We had some rhubarb in the garden so I tried a rhubarb recipe from this beautiful book by Jamie Oliver. It's 'rhubarb and sticky stem ginger crumble' and I can highly recommend it if you're a R fan- or a ginger fan for that matter. We ate it hot, with some whipped cream. The recipe is posted online too- here.
In other British inspiration news, I found a quote from Stephen Fry a few days ago and it's stayed in my head since then- here it is. Brilliant and beautiful, I think.
“I suppose the thing I would most like to have known or be reassured about is that in the world, what counts more than talent, what counts more than energy or concentration or commitment or anything else, is kindness. The more in the world you encounter kindness and cheerfulness, the better the world always is. All the big words, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness.”
