I see white lights in life through cold glass through wet windows drizzled ochre olive oil beads reflecting halogen glints. Hear the resonant boom murmur up through the floorboards Father bellows constantly below RURR RURR RURR SSS RURR SS RR How we long long for some escape from repetition escape from repetition escape from the […]
Few objects rank higher on my kitchen wish list than a wood fired pizza oven. There is something so seductive about the taste imparted to dough by logs blazing away in that stone and ceramic dome. We’re fortunate enough to have a number of eateries in London boasting substantial ovens, but for my money there […]
Friars all blackened by soot of Cubano Downstairs venture to a Francophile’s pit Shepherds and butchers alike cut it here Snip here, snip there and the draw begins.
