Liquid gold

The Art of Living According to Joe Beef

The Art of Living According to Joe Beef By David McMillan, Frederic Morin and Meredith Erickson

The title of this book makes it sound like an aspirational lifestyle guide by some hot and hunky ex-porn star-turned-respectable businessman (stranger things have happened); but the subtitle - A Cookbook of Sorts - saves the day.

Oat Biscuits

Nairn's Oat Biscuits Mixed Berries

HK$31.20 for 200g, Great

A pack (five pieces) of these wonderfully fruity biscuits kept me going as I missed lunch one busy workday. Full of dried cranberries and flavoured with raspberry, it has just the right sweetness and texture.

Verdict: A pack - or two - paired with tea makes a perfect snack.
