The Butler Stick arrives in Amsterdam

Hello from Amsterdam! I thought you would all enjoy seeing our table for the market place with our Butler Sticks. We gave one to everyone at the convention last night. When the delegates came home from dinner they found one on their pillow! Each stick has instructions on how to use it, if you would like to see how to use a Butler Stick simply log onto

GREAT article from the New York Times, as many of you know this is one of my all time favourite newspapers and this food article on the proposed future of cooking and cookbooks is wonderful. What do you think?

What could be better than being 35,000 feet in the air, snuggled under a warm duvet and Julia Roberts on your private movie screen? Makes the 13.5 hour long flight home so much easier don't you think?! What are some of your favorite airplane movies to watch?

Airplane Bathrooms!

OK this might seem like a strange and weird posting, but I just wanted to share this FABULOUS airplane bathroom that I experienced yesterday on my flight home from Shanghai to Toronto (Air Canada flight 88) It turns out that all Boeing 777 long range aircraft in the Air Canada fleet have windows in the bathroom. Now this might not seem like a big deal, but I have to tell you I think this is FABULOUS, it takes away the claustrophobic feeling and it just makes the space such a nice place to be that you almost just want to sit there and look out the window and read a book. Anyway, if only all airplane bathrooms were like this.

Air Canada Flight 88

Yesterday while flying home on Air Canada flight 88 from Shanghai to Toronto (13.5 hours but who's counting!) I meet the fabulous Donna a flight attendant who not only was tons of fun, but she made my trip so much fun, that the flying time just flew by! Thank you to the fabulous Ms. Donna, and the entire Air Canada flight crew. You know the difference between a good flight and a bad flight is ALWAYS about the cabin crew!
