  3. Foraged Food: Blackberries

    When I walk around all of South London' s commons around this time each year, I am constantly surprised at at the wealth of blackberries available; that no one with the exception of myself seems to pick! When I was a child growing up in Wales we had to walk miles to find anything, lucky to fill a pint jug after a whole day. Today I can fill one in five minutes. So get out and forage... 20130816_111916_resized_1 (1) When you have your foraged fruit there is plenty you can do with it, and don't worry if you're not a cook. Here's an easy and delicious idea for you. Fill an old passata bottle a little more than half full, add 6 tablespoons of sugar and fill with cheap vodka. Screw the lid on tight and leave in a cupboard at least until Christmas. If you decorate the bottle you'll have a very acceptable gift of blackberry flavoured vodka . However if you can't bear to give it away, enjoy the flavoured vodka and even better, the macerated blackberries make a perfect accompaniment with some vanilla ice team or lemon sorbet. If you have any blackberry recipes please share them with us .

  6. Theatre Fix: A Doll's House

    A DOLL'S HOUSE  by Ibsen

    Thursday night I saw Carrie Cracknell's wonderful production of Ibsen's A Doll's House at the Duke of Yorks .

    You may wonder how can you make a play that is 134 years old, and had so many productions new again? Well, Cracknell has pulled out all the stops.

    From Ian Macneil's inspired set which spins around to echo the frantic pace of Nora's home, rather like that of a hamster that her husband sometimes calls her! To the new English script by Simon Stephens which feels both dangerous and for some ( husbands especially)
