Working with the suppliers we work with on a daily basis. Their passion, hard work and ‘up-for-anything’ attitude never goes unnoticed or unappreciated. What we see at events is only the half of it - there is an insane amount of love and creativity that goes into creating the food, drink and services that these guys offer, so it’s a pleasure chatting with them, knowing how much each event means to them and their businesses.

I can sing the first few verses of ‘Despacito’ in Spanish, very impressive for when it comes on twice a year...
Middle Eastern, without a doubt. The incredible flavours, simple ingredients and passion that goes into making the food is what makes it for me, that and the culture that surrounds it - sitting with friends and family with a mountain of hot, fresh pittas, velvet-smooth hummus and freshly fried falafel, is my happy place.
Cooking for a Burns Night themed lunch at Conde Nast with two Masterchef finalists. Major imposter syndrome.
Picking up small bits of cardboard off the floor without using my hands...in a game fondly known as The Cereal Box game. It’s a thing, I promise. Best not to ask too many questions.
Cue Point - for Middle Eastern food like you’ve never had it before, Laura Maclean - for the most stunning photos, Mix & Muddle (for some serious cocktails) and Humble Crumble (for the best darn crumble you’ll ever have).
