Shoot days 2-5 including curry.


 The days passed in a whirl of early mornings and late nights, split shifts, helicopter dust, flat tires and finicky props. At the stone cottages we left behind a field of crushed snowdrops.
 

 Somehow I managed to fit in the August dinner club at The Cookshop on friday night. 'A Feast of Curries'. They keep these affairs small - it was like going to eat at someone's house. The okra was really good and the chutney the best I've EVER tasted - tamarind/date/chili/ginger, thick and jammy.
I like The Cookshop and the people who run it. Definitely be going back there for breakfast.
