Perfect Match

The classic British fry-up is great for breakfast in the winter or a leisurely Sunday brunch - and it's probably the ultimate hangover cure (the other 'cure' being moderation). It can have all sorts of additions, but the basic ingredients are fried eggs, thinly cut beefsteak, sausages, bacon and some sort of starch. My Lebanese friends insist on adding rare liver.

what a corker

This holiday season, the 'only way' to carry your champagne around is in one of Krug's Escape Artist Collection trunks. With just one set of three trunks for sale in Hong Kong, they are the ultimate in limited-edition luxe.

Perfect Match

It's amazing how the hard-working muscle of a scallop can be so succulent and tender. But the delicate, protein texture can easily turn into cardboard if over-heated. Scallops also have a tendency to shrink, which squeezes out their delicious juices.
