Reading List (21/2)

Blackberries (for those of you in the South).

On the pending apocalypse and society’s obsession with the end of the world.

Giving up a business at the peak of it’s success.

A response to those accusing us young’uns of wasting food because we like to take photographs of our meals. A new supermarket where you can pay what you want.

If you’re struggling to find new podcasts to listen to, Vogue has a list for you. (This is not me, by the way. I have so many and am addicted to so many, that I fear finding any more may actually tip me over an edge into the podcast unknown, where I will just listen to stories forever and ever, until I fade away from lack of nourishment).

Jay Rayner on what children should learn to cook.

Nancy Silverton! Swoon. How amazing is she? New chef crush. Watched the episode of her on Chef’s Table last night and am baking bread today. Possibly these things are related.

Mushroom hunting. Sounds like a fairly dangerous (although lucrative) past time to be honest.

Onion and cheese pie. Perfect for late winter dinners I think.

Albert Adria’s new restaurant in Barcelona.

Food and language. On using the word ‘interesting’, which I confess I use too much.

Protest, with food posters. And an interview about the collection.

Neil Gaiman reading a myth from his new book.

I love a crumble-tart – and this one, from Jeremy Lee, looks super.

This is an interesting read, about being a sober woman.

Farming and retirement.

Russian honey cake (pictured above). I was inspired to make this after watching Vladimir Mukhin’s episode on Chef’s Table. He serves his take on this cake alongside his grandmother’s version. Both looked divine so I tried my hand at it. It is sort-of-super-easy… (there are some quirks) but it tastes excellent. I have some ideas about how I might make it easier next time.

Have a good week! x
