CHAMPAGNE DEUTZ The quiet player on the world stage

Within the UK Deutz Champagne is considered one of Champagnes ‘best kept secrets’, and have long been the Champagnes of personal choice for many well-known London sommeliers ‘in the know’. Deutz Brut Classic, the champagne that was served at the London's Favourite French Film Awards, can be found at Ocado, Oddbins and The Wine Society, while the portfolio of Vintages from Brut Vintage to William Deutz and the "de luxe Amour de Deutz", are available at independent retailers across London including Fortnum & Mason, Berry Bros & Rudd, Friarwood Fine Wines and Hedonism.
We highly recommend this astonishing champagne for your end of year celebrations.

The Brioche de Noel Pasquier arrives in London at last

In this festive season, there will be many food options to enjoy around the table but none like the Brioche de Noël. For some this product is known and a regular occurrence in households and for others this will be a new, interesting addition to their Christmas celebrations. The ring shape of the Brioche de Noël refers to the original name in French - ‘Couronne des Rois’- which translates to ‘Crown of Kings’. The Brioche de Noël brings a Provencal tradition to the UK. This tradition is filled with a series of elements that help create a fun family dessert. The tradition starts with inserting a charm* into the Brioche de Noël as for the Galette des Rois. The brioche is then sliced and the youngest member of the family is asked to go under the table to delegate portions to each family member

He has had further hits with The Old Fashioned Way and Yesterday When I Was Young.

How to avoid foot problems in children

As children get closer to adolescence, their feet can often be neglected. Parents often find it difficult to know whether signs or symptoms affecting their feet are temporary or could raise more serious issues. Badly cut toenails or ill-fitting shoes do not seem that dramatic, but the damage caused can be quite considerable.

BREXIT : Should I Stay or Should I Go - SAVE THE DATE

Monday 22 January from 9am to 9pm

Today,  because of all the noise created by the media and politicians, it can be difficult to find out about the reality of what is likely to happen to Europeans, to the economy, to business and to trading with the European Union. This leads to more uncertainty and anxiety. This event has been created with the aim of taking all the noise out and clarifying the real position. Thanks to our panels of experts, politicians and activists, our goal is to give attendees as much information as possible so that they can decide for themselves what it is the right course of action for them. Everyone is invited to attend a whole day of debates, talks and discussions about the future of Europeans and the impact of Brexit on business in the UK.
