#WeLoveBread: The edible lunchbox

first_imgStreet-food business Bunnychow, which has recently opened a site in Soho, is encouraging people to “Love [their] Loaf”, as it prides its business around using artisan bread to contain hot fillings. In a campaign which it calls the ‘edible lunchbox’, Bunnychow uses four types of loaves, baked by the London Bakery, which are hollowed out to house its variety of fillings, such as curries and breakfasts.Atholl Milton, managing director of the business, said: “We have created the idea that is a portable, edible lunchbox. It works perfectly for food-on-the-go as you don’t need a take-away box. We did some tests and, once the lid is on the box, we found the filling stays warm for 15 and even 20 minutes.“We embrace the bread – really good bread is not bad.”The African street-food-style site has had a range of loaves designed for it especially by the London Bakery. The range includes white, cereal and seeded loaves, brioches and a gluten-free loaf.The business, which opened in October 2014, is slowly growing, and said it would aim to open two to three more sites around London by the end of summer, before looking to branch out.Milton also said he would be developing a range of sweet ‘Bunnys’, and had been testing using brioche filled with ice creams and sorbets.According to UK media, this is a new sort of ‘movement’ coming to bread, and Bunnychow is not the only place to use the concept.The Barge House café also uses a hollowed-out loaf to contain a range of breakfast options.Debbie Malynn at the café told the London Evening Standard that the use was even persuading anti-bread eaters to indulge in a loaf. She said: “Ninety per cent of guests who say they don’t eat bread find themselves devouring the whole thing. They also like the simplicity of only having two options – vegetarian or meat – although we are discussing black pudding and truffles making their way into the loaf. For the summer, a slight spice would be lovely, we think.”last_img read more

Kawhi Leonard texted former coach Nick Nurse to let him know free agency decision

first_imgKawhi Leonard doesn’t say much. He doesn’t really need to.When it came to letting his former coach Nick Nurse know of his decision during free agency, he stuck with that approach. The deal that happened close to midnight on the West Coast didn’t come as a complete shock to Nurse, MacMullan’s report noted.”Nurse knew all along that Leonard was potentially a one-year rental. When he saw Kawhi’s text, he cursed, then exhaled, then resumed waving his arms to ‘Purple Rain.’ No one, he reasoned, tried to wrest the Larry O’Brien trophy away from him upon hearing the news.”Leonard previously told ESPN he was “very close” to heading back to the Raptors — or signing with the Lakers — this summer. But, the 28-year-old forward ended up choosing the Clippers after they acquired his friend and fellow star Paul George in a trade with the Thunder.”When (the Clippers) presented the opportunity of playing with Paul (George), it was easy, it was a yes,” Leonard said. “I said let’s get it going.”Leonard entered free agency as one of the most sought after players. He was coming off one of the best postseason runs ever with the Raptors and averaged 30.5 points in the playoffs on his way to being named the Finals MVP.   Immediately after Leonard’s decision was finally made, both he and Nurse started to focus on their own upcoming seasons.”I saw Fred (VanVleet) and Pascal (Siakam) the day after (Kawhi left),” Nurse said. “I told them, ‘There are 20-plus shots up for grabs.’ They both grabbed their right shoulders and said, ‘We’re ready.'” Nurse, who was still celebrating the Raptors’ NBA championship in Las Vegas at a Prince tribute show, got a text from Leonard.”I’m going home,” it read, according to ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan.

Algae Toxin Detected at Lacey’s Long Lake

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Environmental HealthLong Lake is a popular swimming hole, located on Carpenter Road in Lacey.An algae bloom in Lacey’s Long Lake that’s been lurking for several weeks is starting to produce enough toxins to warrant a word of caution from county health officials. The most recent sample detected microcystin algae toxin levels at 20 micrograms per liter of water—14 micrograms above the state standard of 6 micrograms per liter for recreational water use. That means people and pets are advised to stay out of the water, and anglers are reminded that the safest bet in algae-prone waters is to catch and release.“We know that at this time of year there are only a few swimmers out there, but there are a few diehards, and many people allow their dogs to swim year round,” said Art Starry, Director of the county’s Environmental Health Division. “Our advice to folks is to stay out of waters with thick algae scum and not take the chance of getting sick.” Warning signs will be posted at public access points around Long Lake, including the city of Lacey’s Long Lake Park where the most recent water sample was taken. The lake will be monitored weekly until the algae bloom is over and the advisory can be lifted.While not all algae blooms are toxic, some algae can produce toxins that can harm the nervous system, the liver, the skin, and the stomach and intestines.Experts from the county’s Environmental Health Division recommend a few simple tips to help prevent illness from algae:·         Avoid swimming, wading, wind surfing and water-skiing in waters where algae blooms are present.·         Don’t drink untreated surface water.·         Keep pets and livestock out of waters with algae blooms.·         When fishing, catch-and-release is the safest practice. If you do eat your catch, clean any fish you catch thoroughly if you see algae blooms. Before eating, remove the internal organs, which may  contain harmful algae toxins.·         Avoid areas of scum when boating and clean your boat thoroughly.
