THE FUTURE OF SOLAR IS BRIGHT
This patio light is a real jack-of-all-trades:
The LED solar light Bump is equipped with
a large light head that radiates light all
around on a large surface. The extruded,
powder-coated aluminium frame can be
easily adjusted in three heights - 75 cm,
125 cm, 175 cm - so that, for example,
when combining several Bump solar lights
on the patio, a decorative image is created.
A motion sensor has been integrated into
Bump so that the light is only switched on
when needed. There are two ways to
recharge: via the solar panel or via the
integrated USB port on the mains power
THE LIGHT-UP PLAY LAMP
From the same people who brought you the
Synergy Lamp comes the Light-Up Play Lamp.
Nordic elegance and your favourite music at
your fingertips: the Lite-up Play makes it
happen. This wireless Bluetooth speaker and
LED lamp is a multifunctional device that lets
you listen to high-quality audio while it emits a
warm ambient light. Turning any mood into
your mood. And for an even better audio
experience, you can pair the Bluetooth speaker
with one other Lite-up Play.
THE ANI LAMP
THE SPIRIT LAMP
SPIRIT sets the mood – wherever, whenever.
This small LED outdoor light can be used
anywhere – and it is simple to recharge the
light using a USB cable. With two brightness
levels, it can create lighting that suits the
mood. The satin-finished plastic shade casts
a gentle, shimmering light. The shade is
complemented by the matt stainless steel
ring and the plastic base in soft beige.
Battery life: 6 to 12 hours. Available in two
colours and two sizes. Splash-proof for that
THE ANI LAMP
The main idea was to design a lamp that would
work both outside and indoors and that could be
used both standing and hanging, while still
embracing all the aesthetic demands for a modern
The result is a simply shaped shade on a classic
base influenced by streetlights and traditional
architectural lamps. It can be altered according to
your needs and adapted to fit any space – from
your living room to your terrace. An added bonus is
the choice of brightness of the light, which can be
dimmed to create a cosy atmosphere.
I am enjoying all the recipes I have tried so far from
Nigella Lawson’s wonderful cookbook
Cook, Eat, Repeat
Chicken in a pot with Lemon and Orzo
• 1 x Chicken (Approx. 1.5Kgs)
• 3 Fat Cloves of Garlic
• 2 x Medium carrot (Approx. 300g)
• 2 x Medium Leaks (400g trimmed weight)
• 15ml Olive Oil
• 2 x Lemons
• 2 x tsp Dried Tarragon or dried Thyme
2 tsp Sea Salt Flakes (or 1 tsp fine sea salt)
1/2 tsp dried Chilli Flakes
• 1.5 Litres Cold Water
• 300g Orzo pasta
• 6 x5ml tsp finely chopped parsley and more to serve
• Freshly Grated Parmesan to serve
1Heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC Fan.
2. Peel the garlic cloves, and peel and cut the carrots into three lengths across, and then
into batons. Wash the leeks to remove any mud, if needed, and cut into approx. 2½cm
3. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based casserole with a tightly fitting lid; Place the chicken
in the hot oil breast-side down to colour the skin; I do this over high heat for 3–5 minutes,
or until the skin is richly golden. Then turn the chicken the right way up.
4. Take the pan off the heat and, aiming for the space around the chicken, finely grate
in the zest from the 2 lemons, then grate or mince in the , add the dried tarragon (or
thyme) and give a quick stir into the oil as best you can.
5. Scatter the vegetables around the chicken, followed by the salt and chilli flakes
(if using), and squeeze in the juice from your zested lemons.
6. Pour in the cold water – covering all but the very top of the breast –and put back on
high heat, then bring the pot to a boil. Once it’s bubbling, clamp on the lid and carefully
transfer to the oven to cook for 1¼ hours, though check to make sure the chicken is all
but cooked through and the carrots soft.
7. Take the pot out of the oven, and add the orzo all around the chicken, and push it
under the liquid, giving something of a stir. Put the lid back on, and return the casserole
to the oven for another 15 minutes, by which time the orzo should be soft and swollen.
8. Let the casserole stand, uncovered, out of the oven for 15 minutes before serving. The
orzo will continue to soak up the broth as it stands.
9. While you’re waiting, chop the parsley. Stir in 4 tablespoons, and then sprinkle over a
little more. You could shred the chicken now, but it looks so wonderful in its pot I like to
bring it to the table whole.
10. Place a dish by the casserole, and then pull the chicken gently apart with a couple of
forks, removing any bones and skin that come loose to the dish. Stir the chicken and orzo
again and ladle into bowls, sprinkling with parsley as you go. Offer Parmesan to grate for
those who want.
Store - Refrigerate leftovers, covered, for up to 3 days. Reheat in microwave or saucepan
over medium heat, stirring and adding extra water if needed, until piping hot. Pasta will
soften on reheating.
Freeze - Freeze leftovers in airtight container for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in
fridge. Reheat as above.
