#7 | Three Little Words…

‘Where will we go?’ ‘Anywhere you want to.’ ‘Florence.’ Franny sat up in bed. Logan has stayed over every night, for about a month. She knew what he was doing and loved him even more for it; he wanted to let her know he didn’t mind coming here, to her council flat where the bath…

LONDON- N.W.

Kilburn Park is my special part of London. I lived here on the council estates across the road from Maida Vale. I loved it here.

Spaghetti San Marzano

The year was 2019 and the programme was Billions Season 1, episode 1. Have you watched Billions? If not, you should, you’d love it. It was a fleeting line but it stayed with me a long time and would come to define the show and its elevated taste. Axe asked Bruno what tomatoes he used…

Good Friday | Floralis Moscatel Oro

From the vines in the med, it is rare that a sweet wine be so full bodied and make your mouth do a double take, if that’s even possible. This excellent closer is complex yet smooth, not as sweet as you would expect a moscat to be, and that finish is to perfection. It is…
