For years a trip to the cinema has been marked by the synthetic buttery smell of popcorn, for which cinema-goers queue for in the hundreds. But in an increasing number of places, the aroma of more upmarket fare is wafting in, while guests enjoy a personal touch by ordering from their seats.

The Olympic Games have not always been without their troubles for Charles van Commenee. Indeed, the man from Amsterdam chuckles now at the memory of the 1992 Games in Barcelona. He travelled to the Catalan capital as the personal coach to a member of the Dutch team but was thrown out of the athletes' village after a disagreement with the Dutch chef de mission on the first day. He watched the rest of the Games at home on television.

I came to cooking randomly My best friend entered chef school and as I didn't know what to do, I followed him. I'd never cooked in my life until then. But when the teacher asked us to cook a plate of food, rather than thinking about girls, I started thinking, what is food to me, why do I like to eat? It was my first adult thought and I fell in love with cooking.

I'd rather hoped that Kevin's Grand Design would turn out to be a personal project, but although he seemed to have heavily invested in it, both monetarily and financially, we aren't yet to find out what the Nit-picker's Nit-picker would actually produce if he self-built a home for himself. Instead, this was to be an exercise in exemplary development: "I want to do everything," he said as he embarked on a project to produce low-cost, socially mixed housing. "I want it to be the best, I want it to be the cheapest, I want it to be the most sustainable, I want it to be the most exciting, the most architecturally inspired, the most contextual, the least mediocre." He also wanted to be the "Heston Blumenthal of housing", which sounded a little ominous. You expect an en suite bathroom, but you actually get a playroom-cum-kitchen, connected to the dining room by a playground slide.
