From an art studio-cum-cafe to a Spanish wine bar to a butcher shop turned local watering hole, The Urban Grocer’s co-founder, Caitlin Zaino, explores the most innovative spots to quench your thirst in Geneva, Switzerland.
‘Always proper. Always mischievous. And occasionally adventurous.’ That’s probably not how most people would describe fudge – that quintessential grandmotherly treat. Most people, but probably not anybody who’s been lucky enough to bite into a piece of fudge from Burnt Sugar, a little British confectionary based in the south of England.
Most people wouldn’t be too thrilled to discover a set of false teeth floating in their gin and tonic. Most people, but not the folks over at Fred & Friends, apparently. The makers of Ninjabread men cookies and Russian doll measuring cups have now come up with ‘Frozen Smiles’ – little plastic trays that make […]
It’s no secret that we at The Urban Grocer have a soft spot for any marriage of food and art. And so upon learning about UK-based graphic designer and painter Joël Penkman, it was love at first site. Penkman’s delightful paintings take as their subject everything from an open can of Spam, to Stilton on a digestive, to black forest cake.
One of Sydney’s hottest live music venues got a little bit cooler last month with the opening of The Dip, a restaurant that offers a rad new take on the classic American diner.

My lil sis, Caitlin Zaino of The Urban Grocer is getting hitched. And as the Maid of Honor and resident style guru of the bridal party, we’ve spent a lot of time talking fashion particulars. Most notably, her ‘day of’ footwear.
The Dock Kitchen in London has the ever-evolving, work-in-progress, experimental feel of the temporary pop-up joints around town, but this restaurant stays put — physically, at least. Housed, for the indefinite future, in the old Virgin recording studios complex, the Dock Kitchen is an open space with a funky interior and striking glass walls. To the chic interior add a small daily changing lunch menu that gives way to weekly themed dinners inspired by the season.
Once upon a time there was a brew house in Colorado that concocted fairytale drafts in bewitching bottles. Known as the Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, this craft brewery honors two great German traditions: beer making and folklore.
