A slice of colourful, chic Bangkok life has just landed in London, courtesy of Fitzrovia’s Greyhound Cafe. Once a fashion house, the brand has morphed into a fun-loving cafe (and Thai lifestyle phenomenon) with 17 restaurants across Asia. Now, Londoners get to try the ‘Thai food with a twist’ like Pad Thai with scallops, ‘Complicated Noodles’ – a DIY taco served with lettuce leaves and noodle sheets to wrap around pork and lime sauce – and deep fried chicken wings marinated in fish sauce. It’s hot and spicy like a Bangkok street market, and takes London Thai food in a welcome new direction.

No need to stroll around the callette of San Barnaba or Cannaregio to get a taste of your gelato the Venetian way. These gelato spoons for Yali designed by Marie-Rose Kahane bring something of the colourful Italian ice cream display to your everyday table. Handmade in Murano using the lampworking or vetro a lume technique they hark back to a centuries old tradition and with playful character could easily complement any table setting from most baroque to the most minimal. In all combinations of vibrant colours, dip them in honey, jellies and jams or just collect them all.
