Coudal wonders today,

“how much mushroom risotto would this make?”


TNM finds these even more delicious:

Magic mushrooms by Zaha Hadid, in Kensington Gardens.

Read about them and the party about them, here.

Zaha says…

“Some winters ago, I flew from New York to Chicago in the snow; at sunset, the landscape and cityscapes became no colours other than starkly contrasted black and white, while the rivers and lakes were blood red. Amazing. You wouldn’t call that a nice landscape, but it had the quality of light and life I would love to get into our buildings.”

Don’t know if I’ve ever seen the rivers and lakes blood red. Except in mythology. But I like her idea of getting that light and life into buildings.
