I didn’t realise that we have a fantastic chocolatier on our doorstep and with Easter just around the corner you really should read our lead article about local chocolatier Graham Hogan at ‘Kentish Chocolates’, our Easter Egg hunt suggestions and Easter gift guide also give you Easter inspiration.
On top of the Easter fun, this month we have interviews with two inspiring Maidstone people – Artist Cas Holmes and Author Ian Porter – as well as a look behind the scenes at how ‘Enterprise Foundation’ works, a look at the leading talent at UCA, business savvy advice from Mike Prior from Sherlock Accountants, the planning of Maidstone’s Fashion Week, a sneaky look at the newest local art gallery ‘trackside.contemporary’ in Aylesford, our What’s On Guide, food column SCOFF & QUAFF by Jules Serkin, my review on The Hengist restaurant – lunch cooked by celebrity chef Petrus Madutlela and much,much more…oh and my hunt for Maidstone’s best hot chocolate is sated – find out who won!
We have a new member of the team at Inside Maidstone Magazine. Richard Torble is our official photographer specialising in headshot and portrait photography and you can read his profile below – welcome on-board Richard!
