Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

I found time to read Where’d You Go, Ber­nadette by Maria Sem­ple. In it, I trav­elled to Antarc­tica, had a crash course in mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture and learnt about the in­ner work­ings of Mi­crosoft’s Seat­tle of­fices, chuck­ling the whole time – a must-read. Shreeja Ravin­dranathan, life­style writer It’s all about #salt­bae for me this week­end. I booked a ta­ble at Nusr-et the same day that a video of Turk­ish butcher Nus­ret Gökçe slap­ping a fil­let of beef into sub­mis­sion went vi­ral. While the rest of the world just gets to watch his videos, Dubai’s din­ers get to see his 50 shades of meat in the flesh. Natalie Long, ed­i­tor Since last week, I have had the worst cold ever, so I spent most of the week­end on the sofa un­der a blan­ket. Feel­ing sorry for my­self, I cheered up and warmed up with a home­made fish pie. OK, so I didn’t make the pas­try, but the rest was all my own work, and it was de­li­cious.
