Reading List (6/6)

Hello June! And happy birthday Sammy! I love this month of the year. Long days. Warm weather. Mostly sunny skies. Bring on the sea and a holiday (14 more working days)!

But first, the Shetland Pony Grand National. Guys. This is a thing. And it may be the BEST THING EVER. As someone who, in their youth, was a seasoned Shetland pony rider, all I can say is cousins, we missed out! Imagine doing this with Penny or Tuppence! My gawd. Thanks Princess for bringing this to my attention. Made my week.

Brave Tart’s advice on making a layer cake.

Civil Eats has some guidance on how you can keep being a food activist in the age of Trump.

The best gelato maker you’ve never heard of, and harsh truth about being older in the kitchen.

Noma Mexico is over but people haven’t stopped writing about it yet. Even on why they didn’t go to review it.

Small acts of ‘boring self-care‘. Love this.

Why cookbooks are so important.

An interesting article on living with less technology and more with nature.

A piece that made me think – on food addiction.

This book is on my wish list. Samin is on various episodes of Cooked, which you can watch on Netflix, if you haven’t already. I like the way the book is organised, and I love the illustrations.

An academic version of would you rather…

Essential books on the future of food.

All these things: a, b, c, from the Kitchen that is Smitten.

Did knitters partake in espionage?

I do love William Kentridge and I think this new project, focusing on the ‘less good idea’ is simply genius.

This week I’d like to make these peach desserts (I love love love a poached peach in the summer) and this cherry tart. I  love the way both these women write about food – the stories that accompany these recipes are just lovely.

Have a good week! x
