Come next month, your beach-read addled brain will, no doubt, be crying out for some intellectual stimuli. So we’ve found you a suitably improving tome. No don’t stop reading… it involves alcohol.
Make Mine a Martini by cool food writer and broadcaster Kay Plunkett-Hogge is a round-up of 80 of her favourite cocktails and 50 delicious canapés compiled as a guide to planning the perfect party. Recipes from her favourite bar smiths around the globe include everything from the Martini to the Margarita alongside mouth-watering bites such as Vodka & Caraway Cured Salmon, Pork Crackling with Rosemary & Fennel and Cervice Shots plus plenty of boozy stories and anecdotes.
A former model agent and movie co-ordinator, Plunkett-Hogge also runs a bespoke catering company for the fashion industry, Kay Cooks For You – the ‘You’ being clients including photographer Alasdair McLellan, titles such as UK and American Glamour and French Vogue and brands from River Island to Stella McCartney.
Sure to leave you shaken and perhaps a little stirred…
