Love food but hate waste? This inventive new restaurant should be your next port of call
As with our wardrobes and travel, sustainability is a big deal in the food industry these days. Even so, it can be hard to tell who’s genuinely committed to positive change – but one place doing its bit is Warehouse. Situated in the grade II-listed building of The Conduit in Covent Garden, the new restaurant takes its name from the warehouse that supplied the area’s original fruit and vegetable market – and with Brendan Eades, former head chef at Silo (aka the world’s first zero-waste restaurant) at the helm, you know its sustainable ethos isn’t just window dressing.
“Sustainability runs through the heart of Warehouse, from the carefully-sourced food and preservation techniques used to create the seasonal menu, through to the reclaimed materials in the colourful interiors,” says Stylist’s digital entertainment editor, Christobel Hastings. “It makes for an imaginative culinary experience: we began with brined cod cheeks in crispy sourdough batter and moreish red kuri pumpkin skin wafers, washed down with champagne cocktails made with wild rosehips. Equally satisfying were the miso-glazed cabbage with roasted alliums, a pork chop in anchovy butter, smoky salt-baked potato mash and braised farm greens. The pièce de résistance, though, was dessert: a heavenly warm chocolate fondant with quince sorbet, and creamy vanilla rice pudding with damson puree. Sipping my cocktail to the mellow sounds of reggae, I couldn’t have been more content.” 6 Langley St, WC2H 9JA

This unique exhibition intricately charts the history, meaning and significance of our hair
If you thought there wasn’t anything particularly special about hair, it’s time to reconsider. Opening tomorrow, Dulwich’s Horniman Museum and Gardens delves into everything barnet-related via Hair: Untold Stories, a new exhibition that signposts the meaning and significance of hair around the world throughout the years – not only from an identity perspective, but as a substance used in mops, art, ceramics, clothing and jewellery.
A collaboration between the museum, anthropologist Emma Tarlo and Goldsmiths, the plethora of artefacts are varied and surprising – from a mid-20th century Bulgarian bridal hat to ‘hairy’ postcards from Germany and both historic and contemporary hair jewellery from Sweden. It also explores our complex relationship with – and society’s expectations of – what’s on our head, as well as the global hair trade. Finally, don’t miss the hair shop installation from cultural curator Korantema Anyimadu that explores the British experiences of Black women and non-binary people. You’ll never complain about a bad hair day again… 4 December-19 June 2022; free; London Rd, SE23; horniman.ac.uk
