And Bob’s Tavern stands out with its appearance on Instagram: the photos that follow life in and around the tavern are all just not a boring string of new menus and dishes. The pictures are full of emotions and sincere desire to communicate the values that Bobi cares about: the sea, nature, family, Murter, Kornati, togetherness…, worth peek at the profile! Boba, a family nickname – a kind of dedication to a family story and a link to Murter – is the name of the tavern where he chefs Vjeko Basic. For years, one of the cult Dalmatian restaurants has nurtured a true culinary tradition based on fresh seafood, as well as vegetables and spices from the restaurant’s ecological garden. The family tavern is one of the few on the coast that is open all year round and has its regular guests, although it is relatively isolated from established tourist routes. In addition to the great kitchen, the reason is a pleasant interior with an open fireplace and, of course, friendly and professional staff led by an eternally smiling chef. Marko Gajski with Vis cake (photo by Spori Zecov) Marko Gajski and Drazen Matkovic (photo by Spori Zecov) Marko Gajski, a computer science graduate, appeared at Masterchef in 2011 and since then has been developing his style of imaginative creations of traditional and international dishes, with the basic premise: he uses various processing techniques to make full use of food and get the most out of taste. In addition to the magnificent symphony of flavors and aromas, his plates are adorned with Instagram appeal, so he says that guests sometimes forget to eat the dish served, especially his version of Komiža bread. Restaurant LD within the boutique hotel Lesic Dimitri Palace for several years now it has been an unavoidable stop for any hedonist who sticks to himself. Investment banker Michael Unsworth who fell in love with Croatia more than twenty years ago, the owner and originator of the idea of Korcula becoming a hedonistic brand on the tourist map of the world patiently built a vacation spot in top, uniquely decorated apartments, and then added the enjoyment of food and wines take care of two Korčula Slavonians: Head Marko Gajski i sommelier Dražen Matković. He tries to use fresh and home-made ingredients that are not always easy to find, so he honestly answers that he is sometimes forced to look for the best that can be found anywhere in the world at that moment. He enjoys preparing seafood specialties, but his love is still related to Slavonia and he considers the black Slavonian pig (fajferica) a food that is a treat for every chef because the possibilities of use and processing techniques are incredible. Like Marko, Vjeko has established his own network of suppliers of fish and organic food on Murter and Kornati, where everyone knows him, and often with his friend and chef of the Opat restaurant on Kornati, Ante Božikov, he cooks together to bring guests closer to traditional Murter and Kurnat recipes. . The basic prerequisites for membership for restaurants and chefs are high professional standards and creative cuisine, so it is not surprising that the list includes Korcula’s fine dining restaurant Lesic Dimitri and chef Marko Gajski, and Murter tavern Bob in which the chef Vjeko Basic. True food lovers from whom they make top gourmet delights have rightly found themselves on this prestigious list, and their magical world of gastronomy is an experience that will not be forgotten and will be retold for a long time… Along with JRE, Dimitri Lešić Palace has been a member of a renowned association since 2013 Relais & Chateaux which under the motto All around the world, unique in the world has been awarding the most prestigious family hotels, their restaurants and chefs for more than 60 years, and has been on the Michelin list of recommendations since last year. List of listed restaurants JRE Croatia (in alphabetical order): Vjeko Basic, chef (photo by Facebook @konobabobamurter) Vjeko Bašić: Blacksmith’s Carpaccio (photo by Facebook @konobabobamurter) The changes of the seasons are clearly visible on Bob’s table, not only on land but also under the sea. Monkfish is Vjek’s favorite, whether on broth, in white wine or shrimp and truffle sauce surrounded by homemade polenta with capers and sun-dried tomatoes. But when it’s the season, grilled cuttlefish or squid polenta in Bobi is a great recommendation – because Vjeko doesn’t complicate things in the kitchen and sticks to that rule even when preparing carpaccio or sushi, using modern culinary techniques with a refined feel for presenting dishes. Vjeko Basic was declared chef in 2018 in the selection of the prestigious Gault & Millau guide, and the Bob tavern is not only on their list of recommendations but also on Michelin’s list of restaurants that should not be missed. Young restaurateurs from Europe, an association of the most creative chefs and gastronomically ambitious restaurants from 15 European countries and Australia at the beginning of this year got two new members from Croatia, so now JRE Croatia has 15 members (more than 360 in total)!

Loading… Harry Redknapp does not think his former club Tottenham should rush into the transfer market, despite the loss of key forward Harry Kane. Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho England captain Kane suffered a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring on New Year’s Day and is expected to be out of action until April. His absence leaves Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho without an obvious first-choice centre-forward, but Redknapp thinks spending big on a replacement would be a mistake. Speaking on The Transfer Show, Redknapp said: “I love Harry, what a player. “But they got away with it last year [when Kane was out from early April until the end of the season]. “[Heung-Min] Son, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, managed to find a way of playing. They got to the Champions League final.Advertisement “A lot of teams nowadays play without a central striker. “I don’t think I would dive in now and take somebody who, in three months time, is going to have to sit on the bench and will be surplus to requirements. “If I was Jose, I think I would sit tight. “They have unearthed a young kid out of the reserves this week [Japhet Tanganga], who came in and played all across the back four – he’s been great.

Former Ireland coach Adrian Birrell, who is now an assistant with the Proteas, will help provide the inside information for their first meeting since the last World Cup. South Africa coasted to a 131-run victory on that day but Birrell knows that Ireland have traded off more fancied teams underestimating them as they have made a habit of pulling off World Cup giant-killings. Already, Ireland have beaten West Indies at this tournament and are well placed to progress out of their group for the second time in the past three World Cups. Birrell coached Ireland for five years from 2002 and he believes that their World Cup record should surprise no-one given the developments they have made over the past decade. “They have a strong culture and play an attractive brand of cricket,” he said. “They have a number of good players and since probably 2005 a lot of their players are county players playing cricket full-time, they are playing professionally. “In every World Cup they seem to beat a full-member team. They did that in 2007 when they beat Pakistan and Bangladesh and tied with Zimbabwe. “There is the famous win at the 2011 World Cup against England and they have already beaten the West Indies here, it’s very realistic. “We are taking them seriously, they are a good team.” Birrell pin-pointed Ireland’s batting as their strength – especially their ability to chase after they ran down scores of 304 and 278 to beat West Indies and the United Arab Emirates respectively at this tournament. Press Association “They bat long and deep,” he said. “They know how to chase targets; four out of the top 10 World Cup chases are Ireland chases, three of them over 300 and two against full members.” That record is now four of 11, following Sri Lanka’s winning total of 312 for one against England on Sunday, but Birrell added: “We are fully aware of what they can do, I am probably more aware than most. We will be prepared come Tuesday.” Ireland are one of only three unbeaten teams at the World Cup – alongside India and New Zealand – but will be underdogs against South Africa after they pulverised the Windies by 257 runs last time out on the back of AB de Villiers’ supreme unbeaten 162 from 66 balls. The Proteas do have a couple of injury concerns, however, with JP Duminy (strain) and Vernon Philander (hamstring) both doubtful after they missed the Windies match last Friday. Porterfield admitted keeping De Villiers quiet was almost an impossible task, especially at the same batsman-friendly ground that Chris Gayle made the first-ever World Cup double-century last week. “It obviously will be a challenge,” he said. “You can sit all day and talk about him and different theories and plans and whatever, but you’ve got to stick it on with your best ball and how you go about things. “You don’t have to reinvent the wheel or change how you play against one player.” Ireland face a critical week in their bid to reach the quarter-finals with three games in eight days. After playing South Africa they meet Zimbabwe and India in quick succession. “I don’t think it’s a difficult (run),” he said. “There’s been quite a break between games and we always knew that this was the way that the group stage was going to work for ourselves, so we’ve been building up towards that. We’ve put in a lot of yards in the time we’ve had off – that’s going to stand you in good stead later on in the tournament when the games come thicker and faster.” Any element of mystery that Ireland might still retain against the full-member nations will be all but cancelled out when they meet South Africa in Canberra on Tuesday.
However, Khan pointed out that the CBN also demonstrated that it was not immune to the criticism that money supply was running well above target, and to try to reassure on this front, the CBN pledged to redouble efforts to bring narrow money growth back within its preferred benchmark range.“The proof is likely to lie in what actually ends up happening to money supply growth. All of the data, including CBN financing of the government, will be carefully scrutinised going forward. For now, the only clear takeaway is that there are no imminent plans for further FX liberalisation. FX will continue to be rationed, with key sectors being prioritised. There are no immediate plans for a real policy tightening as such.“Could the CBN cut rates later this year? While this remains our core view, much will also depend on the level of debate at the MPC. What is clear from the publication of the personal statements of MPC members from the previous November meeting is that achieving a consensus around future policy decisions may be difficult.“The MPC gets to decide – broadly – on the policy rates that are voted on (the MPR, the corridor around the MPR, the CRR, the liquidity ratio etc). But the ‘real action’ in terms of monetary policy may well have been the extent of money supply creation by the CBN, independent of these variables. Therein lies the policy dilemma,” she said.Also, in his note on the outcome of the MPC meeting, FXTM Research Analyst, Mr. Lukman Otunuga, said the accelerating inflation levels remained a major cause for concern and stumbling block to Nigeria’s economic recovery. This, according to him was however not enough to prompt the central bank to raise interest rates from the record 14 per cent level.“The fact that the nation is currently entangled in a fierce battle with cost-push inflation has created unease with concerns already heightened over the CBN running low on ammunition. It must be understood that the cause behind the incessant rise in consumer prices is the disparity between the official and black market exchange.“Many producers in Nigeria do not have the ability to purchase the naira on the official exchange and are forced to use the black market which inevitably will make the products more expensive. The additional costs are reflected in prices which punish consumers and spark higher inflation levels.“While most have suggested that the black market should not exist, it is the simple fundamentals of supply and demand that fuels this exchange. There is a possibility of the Central Bank of Nigeria accepting that the black market represents the true value of the naira which should encourage further devaluations on the official exchange this year in a bid to reclaim stability,” Otunuga stated.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Chief Economist, Africa, Standard Chartered Bank, Razia Khan has predicted that inflation in Nigeria would decelerate this year, on a pronounced base effect and better agriculture growth.Khan, while commenting on the outcome of Tuesday’s monetary policy committee meeting, in which the monetary policy rate and other policy instruments were retained, added that at the meeting, the committee signalled future policy easing was yet to come.She noted that while the MPC decision was largely expected, the key takeaway from the meeting was what was being signalled regarding future policy.“Some element of mixed messaging appears to be creeping in. On the one hand, we had a repeat of much of what we had heard last year: that the economy – although expected to recover – remains in a vulnerable position. Nonetheless, inflation is expected to decelerate on a pronounced base effect and better agriculture growth, and the CBN may even – at this meeting – have been signalling future policy easing yet to come,” the economist added.
This season, consistency has been the name of the game for the No. 1-ranked USC sand volleyball team. From top to bottom, all five Women of Troy pairs have produced quality wins in a steady fashion, and it was no different this weekend at the 2015 Pac-12 Invitational in Santa Monica. After beating Arizona State by a 4-1 score and sweeping No. 10-ranked Arizona 5-0 twice, the Women of Troy (24-0) claimed their second consecutive Pac-12 Invitational title and remained perfect on the season.In total, USC dropped just three sets over the course of the day, while their two 5-0 sweeps of Arizona upped their total to 16 sweeps on the year. Some milestones were met on the day as well, as the sophomore tandem of Nicolette Martin and Allie Wheeler won all three of their matches and recorded their 25th win, making them the fourth USC pair to do so this season. Furthermore, the No. 5 pair pair of senior Bria Russ and freshman Jenna Belton also won all three of their matches on Saturday and are now just one win away from also reaching that 25-win plateau. Russ herself finished the regular season with a perfect 24-0 mark in duals.USC welcomed four other up-and-coming conference teams to the Pac-12 Invitational this weekend, including No. 8 UCLA (9-4), No. 10 Arizona (15-3), Arizona State (6-11) and California (7-12). USC would start off against the winner of the “play-in” game between the No. 4-seed Arizona State Sun Devils and the No. 5-seed California Golden Bears. ASU prevailed in the earliest match of the day, pitting them against USC in the first round of the tournament. On the bottom of the bracket, No. 2-seed UCLA would face off against No. 3-seed Arizona, where the Wildcats came out victorious.In the first round of the double-elimination style bracket, the No. 1-seed Women of Troy started the morning off against the No. 4-seed Arizona State Sun Devils. USC struck first and got wins from their four and five pairs, as Belton and Russ at the five spot delivered an easy 21-5, 21-7 win over ASU’s Frances Giedraitis and Kwyn Johnson. Then, Martin and Wheeler at the four spot notched a 21-7, 21-13 win over Mia Rivera and McKenzie Willey. The sophomore pair of Kelly Claes and Sara Hughes would clinch the dual match over on court one, handing Bianca Arellano and Macey Gardner a 21-12, 21-11 defeat. The No. 3 pair of seniors Eve Ettinger and Meg Norton added a fourth point to the team total with a 21-9, 21-19 beating of Whitney Follette and Halle Harker, while the last pair to finish was USC’s No. 2 tandem of junior Alexa Strange and sophomore Sophie Bukovec. ASU’s Jordy Checkal and Bethany Jorgensen squeaked out a close 25-23 win in the first set and rode that momentum into the second, handing Strange and Bukovec a rare 25-23, 21-17 loss on the day. Still, USC registered a 4-1 win against the Sun Devils and moved on to the semifinals of team play.The Women of Troy would then face off against a ranked team in the No. 10 Arizona Wildcats. Belton and Russ would score USC’s first point at the five spot once again, recording a 21-10, 21-12 win over Arizona’s Hailey Devlin and Sarah Seiber. The next team to score a point would be the No. 1 pair of Claes and Hughes, who beat Arizona twins Madison Witt and McKenna Witt by an identical 21-14, 21-14 score. It would be the upperclassmen of USC that clinched the dual, as the No. 3 pair of Ettinger and Norton handed Emily Kiser and Rachel Rhoades a 21-8, 21-12 loss. Strange and Bukovec at the two spot would record their first win of the day with a 21-18, 21-17 win over Kaitlyn Leary and Kendall Polan, while Martin and Wheeler at the four spot completed the 5-0 sweep with a 21-12, 26-24 nail biter win over Arizona’s Taylor Arizobal and Allie Cook. The win over the Wildcats propelled USC into the title match, but the Women of Troy would have to wait to see who their next opponent would be.The Arizona Wildcats had to face off against the ASU Sun Devils in the loser’s bracket in order to have a chance to advance to the finals and face USC. Ultimately, the Wildcats prevailed over the rival Sun Devils by a 3-2 score. An hour after the Women of Troy had beaten the Wildcats, the two teams would meet again in the championship match of the Pac-12 Invite. It would be déjà vu for the Women of Troy, as once again USC swept the Wildcats, 5-0. This time, USC got on the board first with a win on court three, as Ettinger and Norton handed Kiser and Rhoades a 21-5, 21-13 defeat. Belton and Russ at the five spot defeated Devlin and Seiber 23-21, 21-7, while the No. 1 pair of Claes and Hughes clinched the victory and the Pac-12 Invite crown with a 21-18, 21-14 win over the Witts. Bukovec and Strange handed Leary and Polan a 21-17, 21-19 loss on court two, and Martin and Wheeler clinched the sweep with an exciting three set win over Arizobal and Cook by a 21-16, 21-23, 15-11 score. By the end of the day, USC added three more wins to their total to remain perfect on the season, while handing No. 10-ranked Arizona just their second and third losses all year.The Women of Troy are hoping to carry the momentum into the postseason when they head off to the AVCA Championships held in Gulf Shores, Alabama, in early May.
PHILADELPHIA — Eric Devendorf leaned in from the perimeter of the huddle and gave a simple order to his team, one fitting for the enigmatic former Syracuse guard.“This is where we step on they neck,” he said aggressively.Boeheim’s Army had stretched a three-point second-half lead to 14. It was the first time since the opening minutes 15th-seeded Basketball City NYC was comfortably in the rearview, and the SU alumni had a chance to put them out of sight completely following a timeout with under 12 minutes left in the game. And courtesy of a balanced scoring effort – Devendorf led seven players in double figures with 14 – second-seeded Boeheim’s Army eased to a 87-59 win in the opening round of The Basketball Tournament at Philadelphia University on Saturday night.They will play the Broad Street Bullies (Temple alumni) on Sunday at around 4:15 p.m. in the Round of 32.“When we got up 14, we just needed to extend that lead,” Devendorf said. “That’s what we did.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Published on July 16, 2016 at 9:11 pm Contact Matt: email@example.com | @matt_schneidman Boeheim’s Army jumped out to a 10-2 lead, punctuated by an emphatic slam from Hakim Warrick. The former SU forward known best for arguably the most important defensive play in program history (the game-sealing block with 0.7 seconds left in the 2003 national championship game) drove baseline and palmed the ball before posterizing an innocent defender and smirking while Brandon Triche grinned and flung both his hands in the air.“I just wanted to show ‘em I still got it,” Warrick said with a grin. “I think cause I’m old I only got a few a game, but I can still get up there.”Five players made multiple buckets in the first half, led by C.J. Fair’s nine points on 3-of-8 shooting. Fair flew cross-country from Las Vegas to Baltimore and attended his uncle’s wedding following his final NBA Summer League game on Friday night. The 2014 All-ACC first teamer scored in a variety of ways, including his patented “pivot on the low block, lean into the defender with his right shoulder and float a left-handed shot off the glass and in” that helped earn him consensus All-American honors two years ago.Basketball City wouldn’t go away, though, down only five at half, and Rhamel Brown delivered his own posterization on Rick Jackson to go along with what seemed to be a 3-point bucket in response to every Boeheim’s Army score.“We’ve got a lot of people that everybody recognize so everybody’s gonna step on our throat,” Baye Moussa Keita said. “We’re gonna have to do the same thing to them.”That’s exactly what they did, heeding Devendorf’s orders, and a tightly contested game became somewhat of a farce.After Terrence Roberts flushed a two-handed dunk, he made sure to hang on the rim a little extra and rip at the net on his way down. Devendorf urged the team to not relent so as to intimidate opponents. The frustration was tangible for Basketball City, as Tyran De Lattibeaudiere slammed the ball to the court with two hands heading into a timeout.And a game that was once in doubt finished anything but.
