Five things to read, see, watch and do on the internet. From us, to you. Simple.


We thought we loved Nigel Slater the most, until he took part in a Mumsnet chat this week.  Nigel revealed his favourite and worst dishes as well as sharing lots of cookery tips. Read the web chat here and if you haven’t already, pick up the beautiful Kitchen Diaries II.

You can follow Nigel on twitter, he’s @realnigelslater.





A site like Kanye Wes has been long overdue. It just makes so much sense: Kanye West lyrics layered onto stills from Wes Anderson films.  Give this site to someone for Christmas and they’ll enjoy a year of the most perfect bright and foul-mouthed screen savers.





Next year London’s Southbank Centre will celebrate the seminal book on music, The Rest Is Noise: The Soundtrack of the 20th Century, written by our author Alex Ross.

We’re so excited to see this book come alive. Read the book now if you haven’t already.
