Looking back on the January Furniture Show

Posted on Jul 5, 2016 in Little Tree Furniture

Today we are having a trip down memory lane to the January Furniture Show at the NEC.

 

This was our first ever big show, with a full-on Little Tree Furniture display. We are still so pleased with how it all came together and how it looked that we wanted to share some more photos with you.

January Furniture Show Display

The January Furniture Show was hard work and extremely long days. But it was such a good experience meeting old and new friends and colleagues from all over the country. The January Furniture Show is considered the most important and comprehensive event in the furniture industry here in the UK.

January Furniture Show Industrial

The January Furniture Show usually have more than 450 exhibitors, which includes all the main UK and many international furniture brands. We still can’t believe that we have exhibited our Little Tree Furniture pieces at such a massive show and that we got so many wonderful comments and feedback on our display and furniture. The January Furniture Show is a super platform for showcasing our handcrafted, quality items, and we are very much looking forward to next year.

The Perfect Mango Lassi

Posted on Jun 22, 2016 in Recipes

While we are waiting for summer to kick in, we wanted to share with you this cooling yoghurt drink from India. Lassi is a refreshing drink, perfect to cool down with on a hot summer’s day or when you just fancy something tasty!

 

Mango Lassi

Traditional lassi is a savoury drink, a blend of yoghurt, water and spices. Sweet lassi usually contains sugar and fruits as well as yoghurt, water and spices. There is probably as many recipes for Lassi as there are families in India, so we looked around for a quick, tasty recipe.

With mango lassi gaining popularity worldwide, we figured we should try it for ourselves. After a quick look around the internet and trying a few recipes, we quite liked this mango lassi recipe.

 

The perfect mango lassi

(one serving)

What you need:

1 very ripe mango, or about 200g mango pulp

 

5 ice cubes

 

125 ml chilled plain whole milk yoghurt, or low fat natural yoghurt

 

Pinch of ground cardamom, or to taste

 

Splash of milk or water (this is optional and depends on the consistency you want)

 

½ tsp soft light brown sugar (this is optional and depends on how sweet the mango you use is and how sweet you like your drink. You can also use 1 tablespoon of honey to sweeten it)

 

Squeeze of lime juice (again, this is optional if you want to sharpen your lassi. If you find the tang of the yoghurt sufficient you will not need this)

 

How to make it:

Peel the mango (here is a fast way to peel a mango using a glass) and add both the flesh and juice (which will be at the bottom of the glass) to a blender.

 

Add the ice cubes and whiz until it is all finely chopped, then add the yoghurt and cardamom to taste. Blitz again until smooth.

 

If you think it is still too think, you can add a little milk or water to make it thinner.

 

Taste the lassi, and if you think it needs sugar / honey, then add this. Now is also the time to add lime juice if you wish.

 

Pour into a glass and enjoy!
