In this issue of The Lady : So, what’s your favourite recipe? Come on, you
must have one: the dish you return to again
and again. Perhaps it’s a family classic passed
down to you through the generations; a surprise
supper you rustled up once out of a can of
tuna, a jar of homemade marmalade and a kilo
of shiitake mushrooms, or something as simple
as beans on toast – spiced up with a single secret ingredient.
Well, inside, some rather big names reveal theirs for charity.
You’ll discover Emma Thompson’s sausage and cabbage bake,
Meryl Streep’s wheatberry salad, and Barbara
Broccoli’s fabulous chocolate celebration
cake – although we’re not sure whether
the Bond fi lm producer has ever shared a
slice with 007.
Do let us know how you get on with them
– and don’t forget to send us your favourites.
We’ll publish the most delicious later in the year.
There’s also television presenter and vintage afi cionado
Dawn O’Porter on why we should treasure classic styles and
fi ght throwaway fashion; a celebration of the glamorous Lost
Girls, the society beauties who partied through the Blitz and
beyond, and VG Lee’s hilarious account of the day she (mistakenly)
believed her elderly neighbour, Ted, had gone missing. We
reveal how to pen a eulogy, the best way to navigate a second
wedding and even how the humble turnip changed history.
Well, we did promise you the odd surprise.
Very best wishes,
Matt Warren, Editor
