The British manufacturer of pottery Denby Pottery will relaunch itself into the hospitality sector at Hotelympia, the UK’s largest foodservice and hospitality event. Making great food look beautiful has always been one of Denby’s core values and research shows that nearly half of us think the way our food is presented is just as important as how it tastes.

The trends of plain white tableware have long gone and now, people want to see more interesting plates and bowls that showcase dishes both at home and when they eat out. Denby’s artisan handmade ranges of tableware are eminently placed to provide a beautiful canvas for all kind of cuisines.

The company has an experience of over 200 years in design and craftsmanship, which makes them specialists in colour and reactive all over glazes that are totally unique and extremely hard wearing. By using the Derbyshire stoneware clay, which is very strong and fully vitrified, the products acquire strength, durability, and chip resistance. They are made to resist the hard conditions of commercial restaurants and kitchens and to prove how confident Denby is in its range, it offers the Denby 10 year Edge Chip Warranty.

The manufacturer’s ranges are designed to be beautiful and practical at the same time, being tested to tough industry standards as well. Every single one of their plates and bowls are designed to stack and they all are dishwasher, freezer, microwave, and oven safe. They have an extensive range of shapes and patterns, with over 25 coupe plates that complement how modern chefs present their dishes.

Denby already has a customer base that includes restaurants from all over the world. If you are interested in Denby’s fresh look and the range it has on offer, the company can be found at Hotelympia between the 5th and the 8th of March on Stand No. 2237.

Wing Wing, Chimaek chicken joint, has announced the opening of a second site in Hammersmith on the 13th of March, following the success of the first site on Woburn Place.

The new venue is almost twice the size of the original one and it will feature a dedicated ground floor take away and delivery counter, showcasing an extended menu of Wing Wing’s signature Bao Nut and Coffee offering. Going down the large, neon lit stairwell, guests will find a vibrant, modern, 180 cover dining area that features playful, provocative signage and subtle nods to their Asian roots.

There will also be two extensive private dining rooms available, fitted with 60 inch TV screens and the latest karaoke equipment, two cocktail bars, and the world’s smallest disco with a maximum capacity of just two. The new location will see the introduction of Wing Wing’s corporate delivery offering, serving-up anything from single lunchboxes to party packs and towering 100 wing trays to local offices.

Wing Wing will continue to serve up the freshest chicks, double-fried Korean-style and individually brushed with glory to suit the diner’s choice of three lip-smacking glazes; Soy Garlic, Hot or Liquorice. Asian-inspired comfort food favourites such as Katsu Bao, Seaweed Fries and Kimchi Coleslaw will also be heading west.

Chimaek originated in Korea, but was perfected on the streets of New York’s Lower East Side, serving-up trays of fresh, crispy-style chicken wings glazed with unique flavour combinations and stacked high alongside ice-cold beer. Wing Wing Hammersmith will feature the innovative ‘Bottoms-Up’ beer system, which they introduced to the UK with the Woburn Place opening back in May of last year. Offering self-service, ice-cold pints in four to seven seconds, the beer is poured from the bottom up through the base of the glass. Hammersmith guests will be able to use the Bottoms-Up beer dispensers either at the bar or built-in to the private room dining tables.

The restaurant starters will include Salt baked celeriac with baby fennel, apple and pistachio emulsion and Rabbit loin with roasted langoustine, carrot and green olives. For mains, Grilled turbot, savoy cabbage and Morteau sausage will be served with a sauce of rosemary and Garstang White cheese from Lancashire, while Yorkshire Wolds duck breast will be marinated in Forest Gin botanicals and served with confit duck leg and juniper sauce.

There will also be a more casual grill available with starters such as Crab Thermidor and Hand-raised game pie with pistachio, prune and quince, followed by main courses such as Braised Texel lamb hot-pot pie with red cabbage for two to share, and a selection of local rare breed steaks, all carefully sourced from local farmers and presented to guests on bespoke wooden boards before being cooked on the grill.

One of the bars will be located between the restaurant and the bar, while the second one will be on the large rooftop terrace.

The interiors were created by the award-winning New York-based firm, CetraRuddy, and the UK-based design agency DesignLSM.

Chef Aiden Byrne commented on the launch of 20 Stories the following: “I am thrilled to be launching this new venture with D&D London and can’t wait to open the doors and start welcoming guests. The different food we’ll be serving in the restaurant and grill mean we will have something for everyone. I am equally passionate about both styles of food – what matters to me is that they share the same ethos and integrity, and that are prepared using the same excellent local produce.”

The Feversham Arms Hotel in Helmsley, North Yorkshire, has relaunched its Sunday Lunch offering with a brand new menu. Its 2 AA Rosette restaurant, The Weathervane, has created the sumptuous new menu to expand its already popular dining offering and welcome a new wave of guests to the hotel during the busy weekend period.

The new menu includes a variety of dishes designed to make the traditional families happy. Some of the starters available are cream of celeriac soup with toasted hazelnuts and burkes blue cheese, pressing of ham hock, and a modern take on the classic prawn cocktail with king prawn tempura.

“We’re really excited to be relaunching our Sunday Lunch menu this month. A traditional Sunday lunch holds a special place in so many of our hearts, so it’s great to have this to offer guests and visitors alike,” said Bobby Polkey, Group Marketing Manager at the Feversham Arms Hotel.

“While Sundays have always been a busy day for us, this new menu with delicious new dining options will hopefully attract an even wider audience to the hotel and restaurant.

A recent study conducted by CV Library concluded that many professionals in Business are struggling to find a good balance between work and regular exercise. With many jobs at SME’s now involving sitting at a computer for much of the time, it is crucial to both the health of the company and its workforce that activeness in the workplace be encouraged.

What the Study Showed

The study, conducted in the United Kingdom, involved 1200 employees, the majority of which (81.5%), said that staying fit and active resulted in better performance at work. A significant 32%, however admitted that taking juggling regular exercise and a busy work life was a struggle. To put it this into perspective, sixteen million or so people in the United Kingdom, (that’s one quarter of the UK) do not exercise at all as reported in the HR Director.

Writing for the Huffington Post Stacia Pierce outlined the benefits employers enjoy from having a healthy workforce; fewer days off sick, better productivity and less stress are among the most significant.

The Importance of Physical Activity

Cycling to work is one way that employees and employers alike can help maintain fitness. Bike retailer Brompton are one of a raft of companies who are only too aware of this and that is part of the reason they developed their fold away bicycles that can be easily stored in the workplace. Other ways to promote physical fitness include encouraging employees to use the stairs as opposed to taking the elevator and offering standing desks is also an option.

Taking a Holistic Approach

Physical activity is widely recognised to be the best way of remaining healthy both inside and outside of the workplace, but there are a number of other factors to take into account. Pierce’s article also stresses the need to wash hands regularly and so actively discourage the spread of germs. She also highlights the benefits of taking regular breaks and while doing so, going outside for fresh air and sunshine.

Perhaps the most significant factor, after taking regular exercise, however, is the need for a healthy diet. Pierce advices “Plan out your meals for the week, including what you will eat for lunch. Then take time the night before to pack a healthy lunch for the next day. Make sure to include some lean protein, salad or fresh veggies, and fresh fruit for lasting energy with no afternoon slump.”

Combating Stress

While the above-mentioned factors will help promote a healthy mind as well as a healthy body, when it comes to stress SME’s may be well advised to take a belt and braces approach. Recreational areas where employees can relax and have some fun are becoming more common in the workplace and have been proved to help stress levels among employees.

SME’s then need to encourage active bodies and minds if a fit and health workforce is the goal.
