VALENTINE’S DAY MENU (& love notes!)

Starter:
Roast garlic & celery soup with courgette noodles & a dash of basil pistou oil

Garlic is a wonderful antioxidant and is known to increase the blood flow to certain key areas of the body…
Celery is laced with folate which help to regulate the production of histamine – the chemical released during an orgasm.

Aromatic basil has long been thought to stimulate the sex drive and boost fertility. In India the herb represents love and, more recently, friendship.

Olive oil is an excellent regulator of hormones – green olives are great for men and black olives give women a hormone lift.  

Main:
Savoury tarte tatin with confit tomato & aubergine, asparagus & avocado salad with arugula and pine nut pesto

Tomatoes or ‘Love Apples’ have long been depicted as a culinary representation of love and romance because of their colour and heart-like appearance.

The aubergine emoji has been adopted by modern day hieroglyphists as a symbol of the male, but this is nothing new as the aubergine has been exulted thus since the 11th century when Bagdad physician Ibn Butlan wrote about the aphrodisiacal properties of both the appearance and the consumption of the fruit/vegetable (which is it?!).

Asparagus is high in folic acid which is particularly good for the male libido, while the delicious soft flesh and alluring pear shape of the avocado has long represented love and romance throughout certain regions of Europe.

Arugula or rocket has been used as an arousal aid since Ancient Greek times.

Pud:
Figs baked in a honey/agave & balsamico syrup with chocolate strawberries & ice cream/sorbet

Alongside strawberries, figs have courted a long association with love and fertility with their decadent pink innards and warm exotic flavour.

Honey contains the mineral boron which increases testosterone, helps the body utilise oestrogen and has long been used as an aphrodisiac in Greek, Italian and in Nordic cultures.  

They say eating chocolate releases the ‘love hormone’ and can make you feel happy, as endorphins are released while you’re eating the moreish brown confectionary and bind with opiate receptors in the brain. Yum.

DEbbieSiren

Ever wondered what happens to a siren when she ages? Well, Shirley is here to tell you she is not willing to be put out to sea just yet…

Join in for a fun evening of songs, dancing and all things fishy.

Shirley’s cabaret sails through many decades of life’s rubbish as a siren on the rocks!

What audience and press are saying about Shirley Knot:

‘This show is about a journey that starts with not fitting in, how her parents tried to get her to fit and how she ended up doing something she was good at but didn’t enjoy. It’s all linked together through songs, shows tunes, comic songs and opera. What is remarkable is Shirley’s voice. Powerful, emotive and clear. From the first notes of the first song …’ – Joe Angella – Fringe Review

‘What a great night. Loved the opera and, of course, Jason – swoon – Murray Hecht

‘Loved it! Charming and funny and well balanced. Perfect guest turns.’ Adrian Jameson

‘Love it, Debbie’ – Debi Jones Maas

‘Go Shirley, Love it’ – Nicholas Quirke ‘Fin’ling good’

Headline: Understory
Understory

‘Understory is a young folk trio with roots in England and Scotland whose members grew up absorbing tunes through their feet and fingers. John (fiddle), Tom (accordion, piano) and Heather (mandolin, piano, voice) bring an array of classical upbringings and jazz forays to a mutual love of traditional music. Settle in and hear the music evolve with the mischievous joy these three find in playing together.’

25th March:
David Bramwell is back with a double bill of entertaining talks…

Dr B

Masquerade: the book that launched the world’s largest treasure hunt 
David shares the incredible story of Masquerade, a book that in 1979 everyone bought but no-one could figure out.By burying a golden hare as prize for solving the book’s riddles, artist Kit Williams created 2 million armchair sleuths and inspired thousands of proactive treasure seekers to spend two years digging up National Trust properties vainly searching for the treasure. After the hare was unearthed by sculduggery it didn’t end well for anybody. Some were even driven to madness by the hunt. But where is the golden hare now?
Postal Pranks and Mischief 
Who hasn’t at some time in their life received a set of false teeth through the mail? David has. But then he did spend a year posting the strangest things he could think of, to various friends around the world. His inspiration was a Victorian prankster called Reginald Bray who, over his lifetime, sent 30,000 singular objects through the newly formed Royal Mail, including a cigarette, turnips, a bowler hat, his dog and himself. Bray also tested the wit of the humble postie by sending postcards with backward handwriting and cryptic clues for uncovering the recipient’s address. This talk celebrates Bray’s life and antics and how he inspired David to follow in his footsteps. At the end he hopes you too will feel inspired to post a flip-flop to someone you love
