Hot Drinks for the Winter Months


postWinter is upon us and we are thirsty all the time. What do we drink on a cold winter’s day? Some drink coffee, some tea and then there are some who prefer hot chocolate, cocoa, Milo or hot custard.

It is indeed important to stock upon the right hot drinking products this winter. Many people prefer to drink tea on cold winter days, of which there are many varieties. As a wholesaler and retailer it’s important to stock up on all kinds of teas like Joko, Trinco, Five roses, Eleven o’clock, Glen and Fresh Pak. Some of these teas are available in rooibos and green tea flavours. All these teas come in packs of twenties, forties, eighties and hundreds. Some have tags and others are tagless tea bags. Some say it’s only the much older people that love to drink tea but that remains untrue. Most teas are preferred by all ages including Rooibos tea for babies.

Gluten-Free Is Danger-Free!


postIs one of your family members infected with celiac disease or any gluten intolerance? Are you fond of eating foods rich in gluten protein? If both stands are affirmative, then there has got to be a way to avoid cross-contamination. Cross-contamination happens when your gluten-containing products are being mixed in storage with the ones which contain zero gluten additives. And this will not help but harm.

Be aware of cross-contamination because sanitation should never be lost when we talk about this. Adhering to what is safe should perhaps go first before everything.

Just as your family member goes on a zero gluten diet, you have to keep them away from your fondness. These are the safety tips for your preparation, cooking customs, and storage in the gluten and the gluten-free foods you bought.

o Use airtight containers to store your gluten-free foods. Sealed containers help to avoid contact with foods rich in gluten. Air might be a medium for exposure of these.

o Be sure to wash all your utensils well. It is best to do this before and after your usage.


Typical Cuisine Served at a Spanish Restaurant

An authentic Spanish restaurant can provide you with a dining experience that you will remember for a long time. If you are unfamiliar with the cuisine, learn about the typical foods before you go so you are prepared to make the right menu choices.


Before delving into your meal, you might experiment with a few tapas. Tapas are appetizers or snacks available for order before the main meal. In Spain where residents often eat their meal late in the evening, people may snack on tapas between the time they get off work and the time they are ready for their meal. They may feature seafood such as anchovies or squid. Olives and chilies are a common ingredient. For seasonings, expect garlic, paprika, cumin, saffron, salt, and pepper.

Tamales, while not native of Spain, are a popular menu item. Tamales usually have meat tucked inside the flavorful bundles. Paella features rice, seasoned with numerous

Good planning means asking as many questions upfront as is prudent. Better that you know limitations in advance – and perhaps negotiate a better package.

Event planners, be it for corporate or family events, have much to think about: Who is coming, what is the event about, how can it be memorable or motivate attendees to do something?

In recent years, at least one question has gotten bigger: Where can we hold the event? In the past, that often had to do with the availability of an on-site kitchen.All good!

But even with tacos served from a mobile kitchen – most mobile taco caterers have several, such that an event serving a large crowd might have stations set up around the periphery – there are questions that should be asked beyond menu and price. Here is a short list:

1. What kinds of healthy taco choices do you provide?

Tacos can be a complete meal, one that features a good mix of protein, carbs and fiber, with lots of quality nutrients within. Be sure to accommodate gluten-free guests.

2. What can you tell me about the freshness of your ingredients?

Ceylon Spices

However, this did not stop even after the British took over the gardens meant for planting spices. They cultivated pepper and cinnamon. From these, Ceylon spices came into being. They are now currently the best-selling type of spices across the world.

True Ceylon Cinnamon

This is one of the most appealing spices available in the market. Ceylon cinnamon is the dried bark of Cinnamonum zealanicum tree. It is the best all over the world.
