The Goring hotel has teamed up with a charity to launch a hotel school to teach homeless people the basics of hospitality and help them into full-time work. The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia, the five-red-AA-star, 69-bedroom hotel, already launched the Hotel School in 2017 in partnership with its neighbour, the Passage Homeless Resource Centre. They’re right next door to one another so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve finally joined forces to create Hotel School.

We have seen another initiative in the Netherlands in which an entrepreneur did start his own education project and with all the problems of finding great members for a hospitality team these initiatives are a source of  inspiration to other hospitality entrepreneurs. lees verder

Tomasu Soy Sauce | The only micro brewed soy sauce in Europe

12-4-2018

Tomasu Soy Sauce is the only micro brewed soy sauce in Europe and finds its origin in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Its founder, Thomas Uljee, born and raised in Rotterdam, taught himself the art of soy sauce brewing by travelling the world, researching online and spending 3 years of trial and error by working closely together with his brewing-partner-in-crime Piet van Westen. Respecting centuries-old Japanese and Dutch traditions, the soy sauce is fermented and aged, for a minimum of 24 months, in 25- to 50-year-old whisky barrels specially sourced from Scotland’s finest distilleries. Using these barrels as an aging vessel the taste is rather rich and one-of-a-kind. lees verder

For years Sherry was struggling with an old-fashioned image, but Manzanilla lets you rediscover sherry. Manzanilla is one of the many different types of sherry and because of the dry, fresh and delicate taste a perfect ‘entry-sherry’. All of a sudden all eyes are focused on this ‘lady’ among the sherry wines, thanks to the striking new brand Aurora. Aurora is produced by the Spanish winemaker Paco Yuste and stands out for the handy size and the beautiful label. The portrait on this manzanilla bottle is from Aurora Ambrosse Lacave.
