GILL MELLER Chef and food writer It was after college that Gill first took an interest in cooking – ‘I fell into the kitchen out of financial necessity at first’, he admits – working in pubs, cafés and restaurants before setting up an organic catering business in Dorset. He has been part of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage team for 11 years, and balances teaching there with his own projects, including food writing. ‘I like to think my cooking is a reflection of my surroundings.

When Cath Kidston stepped down from her eponymous brand in 2014, she thought it would be a chance to have a break, decorate her house, visit galleries and travel. But she soon realised she was missing the thing she had been doing ever since starting her company in 1993 – designing. ‘I had all these ideas and nowhere to go with them,’ she says. In 2018, Cath set up Joy of Print, a studio that offers consultancy work for brands, while also providing a creative outlet for her own designs, which she can develop into products in partnership with other small businesses. ‘I have this mad encyclopedia of prints in my head.’ For her first collaboration, she has joined forces with the maker of hand-crafted lampshades Rosi de Ruig. ‘I’ve been…
