Last month Ennio Morricone performed at Royal Albert Hall in London – along with a 100 piece orchestra, and 100 singers, and I was fortunate enough to be there. Words can’t even begin to describe how grand and beautiful it was… I had goosebumps throughout the entire performance.
The first song I heard was the ‘Deborah’s Theme’ from Once Upon a Time in America, the song plays when Noodles (De Niro) takes Deborah to dinner at the empty restaurant, it’s probably one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard.
The new Yotam Ottolenghi cookbook, Plenty, will hit the shelves in early May – just in time for summer BBQ season. The last one was full of delicious salads, tarts and sweet treats that could (mostly) be prepared in advance, meaning there wasn’t any fussing about when guests are around.
there is everything right about this man (very fittingly) named Ernest’s music – all dreamy with great drums and psychedelic keys, and lucky for me and thanks to Upset the Rhythm he’ll playing live in London on Tuesday 1 June at Cargo… if this Icelandic volcanic ash ever disperses and they start letting the planes fly again.
How to Make it in America is a new comedy offering from the producers of Entourage (which I LOVE). This one is set in Manhattan (and bits probably in Williamsburg) with a couple of man-boys trying to make it in the world of premium denim/street wear. They’re hustlers, hopeless, but kind of endearing. There’s also the token nerd-guy and hispanic uncle just out of prison. I’m only 4 episodes into the first season, it’s full of hipster parties, skating and street art – but I’m kind of into it… !
I’ve just been in Miami for some spring sunshine and this song came on the radio while I was driving across one of those amazing bridges over the turquoise water of the Florida Keys. It became the theme song of the holiday & I can’t stop listening to it… love it!
