Honeybee Gin, prepares an exclusive preview tasting session as it goes on sale exclusively in Fortnum & Mason’s as from October. Honeybee Gin, the latest addition from craft distilling stalwarts, husband and wife team Tom and Tina Warner. Inspired by the plight of bees across the UK and the world – which are suffering depopulation due to the use of new pesticides that prevent wildflower growth – this gin is the latest in the Warner Edwards Limited Edition Botanical Garden Range.

Its unique botanical blend includes responsibly-sourced honey, grapefruit peel and chamomile. In all, almost 30 botanicals go into this amazing blend, including one top-secret ingredient.  If all goes to plan, we are all hoping Chelsea Monthly readers might be lucky enough to have a taste of Honeybee Gin at the prestigious upcoming 7th annual National Reality TV Awards.

* 47% of consumers would view a business more favorably if it served high quality coffee
* Millennials are six times more likely to view a business harshly, while men are twice as likely to take their business elsewhere if served poor quality coffee

Businesses are being urged to take a fresh look at their coffee offer to delight their customers and improve the customer experience. The call to improve the services on offer follows new research, commissioned by Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) Professional, that reveals 72% of consumers expect to be served a hot beverage when making a significant purchase or when seeking professional advice.

The survey of 1,000 consumers, revealed at the launch of JDE’s new Promesso coffee solution, also highlighted the power of coffee to make an unforgettable first impression, with one in two consumers likely to view a business favourably if it served high-quality coffee in the lobby or reception area. The research also showed that men are twice as likely to take their business elsewhere if businesses neglect their coffee offering, while millennials are six times more likely to take a negative view of a business as a result.

“Coffee plays a significant role in consumers’ lives and provides those all-important moments of relaxation and indulgence,” explained Heike Wiesner, JDE Professional. “Businesses need to examine how high-quality coffee can be one of the subtle nuances that puts them ahead of the competition, and change how their customers view them. It’s important not to risk disappointing your customers by taking a chance on your coffee offer.”

Consumers’ appreciation of the breadth of coffee styles and flavours has dramatically increased, resulting in coffee overtaking tea as the nation’s favourite hot beverage. In the UK, more than 21 million cups[iii] are consumed each day out of home and there is an expectation for high quality and variety, regardless of the location.

To create the opportunity for customers to enjoy the personalisation and service that they have come to expect – irrespective of where they are – a high-quality coffee solution is needed. JDE’s Promesso offers businesses just that. Recognised by the Red Dot Awards for product design, Promesso impressed the judges who said it ’embodied an entirely new generation of fully automatic coffee makers’. Its ‘stylistic idiom that skilfully borrows elements from the era of Art Deco, blending with modern details’, unprecedented coffee personalisation and clearly designed touchscreen fascinated the judges, who described it as ‘elegant to handle in office environments’. Its perfect combination of functionality and quality is combined with effortless interaction and ease of use. No training is needed and it’s easy to maintain, requiring no more than seven minutes per week to clean, just 13% of the time needed to service fully automatic espresso machines.

It offers consumers fresh-bean quality coffee, tailored to each consumer’s personal taste, serving up to 130 cups per hour using JDE’s Promesso Blend No.1. Made from the finest selection of 100% Arabica beans, Promesso Blend No.1 is optimised for an Espresso coffee taste profile. This characterful, UTZ Certified sustainable coffee carefully combines roasted notes with rich aromas for a deep, well-balanced taste with a sweet nuance and is at the heart of Promesso’s personalised offering. For example, Promesso enables users to customise every element of their favourite hot beverage by adjusting the strength, volume and even coffee to milk ratio. Favourite beverages can even be saved to a personal profile, making it easy to access personalised drinks at a touch of a button.

“Consumers are all different – they have their individual style, personal tastes and unique character – and this drives their desire for a coffee that meet their needs and mood, no matter the activity or location,” explained Wiesner. “Promesso is a coffee solution that is smart, innovative and takes care of itself. As businesses look to improve their customer service and stand out from the competition, the coffee they choose to serve could be that all important differentiator. Promesso is ideal for businesses in the corporate and hospitality sectors looking to serve premium quality coffee without the hassle and training required by more complicated coffee solutions.

“It allows businesses to surprise and impress customers with a high-quality coffee shop experience, that surpasses their expectations, improves customer service and enhances consumer’s perceptions of the business. It means businesses across the corporate, hospitality and leisure sectors can treat their customers to a hot beverage experience that offers the quality to impress and consistency to deliver the perfect coffee, in every cup. With eight varieties of premium hot beverages on offer, and endless personalisation options, businesses and their customers no longer have to compromise.”

She may be the darling of the celebrity media but coffee lover and TV star Melanie Sykes has revealed, given the choice, she’d rather spend her time relaxing in front of a box-set.

 

The TV star, model and mum has revealed her ultimate way to relax is to be at home, chilling out in front of her favourite Netflix series – with a cup of her favourite Lyons Coffee in hand.

Best known for her role as a TV and radio presenter, Mel co-hosted Let’s Do Lunchwith Gino D’Acampo for three years and has recently appeared on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and Sky’s Fit In Five.

 Mel, who has just been announced as the new face of Lyons Coffee Bags, confesses to spending much of her time chilling out in comfy clothes and watching episodes of The Sopranos.

Mostly you will find me sitting at home watching box-set after box-set. I don’t know where my life would be without Netflix. I will just devour entire series in one sitting.

 

Mel is also a massive coffee aficionado. She says becoming the new face of Lyons Coffee Bags was a natural and obvious choice, as she’s such a big fan.

She said: “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Lyons coffee. Everyone knows I’m a coffee lover – I can’t start the day without one – and Lyons Coffee Bags have completely transformed the way I enjoy my coffee. I have a very busy schedule so the bags are perfect as I can take them with me in my handbag and enjoy them anytime, anywhere.  I also love that there are three strengths and a decaf option, so I can satisfy my coffee cravings whenever the mood takes me.  Forget fiddly pods and cleaning up – just add water and go… genius!”

 Mel has just launched a lifestyle website which gives a great insight into how she keeps herself trim and healthy but also offers advice and inspiration to others on fitness, food and parenting. She’s also big into meditation – and uses her smartphone for inspiration. “I do those meditation apps on my phone. I do get anxious about things so they really relax me,” she admits.

 Lyons coffee bags are an every-day coffee hero, perfect for busy people like Mel, who want convenience but don’t want to compromise on flavour. The bags contain 100% freshly ground coffee beans and are easy to prepare – just add freshly boiled water, stir, and brew for three-four minutes until the coffee is as strong as required.

 Quick and easy to use, they are ideal choice for busy mums, active families or time pressured commuters on the go.

REVEALED: THE WIERD AND WACKY WAY BRITS EAT THEIR EGG – FROM DUNKING PIGS-IN-BLANKETS TO CREATING ‘YOLK SPREAD’

  • As hen eggs trump chocolate eggs, it’s time to dip into how the nation eats the oozy delight and what it can reveal about your personality

According to latest research, eggs have much to be ‘egg-static’ about this Easter, as a third (31%)of Brits admit they prefer to reach for traditional soft boiled eggs over their chocolate equivalents.

Results of the study commissioned by the happy egg co., also found that, as a nation of foodies, there is great variety in how we tuck into our soft boiled eggs. Gone are the days where we stick to traditional toasted soldiers for dipping. Brits are now opting for: crispy bacon, asparagus, croque monsieur, chips, pigs in blankets and even fish fingers. Eating behaviours have also advanced, ranging from new found methods such as peeling the shell and smashing on toast to, right through to creating ‘yolk spread’ (spreading the yolk on toast), and even using the yolk as a pouring sauce.

 

 

How we eat our soft boiled eggs can even provide some revealing clues about our personalities. Human behaviour expert, Dr Jane Cox has been analysing soft boiled egg eating behaviours and is able to attribute different personality traits to people depending on their egg-eating methods:

  • 41% of Brits eat their soft boiled egg in an egg cup; dipping ‘soldiers’ of any kind (toast, asparagus, bacon etc). Dr Cox says: This way of egg-eating shows stability and convention. Most people learn to eat boiled eggs this way and some never feel need to change tradition.
  • A fifth of Brits eat their egg in an egg cup; scooping out the egg with a teaspoon. Dr Cox says: This is no nonsense approach to eggs that’s bound to be reflected in other parts of their lives. No accompaniments, no stopping to savour, just doing what needs to be done.
  • Nearly a quarter of Brits eat their soft boiled egg from the wide, bottom side as opposed to the traditional pointy, narrow end. Dr Cox says: Those who turn their egg on its head probably approach lots of things in their lives differently. They’re likely to reject what doesn’t work for them and seek more of what they enjoy.
  • One fifth of people prefer to shell their soft boiled egg and eat it on toast. Dr Cox says: A degree of practicality features within those who shell their eggs. They also have a lovely sense of humour.

 

Human behaviour expert, Dr Jane Cox, who was involved in the study, commented: “The way that we eat is an expression of our individualism and can reveal a lot about our personalities. Your reliability, adventurousness, sensitivity or hunger for life may be seen in the way that you scoop, tip, or dip your way through the yolk.  Perhaps you’re a dipper, easy going and stable or a scooper, someone who doesn’t like to waste a moment of time.  A tipper reveals you have a dreamy gentle personality, and a smasher, unsurprisingly just gets stuck into life and enjoys every day.”

The trend towards traditional hen eggs at Easter comes at a time when egg consumption is booming as a result of recognised nutrition and health benefits, versatility, baking and a shift toward ‘brunch’ dates with friends. In the week of Easter alone, over 100million individual eggs are expected to be bought.

The hotly anticipated addition to Central London’s dining scene opens 6th May 2017 and specialises in the uniquely fresh and vibrant flavours of Mexico and Peru. Situated on one of London’s most iconic squares, Leicester Square Kitchen offers contemporary small plates in a stylish and relaxed, shared dining environment.

Sister restaurant to May Fair Kitchen and Monmouth Kitchen, which is currently TripAdvisor’s number one rated Peruvian restaurant in London, Leicester Square Kitchen features an equally inventive menu, which draws on the distinctive tastes and ingredients found in contemporary Mexican and Peruvian food.

Diners can choose from signature dishes like the Mexican-inspired Mayan-spiced marinated chicken ensalada, flavoured with cashews, black lime and sesame oil, or tiger prawn soft tacos with spicy papaya habanero salsa. The Peruvian influence is clear in the Robata-grilled Pisco-glazed smoked paprika ribs and lime; Robata-seared tenderstem broccoli and charred kale and shimeji mushroom anticucho, served in a hot clay pot. Desserts also draw on the fragrant flavours of the region, featuring coconut, lime, guava and mango. Each dish is complemented by a range of cocktails, each drawing on Mexican and Peruvian roots, including an Aztec Negroni, blended with Maestro Dobel Humito and bitters, and a Chilli & Lychee Margarita which features Ilegal Joven mezcal, Kwai Feh lychee liqueur and green chilli and lime notes.

The new Leicester Square Kitchen is defined by dark architectural wall sections and enlarged windows looking onto Leicester Square and capturing the energy of red carpet events. The white bar, clad with white architectural glazed brick has a zinc top complemented by white bar chairs, where guests can either sit for a drink or dine from the live taco bar

Tables of varying heights have the definitive white calacarta marble this time with black legs and De La Espada butterfly chairs in black ash and caramel leather upholstery. This recognisable ‘Kitchen’ has a smarter edge. Hurel long benches with caramel leather pads and back rests wrap around architectural brick walls ready for guests to lean back and enjoy a tacos off white marble tables. Outside, smart black awnings with refined white stripes cover black and white Kartell chairs surrounded with black planters filled with shrubs and flowering plants that will keep pace with the seasons.

“Leicester Square Kitchen joins our portfolio of ‘Kitchens’ which includes Monmouth Kitchen and May Fair Kitchen. Like the others it offers an inventive mix of flavours offering the best contemporary shared dining with a menu that draws on the beautifully fresh, spicy flavours of Mexico and Peru. Given the iconic location, inviting interiors and innovative cuisine, we’re confident our guests will have the very best experience – whether they join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner or an evening drink”, explains Amir Jati, ex-Nobu Head of Private Dining and now Service Excellence Director for Edwardian Hotels London, owners of Leicester Square Kitchen.

Leicester Square Kitchen offers all-day dining with breakfast served from 7-10:30am Monday to Friday, and until 11am on Sundays. Lunch is from 12-3pm Monday to Friday (until 3:30pm on Sundays), while dinner is served from 5-10:45pm Sunday – Wednesday, and until 11:15pm Thursday-Saturday.

Belvedere revealed the new (PRODUCT)RED limited edition bottle, featuring the vibrant and powerful artwork of celebrated Ndebele artist Esther Mahlangu, alongside John Legend’s signature. Available from September at select retailers around the world.

“I always wanted to give back but [being a father] just gives you,even more reason to want the world to be a better place because you want the world to be better for your kids than it was for you. I think it’s been great for me but if we can make it even better for Luna that’d be great.”

“Being a father… you feel just so much love, you feel that connection with your wife and with your daughter, and I think it’s a powerful thing to start building a family, and I love that feeling.”
