Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

Christmas Tips

Christmas Tips

Now that the season of overindulgence, and colds, is with us again here are a few tips to stay healthy:

1 Eat plenty of raw garlic, to stave off colds and other bugs

2 Eat plenty of fresh ginger, to ease bloating and to promote a healthy digestive system

3 Drink plenty of water to flush your kidneys

4 Drink hot toddies when you are feeling cold:

-whisky
-lemon juice
-cinnamon stick
-cloves
-sugar
-hot water

5 Make sure that your turkey is properly cooked; 25 minutes per pound at 180 (allow for the weight of the stuffing), and make sure that the juices run clear when the thickest part of the flesh around the legs is pierced.

Have a happy and enjoyable Christmas!

Croydon's Dirtiest "Restaurants"

Croydon's Dirtiest "Restaurants"

The Truffle of The Century

The Truffle of The Century

The massive truffle, weighing in at 3.3lb, was unearthed in Italy last month and sold for $330K at an auction held simultaneously in Macau, London and Florence.

The winning bid on Saturday night came from Macau casino mogul Stanley Ho, who bid by phone.
