Not sure I really have any favourite books, but I do love reading,
both fiction and non-fiction. One of the best I read recently was
Periodic Tales about the elements. I must admit it doesn't sound
exactly riveting but it was fascinating. I also enjoyed Just My
Type, a book about all the different fonts and typefaces that we
see and take for granted. I think I may have slightly geekish
Movies – I’m quite a romantic, and my favourite film without doubt
is Casablanca, which I must have seen 20 times. But I enjoy the
cinema and go every few weeks. My funniest film ever was and still
is Life of Brian, even though I practically know it off by heart.
And Pulp Fiction - I love the dance sequence to Teenage
Musical tastes are a bit like my reading – varied. I love the more
romantic type of opera, and I often take in a trip to the local
opera when I'm travelling. I went to the Verona Opera Festival a
couple of years ago and it was brilliant (Italy's probably my
favourite country, which made it even better).
Food. Well I hate sprouts and cauliflower. Other than that I enjoy
most types of food, but as I've got older I've realised I prefer
simple but high quality food to elaborate restaurant confections
and all the pretension that goes with it.
My favourite food of all time is salt baked dorado, which I have
every year at Juan y Andrea, a restaurant in Formentera that I
visit at least once a year - http://www.juanyandrea.com/en
