Opening Soon: Kala Thai

At the head of the Kala Thai operation is chef and businessman Tom Saengthong. Tom, who hails from Bangkok, will be supported by his wife and a team of four Thai chefs, as his restaurant prepares to open from midday until late seven days a week. This will also open up job opportunities in the bar and front-of-house departments...

Joe Quinlan & Kalem Brinkworth, Founders: The Bonbon Boys

Kalem and I have known each other for eight years, and we've always wanted to do a business together. We have worked with each other in the past, so we know what one another's styles are like. But it took us a while to figure out exactly what we wanted to do and what the product was. And so, during lockdown there was a lack of pick-and-mix -- for two people who love sweets, that's not very good...

Matt England, Founder: Sun Rum

About five years ago a friend and I went to a gin tasting evening and we were both at the point in our careers where we were both stable but were getting a bit restless with wanting to create something for ourselves; work for ourselves. So, I dipped my toes in spirits, manufacturing and retailing with gin and I loved the idea of it. But I felt the gin category was a very saturated market and I wanted to create something unique. I looked at a lot of data in regard to trends and other styles of drink and rum kept shouting out at me...

Laura Hardwick, Baker

Even though cupcakes are my biggest stressor (because I always worry they're not perfect), I love the satisfaction of seeing a box of cakes ready to leave. I love making customers' ideas come alive in cake form. I wouldn't say I have a 'favourite', but I think my Coffee and Walnut cakes are always a big hit, and I make a mean Lemon Drizzle...!

Jack Quinney, Bartender / Mixologist

When it comes to cocktail creation, I just test flavours and see how they work, and then add from there. I don't like overcomplicating drinks or adding too many flavours. Alternatively, sometimes I think of a name for the cocktail and design it from there...

Northbourne Pub Called “Pillar of the Community” During Lockdown

It’s all a bit surreal, isn’t it? Our streets, once rife with the hustle-and-bustle of commuters, shoppers and local food stalls, now a ghost town. But not everyone is staying inside. The Crown in Northbourne has a long history of fundraising and a charitable attitude within the community, and COVID-19 hasn’t slowed them down...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...
