Equal steaks

Equal steaks

What happens to the feathers of chickens killed to make nuggets? To the wool of lambs slaughtered for Sunday roasts? Or the hide of cows used for meat?

Hang on, we can answer that last one. At least, we can if you live in New York. Husband and wife team Andrew Tarlow and Kate Huling are a restaurateur and leather goods specialist respectively. They both require one common ingredient – cattle – so they use the same cows.

Soak up your sins

Many drunken nights end in kebab ecstasy. But what about the morning after? Do you Detox with a fruit juice and a salad? Or do you ‘Retox’ by chowing down on more unhealthy nosh? A café has cropped up in East London where you can do both. (But not at the same time, obviously.)

Print your cake and eat it

You’ve seared the scallops. You’ve cooked a steak. Now, you could be printing dessert. We give you the incredible… Foodini.

The brainchild of Barcelona start-up Natural Machines, Foodini is designed to cut down the process necessary in certain dishes. It can print your nosh according to precise measurements of height, width and depth – unfortunately, you still have to cook it yourself.

Get a sugar fix in Soho

The ladies of our London office are aquiver with anticipation for the beginning of September. Patrick Cox, the shoe supremo, is dusting down some of his mum’s favourite homebake recipes and collaborating with Eric Lanlard, the French patisserie superhero. Cox, Cookies and Cake is set to open on Brewer Street at the beginning of September.


The interior of the shop takes more than a little design inspiration from saucy Soho shops, with a glossy black floor and spangly walls. We’ll soon see if it finds a place in the ladies’ hearts along with Snog, the frozen yoghurt joint also on Brewer Street, and good old Hummingbird Bakery on Wardour Street.

Strap in before you tuck in

August in Edinburgh is always a feast of culture, comedy, theatre and more but now they’re making mealtimes a real event too.

Over in the pop-up Sky Gardens, diners are strapped in to one of the 22 seats, before the whole table is hoisted 100 feet into the air. The sitting lasts for half an hour, giving people long enough to tuck in and enjoy the views of the castle and the city skyline.

Season’s eatings


If your office is anything like ours, you’ll already be ploughing through the Christmas chocolates. If you’re looking for something to savour, how’s about Artisan du Chocolat’s latest offering? Their chocolate snowglobes will make very toothsome decorations, if you can hold yourself back long enough to appreciate their kitsch good looks. Here’s how Gerard Coleman and Anne Weyns, the chocolatier and business brains behind the atelier, describe them: ‘Marvellous edible decorations, shake them (not too hard!) and you can hear the caramel, cocoa nibs and biscuit bits inside soon to be eaten. Our globes are made in milk or dark chocolate and decorated in edible silver and gold with a snowy London landscape, Santa sleigh or winter trees. Unfortunately they are too fragile to send but reserve your adorable and delicious kitsch globes to pick up in our Chelsea, Notting Hill or Selfridges shops from Nov 1.’
