Ever since the Dubai Water Canal opened, I’ve been want­ing to tour it. And I fi­nally did it one af­ter­noon re­cently on Gulf Craft’s lux­u­ri­ous No­mad 55 yacht. The nearly two-hour cruise was a de­light but I must ad­mit – a trip late in the evening would have been even bet­ter to en­joy the lights and a view of the beau­ti­ful wa­ter­fall.

The best part of the hol­i­day sea­son is catch­ing up with friends, so this year I was asked to make a dessert for our gath­er­ing. Noth­ing too fancy, my host said, so I got to work on a Ja­maican gin­ger sponge tri­fle made with ba­nana, fresh cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. I think I’m def­i­nitely in­vited back next year.

Week­ends mean telly time for me. And this week is not go­ing to be any dif­fer­ent as I have to watch Net­flix’s The Crown. I saw the trailer re­cently and was fas­ci­nated by Claire Foy, who plays the young Queen El­iz­a­beth. Mri­nal Shekar, deputy ed­i­tor
