WITH LOCKDOWN PART II IN FULL SWING, A GOOD RECOMMENDATION HAS ONCE AGAIN BECOME OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE. IN THAT SPIRIT, WE THOUGHT WE’D PUT TOGETHER A COLLECTION OF SOME OF THE THINGS WE LOVE TO KEEP YOU ENTERTAINED IN THE WEEKS AHEAD.
🍽 TO COOK 🍽
This cookbook is truly scrumptious; whether you’re a meat-eater, a vegetarian, a vegan or somewhere in between. Think curries, noodles and rice packed full of the Eastern flavours that we love. Keep a beady out for the Coconut Rice with Aubergines and Pickled Cucumber recipe; it’s our very favourite.
📺 TO WATCH 📺
Particularly pertinent in the wake of the American election result, The Comey Rule really is a must-see. Top notch acting documenting a momentous moment in American history: the 2016 Clinton vs Trump presidential election. Special shout out to Brendan Gleeson for a flawless performance as Donald Trump. Available to watch on Sky Atlantic.
📚 TO READ 📚
Restoration remains the Eponine firm favourite; the book to be beaten. It’s a hug of a novel; packed full of adventure and surprises. It will have you laughing and weeping in equal measure. It also features the most unique, funny and unlikely of protagonists. Little tip: once you’ve finished it, move on to the sequel Merivel, just as wonderful.
📻 TO LISTEN 📻
Each week comedians Ed Gamble and James Acaster interview a special guest about their dream meal. This is a podcast for comedy and food lovers alike, and is certain to have you in stitches (something we all need in bundles at the moment). Favourite interviewees include: Ivo Graham, Romesh Ranganathan and Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
💃🏽 TO DANCE 💃🏽
Sadly this year has presented less opportunities to dance than usual, though this should not stop you. Go to the Eponine Spotify and head straight to our Night Time playlist, which was created to get your toes, and the toes of those around you, tapping. Each track is happy and uplifting and will give you a spring in your step: day or night.
💕 TO LOOK FORWARD TO 💕
What else could be more exciting to look forward to than Season 4 of The Crown? Only 5 more days until it’s release and it’s safe to say that we cannot wait. We have loved each season thus far and this promises to be another belter. Catch it on Netflix from the 15th November.
Enjoy! 💕 We’ll leave you with these words by Rupi Kaur; particularly fitting in the midst of lockdown:
