FAVOURITE THINGS

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - TV TRIVIA -

She’s best known as Sally on Home And Away, but this week Kate Ritchie takes a break from the soapie to star in ABC’s new Thurs­day night com­edy It’s A Date. She sat down with TV Guide to share her favourite things. EN­TER­TAIN­MENT Movie: Once. It tears my heart out ev­ery time. And on a hap­pier note, An­i­mal King­dom. Book: The Magic Far­away Tree by Enid Bly­ton al­ways touches my in­ner­child. It’s so nice that my friend’s chil­dren are now read­ing it too. TV show: UK dra­mas Broad­church, The Young Ones and Luther. In fact, any­thing Bri­tish. Band or singer: Right now, I’d have to say Bey­once. I can­not wait for Mrs Carter to come to town! Al­bum: From The Roots Up by Delilah. Karaoke song: Karaoke? Noth­ing makes my skin crawl like the thought of karaoke. Gadget: I don’t do gad­gets and I sup­pose a KitchenAid doesn’t count? LIFE­STYLE Hol­i­day spot: The Barossa, The Whit­sun­days and, for sen­ti­men­tal value, Port Mac­quarie. Things to do on the week­end: Eat poached eggs, walk the dog and that’s about it. Place to go to re­lax: Italy’s the Amalfi Coast – if only. Hobby: Col­lect­ing linen and sta­tionery. Sport to fol­low or play: I absolutely love the ten­nis. To watch and to play (badly) but you can’t beat a game of NRL Fri­day night football. Din­ner con­ver­sa­tion top­ics: The Royal baby, in­ter­net dat­ing and the elec­tion. HOME Room in your home: I am ren­o­vat­ing at the mo­ment so that is yet to be de­cided. My guess will be the walk-in­robe. Place to hide from ev­ery­one: If I told you that then it would no longer be my hid­ing spot. Art piece: A very tiny paint­ing of a lion that I own by the artist David Shep­herd. I can’t be­gin to ex­plain how beau­ti­ful it is and what it means to me. Item you can’t live with­out: My tweez­ers and my Vase­line Cocoa But­ter moisturiser. Lux­ury prod­uct: The Emi­rates bed. It does not en­cour­age one to start the day, I’m afraid. FOOD Meal of all time: The fet­tuc­cine al tartu­fovo at Syd­ney’s Buon Ri­cordo. Dish to cook: Whole salmon be­cause that usu­ally means it’s Christ­mas. Fam­ily recipe: That would prob­a­bly be tuna mor­nay . . . and I loathe it. In­gre­di­ent: Home­made stock. How did I ever live with­out it? Guilty plea­sure: Schooners. Bar: Palmer & Co in Syd­ney CBD and Jimmy Liks at Potts Point in Syd­ney (pic­tured). Restau­rant: Le Club 55 in the south of France. Cafe: The one that opens early and makes the cof­fee strong and snappy.

STYLE

Style icon: French ac­tor Marion Cotil­lard – thanks to Dior. Fash­ion de­signer: Aus­tralian de­signer Col­lette Din­ni­gan. Piece of cloth­ing: The clas­sic black Chanel jacket. One of which I am yet to own. Shop: Sel­fridges in Lon­don. It’s ab­so­lute heaven. Artist: Fred­erique Le­marc­hand. I dis­cov­ered her work in the lit­tle French town of Col­lioure and bought a stun­ning oil paint­ing af­ter 1000 glasses of Rose!
