Browns was a lovely event. The management were very nice to me and I met some very lovely people. We nearly ran out of cocktails. I was down to my last bottle of Champagne.

The photos of Sean Connery posing with what I know now to be an air pistol!! But wearing Turnbull and Asser shirt and suit.

IL PELLICANO : COLIN FIELD
Why am I in love with « Il Pellicano ». Is it for the glorious view from the almost island of Porto Ercole ? Or is it that sublime cooking experienced in both Restaurants whilst brushing shoulders with some of the most beautiful, successful and interesting people on earth ?
The amazing Bellinis served by Federico Morosi, the Head bartender ? The swimming pool looking out onto the yachts of millionares that take a zodiac just to enj(...)
