Откройте для себя специи Индонезии с шеф-поваром Рэймондом Сиком

Урожай из сада шеф-повара

Свежий лук-шалот из сада

свежая морковь из сада шеф-повара

Нашим гостям это дает прекрасную возможность попробовать индонезийские продукты в нашей интерактивной Кулинарной пещере”

— Карим Таяч

NUSA DUA, BALI, INDONESIA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Страсть шеф-повара отеля The Ritz-Carlton, Bali Рэймонда Сика – это больше, чем просто еда. От качественных и свежих ингредиентов до элегантной подачи и обслуживания шеф-повар Рэймонд и его команда гарантируют, что гости будут довольны трапезой независимо от места и времени.

Специально для выращивания индонезийских специй, трав, овощей и фруктов шеф-повар Рэймонд и его команда создали сад на прекрасной территории курорта. Это доказывает, что в меню представлены самые свежие и сезонные местные ингредиенты.

Как отмечает Генеральный Директор отеля г-н Карим Таяч (Karim Tayach) – «Команда курорта выращивает в саду ароматные травы и множество специй, используемые в традиционной индонезийской кулинарии. Нашим гостям это дает прекрасную возможность попробовать индонезийские продукты в нашей интерактивной Кулинарной пещере».

Основная часть кулинарного мастер-класса «с рынка на стол» проводится под руководством шеф-повара в Кулинарной пещере фирменного индонезийского ресторана Bejana. Это захватывающий центр для гурманов, где гости откроют для себя богатое кулинарное наследие Индонезии и его сокровищницу трав и специй.

День может начинаться с экскурсии на знаменитый балийский рыбный рынок Кедонган, где шеф-повар выберет самые свежие продукты, объясняя плюсы и минусы покупки морепродуктов. Или со сбора ингредиентов в саду, в котором у гостей появляется прекрасная возможность исследовать все богатство природных ресурсов Индонезии.
Гости увидят популярные и необычные местные продукты, а также почувствуют множество манящих ароматов, таких как острый цитрусовый танг из листьев кафир-лайма, отлично сочетающийся с красным чили, помидорами и красным луком-шалот. Все это собирается для превращения в пряный балийский самбал под руководством шеф-повара. Узнайте у своего талантливого шеф-повара, как индонезийцы используют продукты, такие как пикантный лимонный базилик, куркуму и другие растения. Дети тоже получат возможность посетить сад шеф-повара в рамках ежедневного расписания занятий Детского клуба и узнать о традиционных травах и специях.

После сбора урожая в саду или поездки на рынок, гости возвращаются в Кулинарную пещеру с шеф-поваром, чтобы научиться готовить традиционные индонезийские блюда, открывая для себя кулинарные секреты местной кухни. Кульминацией станет праздничный ланч, на котором гости попробуют блюда, приготовленные своими руками.

셰프 Raymond Siek와 함께 인도네시아의 독특한 향신료를 만나보십시오

신선한 정원에서 수확

신선한 정원에서 신선한 샬롯

신선한 정원에서 신선한 당근

쉐프 가든은 대화식 요리 동굴에서 인도네시아 농산물을 탐험 할 수있는 매력적인 기회를 제공합니다.”

— 카림 타야치

NUSA DUA, BALI, INDONESIA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — 더 리츠칼튼 발리의 이그제큐티브 셰프 레이몬드 시크 (Raymond Siek)가 음식에 열정적이라는 것은 대단히 절제된 표현일 것입니다. 재료의 품질과 신선도에서 우아한 플레이팅과 서비스에 이르기까지 레이몬드와 그의 팀원들은 언제 어디서든 리조트 안에서 식사 시 최고의 경험을 보장합니다.

아름다운 경내에 셰프의 정원을 만들어 특별히 인도네시아 향신료, 허브, 야채 및 과일을 재배했습니다. 즉, 그의 메뉴는 신선한 재료와 제철 재료가 특징입니다.

총지배인 카림 타야치 (Karim Tayach)는 "향긋한 허브에서부터 전통적인 인도네시아 요리에 사용 된 무수히 많은 향신료에 이르기까지 리조트 팀은 셰프의 정원에서 그것을 기르는 작업을 하고 있습니다. 요리 팀에게 이것은 엄청나게 신선한 재료를 의미합니다. 한편, 손님들을 위해 우리는 쌍방향 컬리너리 케이브에서 인도네시아 농산물을 탐험 할 수 있는 매력적인 기회를 제공합니다." 라고 전합니다.

셰프 마데가 안내하는 농장에서 테이블까지 요리 수업의 주요 부분은 리조트의 대표적인 인도네시안 레스토랑이자 손님 여러분들이 인도네시아의 풍부한 음식 유산과 이 허브 및 향신료의 보물창고를 재미있고 몰입도가 높은 실제 경험을 통해 탐험할 수 있는 흥미 진진한 식도락 학습 센터인 브자나의 컬리너리 케이브에서 열립니다.  
하루의 시작은 재료를 모으는 것으로 시작됩니다. 발리의 유명한 끄동아난 수산 시장에 안내를 받으며 방문하여 셰프가 해산물을 살 때 사야 할 것과 사지 말아야 할 것을 설명하는 것을 들으며 가장 신선한 재료를 찾아보거나 또는 셰프의 정원에서 인도네시아 천연 재료의 풍부함을 탐험할 수 있습니다.

정원 방문은 항상 즐거우며 손님들은 인기 있고 독특한 지역 농산물을 볼 수 있을 뿐만 아니라 붉은색과 버드 아이 칠리, 토마토와 그리고 붉은 샬롯과 완벽하게 어울리는 강한 풍미를 가진 씨트러스 향의 카피르 라임 잎의 감귤류 냄새와 같은 매혹적인 향기를 흡수 할 수 있습니다. 이와 같은 것들은 모두 갓 요리사의 지도하에 매혹적인 발리 식 쌈발로 변할 수 있습니다. 탐험을 하면서 곁의 재능 있는 셰프에게서 인도네시아 사람들이 톡 쏘는 듯한 레몬 바질 잎과 같은 재료를 어떻게 사용 하는 지와 인도네시아의 가정에서 강황과 기타 식물들을 사용하는 다양한 방법을 배워보십시오.
아이들은 또한 리츠 키즈의 데일리 액티비티의 일환으로 요리사의 정원을 방문하고 전통 허브와 향신료에 대해 배울 수 있는 기회를 가질 것입니다.

정원에서 수확을 마치고 또는 시장에서 돌아온 후에는 컬리너리 케이브로 돌아와 셰프 마데(Made)와 함께 전통적인 인도네시아 요리를 만드는 법을 배우고 만들고 요리비법을 알아봅니다. 이 경험은 함께 둘러 앉아 그룹이 함께 만든 요리를 맛보며 기념하는 점심 식사로 끝이 납니다.

Antigua and Barbuda demonstrates strong tourism growth in 2018

It is incredibly encouraging for the tourism industry, and I would like to congratulate the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.”

— Minister of Tourism & Investment, Hon. Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez

ST. JOHN'S, ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Officials have reported that, for the first time in over fifteen years, Antigua and Barbuda has shown the strongest overall visitor arrivals by air from January to June (148,139), with significant increases in the key source markets for the destination: US, Canada, UK and Caribbean. This represents an overall +7% increase from 2017. The closest the destination previously came to these figures was in 2008 (146,935).

In particular, the month of June demonstrated significant increases: Canada has the greatest year-over-year increase with over 170%, followed by the US (14.35%), Caribbean (8.69%) and UK (8.27%). In addition, the destination is seeing an average 11.57% increase in sea arrivals (502,527 from January – May), and an average 8.6% growth in occupancy rates.

This growth is set to continue with significant increased airlift from North America in the Fall 2018, the opening of the destination’s newest 5-star resort and spa, Hodges Bay, in October 2018 as well as a full cruise schedule.
“We are excited by this positive momentum in growth of arrivals, both by cruise and air. It is incredibly encouraging for the tourism industry, and I would like to congratulate the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, the private sector, stakeholders and all our tourism partners on helping us reach these positive results for the first 6 months of the year. We will not rest on our laurels, and are striving for better. We will continue to invest in infrastructure and service and raise awareness of Antigua and Barbuda, to ensure we see consistent growth in arrivals,” said the Minister of Tourism and Investment, Honorable Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez.

“The first half of 2018 has shown incredible improvement, especially in our key source markets. We look forward to relentlessly working towards attracting new and returning visitors, improving our on-island tourism products as well as increasing access through our award-winning airport and port. We are doubling our airlift out of Miami, introducing new direct service out of New York and Canada, and welcoming new cruise ships to an already busy schedule. Combined with our aggressive marketing strategies, we are confident that we will continue to see remarkable growth for the second half of the year,” said the CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James.

In 2017, the islands reached a tourism milestone in welcoming over one million air and sea visitors. The arrival and occupancy figures for the first half of the year are positive indicators that Antigua and Barbuda is set for another record year in tourism.

Rental Crime Victim Respectfully Asks Judge Archie B Hayward Jr for Jury Trial

Court Minutes with Jury Demand

Court Minutes with Jury Demand

Enterprise National felony fraud victim pleads in open court to present crime scene evidence and felonious cover-up to peers in local Lee County court

This case has significant national implications for not only the citizens of the United States, but also for our global neighbors”

— David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' scam victim

FORT MYERS, FL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation's largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the jury trial demand from plaintiff and crime victim David Howe. The request was made in open court on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, following a pre-trial mediation conference.

In late 2016, Howe was the victim of a sophisticated and highly predatory 'ding and dent' scam resulting from a one-way rental originating at the Miami International Airport with a return the next day at SW Florida Fort Myers International Airport. Because of victim Howe's extensive work uncovering criminal behavior perpetrated against babies and children and other complex financial crimes, the suspicion of a predatory encounter resulted in a critical photo that was snapped at the crime scene and immediately sent to the manager on duty through the Verizon VTEXT server. That single photo was the basis of media coverage and a police investigation that abruptly halted the felony extortion demands while also exposing a cover-up fraught with negligence and lies.

“Last week I restated in open court and in the presence of tortfeastor’s counsel my desire to present the shocking crime scene evidence and unlawful corporate cover-up to a jury of my peers,” acknowledged David Howe, National Car Rental ‘ding and dent’ felony grand theft crime victim and survivor. “However, I remain practical about my chances and understand that this may be an extraordinary request for the court’s consideration.

“From my perspective, perhaps biased as a direct victim of an incredibly predatory ‘ding and dent’ scam, this case has significant national implications for not only the citizens of the United States, but also for our global neighbors who travel here and who are also exploited by a sophisticated system of what is effectively legal civil theft perpetrated with impunity and through a deliberate absence of uniform and predictable standards.

“And from my perspective, I sincerely believe that community-minded citizens – many of whom have undoubtedly been victimized by similar ‘ding and dent’ scams – should be the final arbitrators associated with this complex and highly-refined criminal predatory scheme. After all, it is they who must relentlessly lobby Congress to enact common-sense and reasonable regulations to put an end to an extortion scheme that has reportedly plagued Canada and is now impacting far too many here in the United States of America.

“Regardless, should Judge Hayward deny the motion for jury trial for any reason, then I will, of course, honor and respect the court’s decision. And I will nevertheless be equally prepared to present the remarkable crime evidence, including under-oath direct lies contained on a Lee Port Authority police report, photographic evidence of subsequent criminal property damage, and illegal destruction of video surveillance among others.

“Evidence that I’m certain will leave the Lee County Justice System in a daze and wondering how many other victims are forever harmed from a devastating and financially exploitive criminal encounter,” victim Howe concluded.

Downtown Dallas, Inc. Partners with ELERTS to Provide “See Say Now” Incident Reporting App to Citizens

ELERTS

App allows community residents to easily report safety and security concerns

The See Say Now app will empower users to take an active role in keeping Downtown clean and safe. I hope every resident and employee will take a moment to download the app and put it into action.”

— Kourtny Garrett, DDI’s President & CEO

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, July 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Downtown Dallas, Inc. (DDI) has partnered with ELERTS Corp, the leading provider of See Something Say Something mobile apps for incident reporting in airports, cities, and transit agencies, to provide the See Say Now app to businesses, residents, and employees in the Downtown Improvement District. The free app enables users to safely and securely communicate with DDI Safety Patrol and Clean Team for non-emergency issues, providing real-time information on concerns or issues, and is an extension of efforts from Downtown Dallas’ Safety Patrol and Clean Team.

With the See Say Now app, Downtown has a simple way to anonymously report safety or cleanliness concerns instantaneously through a smart phone. The See Say Now app empowers people to take an active role in keeping their community clean and safe by reporting what they see.

This could include:
• Quality of life concerns (panhandling, sleeping in public, etc.)
• Public intoxication or drug use
• Graffiti
• Trash can/litter issues

Users can send reports in 20 seconds or less. Downtown Safety Patrol dispatchers receive the reports on a web-based management console that allows two-way communication with app users. Incident reports may include photos, video, and a GPS map showing where the problem is occurring to enable a faster, more knowledgeable response from authorities. In a future update, ELERTS will integrate with the Downtown video surveillance network of 92 cameras, alerting authorities of which camera to view for more details on an incident or report.

“The See Say Now app will empower users to take an active role in keeping Downtown clean and safe,” said Kourtny Garrett, DDI’s President & CEO. “We have millions of eyes and ears working, living and visiting Downtown each year who can contribute to the safety, security, and culture of our city center. That’s a pretty powerful and exciting prospect that is now a reality. I hope every resident and employee will take a moment to download the app and put it into action.”

Empowering the public to quickly and anonymously report what they are seeing can make a big difference in public safety. ELERTS is already deployed at Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), as the DART Say Something mobile safety and security app. As a result, DDI and DART will be able to coordinate using ELERTS’ system, creating a robust safety communications network across the transit agency and the district.

"Speaking up – even anonymously – is a crucial part of improving public safety,” said Ed English, CEO of ELERTS. “Our daily work is focused on making it easy for communities to do so – the more eyes and ears keeping watch, the better. We are excited to see how the Dallas community will use the app to keep their community safer than ever.”

The See Say Now app is available in the iTunes Store and on Google Play. Once downloaded, Dallas users select Downtown Dallas Safety Patrol and Clean Team to begin reporting.

DDI is a member of The International Downtown Association (IDA), a 1,000 member world leader and champion for vital and livable urban centers. ELERTS is exhibiting at the 64th Annual IDA Conference and Tradeshow in San Antonio in October.

STAMFORD, CT, USA, July 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Celebrating 40 Years!

Annual Open House:

German School of Connecticut, Stamford on September 1st, 2018

The Stamford campus is having an Open House on Saturday, September 1st from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Rippowam Middle School located at 381 High Ridge Road in Stamford, CT. This event is open to the public. Registration information, teachers and school officials for new and continuing students will be available.

Nothing connects us to a country more than its language. Speaking German can help you strengthen that connection while enhancing travel, education and business horizons. Established in 1978, the German School of Connecticut (GSC) – the only professional German Saturday School in CT – provides a high-quality German education program for over 350 children and adults. At GSC, students at all levels learn German language.

As of July 1, 2008, Connecticut students studying World languages in community schools such as the German School of Connecticut (GSC) are eligible to receive high school foreign language credit for their studies. This is a real benefit to the students, who put in many hours of study to master reading, speaking and writing skills, as well as cultural information. Public Act No. 08-138. (http://www.cga.ct.gov/2008/ACT/PA/2008PA-00138-R00HB-05820-PA.htm)

The German School of Connecticut is a private, non-profit school with branches in Stamford and West Hartford, CT. The school was the first German language school in the United States to be selected by the State Department of the German Government to administer the official Sprachdiplom I and II examinations. These exams, which are a pre-requisite to university matriculation in Germany, test the equivalency of ten and twelve years of German language study. The German School of Connecticut receives support from the German government, as well as local businesses and donors. In 2009 the school became one of the 66 US Partner Schools with Germany. The school has a German-language library.
