I am having an OMFG moment. Palpitating, palm sweating, eyes bulging fashion moment. If you have not yet checked out Fendi's FW 11/12 RTW go and do it. As a LGL (Leather Goods Lover) and having contracted the CBD (Carrie Bradshaw Disease) this collection has me reeling! The subdued colour pallet, the attention to cordwained vintage detailing, menswear attributes, contrast with exotic skins... Fendi.. you had me at bongiorno.

Noodle Doodle Doo!

Soup, soup a doop.

Brussels sprout and caramelised onion soup!

feeds: 6
takes: 1.5 hrs
tastes: amazeballs


  • créme fraiche

  • smoked paprika or cayenne pepper


    Put the onions into a pan with the butter, cover and sweat over a gentle heat for about 30-40 minutes until the onions are very tender and soft.

Sprinkle over the sugar and cook, uncovered, for another 10-15 minutes until the onions are lightly coloured and look a little like jammy.

Add the sprouts and thyme and stir around.

Pour in the stock and season with salt, paprika and pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 15 minutes until the sprouts are tender.

Cool slightly, remove the thyme sprig, then liquidise in two batches.

Serve piping hot with a spoonful of créme fraiche or yoghurt in each bowl and a light dusting of paprika or cayenne.

... aren't I just a Little Miss.Julia Julia...

Size 38. Please.

I have a total heart-on>

Aside from being a total vagenius, Stefano Cicconardi is one of the most mind blowingly creative people on this planet. He is the H.D.I.C. (head dick in charge) at KOOK Artgency ....just go to gooogle translate to make it into english.... These guys mean business.

You know how there are some marketing people and places out there who are like .... hummm.. should I wear the "Ck1" or the "Blue Water" today ??? smarr smarr smargity smarr smarr??? Well KOOK tells these pansies to go rub on some "aqua di toiletta" grab their manties and then throws them down into the ichiban soup line faster that you can say go go gadget poop shoot.

KOOK Artgency is a more unconventional communication agency that rules in guerrilla, viral, street, art and digital marketing. So they produce highly strategic effects by making their work, WORK for you. Basically they are masters of designs and develop graphic, editorial, audiovisual and visual art formats.

Based in Rome. Work all over. Check then out.

Now back to Stefano.

I was watching Candy -1968 the other night and it dawned on me that Ringo and Stef have quite the resemblance.
