Strong trend that gastro experience and curiosity increasingly influence choice across the tourism sector - not sure though if it translates to continued growth in the pure gastro tourism segment .

A comprehensive no nonsense article that stays clear of tiresome Armagnac lore. It also elegantly avoids directly pointing out that Armagnac brandy is so much more interesting than the better known French brandy Cognac. The latter
being internationally branded and mass-produced remains comparatively expensive given the generic no value added products. And the journalist seemingly didn't even get to visit the best of the single vineyard vintage producers: so a big one for the home team :D

There's a popular misconception that Armagnac very similar to Cognac, it isn't. Cognac is a spirit category with rules and regularities designed to create similarities between different cognacs. While Armagnac is defined more by just how different each Armagnac is.

Feats of nature - micro birds  flying from Denmark to the UK :-) 
If you love the natural world, one of the most exciting places in Britain is the north Norfolk coast in autumn, especially with a North-east wind blowing, because its airflow brings a wonderful procession of migrant birds escaping the colder weather in continental Europe.

Apart from the somewhat contradictory call for un-laminated wine lists (snobbish ) and ambient lighting to ease mobile perusal (still bad manners during a fine meal), the critic nails self-evidently annoying practices many restaurants persist with.

French enterprise culture stifles conversion to integrated internt /big data strategies for corporate survival, let alone growth, even in marketing they
lag badly behind their international peers.

Semingly working with the US system, and very goal oriented, this Musk may have a chance of impact and help to create a healthier eating culture where Jamie Oliver and others had little impact apart from a little media teacup storm. 
While Elon Musk tries to solve the world's transportation and energy problems, his brother Kimbal is working to transform what we eat.

The flight of refugees from troubled areas of the world has often been one of the most devastating consequences of warfare.
