It was named after a mining warden, Lionel Gee.[2] Recently Mount Gee came to prominence in 2008 - 2011 because of uranium exploration occurring in an area that was commonly (and mistakenly) believed at that time to be protected from all mineral exploration. This situation was altered in 2011 - 2012 when the Government of South Australia created the Arkaroola Protection Zone and passed the Arkaroola Protection Act (2012) which prohibits all mining activity in the Arkaroola Protection Zone.[3] Dakar Tour Guide, private tours in Dakar, Senegal by Oumar K.

2015 holiday. Philosophy. Why did BlackBerry crumble? Florence’s best-kept secret : Arts & Architecture, Florence. How to cook the perfect gratin dauphinois. The dauphinois, a rich gratin of sliced potatoes and cream, is not, unlike the deep-fried potato profiteroles that so flummoxed MasterChef contestants last year, named after royalty - but in my opinion it deserves to be.

How to cook the perfect gratin dauphinois

Unless, of course, such an association would lead to its extinction - a tragedy indeed. It's an unabashedly decadent dish that makes an excellent partner to spring lamb in this decidedly wintery weather, that I'm focusing on today. I've found it more difficult than it looks: previous attempts have been variously plagued by undercooked and soggy potatoes, dryness and gruesomely curdled cream. So how do you make a gratin dauphinois fit for a … president? If it's good for Warren Buffett, is it good for you? What set Warren Buffett off to become the world's richest investor, worth something like $65 billion - or maybe it's trillion - was reading a book by Ben Graham called The Intelligent Investor. ''Of all the investments I ever made, buying Ben's book was the best,'' he recently wrote to shareholders in his US-based company Berkshire Hathaway, which has been returning 20 per cent a year since 1965.
