  • A Healthy Namaaste To The Olympic Games

    Monday July 30th, 2012

    I have no tickets, I have no official merchandise, and what's more, I have absolutely no inclination to spend my summer glued to a sporting event of any kind.

  • An Early Indian Summer In Soho

    Friday July 13th, 2012

    The summer's turning out to be a damp squib. We, however, are tucking into perfectly dry, crisp fried squid, luxuriating in the warmth of a garden filled with palm trees.
