#FoodandDrink | Sustainability at the Heart for New TPH of Chelsea

Yogesh Datta, Proprietor and Head Chef of The Painted Heron in Chelsea, is launching a new concept on the former site, with plant-based dishes taking centerstage and responsibly-sourced food and sustainability at its heart for late January 2018. After recognising a need for an Indian restaurant that could cater to a more health conscious clientele, Datta has created a totally new ethos for the menu. Modern and welcoming with a stripped-back décor, the reformed emphasis at the newly-named TPH of Chelsea will draw inspiration from the Indian subcontinent.

#SWInspires | Speak It Into Existence

Over the years I have witnessed cliché cycles within my field of work, which become popular and are regurgitated across the public speaking circuits, pulpits, conferences and eventually make their way around peoples social media streams and timelines. They die out, new ones take their place, and eventually they become popular again in season. One such saying is “Speak it into existence”. Books like ‘The Secret’ and many others speak on The Law of Attraction and the notion that you can create your life with the content that you give the world through the power of your words. Some use the term ‘karma’, others ‘what goes around comes around’, others believe in the power of affirmations, and some are just superstitious.

When I considered the power that our words contain, I wasn’t too interested in how our words impact tangible things, like a persons feelings, or a response driven statement, I was rather interested in what actually happens when I speak, even if I am all alone and can only bear witness to my own words. I look at my own faith and my understanding that God spoke and created the world. By speaking He called things into existence. When God created man and woman, He created us in His image and gave us dominion over the earth. He endowed us with a power to “speak”. So does this mean that if I say I want something, and speak it enough it will come to me? Many hold this view. However, I believe that while our words do indeed have power, our desires will not be fruitful if they are not in line with God’s will for our lives.

#FoodandDrink | ‘Thai Square – You’ve Got to Dine Here’

On a cold February Tuesday night, I headed down to Thai Square in Islington to do a review. After a long day I was ready to tuck into some good food and Thai Square did not disappoint. I’ve been to Thailand a couple of times and enjoy the country, food and culture, so when I was offered the opportunity to review Thai Square I was not going to turn it down. As my sister has recently embarked on her vegetarian journey, I thought it would be great to bring her along and get her take on the vegetarian offerings.
