truth and lies

If you‘ve never been to La La Land, don’t go. It’s where the world’s crackpot leaders and their henchmen hang out. And they all seem to be on something that’s making them behave in the same weird way. Tremendously powerful leaders around the globe have discovered fake news. The truth is whatever they want it to be. No matter what the courts may rule or how much the media may huff or the people puff in protest, these guys know they’re safe because they have a power base of media and supporters who accept the deceit. They use fake news to exploit grievances and stoke animosities. Goodbye democracy, hello another term or two in power. To them truth is fake news and lies are alternative truths. But the problem is…

Consider it: you’re putting two 20-somethings on a coffee meeting or call and having them make nice while one quizzes the other. Hailey Clauson, though, is the good kind of date (figuratively speaking – she does has a boyfriend). Bubbly isn’t the word, but laughter never stops for the disarmingly normal Californian native. Especially when I catch her hunting for cell signal and running errands in New York with the go-lucky energy of…

master of the dark arts

‘Darkness inspires me. I write recipes in the dark, so that I can visualise them’ I love using ingredients that are very boring and simple, some untouched and some unheard of.’ What chef Angelo Scirocco does with those ingredients, though, is far from usual. Describing his style of food as ‘urban garde cuisine’, the 2016 Eat Out Nederburg Rising Star is constantly evolving his offerings, striving to be at the top of the game. He did that to great effect at Urbanologi, and now having left, is cooking up two new eateries, one ‘quite approachable but with a good edge’, and the other an ‘avant garde restaurant that will explore the unimaginable’. You only need to step into the industrially chic Urbanologi in the heart of Jo’burg’s CBD to get a sense of…
