This recipe is from wa-aay back at Christmas, but this fairly balanced brunch could work anytime. My sister left some panko breadcrumbs at my house over the festive period and they found their way into pretty much everything. One morning I decided to use these crunchy little lads to add a bit of extra speshness [...]
January is so the month that everyone just plods through, with gritted teeth and glumly clutching resolutions. Unless you’re one of those charmed people who go to the Caribbean to catch some winter sun, in which case you’re not allowed to read this blog. I’m remembering wearing JUST a t-shirt and jeans, do you know [...]
Every Christmas there’s always a winning dish, it’s usually something unassuming that didn’t seem like it would take centre stage. Last year it was the super easy red wine braised lentils that blew everyone away and this year I’m happy to say it was once again a vegetable dish that trumped the meat fest.

Blame a really spectacular two-day migraine, which is still threatening to return, like a distant stormy cloud, on this late edition of Sundries. I haven’t just been lying down in a darkened room this week though, on no! See a sneak preview [...]
I’ve just been having a discussion this morning about heating, when you’re freelance and in the house all day do you put the heating on? I usually don’t and bravely suffer the cold until the evening when I need something super hot and cosy to warm me up.
This four greens risotto is the perfect [...]
Over the years I’ve gone all out for Hallowe’en, dressing as Lara Croft Womb Raider, Dot Cotton (twice), Columbo, a mustard packet, a cosplay fan and Piggy from Lord of the Flies, but this year I don’t think I’ll be dressing up. I still love the idea of going all-out with a ridiculous Hallowe’en [...]
Super-cute video on the making of Mulberry’s LFW invites, cute little Wedgewood cup and saucer sets.
As you read this I am in sunny Venice, most likely drinking a negroni and enjoying Jeremy Deller‘s exhibition at the Biennale. Two of my favourite things! Check my Instagram for smugadicci updatatorrini.
This week I got some new shoes c/o [...]
If you haven’t already seen this, naughty Jimmy Kimmel tricks NYFW-goers into spouting nonsense about made up designers. George Costanza? Yeah, really great fabric manipulation, love him.
London Fashion Week! Yay! Boo! Like going to a festival, the path to enjoying Fashion Week is cherry picking your favourites and sneaking off from the madness [...]
Don’t get me wrong, I love dirty food with an unashamed passion, – hi embarrassing Chicken Selects addiction – but really, I truly love eating healthy, homecooked food. That feeling of tucking into loads of delicious veg leaves you feeling lovely inside and out, I also get a real kick from cooking. Daks’ designer Sheila [...]
Antoni and Alison were one of the first brands that I became aware of as a teen, spotting their witty slogan t-shirts in Just Seventeen’s fashion pages, so it was a real treat to be invited to their Rosebery Avenue tearoom in Farringdon. Ahead of their London Fashion Week presentation Antoni Burakowski – one half [...]
