From the exhibition 'Hackney@50: The People's Choice' [12 February - 29 August 2015]

"This elephant comes from Chiang Mai in Thailand but has been in Hackney at Yum Thai Restaurant since 1992. Children used to play on it back then and now they've all grown up and bring their children here. The Yum cookbook is special to me as I have been in the restaurant business in the borough for over 30 years and the book enables a lot of my customers who have moved to different parts of Britain to try out my recipes at home.

Serving the people of Hackney has been an amazing experience with a real mix of people who appreciate good food and service."
