ landlords in Bath have experienced increased Dan Robinson rents and growth in profits.

“We know that one in four of all new buyers that register are looking to purchase for buy-to-let, yet only 1 in 8 properties sold by Romans in 2017 were sold to an investor - demonstrating a clear appetite but also uncertainty from some landlords over tax implications with the increased Stamp Duty levy on second homes and the continued phasing of the removal of mortgage interest tax relief.

property HMO’S – What you need to know before you buy one! Philippa Salguero ARLA Lettings Manager Hindhead Property

Selling a problem property by auction Selling property in the current climate can be frustrating and many sellers feel like they have no option to but to wait weeks or months until a buyer comes along and then may still have to wait several months for the sale to exchange. However, selling at auction can help solve your problem.….

Power of attorney

When selling property for a relative to pay for their care using power of attorney, many find that auctions are the best method thanks to the fast completion times and certainty of sale.

their property via auction to other investors looking to gain a new property and stream of income.

Settling an estate

If you are an Executor selling the property as part of a probate sale, you may find selling through auction easier than selling via traditional sale. Not only does selling via auction help you demonstrate that the best price has been achieved in a transparent environment, you also have the added benefit of a speedy sales process.

Typically banks and lenders won’t provide a mortgage against a house that is not is a habitable condition and so many of these properties end up in an auction room. Requires renovation or modernisation

If the property you are selling is dated or requires some renovation work, you may find you have more success selling via auction. Typically banks and lenders won’t provide a mortgage against a house that is not is a habitable condition and so many of these properties end up in an auction room. At auction, properties requiring renovation prove popular with investors who are willing to do-up property in order to resell or let for a profit.

Let investment

Whilst not always a problem, if you have existing tenants living in the property, it can make your property harder to sell due to a more limited market and so many landlords choose to sell

90 woinplymouth

Need for speed

Unlike traditional sale, auction sales complete just 20 business days after the auction. On the day of the auction you have the certainty that contracts are legally exchanged at the fall of the auctioneer’s gavel. Compared with traditional sale, there is a great deal more security that the sale will not fall through.

Structural problems

If your property has any structural problems such as subsidence, uneven floors, bulging walls and cracks, which have worsened over time you may struggle to sell. However, many savvy investors recognise that structural problems are often minor and once the repair bill has been paid, there a plenty of returns to be made by either renting or selling the property.

Licence requirements are changing. Any property with 5 or more tenants consisting of 2 or more families will need an HMO licence from October. Is the HMO inside the Article 4 area? If so does it have a licence already? If not, you would have to apply for planning permission for change of use in order to use this as an HMO. If it previously had an HMO licence but has been most recently been used as a family dwelling, you would have to re-apply for planning permission for change of use which most likely will not be granted. When valuing an HMO, the market value is calculated on the annual income rather than the value of the actual property. This is not an issue if the income is correct and can still be achieved in the current market, however, if the property has been filled to sell to achieve the best price but will need a licence in October and is inside the Article 4 area, you could end up paying above the value of the property and will not longer be able to use it as an HMO. Plymouth is seeing less students and more purpose-built student accommodation, meaning lots of empty HMO’s being marketed as residential accommodation, causing the price of the rooms to go down and only high-quality rooms are successfully being let. Many HMO’s are coming to the market to try to achieve the highest price before the changes come into play. The new application form for the HMO licence is available from 1st July 2018. For Hindhead’s fully managed HMO’s we will happily complete the applications and are always here to advise along the way. Call Hindhead to discuss your options on 01752 875075.

Benefits of buying a new build property

Deciding whether to buy a new or old property is a question faced by most house hunters. Although the idea of a home that has character or period charm may well appeal, there are some major benefits from investing your money into a new build. Here are just a few for you to consider.

see why so many people feel that buying a new home, particularly with all the help that builders can provide, was their best move ever. Most house builders price their homes to sell swiftly, particularly in these competitive times. So keen prices, generous incentives and help with moving costs provide unbeatable value for money.

Choice of appliances, fixtures and fittings

Low Maintenance and safety

As well as being fresh, bright and clean, a new home is untouched by previous owners. Many developers will offer you the opportunity to chose your own appliances, fixtures and fittings creating a blank canvass on which to stamp your own style and personality. Many home builders will also offer a bespoke service to choose decorations, fixtures and fittings or extra items at an additional cost. This can include flooring, interior design or even garden landscape service.

The latest in buildings regulations

The quality of house building construction has grown significantly in recent years with almost 90% of home buyers declaring themselves satisfied with their new homes in the most recent industry survey. Many house builders also provide a comprehensive customer-care service and added peace of mind is provided by the 10 year warranty issued by organisations such as the National House-Building Council.

New homes are built to a much higher spec than the majority of older homes so you get more for your money. They have central heating, doubleglazing and high standards of roof, floor and wall insulation all included in the price. Standard features also usually include fitted kitchens with integrated appliances and stylish bathrooms and cloakrooms, many en-suite. New homes are also safer and more secure than older homes. Fire Safety is helped by the use of smoke alarms, fire doors and fire retardent materials. New homes will also be fitted with safety locks, burglar alarms and security lights as standard.

Environmentally Friendly

Today’s new homes are built to the latest environmental standards, so they are not only better for the planet but cheaper to run. They are much more energy efficient and generate 60% less carbon dioxide emissions than older homes. This can reduce utility bills by more than £500 a year.

The name 504K is inspired by the renowned aviator Sir Alan Cobham who famously flew the first mail delivery flight from a local airfield in 1923. The 504K aeroplane was a legendary training aircraft used by Cobham within the Royal Flying Corps, valued for its flexibility and progressive engineering. Like the homes within this new development, the name reflects the adaptable and practical nature of the properties available at 504K. Located off Plymbridge Lane, a short commute to Plymouth city centre, 504K offers an eclectic mix of attractive 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes for sale.

These houses marry together a unique combination of finishes with a variety of renders, slate and timber cladding being utilised across the development, therefore offering a wide range of property styles and sizes to our customers. All homes have the provision of parking and benefit from contemporary fitted kitchens and bathrooms. These modern homes provide low maintenance, energy efficient living (some homes are fitted with solar panels), PVC-u double glazed windows and a 10 year NHBC Buildmark Warranty. All customers can request a 6 month bus pass and local travel information as part of the 504K Travel Plan that is provided upon completion. Depending on the stage of construction, early purchasers have the option to choose their kitchen units, worktops and bathroom wall tiles. Selected properties are also built to ‘Lifetime Homes’ standard, which means they are thoughtfully designed to make life as easy as possible for as long as possible due to the accessible and practical accommodation they provide.

Many house builders also provide a comprehensive customer-care service and added peace of mind is provided by the 10 year warranty issued by organisations such as the National House-Building Council.

504K is conveniently placed within close proximity to Plymouth City Centre and has easy access to local bus links including easy walking distance to the Park & Ride scheme. There are a large range of shops, supermarkets or stores nearby, not forgetting Derriford Hospital.
