Cinema in London

London Film Festival

There are many things to love about autumn: fresh black opaques with ankle boots, dark evenings and twinkly London lights, how red wine tastes better when there’s a nip in the air outside. Another thing is London Film Festival.

On the program are some super talks such as a technical animation masterclass with Dreamworks or The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and political journalist Maziar Bahari debating freedom of speech. Film-wise, we like the look of Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner, about the 19th century artist, Love Is Strange, a bittersweet gay love story set in New York City starring Alfred Molina and Whiplash, one young man’s pursuit for drumming perfection.

URBAN FARMING

It’s that time when we take a renewed look at our city gardens, or more likely, complete lack thereof, and daydream about the good life, planting seedlings and a glut of personal homegrown veg in a couple months time.  With allotment waiting lists having gone from so so so long to just plain closed, you’re coming to need to come up with some better ideas.

There’s a proliferation of folk with clever ideas to get growing in one of the world’s biggest cities (almost, we’re up there, more or less).  Here are few spots to check out for some inspiration to get urban farming on your little slice of London (or get guerrilla on someone else’s): Eco-Thriving, GR2Food, and Green Walls.

    BEAUTY OF BERMONDSEY FILM COMPETITION

    Once, not so long ago, our little wedge of London was a scrapbook of slums, rundown factories and destitution.  In fact, Bermondsey has pretty much always been a hotbed of disrepute – home to the most undesirable industries of industrial Britain, with the unfortunate folk to staff them. Anyhow. Now it’s not. There’s something, however, [...] Read More

HEIRLOOM TOMATO SALAD

4 heirloom tomatoes
1 tbsp goats curd
8 black olives
½ stick of celery
1 tbsp white wine vineagar
Shot of olive oil

Slice the tomatoes. On the bed of your dish add a dollop of goats curd and then lay the tomatoes on top.

Chop the olives, removing the stones, and put them on a baking sheet in a warm oven (100 degrees) to dry out and intensify their flavour. Once finished, crumble olives on top of the tomatoes.

Thinly dice the celery and toss with the olive oil and white wine vinegar to dress the salad, and top the salad with a little rock salt and celery cress or celery leaves.

LETTERS OF LIFE & LOVE

Table Sixteen has been at The Garrison since the beginning.  It has drawers and slowly these drawers started to fill up with little notes, then bigger notes, doodles, confessions, full-blown narratives.  And now, we’re going to start joining them all together to see what story they tell.  Instagram yours:  #table16
