when in rome

Have you ever thought you knew superior quality, only to be shown what true five-star stuff is made of? It’s a humbling experience that also makes you laugh a little at yourself. Just like shelling out for 500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and then sleeping on 100% mulberry silk, coveting cashmere until you rub up against ultrafine merino wool, and eating pasta anywhere in the world until you’ve twirled your fork in Italy, as I was reminded on a recent trip to The Eternal City. And while I delight in the freedom of being unashamedly greedy in Italy by using the excuse that it’s only polite to follow their meal tradition of having antipasto, primo, secondo, contorno and dolce, every one of these courses could, for me, be pasta – solo. Since…

JUSTIN FOX Travel writer, novelist and photographer I am an award-winning writer and photographer and have spent the last two decades travelling Africa on assignment crossing the Sahara by camel, exploring the highlands of Ethiopia and sailing the East African coast by dhow!

BREAKING BREAD I love tearing and sharing breads as they make gettogethers with family and friends so special. The fig and olive bread recipe in the February 2016 issue of F&HE immediately caught my attention as, besides the great colours, the design of the bread was wonderfully different. I’m a keen artisan baker so immediately rolled up my sleeves and reached for the stoneground flour in the cupboard to try my hand at baking a loaf. I decided on a sun-dried tomato and basil pesto combination as I enjoy those flavours and we were also having an Italian-style meal. The filling was alternated for each of the layers of the bread. I found the shaping easy enough, but the true test was how brilliantly the bread turned out – vibrant, colourful…
