“The Yumcious catering offerings are real crowd-pleasers. Whether you are planning an informal supper for a family get-together or a special occasion for friends, you can be assured of happy faces and plenty of compliments when you serve any of these dishes.
I have had the pleasure of cooking for several high-profile people – Prince Charles, Presidents Thabo Mbeki and FW de Klerk, Vice President Al Gore, Kenneth Kaunda, King Goodwill Zwelithini, Charlize Theron, Graham Norton, and the Duke and Duchess of Kent, to name but a few – and I treated them all the same as I would the man on the corner. I have approached every catering job as if I was cooking for my own family; I have never cut corners or used substandard ingredients, and I only prepare food that I like to eat myself. I cater weddings, funerals, birthdays, product launches, you name it. I love designing the menu around my client’s needs, imaging what they would like to serve their guests.
But more than anything, I simply love feeding people so catering will always hold a special place in my heart.” - Jenny Morris

With a foreword by Guenther Steiner - Team Principal of the Haas Formula One Team, Formula 1: The Pinnacle tracks a history of the changes which have taken F1 from its rudimentary beginnings to the exhilarating high octane spectacle it is today. The biggest change in a generation is coming to F1 in 2022. Technical changes aimed at levelling the playing field for the teams combined with the sport's tightening budget cap will make the races closer than ever. There will be more sprint races - trialled in 2021 - and greater fan interest driven by Netflix's hugely successful 'Drive to Survive' series. So, how did we get here? How did F1 become the acknowledged 'Pinnacle of Motorsport'? Simon Arron and Tony Dodgins have identified the 100 most significant changes to the series since its inception in 1950. Formula One is unrecognizable from its debut season, where drivers raced around on old bomber training aerodrome in Northamptonshire with oil drums to mark the corners and straw bales the only concession to safety. New fans will welcome a complete and highly illustrated guide to the history of F1, while older fans will be able to compare their own views of what were the pivotal moments of change, in a book written by experienced motoring writers with two lifetimes worth of knowledge of the sport. The book will link technical progress with the personalities involved, indeed many of the swiftest changes have come about as a result of accidents or tragedies - the death of Roland Ratzenberger at Imola in 1994, the same weekend as Ayrton Senna, could have been avoided by the HANS safety device. The introduction of the halo saved Romain Grosjean's life in Bahrain last year, but only came about because of the tragic accident that claimed Jules Bianchi in Japan. Along with changes to circuits and the technology of the cars, this book highlights the commercial changes and the controversies that threatened to split the sport apart - such as the threat of breakaway series proposed at various times by teams. A must-read for completists or for those new to the sport, F1: The Pinnacle is a fascinating insight into one of the most exciting and dangerous sports in the world.

The duel between fish and man and their unspoken bond... Approximately 71% of Earth is covered by water, and since time immemorial, man has been using a rod and line to fish in rivers, lakes and the ocean. Perhaps it is the mystery of what might happen on each fishing trip that captivates so many and, whether successful or not, ensures they return again and again to test their skills and try to outwit the fish. But there is tremendous respect from those who sit on riverbanks, lakesides or on the ocean. Catching the fish is the actual sport, but it is the challenge and skill that keeps anglers coming back for more. There are also numerous benefits for mind and body, outlined by some of the greatest thinkers in history, not to mention the peace, tranquillity and connection with nature that are arguably as important as the act of catching a fish itself. The Little Book of Fishing will, for the first time, bring quotes, thoughts and theories on this captivating pastime together in an unforgettable collection of witticisms and observations. SAMPLE QUOTE: 'Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after' - Henry David Thoreau. SAMPLE TEXT - FACTS AND TRIVIA: * Anglers spend more than $1 billion a year on bait alone. * The five basic methods of angling are bait fishing, fly-fishing, bait casting, spinning, and trolling.
