I was round with friends the other evening and they asked me what was up? Puzzled, I raised my eyebrows in question. “Your email this week…” “was crap” I finished the sentence for them. Yes I’ve had a pretty trying two weeks, physically stretched. For example yesterday Andi and I delivered in almost two tons of Le Creuset, well to be precise it was 1.8 metric tons of the stuff and although I think I’m reasonably fit, it really took it out of me by the end of the day! But more importantly perhaps, I’m mentally at a low ebb for reasons that even I, won’t go into in this email.
So this week is little more than a place holder to let you know that you haven’t been unsubscribed by our daft software (Mailchimp) that takes people off our database at the drop of a hat. And in fact, ending on a positive note, we are looking at a new email system to replace Mailchimp system, that shouldn’t be afflicted by this problem. I shall report more on this in the new year!
A Seasonal offer
So as I’m short on time, I’ll indulge in a little plagiarism this time. A few weeks ago our Grunwerg Carving Boards arrived in two sizes and I talked about them in my email to you then. If you missed it this is what I said.
"Grunwerg Bamboo Carving Boards. Two sizes: £39.50 and £59.00
These Carving Boards have just arrived in stock and are nicely made and finished. They are made of Bamboo, which, in fact, is a very fast-growing grass, so pretty ecological. It’s hard, so is very durable, but soft enough to not blunt knife blades. I feel that the grooves for collecting juices, that are machined on the top surface, are perhaps unnecessarily deep, but maybe that’s just me?
It has a useful, removable, central spiked ring for holding the meat in one place as you carve. This you can store securely in place underneath, when not using it, or not using it as a carving board. A word about Bamboo. Sometimes, there are issues with it absorbing too much water and splitting results. This is easily avoided by not leaving it in the washing up bowl to soak, and of course don’t put it in the dishwasher. And when you drain it ALWAYS drain it on its long side(it’s the END grain that easily absorbs water). This applies to all wooden boards as well."
They come in two sizes:
40cm x 28cm (16”x 11”) RRP: £62.50
48cm x 36cm (19”x14”). RRP: £87.50
My offer for this weekend is a further £10 off either board.
I hope you have a pleasant and peaceful weekend.
