Exploring African Cuisine At Zim Braai

I am always so excited to visit a new restaurant, but our recent visit to Zim Braai took that to a new level. Not only was it a restaurant I hadn’t visited before, it was also a cuisine I had never really experienced. Zim Braai is a multi award-winning boutique restaurant group based in Dorset with restaurants in Bournemouth and Poole. We visited their Ashley Cross restaurant and I was absolutely blown away, not only by the food but the lovely atmosphere and brilliant service we received. Zim have created a truly authentic African menu using traditional flame cooking methods…

Getting To Grips With Coding With Cypher | AD

One of the main roles as a parent is to ensure your children are ready for the big wide world once they decide to fly the nest. We do this in many ways, keeping them safe, teaching them general life skills and ensuring they get a good education.

Read More With BookPoints From Books2Door

I have mentioned previously how important reading is to us as a family. I feel in this tech generation we spend so long looking at screens and being led by the media into what we should see and feel. Reading allows you to take the words on a page and use your own imagination to picture those characters and the settings. You get a real in-depth description of characters thoughts and feelings and for children especially I think this goes a long long way to helping them understand their own thoughts and feelings. I have always been a reader, from…
