One of Surrey's leading gents, Chef Adebola Adeshina talks about who inspires him, his love for cooking and The Petersham Restaurant in Surrey Life magazine.

Also don't miss him this Bank Holiday Sunday at Syon Park, 5pm in the Chef's Theatre for his demonstration at the Foodies Festival.

Fascinating...
 
You might typically think artistry and technology have very little to do with each other, but when creativity and machinery come together, the results are entirely spectacular. Case ín poínt: when artíst. began usíng a laser cutter, he was able to create beautífully ornate wooden sculptures.

Inspiration for my best selling Scarred Series

'Running Scarred' was inspired by a chance discovery one dusky evening in France, of ruined Chateau hidden deep in a forest in Brittany.

It was creepy but beautiful and was begging to be rescued. On further investigation I was told that it had once been the home of a rich and beautiful heiress whose family couldn't keep up with the expenses to keep it in good repair after her demise. It had been sold to the French community and then turned into a special care hospital before falling into ruin and being abandoned by the commune.

The whole area was deeply romantic. The forest had encroached upon the once manicured gardens and the windows were hanging limply in their frames. I just had to include the place in one of my books but at that time was unsure how.

On returning home to the U.K. not long after my discovery of the chateau, there was a very moving medal ceremony shown on television.  

Our tiny Queen Elizabeth was awarding the highest medals of honour to our bravest and most heroic soldiers after their return from their tours of duty in Afghanistan. I was with a wheelchair bound friend and was watching the medal ceremony. One of our gallant heroes had thrown himself over a grenade to stop his comrades being killed and he had suffered the most terrible injuries. Both of his legs and one arm had been blown off by the force of the explosion and his face was dreadfully scarred but he sat proudly in his wheelchair to receive his medal, looking so courageous and strong yet so frightened and scared as our tiny Queen pinned his medal to his chest.

The Queen spoke a few words to the brave young man and my friend remarked, with a tear in her eye, "Well, at least there is going to be someone at the after medal party who he will be able to talk to."

I asked her what she meant and was completely taken aback when she replied that sitting in a wheelchair was just awful. You were either ignored or only ever spoke to someone else's navel. She said that at least, with our Queen being so small, there would someone he could still look right in the eye while conversing!

I was completely stunned by her words and they really made me think about the differences that the young man's selfless bravery had made to his life and how more able people would view him.

'Running Scarred' was begun that same evening and there are now five books in the series.

Have a look at these wonderful stories and feel free to share!  I've so loved reading the Scarred Series - full of bravery and bravado, derring do and all sorts of mad shenanigans of Afghan war Veterans overcoming their post war injuries in a Chateau in Brittany.  Overflowing with mystery and romance I was absolutely roaring with laughter and then reduced to tears with the poignant moments so beautifully relayed in a witty and sensitive manner - treat yourself to an indulgent read...

Outstanding Concise Help and Advice The service offered here is excellent. I could understand the instructions, they were accurately and simply explained. I'm overwhelmed by the the amazing way I've been treated, absolutely fantastic, there are human beings out their to help you with your Mac probs. This is the place to get all those nuggets of info that sort you and your machine out. Time was used most efficiently and to my benefit. I was asked questions which enabled the problems to be diagnosed quickly by the advisor and it's excellent value for money. What more can I say except that I can thoroughly recommend….
