I am so glad the waist is back in fashion. If only I could find mine, it’s got to be there somewhere. And I have decided the best way to find it again is by investing in a fabulous belt to pull it all in. I’m thinking a thinner belt, I’m thinking something in colour, I’m thinking something with texture. I’m thinking the gorgeous Scanlan & Theodore red and black thin snakeskin belt. Wear it around a cardigan, with jeans, over a jacket, with your shirt tucked into your skirt a la Lanvin. It’s a must buy.

Who isn’t always on the lookout searching and searching for new lip gloss? It’s never ending and relentless. Like dieting. So this week my new find in the lip gloss department is one that doesn’t come off (as quickly) as the others: Bloom Lip Gloss in a colour called Cutie Pie. It’s a fabulous natural colour and seems to stay on longer than the other ones I’ve tried (which come off as soon as you open your mouth to coo over the new Prada bags). This even seems to stay on even after eating (but it’s best to give that up anyway).
$21 Bloom Cutie Pie Lip Gloss from major department stores.

Lilla’s Feast : A True Story of Food, Love, and War by Frances Osbourne
Written by Lilla’s great granddaughter, this is a fascinating read especially if you love historical novels with a food bent and a bit of a love story or two. “At the end of her life, Lilla was as elegant as ever-all fitted black lace and sparkling-white diamonds. To her great-grandchildren, she rarely mentioned the Japanese prison camps in which she spent much of World War II, or the elaborate cookbook she wrote to help her survive behind the barbed wire. From the noodles of Shanghai to the chutney of British India and the roasts of England, good food and sensuous surroundings, Lilla was raised to believe, could carry one a long way toward happiness. And now Lilla’s remarkable cookbook, which she composed while on the brink of starvation is now housed in the Imperial War Museum in London “ what a story!

White cooked chicken from Kylie Kwong
This is just the thing to whip for a dinner party because all you do is poach the chicken for 14 minutes and then let it sit and steep in the juice/marinade for 4 hours. So here’s a hint: start to cook at 2 or 3 in the afternoon and it will be ready by 8. Then all you do is serve it at room temp with a sprinkling of the soy and chilli dressing. Which means you can have hours of fun setting he table, reading vanity fair and working on your hair
1 free range chicken (get it cut into 8 pieces, it’s easier)
6 litres of water (or enough to cover the chicken)
3 cups of shao hsing wine
8 green spring onions
12 garlic cloves (yes!)
1½ cups of ginger shards ( sliced ginger)
4 tabs seassalt
Soy and chilli dressing:
¼ cup mushroom soy
1teasp sesame oil
1 finely sliced red chilli
1 tabs of julienned ginger
½ teasp of sugar
2 ½ teasp of peanut oil
Coriander for garnishing
salt and pepper
·Place all the stock ingredients in a big saucepan. I’m talking a big one like 10 litre
·Bring it to boil
·Reduce heat and let it simmer for about 15 mins
·While it’s having a simmer, rinse the chicken
·Lower the chicken pieces into the stock so that they are fully submerged (ain’t wanting to see no chicken legs sticking out thanks)
·Turn the temperature down to just about simmering so there is just an occasional ripple across the surface so that the little chicken can poach gently.
·Poach it for exactly 14 minutes. That’s what Kylie says. Exactly 14 minutes. Well, I have never done anything for exactly 14 minutes but I have tried with this one….
·Now here is the best bit: Take it off the stove immediately and allow it to seep (read: sleep Read : the chicken is going to have a little snooze and marinate for 3 hours and slowly cook in those juices. YUM
·Now just relax, think about which Missoni top you’ll throw on, which Manolos, what music , and will George bring you another pretty little blue box or will it be an orange one this time? So many things to think about for 3 hours
·This might be a good time to make the chilli soy sauce (and the fried beans see FiFi Report #26 ) so that there is nothing to do when the guests arrive except air kiss and drink
·Good idea: double the amount of chilli soy sauce, more is more!
·For chilli soy sauce: mix mushroom soy, sesame oil, chilli, ginger, and sugar and set aside
·Now just before you are ready to eat, ( the chicken can sleep for 4 hours, so don’t worry)
·Pull the chicken pieces out with some tongs and gently toss on a big white platter, Drizzle some juices on. ( you serve it at room temperature)
·Then really wake the chicken up by giving it a good drizzling it with the chilli soy dressing
·Then quickly heat some peanut oil ( to smoking) and pour over the chicken but please for gods sake be careful not to splutter the oil on the Missoni…
·Talk about sizzling!
·Sprinkle nonchalantly with some fresh coriander and some salt and pepper
·Serve with the fried beans and some boiled rice
Too chic, too delicious , too easy… thanks Kylie!
The Aviator …Directed by Martin Scorsese with Leonardo Dicaprio and Cate Blanchett etc
I take it all back. Million Dollar Baby is not going to get the Oscar. Sorry Clint, but Scorsese has to win with The Aviator. What a movie! It’s a seriously big screen spectacular and a fabulous recreation of the golden age of Hollywood. If you have been on a Ashram or in rehab ( bless) you might not know that this is about the eccentric Billionaire Howard Hughes (from the 1920’s to the 1940’s.) What a kook but a brilliant kook: “ At 25, Hughes directed the most expensive film ever made up to that point, HELL’S ANGELS (1930), which Scorsese gleefully recreates here in all its sprawling, audacious glory. At the same time, he became known as an unabashed playboy, bedding the likes of Jean Harlow ( Gwen Stefani), Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale), and Katherine Hepburn ( Cate Blanchett). In the mid-’30s, he turned to aviation , where he quickly became a world-renowned celebrity for shattering speed and distance records.” Leonardo DiCaprio is great until the amazing Cate Blanchett appears. She is so incredible and so believable as Katherine Hepburn that it is almost weird to see baby faced Leonardo with the forthright and much older Hepburn. Spooky. They almost don’t gel because she takes over the screen. What a gal! But sit back and be awed by the incredible sets, the clothes, the photography, the acting, the movie making and how numb your bum will feel after 3 hours. A winner!
Conde Nast Traveller UK Feb:
Oh dear, it is a problem when travel stories on Tsunami hit areas start to turn up. This month’s issue has a story on the gorgeous Islands off India, called the Lakshadweep Islands, which look like an Island paradise. Let’s hope it still is, bless. Also read about Nicaragua for an adventure holiday or please go and stay in Antigua, especially at Carlisle Bay, for a luxury one. Everyone has written about it (http://www.carlisle-bay.com.)There is a fab story on the most glamorous ski resort in the world: Courchevel and the family that made it ( check out the face lifted mother in the Hummer) or if you are in London, get out!! And head to Salamanca in Spain for along weekend, it looks cool.
Metropolitan Home March:
This magazine is going monthly, interesting to see if they can keep up the groovy houses. This is issue is on ‘American style now’ and some could wonder if that is an oxymoron. But leave it to two ‘metrosexuals’ art directors (give or take a homo or two) to not let the Team America down! Their stone farm house in country Pennsylvania is simple minimal and chic. This is not such an inspiring issue but the story on the new restaurant at the MOMA in NYC is great and I like the recipes too.
UK Vogue March:
Is it me? Or does everyone look at these fashion pages and say ‘what ever happened to just beautiful?”. The new fashion silhouette is all about volume (think 80’s/new romantics/big clothes…aaahhh) I don’t think there is one shot I look at and say I want to look like that ( except a shot of a YSL dress) and I am a fashion person.God help the civilians out there who just want to get dressed in the morning.But there is always lots to read: the wardrobe diaries of 3 social butterflies in London, New York,Paris and LA , the story called ‘Go figure’ on volume: oversized shirts, billowing skirts and floaty dresses, and a story on Liam Neeson and his role in Kinsey. A big issue, worth buying.
