london weights

We mixed business with pleasure on our recent trip to Old Delhi when we went grocery shopping with a friend. We were mesmerized by one of the oldest shops selling spicy munchies.

While a team cooked up savory treats, the man in charge took and weighed your order. Everything was packaged to measure—and calculated using an age old scale and the original version of these London weights.

And even though it was terribly hot, we were so hungry we snapped up some spiced cashews!


10 essentials: ryan

2. Bowers & Wilkins Speakers. Their design is fantastic and the sound quality is excellent. I love music so they’re a must have.

3. Classic Cars, especially the Triumph TR3—all models. I love the history and tradition of Triumph, their cars and motorcycles.

4. Chesterfield sofas. I love their tradition and I love leather.

5. Christmas.

6.  GQ Magazine is one of my favorite magazines.  It has a classic heritage yet continues to evolve.  It is always different and always extremely well written.

7. Navy. My favorite color—it’s classic yet modern so it will never be out of style.

8. The stratus bed. The design is beautiful and slipcovers can be very modern and are always classic.

9. The 60’s, “Mad Men”. I love the styles and the JFK era intrigues me.

10. Nantucket. It’s really beautiful so I appreciate their strict rules on new architecture—not to mention the fresh seafood.

recipe: easy shrimp cocktail

Defrost pre-cooked colossal size shrimp from Trader Joe’s and serve on a bed of sliced lemons—their cocktail sauce is delicious too.

Fancy, savory, protein.

Saucey, salty, amore.
