No hate for the humble plate

Whether it’s in a shoe or on a horn, restaurants have really shoehorned in new ways to serve food in recent years. For some customers, food served on a slate instead of a plate was hard to stomach.

Toss and turmeric

Golden is more than just colour – turmeric is having a golden moment on menus, cropping up in Pret a Manger’s turmeric tonic, The Modern Pantry’s margaritas, and in Granger & Co’s roast lamb. And it’s no surprise that it’s caught the attention of food fashionistas. Native to southern Asia, and long used in traditional […]
