TABLE TALK #57
Welcome to Table Talk. If you're new here, it's lovely to have you. If you're a regular, you will know that this is your weekly newsletter equivalent to the best of dinner table conversation. Ideas to think on, to entertain, to share.
This week we are talking about making the effort: why we don't do it, why we should and how we can. But first, three good things.
🍡 AMUSE-BOUCHES 🍡Happy Thanksgiving: a different kind of pumpkin spice to celebrate the occasion.
Sara Berman’s Closet: an inspiring short film about the joy of an ordinary life.
I’m not crying, you are!: the new John Lewis Christmas ad is here.
🍝 MAIN COURSE 🍝
A couple of years ago, Jamie Oliver visited New York for his cooking show, “Jamie’s American Road Trip”. During this episode, he visits a renegade restaurant hosted in someone’s home, where a group of strangers gather to dine and eat together. At the time of filming in 2009, the concept was revolutionary. And for a food-lover such as Jamie, the allure is understandable: strip back all the pomp and ceremony and price tag of an established eatery, and you are left with what is most important. Good food enjoyed in good company.
🍮 SWEET ENDINGS 🍮
Wednesday's book club.Every now and then, a book comes along that rearranges the way you see the world. Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo is one of those novels. Poetic, funny and unapologetic, it is a poignant exploration of gender, race and sexuality in Britain and beyond.
🍷 WHAT'S NEW
Whilst our website gives you the chance to have our wines delivered straight to your door, we fully understand the joy of going into a shop, browsing beautiful bottles and walking away with one to enjoy later.
WEDNESDAY'S DOMAINE? 🍷
It’s for that reason that we work so hard to get our wines into places that align with our worldview and to date, largely owing to time and resources on our side, almost all of those have been in London. I’m pleased to say that our wares can soon be found across Norfolk and Suffolk as we make our debut in all Adnams stores this November - go forth, enjoy and please do spread the word.
Finally, we know you’re all busy people but we’d love to invite you to join us at Christie’s Artisans & Makers event on Friday 2 December - ticketsare free, the art is most definitely not and it will all be wrapped up by 9PM making it the perfect way to start an evening.That's all for now. See you next week.The Wednesday's Domaine Team.
