Date: Wednesday 30th March 2011Venue: Leatherhead Food Research, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7RY>> location and map for Leatherhead Food Research What are the technical, cost, time and resourcing issues facing bakers tasked with reducing sat fats?In 2009 British Baker organised a meeting between craft bakers, manufacturers, fats and oils suppliers and the Food Standards Agency (FSA), to give voice to the technical challenges in meeting proposed saturated fat reduction targets. Eighteen months on and a new government is in place, the regulatory landscape has changed, and the FSA’s nutritional role has shifted to the Department of Health.This follow-up meeting will draw key retail and manufacturing professionals in the bakery industry together to explore how the sat fat reduction agenda is developing. Following the meeting, British Baker will present the industry’s views to the Department of Health to help its food reformulation programme.Discussion points:How difficult is it to reduce saturated fat without compromising the quality of your products?What % reductions should be targeted? Is a blanket approach feasible?Should certain treat products such as indulgent cakes and butter pastries be exempt from the process?What if the baker also offers a healthy alternative? What are the differing challenges facing large and small suppliers and brands?Do credible fats, oils and ingredients alternatives exist in the marketplace?Given labelling restraints, what are the marketing incentives for brands to reduce saturated fat?Is sat fat reformulation the right strategy to tackle obesity and nutrition issues?What is a credible timescale to achieve sat fat reductions in light of resourcing and cost constraints?Agenda09.00-09.30 Registration and coffee09.45-09.50 Welcome, Sylvia Macdonald, editor, British Baker0950-10.00 Introduction, chairman, Geoff Talbot, ‘The Fat Consultant’10.00-10.10 Presentation10.10-11.00 Discussion (includes coffee)11.00-11.10 Presentation11.10-12.30 Discussion 12:30-14:00 Networking LunchReserve your free place today!To reserve your FREE place call:Rachael CannonTel: 01293 610433email: [email protected] are strictly limited to manufacturers and retailers only and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Last weekend, rising CT-based jam outfit Eggy opened for Twiddle along with Aqueous at College Street Music Hall in New Haven. While Twiddle was the evening’s main event, the crowd came out early for Eggy, who delivered a high-energy set of originals for their hometown fans. During the set, guitarist Jake Brownstein spoke about making their debut at New Haven’s premier concert venue, explaining, “we’re from New Haven, so when this venue opened up a year ago, we couldn’t have ever imagined playing here.”As keyboardist Dani Battat expressed following the performance, “Playing College Street Music Hall was an opportunity for us to reflect on the past four years of hard work and learning to be a band. We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s support that has helped bring us to this stage in our careers and we view this show as a glimpse into the future.”You can watch the full set below:Setlist: In It For The Ride > All Wheels Turnin’, Onitsuka Tiger > In It For The Ride (Reprise)The band is currently working on their debut studio album, tentatively titled Miles To Go. Eggy will join Strange Machines tonight at The Acoustic in Bridgeport, CT.

North Carolina State’s resolve didn’t surprise Dion Waiters.Syracuse was in NC State’s house, in the Orange’s first game as the No. 1 team in the nation. Until SU falls from its perch above the rest of college basketball, every team’s going to want a shot at the Orange.‘They came out on fire, hitting a lot of shots, a lot of great shots,’ the Syracuse guard said. ‘And what really turned the momentum around is we did a better job of settling down on the defensive end then letting the offense click.’Syracuse dealt well with its first test as the No. 1 Orange (11-0) finally disposed of NC State in a 16-point win on Saturday. But as SU returns home for its final three games of 2011, the hunger of its opponents to shock the college basketball world won’t let up at all. Both teams who held the No. 1 spot before Syracuse this season — North Carolina and Kentucky — lost to then-unranked teams. Syracuse will try to avoid being the next to fall when the Orange plays Bucknell (7-4) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.The Bison made the NCAA Tournament last season and upset Syracuse in 2005 in the two teams’ last meeting.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘You’re the No. 1 team in the country,’ Waiters said, ‘everyone is coming for you. And you just got to be ready, mentally and physically prepared.’Fortunately for SU, it won’t have to go back on the road until Jan. 1. Multiple signs in the crowd read lines referring to Syracuse’s status as the No. 1 team. The Wolfpack players displayed emotions that gave the sense the stakes were higher than just a regular December nonconference game.Every successful shot by NC State early in Saturday’s game accelerated an avalanche of adulation by both the players and fans. Off an SU basket, the Wolfpack pushed ahead of the Orange defense before it set up the 2-3 zone. Forward Richard Howell received a pass while running down the lane for a dunk, putting NC State up 23-15.The Wolfpack players hustled back on defense, talking and bouncing with some ostentation.The same thing occurred in the second half, when the Wolfpack charged back into the contest and matched the Orange’s effort until late.‘We played well,’ SU forward Kris Joseph said after the game. ‘That’s how we need to play. The one thing I can take from this game is that when we’re up we’ve got to keep our foot on the pedal.‘We can’t, although it’s not like we do it purposely — we just got to stay sharp, as we were in the first half.’Bucknell is no stranger to the upset. The Bison were a No. 14 seed in the 2005 NCAA Tournament when they upended third-seeded Kansas, the first-ever tournament win for a team from the Patriot League.Four starters are back from Bucknell’s 25-win team from a season ago. After the Orange’s win over George Washington on Dec. 10, SU guard Scoop Jardine said there can be a little lag against opponents that appear to be inferior.Syracuse retained its No. 1 ranking for the second straight week when the new polls came out on Monday, something SU wasn’t able to do the last time it was No. 1 in March 2010. But after the GW game, Jardine wasn’t making comparisons yet.‘We can be better,’ he said. ‘I’m not going to rank where we’re at but we can be better. We got the ability to be the best but right now we can be better on defense and especially our offense can be better so that’s what we’re working on.’The Orange showed an ability to respond well to the adversity of trailing on the road against a tough opponent. Syracuse has two games left before it opens Big East play against Seton Hall on Dec. 28.Presumably, SU should still be undefeated and No. 1 by then. But UNC and Kentucky weren’t expected to lose when they were upset.‘A lot of teams are going to go out there harder,’ Waiters said after the GW game, ‘and we just got to go out there and play Syracuse basketball and don’t try and do a lot of things that we usually don’t try to do.’[email protected] Published on December 19, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: [email protected] | @mark_cooperjr Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
