My daily ritual has been working at home alone all day, the silence punctuated only by online meetings and incessant drilling from the house being built over the back (timing!). Later, when my husband comes back from the GP practice where he works, we sit outside with a glass of wine and some warm, salty toasted almonds and discuss the day. Those have been…

STAR EMAIL FROM: MILLIE WALKER Full-fat or slimmed-down your magazine never fails to bring joy, and I’d like to thank you for continuing your work during lockdown. When the August issue arrived, within 48 hours I welcomed two friends to my garden with watermelon and gin slushies [p74] before serving your oven-roasted salmon with maple and mustard herb crust [p67]. Served with Ottolenghi sides and followed by fire-roasted marshmallows dipped in your timeless ‘wicked chocolate sauce’, it was a summer feast that carried us far away from our troubles. As part of the skeleton crew keeping St Paul’s Cathedral ticking over (ironically ticking is the one thing we’re doing badly – none of us can wind the clock and it’s losing time!) as well as project-managing Remember Me , the online book of remembrance…

what makes a great garden party?

A poll by Bacardi has revealed what Brits believe are the essential ingredients for a backyard bash, with the top-rated item being sausages on the barbecue. Over 40 per cent wanted summer cocktails and 35 per cent finger sandwiches, with gin and tonics, potato salad and blankets for when it gets cold also topping the list.

Only a paltry 11 per cent were interested in a pavlova, though – surely some mistake? POLL OF 1,000 UK RESPONDENTS CONDUCTED BY PERSPECTUS GLOBAL IN JULY 2020…
