Delicious Valentine’s Gifts without a chocolate in sight

With very little likelihood of dining out this Valentine’s Day, edible gifts are a great way to bring something a little special to celebrating at home.

London Smoke & Cure offers handcrafted, artisan treats that are a delicious alternative to chocolates and champagne. From award winning Sashimi-grade smoked salmon (which pairs perfectly with champagne) and 28-day dry aged bacon, to vouchers and Smoke School workshops, London Smoke & Cure has a range of gifts that are perfect for lovers of smoked and cured foods.

In last year’s Great Taste Awards, the London Smoke & Cure’s Sashimi-grade Smoked Scottish Salmon secured two stars and its 28-day Dry-aged Smoked Streaky Bacon secured one star.

The South London-based company already has a loyal following amongst specialist
retailers and locals, demonstrated by a sell-out Christmas. Thankfully, the team is now back in action in order to have the wonderful salmon, bacon and charcuterie perfected in time for February 14th.

Its range is available to purchase online with free collection or nationwide delivery and includes:

Great Taste Award-winning Sashimi-grade smoked salmon – superior Scottish salmon, lightly cured, traditionally hung and delicately cold smoked using real oak, beech and heather for a clean, subtle and buttery flavour. Sliced thickly for a firmer, more pleasant texture – from £14.95 for 200g to £72.50 for a whole side of salmon. According to the Great Taste Award judges, “The texture is amazing – rich, creamy and tender. We loved the gentle smokiness and creaminess and the subtle hint of juniper which helps keep the whole flavour clean. We were impressed how the overall flavour was so well balanced.”

28-day dry aged native-breed, free range bacon slowly dry-cured and dry aged for three to five weeks to provide a deeper and more concentrated flavour – from £5.95 for 180g for a single pack, £44.95 for a six monthly 180g pack subscription and £64.95 to double up the subscription to a 360g pack. A dry-aged bacon gift box perfect for Valentine’s Day is available for £16.90 and includes three different sleeves of bacon – streaky, bacon and smoked black streaky.

Charcuterie – London Smoke & Cure’s charcuterie range embraces everything about the company’s ethos: great quality ingredients, artisan processes, patience. Sourced from the same responsible farms as the bacon, each product is gently cured in salts and sugars and a delicate balance of natural herbs and spices. The coppa is air-dried in an ageing room for up to 5 months to intensify flavour. The salami is expertly blended, hand tied and fermented. Priced from £4.95 for a single pack of air dried smoked nduja/ coppa or chorizo to £64.95 for a six month charcuterie subscription.

Smoke School experiences – Looking ahead to when the lockdown is over, London Smoke & Cure offers a range of workshops which make ideal experiences for the bacon and
charcuterie lover. All the necessary precautions will be taken to ensure social distancing and the highest levels of hygiene. The hugely popular workshops include: Salami sessions, Makin’ Bacon, Smoke, Cure and Cook and are priced at £99.00 per person.

Gift vouchers from £20 are also available and more details on all the products can be found on the website: www.londonsmokeandcure.co.uk.

The team share a passion for the reinvention that comes from stripping a recipe back to the bare essentials and then building them back up again to make sure it is absolutely right.

The Great Taste Awards follow previous successes which include a silver medal for the Bresaola in the 2019 British Charcuterie Awards (the only Bresaola to be awarded), and a People’s Choice award for the Smoked Cheddar in 2018. London Smoke & Cure was also runner up in the ‘Producer of the Year’ category of the prestigious Observer Food Monthly Food Awards in 2018.

Merrythought Launches Giant Version of Christopher Robin’s Edward Bear

The UK’s oldest remaining teddy bear manufacturer is celebrating the 100 birthday of Edward Bear – the teddy bear who inspired AA Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories – by unveiling a giant version of the famous character.

As tall as the average three-year-old child, Merrythought’s brand-new ‘Giant Edward’ is an oversized version of the original bear, who was Christopher Robin’s cherished childhood toy, given to him by his mother Daphne as a first birthday present in August 1921.

Daphne’s husband and Christopher’s father, AA Milne, was so enamoured by the partnership he witnessed between a boy and his bear, that he began to write stories about their journey through life together – and Winnie the Pooh was born.

Hand-crafted in Shropshire, the premium teddy bear, which costs £1,095, is 39 inches tall and weighs 6.5kg.

Fourth-generation managing director Sarah Holmes said: “This special bear has been handmade in our factory in Ironbridge using the same traditional skills and natural materials as Christopher Robin’s original Edward Bear all those years ago.

“Now more than ever parents are recognising the value of traditional play, and encouraging children to use their imagination. The teddy bear is the perfect antidote for the digital world and a true companion for life’s journey.”

Featuring a rich, golden mohair coat and sandy-beige pure woollen felt paws, Giant Edward’s deep-set eyes, and hand-embroidered nose and friendly smile, give him real quintessential English charm.

Originally created by Farnell in 1921, Edward Bear was brought to life again for the 2017 Goodbye Christopher Robin film after Merrythought, which now owns the Farnell brand, was asked to recreate the bear that featured throughout the award-winning film.

Giant Edward is available to purchase from merrythought.com and harrods.com.

Merrythought’s original 18in Edward Bear is also available to buy throughout 2021, and sold with a complimentary gold-plated keyring that has been specially created to mark the character’s 100th birthday.

YORKSHIRE FIRM LAUNCHES REUSABLE ANTIVIRAL MASK

Huddersfield-based team behind health and eye-care specialist The Body Doctor have unveiled a new, reusable antiviral mask, proven to reduce tested viruses on the material surface by over 99% in just two hours.

The AB Mask Plus follows on from its anti-bacterial predecessor, created pre-COVID-19 to help clinically vulnerable people attend hospital appointments safely. Inspired by Production Manager Aden, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, the AB mask was helping keep people safe before masks became everyday wear for the nation.

The new AB Mask Plus comprises seven layers, with two layers of antiviral protected fabric and a five layer replaceable filter. The antiviral protection comes from a specially developed coating used, called Polygiene® ViralOff®, which is applied to breathable soft fabric that is washable. Each filter filters over 95% of non-oily, airborne particles and is effective for 40 hours’ use. It has been tested on a number of respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and while it cannot promise immunity, owing to the variety of ways these viruses can be transmitted, it can deliver a crucial reduction in viral load.

As COVID-19 restrictions continue to impact daily life, mask wearing is here to stay and much like with its other health and eye-care products, The Body Doctor is seeking to make life that bit easier with its range which are found on the high street as well as online.

The Body Doctor Production Manager and inspiration behind the original masks, Aden Bradley said: “AB Mask Plus is a timely and exciting addition to our product range and one I know will give people with health conditions like me, and now the wider public, a sense of greater confidence when wearing a mask.

“The fact that it can be washed and reused also helps mitigate the impact of mask wearing on the environment, another huge plus as we enter into a future that is likely to involve masks to some degree for months and possibly years to come.”

Stirling Distillery, in the heart of Scotland, is selling a special valentine’s gift set of their recently launched Pink Lady gin.

Combining a 50cl bottle and a 19fl copa glass, Pink Lady is a refreshing gin with 12 delicious botanicals including rose petals, pink peppercorns and pink grapefruit. It is delicately fragranced with juniper, spices and pepper to leave your taste buds craving more.

As part of Stirling Distillery’s folklore collection, the Pink Lady gin was named after a famous local legend. The pink lady was a beautiful young noblewoman betrothed to a brave Scottish knight who died defending Stirling castle against the English in the siege of 1304. Shortly after his death, the pink lady also died, heartbroken at the thought of never seeing her love again.

After last year, what we all need on Valentine’s Day is a hug. We bring you three cocktails each of which is tantamount to a hug in a glass. This is 2021, so it’s out with the old and in in with the ‘new normal’. Think of gin not solely as an aperitif or Champagne as the obvious go-to choice. English gin is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
These Brockmans Gin cocktails, which taste every bit as glamorous as they look, take you through the evening.
Each recipe makes two drinks.

Brockmans Curious Blue

First up is the Brockmans Curious Blue, brimming with blueberry notes to complement this extraordinary gin, with its blueberry and blackberry notes.

80ml Brockmans Gin

20ml Lemon juice
120ml Blueberry puree (bought in a sachet or home-made using about 200g of fresh or frozen berries)
100-140ml Ginger beer
Garnish: Dry ice (optional); blueberries or mint
Method
Shake the first four ingredients with ice. Strain into tall Collins glasses filled with a few dry ice pellets topped with ice cubes and then top with the ginger beer.
Garnish each drink with a mint sprig and a knotted bamboo skewer or a cocktail stick with 3 blueberries.

The Cosmopolitan Couple

The second cocktail to fall in love with is The Cosmopolitan Couple, glamorously red and quite delicious, this allows the botanicals in Brockmans to shine through.
Ingredients (serves two)
70ml Brockmans Gin
30ml Cointreau
30ml Fresh lime juice
60ml Cranberry juice
Garnish: Lime
Method:
Add the gin, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, cranberry juice and a handful of ice into a shaker. Shake and strain into chilled stemmed glasses and serve each cocktail with a lime twist.

After Hours Valentini

As night falls, complete a perfectly romantic evening with the rather indulgent After Hours Valentini. This is a drink which is truly, madly, and deeply desirable.
Ingredients (serves two)
70ml Brockmans Gin
30ml Mozart Dark Chocolate Liqueur
100ml Fresh espresso
To sweeten: add vanilla syrup, sugar syrup, or sugar cubes to required taste.
Garnish: Chocolate powder and coffee beans
Add the Brockmans Gin, chocolate liqueur and espresso into a shaker half-filled with ice and shake vigorously. Then strain into chilled Martini glasses.

How about this as a gift idea – or to use in a recipe to spice up Valentine’s celebrations … www.orrissandson.com

Here’s the latest news from Orriss & Son – hot chilli sauces ..

Transform your home cooking – NEW Orriss & Son’s chilli sauces bring another level of smart flavour to your table!

It looks like we could be set for a long winter so, to stop the blues setting in, why not add a dash (or more) of NEW Orriss & Son’s fermented chilli sauce to liven up your plate and your Valentine’s celebrations?

2020 has seen many of us getting more creative in the kitchen and experimenting with taste experiences from around the world to liven up everyday dishes, elevating them to something truly special. Now there’s a new weapon to add to your cookery arsenal. Produced in small batches to ensure maximum freshness and recipe integrity, NEW Orriss & Son is a deliciously punchy, specialist collection of fermented chilli sauces, that are vegan and gluten free. Orriss & Son Small Batch Sauces bring out the best in any dish, from adding a little tang to midweek meals to impressing family and friends with a dinner party extravaganza. Whatever your preferred usage, these game changing sauces will certainly pack a spicy kick and easily up the gastronomic ante to make mealtimes miles more exciting.

Examples of how Orriss & Sons sauces can work their magic include: as a marinade for fish, meat, vegetables or meat-free substitutes; added during cooking to increase the flavour intensity of a dish; dropped into a dressing to take salads to a whole new dimension; shaken into slow-cooked, braised favourites to cut through the richness of any long cooked dish or simply splashed neat onto a finished recipe to take homemade delights to another level. These incredibly versatile sauces really are the ideal way to customise your cooking and broaden your culinary horizons without having to leave the comfort of your own home!

The Orriss & Son bottles of ‘saucery’ also represents a healthy addition to your plate. A good source of protective antioxidants plus vitamins and minerals, chillies are a great addition to a nutritious, balanced diet. All in all, these three carefully crafted chilli condiments combine authenticity and deliciousness with ultimate convenience and health benefits. Choose from:

‘Even Flow’ – the one that started it all. Orriss & Son’s original recipe hot sauce, based on fiery and fruity habaneros plus red and smoked chillies, tomato and apple juices to deliver that defined ‘hit’. The hottest of the range and seriously addictive …

‘My Wave’ takes inspiration from the heat of the classic and now familiar piri-piri seasoning. Fresh and dried chillies are combined with red peppers, tomatoes and cider vinegar along with the traditional lemon, bay and garlic, to bring a fresh piquancy and balanced salinity to a host of dishes. You always need more piri-piri!

‘Fresh Tendrils’ is based on the subtle heat of fresh green jalapeños, balanced with green peppers, apple juice, earthy nettle and mint to impart a vibrant acidity in a tasty green sauce. We think of it as a gentle heat… transforming into a big tang!

Here’s our quick-fire guide to choosing your perfect palate partner:

· Enjoy the chilli heat and tingle only a habanero based hot sauce can provide? ‘Even Flow’ is for you!

· Love the tangy spice of green jalapeños but wary of going all-out? You’ll love ‘Fresh Tendrils’.

· Somewhere in the middle? The balanced piri-piri heat, sweetness and salinity of ‘My Wave’ is the ideal choice.

Lovingly created by David Underwood – chilli enthusiast, globetrotting chef and former co-owner of Steak & Honour in Cambridge (famed for their honest, next level American style burgers) – this trio of sauces brings to life his passion for well-rounded, balanced flavours to enrich any cooking and eating occasion.

NEW Orriss & Son Small Batch Sauces retail at £7.25 for a generous 200ml glass bottle and are available online from www.delishops.co.uk or directly from the Orriss & Son website www.orrissandson.com. Handcrafted in Cambridgeshire, a donation from the sale of each bottle also goes to www.wateraid.org. a WASH charity which changes millions of lives every year, working in 28 countries to provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

“Between laughing and crying I can’t believe that song you sent. The best gift I have ever received. I love you!” – Roger, San Francisco
Singstagram is like the celebrity shout out app Cameo, except the person receives a custom song that’s all about them! In the form of a music video.
I will write and record a custom song for their Valentine. Make them an actual Singstagram. And they have the option to add a custom lyric sheet that they can easily print themselves and frame.

As we continue to navigate life in a global pandemic, self-care has become more important than ever. We’re collectively under a lot of stress, and creating rituals around the things that make us feel good is a great way to soothe the anxieties we’re faced with daily. One way we can do this is by taking care of our skin, no matter our age. We’re proud of our universal products that promote radiant, glowing skin for all ages and skin types. At the root of each product is the resilient prickly pear cactus, a potent beauty elixir from our native Morocco that boasts hydrating, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits. We also believe that skin care should be clean and non-toxic, which is why we never use parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors or dyes in any of our formulas. Our Extreme Facial Oil is our star product, a luxurious treat infused 24-karat gold that nourishes and softens the skin without clogging the pores. It’s packed with antioxidants that protect against free radicals and UV damage while stimulating new cell growth. Massaging it into the skin with your fingertips or our amethyst roller makes for a beautiful, relaxing ritual to start or end your day with. For those seeking a bit more hydration, our Hydra Renewal Cream helps promote a gorgeous glow while also sealing in moisture, an essential benefit for the colder months of the year. It’s whipped, light-as-air texture delivers all the hydration the skin craves without ever feeling heavy or greasy. Ever since masks became our new normal, many of us have been dealing with “maskne,” or clusters of blemishes that crop up around the chin, lower cheeks, and nose. Our Skin Revival Clay Mask is a natural detoxifying treatment that helps fight maskne, unclogging congested pores while boosting clarity and firmness. Unlike many of the harsher clay masks out there, ours is ultra-gentle, making for a great spot treatment or as an allover mask—even for sensitive skin types.

Parents are always looking for advice on child raising but don’t realize that it might come from the most unlikely of sources – their own children, especially one with special needs. This Valentine’s Day, share a story of how one son’s love changed this father’s life for the better and allow others to let Sean’s love, kindness, and gratitude touch their lives, too.

In Live Like Sean: Important Life Lessons from My Special-Needs Son, entrepreneur, advocate, and former Chairman & CEO of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games TJ Nelligan reflects on the remarkable life of his beloved special-needs son, Sean, who passed away in 2019. Sean was born with intellectual disabilities that never prevented him from living a full, rich life or from profoundly touching the lives of everyone around him. Inspired after his son’s sudden passing, Nelligan provides a first-person perspective of seeing the world through Sean’s eyes, who taught the world more than it could ever teach him.

TJ’s story is very relatable to all of us on how our lives may not be what we had originally planned, but this does not make it any less spectacular. Live Like Sean is a feel-good book that is desperately needed right now so that we all may have hope and see the good in people.

Just In Time For Valentines

Recently released on Amazon, Passion: The Art of Making Love and War.. Passion: The Art of Making Love & War expresses love as the unbiddable, ungovernable, uncontrollable force that can overthrow empires, completely subduing the will of the individual. It posits the erotic love in terms of its beauty, sincerity and its purity. Yet it portrays this love according to its opposites as it is ancient and classical, yet bold and modern, the best kept secret yet bellowed from the mountaintop, passive and patient, yet heated, passionate and combustive in a single moment. Love is viewed as forceful and potent in terms of its consistency from one generation to the next in relation to God, humanity, romance, nature and society. Contrastingly, the book depicts in the Art of War, man’s inhumanity towards man in terms of race relations as well as political and socio-economic privileges. In this regard, the message speaks to and encapsulates what is needed today in America and other countries around the world in terms of equal rights, liberty and justice. The driving thrust of The Art of War is that the only thing that power respects is power and the only thing that force respects is force. In essence, Passion The Art of Making Love and War captures and encapsulates the pulse and the passion of a people.

As for the integrity of the work, to be a poet, one must have the ability to see beyond the superficial and despite the synthesis of rhythm, style and cadences, the poet must possess and master the craft of speaking to the hearts of men in a voice that touches the soul of his society, such is the same, whether in dance, painting, sculpture, music or any artistic creation. Passion: The Art of Making Love and War is simply a reflection of my life’s mantra and modus operandi, which is, “As one man can indeed make a difference,
my commitment to the next generation is that I will leave to them, a world, in a greater condition than the one that I was born into.”

FROM MANCHESTER GIN, WITH LOVE

MAKE VALENTINE’S A NIGHT WORTH STAYING IN FOR WITH THE ULTIMATE COCKTAIL KIT

Just because couples need to spend the most romantic night of the year at home in 2021, doesn’t mean they need to cancel Valentine’s Day all together.

To help celebrate, The Spirit of Manchester Distillery, home to Manchester Gin, is launching the ultimate cocktail kit to shake things up for a date night at home.

The Valentine’s Cocktails at Home Kit is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day, whether it’s to accompany a home-cooked feast or easy-peasy takeaway. The limited edition kit contains not only the ingredients for some amorous cocktails for two, but a step-by-step video guide from Seb Heeley and Jen Wiggins, Manchester Gin founders and Master Distillers.

These extra-special kits will be available from £75 and contain a full-sized bottle of Manchester Gin Raspberry Infused, all of the ingredients to make three delicious Valentine’s cocktails each – including the much loved Clover Club and two other Three Little Words’ favourites – a video hosted by Seb and Jen, recipe cards showing you exactly how to make each drink, and a selection of beautifully paired chocolate truffles from local chocolatier, Cocoa Cabana.

Numbers are strictly limited, so sign up in advance to secure your set and get exclusive early access. Head to Manchester Gin’s website to place your order from Friday 22nd January.

Manchester Gin co-founder and Master Distiller, Seb Heeley, said: “2021 might not have given us the happily ever after we all wished for just yet, but that doesn’t mean we have to cancel the most romantic day of the year. The response to our at-home cocktail kits last year was phenomenal, so we decided to create an extra-special one for Valentine’s Day.

“We are suckers for romance so we want to bring a bit of fun and some great cocktails to people at home. Just because we can’t reserve our favourite cosy table in a cocktail bar or enjoy a candlelit dinner in a romantic restaurant doesn’t mean there can’t be a bit of love in the air.”

If your loved one simply has a passion for good old G&T (we wouldn’t blame them if they did!), why not treat them to a bottle of Manchester Gin. From sweet Raspberry Infused to citrusy FAC51 Haçienda, herbaceous Wild Spirit to the classic Signature, there’s a flavour for all gin fans. All are available in a beautiful gift set containing tonic and glasses – perfect for G&Ts for two.

Mandarin Chocolate Mousse (gluten-free): if you’re a fan of chocolate orange, you’ll love this zesty mousse. A delicious indulgence for whatever your Valentine’s day agenda. Whether you want to impress a special someone with a delectable dessert or just want to treat yourself, this could be the recipe for you that will definitely have you wanting to save room for dessert.

Mandarin Chocolate Mousse

Gluten-free
Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients: Mandarin Gelatine:

· 1 can (300g) Del Monte® Mandarins in Juice

· 50ml water

· 25g caster sugar

· Zest of half an orange

· 12g gelatine powder – 1 sachet

Ingredients: Chocolate Mousse:

· 120g dark chocolate, chopped

· 25g butter, cubed

· 1 tsp instant coffee

· 3 large eggs, separated

· 2 tbsp caster sugar

· 150ml whipping cream

Method:

1. Drain the mandarin oranges and add the juice, water, sugar and orange zest into a saucepan and let simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat and sprinkle the gelatine powder into the liquid. Whisk until the gelatine dissolves completely then divide into four dessert glasses, distributing the mandarin oranges equally among them. Leave to set in the fridge for 3 hours.

2. Add the chocolate, butter and coffee in a bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Gently stir to help it melt. Once melted, remove the bowl from the heat and set aside until lukewarm. Stir the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture, one by one.

3. In a separate bowl, use an electric whisk to mix the egg whites to soft peaks. Using a low speed, gradually add the sugar and mix to stiff peaks. Fold into the chocolate mixture, then fold in the rest gently. Pour the mixture over the mandarin gelatine. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours until set.

4. When serving, whip the cream to soft peaks. Top each glass with a spoonful of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
