THE specks of black sea salt scattered across our asparagus risotto certainly made it look pretty. But this charcoal-enhanced condiment also added a sharp, earthy pungency to the dish. It's one of a new range of flavoured and very decorative "finishing" salts by Demitri's Feast. Mediterranean sea salt flakes are dried in natural pans first, then flavours such as lemon, rosemary and chilli are infused later, adding the delicate pastel hues. Therosemary salt was a winner in our house, paired with ...

Strength of character, self-belief, confidence ... Steve Menzies says the attitude is as good as he's seen at the club - and he's been there for what seems like forever.

A photographer has filmed a unique look into India, writes Gabriella Coslovich. Brothels are no places for children. But in Kolkata's notorious red-light district, Sonagachi, children abound. They fly kites on the rooftops of their squalid buildings while their mothers work. If they are housebound, they draw a curtain and look the other way. They scrub pans, fetch water and do food runs late at night, bringing back curry for their jaded mothers and drunken clients. They are intrinsic to the ...
