Happy Memorial Day

Yesterday was the barbecue. Today I’m spending studying to get my dang California drivers license back tomorrow. TEN YEARS I held on to that dang thing as I bounced around the country.

Whisky experts were all agog over the prospect of [...]

I Am So Bored

Honestly, the world is coming apart at the seams, but — presumably because I feel so fatalistic about it all (we had a chance to win this shiz and blew it, imho) — I just can’t be bothered (I’m also getting my ass kicked by either a cold or allergies). And I don’t even have [...]

Poor Pub

I’ve had this open for an age so I’ll finally link to it now: The Economist – Time, gentlemen An elegy on the British pub, by our obituaries editor The church can go, long since the preserve of a flower-arranging few; the local shop can go, since the distant hypermarket’s cheapness is worth the petrol; [...]

Peter Recommends CXXIX

Industrial kitchens are CRAZY. Vincent Talleu: Croissants I’ve made croissants before (it turned out well but was definitely one of those things that, having done it, I’m happy to let others do it for me) and he’s actually doing it right. These ain’t no (or shouldn’t be no) limp supermarket pastries.

Absolutely the Funniest Item of the Day CCLIV

Brief note: I love the Sunday Times iPad app. Honestly, everybody should subscribe to the paywall (it’s not that hard paying, oh children of the interweb), buy an iPad (I mean you should all have one of these anyway; just ask Half) download each edition of the Sunday Times free with your paywall subscription and [...]

Christmas Confession:

I really, really want to eat at a Chinese restaurant on Christmas day some time, just to see what it’s really like. Does that make me a bad Catholic? A tourist of American Judaism? Or maybe I’m just not that keen on Turkey and Ham and am subconsciously latching onto a segment of the population [...]

Good Restaurants and Design-Led Hotels

A restaurant review in The Times: Giles Coren reviews Brasserie Joël, London SE1 What preposterous gastronomic oxymoron to serve such stellar names of old rural France in this wizened prepuce of an urban planner’s foetid, guilty nightmare? I love it.

I Guess Jamie Oliver Isn’t a Tory

I saw that kerfuffle play out on Twitter and I must say, I got the impression that if he was, he’d be hailed as visionary by the new government. It seemed like that kind of snipe. The Times – Janice Turner: It was a supersize gaffe to diss Jamie, minister About that column: I concur. [...]
