Durban Spice Supper Club
I’d never been to a supper club before the Friday night we darkened the door of Shabir and Sarah Ally of Durban Spice. I’ve always found the idea odd because it feels like the rules should be different in someone’s house – if you got asked to take your shoes off on your way into a restaurant you’d have every right to be a little miffed – and what if the food’s rank? How could anyone feign a ‘customer is always right’ shtick when you’re a guest in their home?

Coming soon to a Motorway near You
The quality of ingredients matched with the brand's personality at such reasonable prices is a triple threat that is to provide a welcome alternative to your standard gut-destroying fast food options. In all, Mollie's does exactly what it needs to for the one-time customer and is full of enough quirks and comforts to have travellers reroute to include it.

By definition a kitchen garden or potager is where vegetables, fruit and herbs are grown. I often include a cutting garden (cut flowers for the house) as well in my designs if space allows. When designing, there are two key things to bear in mind: practicality and beauty. The space needs to be able to produce an abundant crop and if the layout and structure can also be beautiful then it can be closer to the house and good to look at.

Food and Drink you can feel Good About
After a chance meeting at the Didcot Street Fair I find myself on the way to meet Simon Collison, a man who knows more about the UK's food and drink industry than anyone you're likely to meet. I was there to discover the ethos of a man whose enterprise, Foodylicious, had caught our attention. He's an extremely affable chap, with a generous smile and genuinely enthusiastic tone. I first ask him of the route of his career thus far and discover a raft of leading brands that he was responsible for bringing to the UK consumer.
