‘Spicy titbits and an infectious ebullience’ | From the Slightly Foxed Archives

Greetings from Hoxton Square, where we’ve had a pleasingly busy week catching up with the many orders that came in over the Easter break for which, as ever, we send you our great thanks.

In this month’s article from our rich archive of back issues (all kept in print in perpetuity should you ever want to stock up) we’re going behind the scenes at a ‘Helluva Hotel’ with Clive Unger-Hamilton, whose article in Slightly Foxed Issue 18 delves into Ludwig Bemelmans’s classic kitchen memoir, Hotel Splendide.

Please find an extract from Clive’s article below, together with a link to read the full piece on the Slightly Foxed website. You’ll also find a selection of other choice ‘Secrets of the Kitchen’ reading recommendations, as well as details about a small Literary Festival coming up this month in the beautiful Cotswolds village of Bibury.

With best wishes from the SF office staff

Jess, Isabel, Rebecca, Izzy & Jennie
