Find the golden chips at Chez Gerard

Would you believe this week is National Chip Week (and no the irony of the overlap with LFW isn’t lost on us) and while the (too) skinny model debate (yawn) continues to rage, the concurrent controversy over who invented the chip (the French or the Belgians) also shows no sign of abating. “Can you imagine asking for a side order of Belgian fries?” snorts Alain Bourbon, head chef at Bishopsgate’s Chez Gérard, which brought 'Steak Frites' to London back in 1975. “They may be laying claim to paternity in Belgium, but even the academics there admit there is little proof.

Paper & Cup

Following the success of the Shoreditch original last year, Paper & Cup, the stylish coffee-cum-book-shop run by the Spitalfields Crypt Trust has just launched its second venue in east London’s up and coming St Paul’s Way district.

I Heart Diet Coke

Coke has always loved a limited edition and this year is no different with Marc Jacobs taking on the role of pimping up the Diet Coke cans. Three designs have just been revealed for each decade that Diet Coke has been on our shelves, each headlined with a classic ‘I Heart…’ slogan. Each decade echoes traits from the time; the 80s showing an empowered woman, the 90s showing a fashion trendsetter and the 00s is along the same lines as Marc Jacobs own spring/summer 13 collection. Jacobs himself is quoted as saying "Diet Coke is an icon… and I love […]

Gossip at the Grammys

In the midst of the old school movie glamour of the Baftas the Grammys often get forgotten (especially as they are on the same night). However, they can be more fun to watch, filled with more risqué outfits and diva antics. Chris Brown caused a significant amount of controversy as normal. Brown did a ‘Kayne’ in refusing to stand for Frank Ocean when he won the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Record and Adele was seen, allegedly, publicly calling him out for it. Katy Perry (also allegedly) refused to sit near her friend Rihanna in protest to the young singer […]
