A good bottle of wine, a couple of cans of tuna in the pantry, and a few odds and ends in your refrigerator are all you need for a gourmet meal to kick off your evening of indulgence.


Something light

James Deakin a well known TV Host, multi-media motoring journalist, writer and a blogger. His life is every man's dream to have.
But with his multifaceted persona and the hectic schedule that he keeps, it’s his being a family man, a loving husband and father to three kids, two boys and a girl, that he values the most. It is no wonder then that Technomarine chose to honor James, a truly exemplary dad, this Father’s Day.
