The cuvées of the House of Louis Roederer are the fruit of patient work with fundamental ingredients, the collaboration of experts, a quest for the perfect balance, and hardy and generous grapes, cultivated in the Champagne soil, producing a wine with a summery character and crystalline elegance. The Louis Roederer House has remained an independent, family-owned company. With the same patience and unshakeable faith in its creative vocation, the House of Louis Roederer’s annual exports total three million bottles around the world.
At Mosimann’s, cuisine takes centre stage. Our motto of “passion for excellence” has characterised Anton Mosimann’s revolutionary innovations in fine food since the earliest days, and remains superbly evident in every flavour that graces the palate in a Mosimann’s culinary experience. Headed up by Anton Mosimann OBE, Mosimann's has been a family run business for over 30 years. In the past “good food” and “food that is good for you” were seen as mutually exclusive: food could be either one or the other but never both. The basic principles of good cooking and Anton Mosimann’s style of cooking have always been to use the freshest ingredients and prepare them in a way that brings out their flavour and goodness.
Maggie’s offers the best possible support free to anyone with cancer and their families who walk through our doors. You'll find their centres alongside NHS hospitals and they can also support you online. Maggie Keswick Jencks used her experience of cancer to create a new type of cancer care – centres offering professional support, bringing people together in a calm, friendly, uplifting space. Maggie's idea was that with the right support, nobody would "lose the joy of living in the fear of dying" when diagnosed with cancer. They also have centres abroad and plan to extend the support to have 30 centres open in the UK by 2022.
