The Queen in the Kitchen

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know” Diane Arbus

My favourite way of spending a Sunday afternoon, and avoiding homework, used to be to unzip my mum’s tartan suitcase filled with photos collected since her childhood. On the hallway shelves sat large, beautifully presented photo albums, containing what were to be considered the ‘good’ […]

Heritage, where do we find our heritage? My mother’s family are Scottish, yet she was born in South Africa. My father’s family are fiercely Welsh (my grandfather Cliff Bere wrote the Welsh Republican Movement Manifesto and had a taste for burning the Union Jack) yet my […]

Friday is cocktail and pizza night chez Domaine Carret!

Whitney Marie and I started early with some mulled wine in the snow. It may not be Christmas any more, but since the snow has fallen, warm cocktails are the most tempting option. Mulled wine is a warm cocktail, right?

There are many variations on mulled wine, but this is what we had in the kitchen cupboard:

Two bottles of Red Wine

A couple of shots of Armagnac

The zest of one Orange

The juice of one Orange

Three Cinnamon sticks

Six Cloves

Three Star Anise

A thumb of fresh Ginger

Honey (or Sugar if you prefer) to taste

Pop it all in the pot and heat slowly for twenty minutes without letting it boil, then ladle into a warmed teapot and pour! It also goes particularly well with an enormous bowl of popcorn… and a Ryan Gosling film. That may just be a personal choice.

To see the delicious pizzas and find out Whitney Marie’s recipe for a perfect base, visit toowhittoquit. Yum!
