Nicht jeder darf das Jaguar Land Rover Testgelände in Gaydon besuchen. Wir schon: Für den exklusiven Fotoshoot des Jaguar XE versammelte sich unser Produktions-Team auf der geheimen Rennstrecke. Steffen Jahn fotografierte das brandneue Jaguar Fahrzeug. Das Set-up war aufgrund des für England typischen Wetters in den Control Towers der ehemaligen Flugbahn untergebracht. Kurze Regenpausen wurden dazu genutzt, mit eigens angemieteten Drohnen zu fotografieren. Das Ergebnis ist eine ästhetisch hochwertig und stimmungsvolle Strecke in der Ausgabe 01-2015 des J-Magazines.

Watch it Jaguar and bremont have joined forces on six chronometers to complement the six new lightweight E-Types being built to finalise the original ’63 production run. Later this year more commercially available versions will arrive so more of you can get a chance to don one of these great-looking time-pieces. Eat it Why fine art and food mix at Hix… For those who appreciate fine art and fine food, the latest London restaurant from celebrated chef Mark Hix Hixter Bankside could be just the ticket. Only a few minutes’ walk south of the river from the globally revered Tate Modern art gallery and Borough Market food paradise, Hixter Bankside is Hix’s biggest restaurant yet. The converted metal box factory houses specially commissioned art from leading British artists including Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk and focuses on casual dining with a simple menu based around carefully sourced, high-quality roast chicken and beef steak. The ex-Ivy, Dorset-raised cook already has a restaurant in Lyme Regis, just around the corner from his hometown of Charmouth and half a dozen others in London including the Hix Oyster & Chop House and Hix at Selfridges. Hixter Bankside’s basement plays host to his latest award-winning cocktail emporium Mark’s Bar while private dining rooms are available for eight to 50 guests. With kids under 10 allowed to eat for free every day from 4 to 6pm the Hixter could be the perfect family-friendly artistic and culinary experience combined. PHOTOGRAPHY: PR (12); Andrew Francis Wallace/Toronto Star/Getty Images Fast food often used to mean trash food. But now young chefs show that delicious dishes can be served quickly Food trucks A second trend we love: excellent quality dishes from nice guys in trucks (or mobile restaurants). Here are three: (Toronto, right), (Frankfurt), (LA) And the matching film... Chef (2014). Jon Favreau is a stressed-out cook who loses his restaurant but re-finds his love of food through opening an acclaimed food truck instead. Out now on DVD Non-booking... is a trend we love: instead of calling, booking and hurrying to be in time, just be served when you arrive. If the restaurant is full, the waiters will call or text you when a table is free (and some have apps where you can see your place in the queue remotely). Or simply wait, because guests just eat and leave. Fast food fast. In London: (left) THE PERFORMANCE ISSUE j 9
