Jack Russells are just the best dogs. Here is some evidence.
The Two Fat Ladies. I used to love this show. Did you?
Being a mother and working in the food industry.
I am listening to Reader, I married him. It is a collection of short stories edited by Tracy Chevalier. All the stories are inspired by Jane Eyre. I am loving them. I don’t normally go in for short stories – mostly because I become attached to the characters and then don’t want to let go (it is a thing). But these are so wonderful and arresting. I particularly loved Grace Poole, Her Testimony by Helen Dunmore and Reader, She Married Me by Sally Vickers. But all the stories have been superb.
A round up of the weekend’s food news and recipes.
Persian New Year. I also listened to the Bon Appetit Foodcast talking about Middle Eastern foods. After listening to talk of cooking rice, I finally managed to crack out some decent rice at the weekend, for our vegan cookbook club. (More on that hysterical experience another time.)
This picture of Viennese desserts. Plus the accompanying article.
This is a beautiful piece of writing that makes me happy and sad at the same time.
Sketching the restaurants of NYC.
A library across borders.
Listening to podcasts is stress-relieving…
Swimming in Snowdonia.
‘Which bodies can go where‘ – reflections on travel writing. (There’s a number of articles in this series now up.)
Have a good week! x
