    Whip it! The culinary technique revolutionising our restaurants

    With a quick whisk and a handful of vanilla seeds, the yoghurt at 26 Grains in Neal’s Yard is transformed into a puffed-up mousse, far removed from the usual pots of the white stuff. This yoghurt becomes a headline ingredient, beyond its usual status as a base or a side to take the edge off more dominant flavours. It is served with seasonal apple compôte and salty, savoury buckwheat crumb with almonds in it — the yoghurt is an alkaline antidote that offsets the sharp fruit but whipped it becomes more of an event.

    Billionaire Branson targeted in $5 million scam 'straight out of le Carre'

    Richard Branson, billionaire founder of the Virgin group, has revealed he was targeted by a fraudster posing as Britain's defence minister who tried to get him to contribute $5 million (3.8 million pounds) to a supposed secret ransom payment. Appealing for information to help identify the conman, Branson said he suspected the same person had later impersonated him to steal $2 million from a friend of his by pretending to raise funds for people affected by Hurricane Irma. "This story sounds like it has come straight out of a John le Carre book or a James Bond film, but it is sadly all true," Branson wrote in a blog.
