The effervescence of the bubbles is certainly a great pleasure for those who pop the bottle open, as has become the custom for all commemorative occasions. The sparkling wine made in Champagne, France has gained prominence because of the distinct nature of the winemaking conditions, which set the products made here apart from those produced elsewhere across the globe.
The leading wine store of each city stocks Armand de Brignac Brut “Ace Of Spade” 750ML, which is simply a wondrous drink. It is a complex & full bodied beverage that is well known for its racy characteristics of fruit, sumptuousness and fresh & lively bouquet.

Those who buy wine online from the portals of reputed stores sing praises of its fleshy fruit pit & delicate citrusy flavors. Along with these, the long, smoky, gentle, sweet finish (which leaves hints of orange peel & flowers on the palate) also garners immense praise.
The Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs 750ml is also an excellent champagne that each & every prominent wine retailer stocks. It is well known for being coming down smoothly, along with a surprisingly wonderful complexity.
The floral and slightly citrusy aromas delight the drinkers, while the flavors of tropical fruits (pineapple and honey melon) that are balanced by minerality of this champagne enchant their palate.

The British are coming! Well actually a few are already here in Indianapolis and one in particular is on a mission to celebrate, rediscover and share the history and food of the Traditional Old English Tea Party, using traditional recipes and local ingredients.
Tina Jesson of Tinas Traditional Old English Kitchen, came up with the idea after moving to Indianapolis from the Derbyshire region of England 3 years ago, when her husband was relocated to Indianapolis with Rolls Royce. Finding that the people she met in Indianapolis were real foodies and appreciated some of her unusually English baked goods, jams and chutneys, she is now offering Tea Parties in homes and offices around the city.
Tina comes from a long line of accomplished home cooks in England and was lucky enough to learn to cook at a young age by her Great Grandmother, who was born in 1899 (when Queen Vitoria was still on the thrown of England) and worked as a kitchen maid in Bradley Hall, owned at the time by Major Clues.
Her Grandmother, who was a Wren in WW2, was great at preserves, jams and chutneys and her mother was the baker of the family, making great pastry. Tina grow up in a house of 4 females spanning across 4 generations and many of the old recipes have been passed down.
Tina loves making these recipes and sharing the goodies with like minded people who have a passion for from scratch wholesome local food and the history of how the recipes came in to being or how they got their names. Such as Spotted Dick named after Dick Turpin, the notorious highway man; Bakewell Tart, from the town of Bakewell, only miles from where Tina was born and raised and Traditional Christmas Cake with its moist fruit, homemade marzipan and Royal icing a recipe brought to England from Germany when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert. Tina also produces a range of chutneys, like green tomato chutney (Grandmas special recipe) which is cooked liked a jam but has chillies and vinegar and goes great with strong hard cheese or ham on the bone.
Youll find Tinas Traditional Old English Kitchen at local farmers markets including Traders Point Creamery, where her chutney goes very well with their farm produced cheeses. You can call to place your orders for the holiday season and gift baskets are also available.

Amaretto flavored tea is great for experiencing the smooth almond taste connected with amaretto but without the effects of the alcohol. It has a velvety feel in the mouth and makes a great after dinner tea. This amber-red liqueur is enjoyable in all its many forms including tea drinks.
If you enjoy learning about the history of things, you might find one story of how amaretto came about a little interesting.
Amaretto means a little bitter in Italian. Now, would you believe the first bottle of amaretto made was because of a love affair? It’s certainly colorful and as rumors go, entertaining. The painter, Bernardino Luini, who created the Madonna fresco in the Santa Maria delle Grazie Church located in Saronno, Italy, received the handmade gift from the innkeeper. Not unusual, except that the innkeeper’s romantic interest, which inspired the creation of the liqueur, had grown while posing as a model for Bernardino.
You might also be interested to know that the almond flavor associated with amaretto comes from apricot stones, or pits. The original drink was probably made from grape brandy in which apricot stones were left to soak, or infuse. Accidents have been the catalyst for many of the beautiful and functional things we have today, but whether amaretto came about by accident, or intentional, we have no idea.
Amaretto flavored tea is made in different forms. You can, for instance, add the syrup directly to the teapot, for an ultra-fresh and delicious tea. You can also buy green and black teas with amaretto flavoring. This comes in handy if you sometimes like to disguise the grassy flavor of green tea. We like to mix things up sometimes so we frequently buy syrups to add flavors to our usual teas.
Being creative with your tea is a lot of fun and drinking amaretto flavored tea is a great new alternative to the usual tastes and flavors of traditional teas. Make sure to try this tea and remember that teas like this can be enjoyed year around, and any time of day.

Police sergeant Merryll Manning is on vacation on an island in the Florida Keys for a Murder Mystery weekend. The plan is to solve the mystery and win a cash prize of $5,000.00. Easier said than done. Merry has his teenage-looking girlfriend Susan Ford along for the trip. Susan isn’t above using her sexuality to keep Merryll flustered and under her thumb.
Merryll Manning: Trapped On Mystery Island by John Howard Reid was published more than twenty years ago in Australia. The first installment of the twelve part Merryll Mysteries made its American debut in the spring of 2008.
The game players are an eclectic group including a priest, lawyer, novelist, as well as several actors who may or may not be playing parts in the game. Merryll begins mingling with the players as only he can. His abrasive, eccentric style quickly puts him at odds with several of the gamers. Merry continuously aggravates the priest with religious debates; while Susan’s sexy and spunky charms push and pull Merryll’s concentration from the game.
Soon the first victim of the game falls as Merryll has predicted. The others have a problem with a policeman’s unfair advantage in the game. Others believe Susan is under-age and doubt Manning is a cop at all.
When blood is found, Merryll traces it to a real murder victim. The horrific bloody murder scene has a profound affect on Merryll. Another gamer disappears during a smoke break. With no way to contact the mainland, to leave the island, or to inform the police, Merryll takes over the investigation.
Author John Howard Reid has an undeniable skill for keeping the reader guessing who-dun-it. Reid points the finger of guilt, through Merryll, at many of the characters. The reader keeps turning pages to see who Merryll will infuriate next with his accusations and taunts. Tension, mistrust, suspense, and a quick pace keep the reader captivated to the final page.
Don’t mistake this as another self-published vanity project. John Howard Reid is a talented, experienced writer with more than 70 books to his credit. His dialogue is brilliant in the back-and-forth banter between Merryll and the priest, and Merryll and the novelist. He paints scenes so well that you expect to see Merryll and his suspect burst into your living room.
Books three and four in the series are scheduled for release in 2010 with Merryll Manning: Beachfront Holiday set for release in June. Merryll Manning is a wonderful, old-fashioned style mystery series. Start here with Trapped on Mystery Island and you’ll be hooked. Highly Recommended.

Whether savoring a serving of tea at high tea or afternoon tea, English tea can be an incredibly delightful addition to the party or on some occasions even the party itself. Some people may believe that these two occasions are one and the same, but in fact, high tea and afternoon tea ceremonies are most definitely not the same thing and stem from completely different origins.
In this article the differences between each type of traditional English tea ceremony are thoroughly outlined and discussed in regards to their origin, traditions, typical time of occasion and original purposes.
The whole tradition of the English tea ceremony stems back to nineteenth century England and was started by the Duchess of Bedford. These occasions were the first types of traditional afternoon English tea ceremonies that actually began as an in-between occasion when lunch had passed but dinner still seemed a long way off, and there was a need for something in between.
The array of tea was usually served with a miniature meal of breads and butter, and if not for this afternoon meal, the Duchess and her high society lady friends would have had to wait until well after dark for their next meal and this little feast filled that hungry space in between. Since then and now to this day, the afternoon English tea ceremony has truly progressed to include many more foods such as scones and other pastries, but the timing of the occasion has steadfastly remained much the same.
The occasion of high tea is often referred to as the same event as the afternoon English tea ceremony, however they are quite different indeed. Perhaps high tea sounds more proper, but this traditional English tea ceremony is actually the one that was practiced and was originated by the common folk in nineteenth century England.
Afternoon tea was already in full swing, but the poorer people also needed a tradition to surround their tea time. Instead of an earlier scheduled tea time, however, their tea time was scheduled to occur closer to dinner or even in place of dinner. Such was the actual origin of the ceremony, in fact.
This English tea tradition was partially established in order to take the place of the boring and usual meal with an occasion of celebration and enjoyment of tea, and unlike the afternoon tea of the rich, this occasion took place around dusk and included much more filling foods like meat, eggs, cheese and the like. Also, both sexes were included in this meal, unlike the afternoon tea ceremony.
