National Doughnut Week: rewarding effort

first_imgLathams craft bakery in Southport, Lancashire, has been involved in National Doughnut Week, which this year runs from May 6 to 13, since the outset. Here, Chris Latham describes what his bakery gets up to during the week in order to raise money for The Children’s Trust charity – and drum up business in its four shops.“National Doughnut Week is always great fun and we never fail to see a huge boost in sales, both of doughnuts and other products. We always try to come up with a new and different doughnut every year – a limited-edition doughnut if you like – to sell during the week. “Last year, we created new varieties with chocolate and orange, rhubarb and custard, and toffee and apple – which proved to be huge sellers.“It was particularly rewarding to see all our staff getting so involved. Everyone would ask every single customer to buy a doughnut for charity – and the response was overwhelming. “The Children’s Trust is such a deserving cause – and it’s great for UK bakers to be able to help local children throughout the UK and really make a difference to their lives.Lathams was founded in 1967 and has remained a family business. The company now employs 50 staff across four bakery shops in Southport, Lancashire. • Top tip: Contact your local newspaper, tell them the dates of National Doughnut Week, what you are planning to do and emphasise that it is a fundraising event.

Menu development helps boost Greggs’ sales

first_imgHigh street bakery retailer Greggs has said its Balanced Choice and breakfast products have been popular over the summer months, as it released its third-quarter trading statement to 1 October.The company saw total sales rise by 5.6% for the 13-week period with company-managed shop like-for-like sales up by 2.8%.Greggs has now launched its autumn/winter menu, including new lower-calorie bakes and soups in the Balanced Choice range, along with new snacks with gluten-free options. These include chipotle pulled beef, fiery pulled chicken and onion bhaji burritos in its hot sandwich range. The burritos will go on sale across 1,200 Greggs stores nationwide and are priced at £2.75.Speaking at a press conference, chief executive Roger Whiteside said: “There appears to be a big demand in the market for Mexican-style products and our hot-eating sandwiches have been very popular. Burritos are the latest addition to that range. We are constantly on the look-out to see what is happening in the market and for those things that might have broader appeal.”He also revealed that soup had been growing year-on-year for the retailer and said that this also lent itself to the demand for healthier, lower-calorie products.Referring to breakfast, Whiteside said this was the fastest-growing consumption occasion for Greggs, but declined to reveal for what percentage of sales it now accounts. He said: “The breakfast phenomenon developing in the UK market has been going for about 15 years now. More and more people are becoming short of time in the morning and grabbing breakfast on the go. The value we offer at Greggs is outstanding; we have held our meal deal at £2 for two years now.”Talking about the company’s healthy Balanced Choice range, he revealed that this now accounts for 10% of Greggs’ sales and said he could easily see it taking a 20% share of sales in the not-too-distant future. “We are going to carry on in that direction as long as consumers want it,” he said. “I cannot see that trend disappearing. The trend to eat more healthily is here to stay.”In the year-to-date, the company has completed 145 shop refurbishments and said it was on-track to refurbish around 200 shops this year. It has also opened 103 new shops, including 41 franchised units, primarily in transport locations, and has closed 58 shops, giving it a shop total of 1,743 as at 4 October. For the year as a whole, it said it expects to open 140-150 shops and close around 70-80, a net increase of around 70 outlets.Greggs also noted that it was making good progress with its supply chain investment plan and the work to facilitate its new distribution centre in Enfield was now finished, with the site being brought into operation in the coming weeks. As a result, it will complete the previously announced closure of its bakery in Twickenham in November.However, the company did point to “general industry-wide cost pressures” in the next year, which Whiteside identified as both an end to supply outstripping demand, as well as ingredient commodity price rises. “We are quite unusual among retailers in that we make most of our own food, so that gives us sight of ingredient costs. Lots of those items – proteins, oils, fats, flour, dairy – are priced in dollars, so look as if they are going to be going up in price. We will be fighting hard to mitigate those cost pressures.”He added that the company’s rationale in terms of its investment programme was unchanged by the EU referendum, however, and that the company would wait to hear more certainty in regards to how the market will operate under the new regime.In September Greggs introduced a lower-calorie sourdough pasty to its range.last_img read more

Trey Anastasio Recalls Channeling Sly & The Family Stone For “Wolfman’s Brother” In Los Angeles [Videos]

first_imgOn Friday night, Trey Anastasio continued his late-2018 solo acoustic run with a performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA. Once again, Trey mused about the location of the day throughout the show, reminiscing about amusing experiences in the City of Angels including the one time Paris Hilton declined to sit next to him at a Hollywood party, how Phish recruited Rose Stone for Hoist, and more.The performance began with Phish‘s Undermind track “Secret Smile”, marking its first appearance in a Trey acoustic show since Rothbury Festival more than ten years ago. Next Anastasio offered up his only acoustic debut of the night, recent TAB original-turned-Phish jam vehicle “Set Your Soul Free”. The show continued with a number of go-to acoustic numbers like “Brian and Robert”, “The Inlaw Josie Wales”, and “Mountains In The Mist” before moving into the second “Free” of this young solo tour. A rare “Two Versions of Me” was up next, followed by a crowd-requested rendition of Trey/Amanda Green collaboration “Summer of ’89”.“Everything’s Right” came next, followed by fan-favorite Hoist ballad “If I Could”. The set continued from there with “Limb By Limb”, “Prince Caspian”, and “Till We Meet Again” before Trey gave a nod to Phish’s upcoming Riviera Maya destination event with the first acoustic “Mexican Cousin” of the tour. A pair of newer-vintage tunes came next in “Mercury” and “Rise/Come Together” before Trey took things back to 1996 with Bill Breathes ditty “Talk”, marking its first acoustic performance since 2011.Following “Talk”, Trey took a moment to reflect on a couple of Phish’s more bizarre early album covers and the way the images came about, including the awkward close-up of Mike Gordon‘s face on Billy Breathes and the horse in a harness on the cover of Hoist. On Hoist, Trey explained, the prevailing thought was, “This music is so powerful, and it feels like you could levitate, you know what I mean? It’s making me feel like my feet are leaving the ground—and there’s the line in ‘If I Could’ like ‘I wanna feel my feet leave the ground.’ We should do a cover where the most grounded of creature is, like, lifting, just slightly, into the air…what about a horse? And it’d just, like, floating into the air. … I don’t know what the album was gonna be called, but it was this concept. We got this cool photographer that was gonna do it, and they were like, ‘Where do we find… a horse?” [laughs]. And our friend Amy—our first festival was at Amy’s Farm, right?—she was hanging around. And she said, ‘I have a horse, I have this horse, Maggie, come to my farm. So we went to take this picture, we brought the photographer. And she had this contraption…that Maggie had been in before—no animals were harmed in this story [laughs]—but she’s trapped Maggie in this thing and, like, horribly lifted her up like ughh… her back was curving…It was, like, nothing, nothing like we had conceived at all [laughs]. It’s just, like, a horse in a horrible contraption.”“We imagined this beautiful, ethereal thing,” he continued, amused, “And then they took a picture… We did the same thing with Billy Breathes—it’s like, we were out of time, we need the cover tomorrow, it costs too much money, and that’s it, that’s the cover. We’re stuck with this thing. And then we didn’t have a name, so we’re like ‘eh, just call it Hoist,’ cus it’s going up like this [makes jerking motion]… Just, like, a nightmare [laughs].” He went on to talk about the album’s photo insert, which accentuates Jon Fishman‘s “private bits and pieces—so I thought, we should just put that on the cover and call it Hung Like A Horse.”Shifting his focus to another song from Hoist, “Wolfman’s Brother”, Trey mused, “This was my favorite part of making that album. On the outro of this tune—it’s a funky kind of tune and has these funky vocals—and we were like, ‘Man, I wonder if Rose Stone from Sly & The Family Stone still lives in L.A.?’ I will say that, when I was a kid, I used to look at  these Sly & The Family Stone covers, and it would be all these men and women and black and white and singing these songs like ‘Family Affair’, all together, and I always wanted to have a band like that. I actually ended up kind of modeling TAB after that. … Anyway, we wondered in the middle of this recording if Rose Stone, Sly’s sister, who sang all those songs was around… so we called, and she answered the phone and said she’d sing on the record. She came in and gave us, like, a soul lesson. It was an incredible thing to hear. If you go back and listen closely to the album version of this, you’ll hear the same person who sang [cups hands over the microphone and sings], ‘It’s a family affair.’ So you gotta imagine Sly’s sister.” The subsequent rendition of the song featured an appropriate “Family Affair” quote.With time left for a few more, Trey worked through “The Wedge” and “Blaze On”, which in turn segued into “Bathtub Gin”. Anastasio began to get up out of his seat as the song hit its final refrain, putting his foot up on his chair and encouraging the crowd to keep singing as he took his bow and headed off the stage. The crowd was still singing as he retook the stage for his encore, which featured renditions of “Waste”, Kasot Växt “cover” “Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.”, and upbeat Big Boat anthem “More”.You can watch a selection of crowd-shot videos from the performance below:View VideosTrey Talks About The Hoist Album Cover[Video: Mitch Dorf]“Set Your Soul Free”[Video: Paul Giza]“Everything’s Right”[Video: Paul Giza]“Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.”[Video: Paul Giza]“Bathtub Gin” > Encore (Partial)[Video: Mitch Dorf]Trey Anastasio’s solo acoustic tour continues tonight, Saturday, December 8th, with a performance at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA.

Fall vegetable garden

first_imgBy Terry KelleyUniversity of GeorgiaThe dog days of summer are beginning to give way to crisper fall air. But this doesn’t mean the gardening season is over. It’s still possible to grow crops well into the fall and even through the winter in parts of Georgia.Frost will eventually reap the last of the heat-loving crops such as squash, tomatoes and okra. But such crops as cabbage, turnips, mustard, radishes, beets, broccoli, carrots and even English peas can enjoy the cool days of autumn and early winter. Many of these can take a fairly stout frost and be OK.Cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, cauliflower and kohlrabi are all good crops for fall gardens. They’re best started from transplants but can be direct-seeded, too. If you seed them directly into the soil, keep the ground moist while it’s still hot to give them a good start.Keep them well watered if you transplant, too. The later you start, the smarter it becomes to transplant to cut the time to maturity. Establishing plants after late September may not yield good results. Most of these crops take from 70 to 80 days to mature in the fall.Most leafy greens can fit this pattern. Turnips and mustard are less tolerant to frosts and freezes than collards and kale. Don’t wait too late to plant them. They’re short-season crops and will mature in 45-60 days.All of these crops except cabbage and kohlrabi lend themselves to multiple harvests. You may be able to get several cuttings on one crop.English peas can’t stand a hard freeze. But there’s time to get in a crop before harsh weather. Sugar snap peas or edible pod peas will fit into this category, too. They usually require about 70 days to mature in the fall.Radishes will mature in about four weeks. Beets and Swiss chard, both hardy crops, mature in about 60 days. Plant these in time to harvest before hard freezes.Carrots and onions grow well in south Georgia during the winter. Neither can take severe temperatures, but light freezes and frosts do them no harm. Carrots can be seeded in September through October for harvest in the spring. Onions are usually transplanted in November for harvest in April and May.It will soon be time to clean off the remains of the summer garden. But get ready now for fall and winter. It can be a lot more fun to garden in the crisp fall air than in the gnat-infested heat of summer.last_img read more

What’s the hold up? Why some consumers don’t use payment options

first_img 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Concerns about security and a desire to pay the same old way are keeping some from making the most of payment options.According to recent findings from the Fiserv quarterly consumer trends survey, Expectations & Experiences: Consumer Payments, security, complacency and a general lack of interest are some of the most common barriers to using various payment options.The survey, conducted online by Harris Poll among 3,031 banking consumers in the U.S., found that while 75 percent of consumers use online banking to access their accounts, some consumers don’t take full advantage of services like mobile banking, person-to-person payments (P2P), e-bills and digital wallets.What’s behind the hesitation?Security Concerns Remain for Nonusers of Mobile; Decline Significantly for P2PSecurity concerns are by far the most common barrier to mobile banking use with 51 percent of nonusers saying they would be worried about the safety of accessing their financial information through mobile devices. Other concerns, such as preferring to use a computer (42 percent) and the screen not being large enough (22 percent), lag far behind. continue reading »last_img read more
