This journal belongs to the home. The current owners have custodianship of it and the pleasure of completing one chapter. When they leave the journal is left as a gift to the new owners.

The journal’s purpose is to provide a tangible link between the current owners and those who have previously made the house their home—giving a peek into its history, and a glimpse into the stories of those who have loved the house in their turn.

The journal contains chapters for each owner to complete. They contain space for:

  • Your family name
  • The dates you moved in and out
  • Why you moved here
  • Improvements or changes you made to the house and garden
  • The thing you liked best about living here
  • Best memories and memorable events
  • Why you are leaving the house
  • Where you are moving to
  • Plenty of blank pages for photographs and keepsakes.

The journal is a perfect gift for house warmings and weddings, and would be equally appreciated as a birthday or Christmas present—for someone else or yourself.

‘The Apprentice Chef’ gives a glimpse into life as an apprentice working in a famous London Michelin star restaurant……

“…The thing about working in a kitchen is that you have to be an adrenalin junkie and a sucker for punishment. There is just no other reason for working in one. If you want to be a chef because you like to cook, then do so at home because working in a professional kitchen you will soon grow out of it. Working in a professional kitchen is comparable to working on the stock market floor or as an air traffic controller, the stress is unbelievable. It is little wonder that most Chefs who choose to stay at the battle front of the kitchen itself and not go into management either have severe personality disorders or abuse copious amounts of illegal substances. You can only do it well and stay sane for a relatively short period of time….”

A must read for any chef, those interested in cuisine, or interested in the world of professional cooking.
