The week in pictures

In db news, our intrepid chairman Anthony Hawser popped over to Casa el Famós in Spain for “the best paella in Valencia” with the drinks business’ founding publisher, Charlotte Hey.

Hey, an old hand when it comes to the world of Spanish wine, began working in wine in the early 90s, and moved into publishing at the end of the decade when she joined Harpers, eventually becoming publishing director and executive director of the International Wine and Spirit Competition. She left Harpers in 2002 to launch the publication you’re reading right now. Hey left in 2012, and is now the director of Bespoke Drinks Media.

But what’s so great about Casa el Famós? It is one of the oldest restaurants in Valencia. Casa el Famós, which has been run by five generations of the same family of Valencians, began trading back in the 19th Century, preparing its paellas in the traditional manner over a woodfire. We don’t blame them for poking their heads round the back room to see where the magic happens.
