WHO: CLARE PRESS
WHAT: DESIGNER FOR MRS PRESS
FFF LOVES… Clare’s colour coordinated dress and cocktail ensemble.
What are your staples?
Jarslberg cheese, a lovely creamy brie, parmesan, maybe a chunk of something blue - we are cheese fiends in our house, but does it count if it’s in the fridge? In the pantry, it’s penne pasta, anchovies, olives, capers, San Pellegrino mineral water – I down bottles of the stuff every day.
What are your indulgences?
Charbonnel et Walker violet and rose creams – nothing beats eating chocolates in bed.
What can’t you live without?
Billecart-Salmon champagne and Sea Salt Kettle Chips.
What is past its use-by-date?
I seem to buy a melon every week just to throw it away.
What is your pantry craving?
Sonoma sour dough bread.
