Currently working on…

Having finished a marathon load of interviews with chefs for the Qatar Happening Dining Guide (publication imminent), here’s a sneak preview of what else is whirring around my brain this month…

A trip around the Virgin Health Bank cord blood bank, for Abode. A review of a “self-healing” class for Time Out. Oh, and a preview of the Doha Trade Fair for Qatar Happening.

Time to start putting those words to paper and print, methinks.
