Irene Dunne’s Chocolate Vinegar Cake

I work in a film archive and all of my colleagues are just LOVELY. It's such a fab place to work and there is always fun to be had when a birthday comes around. A big pretence is made that we've all forgotten all about it and nothing is said until about 3pm when...

Yul Brynner’s Sauteed Broccoli

When it pours with rain on a dark and cold evening, commuters in London go a bit mental.  One night way back in November I had to wait in the cold and wet while 3 full buses sailed past my stop while folks in the bus queue were effing and blinding and waving their...

Una Stubbs’ Home-made Muesli​

Una Stubbs’ Home-made Muesli​

There are some combinations of words that are nice to say together and for me, Una's Muesli is one of those. But you have to pronounce Una OONA rather than YOONA. When I am out and about and need to grab something for breakfast from somewhere like Pret a Manger I lean...
