Turntable Kitchen

Turntable Kitchen: quite a cool site that that ‘connects music and food’… Run by a couple (Matthew and Kasey) from San Francisco… In their words… ‘feature recipes with a focus on local, fresh ingredients, hand-selected ‘Musical Pairings,’ album reviews and musings on our city livin’ and country hoppin’ adventures. Most importantly, we aim to introduce food lovers to music and vice versa’… There is so much on their site that some serious time is needed to be invested… Seen originally via the always awesome Wit & Delight

Umbro HQ – Love

A terribly lazy post, seen via What Makes Us in my usual daily/weekly sweep of favourite blog links…

Really lovely work from Love, (based in Manchester) for Umbro HQ, signage + generally making the work place a space to  ‘inspire and motivate’. Images via Love.

A little extra is that Love has a blog as well
