This summery stone fruit is having a savoury revival, thanks to London's restaurants

Despite often being found on top of your morning granola, baked into a cobbler or in a celebratory bellini, peaches have typically been kept out of the savoury section of restaurant menus – but keen foodies will have noticed that they're now being promoted from dessert to entrees and mains in many London restaurants. Often grilled or roasted and nestled next to soft Italian cheese, the newly-opened Rarebit in Elephant & Castle pairs the fruit with creamy burrata and thyme, while Soho's open-fire restaurant Firebird combines peach with ricotta, hazelnuts and prosciutto. Over in Kensington, Maria G's serves white peaches with stracciatella – with East London sandwich mecca Dom's Subs' also loading up this super-sized sarnie with the oozy cheese, courgettes, tomatoes, basil and peach. 

And it's not just dairy that the fruit pairs so well with. The Waterhouse Project and Luca match it with sweet Scottish lobster and monkfish crudo respectively, with Bloomsbury's Honey & Co and Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill in Piccadilly serving fresh peach-laced salads. But for something different, head to Knightsbridge's new contemporary West African restaurant Isibani for its chicken kiev with confit gizzards, banga sauce and peaches. Inspired to incorporate the fruit into your own meals? Try Honey & Co's peach salad with almond tahini, Delicious' feta parcels with grilled courgettes and peaches or Olive Magazine's BBQ pork with almond purée and pickled peaches the next time we're treated to a balmy summer evening – bellini optional…

Think Fyre festival was bad? The new Woodstock '99 documentary will make your jaw drop

Back in 2019, the disaster that was the infamous Fyre Festival lit up everyone's WhatsApp groups, thanks to Netflix's hit documentary. Three years later, the streamer is revisiting the 'festivals gone wrong' genre with its three-part documentary Trainwreck: Woodstock '99 – and it's even more outrageous. When young Americans' hatred for the Vietnam War combined with the challenges faced by the civil rights movement in the 60s, Woodstock music festival became a symbol of peace, love and unity. Three decades later, as gun violence in the US started to worsen in the late 90s, holding another festival to promote these values seemed like a good idea – but as this documentary details, the organisers couldn't have been more wrong. 

"Knowing how influential Woodstock '69 is in musical history, I was surprised I didn't already know that first off, there was even another Woodstock, but secondly, just how disastrous it was," says Stylist Loves writer Kiran Meeda. "Even with a line-up including Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Limp Bizkit, this festival was a mess in every sense. Commercialised at every opportunity, it was rife with rape and orgies, with no system for clean sanitation and candles used to start widespread fires in crowds. As the festival went on and the state of facilities worsened, crowds got angry – angry at MTV who were covering the event, angry at each other and angry at the big-name artists on stage. The more you watch, the more your jaw will be on the floor in shock – it makes Fyre look like a toddler's birthday party gone wrong in comparison." On Netflix now
