With an exclusive interview with Sir Ben Kingsley, the latest issue of CALIBRE Quarterly is the finest yet, and cements our place as the number one magazine for the mature, modern man
In this issue, we have our biggest cover star yet in the shape of Oscar-winning actor, Sir Ben Kingsley, who is perhaps best known for his part in Richard Attenborough’s 1982 epic Gandhi. Sir Ben spoke to us about his long career on stage and screen, the delicious irony that surrounded his name change from Krishna Pandit Bhanji, and why he raises a ‘cheers’ to a bust of William Shakespeare while taking a swim. This interview reveals the famous depth of character of one of the UK’s finest actors.
Elsewhere in the issue we try our hand at a spot of cooking with guidance from Michel Roux Jnr and his very own MasterChef, Steve Groves. Read the issue to find out if our experience of Cooking The Roux Way, with Cactus Kitchens, turned us into chefs worthy of a place in the Le Gavroche kitchen. It was probably more of a case of DisasterChef than MasterChef.
Our 12 Angry Men took on the hot topic of immigration and the refugee crisis in their own inimitable style. This detailed and far-reaching conversation really got to the heart of what it means to be British in the 21st century and offered more sense and reason than we get from our current crop of politicians – whether in Westminster or Brussels!
Our motoring maestro, Mark Williams, tries out a couple of lovely Lotus sports cars that prove they are no longer cars just for studious enthusiasts – these beasts are accessible lean, mean machines capable of putting your back out of whack.
In our Taste of Tech feature we focus on that most rare of things, wife approved gadgets, meaning that you will never need to hide your bank statements again! Also we take a river cruise in France, help plan your New Year’s fitness campaign and go hunting ibex in Spain. All in all, another densely packed 180 pages of high-quality editorial content that proves that CALIBRE Quarterly is tailor-made to meet the needs of the mature, modern man and much more besides.
The next issue of CALIBRE Quarterly will be out on the 25th February by which time we will all have had one too many mince pies at Christmas, started our New Year’s resolutions, promptly given up on them, and somehow managed to forget Valentine’s day all in one fell swoop. No matter what trouble you get yourself in, however, make sure you continue to follow CALIBRE Quarterly as we close in on our 2nd birthday.
