A gift for a parting friend who went to live in Spain, so purposefully full of Britishness. I kept a photocopy for my kitchen, I like Marmite.
On the theme of kitchenalia, here’s another one featuring the knife and apple. I loved the drawings and painting of my tutor at art school, the late Tom Fairs, and the knife and apple is homage to his still lives. I wish I had 10% of his talent, 5% even. He was the most amazingly clever and inspiring man, and a wonderful artist and stained glass craftsman. His paintings are absolutely beautiful, have a look.
