Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

I’ve been on a mis­sion to find Mex­i­can corn tor­tillas – the fresh, soft kind you’d use to make a taco, or serve with eggs for break­fast (they’re gluten­free!). In lieu of mak­ing them my­self (I might!) I picked up a stack at Taco Bar­rio in Sil­i­con Oa­sis – they have a ma­chine crank­ing out the warm, scented flat­breads. I used them for a shrimp taco night. Natalie Long, ed­i­tor TV is the blank thing that dom­i­nates my liv­ing room. How­ever, this week that’s changed. I’m now ob­sessed with White Gold, a TV se­ries set in Es­sex circa 1983 (yes, that’s Gos­sip Girl’s Ed West­wick). It fol­lows the an­tics of three dou­ble-glaz­ing sales­men who will do any­thing to clinch the deal. The mu­sic is on point, as is their ban­ter and the ’80s fash­ion. Cheeky and charm­ing!
