‘The King and I’ Review: Excellence at the London Palladium

I have to admit, it was with some trepidation that we took our seats for the production of ‘The King and I’ at the London Palladium last week. Not because we (my mother and I) had low expectations of the show, but rather the contrary – this revival of the show, which began in 2015, had received such unanimously...

In the Kitchen with James: Strawberries, Cream and Pimm’s

This week I’m embracing the good weather and the beginning of Wimbledon with a couple of British summer staples, strawberries and cream and Pimm’s. Both are absolute classics and hardly need to be tampered with, but here I’m trying out slight variations on the originals to keep them fresh while preserving their timeless simplicity. The perfect marriage of strawberries and...

Messi or Ronaldo: Football’s greatest debate continues on the biggest stage

Football’s most notorious and fiery debate (other than VAR) once again came to the fore at the World Cup in Russia. The age old question being, who is better, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0xz2PSnZ0E We have seen these two heavyweights stand head and shoulders above everyone else for over a decade now and much of the build up to this...

Are England set to bring the trophy home?

What a group stage! 48 games, 122 goals. A shocking German exit, Spain and Portugal nearly bottling it, Nigerian heartbreak and a very drunk Diego Maradona - this year’s tournament has had it all. Perhaps the best story, on these shores at least, was England. Two wins from their opening two games, including their biggest ever at a World...

In the Kitchen with James: Trying out Mate Tea

I’d never heard of mate (pronounced ma-teh) until recently when a number of articles reported that Eric Dier and some of the other Tottenham and England footballers were hooked on this infused drink from South America. It’s not dissimilar to loose tea in that it takes the form of dried leaves which are left to brew in hot water. I was excited to try...

In the Kitchen with James: Making your own Hot Sauce

This week I’m making hot sauce, a condiment that seems to be ever-growing in popularity and one that has many uses. Whether you’re someone who carries a bottle around wherever you go or simply likes to add a kick to your meals now and again, I think making your own is a great way to save a bit of...
