Riedel bottle cleaner

I thought I’d share this nifty find that I came across on the Selfridges website – a decanter cleaner. If you’re a fan or red wine and you have a decanter, I’m sure you know how difficult it is to clean these things properly.  I seem to always end up with foggy glass or watermarks on […]

I’ve always coveted these Fornasetti decorative wall plates – how cool are they?! I love their monochrome color scheme and the mystique they exude. Every time I walk through Selfridges I’m tempted to buy the whole collection, and I’m sure that it’ll happen one day. At £125 a pop, they’re quite an investment, but wouldn’t they make such a unique wall display in any […]

This weekend I tested out the cover recipe from Yotam Ottolenghi’s vegetarian cookbook, Plenty, which I blogged about a couple of days ago. The chef himself described this dish as “rustically elegant”- and indeed it was. See for yourself!
