Heston Blumenthal seems to be sponsoring Christmas these days. In this week’s Time Out magazine, the madcap chef tells us all about his fast food joint at Heathrow, his new TV show ‘Heston’s Great British Food’, what he’ll be cooking up this Xmas and why he still likes a sloppy pizza. In other food news, we also chatted to another food pioneer, Danish chef René Redzepi, about how his philosophy has changed the way we all eat. As if that wasn’t enough, the legendary Alan Partridge has given us his 2013 highlights, we infiltrate the Freemasons, delve into our obsession with commuting and bring you the pick of December’s seasonal treats.
We also peek behind the scaffolding into the newly spruced up Kenwood House, chat to ‘Sideways’ director Alexander Payne, get excited about the Independent Label Market, recreate that warm Ibiza feeling, delve into the ICA’s Bloomberg New Contemporaries show (and find out that it’s a load of pants) and get punch drunk in Edition Hotel’s new Punch Room. Oh and there’s tonnes of other great ideas for things to do, as usual. Enjoy!
