A man named after whiskey has named his son for bourbon.

Thirty-one-year-old Jack Daniels Leathers of Gray says he and his 23-year-old wife, Lydia Leathers, chose the name well before their marriage.

He tells The Courier they talked about baby names on their first date and thought Jim Beam would be a good idea.

Jim Beam Leathers was born 14 November, turning grandparental pique into tradition. Jack Daniels Leathers says his parents named him to upset their own parents.

He says that if they have another baby, a boy would be Evan Williams, after the bourbon, and a girl would be named Sherry.

The alcoholic names extended to the Terrebonne Parish judge who officiated at their wedding: Judge Johnny Walker.

Garlic Shrimps Flambé with Cognac

I love shrimps and prawn!

Originally the recipe was intended to be prepared with king prawns. Well I really don’t know if it would be better with them as the result was so delicious that I can’t imagine it better.

For 4 peoples served with fresh bread (as baguette) and salad this makes a main course.

I can imagine that this served on noodles would make a delicious dish as well.

If you prefer to use this as starter this would serve about 8 to 10 persons.

Hand Picked in Zanzibar

Zanzibar’s clove harvest

The archipelago of Zanzibar in Tanzania, sometimes known as the Spice Islands, was once the world’s largest producer of cloves. It is still an important industry for farmers on the island of Pemba as the BBC’s Ruth Nesoba found out during the harvesting of the flower buds which when dried are used as a spice in cooking, to flavour drinks like mulled wine and in medicine.

The picked flower buds and leaves are carried in a gunny sack from the farmers’ land to the villages. The crop is then sorted to separate the leaves from the buds. Both are left to dry in the sun. The dried leaves are crushed and can be used in perfumes and fragrances. They are also used in an oil which can have sanitary applications and is sometimes used in dentistry.

DRINKS ENTHUSIAST

Reyka Martini Dispenser

The UK Ambassador for Reyka, the premium Icelandic vodka, has invented a Martini Dispenser that delivers perfect, ice cold Reyka cocktails every time.

Fuelled with a mix of Reyka vodka, vermouth and limited edition Reyka bitters; at the push of a button the Martini Dispenser pumps the cocktail through flash coolers that chill the liquid down to -18 degrees Celsius before neatly dispensing it from a brass tap into your martini glass. All that’s needed to perfect the cocktail is a final red grapefruit zest garnish.

Joe Petch, UK Brand Ambassador for Reyka, commented: “With several events on the horizon, I’ve been looking for a way for guests to serve their own perfectly cold Reyka Martinis. The machine we came up with reflects the inventive culture of Iceland, where people do things a little bit differently but also in a resourceful way – reinventing unwanted or unused objects to fulfil…
