The 40 minute challenge at Kingsleys

By Rahima Saikal

I don’t know about you, but lunchtime on a working day is always a conundrum for me. I only have an hour, so do I eat something bleak from the industrial suburb I work in, or do I venture out to the city, take 15 minutes getting there, 10 minutes to find a car park, 10 minutes to reach the eating destination and then another 40 minutes eating a meal?
This year my new year’s resolution was to make sure I took a proper break and ventured into the city more, but not four weeks back into the swing of things and I more often than not find myself opting for the quicker, easier option of staying close by.
That’s why I was excited to test out Kingsley’s 40-minute express menu...

The mood wall

Meet the mood wall.
Incase you've ever wondered about the creative process that goes behind the 'feel' of each issue of In the City magazine, the wall is an excellent sample.
This wall belongs to the workspace of Mils, our head designer, and represents a tangible manifestation of the process. Pieces of inspiration come together and soon, a pattern emerges, and this is how the magazine creates itself - almost organically.

Oops - sorry Omar!

Hi, I'm Dione. That's me on the right, adjusting the flash to point adequately at the subject, Omar Musa. Unfortunately for him, just as he obligingly peered straight into the flash to help instruct me, it went off.
And that's how we almost blinded one of the nation's finest spoken poetry artists.

A case of the Casey fever

Casey Donovan - what a doll. Perhaps it's my sense of pride, but I always get my back up a little when I'm sent to cover the celebrity yarn.
Aloof air in place, I was ready to show this 20-something diva that not all us mere mortals get stars in our eyes in the presence of fame.
Half an hour later I walked out of the Canberra Theatre Centre feeling like I'd met a kindred spirit.
Eloquent, media-savvy and just plain lovely is Casey Donovan. I kept having to remind myself all through the interview just how young she was, and again that night when she treated a VIP crowd to a rendition of Heard It through the Grapevine. I'm not sure how someone with such a set of pipes can be so down to earth, but I hope the lesson sticks after this particular brush with fame.

Cream of a very tasty crop

The delights highlighted in the 20 Summer Treats spread in In the City summer 2010/11 made our mouths water; perhaps none so profusely as Dieci e Mezzo's macaroons.

French pastry chef Eric Menard whips up the mouth-watering treats at the premises on a daily basis.

Slightly crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside, the gentle tang of the creamy fruit filling will drive your senses wild. 

There are four summery flavours to choose from in these brightly coloured and perfectly rounded French delights:  Mandarin, strawberry, passionfruit and pistacchio.

At $4 each, they're the perfect treat to enjoy in the shiny new setting of Dieci e Mezzo at the bottom of ActewAGL House on the corner of Bunda and Mort Streets.

Make sure you partake of the article in In the City summer 2010/11.
