It is also the headquarters of Lyndey's new production company which produced Lyndey & Blair's Taste of Greece.

Lyndey launched the Brilliant Cut Knife, the first time she has put her name to a product. With world leading technology - diamonds for strength, silver for anti-bacterial properties, ceramic for sharpness and titanium for flexibility and resistance to corrosion - it is incredibly sharp and light.
