When the British Fashion Council announced London Fashion Week would be moving to Brewer Street, I have to confess I was secretly chuffed.

There is currently a lobster-mania gripping the capital at the moment. London is becoming inundated with lobster restaurants. What was once a luxury, reserved for the fanciest of places (with a price tag to match), is now becoming widely available, as lobster restaurants pop up all over the city.

This delicious pesto dish is ready to eat in the time it takes to cook the pasta and is a great way to use up really ripe avocados. I use a couple of tricks to make this recipe extra special - using avocado creates a light and creamy pesto, and is a healthier alternative to cream or oil.

If your crosses have disappeared during the cooking process, you can make a paste with icing sugar and water and pipe again over the buns. Will keep in a airtight container for a few days; reheat in the oven for 5-10 minutes before serving.

The One With The Made Up Meals

If I do make something from a recipe book I can't help 'tinkering' with it until eventually it's beyond all recognition of the original. I rarely look at a cookbook anyway, unless it's for the proportions for Yorkshire puddings; for some reason I always have to look that up, or buy Aunt Bessie's, who is known in this house as the patron saint of the roast dinners.

My Relationship With Food

Lisa Roukin

I've always had a complicated relationship with food. A foodie for as long as I can remember, by the time I was 13, I weighed 13 stone. Constant teasing and self-consciousness finally led to a full-blown eating disorder in my late teens. After a great deal of hard work I managed to conquer my illness, and thankfully my love of food remained.

Weaning the World Off Salt

Dr Paul Zollinger-Read | Posted 12.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Dr Paul Zollinger-Read

Eating habits in childhood influence eating patterns in later life. Liking the taste of salty food is actually a learned taste preference. Therefore, those who eat little salt taste the natural flavours of food a lot more than those who have a lot of salt. The current focus is wrong.

Eating in Venice

Philip Dundas

I find it hard to put my finger on the city or its people. Not quite Italian or Slavic, there is rude mixture of genetic throwback which makes the Venetians fiery and hot-blooded and saturnine and big faced. These resourceful, mercantile amphibians rule their intriguing and mysterious city with contempt and indifference to outsiders.
