Featured, Food
The beautiful reality of ‘Just Bread’: baking workshops and a small cafe bakery chain with a conscience enabling refugee women in London to support themselves.   The sunlight gleams through the thick glass of the large windows, when I step in the Roasthouse in Poplar Union.

Film & TV
The actor became famous for his roles in films such as Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but now it seems that he’s taken a step back from these roles to become the biggest weirdo to ever emerge from Hollywood. He’s confused us a few times with what can only be described as shocking and incredibly funny behaviour, but we love it. Here are eight times that Shia LaBeouf (Or LaBae as he has now been named here, by yours truly) really caught our attention.

Chefs of Tomorrow: The Future of Young Talent

Food
Chefs of Tomorrow is a project that aims to enhance young chefs by giving them the ability to showcase their talent and work with real professionals in the field. The project runs as four events through the year and there are 16 chefs taking part.  Last Saturday we visited the first event of the year, which was held at Druid Street Market and there we spoke to the co-founder of the project and some of the young chefs.
