Wedding Food and Drink

One of the highest things on a wedding guest’s list for a great wedding has to be the food and drink (second of course to watching the lovely couple get married!). It goes without saying that you want to enjoy the food and drink at your own wedding too – and it can be a very special and memorable aspect of your day.

Firstly, have an idea of how much you have to spend – catering options can appear extremely expensive, but there are always options to cut down on the costs, like avoiding ‘wedding’ packages (which often have an immediate mark up) and going for local or mainstream companies and deals. Find out what’s included in the price: for example, waiting staff, crockery and glassware, seating arrangements and VAT. Many drinks companies offer free glass hire along with your order, or a ‘sale or return’ option which means you can return any unopened bottles of wine after the wedding and get a refund. Another way of cutting down costs is to serve the wedding cake as dessert – choosing a different flavour for each tier gives a nice

Which Foods and Drinks

Food is nutrition, and nutrition is necessary for good oral health, among other things. Like every other system in the body, the nutrition you bring into your body affects how well it performs, and how long it stays healthy. This includes your teeth, gums and mouth, and your oral health in general. You may not realize some foods are “mouth healthy”, but some are.

What is Mouth Healthy in Your Home?

When selecting foods and drinks for maximizing your oral health, look for those that help to fight bacteria – the #1 bad organism that is in your mouth. Some foods can do it very well.

For example, enjoying cheese and other milk products, without adding sugar, is a great way to protect the enamel on your teeth. This outer layer of the teeth is the first to be destroyed by bacteria, but these dairy products help. They provide calcium and phosphorus that’s necessary to bring minerals to the teeth. According to the WebMD website, making minerals available for teeth supports a natural process in which new minerals are

Food and Drink

Food and drink have become a major part of most people’s lives, in particular their social lives. In fact the phrase ‘food and drink’ produces over 89 million hits on the Google website. Excessiveness in either is of course unhealthy, but perhaps this is one of the reasons why people see good food or good wine as something special, something to treat themselves with.

Guides to good food, wine and restaurants have become big business. Egon Ronay’s ‘Guide to the Best Restaurants and Gastropubs in the UK’ which provides detailed reviews of over 500 restaurants and gastropubs has sold over 2 million copies. Its simple to compare style of awarding up to three stars to each restaurant is clearly a hit with readers.

‘The Good Food Guide’ edited by Elizabeth Carter sells itself as Britain’s leading restaurant guide and is currently in it 56th edition, detailing over 1,500 eateries from gastropubs to high end dining.

Fine wine guides are also a big seller, with books such as Clarke’s ‘Fine Wine Guide: A Connoisseur’s Bible’ and Johnson-Bell’s ‘Good Food, Fine Wine: A Practical Guide to Finding the Perfect

The Food and Drink Combination For a Healthier You

People have been haggling over the price for health and what it will cost them to get a healthier body. It doesn’t have to be much, as you will soon find out, because of this simple combination of food and drink that has been giving health buffs all over the world a lean, good-looking and a healthy physique. Here is the food and drink you should start partaking to bring out the best in you.

Fruits and vegetables are with no doubt a very good combination of food to help you with giving your body the nutrients that it need, not to mention that it helps with the intestines with the digestion of food. Properly digested foodstuff also means the proper derivation of nutrients and minerals to be distributed throughout the body.

Since fruits and vegetables have low calorie and high protein contents, you don’t really have to worry about getting those extra pounds. Eat as much of these food groups as you can. But you don’t have to make your diet exclusive to these foods.

There are certain meat products that you can take without you worrying over how much calories they can give

Certain Food And Drink Could Be To Blame

If you’re like several of my patients you may have an overactive bladder which keeps you running to the bathroom to urinate frequently. Some people have smaller bladder capacities than others and therefore naturally have to urinate more. Other people may be eating certain foods that can irritate their bladder causing the need them to urinate. I’d like to explain to you what some of these foods are and what you can do to minimize your “going” issues.

Overactive Bladder – What Is It?

Overactive bladder is a mild to severe condition that can not only become a nuisance in always creating the to find a restroom while you’re out in public, but can also have some embarrassing consequences. It is also a condition that can be accompanied by something called “urge incontinence”, or UI, where you have to go so badly you just can’t hold it and urine leaks into your clothes; or “stress incontinence”, or SI, where you have involuntary leakage of urine through laughing or sneezing. Usually UI and SI are just variant symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome which also can include nocturia (waking up at night to urinate) and frequency, just “going”

Carolina Rethinks Student Rules on Food and Drink

No gum. No food. No candy. No drinks. It’s easy to understand why elementary school students are asked to follow classroom rules. Teachers are too busy to spend time scraping gum off the floors and the underside of desks and mopping up spills made by their students. Perhaps it is far easier to simply forbid all food and drinks from the classroom. However the teachers and parents at the school where I serve as principal recently decided to rethink some of their rules nor the benefit of the students.

Why? Think about it this way. Let’s say a child eats dinner at home at 6:00pm on most evenings. The child goes to bed around 8:30pm and awakens early enough to get on the school bus at 6:30am. At this early hour there may not be time for breakfast. School lunch is served at 12 noon during the school day. That is a whopping 18 hours without food, an unreasonable amount of time for a tiny growing body.

Similarly, students may never have the opportunity to drink fresh water. Dehydration can cause students to become sluggish and tired. Drinking water helps curb the appetite and flush out

Food and Drink in Kenya

Drawn from diverse ethnic cultures and traditions fused with tastes absorbed from foreign countries, food and drink in Kenya are in a league of their own. They are also central in consolidating the collectivist nature that Kenyans are known for by bringing family and friends together.

The way foods and drinks are prepared and presented in Kenya greatly attest to the long-standing links and contacts Kenya has had with Arabian, European and Indian settlers. However, the Kenyan flavors are not eroded, with each of the 42 local tribes boasting of their own traditional cuisine.

Common Kenyan Foods

An agriculturally fertile country, Kenya is not short of all sorts of vegetables and fruits. Although when visiting certain restaurants, the menu may read like an international menu featuring foods such as French fries, hamburgers and macaroni and cheese as well as rice, pizza, chicken nuggets and fish fingers.

The more traditional foods of Kenya include:

    • Irio – Also known as ‘Mukimo‘ or ‘Kienyeji‘, a dish originally from the Kikuyu tribe. It’s a combination of maize and beans, mashed with cooked bananas or potatoes.

    • Ugali – Corn cake made by stirring

Ludlow Marches Food and Drink

There is nothing I like better than eating and drinking so the Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival is quite possibly the ideal weekend away…but it’s the last place to go if you’re watching your waistline! Named England’s Finest Market Town by Country Life Magazine some years ago, Ludlow has a long tradition of selling quality local foodstuffs from the regular market.

Whether food is a part of your working life or you just appreciate good food and drink this is the place for you.

Set in Ludlow, Shropshire and held between the 7th and 9th of September this year, the Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival celebrates everything that is great about eating and drinking.

The first festival was held in 1995 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

The timing of the festival means you can usually count on great weather and Shropshire is home to some of the UK’s loveliest countryside.

The festival’s objective is to celebrate the quality and diversity of the independent food and drink producers in and around Ludlow and the Marches.

Industrially-produced products do not feature in the festival, this is all about

What Sort Of Food And Drink

If you are wondering what sort of food and drink should I take regularly help me lose weight, then you have come to the right place. There are many fat loss foods that people can eat so that they can lose weight. However, it is important for every person to remember that the best weight loss programs take time to produce long lasting results.

When you want to shed off a few pounds, there are some meals that you must avoid. For instance, sugary and fatty foods must be eliminated from your diet, especially if your metabolism is too slow. This is because all the sugar and fats that are not used up in the body are stored as fat in different parts of the body. That being said, processed foods that have a lot of industrial sugar and fat must be avoided at all costs.

Drinking a lot of water everyday is the best advice anyone can ever give you. Water flushes out all the toxins out of the body. It also keeps skin cells and other types of cells in the body replenished. This means that water makes you look younger and livelier. The

Different Types Of Energy Foods And Drinks

A good diet can help you get the best sports and fitness results. Runners, hikers, cyclists, etc. need an infusion of energy from foods and drinks for peak performance. Furthermore, there are energy drink and food options that would help you by fuelling your ambitions. These foods and drinks are energy boosters and would improve your physique and give you strength. Here are some of the energy foods and drinks.

Energy bars

In most cases, energy bars are recommended for eating after workouts during the recovery phase and sometimes, before workouts. Bars that contain slightly higher protein and fat content are good to eat one hour or more before your workout. The high-grade carbohydrates present in energy bars provide a boost to the endurance levels of a person during their workout session. Some energy bars give you significant amounts of protein, which is needed by athletes. Many other bars have been prepared to offer a specific ratio of carbs and proteins. The others appeal to those needing gluten-free nutrition or vegans. Some bars are known as organic bars and offer a high percentage of ingredients that are organic.

How Much Will My Guests Eat & Drink?

As a host, when you invite people to your house, it is usually a goal to make sure your guests are comfortable, having fun, and enjoying themselves. Part of making sure this is accomplished is being assured that everyone has enough to eat and drink during your party. You do not want to have a situation where food and alcohol has to be rationed to make sure everyone gets a little.

There are many factors to consider when figuring out how much to buy. First, you will need to create your guest list. In order to buy the right amount of supplies you need to know how many people will be attending your party. Once you have this number determined, you will need to decide what you will be serving. Generally, a typical meal at a dinner party will include appetizers, salad, a meat of some type, a starch, vegetables, dessert, and drinks. You can decide to make all of the items yourself, have some guests bring a dish, or buy some of the items already prepared. You will also need to factor in the number of hours that you expect your party to last.

Some Low Carb Foods Can Make You Happy

For low carb diet foods to make you happy, they need to be the right kinds of low carb foods and drinks. If you’re reading this and thinking about things like ice cream, cookies or sweet rolls as foods that make you feel good, that is not where we’re going with this. Also, we’re not talking about low carb snack foods that are usually lacking in any real nutrition. To understand precisely what we’re discussing, let’s take a look at how certain nutrients affect the brain, the nervous system and your overall mood.

Let’s say you’ve got an important business presentation and your nervous about standing up in front of a group of your peers. Which of these would you choose to calm your anxiety?

A. A diet soda

C. A handful of Gummy Bears

D. A low carb food formula in a health drink

Happy Hours and Food and Drink Specials

At times when everybody lives on a tighter budget looking for money saving opportunities is high priority. People still love to go out, meet friends after work, enjoy a good dinner but it can get expensive to do that. Happy hours and discounted food specials are really popular among people every age group. Restaurants are trying to fulfill that need with discounted menus and happy hours. But discovering these deals is not that easy. Happy hours are not really advertised that much and finding out who has specials and when is almost impossible. Even online you have to dig deep.

Still, looking online for coupons is really popular. But not everybody wants to spend hours on the computer to search for the best deal and then it still needs to be printed out and taken to the restaurants. To be honest, not everybody likes to show up with paper clippings. Another way to look for bargains is to search local papers but most restaurants do not want to spend the money on costly ads anymore.

Membership programs offer members to save money and to find deals online. Restaurants and bars often post specials to spoil members

Wedding Food and Drink

With so many things to organise in the lead up to your wedding, it might just be a good idea to keep wedding food and drink uncomplicated. But to ensure your and your guests taste buds are satisfied, choosing seasonal and high quality food are the best things you could do. Not hard to do – and still affordable.

The hardest part of choosing what food and drink to have for your wedding is trying to suit everyone’s tastes. You should choose a menu that suits a range of tastes so that the majority of your guests will really enjoy their food, looking back on your wedding day as quite memorable.

There are many options for food at your reception but we have narrowed it down to three, to help you make a decision more easily. You can have canapés – snack food -, a buffet or a sit down lunch or dinner, depending on when your reception is.

Financial crisis and food

During tougher economical times, a buffet could be a good option as it’s most cost effective. There’s a great range of foods you can choose if you opt for the buffet,

Custom Food and Drink Promotional

Every year, custom food and drink items rank high on the list of the most popular and best-selling promotional products. Products in this category range from packs of gum and individually-wrapped mints to holiday popcorn tins and towering chocolate gift baskets! These delicious products are most commonly used as business gifts, but they are also perfect for trade shows, parties, fundraisers, and promoting brand awareness.

There’s a lot to think about when it comes to customizing edible promotions. One of the important things to remember is that with most food-items, the amount of exposure your logo will get will be short-lived. Unlike other promotional items such as pens or magnets, food is eaten and then the packaging is discarded. So, you’ll need to make a great first impression to ensure that you’re getting the most for your marketing dollars.

One way to make a big impression with custom food and drink promotional items is by choosing a brand name product that people recognize and admire. Brands like Ghiradelli, Jelly Belly, and Mrs. Fields are some examples of renowned brands that most people have already formed a positive opinion of. By imprinting your logo on one of

Without Eating Or Drinking We’d All Die

“Live Long and Prosper,” Spock said. This is decent advice, and there is an old saying from the Viking days, it goes something like this; “Be Well, Live Well, and Live Longest,” which is also good advice. But today, I’d like to talk to you about some advice that many people feel very dear to their heart. Most people want to live healthy, drink good wine, and eat great meals.

What more could you ask for?

In the United States of America we have a solid middle-class, and as people reach the top of the middle class and start bumping up against the upper class, their priorities change. They wish to dine at the best restaurants, and enjoy themselves with the best wine. Who can blame them right? Indeed this is all true.

The interesting thing about all this is that provides an excellent opportunity for online article authors who wish to write about this topic. It’s amazing how many people read restaurant reviews, and how many people go online to learn information about their favorite wines, or to learn trivia facts about where the wine was grown, in which vineyard it came from, and

Get Rid of Bad Foods and Drinks

Being overweight is truly disturbing, especially if we are highly preoccupied with the way we look. It can stop us from fitting into the clothes we like, and make us feel bad and unattractive. Even worse, having more weight than we normally should have can affect our health. That is why, for the sake of our looks and health, we should take care of our eating and drinking habits and change our life style. We will notice the difference after a while and realize all the effort is worth it.

I say effort because it is never easy to follow a diet, work out every day, and stick to the plan. Probably the hardest part of all it is giving up all the food and beverage we are used to. The problem is that some of the food and drinks we really like are harmful to us. Junk food is on top of most people’s preferences, but it is also responsible of them gaining a lot of weight in a short time, that is why, it is the first thing we need to give up when we start a diet. It will be hard to walk on

Making the Most of PR in the Food

The food and drink sector is especially competitive, and an effective PR strategy can give you and your product the edge.

Below are some tips on getting started.

Before you begin…

In order for your consumer PR to have any effect at all, you first need to ensure that your product is in the stores and available for customers to buy – consumer titles won’t even consider promoting your product if it isn’t widely available. Likewise, the more stores you can get your product in to, the more likely you are to get press coverage.

Trade titles

If you have a new product that you want to shout about, this is the place to do it. When your press release is ready, call your chosen magazine. Explain briefly who you are, why you’re calling and what the press release is about, then ask who the best person to send it through to via email would be.

Once you’ve established these contacts, by sure to check in with the journalists regularly – building a relationship can be extremely beneficial as it is more likely to lead to repeat coverage.

Hungry for Some Tricks?

Thank God some tricks can be shared for all to imbibe. As food and drink photography becomes more of a niche, restaurant shutterbugs are in demand. Shooting irresistible pancakes and making them look oven fresh can be demanding. The trick lies in capturing the ‘freshest and ripest moment’. You may ask how many pancakes and honey syrup it takes to get the shoot right? Not more than a triple-decker of three pancakes! And the strategy lies in setting up the props before the ‘subject’ has arrived fresh out of the non-stick pan. A shutterbug with decent skills can do the lighting well in advance. So if you are in catering business, which is online, having delicious pictures of the menu can be the best bet for getting good business.

To make the food look digestible, the lead photographer will have the assistants arrange the studio bay first. The setting may take an hour or two. Why are we saying this? Because hot steaming food can look limp if it is bought before the shoot. The assistants will assemble the cameras, lens and the tripod stand. The controlling lights, white balance, bouncers and scrims will be positioned for
