Jamie Oliver to launch new restaurant concept | Jamie Oliver Kitchen

Called Jamie Oliver Kitchen, the all-day dining concept will be rolled out all over the world, starting in Bali and Bangkok this month.

Coca-Cola System introduces KeelClip to its multipack cans

Coca-Cola and its strategic bottling partners Coca‑Cola HBC and Coca‑Cola European Partners will begin introducing KeelClip, a paperboard packaging solution, on its multipack cans across Europe. The move marks a first for the non-alcohol ready-to-drink industry and works towards the companies’ global goals for a World Without Waste, in which all packaging is collected, recycled and reused.

Long before Noma, there was Smørrebrød

Danes have been eating open-faced rye sandwiches for generations, but now chefs are injecting new Nordic cool into the old-school dish. The open-faced sandwich traditionally made with earthy Danish rugbrød, or rye bread, smeared with mayonnaise, and topped with fixings like pickled herring, boiled eggs with shrimp, or roast beef with fried onions and horseradish, has sustained the nation for generations. A cohort of young chefs have revived the venerable lunch staple, kicking off a wave of inventive, thought-provoking smørrebrød. More at the website of Eater.

The Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) is delighted to be working with the Rougeot group, winner of the public call for projects for the ‘Cité des vins et des Climats’ in Beaune, and with Emmanuelle Andreani, architect and founder of the [siz’-ix] agency. This partnership, under contract with the city of Beaune, will be working closely with the BIVB and the Association for the Climats of Bourgogne. The project is now taking shape and will be far from a traditional museum concept: The three cités in Beaune, Chablis, and Mâcon will be offering an unforgettable, unique experience. Now it is time to develop the content, themes, key messages, and mood, with the scenographers and museography team. The museum must be ready before the wine auction at the Hospice de Beaune 2021.
