The week in pictures

And finally… db’s resident art lover, Lucy Shaw, was delighted to be invited to St James’s Court, part of the Taj hotel group, to an art and food pairing dinner hosted by Bernadette Murphy, author of Van Gogh’s Ear.

During the dinner Bernadatte talked through the major events in Van Gogh’s life, including a brief spell of flat sharing with Paul Gauguin at his little yellow house in Arles. Among the dishes we tried were this tuna tartare dish with mushroom cappuccino in a hat tip to Van Gogh’s obsession with Japanese prints. Another dish, a blueberry granita with apple jelly, reflected Van Gogh’s arrival in Provence during a rare moment of snow.

Among the wines on pour was this Merlot dominant Côtes de Bordeaux from Château de Ricard, a plush drop full of blackberries and spice.
