A very good piece by @HadleyFreeman  which says everything I’d want to say.

This week’s review: Kolamba, London, where the punchy Sri Lankan food arrives in vibrant gashes of colour.

Sunday pimpery: to launch the paperback of my book My Last Supper I will be in conversation with the joy that is @gracedent  on sept 4. There are a couple of tables left @LiveAtZedel  if you want to be there, but we’re also live streaming it. Both links here

And then a week later the JR Quartet plays live for the first time in 6 months, again @LiveAtZedel . For social distancing reasons they’ve halved capacity and now you have to buy by the table. Hot jazz. Outrageous stories. Hope to see you there.

Expect a few pretties from today @TheFoodChain  fundraiser @SOLAsoho  with @ChefVGDP

A few more dishes from @TheFoodChain  lunch @RamblaSoho  focaccia with truffle butter, summer gazpacho, torched mackerel with watermelon and tomato ponzu broth

Next course @TheFoodChain  - lobster with wild mushroom tortellini with a dashi broth. I’d show you the seafood being flamed on a rock but you’d take the piss.

Last savoury course @TheFoodChain  lunch @SOLAsoho  seabass with leaks, bisque and beurre blanc

To drop the snark for a moment, what’s extraordinary is that the UK govt would willingly undermine the vital public health messaging in the midsts of a pandemic which has killed 55,000 people and rising - just to save one wretched man’s job.

This is a very simple - even simplistic - tweet. Dear we don’t want you to visit Britain. Please don’t come. We don’t like you. At all. Go to Miami. You’ll be much happier there. RT if you too don’t want Trump to come here.

So vote leave, headed up by and along with has admitted it broke electoral law multiple times. It’s not an allegation. They admit it. This should be huge news. Pls RT.

I know we’re up to our nipples in killer Brexit analogies but for obvious reasons this one speaks to me.

Let me add my voice to the justifiably outraged clamour of those furious at the govt for insisting hospitality and entertainment industries shut down without legally mandating them to do so, meaning they can’t claim insurance. Staggeringly reckless.

SHORT THREAD: it is no surprise and yet still infuriating that the GB govt is clearly now entertaining allowing chlorine washed chicken on to our shelves. To be clear, the issue here is not the chlorine. The problem is why it's used. 1/

Obv a vital message but I’m concerned about the black sleeved hand on the calf of the woman on the right. It can’t be hers because she has her left hand in the bowl. The other woman’s left hand couldn’t reach that far. THERE IS A 3rd WOMAN UNDER THE DOG.

So previously said he couldn’t comment on the illegality at Vote Leave while the appeal was ongoing. He must be relieved the appeal is over so he can now explain. I’m sure we’ll hear from shortly.

Hands up who thinks they can drive a four year old child for 260 miles WITHOUT STOPPING?
