The want list You might be ‘in the red’ post


Christmas, but that’s no reason to skimp on kitchen essentials. (And yes, a lobster necklace does count as an essential. Valentine’s Day is coming up, after all…)

1. Kilo lobster/crab cracker £4.50 We hate to shatter your illusions, but it turns out that lobsters don’t mate for life, walking around their tanks holding claws, as one Phoebe Buffay once declared. The promiscuous blighters only stay with their beloved for two weeks at a time, so don’t feel too bad about adding them to your Valentine’s menu this Feb. This cracker will make the job easier, too. Be sure to drench the beasties with garlic butter or smother them with cream and cheese. A bib, too, is obligatory. Available in store at Kitchens in Bath and Bristol and online. ✱ www.kitchenscookshop.co.uk


2. Capstan Pepper Mill £30.80 No romantic meal is complete without a grinding (insert comedy pause) of fresh black pepper (said in exaggerated Italian accent). This bad boy is a whopping 405mm tall, and would look handsome on any dinner table. Available in store at Vinegar Hill in Bath and Clifton and online. ✱ vinegarhill.co.uk


3. Falcon Enamel Tea Pot £15.95 Whether you’re planning a dreamy tea for two or want to hide under a blanket and watch Bridget Jones in your jim jams on Feb 14, sobbing into a brew, this


48


classic enamel teapot in pillar-box red from Falcon will ensure you do it in style. It’s durable (thanks to the steel and enamel) but lightweight and can be popped in the oven, over the hob (gas or electric) and into the dishwasher too. Available online. ✱ www.howkapow.com.


4. My Five a Day Tea Towel £7 Nothing says “I love you” quite like a tea towel, especially one made exclusively for Howkapow by Kirsty Norton. It also reminds us of the important things in life. So you’ll wash, we’ll dry, right? Available online. ✱ www.howkapow.com


5. Tatty Devine Lobster Necklace £36 You could give her diamonds or a pearl necklace, but we all know that a proper foodie would think that this crustacean necklace by quirky British designer Tatty Devine is, like, to swoon for. For starters, it’s made of 12 separate pieces, which are jointed (like the real thing) so that its body will move with the wearer. Secondly, its claws even open and close! You know you want it… and make it snappy! This marine mammoth also comes in ‘giant’ size, with extra embellishment, for £123. Available in store at Soma Gallery in Clifton Village and online. ✱ somagallery.co.uk
