Situated near Buckingham Palace, bbar serves everything from boerewors to bunny chow.South African food is being served at bbar, a restaurant near Buckingham Palace. (Image: bbar)Compiled by Priya PitamberA hop and a skip away from Buckingham Palace in London lies bbar, a cocktail bar and restaurant offering an array of South African dishes. Think bobotie springrolls, biltong, chakalaka, boerewors and Cape Malay curries.It is owned by South African hotelier Beatrice Tollman, whose expertise, along with that of her husband, Stanley, extends to the Red Carnation Group of 17 luxurious hotels across South Africa, the UK and US. It includes Durban’s The Oyster Box and The Twelve Apostles in Cape Town.Stanley named the restaurant bbar as a tribute to Beatrice’s love for home-grown recipes. Her passion for the kitchen is also documented in her cook book, A Life in Food. It contains recipes passed down through the family as well as creations inspired by her travels.The South African influence“There seems to be a demand for South African cuisine in London,” said general manager Ian Powrie, speaking to the Sunday Times. “At the bbar there is a huge demand for bobotie, SA style Cape Malay curries, biltong, boerewors and avocado-based salads.”There is no one that does #NationalCurryWeek like bbar.

In 1954, she opened her first hotel in Johannesburg called the Nugget. But she also fondly remembers their second hotel, the Hyde Park Hotel.“We named the main restaurant there The Colony, inspired by the supper clubs of New York and it soon attracted international cabaret stars (e.g. Petula Clark and Trini Lopez) and famous guests such as Marlene Dietrich, George Peppard and Michael Caine,” Tollman told lifestyle news website, Belle About Town.“It was a very exciting time; these famous people stayed at our Hyde Park Hotel! We ran three other restaurants from this same hotel.”No day was ever the same in the hotel industry, she said, which gave her great enjoyment.Her love for foodAccording to Powrie, bbar is to showcase Beatrice’s recipes and it is a thank you from Stanley for the hard work during the early years of business.Beatrice firmly believes food brings people together. “Gathering friends and family together for a fantastic meal is a bonding experience and helps maintain close relationships in a world where everyone’s lives are getting increasingly busy.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Kelley Tilmon and Andy Michel, Ohio State University ExtensionWith all the planting difficulties in 2019 there are soybeans in a much greater variety of growth stages than usual this summer. What does this mean for stink bug management? First, it means that different fields will be in the danger zone at different times. Stink bugs feed on developing pods and seeds, with the potential for damage beginning in R3 and R4-R5 being prime damage time, with damage potential still lingering in early R6. This year peak damage potential may be spread over a larger window of time. Second, the latest soybeans to mature will be at extra risk at the end of the season. Stink bug adults are quite mobile and able to move into new fields. As earlier fields mature they will naturally be attracted to fields that are still green. If only a few fields are still green at the tail end of the season the immigration will be magnified. The same is true for bean leaf beetle and pod feeding. Our monitoring shows that this process can continue into October. Late-maturing fields should receive extra scouting attention.To sample for stink bugs, take multiple 10-sweep samples with a sweep net in multiple locations throughout the field. Average the number of stink bugs in the 10-sweep samples. The threshold to treat is 4 or more stink bugs (adults and nymphs combined). If soybeans are being grown for seed or food, the threshold can be dropped to 2 or more stink bugs. When scouting time is tight (and when isn’t it) scout first at the field edges where stink bugs tend to accumulate first. If they are found in the edges move the scouting effort further into the field to assess the extent of infestation. If populations are still mainly on the edge, sometimes an edge treatment can do the job.For more information about stink bugs and bean leaf beetles in soybeans visit our publications at:https://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/ENT-48https://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/ENT-23https://aginsects.osu.edu/sites/aginsects/files/imce/Stink%20bugs%20of%20Ohio%20Jan%2018%202018%20Online.pdf
