viewpoint

first_imgFor years people have been predicting the death of the high street. I very strongly object to the lack of support many councils give to small shops. It is a total reversal of the ethic that exists in the rest of Europe and much of Asia.But our lead story this week about the changing face of the UK baking industry at least indicates that the decline in bakery shops has halted. In fact there is a slight increase in the number of shops, if not manufacturers (pg 4).But are you a retailer first and a baker second or the other way around? Bob Cardona (pg 22) believes you have to face up to the reality of being a retailer first. I have very mixed feelings about this. Yes, your shop says so much about you and your goods. It should visually state if you care about fresh, trendy, hygienically produced goods. On the other hand, if I don’t enjoy the baked offering itself there is no way I would return.But thinking about your shop design is vitally important and I hope our ’facelift’ feature gives you some ideas. Apart from the baked goods themselves I always notice lighting. I love a well lit (not garish) shop or in-store. It makes for a highly inviting ambience.Nowadays the baked goods themselves do not just need to include American or Italian influences but often, like Morrisons, Polish, Greek and Jewish (pg 4). Do you know the current make-up of your community? Could you be missing out on sales? Word spreads fast in local communities and smaller bakers have flexibility.If you want to be aware of the latest bakery and equipment then do come and see us at Baker’s Fair North West (pg 14). Many bakers and confectioners have registered to attend, including several from Devon and Scotland, as well as those of you who live locally.And there will be live demonstrations of how to decorate wedding cakes from members of the renowned Richemont Club. This comprises passionate and talented confectioners who will be pleased to share their techniques and tips with show visitors.So do come and bring your colleagues. Help make it a great bakery day out. The British Baker team and I hope to see you at the Bolton Arena on Sunday October 14.last_img read more

Fans Want Moulin Rouge to Be the Next Ewan McGregor Film on Broadway!

first_img 1. Moulin Rouge—66% Cue dreamcasting! From the moment this Baz Luhrmann classic was released in 2001, we’ve been picturing what it would look like jumping from screen to stage. And you have too. Admit it. Strictly Ballroom, another Luhrmann flick, received the live treatment earlier this year in Sydney and is soon heading to Melbourne. Here’s hoping that Satine, Christian and the Diamond Dogs are next. And to that, we say come what may. 2. Down With Love—10% Welcome to the ‘60s? The pastiche love story has fabulous fashion, New York nostalgia and David Hyde Pierce: three components that tend to make a great musical comedy. And any excuse to get someone to play Judy Garland on Broadway, even if in just a cameo, is fine with us. Looking at you, Isabel Keating and Tracie Bennett. Ewan McGregor is finally heading to Broadway in The Real Thing, and we’re having an epic Ewan viewing party in anticipation! And, because we’re all about the Broadway, we’ve been dreaming of the star’s films on the stage. Last year, we were treated to Big Fish; what other Ewan McGregor films should light up the Great White Way? We asked, and you answered! The results are in, and here’s what you had to say. View Comments 3. Star Wars—7% John Williams has never composed a score for the stage, but how kriffing awesome would it be to hear his iconic songs on Broadway (and set to lyrics?!)? We’re picturing Julie Taymor-esque puppets on the Curious Incident set. Let’s just hope it’s better than this starship wreck.last_img read more

Gunners down Reds in style

first_img Hector Bellerin rolled in a superb curling effort, with Mesut Ozil’s free-kick and a blistering 20-yard strike from Alexis Sanchez effectively settling the contest before a fine late effort from Olivier Giroud sealed Arsenal’s seventh straight league victory. Liverpool netted a consolation penalty through captain Jordan Henderson – awarded for a foul on Sterling – but then saw Emre Can sent off for two yellow cards as a second successive defeat dealt a potentially fatal blow to their hopes of a top-four finish, Arsenal had made a blistering start. Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saved from Santi Cazorla and then was alert to divert a low shot from Aaron Ramsey, with Mamadou Sakho stabbing clear as Cazorla looked set for a tap-in. Protest groups from both sets of supporters had missed the opening 10 minutes, lobbying outside the ground at ticket prices in the wake of the new broadcast deal, while some of those inside also held banners against the rising cost of watching live Premier League football. Liverpool, without suspended skipper Steven Gerrard and centre-half Martin Skrtel, had weathered the early storm and looked a threat on the counter. Sterling should have opened the scoring in the 21st minute. Lazar Markovic was played into the right side of the Arsenal penalty area by Phillippe Coutinho, and he elected to square for Sterling. However, t he England forward had not anticipated the pass and could not apply the finishing touch as the ball ran away from him. Sterling was soon back on his feet, flashing a low, angled drive just wide from 20 yards. Press Association Arsenal kept up the pressure at the top of the Barclays Premier League as Liverpool were blown away 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium, where Reds contract rebel Raheem Sterling failed to make an impact. However, Arsenal took the lead via the unlikely source of Bellerin, who curled home a superb effort on 37 minutes. Ozil fed Ramsey on the right, and the Welshman in turn laid the ball off to the full-back. Spaniard Bellerin, 20, waltzed around Alberto Moreno before despatching a sublime low shot into the bottom left corner. Before Liverpool could regroup, they were 2-0 down. Ozil was tripped by Sakho just outside the penalty arc. The German playmaker – who came in for criticism following his trip to a Berlin nightclub after missing Arsenal’s win at Newcastle before the international break through illness – took the free-kick himself, curling the dead ball around the wall and past Mignolet. It got worse for the visitors just before the break when Sanchez rifled in a third. Ramsey played the ball up into the path of Sanchez. The Chile forward – a target for Liverpool before his £32million summer move to Arsenal – stepped inside Toure before blasting the ball up over Mignolet into the roof of the net. Liverpool made a change for the second half, with Daniel Sturridge replacing Markovic, the forward having pulled out of England duty during the international break through injury. Arsenal also soon were forced into a substitution as Laurent Koscielny hobbled off and Brazilian Gabriel Paulista came on. In the 55th minutes, Giroud’s bullet header was brilliantly tipped over by Mignolet, before Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina had to be alert to deflect a snapshot from Can behind at the other end. Ramsey appeared to have hurt his ankle, and was replaced by Mathieu Flamini on 62 minutes. With the hard work done, Arsenal took their foot off the gas, which saw Liverpool’s pressure result in a penalty when Bellerin tripped Sterling on 76 minutes. Henderson squeezed the spot-kick past Ospina into the bottom left corner, but momentum was lost when Can picked up his second yellow card with five minutes remaining following a foul on substitute Danny Welbeck. Cazorla’s curling 18-yard effort shaved the outside of the post, before Giroud cut inside to blast home a left-foot shot into the top corner to continue his fine scoring form. All the pre-match headlines had been over Sterling’s declaration he was “not a money-grabbing 20-year-old” despite rejecting Liverpool’s offer of a new deal, said to be worth some £100,000-a-week. However, the England forward blew his big chance to show why he is worth a pay rise, unable to convert a golden chance in the first half before Arsenal stuck three goals in the space of just eight minutes to settle matters. last_img read more
