Some recipes I want to try

Rather than leave them to languish in my ‘Blogfodder’ folder in perpetuity, here’s some links to recipes I fancy giving a go some day. Nearly all are from the Guardian, and most are by Yotam Ottolenghi, but I’m sure you won’t hold that against me. Here goes:


Weeknotes #662-666

Week 666 (ooh, scary!) was a busy one for press screenings, my most out-and-about week for a while, at least since mine and Bee’s double birthday at the end of May. (We went out for dinner and saw Cirque du Soleil, which was great. Don’t let anybody ever tell you different.)

One of the films I saw last week came out three days after the screening, which should tell you something about its quality, but 3 Days to Kill is a special kind of awful. Much better, thankfully and surprisingly, is Oculus, which I got to see a couple of weeks previously. Also up on Thumped are my takes on Ken Loach’s Jimmy’s Hall and Irish skateboarding documentary Hill Street.
