Banksy Death Art It's startling, but there is a point to it. Banksy often touches on very political subjects - to raise awareness about what is truly going on in society. But it is easy to interpret his work to mean other things. For example - this piece focuses on children and their innocence (depicted through the pink butterflies - which are predominantly used to represent blood and death) but also war and culpability through suicide.
BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH CHESTNUTS, PANCETTA AND PARSLEY The sprout recipe below is really only a slight detour from the traditional route. By all means, stick to the orthodox if you prefer by adding only buttery chestnuts to the Brussels sprouts, but what follows is now my own traditional way of cooking them. There is a lot of parsley, I know, but think of it as another vegetable ingredient rather than a garnish.

Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
