Juma: A Taste of Iraq

SEEN is delighted to see that Juma’s Iraqi themed supper clubs are coming to the noted ‘gastro-hub’ Cuckoo in London N1 throughout September. Of course, we’re spoilt here with all these lovely pop-ups, but you should avail yourselves of a mouth-watering cuisine that’s seldom available, though plenty of news comes from that region certainly is.

Philip Juma, who boasts English-Irish-Iraqi ancestry himself, wants to create a bridge between cultures and traditions by that most ancient of rituals: breaking bread with friends.

We are promised a full à-la-carte Iraqi menu and you can anticipate that SEEN will be reviewing.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
