Triple Olympic gold medalist and fastest man in history Usain Bolt has announced that he will open a new Jamaican bar, restaurant, and “late lounge,” called Tracks & Records, on Middlesex Street in east London on Wednesday 10 October. It wants to offer “an authentic slice of Jamaica in the heart of the capital,” a short walk from Liverpool Street station in the heart of the City.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. led pot stocks higher after Coca-Cola Co. said it’s eyeing the cannabis drinks market, becoming the latest beverage company to tap into surging demand for marijuana products as traditional sales slow. Coca-Cola says it’s monitoring the nascent industry and is interested in drinks infused with CBD — the non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that treats pain but doesn’t get you high. The Atlanta-based soft drinks maker is in talks with Canadian marijuana producer Aurora Cannabis to develop the beverages, according to a report from BNN Bloomberg Television.
After Wagyu, wasabi and Red King Crab, Taiko, the acclaimed modern Asian restaurant Taiko of the Conservatorium hotel in Amsterdam, has extra big news this year! The new ingredient of the year is soy and Chef Schilo van Coevorden has created a completely new ‘The Circle of Soy menu’ with it.
Skye Gyngell creates a kit containing “everything foodies need for the ultimate Instagram-worthy content”. The celebrated chef behind one of London’s essential restaurants has teamed up with an Italian pasta brand to produce the world’s first ingredients kit designed specifically with Instagram in mind. The kits will come in six variants — each of them containing a different kind of tortelloni and the high-end produce required to create “a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.” Customers can look forward to flavour combinations like spinach and ricotta tortelloni with datterini, mint, and olives; chicken and smoked pancetta tortelloni with radicchio and Parmigiano Reggiano; and prosciutto cotto and mozzarella tortelloni with girolles and marjoram.
