Hollands Pies has launched its new cheese and onion pie recipe, using mature cheese from the award-winning Dew Lay Creamery in Garstang. The new recipe has been developed using Holland’s ’Pie Panel’ of amateur pie tasters. The manufacturer says the pie reflects consumers’ growing desire for local provenance, with the new cheese being sourced from a creamery 30 miles from the pie factory.The pie comes both chilled and frozen and has been approved by the Vegetarian Society.The company says this re-launch is the first of many and its range is undergoing a revamp.”With the help of our Pie Panel we’ve been reviewing the quality of all of our products and we’ve been listening carefully to our customers.”We’ve revisited all the things people have traditionally loved about our pies and looked to retain and, where necessary, rediscover that love,” explained Neil Court-Johnston, managing director of Holland’s.www.hollandspies.co.uk
By Max Jenvey of Oxxygen Marketing Partnership, a strategic business firm, specialising in the bakery, foodservice and convenience retail sectorsDid you know that a staggering 31% of bakery product customers would value nutrition information (him! Food-to-go Report). But perhaps it’s not so surprising really, as your consumers continue to demand healthier snacks and food while on the move. In the same him! report we also found out that 21% of customers are purchasing bakery products.With the focus very much on health these days, even the NHS is constantly asking people to consume their 5-a-day fruit or vegetables. But many people find that challenge quite difficult to fulfil, considering their busy schedules especially when they are working late and travelling often. So how can bakery retailers make it easier for their customers to achieve, thereby increasing sales and customer satisfaction? It’s simple: give them what they want by adding the right ingredients to your products and clearly communicating the health benefits.One good way to support customers and their healthier lifestyles would be to offer the ’Easy 3 of your 5-a-day’. Why not consider stocking unsweetened 100% fruit or vegetable juice; dried fruit, such as currants, dates, sultanas and figs; as well as whole fruit like apples, bananas and oranges which are easily consumed on the move.Keep it interesting and change your meal deals regularly. Always offer two different choices. For instance: Meal deal 1 a fresh orange juice, a tomato avocado sandwich, and a pack of dried fruit; Meal deal 2 a salad to go with a wholegrain bagel, a banana/apple/pear and a smoothie. And remember that blended vegetable soups are always a hit with a seeded roll.Help your customers see your offer as the perfect solution to their healthier dietary needs. Design a new pastry with a delicious fresh fruit filling, for example. Or re-engineer your flapjacks and cereal bars with wholegrain goodness and dried fruit; think antioxidants and stuff those traybakes full of cranberries, nuts and honey.Most importantly, clearly communicate your healthier options. If you have a gym nearby, arrange a tasting session with some of the instructors, to create a perfect pre- or post-workout snack.So set your bakery apart and become the number one healthy destination in your area for food-on-the go.

Over the past year, I’ve worked as Live For Live Music’s videographer, traveling around the country to film and share videos of countless concerts. As 2017 winds to an end, here is the second part of a two-part series dedicated to collecting my favorite clips from the past twelve months. Also, in 2018, I will be focusing more of my energies on raising money for children stuck in months-long hospital visits. Click here for more information and to donate. Enjoy the videos below!A Year In Review: Rex-A-Vision 2017 Video Wrap-Up (Part 1)The Russ Liquid Test | New Tune | 6/2/17 | Purple Hatter’s BallThis video from the Russ Liquid Test stands out, as the balance between the electronica and on-the-spot live instrumentation is excellent.Clusterpluck All-Stars | “Midnight Rider-Amos Moses-Sailing Shoes-Holy Ghost Building” | 6/23/17 | ClusterpluckLeftover Salmon‘s Drew Emmitt and the mayor of the “FestiVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL” land himself, Vince Herman, know how to organize a pick-off. This is what happens when you add Larry and Jenny Keel, the entire Jon Stickley Trio, and the Rev. Jeff Mosier to the mix!moe. | “The Chain” | 6/30/17 | moe.down Music FestivalAfter a two-year hiatus, we were all overjoyed to see the return of the moe.down music festival and the promise of three straight nights of long sets and guest stars. The video version of Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain” below saw Hayley Jane and Ryan Montbleau joining the band for an impassioned take on the 70’s classic.moe. | “We Are famoe.ly” | 7/1/17 | moe.down Music Festivalmoe.down’s traditional day set, the annual “Kids Parade,” and the subsequent takeover of the stage is one of the best moe.ments each festival. This year, bassist Rob Derhak’s daughter led on vocals and charmed even the hardest of hearts with this disco-era fave!Elephant Revival | “Have A Cigar” | 7/14/17 | Northwest String SummitThis clip of Elephant Revival covering Pink Floyd‘s “Have A Cigar” is the result of a variety of botched attempts to film the band doing their hushed and reverent version of the tune finally working out.Yonder Mountain String Band | “Echoes” | 7/15/17 | Northwest String SummitFor close to two decades now, Yonder Mountain String Band has hosted the Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout just outside Portland, Oregon. The band always pulls out something special for the crowd and this year was no exception, thanks to their nearly spot-on cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Echoes.”Todd Snider | “The Ballad Of The Kingsman Trio” | 7/16/17 | Northwest String SummitA native to the region, Todd Snider brought his idiosyncratic blend of song and wryly observational tall tale to the Northwest String Summit. He won hearts and minds of new fans and plastered appreciative smiles on the faces of those already hip to his music with this iconic tale of government hysteria at its finest.Sideboob | “Straight Up” | 7/13/17 | Northwest String SummitThe ladies of the Shook Twins teamed with Allie Kral of Yonder and seemingly every other lady on the Northwest String Summit’s lineup for a GIRL! power tribute to 90’s classics. The sing-a-longs alone made this one of the best sets of the weekend!Greensky Bluegrass with Sam Bush | “The Four-Bringing In the Georgia Mail” | 8/18/17 | HoxeyvilleHoxeyville has sort of become, by default, a Greensky festival, and watching them play host and welcome heroes like Sam Bush onstage makes it all the better. The delight shown by Anders Beck as he trades licks with Sam Bush simply can’t be faked.Greensky Bluegrass with Larry Keel | “Rain Jam” | 8/18/17 | HoxeyvilleI filmed this during a raging storm that caused Greensky Bluegrass’ Larry Keel Hoxeyville sit-in to go from a full-band electric affair to a guitars-only defiance of the elements.Porter, Skerik & Dillon | “Is It Nature’s Rock N’ Roll?-Ain’t No Sunshine” | 9/23/17 | Brooklyn Comes AliveWhen you put together the funkiest man alive, George Porter Jr., and the improvisational funk madmen, Mike Dillon and Skerik, you get a once-in-a-lifetime blend of in-the-moment music that speaks to many folks’ cores. Turn it up, and let these guys speak truths you haven’t heard.Herbie Hancock Tribute | “Hang Up Your Hangups” | 9/24/17 | Brooklyn Comes AliveOne of the coolest aspects of the Brooklyn Comes Alive festival is the mix-and-match nature of the event. Rather than booking bands, they book artists, often pairing them with other players they generally wouldn’t or haven’t stood alongside in the past. To help promote some sort of structure, they often use legendary artists to serve as a musical common cause and to guide the set . With that in mind, check out the action on this Herbie Hancock jam from BCA.Roosevelt Collier | “Amazing Grace-Churchin’” | 9/23/17 | Brooklyn Comes AliveThe death of Charles Bradley cast a dark cloud over the Brooklyn Comes Alive Festival—at least until sacred steel wizard Roosevelt Collier got onstage and took the crowd to church. Mixing “Amazing Grace “alongside more traditional hymns is a specialty of Collier’s, and he showed a dexterity of the body and spirit that will serve him well on his path to true greatness.Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn | “BanjoMingle.com” | 10/12/17 | Roots RevivalI had to include this hilarious interaction between the husband-and-wife banjo (and apparently comedy) duo of Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn. The music they made was, as always, heartfelt and lush. But the silliness and execution they showed on their impromptu banjo dating site testimonial was as good as anything they did with their instruments.The Wood Brothers | “River Takes The Town” | 10/14/17 | Roots RevivalFor this Wood Brothers tune, the band tipped me off to make sure to be on time and recording early, as this was a brand-new song that they wanted people to be able to hear after the show!Col. Bruce Hampton Tribute | “I’m So Glad” | 10/15/17 | Roots RevivalThe second and final Col Bruce Hampton tribute on the list comes from the closing-day Suwannee Roots Revival set filled with his friends and past bandmates. They closed down they proceedings with a fittingly time Col Bruce classic, a rollicking cover of “I’m So Glad” that had everyone in the Spirit Of The Suwannee either fighting back tears or getting down and dirty on the dance floor. Heck, I’m pretty sure if you look close enough you can see folks doing both.Umphrey’s McGee | “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” | 10/26/17 | HulaweenIn a year of stellar Pink Floyd covers, this Umphrey’s McGee rendition of “Shine On” will go down as the heaviest by far. The band literally shook the land—though the EDM act on the main stage might have had something to do with that…Ween | “Take Me Away” | 10/30/17 | HulaweenWeen might not be for everybody, but I bet they have at least one song everyone loves. This version of “Take Me Away” seemed to be the crowd favorite of what I managed to record, so hopefully, the broad smiles and bliss I saw on the faces around me will end up on your faces as well.String Cheese Incident | Cover Set | HulaweenThis is another one of those “You had to be there” moments for me. While filming these tunes, a wonderful crew of volunteers helped me fight off giant inflatables so I could film the mayhem from as close as safety and sanity would permit! Thanks to all of those who made these videos possible, but to that bunch of loonies in particular!The Benevento/Russo Duo with Mike Gordon | “Scratchitti” | 10/27/17 | HulaweenThe crowd at Hulaween got a super special treat during the festival when bassist Mike Gordon of Phish joined The Benevento Russo Duo for a smokin’ version of “Scrachitti.”Yonder Mountain String Band | “Don’t Fear The Reaper” | 10/31/17I got to the show early to say hi to the Yonder Mountain String Band and heard them rehearsing a few special covers for the Halloween show that was coming, including this Blue Oyster Cult classic. The added bonus of their long-serving sound man on cowbell during the song was comedy gold though.North Mississippi All-Stars | “You Got To Move-Need To Be Free-Meet Me In The City” | 11/18/17 | Big Orange FestivalThis trio of jams from The North Mississippi All-Stars is included for more than just their kick-ass sound. It was truly wonderful to film such great music with such a lovely sunset behind the stage!Karl Denson | “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More” | 11/18/17 | Big Orange FestivalKarl Denson and his backing band, Tiny Universe, have booked a number of Allman Brothers tribute shows for next year, including a highly anticipated one for next year’s Wanee Music Festival. With such high profile versions of this show coming up soon, it was fun to get this little taste of what the sax player and his crack band could do with such legendary material.JJ Grey & Mofro | “Brighter Days” | 11/18/17| Big Orange Music FestivalAnytime JJ Grey has the mic, the show is in danger of turning into something resembling an old-school tent revival, and that is not a bad thing whatsoever! Songs like “Brighter Days” are tailor-made for Grey’s brand of preaching and get the crowd more ready to face life’s many challenges with fresh hope in their hearts. Mike Dillon | “Opener” | 12/4/17 | Aisle 5 | Atlanta, GAMike Dillon makes the list again, this time for his monumental tour closer with special guest, moe.’s Jim Loughlin. Loughlin and Dillon have a long history of working together, and with moe. on temporary hiatus, it was wonderful to watch the chemistry that has developed between these percussive pioneers as they pursued sonic excellence together in the most chaotic way possible! Turkuaz | “Change” | 12/8/17 | Nashville, TN | Exit/InThe last show I filmed this year was Turkuaz’s show in Nashville (save the New Year’s Eve show). Great vibe in the Exit/In, great sound, great musicianship, and best of all, incredible showmanship from the band themselves.
Winning is so over rated. I mean, who wants a medal or a trophy that says to the world, “I’m the best at FILL IN THE BLANK”? That’s just ostentatious.I feel like I’ve earned the right to say that, because I’ve never won anything in my life. Not even those school superlatives. In an informal poll my senior year, I had a real shot at winning “Most Likely to Drop Out of College,” but for a while it looked like I wasn’t even going to go to college, so my name was unceremoniously removed from the contest. Because I grew up in the ‘90s when they gave awards out to everybody who bothered to show up, I have a box full of “participation” medals, but none that I actually won.So yeah, winners are lame.And yet, I can’t help but get really excited when the winners of the Great American Beer Festival are announced. This is the biggest craft beer contest in the world, and most American breweries are represented, each submitting beers they’re proud of in specific styles. There was a time when the festival was dominated by West Coast breweries and a few progressive Midwestern shops, but I’m happy to say that the Southern Appalachians represented pretty well this year (the GABF was held last week in Denver).A number of our finest breweries pulled in some beautiful hard wear, but there are three winning beers that I think everyone should seek out if they have the opportunity.Hardywood Park’s Raspberry Stout. This Richmond brewery pulled big boy gold in the fruit beer category. Word on the street is their Raspberry Stout is worth its weight in, well, gold.Pisgah Brewing Chocolatized Vortex II. The limited release of this imperial stout has reached feverish levels in Asheville, and it earned a gold for Chocolate Beer at GABF.Monday Night Brewing Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt. I can’t imagine the big hitters that Monday Night went up against to win gold in the Bourbon Barrel Aged Beer category. Some of the most sought after beers in the country fall into this category. And this year, Monday Night, out of Atlanta, has the gold standard.The biggest round of congratulations in our region has to go to Virginia’s Devils Backbone, which won four individual medals (including a gold for their Schwartz Bier) and the biggest award of all: Midsize Brewing Company of the Year. That’s their third consecutive national title for Devils Backbone at GABF. Obviously, these dudes are on a roll. It’s enough to make me change my stance on winners.

Norway-based dry bulk shipping company Golden Ocean Group Limited (GOGL) has reached and agreement to purchase two modern Capesize vessels from affiliates of Hemen Holding Limited.The ships would be bought from the company, indirectely controlled by trusts established by John Fredriksen, at a price of USD 43 million per unit.“We are pleased to be in the position to acquire high quality, modern Capesize vessels that are expected to generate free cash flow immediately upon delivery. This transaction is consistent with our strategy of focusing our commercial efforts on the vessel segments that we believe will provide the greatest leverage to a recovery in the dry bulk shipping market,” Birgitte Ringstad Vartdal, CEO of Golden Ocean Management AS, said.As settlement of the purchase price for the ships, Golden Ocean will enter into a non-amortizing seller’s credit loan with an affiliate of Hemen for 50% of the purchase price, which bears interest at LIBOR + 3.00% per annum and matures three years after delivery of the vessels.GOGL informed that the remaining part of the purchase price will be settled on delivery of the vessels with an estimated USD 9 million of cash and an estimated USD 34 million of newly-issued common shares of the company at a per-share price equal to the offer price in an expected equity offering.The Capesizes are expected to be delivered within four months of the date hereof, Golden Ocean said, adding that the completion of the transaction is subject to completion of an equity offering and entry into the seller’s credit loan.Once the acquisition and expected equity offering is finalized, Hemen, together with certain of its affiliates, will maintain its current ownership percentage of around 34.2% of GOGL’s issued and outstanding common shares.Furthermore, as Golden Ocean’s financial position has been enhanced over the past 12 months, the company intends to terminate the covenant waivers related to its recourse debt upon completion of the expected equity offering, Ringstad Vartdal informed.“This will reinstate the normal covenants, which the company is now in compliance with, and remove the company’s restrictions on new acquisitions, new debt and dividend payments. The waiver structure in the non-recourse debt related to the transactions announced in March 2017 will remain,” Ringstad Vartdal said.
