a world of flavours

It’s sometimes suggested that British cookery is not as good as, say, French or Italian, but nothing could be further from the truth. Firstly, if you seek out good food, or even just watch Countryfile, you’ll know our homegrown ingredients are world beating. But more importantly, we’ve always been open to inspiration from other cultures. Our long affection for the Indian subcontinent means spices are now a store-cupboard staple, Chinese and Thai flavours abound, and of course we’ve adopted the best ideas from Europe, too. So nothing could be more British than our Easter feast on page 24, and yet it’s full of inspiration from across the seas. Do give it a try.

come on inside!

Where I read mine I always buy Woman’s Weekly in Belgium, in order to keep up with what’s going on in England. The problem is that I never find time to read, so when on holiday, I take plenty of copies and catch up. Here I am in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Annie Vanleenhove, Belgium ✿ We’d love to see where you read your copy of Woman’s Weekly. The more exotic the location, the better! Happy face Here’s a picture of my lovely grandson, Jenson. He is just one-week-old here and has obviously enjoyed his last feed. Frances Malsbury, St Albans Treasured cookbook When I was newly married in the early 70s, I bought this cookery book which has been invaluable throughout the years. It is quite tatty now and well worn but I…

reader garden

✿ Caroline Wilkinson likes to fill the air of her tiny urban garden with scent. She’s planted white Easter lilies ( Lilium longiflorum), which shine when the sun goes down; Confederate jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides), which has sweetly scented, star-shaped blooms, and the exotic-looking chocolate vine (Akebia quinata), which has maroon-chocolate blooms that fragrance the air with a hint of vanilla and are followed by sausage-shaped fruits. Roses from David Austin, such as magenta ‘William Lobb’ and pink, ‘The Generous Gardener’, embroider the air with perfume. She has also grown slim-fit climbers up wigwams and along trellis to create an intimate space and her ‘Rambling Rector’ rose, that scrambles up the neighbour’s apple tree, is a sight to behold when smothered with masses of single white flowers. It’s a mecca to bees…

meet our club

I’d love to tell you about my Clothes Swap group – we’re not a membership organisation but we meet up about three times a year and invite a bunch of friends to join us, swap clothes and raise money for charity. I was introduced to clothes swapping about 10 years ago and then decided to do my own, and Roz and Caroline are complete stalwarts. We invite around 10 women each time and lay on nibbles and drinks. Everyone arrives bearing large shoppers full of gorgeous clothes they no longer wear. We arrange them in piles in the sitting room, then take it in turns to play auctioneer. We start the bidding at £1, but the fun really starts when two or three person want the same item and there’s a bidding…

what you’re wearing

Theresa Brooker, 67 Tell us about your look… I like quite simple, easy shapes – slightly sporty – but always with a dash of colour! I love skinny jeans or Capri pants. I found these stretchy trousers in Sainsbury’s. They often have some really nice things. My jumper is from Topshop. My scarf was a present and I bought my Gabor boots in France. My favourite place to shop is French Connection. I also do a lot of knitting so often wear my own jumpers. And the best bit of your body? My legs. You wore it well Ethel Annie, née Davis, Sent in by her granddaughter, Judi Chapman This photo of my grandparents was taken in Melbourne, Australia, some time between the First and Second World Wars, by a street photographer.
