RHM Foodservice (Marlow, Bucks) says filling a doughnut with lemon curd, then garnishing with caster sugar and cinnamon, is a simple way to make a spicy lemon doughnut. Robertson’s Fruit Preserves or Golden Shred Marmalade (available from RHM Foodservice) can be used for more traditional jam-filled doughnuts. McDougalls Complete Custard Mix can also be piped into doughnuts, while a doughnut cream twist can be made by deep-frying the doughnut mix in cream horn moulds then filling with whipped cream.
It’s not just office workers at the Christmas party that up their alcohol intake during the festive season. Baked goods are also partial to a shot or two of the hard stuff, with Christmas cake traditionally the thirstiest of them all. But alcohol can also be used to add flavour, extend shelf-life and, when using a well-known drinks brand, give a premium edge to many other bakery items, and not just at Christmas.For example, celebration cakes company Lightbody, based in Hamilton, Strathclyde, uses Grand Marnier in a range of luxury sponge cakes for Sainsbury’s that are listed all year round. “The main benefit of using Grand Marnier lies in its ability to deliver a smooth, rich flavour without the overpowering taste of alcohol,” says Vivienne Whip, Lightbody’s development manager. “Its subtle delivery provides a good flavour balance with the host product and its citrus notes work well with fruits or chocolate flavours. It helps cut through the more indulgent chocolate flavour to provide cleanness and balance. It definitely adds a premium touch and consumers relate to the quality appeal of the brand.”Michael Russell, NPD manager at Somerset-based Isleport Foods, manufacturers of chilled desserts, agrees: “A brand like Grand Marnier adds a backnote of inherent value to which consumers respond. They subconsciously associate it with a higher quality, premium product and are willing to pay more for it. We have developed products using both generic alcohol and branded alcohol and the latter generates greater sales.”Fruit cake and beyondUsing alcohol as an ingredient requires a certain amount of skill and knowledge, according to branded alcohol supplier Thomas Lowndes. For a rich fruit cake, for example, alcohol should not be included with the batter mix before baking because heat drives off the flavour. Best results are achieved by steeping the fruit in alcohol prior to adding to the batter.Beyond traditional applications, alcohol can also be added to everyday treats, such as biscuits, brownies and muffins, to give them a more luxurious positioning. Thomas Lowndes says biscuits work best with alcohol-flavoured centres or toppings that are enrobed with chocolate. An effective way of delivering alcohol flavour in brownies is via a high-fat layer pre-bake. For example, Grand Marnier can be marbled into a cream cheese layer and swirled through the batter. In this instance a high dosage of alcohol is required to deliver flavour. As with all products, the higher the fat content of the alcohol carrier, the better the delivery of alcohol flavour. Alternatively, alcohol can be added to a high fat frosting such as cream cheese or mascarpone for use after baking.The right doseAlcohol dosage levels vary depending on the end product and take into account the ingredients, base mix and fat content. A high dose of alcohol is commonly added to a carrying layer within a larger product to provide the ’hit’. This layer may be dosed at 5-6%, but the weight of the overall product brings the dosage level down to between 1-2%, according to Thomas Lowndes.Best results are achieved by using a higher strength alcohol by volume (ABV) product. Culinary alcohol is supplied as an extract, ie, over 50% ABV, compared to the standard drinking format at 40% ABV. Extracts retain the flavour of alcohol in a concentrated format and are more economical and efficient to use, ensuring the volume of liquid in a recipe is kept to a minimum. Extracts also give a better alcohol delivery and more concentrated flavour. They are less sweet than standard drinking products, allowing bakers greater flexibility to increase or decrease the amount of sugar within a recipe. nMethodTo make the chocolate ganacheBreak the chocolate into a bowl. Warm the cream in a pan and then pour over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted. Blend in the Grand Marnier extract and allow to chill in the fridge.To make the cakesGrease a 12-hole deep muffin tin. Sift the flour, cocoa and sugar into a large bowl, stir in the butter, milk, egg, Grand Marnier extract and rind.Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in a pre heated oven at 190ºC for 8-10 minutes or until just firm to touch. Cool.Cut a small opening in the top of each cake and with the end of a wooden spoon push down into the centre to create a cavity. Using a small nozzle on a piping bag, pipe chocolate ganache into the centre of each cake. Replace the top.To serve – warm the cake and serve with whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon or vanilla ice cream. l Recipe supplied by Thomas Lowndes
This Friday, August 11th, we get ready to celebrate Turkuaz drummer Michelangelo Carubba‘s third annual Birthday Bash. The show, which will take place at Brooklyn Bowl this time around, always boasts the incredible talented friends of Carubba from the greater jam and funk scene’s, along with impressive collaborations, sit-ins, and some choice song selection throughout the entire two set performance (purchase tickets here).As per tradition, Carubba has recruited some of his closest friends and musicians to celebrate his birthday in style, including members of Snarky Puppy, Trey Anastasio Band, Allen Stone, Turkuaz, and more. Those who’ve attended in years past are familiar with the fact that this night is notoriously one of the best of the year, so don’t miss out on what’s to be the best yet.L4LM’s own B.Getz caught up with the drummer to discuss how the birthday bash tradition began, the charitable aspect of the evening, and asking friends and other musicians that he has met over the past year to join in the festivities:“I basically put a bunch of calls to some of my favorite people to watch play, and they all said, ‘Yes.’ It started like that and has evolved into something I love. We give the proceeds to charity when we do it. What it’s become now is sort of a reflection of my year that just passed in terms of the relationships I’ve made, the relationships I’ve nurtured, the people that I’ve played with, the music that I’ve heard and enjoyed. Also, when it comes down to song selection, people might not know the actual ins and outs, but the songs I pick are definitely a reflection of what has been going on in my life.”EXCLUSIVE: Turkuaz’s Michelangelo Carubba Dishes On His Upcoming All-Star Birthday BashSome of those names on the confirmed lineup that will join Carubba are the just announced additions of Snarky Puppy/Ghost-Note drummer Robert “Sput” Searight and Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds bassist Josh Myers, along with previously announced TAB trumpeter and vocalist Jennifer Hartswick, Allen Stone keyboardist Steveland Swatkins, Snarky Puppy members Nate Werth, Justin Stanton, Mike Maher, and Chris Bullock. The list doesn’t stop there as fellow Turkuaz brothers and sisters Craig Brodhead, Shira Elias, and Sammi Garett, and singer-songwriters Ryan Montbleau and Chris Jacobs are also on tap to make some musical magic happen on this jubilant evening. Expect an additional surprise or two to make their way on stage for the celebration. This is an annual party that you will not want to miss!Tickets for the show are currently on-sale here.

22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Sundeep Kapur Sundeep has been assisting financial institutions with their omni-channel strategies – a more effective branch, a better online experience, & great consumer engagement. He is the author of an online … Web: www.emailyogi.com Details Most financial institutions are seriously considering significant big data initiatives. And these institutions are absolutely correct because through data comes understanding. We have to know more, so we can serve our members better. We need to monitor member activity, anticipate events, and keep serving to perfection. And please don’t forget, the word “monitor” needs to translate to being helpful versus being creepy.First, please allow me to define big data. “It is the ability to analyze lots of transactions, evaluate probabilities and possibilities, ascertain past preferences, include other factors and variables, and provide ideal solutions.”This year, I have had the opportunity to run workshops on big data at many credit union events and I want to highlight the importance of planning your big data strategy PRIOR to investing in a technology solution.Financial institutions need to go through a data transformation exercise with the intent of understanding the process, analyzing the available data, and measuring (step-by-step) success. Big data can make a significant impact – from initiatives like one-on-one onboarding, to general member wellbeing, to focused segmentation (hint – top three high impact initiatives).Successful financial institutions are leading because of their investment in strategic big data initiatives. Big data is what is guiding their continued success. Their achievements include tripling the number of products per consumer, 50% growth, and driving incredible internal efficiencies (pragmatic achievable results).An organization’s success with big data will be driven by the following factors:Clearly defined expectations (aligning objectives, capacity, capability)Avoiding data traps (mistakes)Following an ideal process (agile)Measuring success correctlyScaling from a pilot, to a launch, to sustaining continuous improvement (this is significant because it takes effort to scale and keep improving). So, who helped me with this list? I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my peers in our industry who have been a significant source of learning – Naveen Jain (Founder CULytics & former VP Analytics – First Tech FCU), Andre Iervolino (SVP Business Intelligence – Financial Partners CU), Debra Chaffins (Virtual Services Manager – ELGA CU), Steven Page (VP IT, Marketing, & Digital Banking – Safe America CU), Emily Nichols (VP Analytics – Grow Financial FCU), Mike Wiseman (Business Intelligence Analyst – CAP COM FCU).We are currently working on putting together a big data brainstorm via a webinar, do let me know if you would like to participate ([email protected]). Applying the Right ApproachYou need to start by conducting an analytics assessment which allows you to gauge the amount of data you need to drive success for your organization (start small – you do not need a lot). Once you have picked a few key projects, consider this tested and proven seven step process:Where does the data reside, and how do you get to it?Collect “manageable data” and create a data lake/storeModel to predict likely outcomesCreate queries to rationalize your dataExecute queries, evaluate, then automateDefine and measure successReview, adjust, and evolve Following this process will help you define a clearer path to success, provide you with higher ROI, and enhance your decision science practice. It will help you differentiate the good from the hype, and come up with specific initiatives that will drive positive results.High Impact Big Data Initiatives (Incredible Member Journeys) Here are some significant initiatives undertaken by financial institutions that could drive positive ROI for your organization:KPI Analysis/ReportingStaying in Touch – onboarding, loan boarding, re-boardingTimely PreapprovalsNet-Spend Model – customized loan offersBoosting card (debit & credit) adoption and usageAnticipating & Resolving DelinquenciesImproving the Lending Process – application, follow up, decisionsBranch Performance ReportingNext Best Conversation/OfferDriving Digital AdoptionATM Transaction AnalysisPreparing for CECL It is What Consumers WantConsumers expect personalized experiences. Big data terminology and projects have been making the rounds for a few years. Yet, there are many initiatives that have faced partial or no success while only a few businesses continue to leverage big data for immense improvement.Three things will drive your success:Having instant access to data, so you can use the data when you need itHaving data that is deciphered/intelligent, so you know what to do with the dataHaving data that is correct and personalized, so that you are sure
U.S. creditors of the French geophysical player CGG have accepted the company’s proposed restructuring plan under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy law as the company is working to reduce its massive debt. The French company informed on Monday that all creditors entitled to vote on the Chapter 11 plan proposed in the Chapter 11 cases started on June 14, 2017, in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York by CGG SA’s 14 main foreign, direct and indirect subsidiaries, each a borrower or guarantor in respect of CGG Group’s funded financial indebtedness, had accepted the plan overwhelmingly.Specifically, CGG said, all holders who have cast ballots in respect of the secured loans, and 97.14% in number and 97.96% in amount of those casting ballots in respect of the senior notes, voted in favor of the plan.Prior to the approval by the U.S. creditors, CGG in late July received an approval of the creditors involved in the French safeguard.At the end of the second quarter of 2017, CGG’s gross debt was $2.812 billion. Available cash was $315 million and group net debt was $2.497 billion. The company’s restructuring plan entails full conversion of unsecured debt into equity and raising up to $500 million of new money through a $125 million rights issue and the issuance of $375 million of new secured second lien senior notes with a six-year maturity.CGG CEO, Jean-Georges Malcor, explained in July that the plan would result in a $2 billion net debt reduction and would provide the necessary liquidity to support the company’s turnaround.Following this latest approval, the next step will be the approval of the financial restructuring plan at the shareholders’ Extraordinary General Meeting at the end of October.Offshore Energy Today Staff
NZ Herald 29 May 2013Central government politicians have called a roundtable meeting in Wellington tomorrow to look for ways to control street prostitution in South Auckland.The meeting, called by Parliament’s local government and environment committee, may lead to amending or abandoning a bill drafted by the former Manukau City Council in 2010 to give what is now the Auckland Council power to ban street sex workers from areas such as Hunters Corner and Manurewa.Committee chairwoman Nicky Wagner said MPs did not want to change the law unless that would solve the problem.“Simple legislation is a pretty blunt instrument,” she said.“This has been in the Parliament for a long time. It has come and gone back and forth with the creation of the Super City. We are very aware that it has taken a long time and we know people are concerned about it.“But there is no point in us hurrying up with an answer that doesn’t work in the long term.”http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10886902
