I love a barbie - well I would, wouldn't I? Yet I haven't learnt to enjoy the danger factor of barbecuing in the UK just yet. Don't get me wrong - it only takes the suggestion of sunshine and the temperature to go up by a couple of degrees for me to want to invite everyone for an elaborate spread in the garden - but I'd rather cook it indoors, cancelling out the risk of finding myself chained to the barbecue should the skies suddenly open.
The WHO shared new statistics about the average baskets in the United Kingdom . The results show a significant change in the consumer's habits, more specifically in the alcoholic beverage consumption: it still tends to decrease.
In the UK, alcohol consumption declined for several years in-a-row. The lowest percentage was recorded in 2011. It appears that average consumers prefer to choose white rum over other drinks like champagne , which sales reduced dramatically.
Tweet My friend's mum had several initials both before and after her name. She was very studious and serious, and never seemed to shave her legs (not sure if this was a statement or an oversight). Yet how did she spend her Saturday afternoons? Like many in the UK, watching Mick McManus beat 50 Shades [...]
What created the recent interest the alcohol industry showed toward the gay community? A new social fight for the industry ? Let's be honest, the reason of this renewal of consideration is more likely to be laying on the results of a new study that revealed this breaking news: the gay population invests between 6000 and 8000 billion Euros a year in beverages in the UK. In those conditions, satisfying the tastes of this huge market might not be a bad idea. Question is, is there's …
In your much-appreciated response to our recent survey , many of you said you'd like more coverage of less expensive wines. So here is a collection of tasting notes on more than 200 wines currently retailing in the UK for under £10 a bottle, including some really rather delicious ones. The notes.
Australian wine sales to Britain have broken through the £1 billion barrier, extending the country's lead on second-ranked Italy as Britain's favourite imported wine, according to latest figures from market analysis firm Nielsen. And there was strong growth for more expensive wines, even as Britain splutters along in a protracted economic downturn, with sales of wines priced above £7 ($ A11) rising 16 per cent in volume terms.
…appalling tax dodge. The company, such as it is, is not registered in the United States, so the IRS can't tax it even though it has no employees, no physical presence in Ireland, and has held 32 of its last 33 board meetings in Cupertino, Calif. Viewed from Ireland, it also looks like an appalling dodge. It's exempt from Irish taxation, too, on the grounds that it's not managed in Ireland.

Cooking horse meat for the first time was an interesting affair. It went down well, but was quite sweet. Probably had a bit too much Shergar. No. No! The puns have to stop. Post horse-meat scandal, Britain has made a swift transition from shock, to humour. Now it's time for begrudging acceptance. People eat horse now. Or rather, horses. So you may as well learn how to cook with it, too.
