Recipe: Courgette (zucchini) & feta fritters

January 18, 2016 LLG Fashion

Fritters are one of my favourite things: there’s a recipe for sweetcorn ones in my cookbook Friends, Food, Family that is, frankly, utterly delicious, and I wrote a courgette (zucchini) version with a tomato relish for The Pool last year. Packed with protein, they’re also such a good way to eat lots of vegetables, and they […]

Saving the best for now: why I’ve stopped stashing for the day that never comes

January 13, 2016 LLG Fashion

These 1930s silver-plated knives, forks and spoons used to live in a beautiful wooden canteen, a lovely piece of workmanship that bore testament to the expense of buying a whole set of cutlery. I bought that canteen from eBay a few years ago, astonished at the near perfect condition of the contents after decades: I […]

December 24, 2015 LLG Fashion

Princess Lettice is very jealous of Rosie Fortesuce’s Noodle the Dachshund, who has been immortalised on these wonderful French Sole black suede shoes. Inspired by early 19th Century Gentlemen’s Opera Slippers, a with a rose gold ‘Little Dax’ embroidery motif adorning the front of the shoes, they are phenomenally comfortable, and £50 from each sale […]

Cornwall: Holidaying in Polpier & Penpol Rental Houses in Mevagissey

December 22, 2015 LLG Fashion

Imagine being able to sit outside on a beautiful terrace and look down across a Cornish harbour, where sea meets sky, and fishing boats float across the horizon. It seems rather like a lovely dream now, but that’s exactly what we were able to do for a magical four days out of our busy, busy London lives […]

Gadgets: Four Best Household Gadgets I Can’t Live Without…

December 22, 2015 LLG Fashion

Lettice modelling her new Lands’ End snowflake print Dog Puffer Vest. I was in New York last week to host a dinner for the US launch of my cookbook. Sadly I was struck by the most hideous cold, and spent most of the time holed up in my hotel room, feeling sorry for myself. Happily […]

Christmas Shopping at The Royal Exchange, London: A Gift Guide…

December 7, 2015 LLG Fashion

I can spend hours wandering around the Royal Exchange in the City of London. Although, from the outside, it would be easy to mistake it for some venerable financial institution, what it actually houses is a glorious arcade of some of not just London’s, but the globe’s most prestigious retailers, from Hermes to Jo Malone, Smythson to […]
