1. The Ritz Presents Les Arts De La Table
The Ritz Restaurant has finally launched its ‘Les Arts de la Table’ menu. If you're wondering what the devil that is, it's the 'forgotten art of table service' - something The Ritz prides themselves on keeping alive. It involves classic dishes which are presented, whole, to the guest before being expertly carved or filleted and plated up at the table.

2. Next Week Is National Picnic Week!
Don't bother checking weather though - we've already looked and it ain't good, we'd suggest at the least taking your umbrella along on your picnic or better yet, a marquee.
This year make your sarnies extra special with The English Provender Company's new chutneys. Our favourite? The apple, pear and fig number - perfect with honey roast ham.

3. Kids Think Cheese Grows On Trees
In slightly concerning news, a new study's found that one third of primary school children think that cheese grows on trees. A further 1 in 10 thought that tomatoes grow underground and one third thought bread and pasta came from meat.
The worst bit? 1 in 5 under 11s thought the main ingredient in fish fingers was chicken. The clue's in the name guys.

6. Fruit Store's Prices Are Bananas
The latest weirdness to come out of Japan - Sembikiya is a high-end fruit store in Tokyo that sells super-special fruit costing all sorts of silly money. The cube shaped watermelon above? £135. The melons are grown with little hats on too - to protect them from the sun. Awww.
